If you are young, live like young. If you are old, live like young.

Once we have developed a character, we may develop
our unique identity surrounded by the culture where we live.
Our character and identity navigate in time-space. within
our past, future and present shrouded by our
way and style of life.
Time and space takes us from childhood through youth
to adult and old age. In each one of these stages of our life
we may adopt a different character and identity relative
to our age point.
A child does not has sufficient history and depends
on the experience of others. On the other hand, adolescents
have some history, but they have the greatest of gift;
free will and freedom. The rebelliousness of the young is
often due to the difficulty in balancing a minimal past that
has been mostly controlled by others, with an inconceivable
future in front of them full of endless open possibilities.
Childs talk about home, youngest about friends,
adults on present and future.
Older about home, friends, pets and all the time
on the subject matter of their past.
