What now?

Interesting question. On a personal level I've discovered that I've reached a point in my life where my interests have become self sustaining. Not financially self sustaining yet, but psychologically self sustaining in that I've worked so hard at building up areas of life that I'm concerned with that I really can't change. The neural flexibility is going and I've got to deal now with what I've already established in order to direct my life.

A fascinating question, but with a dimension you haven't (explicitly) considered in this post: At what age do we stop accumulating new experiences, new "things" to add to our neural toybox, and just try to hold on to what we have?

Even more chilling: At what age can we no longer even hold on to what we have, but simply seek to slow down the inevitable erosion? (I am not simply referring to memory loss.)
