Eternal life solves only one problem

Some people say, and apparently believe, that eternal life is not something which interest or attracts them: that they can do very well without it (Thank you very much!).

They notice that eternal life has all sorts of problems about it - that leaves all sorts of problems untouched. This is correct, indeed, eternal life does not solve any problems: except one.

That problem, is the problem of mortality. And the problem of mortality is that it means that nothing really matters, ultimately.

And the problem of mortality is so fundamental that that unless it be solved, then nothing is possible, ultimately.

So eternal life is necessary for anything of significance to matter, or to be possible.

Other than that, eternal life is trivial.
