All living things in the world live and die, some of them are aware of it and some not, but all of them seek for living a long life or even keeping alive forever.

世上万千生物活过又死去,有的自觉,有的不自觉,但都最求着可笑的长生或永恒
Every living creature in the world lives and dies, knowingly, or unknowingly, ridiculously tries to pursue longevity or even immortality.


最求-->追求

could we translate 自覺into self-realization?

self-realization has a very specific meaning (个体的)自我实现

All creatures under the sun live and die, consciously or unconsciously. It is ridiculous of those who pursue an unrealistically-protracted or even eternal life.

Be sure to avoid paradox:  Any living thing doesn't die. But it will.
