W.O.W.~childhood can be over at 7 or 8

As soon as one knows one is going to die, childhood is over….
So one can be grown up at seven.
Then, I believe most human beings forget what they have understood,
recover another sort of childhood that can last all their lives.
It is not a true childhood but a kind of forgetting.
Desires and anxieties are there,
preventing you from having access to the essential truth.
