To Reason (2)
Whenever the educated or the uneducated man or woman does not reason the way he or she is expected to, it is neither applauded nor appreciated. The same is not expected every time he or she wants to reason.
The non-appreciation of the reasoning happens in the moment and is known in the moment by those who expect him or her how to reason.
Wisdom reveals that every moment in life renews itself and in between a moment in the mind and in life is moment as well. This signifies that a moment in life and in the mind is eternal.
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 that this is proof that man neither decides nor reasons nor predicts nor predetermines. Wisdom reveals that even the movement of the hand to press the button happens and the brain does not make the movement happen in the moment.
Wisdom further reveals that reasoning 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 reasoned by man or his brain.
Does not reason the way he or she is expected to reason happens for understanding to happen that reasoning is not an actuality in a moment. Does not reason the way he or she is expected to reason happens for understanding to happen that reasoning in any moment is illusory and not real. Does not reason the way he or she is expected to reason happens for understanding to happen that reasoning is not present but only moving is present. Also, for understanding to happen that moving in any moment is instinct.
The moving happens for understanding to happen that when the moving is accepted as reasoning, it is believed that man and woman can reason and know how to reason.
Wisdom reveals that reasoning 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 does not make the moving, which is instinct, in the moment to happen. This is because they do not make the moment in life.
The enlightened accept what man or woman reason and do not expect them to reason in a particular manner, because they understand that reasoning is not present, but only instinct is present in any moment in life. The enlightened proclaim that man or woman will reason the way he or she is meant to reason, 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 is instinct in any moment 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.

Grammar is a system that has evolved in every language, spoken, recorded or written. Its structure is fundamental to the coherent expression of any idea that is present in the human mind, however simple or complex it may be. The grammatical system of any language is learned as a native or studied as a student.
Careful examination of every sentence in this article, for example, lays bare the grammatical structure that gifts its meaning. For example, a verb will either be transitive or intransitive, depending on whether it governs an object or does not. However, the depth of understanding of meaning in this article is not determined by grammar nor by any human endeavour. Each one of us will come to understand at the level we are meant to on our journey. It is a remarkable journey; the gift of the intelligence of life.

German Translator‘s Note:
The illusory but existing purpose of thoughts is to understand their illusoriness. The understanding depends on the evolution of intellect to which superficial or deep reasoning happens or does not happen. Wise understanding as presented here by Dr. Shankar, happens by deep reasoning. If thoughts are understood to be illusory, their purpose and every pupose is revealed to be illusory as well. How does thought happen and what is a thought? Dr. Shankar‘s article conveys by deep reasoning that life is singular movement of light, sound and colours including the movement of thought, albeit illusory.
