A large number of people are reporting a fear of holes. The reaction is so severe that even seeing photos of holes can set off a panic attack. That is a called a trigger. The condition is called trypophobia. According to my other website Trypophobia.com, “Trypophobia is a weird kind of phobia and it can generally be considered as the fear of shapes.” The love of holes is called Trypomania, which is also being reported more and more often.
