Awareness Of Mortality...

Btw, regardless of ones religion and or religious beliefs and thoughts about what happens after death, the truth is, unlike other species who live blissfully unaware of their impending demise, most humans are conscious of th fact that someday they will die. It's truth that some species react when one of their own has died. It is unlikely that they actually think about death, that of others or their own.
This knowledge of mortality also spurs humans on to great achievements, to making the most out of the lives they have. Bottom Line: "Our human response to the dual reality of being alive and having to die, knowing we are going to die not only places an acknowledged limit upon our lives, it also gives a special intensity and poignancy to the time we are given to live and love."
