Up to 120!

Known Jewish wish - up to 120! It has become customary good form, to wish it for my birthday. But as to whether it is age? After all, in this day and age are much less people suffering from severe illnesses - both physical and mental. Do we want a person to suffer and be the weak for years to come?

Of course not. 120 - it's not the years, and fixes (word Shanah (a year) alludes to the Shinui (Change)). It is 120 patches (125) are achievable with terrestrial life. Therefore, we wish people were awarded the full correction (and thus the path of liberation from suffering) in the current incarnation. And how many years it will take a physical question .. tenth.
