According to science correspondent Sarah Knapton, the brains of the elderly are slow because we know so much. Just like computers, our heads get so full of information, that it takes longer to access it. Knapton quotes Dr. Michael Ramscar who says, “The human brain works slower in old age, but only because we have stored more information over time."
God knew that all along.
They will still bear fruit in old age; they will stay fresh and green. (Psalm 92:14, NIV)
Prayer-Lord, help us see old age as an adventure in futuristic living with you! Amen.
