We seem to be programmed to die

Response to Speaking of BP

 

Why don't people consider it an emergency that demands a technological solution from somewhere, when a person is choking on his last breaths in a hospice care facility? We seem to be programmed that death from ageing and disease is inevitable and to be accepted, yet consider it an emergency to be acted on and resolved if someone, say, is dying from an automobile accident.

That is really not much different from the way all animal life acts, by programmed instinct.

Maybe the solution is to find a way to change our programming. Perhaps it is simply a matter of turning a few switches on or off in our DNA.

The trouble with that of course is that those with the knowledge on how to do that kind of thing are not interested, since they are programmed to die.

So it goes,

FD
