Thoughts on death

My mother Anna F. died a few days ago after a long illness. For the first time, I have seen a loved one dying. I had seen her aging in the last few years, perhaps that was even worse.
Aging and death are not necessary, they are just a horrible, stupid, cruel and pointless waste.
Yes, death has been a tool of evolution, and we owe it the development of our mind. But I believe our mind itself can now offer evolution a much better tool. By mastering the sciences ad technologies of life and information, we will take full control of our development and make aging and death ugly things of the past. In memory of Anna, I will do my best to help achieving this goal.
I only hope it is soon.
