If people would care about their mortality they would actually start doing
something about it. Like, living healthy, going to checkups, go on CR,
invest into life extension, cryonics R&D, what have you.
As long as they smoke, drink, glutton & engage in high risk behaviour
people don't care a fig about their mortality, or lack of immortality.
