Having watched The Curious Case of Benjamin Button last night, I find myself thinking about the way the main character aged. If you aren't familiar with it, I'll tell you that it's about a boy who is born old. Like Chronos in the Incarnations of Immortality series, he goes through his life gaining experience and maturity, but physically de-aging. He gets his infirmity out of the way as a young child, progressing from a wheelchair to crutches to a cane and so on... but he watches everyone around him grow old, suffer, and die.
The movie is very sad, but it got me thinking about the transience of everything we have... and whether I would choose to age from old to young or from young to old... What about you?
