Doomed To Repeat It

Our brains shield us from the idea of our own deaths, making us unable to grasp our own mortality,
according to a new study.

On one level, everybody knows that they are going to die,
said study lead author Yair Dor-Ziderman,
who was a doctoral student at the Bar Ilan University in Israel
at the time of the study. But Dor-Ziderman and his team hypothesized
that when it comes to our own deaths, there's something in our brains
that simply can't understand "the idea of ending, of nothing,
of complete annihilation."

Your Brain 'Shields' Itself from the Existential Threat of Death
