...sitting on a park bench staring into space? You are anti-aging if you assume that the individual on the park bench is there because he/she has nothing better to do, no place else to go. Of course, that may be the case. There are plenty of older people out there who have been marginalized from society before their time and who could benefit from increased activity and interaction. However, it is your assumption that this is necessarily the case that puts you into the anti-aging camp.
The alternative is to consider is that this individual is there by choice, enjoying the moment and attaining a level of spiritual transcendence to which we can only aspire. If you are willing to at least consider this as a possibility, you are pro-aging.
