ing of our destination nor appreciat-
ing the many phases of our journey.
Nonetheless, the stages of human
existence have been the topic of much analysis over the years. Here are
some insights from others who have weighed in on this topic.
e founder of sociology, Auguste Comte, claims that our lives Great Hair

ti c—as we learn to appreciate empirical causation. e father of
deistic existentialism, Soren Kierkegaard, agreed with Comte’s stages
but placed them in the opposite order, claiming that our lives culmi-
nate in a religious stage during which faith, not reason, dominates
the individual’s personal truth.
In the East, Hindus believe that our lives are divided into four
stages, each corresponding to what the spiritual self should be doing.
e rst stage, ashramus, is the preparatory time of the student. e
second stage corresponds to the married householder, during which
the man supports a family and maintains a responsible position in
his community. e third, retirement, occurs around 50 and is wit-
ness to the end of his worldly obligations, signaling the beginning
of his withdrawal from the world. Finally, in his last stage, sannyasi,
he leaves his home and dwells alone in the forest. He says little and
possesses only his loincloth, begging bowl, and water jar. His sole
attention is directed at properly preparing himself for his journey to
the Brahman or Universal Spirit.
Also in the East, Japanese folklore divides life into ve phases:
“At ten, an animal; at twenty, a lunatic; at thirty, a failure; at forty, a
fraud; at fty, a criminal.” Perhaps this is the reason why 60 (with
rare exception) is the mandatory retirement age in Japan!
Sigmund Freud wrote about ve distinct stages of human de-
velopment as well: the oral, anal, phallic, latent, and genital stages.
We reach the nal stage at 18 years old, after which nothing much
Shakespeare, for his part, envisioned eight stages, all de ned with

Diet and exercise are integral parts of the formula for a healthy life. ough few people may look forward to giving up certain foods in favor of more nutritious diets,
