For sure, starting a new domain and purchasing it for 5 years is not as good as having that domain already active for 5 years in any possible algo. I do have sites ranking well that I never really optimized but seem to have some legs due to age - not something I've tested out, but I see it now and then.

For instance, we've seen well established evidence in the past where high authority, well established sites have been penalized or completely removed from the index. Where all of their past goodwill was negated by one stupid move. And when these sorts of mistakes are corrected the historical data takes back over and drives the rankings back up to their norm. But to say years of goodwill is in any way an indicator that the engines assume unknown future events in rankings is a leap I'm not prepared to make. Especially given the complete lack of supporting evidence.

my music site redirected(302) for 7 years to another site I was running, till I shut that site down and actually started using the other site with Real Content, now the other site points (302) to this one.
So where in all that does the fact I've had both domains for @ 10 years affect ranking?

Just a guess based on my knowledge and experience, but I would assume that domains that are simply redirected to other domains would incur no authority at all and would start from scratch once they became a unique domain in and of itself.

That scenario isn't quite true, as at one point both ran unique for @2 years, them DMO forwarded to SSPL which Ran @ 6years and now SSPL forwards to DMO which has been up @ year with new content.
How does that screw with G!'s assesment of my site?
