What is it like to get old, then older, and move into a nursing home or care facility? What is happening to us as we face idle times and experience the need for special and determinate care? What happens next? Is life immortal? Although much has been written about the aging process, little has been written by one who is actually experiencing the process of dying. These questions are answered by the 92-year-old Harlan Carl Scheffler, who reflected on them in two essays written just before he passed away in April 2014. In his first essay Scheffler takes a humorous look at the interval between becoming aged and dying, a time, he says, that can be most rewarding. It is time when we can review our own lives and can learn what others have experienced through their span of years - and it can be most enjoyable and enlightening to family and friends. His second essay examines the evidence for life's immortality; it is treated as the natural adjunct, the extension and expansion of the initial phase of our lives, not the end. Surprisingly, he discovers that employing the light shed by today's technologies, we are assured that death truly is impossible.

The Myth of Methuselah and the Uncertainty of Death

The Myth of Methuselah and the Uncertainty of Death

This paper uses mortality fan charts to illustrate prospective future male mortality. These fan charts show both the most likely path of male mortality and the bands of uncertainty surrounding that path. The fan charts are based on a model of male mortality that is known to provide a good fit to recent UK mortality data. The fan charts suggest that there are clear limits to longevity, that future mortality rates are very uncertain and tend to become more uncertain the further ahead the forecast, and that forecasts of future mortality uncertainty must take account of uncertainty in the parameters of the underlying mortality model.

The goal of the present study is to use Terror Management Theory (TMT) as a vehicle for understanding rape myth acceptance. Terror management posits that knowledge of one’s mortality can create overwhelming terror. However, cultural worldviews are one mechanism humans use to protect against this terror. I argue that gender beliefs are a powerful worldview US society, and that being primed with an individual who does not adhere to our expectations will create discomfort, especially if one is reminded of their mortality. Therefore, when people are primed to think of their own death and exposed to a woman who violates gender norms, they should be more likely to have hostile reactions to a victim of sexual assault. One hundred and forty participants were recruit ed from the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs and the University of Colorado, Denver. Participants were randomly assigned to be prime d with a control or death reminder. Next they were primed with one of three women, two of which violated gender norms. Participants were then asked to read a rape script and respond to a survey to assess their level of rape myth acceptance. A preliminary analysis of the results examined gender, MS, and woman prime in a 2 x 2 x 3 ANOVA. A significant effect for gender wa s found ( p = 0.04), indicating that men have higher levels of rape myth acceptance. The primary analysis of Right Wing Authoritarianism (RWA), MS, and woman prime was conducted with a hierarchical multiple regression. A significant effect for RWA was found ( p
