The Point Of Death Is Purely Biological?

I think death is an evolved trait that allows limited resources to be allocated to the youngest, newest generations. This way, reproduction is encouraged in order to propagate the species, and genetic diversity can increase. As diversity increases, the chances the species will survive unforeseen cataclysms increases.

Older people wither away and die to make room for the younger generation. But I think this process is outdated. I believe our technology has enabled us to provide enough resources for everybody. I think if nobody ever died, we'd still find the means to support the global society.

If death had a spiritual motivation as well, for instance in that it would allow someone to reach a higher state of awareness, then surely that purpose would make itself known if ever death is conquered.
