Act Your Age! Revisited

By Shae Hadden


I came across a new take on the phrase "Act your age!" today.

that the entire universe is made up of the same matter, the same
particles that existed in the first flaring forth of space and time.

and time again. Essentially, each one of us is as old as our universe.
And according to recent calculations based on the Big Bang theory,
that’s about 13.7 billion years old. In other cosmological models, the
universe has an infinite age.

So if you’re thinking

These terms make intergenerational relationships sound like a disease. They even assign ‘causes’ in the form of reasons for the attraction—usually from financial and social

obvious: women over forty no longer consider themselves “over the hill”.

Whether the rest of the world is on board is a matter of personal
attitude. It’s not about trying to sex it up for some
