  1. There are a number of gravitational forces that are on a par with self-preservation (some of them have already been mentioned by other commentators): curiosity, pleasure, power, procreation, vanity, self-realization, dignity, the desire not to depend on either being or non-being, the passion for struggle, the desire for peace, and finally the desire to annoy everyone. For more information about these gravitational forces, see here.

  2. Perhaps the fact that a person does not die makes him live.

    If we proceed from this point of view, any person lives only because he did not die either today, yesterday, or the day before yesterday.

    Death did not overtake him, so he lives and, perhaps, death, or rather the inevitability of its arrival, and makes people live.
