unless the person decides to drop out earlier.
This cognition is about ”loss” which is huge part of believing that something is no longer.
As the body ages: The ‘’dreams’’ to accomplish to achieve they all vanish.
Old age, being in that State gives the person incredible feeling of LOSS.
Aging that time span is one continual loss…. the person is forced to give up things.. give away.. not being able to continue.. not allowed to have..things don’t work: the body breaks down.
The person reaching for something but it is no longer there..
The person’s life empties slowly and everything as once it was vanishes and the person now fills replace that void with memories of the past and illnesses.. because illnesses are ‘’having’’ something ”strong sensations” to hang onto to experience and that something regardless how bad is still better than not having anything, plus in that State there is a growing fear- dread of the yet to come: death-oblivion.
I have a sister in the nursing home and I been watching her ”ageing” -having dementia, she is only 2 years older than me but we live in a totally different Universe.. she is on old Human and I am on Infinite.
