Spontaneous Uncontrollable Unpredictable (1)
There are many quotes regarding the phenomenon that life goes on Knowledge informs man and woman that life goes on every moment. Wisdom reveals that a moment is always present in life.
Wisdom reveals that a moment renews itself eternally. Wisdom, therefore, signifies that the moment in life is eternal. Wisdom also reveals that a moment in life can neither be after or before a moment in life.
Wisdom reveals that, in knowledge, there is a moment before and after a moment.
Wisdom reveals that this is impossible and that the knowledge of a moment before and after in the mind does not exist as an actuality.
Wisdom reveals that a moment before and after a moment in the mind is an illusory thought in a moment. Wisdom reveals that air is present in every moment in life.
Wisdom reveals that the presence of moment in life is spontaneous, uncontrollable and unpredictable. Wisdom reveals that air is present in every moment because humans are dependent on air to live life. This signifies that the presence of air in every moment is spontaneous, uncontrollable and unpredictable.
Air not only quenches the hunger for air in humans, but it also enables bacteria in the human and animal body to survive. The bacteria that use air to survive are essential for man’s survival as bacteria utilise the dissolved food to provide man with much-needed vitamins and other essential products, which enable humans and animals to survive.
If air was absent in the atmosphere, bacteria that do not need air to survive would flourish. These bacteria are harmful to the humans and their excessive growth in humans would be bad for human health.
Air is also involved in the many physiological functions within every human cell. Lack of air or absence of air in the atmosphere means that cellular functions within every cell, which are essential for human survival, would not be possible.
Wisdom reveals that the air from lungs comes out during speech by humans as illusory words and meanings, which help humans to communicate. Wisdom reveals that the moment, including the presence of air as illusory words within the moment, is spontaneous, uncontrollable and unpredictable.
This signifies that air is in every moment in life because life is in every moment in life. This further signifies that air makes life go on spontaneously, uncontrollably and unpredictably.
The enlightened have rightly proclaimed that life goes on spontaneously, uncontrollably and unpredictably and that before and after in life is, albeit, illusory.

The presence of air has always been taken for granted save when it becomes restricted or contaminated. It is present and always has been present for all creatures and plants to breathe. Nor can inflatable objects necessary for man’s use function without the presence of air. Air, also traditionally recognised as ‘the breath of life’, enables the presence of this reader, albeit illusory, to receive this gift of the deep understanding of the author, also illusory, in this moment that is.

German Translator’s Note:
How wonderfully in this article by Dr. Shankar the survival as well as the daily life of every human being is brought to the point! Without air there is neither breathing nor communication, which is nothing but more or less hot air that appears as words with meanings. What a miracle of life that, when deeply understood, becomes a lasting admirable enjoyment.
