    What Iwakar said...these reminders can be very disturbing.
    I hear people in the medical field say some pretty psychopathic shit and usually those who are below the doctors like the dumb fukc nurses and paramedics.

    At OP. I think there is something to be said about the world moving on as if it never happened. If every death around us is allowed to affect everyone there would be no illusion of our own years and years to live. Mortality could easily become a dominate factor in our thought process. Seems better to pretend death doesn't exist than to allow it to take hold of one’s mind, that and seeing death is generally depressing. No one has the time or attention to take notice of every death; not that in intend upon lecturing. Just my thoughts.
    Put it this way, if we lived in tribe culture or a small city or town where everyone knew each other the death would mean something. Because we live in a society where we have zero connection to one another everyone seems like a blur, a nobody, our experiences with day to day people come and go. Our genetics are still old, about 10,000 years old our minds are fit for this type of environment it's only in the last century did we have to adapt to globalization and abandon our tribe.

    Of course, but when a tribe numbers the millions we create sub-tribes to adapt. Neighborhoods, career fields, towns, etc. We care for those in our tribes much more deeply than those "outsiders". We don't have time for them.

    No need to generalize about them. Depends more on the person in the outfit than the outfit itself.

    This does not make sense to me.. How are the two things different?

    It doesn't make sense to me that you are this blissfully unaware of how you come across at times.

    Yes, there is a lot of immaturity in this topic here. I think attitudes would change if there was actual experience of death combined with some self awareness.

    There is no community or sub tribe only our immediate family.
