Knowledge makes man and woman believe. Man and woman believe ‘I think a thought and also think many thoughts. Knowledge convinces man and woman that he or she can think a thought and many thoughts as well.
Wisdom reveals that man and woman neither think a thought nor many thoughts. Wisdom convinces man and woman that he or she only believes that they think and can think many thoughts as well.
Wisdom accepts every thought that knowledge convinces is thought by man or woman in life. Wisdom nevertheless understands the conviction of knowledge that man and woman do not think a thought or many thoughts.
What is this wisdom is the question?
Wisdom reveals that within a moment only a moment exists and a moment does not have two moments within it. Wisdom reveals that a moment in life was much before man was in the moment.
Wisdom reveals that man does not make the moment in life, because the moment was in life much before man was in the moment. The moment was in life and accommodated vegetation and animals within it and later the moment accommodated man within it along with vegetation and animals. Wisdom also reveals that animals live instinctively and do think to live.
Wisdom reveals that within a moment only one thought can be within it and not many thoughts. Wisdom reveals that within a moment only one letter can be within it and not many letters. Wisdom also reveals that one letter of a thought within the moment is manifested by the intelligence as an illusion of subtle sound within the moment and not by man. This is because man does not make the moment in life.
Wisdom reveals that thinking a thought is made up of many letters. Wisdom also reveals that only one letter can be present within one moment and not many letters due to thinking.
Wisdom reveals that a moment in life is manifested by the intelligence in life. Wisdom reveals that how a moment is manifested by the intelligence in life is a mystery.
Wisdom reveals that how subtle sound is manifested by the intelligence in life is a mystery. Wisdom reveals that how many subtle sounds are manifested by the intelligence in life as many thoughts in a moment is a mystery.
Wisdom reveals that a single subtle sound within a moment is a mystery, which signifies that many subtle sounds within a moment too is a mystery. Wisdom reveals that though man and woman believe that he or she thinks, the belief is neither irrefutable truth nor wisdom
Wisdom reveals that thinking is albeit illusory, because life is only a singular movement of subtle and gross sound. Wisdom reveals that the intelligence in life manifests illusory thinking of a thought and many thoughts, an illusory language and illusory many languages out of a singular moving life in the human mind.
The enlightened have rightly proclaimed that daily life is illusory and not real.

Man spends a considerable part of his or her life in a private thinking-well. Thinking is thought to have a reality and significance that commands authority. Thus it is justified by its own mechanism: thinking. It is a constant companion: a thought when awake or a dream when asleep. Its content may be constructive or it may be destructive or just idle speculation. In the 17th century the act of thinking was awarded philosophical significance by the French philosopher Descartes, who said in Latin: ‘cogito ergo sum’ (I think therefore I am). It was later celebrated in the 19th century by the French sculptor Rodin with his famous statue of The Thinker. Such are the gifts of the intelligence of life, albeit illusory. Depth of understanding gifted in this article and elsewhere by the enlightened reveals the illusory nature of thinking, notwithstanding its status in human consciousness.
