I'm not trying to knock on the elderly here, but the older you get, the less in touch with the ever-changing world you become.
Ahhh, the voice of youth, always willing to share all their experience with those older than themselves! *__-
As youth, you have little Perspective (no fault of your own), as one matures, one's Perspective grows.
Look at it like this;
When you are living on the street, you are right in the middle of all the street level turmoil, robberies, beatings, shopping, all the drama and
All that stuff is all you can see, nose to nose!
Now, if you take an elevator up about 5 floors, in that building, and look out the window, you still see much of the drama, but you also see the peace
and tranquility of the world on the 5th floor.
You are less needing to involve yourself in every petty squabble ('petty' as seen from this greater Perspective).
Now go up to the 100th floor.
You can barely see the petty crap going on constantly on the street, but you know that it's there, it is always there!
Sometimes you have to walk through it.
But the world, from your higher Perspective, now is a beautiful harmony, rather than a mass of chaos from that tiny Perspective of the 'street',
you're now able to see past and future from there, a greater understanding of Reality...
Knowledge = experience!
Children have none!
Life BEGINS at 40!
Before that is all 'entrance ramp' if done right! *__-
No one under 90 can ever run for public office!
