Death matters – no kidding!

Now I ask: what is the matter with us, or what could be so special about us, that we are so uniquely oblivious to – or perhaps beyond – death? Are we superior to all those civilizations through the millenia that gave this event so much importance? Could that really be true? The minimal thought, time and effort we give the subject suggests we just might be that conceited, that arrogant. And that naive.
