You age from the inside-out

Not from the outside-in, I say this because there are many people who spend large amounts of money on anti-aging creams, lotions etc to rub on the outside thinking it will slow down the ageing process.

The changes you see on the outside are all a result of changes occurring on the inside. Place a fresh apple on a kitchen table and leave it, watch it age as the days go by. If you were able to suspend the decay on the inside that apple would look as fresh as the first day one year later. If you were able to suspend in yourself the ageing process which in reality is a nice way of saying the decay or death process you would not age one day henceforth. There is a saying that all humans die of ignorance and it is absolutely true, it is the lack of the knowledge to prevent this internal deterioration which is the ignorance humans die of, so yes we all die of ignorance.

Time, dissipation, toxin build-up and degeneration are all factors.

Time: By time chronological time is not meant, the number of times you have been around the Sun is not a factor. The time that is important is biological time or the rate of cellular division. Some people are young for there age, some are old for their age and others look more or less their age.

Dissipation: By dissipation is simply meant the loss of the life-force and with its loss the subsequent decline.

Toxin build-up: A result of environment, diet and the body's reduced ability to process and expel toxins from the system as we age. An older person cannot recover from a night out drinking as fast as a younger person for example.

Degeneration: as your cells divide they make less perfect replicas of themselves resulting in accumulative errors, also the damage to our dna by free radicals and Solar/cosmic radiation. Was there a time when humans lived longer, if such a time did exist it was probably due to a lower background radiation level.

The oldest complete epic we have is the Sumerian epic of Gilgamesh which is about a kings quest for renewed youth so we can say for as long as humans have been writing they have been obsessed with finding a cure to the ageing process.

The old approach was Alchemy and various yogic/meditative techniques. The modern approach is supplements, diet, creams, drugs and exercise oh not forgetting surgery

Department of entropy, all systems are in a continual state of decay.

Staving off the process is like bailing a sinking lifeboat.

The most effective are staying hydrated. Toxins can only be passed out if theres sufficient water for cells to process them into the waste stream and out the body.

If always dehydrated, the body stores deposits up more, resulting in… more deposits.

Exercise, even a walk the dog routine keeps the system better able to shed the bad stuff.

Diet, eating foods that are less processed. The more processed foods are, the more additives, the more toxic and less nutrient value they have.

Lastly, be nice.

Never forget your lymphatic system. It mechanism to move waste along and requires using your muscle to "Squeeze" the wast products along (exercise).

Youre right and wrong. The outside is exposed to decades and decades of wind, sun, rain, cold and enviromental situations (workplaces etc).

Inside, the organs deteriorate, the bone cartilage shrinks between themselves, and the entire endocrine system begins to secrete more and less and in all instances due to age of the body system(s) involved with the change.

That happens over time. Both. Simultaneously, but at different rates based on the lifestyle over the lifetime of the individual and genetic disposition within families. Both.

Both. Insides, and outsides.

So does the Universe. As above, so below. Just a little truth to light your way.
