After Life: The Strange Science Of Decay

I admit that the thought of death (my own and my loved ones) scares me. Many people like to think and fantasize about immortality and eternal youth. But what for? What is so appealing about getting to live forever?

I see the whole process of dying as sacrosanct. Why is death and decay important in the cycle of life? Here's something you need to see. Being reborn not in the biblical sense but in a more profound way than it. Life relies on death. Death paves way for life. We need not fear it.

I guess this understanding of death, decay and dying is helping me be comfortable with the idea and natural flow of life. I'd love to live longer though but not forever.
