Anyway, here issomething to think about:

"Our fear of death, seems to me to be an ERROR of evolution. Many animals react instinctively with terror and flight at the approach of a predator. It is a healthy reaction, one that enables them to escape from danger but it is a terror that lasts an instant, not something that remains with them constantly. Natural selection has produced these big apes with hypotrophic frontal lobes with exaggerated ability to predict the future. It is a prerogative that is certainly useful but one that has placed before us a vision of our inevitable death...and this triggers the instinct of terror and flight. Basically, I believe that the fear of death is the result of an accidental and clumsy interference between two distinct evolutionary pressures. The product of bad, automatic connections in our brain rather than something that has any use or meaning. Everything has a limited duration. Even the human race itself." - Carlo Rovelli, The Order of Time.
