We are born with no age and we die with no age. We are life itself, it is our true identity, and life has no age, it is, for eternity.
But since we want to have age, weeks and years to separate us from each other and ourselves, then we create age.
I chose number twenty-five, so in my mind we are born as twenty-five and twenty-five we die. I chose this number, because it seems everybody is twenty-five, or rather behave like twenty-five. But there are of course other ideas about age, hovering around the world, and indeed many.
