Neologism: parafnordia

I bring a humble fnord offering:

parafnordia: An uneasy fear of something that one cannot quite name, caused by something that one cannot quite see, inspired by Robert Anton Wilson's use of the word "fnord", which is a cause of widespread uneasiness, fear, and unrest in printed literature.

I totally take credit for making it up, as it doesn't turn up on Google and a friend of mine declared that it was "a cool new word" when I coined it. :)
