Moshe at 120

The Torah writes about Moshe being at age 120 just as he was at 80. I always thought that was a positive idea regarding Moshe's strength and clarity of mind. What about a possibility that being at age 120 just like at 80 indicates that Moshe hadn't changed. His attitudes and perspectives were still those of the generation that left Egypt. This explains why God wouldn't let him enter that land - the nation had made a necessary shift and Moshe hadn't.

Thoughts?

nice thought, but doesn't fit the text. The text tells us in what way he was still going strong the day he died and it tells us why he wasn't allowed to enter the land.
