Anyone old enough to remember the 60's TV show Ben Casey? The beginning started out with the 5 symbols for man, woman, birth, death, and infinity. Very dramatic, but true for a medical show.

I do remember another popular show from the 60's (I think it was 60s), the Twilight Zone. While I was watching it, it felt very queer to know even the children actors displayed are probably now all dead.

Infinity is simply the bend in the curve.

Twilight zone was the 60's, but the kids used would be in the 50's not dead due to old age anyway. You get to be my age and watch some of your old shows, and you do end up saying, They are all passed away now. One Twilight zone that was copied, was a Steven Spielberg movie taken right from a Twilight Zone episode. He copied it to make Poltergiest. There was another show that was a twilight Zone kind of show, called 'One Step Beyond".

It's truly an intriguing adventure, isn't it?
Aging.
Looking back at your life, with some persepctive.
The various stages and chapters.
Beginning to see them, bare wtiness, even as they/you unfold before you.
It's kinda awesome.
