  • Generation: Generation  (from the  Latin   generāre , meaning "to beget"),  [1]  also known as  procreation  in  biological  sciences, is the act of producing  offspring . In a more general sense, it can also refer to the act of  creating  something inanimate such as  ideas ,  sound ,  electrical generation  using technology or  cryptographic   code generation . Generation Gap: The  generational gap  is  and was  a term popularized in Western countries during the 1960s referring to differences between people of a younger generation and their elders, especially between a child and their parent's generation. Although some generational differences have existed throughout history, because of more rapid cultural change during the modern era differences between the two generations increased in comparison to previous times, particularly with respect to such matters as musical tastes, fashion, culture and politics. This may have been magnified by the unprecedented size of the young generation during the 1960s, which gave it unprecedented power and willingness to rebel against societal norms.
