Death is the end of life. Transhumanists seek to challenge what is often phrased as an inevitability through advocating the research into emerging technologies.

Even with hypothetical technologies like mind uploading, hacking and backup destruction is still a possibility.

Philosophy

Technically speaking, the state of 'being dead' cannot be intrinsically bad because it is is experientially null.[1]

However, the process of dying can be intrinsically bad because of pain, suffering etc and is typically extrinsically bad too via loss of knowledge, suffering of loved ones and so forth.

The process of aging towards currently inevitable death intrinsically creates scenarios of frustrated preferences[2] whereby most individuals will never be able to achieve so many ambitions.
