"when we complain about life, not its particulars, but life itself, there's no basis for comparison."

The complaint is not about mortality, but about the absense of a good reason for having the knowledge of mortality without the means to immortality. The scientist would say that this knowledge goes with the territory of knowing; that it's more a side-effect than an indicator what we may be capable of. The mystic would say that immortality is possible, but that it isn't what you think it is.
