We are a worldwide social network of freethinkers, atheists, agnostics and secular humanists.

Who doesn't want to be younger but with the same wisdom they've acquired ?

When little lines start to set in next to your eyes or you'r getting laugh lines, do you wish your skin was still smooth, that  nothing sagged,  no shadow under your eyes, you're not balding and your hair are not getting thinner ?  

Is this a general wishful thinking: to be young (and having more years ahead ?) to look young, wishful thinking dictated by, maybe, our society's strange set of values ? When you're getting akes and pains, do you wish your body wouldn't remind you of your biological clock ? and wishing you could keep the experiences, the knowledge, well the same mind set you have acquired over the years ?  Is it an unconscious desire for eternal life ???

I would believe that the the "looking young" part and maybe feeling "more attractive" for a lot of people who are body conscious (some are more than others) is pretty much general in our society as opposed to eastern civilizations or maybe past eras...  But, maybe on the other hand, this is some kind of what could be called an "urban legend" solidified by all those movies, shows, ads showing young people, happy ,so often looking anorexic, beautiful young women, or beautiful young muscled men with the beard shadow...

Often, I wonder if I am one who doesn't want to look old and if this is only vanity from my part...

And what do you think of this phenomenon ?

Wow, How long were you in the hospital?

Life is built up through experience, we take moments that strike us as amazing and relish them but most of it is simply struggling to get to the next day without too much pain. Pain of our bodies, pain of what we see in the media, pain of our children, pain as children, pain of animals, pain of what others to one another or to us. At the end of the day we give a sigh of relief that this day was pretty damn good, that a child giggled, that your pet has a content look, that nothing was better than that first sip of coffee, these are things we reflect on at the end of the day. 

Would I EVER want to experience those days again, no as I have kept those moments close to my heart. My face, body are slowly showing age which is quite acceptable to me, and I do not want my brain of now to be in the more youthful body, if that were the case I would be absolutely dangerous if not lethal lol.  What if's are just for me but then again I am not one to look back only forward. That's just me though.

Saying this I certainly will color my hair till the cows sing, exercise and wear attractive clothes. I will age as gracefully as possible without looking silly hopefully. I am 57 btw.
