Spontaneous Uncontrollable Unpredictable (2)
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 water is present in every moment in life, because air that is present in every moment in life contains oxygen and hydrogen molecules, which form water.
Wisdom reveals that the presence of moment in life is spontaneous, uncontrollable and unpredictable. Wisdom reveals that water is present in every moment because humans are dependent on water to live life. This signifies that the presence of water in every moment is spontaneous, uncontrollable and unpredictable.
Water not only quenches the thirst in humans, it also enables bacteria in the human and animal body to survive. The bacteria that use water 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.
Water in the moment enables fishes to live. This is because water is made up of oxygen molecules that enable fishes and every living species in the animal kingdom that lives in water to be able to live in water
Water is also involved in the many physiological functions within every human cell. Lack of water in the moment means that cellular functions within every cell, which are essential for human survival, would not be possible.
This signifies that water is in every moment in life because life is in every moment in life. This further signifies that water makes life go on spontaneously, uncontrollably and unpredictably.
The enlightened have rightly proclaimed that life goes on spontaneously, uncontrollably and unpredictably and before and after in life is, albeit, illusory.

Man’s trust in what is spontaneous, uncontrollable and unpredictable matures gradually, if it is meant to. Meanwhile, man takes air and water for granted whilst his dependence on them is not threatened. Yet, literature reveals that the ancient Greeks revered these elements as gods - Aer and Poseidon – actively seeking their favourable disposition towards their endeavours. The gift of the enlightened, however, in this article is their deep understanding of what is the essence of life for man: it knows no human cause, no human control nor any human expectation. Such a gift.

German Translator’s Note:
In everyday life, humans often think about what they need in order to get better and better: money, friends, pleasure, etc. But man rarely realizes what the true basis of his existence is and that none of it can be under his control, because even water is not under man's control. The wise, like Dr. Shankar in this article, show man the hidden illusory basics of all existence in human everyday life: five elements, including water – a mystery!
