why immortality?

Given that time and space constitute a unitary spacetime, isn't it
inconsistent or at best arbitrary for us to want to be temporally infinite
creatures when we aren't in the least concerned that we are physically
finite? I mean, imagine a 4-dimensional plot of our lives, with axes w,x,y,z.
Say w is the time axis. Why should we want the graph to be unbound on that
axis rather than x or z?

Actually, I think the above is pretty silly reasoning. Just thought I'd throw
it out there.
