Free from the limitations of age

Russ Gerber talks with David C. Driver of Seattle, Washington.

Russ Gerber: David, when the subject of aging came up the other day, you used the term age-lessness. What did you mean by that?

David Driver: Well, I meant that not only the upper years of human experience but also the younger years of human experience need to be freed from limitation. The human concept of life is that it is a cycle, starting from birth and going upward to a point of maturity and then having a downward slide after that. And people generally feel that the downward slide is something we want to correct. But if they grow from more or less helplessness up to a state of maturity, then there are limitations connected with youth as well. There's statement that Mary Baker Eddy, who discovered Christian Science, makes in her major work, Science and Health, that really hints at what I'm saying: "The measurement of life by solar years robs youth and gives ugliness to age" (p. 246).
