Hello Fellow Senior Citizens
By Paul Chong (19 January 2020)
Congratulations for having attained life’s status of septuagenarian & octogenarian & even going on to the category of nonagenarian. With the advancement of modern medical technology we could be living beyond all ages as centenarian.
Growing old (must be accompanied by growing up) is a privilege which few people have. Remember too that age is but a figure for your GP to worry about, but for us to be living it up & staying “Younger Than Springtime”. Or as Dean Martin would sing “Stay as young as you are”.
If you are just in the sixties, then you are still young . . . with the world ahead of you.
This is the most exciting era to be living in when all impossibilities become realities. We just learn that China has built an “artificial sun” (named HL-2M Tokamak) fuelled by hydrogen & deuterium gases through controlled nuclear fusion, which clean energy would be seven times that of the natural sun. The artificial sun is capable of generating clean energy up to the top temperature of 100 million degrees Celsius compared to that of our natural sun with a core temperature of only 15 million Celsius.
THINK what this could mean for China . . . taking China to the top of the world by becoming the world’s greatest supplier of clean energy . . . clean & green . . . no more pollution. This technical breakthrough is exactly what we all need. China will commission this device in 2020, a new dawn for mankind.
With the rapid advancement of modern technology & medical science & barring accidents we can possibly & hopefully live to a ripe old age. In Biblical times quite a number of God fearing men lived beyond century of years. Bible does predict longevity of life in the future. … the details are mentioned in Isaiah65:17-25 For example: Adam lived 930 years (Genesis 5:5); Noah lived 950.
Apart from the Bible, Quran 29:14 states that Noah had been living among the people who he was sent to for 950 years when the flood started. And, indeed, [in times long past] We sent forth Noah unto his people, and he dwelt among them a thousand years bar fifty; and then the floods overwhelmed them while they were still lost in evildoing.
Biblically, evil destroyed the world & evil will do likewise as we live dangerously on. Live a life that’s fit & clean & God will say it’s good.
It’s all also a question of attitude more than aptitude that scales the altitude.
With God’s Grace & Mercy, we shall prevail.
