Whether we like it or not, our notions of aging, death and dying are media-taught. We are bombarded by images of perpetual youth and the consistent promise that with the right products the inevitable deterioration of old age can be deferred. What we see on television, in adverts, magazines, the movies and online, would have us believe that our life can be extended almost without limit, nature constantly reminds us that the opposite is true. The lessons we can learn from nature about our own mortality are filled with a set of surprising and often visually startling possibilities.
