Ages of Aeon and Trevor? : LUSENET : Aeon Flux : One Thread

I don't think this is ever referred to in the show, but has anybody ever wondered how old Aeon and Trevor are? I always got the impression that Trevor was somewhat older than Aeon, but I'm not exactly sure where I got this from. Any thoughts?

The Herodotus File claims that Aeon is about 28 while Trevor is approximately 30. However, if Chung's asexual reproduction explanation is true, then the Aeon Flux entity could have existed for hundreds of years, or longer...

Trevor is certainly older than Aeon - probably in his mid thirties. Note that in the original season Trevor wound up with a wife and child - a sign of maturity, I'm sure.

The idea of Aeon being a mother is a little bit harder to swallow. Apparently Trevor doesn't have a problem with it - remember when he saw the photo of the baby in Chronophasia he asked if it was Aeon's...

Because of their nature, both have to be ageless. Aeon needs to reinvent herself so many times that this leads us to age in terms of experiences.(Maybe she was too old mentally losing her inner strengh, remenber "A last time for everything"). As for our beloved Trevor, science has kept him in his most egocentric body age, his link to experimental dna is a key to a healthy being. But like Aeon, his lifestyle will eventually take a stand later on.

That's a really interesting theory... they both do certainly have a timeless feel to their personas. I could believe that Aeon is in her forties, if I was told that. Ultimately, I don't think age is important in these stories. I think in a lot of human situations, we judge senority by relative age, but in a case such as this where we aren't (usually) told the ages of the characters, we let the stories tell us who is dominant. Sometimes Aeon comes off as being as mature as a teenager, and at other times, she is the mother figure, and far more dominant over Trevor, who can often appear very child-like.

What explanation by Chung re:asexual reproduction?

-- Barb e (, December 03, 2000.

Here's what Peter said in an early interview:

"The idea that I was really going to pursue if I were really to try to explain it is that she was somebody that was able to reproduce asexually...which meant that she's able to split and become parallel selves. But I didn't really pursue that but that would have been my position. There aren't a whole lot of them...during the lapses between episodes when you don't see it's like 'sysparis' reproduction. Cell splitting. I was going to do a think where part of the body gets cut if you cut off her arm she'd grow a new arm and the arm would grow a new body."

Although, I suspect he had abandoned this idea by the third season.

Ha. Metaphysical transcendental meditation. This show was ahead of it's time, and as someone once said maybe it will never see it's time.
