Coming to awareness of mortality 'raises questions about immortality, about whether immortality exists, and, if so, precisely how.
With immortality, or the lack thereof, at stake, along with one's life and the future of one's fellow human beings, especially biological and/or cultural offspring -- no wonder [awareness of mortality], as experienced, is so definitive.'
