If you believe in reincarnation, you might even say that people who lose abilities as they get older are getting a head start on their next lives. We have to shed our old lives before we come back so we can start fresh again in the circle of life. It wouldn't do to remember our old lives because our brains would get full and we'd never end up learning anything new. Some folks wait to shed their old life after they pass away but some people who begin to lose abilities before passing away have less work to do to prepare to come back. And with less work to do maybe those folks get to come back to a new life sooner. So things like a second childhood may be a good thing. And acting younger as we get older isn't just nasty.
It's all poppycock, of course, because we all know growing older is a sad thing to be avoided at all costs.
