I came across a new take on the phrase "Act your age!" today.
that the entire universe is made up of the same matter, the same
particles that existed in the first flaring forth of space and time.
And that these same particles are recycled into different forms time
and time again. Essentially, each one of us is as old as our universe.
And according to recent calculations based on the Big Bang theory,
that’s about 13.7 billion years old. In other cosmological models, the
universe has an infinite age.
So if you’re thinking of making a
difference in the world–whether by standing up to protect the
environment, lobbying for universal healthcare, volunteering with a
youth literacy program, or working to provide children in
underdeveloped nations with access to learning–remember that you are
doing it with the authority of a full-fledged billion year old.
Talk about ageless…
