Time itself once didn't exist, because there was nothing to show its passage, as there were no stars, no physical processes, nothing.

Although Cracked is a humor site, this article successfully demonstrates why immortality is awful for humans, and why we need death so much (basically, if we didn't die, we would go insane).

Basically, it all boils down to this, that this life is nothing short of a flowering quantum shift of unlimited rebirth. Science tells us that the essence of nature is non-locality. The cosmos is beaming with morphogenic fields.
