Deathism is the preconceived notion that death is inevitable and inescapable, actually a good thing, and it should be accepted without fear. The term is beginning to gain usage in circles where it is believed that thanks to ever-accelerating scientific progress aging can and indeed should be combated. Deathists tend to be opposed to such an outlook and advocate the "preservation of the natural order of things", and therefore often discourage, or voice their disapproval of anti-aging scientific endeavors.
John is an avowed advocate of deathism, or a "deathist". He believes death is absolute and thinks removing aging from humans would do more harm than good.
