Everything on the earth is cycling in occurrence, existence and disappearance. This is known as the life cycle; all creatures are cycling in birth, growth and death.

All creatures are growing day by day after birth. As time passes, our bodies and brains grow, and we achieve physical and psychological development. Then, we have become mature.

After the peak of maturity, physical growth and development start degenerating (declining) slightly due to nature. At this stage, our bodies can become sensitive and inflexible, and our brain will lose memory. The older the age, the more deteriorating our health and youthfulness. We cannot cover the physical deterioration (degeneration) for a long time.
