The phrase ‘ages of ages’ is used not only for expressing the eternity, but also the way by which the time can be qualitatively determined in order to avoid its fragmentation in the daily life of mortal beings.
The quality that makes an age to be an age should be a viewed in all those parts of the age, but in fact to see that quality requires an effort of overleaping the many folded manner by which the multitude of fragments of time that compose our existence appears to us.
Thus, the discovery of the unique quality of the age supposes to close the daily life over for being opened for a higher life and order of time.
Every natural closure of life, as the perpetual end of days, years, and lives themselves, will be felt as a further step to the new life. It is the hope that one age cannot oppress the man, since that age is also comprehended by other ages.
If the phrase ‘years of years’ is thought of a parallel to that of ‘ages of ages’, then we should take every natural closure of life with the same hope of being diminished. On this time, it is diminished by the series of closures that compose our life and, we vaguely know through the scientific accounts, it is the series of all the things that surround us.
The continuity of perpetual ends makes them parts of a possible play of labeling them according to some qualities gathered from the most salient features of the daily and fragmentized life. Happy, sad, spiritual years.
The most appropriate label, not more as a game, comes when the man approaches to a more intimate end. But even then, many past years still bears the lack of importance due to the fact that they were years comprehended by other years.
