Subject: I think when talking about a person's maturity "age" and "time" have two different meanings
In reply to: Comicality 's message, "I think the halflife situation is mostly about knowledge versus experience...." on Tue February 26, 2008 19:10:21

I agree with Com. He said it himself "in order to gain knowledge, one must lose innocence," and I see it like that too. Working in retail, I get to interact with large amount of customers, people from all walks of life - rich, poor, different cultures, and ages. I've seen so many adults that I feel are like little 7 year-olds in the body of a big boy by the way they act and behave. And then there are 13 year-olds who carry themselves like 40 year-olds by the way they handle themselves.

It brings me to my point, I think that when dealing with the mind, it's not so much the 'age' of the mind, but the experiences that mind had during the time it has been given. A lot of stuff can happen to a single person during the course of a year that can completely change the way they behave, think, and feel and during the same time, another person might've lived a rather simple year without much incident. What if the first was 14 and the latter was 25, who learned more?
