Apparently as you get older you turn into your gender respective parent. But surely they are themselves in the process of turning in to their gender respective parent. So who are we actually turning in to?
This leads me nicely (almost too nicely) to the picture opposite. I am meant to be turning into my mother, who in turn is turning in to hers, who therefore must be turning into her mother (the lady pictured is not my Great Grandmother Jancy, I apologise for stealing her image if she is your Great Gran).
So is this metaphorsis, or as some people put it "the change", actually evolution in reverse? Hmm, if throughout our life we are reverting to characteristics of the former generation it would seem to me that we could, possibly, on the verge of might be.
