    My smartphone is just not smart enough to show the numbers of the post which I understand are available for those using computers

    If you want me to check a post I am to lazy to count through the thread so will have to cut and paste

    That works better as an explanation of death than of failure to replicate - for starters because they aren't exact copies, but are instead the material from which selection is made, and they are the base for survival of the genes that structure the whole thing. That is, the more replications the more likely a really good variation will result, and selection have something to work with.

    I think the purpose of aging is to limit genetic issues over the species

    and when I think the soil is transforming
    into organic body with life but not gonna die then birthrate is linked to limited percentage of carbon on earth that is for another kind of ecosystem.

    That's just one run-on sentence. Sorry, I can't tell where one thought begins and one thought ends.

    Yes. Actually death is involved to food chain also and if they are not gonna die then they have to collect particles directly from soil for grow up.

    Thoughtful

    But consider if people didn't die except by accident

    A system form's to keep population stable as you seem to suggest by a limitation of carbon

    The ageing of the people would help greatly with their knowledge

    But death is correct and logical for them who are made of ordinary particles or compounds than immortality.

    Example as...

    Electromagnetic radiation is enough to decompose those things and EMR doesn't consider immortality.

    Correct

    However it might be possible for a species to develop a internal repair system capable of repairing damage caused by EMR

    EMR has no consciousness so incapable of considering anything

    EMR operates according to the laws of physics

    A living repair system capable of repairing the damage caused by EMR would also have to operate according to the laws of physics

    I see no reason why that would not be possible

    Death is the universes way of telling you to slow down.

    Origin: Is that comment your opinion, a claim, or a scientific fact, supported by your actual communication with the universe. If you are referencing a source, perhaps you can provide a reference. 'Rules is rules, ya' know . . .' TIC (Tongue-in-Cheek humor!)

    Death is part of the evolutionary process. It's an integral part of the adaptation process. It order to adapt, a species needs to reproduce. Reproduction allows a species to adapt to changing environmental conditions. Insects are good at adaptation. They also have very short life spans. The two are related. Larger organisms may have longer life spans, but as a general rule it's much more difficult for them to adapt to changing environmental conditions because they reproduce less frequently. The potential exception to that is man. Mankind is on the verge of being able to manipulate its DNA and consciously change its DNA. Mankind is on the verge of being able to not rely upon random genetic changes as an adaptation strategy. That's huge. When that happens, death becomes obsolete.
