I've lost some of the attributes for this dialogue:
>>>If people would care about their mortality they would actually start
>>>doing something about it.
>>Are you saying that people do NOT care about their mortality? They are
>>totally indifferent to the idea of their own death?
Next, Elpida Alteyus:
>they are not indifferent to the idea of their own death, they are afraid of
>it, but they are refusing to believe it can happen to them (not all of
>them, but the majority)
>so they act as they act....
That may be an explanation for a few, but I think there is
a better and broader explanation for why people do not live
in a way so as to maximize their lifespan. This explanation
was succinctly said by my friend Jeff Hummel:
"There is more to life than avoiding death."
