If so, then it must have evolved in species against species competition 
against something. What?

I wonder whether life is a complex system of many variable, each one of 
which has an undesireable side effect. These can keep the "pin on its 
point" only for so long before it falls over. If you can find an 
immortal fish, then this theory must be disproved, at least as far as 
fishes go. Then maybe we could see why the fish is immortal and what 
genetic modifications we can make to existing people to give their 
systems the same properties.
