1041. 'Into the generations of an age' means all unceasingly who are being created anew. This is clear from the meaning of 'generations of an age'. 'Generations' means descendants of those going before as their parents. 'An age' is that which continues unceasingly. Here the subject is those things that have been regenerated and therefore 'the generations of an age' is used to mean those people who are unceasingly being regenerated in this way, that is, who are being created anew. In the internal sense the meaning of everything is determined by the subject under discussion.
