Chronumerology

A couple of years ago Wangston proposed taking the prime factors of your age and meditating on those years of your life on your birthday. (And being excited when you have a prime birthday - it's like starting over!).

A couple of variations on that came up recently. First, if you have repeated prime factors, you could combine them to have a more interesting age to recall (there's only so much time you can spend contemplating age 2). For example, 28 -> 2 * 2 * 7, so you'd take 4 and 7 instead.

The mighty THIGH suggested taking a sum of fibonacci numbers. 38 would be 34 + 3 + 1. Unfortunately, you never have two adjacent numbers from the series in any sum.

Finally, what if you were to do binary operations between two ages - say, a married couple, or two good friends - over the course of their lives? I don't think there's any meaning here, but it makes pretty pictures...
