Think of the span of your life as a 24 hour day. For the sake of convenience, let’s take average life expectancy as 72 (the Bible talks about “three score years and ten”; in the UK the last 50 years have seen it climb from 70 to 80). That means that every three years means one more hour goes by on the clock.
- When you are 18, it is 6 a.m.
- When you are 24, it is 8 a.m.
- When you reach 30, it is 10 a.m.
- Noon is when you are 36.
- When you are 51, the clock has reached 5 p.m.
- At 60, it is 8 p.m.
What time is it according to your clock?
