Some people literally never grow up? If you have children or are around them in their world for part of the day then go out on the highways or in public venues you will soon find out. That doesn’t mean that the grownups are not more experienced or smart! Whatever that means in itself. But a lot of minds are made up as to the outlook on life at an early age. Some say that they are little carbon copies of their parents given the situations that they are confronted with? Perhaps? But then at a certain point in life one realizes that they are sitting back in their old seat in third grade? You think you know the rules and you see one of the others push against them but then you see someone else that you like. But she doesn’t experience the same moral dilemma of push or be pushed. The only problem is that the teacher is no longer there in those latter portions of later life to lay down the law. You are your own teacher. Or on the other hand, that old tired teacher has long ago left you completely on your own. That is moral relativity. The trouble with any sort of relativity, theoretical or otherwise, is it doesn’t do a thing about mitigating a final judgement? And one thing is certain. For all the finagling of earthly imagination and scientific application the same end always seems to await. That ultimate conclusion, but then all those transitions in-between experienced at different points in your life as well. The many types of you that have long been left behind and totally forgotten. The strange characters in old images that resemble you but that is where the similarity seems to end in the ‘older and wiser category’. Supposedly? So maybe one might conclude that if they are lucky enough to have some offspring you have an unexpected inadvertent teacher by virtue of some raw unvarnished example in those familiar personalities of the little lives that they have once again initiated for you? Just a thought?
