I don't think Mitra meant that in the radical way that JM and JH assert
it. In their view there is no person - much less the same person from
moment to moment. Mitra's statement just means that when one has a
learned a lot and had a lot of experiences he may be as different from
who he was as child as he is from another person.

the older you got, the more experience you had, and more of it was bad.
