[ASC-list] Why do we die, and who's researching this?

Hi all

I'm wondering if anyone could help me with some research I'm doing into why
and how we die? Morbid, yes, but also fascinating stuff.

I'm interested in current thinking on why we die (instead of living
forever), and suggestions for researchers to interview. I'm also looking for
researchers/experts who can talk about the actual physiological mechanisms
of death ... what's happening at the physiological level when we experience
the event of death?

I'm happy to interview anyone anywhere in the world so they don't have to be
based in Australia.

Thanks in anticipation,
