As a 76 year old, It seems to me that it is a time to become more spiritual.  Reading energizes your brain  and there are so many spiritual books to read that there isn't enough time in ones day to contemplate the meaning of all these concepts.

I agree.   Love learning new things.  Wish I would have had this attitude back in high school.  Just was in a hurry to graduate.  One of my biggest regrets in life.

Spot on Larry. I've been explaining it the same way for many years. It's basically MATH along with human gift of perception. Once explained, nearly everyone understands the concept.

Being retired, most of my friends agree that they don't know how they ever found time to work.  What we fail to remember is that whatever we are doing now, weather it is physical or mental, it takes longer.  Thats why time flys so fast.  I am not capable of doing anything as quickly as I did 50 or 60 years ago. I can't walk as fast, I don't drive as fast, I don't dress as fast, I don't run up stairs two at a time any more, my mind is in slow motion I don't comprehend what has been said and it takes longer to generate a response.  For me success arrived when I accepted the fact that I was not capable of competing with the young. Now I just  stand aside and let them run.
