How can anyone be oblivious to their own mortality?

In fifteen years I’ll be 70. While 70 isn’t THAT old, it’s pretty far from young. And while fifteen years isn’t short, it isn’t that long. 

Ironic, tho, that age and experience is a prerequisite for being able to see temporal distances. Like skiing in a dense fog – by the time you see the tree, it’s too late.
