BECOMING: BECOMING VS AGING PART TWO

In AGING there are two 'OCTAVES': one descending and the other ascending. AGING is a descending Octave that 'goes with the flow'of ordinary existence, and is called, by some, INVOLUTION(involuntary). You can call if for convenience 'THE FIRST STREAM OR RIVER OF LIFE" in which all of us find ourselves when we first become awake and attentive to life's demands and necessities as well as the imperatives, such as, reproduction of the species and survival... The other, the most difficult, is called EVOLUTION or 'BECOMING' where one goes against ordinary things in life to achieve an AIM, a GOAL, that many label 'immortlaity', which is only attainable within 'planetary' limits of humanity as they/it exists now. Very few humans have reached this 'status' and those that have are both 'mythical' and 'legendary' and you can supply your own list of them, and I shall not do so, because I do not know them personally as far as I can tell..... Yes, very few humans have reached this 'status' of 'immortality' and so many humans give up long before they start and settle back into comfortable fantasies and vain imaginings and the like, 'hypnotized by the glamor of this world and the culture in which they find themselves immersed....more on this aspect another time perhaps.... As one 'ages'-approaching death, the reality of mortality sometimes becomes apparent. Then people tend to strive for a few more years to extend themselves or accept the inevitable process. In this case, a 'REMEMBRANCE/RECOLLECTION' of one's past becomes necessary so a possible 'carry-over' may occur. Of this latter more will be discussed another time, possibly under a different topic...
