How do we split generations, and what does that splitting produce on a societal level?

How is it that we can sort people into generations that are supposedly distinct from one another, when population growth is continuous? And how do you think this practice contributes to the perceived roles of individual generations in the course of history?

    Mar 23 2011: well, it seems like here (SW AZ) there are several communities or even entire towns dedicated to the elderly. i think a lot of it stims from social fears, some of it is pratical for those in the community to help in eachother unique needs( like slower speed limits just for that town) but then look at "college towns" and "ghettos". i think we just do this to ourselvels.
