Three Experimental Thoughts. Of Maturity. Of Adulthood.

  1. Children often wish to be adults in hopes of gaining in adulthood some benefit that is in childhood withheld from them. Now, imagine a child who has been taught to long for adulthood because being an adult is an actualization of a fundamental purpose, and who consequently hopes to gain not a benefit but a responsibility, a burden that uplifts only those who bear it and oppresses those who set it down.
  2. A longing for maturity is an essential element of maturity itself.
  3. The cost and cause of human actualization: that one should desire one’s highest end and not presume to have it.
