Folks are getting old. 60 is the new 70 and not the other way around (as "scientists" expected).

Not in my experience. I’m 67, and I feel better than I did in my 20’s. Resting heart rate in the 50’s, blood pressure 110/60.


I just turned 70 and still feel like I'm in my 20s.  But mileage may vary.

    Rates of Change.  The calculus of aging in TM..

    *Some of what we can see in these lists is a /natural /aging-out
    of the Post-War Cohort, of the people who were early with
    Maharishi in the very early SRM movement,  the Walter Koch and
    Charlie Lutes generation of TM. *

    *Now what we are seeing in TM is an accelerating rate of attrition
    to aging-out of the Boomer I and Boomer II’s. Interestingly, the
    cusp time period where the Boomers I and Boomers II met was the
    time frame where TM took off in popular (college undergrad, grad
    student, professor-age) culture for a time.  A lot of the TM
    movement intake happened in those years 1968-76, over the cusp of
    the Boomers I and II. *

    *You can see this particular cusp in the age span of meditators in
    the Dome or at campus meetings of the TM community now.  The WWII
    generation is pretty much gone from the ranks of TM now.  The
    Post-War Cohort are pretty gone or geriatric now and the Boomers I
    are increasingly shuffling or gone on. Boomers II are increasingly
    ‘in diminish’. Time is short regardless. *

    *Post-War Cohort*

    Born: 1928-1945

    Coming of Age: 1946-1963

    Age in 2004: 59 to 76

    /For a long time the Baby Boomers were defined as those born
    between /*/1945/*/and /*/1964/*/. That would make the generation
    huge (71 million) and encompass people who were 20 years apart in
    age. It didn't compute to have those born in /*/1964/*/compared
    with those born in /*/1946/*/./
