Someone afflicted could have a phobia of birds, colours or indoor and outdoor spaces; really virtually anything they can conjure in their minds and make comparisons with, in the real world. Depending on the severity of the phobia, you will be playing out your life in Troubled Mind Sky or totally immersed in Dangerous Mind Sky.
