Chinese wisdom knows no bounds, their worldview differs from that of other inhabitants of our planet. At the same time, the sayings of ancient Chinese sages are accepted as truth worldwide.

What did the Ancient Chinese know that still compels us to turn to the sayings of these sages today?

It’s simple. In Ancient China, wisdom was the most important virtue of society alongside magnanimity and courage. The sage was a symbol of correctness and truthfulness, of inner peace and equilibrium. Moreover, Chinese sages were quite successful psychologists. With their sayings, they could change the fate and life of a person, engaging them in the “high.”

Today, modern Chinese honor the memory of their ancestors but live by the laws of modernity. However, some Chinese followers of Qin Shi Huangdi devise various ways to investigate a person’s real age.

For instance, the renowned Chinese thinker of the 20th century, Wen Mui, proposed the following method for assessing people’s real age. In a picture, he depicted a marsh with two herons standing in it. And he wrote the following (literally): “Your age will be better shown by how you were as a child, but forgot your childhood. So remember it if you are still young; find the child in the marsh.”

Translated into modern terms, the riddle of this puzzle is as follows: There is a child in this picture, but only those who are not too old will find it.

Of course, it’s not about physical age but spiritual age. So, can you find the child in the picture?
