Why is it that everyone dreads, fears, remorses death when that is the most blatant and absolute truth and predictable in most cases?

If you are born, death is certain! Why is it that everyone dreads, fears, remorses death when that is the most blatant and absolute truth and predictable in most cases? Why not celebrate death!

    Dec 3 2011: I choose to celebrate life. It is all I know and I find it fascinating, dramatic, fun and worth living. Perhaps I'll say the same about death, but until then I'm consumed by life.

    Dec 3 2011: This seems to be a problem for people who believe that their own lives have a meaning, a purpose.

    Don't get me wrong ; if immortality is achieved within my lifetime, i'll seize it, out of curiosity...
