  1. Why unpleasant?

    The problem is a negative attitude to the given.

    It is a given that there was no specific person, and there was an Eternity before his birth. A particular Person was born, lived, or died. On the infinite straight line of Eternity, the birth of a person is the point “A”, and death is the point “B. The life of a person on the infinite straight line of Eternity is the segment”AB”.

    Death for a huge number of people on Earth was not and is not a nuisance: for Hindus, Buddhists, Muslims.

    It turns out that you are asking: what is the meaning of your personal negative attitude to your point “B”?

    From the point of view of physiology, the answer is probably this: in your hormones. Physiologically, your experiences are your hormones.

  2. There is no meaning in this phrase, since death is not a form of being, but a form of non-being. We do not exist dead, we experience someone else's death, being alive and continuing to project the situation on ourselves, with all the ensuing consequences – including the search for meaning, and so on. The dead don't seek meaning, the dead don't find it unpleasant. All this applies to the living, and the meaning also applies to the thinking living.�

    Perhaps the question you wanted to ask is: what is the meaning of having the knowledge of death included in our existence? Philosophy gives different answers, in particular, this: “The experience of the death of loved ones, projected on my own existence as its last possibility-the possibility of ending this existence-makes me think about the possibilities that precede this last possibility, about those possibilities that I have not yet seen, understood, chosen, replaced by the possibilities of other people.”
