For existing objects, it's impossible to know how old they are.
For new objects, you can store a creation timestamp. Since this is very dependent on your actual needs, there is
probably no ready-to-use code, but the functionality is really simple (assuming you have an instance variable creationTime):

    super initialize.
    creationTime := DateAndTime now.

    ^DateAndTime now - creationTime
