Primitive man did not have wisdom because knowing wisdom did not happen to primitive man and primitive man could not make knowing wisdom happen to him or her.
As evolution progressed intellect evolved in primitive man. Intellect evolved as knowing. Initially knowing wisdom evolved in primitive man, and primitive man did not make knowing wisdom happen, because primitive man could not make intellect happen to him.
Knowing wisdom will also evolve in modern man and modern man does not make knowing wisdom happen to him, because even modern man cannot make intellect happen to him.
This is evident in modern man because modern man comes to know with certainty only after the known happens to him. This signifies that memory was known only after memory happened to man.
Brain scans reveal that decisions happen seven seconds before man decides. The scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences reveal that human decisions are made seconds before humans become aware of them.
In the study, participants could freely decide if they wanted to press a button with their right or left hand. The only condition was that they had to remember when they made the decision to use either their right hand or left hand.
Using FMRI, researchers scanned the brains of the participants to find out if they could predict which hand the participants would use before participants were consciously aware of the decision.
The results by monitoring the micro patterns of activity in the front-polar cortex, were that the researchers could predict which hand the participant would choose seven seconds before the participant was aware of the decision.
Wisdom reveals this is proof that man neither decides nor predicts or predetermines. Wisdom reveals that even the movement of the hand to press the button happens and the brain does not make the movement to happen in the moment.
Wisdom further reveals that knowing wisdom happens for understanding to happen that only moving is in every moment and that every moment is only moving. Also for wise understanding to happen that moving in every moment is instinct and instinct cannot be controlled by man or his brain.
Knowing wisdom happens for understanding to happen that knowing wisdom is not an actuality in a moment. The knowing wisdom happens for understanding to happen that knowing wisdom in any moment is illusory and not real. The knowing wisdom happens for understanding to happen that knowing wisdom is not present but only moving is present.
The moving happens for understanding to happen that when the moving is accepted as knowing wisdom, it is believed that man and woman make knowing wisdom.
Wisdom reveals that knowing is not done in the moment because life is only moving in the moment. Wisdom also reveals that the intelligence in life manifests the moving and man or woman neither make the moving nor the knowing in the moment to happen, because they do not make the moment in life.
The enlightened accept what man or woman know and do not expect them to know, because they understand that knowing is not present but only moving is present in any moment in life. The enlightened proclaim that man or woman will know what he or she is meant to know, albeit illusory.
Sri Ramana Maharishi has declared that what is meant to happen, albeit illusory, will happen. Sri Adi Shankaracharya has declared that man is not the doer in Nirvanashadakam. Kenopanishad verse (1.3) declares that word and mind cannot access the Absolute One. Bhagwat Gita chapter 3 verse 27 declares that man is not the doer.
The enlightened understand that the moving in any moment is instinct and is manifested by the intelligence in life and is neither done by man nor by his brain. The enlightened have declared that life is a singular movement.
The enlightened have proclaimed that man and woman will come to know the wisdom that they are meant to know.

It is said anecdotally that there are many paths to the centre of the forest. Each path leads each of us on the journey that is determined by the intelligence of life. Furthermore, no two paths are the same and yet we meet each other, albeit illusorily, on the way. No two meetings are ever the same, notwithstanding their appearance, for the wise have declared that life never repeats itself. Understanding this is wisdom and liberation from the grip of the past and from the hope of the future. Such is the reality of life as it is, yet cannot be known.
