Spontaneous Uncontrollable Unpredictable (4)
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 earth is made up of elements and the elements are present in the moment.
Wisdom reveals that elements in earth are made up of air, water and fire, meaning heat, because air, water and heat are present in every moment in daily life and so too earth is present in every moment.
Wisdom reveals that the presence of moment in life is spontaneous, uncontrollable and unpredictable. Wisdom reveals that earth is present in every moment in daily life, because elements are present in every human cell in life. This signifies that the presence of earth, meaning the elements of air, water and fire in every moment in life is spontaneous, uncontrollable and unpredictable.
Wisdom reveals that the elements in earth not only makes every human cell function, earth also enables bacteria in the human and animal body to survive. The bacteria that need earth to survive are essential for man’s survival as bacteria utilise the dissolved food to provide man much needed vitamins and other essential products, which enable humans and animals to survive.
Wisdom reveals that earth is also involved in the many physiological functions within every human cell. Lack of earth in the moment means that cellular functions within every cell, which are essential for human survival, would not be possible.
This signifies that earth is in every moment in life, because life is in every moment in life. This further signifies that earth 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.

In knowledge, man depends for his survival on cosmic elements, as they are termed- air, water, fire, earth. In the tradition of Greek mythology, Demeter, the sister of Zeus, was worshipped as the goddess of the fertile earth. In wisdom, as revealed in these articles, the elements are present in every moment of life, subject to no human cause, no human control, nor any human expectation. So be it.
