Unfortunately there is no true correlation between age and wisdom. The correlation truly lies between experience and wisdom. Even then, it is merely a
correlation and not a causation. Age does not cause wisdom to develop. Experience does not cause wisdom to develop.
What age does cause amounts to set channels of the brain being utilized. It allows for set patterns to run their course. If one is willfully ignorant,
divisive, and hateful over a longer period of time it becomes an ingrained social pattern carved within within their brains. All that natural aging
tells me about a person is that they have a significant amount of experience, and that they are very /something/ (whether that something be happy,
sad, argumentative, wise, intelligent, spiteful, open, warm, caring, hopeful, pessimistic, optimistic ad infinitum...depends on how they lived their
life and what patterns within their life were the most repeated).
That's all age tells me...experience and set subconscious programming (again, not necessarily a negative thing.)
