13.You’ll always be a child, no matter how old you get.
You’ll always be a child, no matter how old you get. Roughly seven to ten years of age. For that’s how old the vast majority of your physical being is at any given moment. At least once you first achieve that age range after birth. So now you know why most everyone acts so childishly– at least sometimes.
The flip side of this is that your ‘mold’ or ‘pattern’ or ‘blueprint’ on which your physical self is based can (in theory) be traced back in a completely unbroken lineage as far into the past as the beginning of life on Earth billions of years ago– and maybe beyond that. But nothing lasts forever!
