These biological clocks can be quite as accurate as our mechanical clocks. How do we know that animals have clocks? How do we know that the clocks keep such accurate time?

This approach is consonant with a developmental-field theory of hum~ aging. 6 Developmental-field theory proposes, among other things, that individuals create very particularized "careers" of maturation and aging, and generally are 24 more effective if they have achieved versatile frameworks that can support diverse and contradictory experiential trends. In both clinical practice and research we have encountered a number of old people who steadfastly refrain from one modality or the other. Some appear reconciled to a future that is irrelevant to their own hopes and fears.
