When life evolved everything in life was crude. Understanding in man and woman in the moment was crude initially and, as evolution progressed, understanding in man and woman in the moment eventually became refined.
Crude understanding initially in man and woman was of sound, because only sound was naturally uttered through humans, just as sound is naturally uttered through modern-day, human babies.
Crude understanding of letters evolved next in humans. This is evident in humans as modern, human children, as they grow up, begin to pronounce letters in the alphabet of their parent language, which was just sounds uttered.
This phenomenon indicates crude understanding of letters evolved in humans, letters which were just sounds uttered. The letters were initially of crude understanding, meaning that they were not in order.
This phenomenon is evident in modern-day children as they pronounce letters initially at random and, later on, in the order present in alphabets of the language spoken by their parents.
Crude understanding of a word evolved next in humans, meaning that the word did not indicate the same entity every time the word was uttered. This phenomenon is evident in the modern child for it identifies a dog as a cat and not as dog every time.
The modern child identifies correctly the dog with a word eventually as the child evolves. Similarly, humans used a word correctly as understanding evolved as they grew.
Crude understanding of multiple words evolved next in humans, meaning that the words did not have context. This phenomenon is evident in the modern child because the child uses multiple words without context.
Crude understanding of multiple words in sentences evolved next in humans, meaning that the words in sentence did not have context. This phenomenon is evident in the modern child because the child uses multiple words in a sentence without context.
Refined understanding of multiple words in sentences with context evolved next in humans, meaning that the words in sentence did have context. This phenomenon is evident in the modern child because the child eventually uses multiple words in a sentence with context.
The refined understanding of sentences with context as a process in evolution gave rise to knowledge.
The enlightened have rightly proclaimed that man will come to know what he or she is meant to know.

The evolutionary journey in human communication and understanding from crude to refined, albeit illusory, is guided by the intelligence of life. This is the potential for every modern-day human being. The manifestation of the human embryo, as it sets out to realise this, is the jewel in the crown of existence. There is no inferior or superior, no faster or slower, no more worthy or less worthy. All that exists, albeit an illusion, is what it is in each moment. Nor is there any place for judgement on this journey, for man is not the doer. Yet he will come to realise what he is meant to realise - with God’s grace. Such is the enlightenment of the wise and their gift to humanity.
