The average person spends most of his or her life being guided by mental and behavioral patterns based on his or her animal or biological nature.
“Animal Man” wants to: 1) reproduce and continue the race; 2) capture as much food and material resources as possible; 3) take a high, dominant position in the pack (or herd).
These patterns are triggered during puberty and weaken as the body ages physiologically.
“Before “and” after “the so-called” active period of human life “(the realization of their” animal ” program), that is, in childhood and old age, mental and behavioral stereotypes of a person have not physiological, but intellectual and transcendental sources.
Therefore, the behavior and thinking of children and the elderly have a lot in common. For example, the desire to know the world (intellectual) or search for general abstract truths (transcendental).
No. The most noticeable difference is that old people are very conservative and think in stereotypes acquired over the years, so it is difficult for them to learn something new. Children, on the contrary, get to know the world around them and constantly acquire new knowledge, skills and abilities. Why are old people and children often compared!? Yes, simply because the former have lost, and the latter have not yet gained much that mature people have. So they seem to be similar in behavior or thinking..
