For the first time, this syndrome was detected in prisoners who were terrified by the length of the conviction, making his departure unreal. When the initial intensity of the symptoms diminishes with time, the patient turns into a phlegmatic, automatically existing in the conditions of prison isolation, not interested in anything, living with the primitive needs of today. This understanding is the most common, therefore the term “prison neurosis” is often used as a synonym for chronophobia.

Manifested in an unconscious form as a protective mechanism. This phobia can be obtained in real life because of the fear of something related to people and emotional trauma from people. Accompanying many nervous disorders and mental illness. First described by Karl Westphal.

9. Tafofobiya - fear of being buried alive.
Tafofofobiya (from the ancient Greek. Τάφος - coffin, grave and φόβος - fear) - fear of burial and funeral accessories, as well as fear of burial alive; one of the basic phobias of the human psyche. In the medical-psychiatric literature is traditionally included in a number of other names that indicate similar mental disorders - claustrophobia (fear of a closed space), niktofobiya (fear of the dark), etc.
Back in 1772, the Duke of Mecklenburg introduced a mandatory postponement of the funeral until the third day after his death in order to prevent a possible burial alive. Soon, this measure was adopted in several European countries, and it was approved, for example, by the philosopher Moses Mendelssohn. In the XIX century, the fear of being buried alive became a fairly common phobia. This state of affairs led to the fact that, beginning in the second half of the XIX century and up to 1934, in the countries of Europe and North America special “safe coffins” were patented and produced with means of salvation for the deceased alive. These funds would allow those buried by mistake to signal other people or to get out of the grave on their own. In addition, some crypts were equipped with similar devices. Nevertheless, there is no evidence that these rescue tools really helped anyone.
A number of famous personalities experienced the fear of being buried alive. For example, Gogol and Tsvetaeva were afraid to be buried alive and specifically emphasized this - Gogol in "Selected places from correspondence with friends", Tsvetaeva in a suicide note before suicide (a common legend that Gogol was indeed buried alive - during exhumation his body was found lying in a coffin - untenable). The famous victim of the fear of burial alive was Alfred Nobel, who had this fear "hereditary" - his father, inventor Emmanuel Nobel, was also afraid to be buried alive and even invented one of the first "safe coffins". The British writer Wilkie Collins also suffered from this phobia, and in such a strong form that he left a “suicide note” every night in which he asked the reader to carefully verify his death if he did not wake up. For the same reason, the philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer bequeathed to wait with his funeral five days after his death, as a result of which the philosopher’s funeral was hampered by the smell of decomposition of the body.
A kind of legend has become a resident of Manchester, Hanna Bezuik, a rich Englishwoman, who was experiencing a pathological fear of mistaken burial alive (and she had for this reason: her brother had almost been buried alive by mistake). In accordance with the testament, Hanna Bezwick’s body after her death in 1758 was embalmed and preserved for more than a hundred years without burial “to periodically check for signs of life”. During its existence, the mummy of Hanna Bezuik has become widely known under the name of the Manchester mummy, for several decades being an exhibit of the museum of the Manchester Society of Natural Sciences. Only in 1868, after the recognition of Hannah Bezwick "irrevocably and undoubtedly dead," her body was finally buried.
10. Philophobia - fear of falling in love.
Philophony - collecting music, vocal and other sound recordings on various types of audio carriers with possible categorization by specific topics, authors, performers, composers, musical directions, etc. Philophony, in contrast to music fans, is characterized by an emphasis on searching, storing and cataloging music, rather than on its creative features.
As a collection area emerged at the beginning of the XX century. and the most widespread since the 1940-50s. in connection with the development of the record industry. Up until the last quarter of the 20th century, the cataloging of the record libraries was almost identical to the library card rationing systems, where audio recording played the role of the book as an atomic component of the catalog. Catalogs were usually kept on cards that included the plate number, the type of record, when and by which company this record was released, the order of the works recorded on it, the names of the authors and performers. With the development of electronic computing systems, the cataloging of sound libraries has been simplified in library-like schemes.
Due to the relatively easy availability of music in the 2000s and new standards of digital music (mp3, webcasts, peer-to-peer networks), the phylophony became more and more noticeable as a phenomenon among private music collectors, which was also promoted by the emergence of a number of technical utilities.
