On a really side note, here’s an article I found that proves what I theorized back in Sophomore year in Ms. Playstead’s Current Life Class PowerPoint on Adolescence. http://www.time.com/time/health/article/0,8599,1919663,00.html?xid=rss-topstories
Essentially, what it says is that because the Teen brain is subject to unique and possibly more stress than their adult counterparts, the Teen brain might be more advanced and gradually diminishes in intellect as age wears on. “Unique” in this case is reckless behavior that adults would not dream of doing. I theorized this in my power point as being any obsession; because the teen brain is more prone to detail, to objectivity, to Gestalt points of view. We see everything, so that we may miss nothing. We do everything, so that we may be everything. We are reckless, so that we are more mature. The young are smarter than the old, plain and simple. Now, on that note, here’s something that relates to that very last line.
I love this. He says that the reason that everything sucks is because people have put into their minds that, Young is Good. He explains that Young is inexperience, Young is imbecility, so People have grown accustomed into thinking that, they want to be Stupid. Here’s the flip-side: If the Old wish to be Young, and the Young wish to be Old, then the Old wish to be Stupid, while the Young wish to be Wise. GoodShit.
The big question. “At what point do I cease to be the optimistic Young, and become the Old that stagnates in the presence of Fate?”
