The virtual world carried around as a 3D animation and memories is clear when it becomes a parody in English old people. In Post Industrial England this has deteriorated into a numbers game of lottery, bingo and abstract numberical games in the newspaper for commuters. What levered off humans in the jungle from other mammals and animals i.e. the ability to imagine future situations e.g. fighting off rival group of chimanzees now enables old people to live now in the past. Imaginary situations linger in the minds of old people mainly from early adult survival and procreative years. The paradox of old people having the ability to be cheerful and live off memories confounds their offspring and followers. When the memories become jaded there are long pauses from people who really should be more lucid and sharing experiences. Perhaps they are hiding from the young. The tragedy of old age is acted out in care homes throughout England but some lucky ones live in luxury in the country. Some have gone to Spain and France, some risking running out of money. Some love The English Coast even though nothing happens there.
The most geriatric of towns in England are:-
Minehead, Shrewsbury, Ludlow, Bridgnorth, Much Wenlock, Torquay, Barrow in Furness, Skegness, Ingoldmells, Cromer, Great Yarmouth, Lowestoft, Clacton on sea, Broadstairs, Hastings, Weston super mare, Eastbourne, Worthing, Bognor Reigis, Wooler, Scarborough, Bournemouth and Ironbridge. Most towns and city districts have clusters of old people packed in to boring dwelling units monitored by mainly foreign nurses. Lincolshire and Shropshire are typical counties where rural villages have an überzahl of elderly. Try Marks and Spencers in Newark on a week day. Both young and old hang out in shops for something to do.
This is a long way off aspiring city dweller workers (the burgeoning middle classes) spending summer evenings and the weekends looking for the rural idyll on a tandem.
Such is the cycle of life in England.
