I would think it would be a fear of Greek laws: νόμος It could also be a fear of nomograms, which are charts showing quick and dirty approximations
of variables. I think an old fashioned slide rule is an example, IIRC. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nomogram

I'd say it's just a generalized fear that you ain't gonna get no mo' nothin'.

Harrumph. I would have guessed that nomophobia was the fear of rules.
