why doesn't life choose to keep living - is evolution stupid or crazy in that case? All life promotes its own kind by reproduction. Life is designed or has chosen to reinforce its existence so that it will continue. It is a mandatory priority for life to continue its existence. Why does life not also choose to not die? Life is designed to reproduce and it is designed to die. Why does life decide to not program its cells to manage themselves so that they will reinforce themselves with methods or material that would be maintenance for nonstop survival? Life defends itself from damage. Does life psychologically enjoy the physical pain from the process of death, is it suicide because it chooses not to develop into an item that does not die? Perhaps death is protection from overpopulation and reproduction is protection from extinction? On the contrary, I don't think life can consciously fathom the potential of overpopulation when a population is not restricted into an immediate small space. I assume there is an error within the programming of the design life. There is no physical reason life should choose to not continue living, certainly the means are available. I think the error is caused from a cogito dilemma. The cogito has violated a rule that is not physical, only this could cause the error.
