I think its important for older folks (not saying I am ancient) to learn about the culture of the moment. I also think its important for younger folks to check out older things and enjoy the source code for what inspires them today.
Old music for example whether it be in church or in a symphony hall has a lot of complexity and poetry. Modern music really has the influence of the ancient with the message of the moment.
The same goes for film, literature, art and dance. If we spent more time connecting the ancient with the modern generations of people can gain further understanding of one another and expand their knowledge base.
The old and the young live in the same space, perhaps we should start living as community instead of two groups who don’t want to make the effort to understand each other.
