In a book review published in the Christian Science Monitor, physicist Michio Kaku is interviewed about what he sees coming in the next century. He makes interesting observations and predictions to consider based upon working prototypes in place today.
The quote that caught my attention, though, was his comment about longevity. He said, “Aging is the buildup of error, error in our genes.”
“Aging is the buildup of error…” Whoa…I liked that. It was easy to go metaphysical places with that explanation.
Christian Science explains that man is created in the image of God. God is eternal. God’s image is eternal. Life is eternal. Man, as God’s image does not age. There is no “error in our genes.” Any “error” is mortal ignorance of what is spiritually true in the first place.
So, what is aging, except a misunderstanding of what constitutes eternal life? It’s error! Aging is error—a mistaken belief of what constitutes life. It is a material concept of life that is flawed and destined to fall apart. A realization of spiritual life neutralizes it and demonstrates more of eternal life, just like Jesus Christ did.
So, there you have it. A cure for aging. Don’t let error about life buildup in your thought over time! It may take some practice… 🙂
“Life is eternal. We should find this out, and begin the demonstration thereof. Life and goodness are immortal. Let us then shape our views of existence into loveliness, freshness, and continuity, rather than into age and blight.” Mary Baker Eddy
