Evolution and Sophistication
“Light and sound”
It is obvious that the evolutionary process in life must have evolved either a primitive man or a primitive woman, because it is impossible for the first primitive ovum and sperm to exist so that the first primitive man or woman could exist.
Every atom of a seed is light and not seed. This implies that light has evolved and sophisticated to be the first primitive ovum or sperm and evolved and sophisticated to be the first primitive man or woman.
Therefore, the evolutionary process has further evolved and sophisticated the first primitive man or woman’s bodily movements and speech to be what it is in the present day man or woman.
The sophisticated and evolved movements of present-day man are expressed as walking, running, doing exercise, work of any nature and not doing work of any nature. All these are a feature of the evolutionary process of sophistication and not done by man or woman.
The sophisticated and evolved sounds as speech of present-day man are expressed as speaking, lecturing and teaching. All these are a feature of the evolutionary process of sophistication of life and not done by man or woman.
Every atom of a man or a woman is light and neither man nor woman. This indicates that the sophisticated and evolved movements of man or woman are a feature of light and not done by man or woman.
Similarly, speaking, lecturing and teaching indicate that these sophisticated and evolved expressions of man or woman are a feature of sound and not done by man or a woman.
Every atom of everything in nature is light as well, just as every atom in human beings is light. This implies that nature has evolved and sophisticated to be what it is, as a feature of light and sound.
The enlightened have rightly declared that daily life is an illusion of light and sound, and neither man nor woman brings about daily life to be what it is in every moment.
Life evolves and sophisticates to be what it is in every moment, albeit illusory.

Appreciation and understanding of what is and what is believed to be radiates from this article. There is deep gratitude for this gift of understanding as it evolves. As man approaches this understanding, the gift of knowledge in this process of evolution is appreciated. Neither the knowledge nor the understanding is at any man’s beck and call. It is as it is in every moment.

German Translator’s Note:
That almost everybody knows the Theory of Evolution by Charles Darwin, though not everybody agrees with it, means that it should be possible for all to follow the wise explanations by Dr. Shankar in this article. Only few have pondered in depth about evolution and sophistication as yet. This is remarkable, because one should always ask where the first individual of any species could have come from. The answers to this question are most of the time religious. They all carry a belief with them, not a deep enquiry. What is shared by the wise, however, has nothing to do with a belief, it is deep understanding. If it is meant to happen, as part of the evolution and sophistication of life, it will happen.
