The intelligence of life in the moment as knowledge convinces man and woman to be a doer because knowledge informs man and woman that an action or a word, which they do or say, happens in the moment.
Man and woman, therefore, want to know when an action happened or when anything was said. The knowledge that man and woman are doers is cemented in every mind because they see what they or others do and hear what they say or others say.
Though knowledge has convinced man and woman to be doers, knowledge of doership, however, is not free from different emotions that accompany when they see or hear what others do or say.
The intelligence of life in the moment as wisdom regarding ‘when’, however, is free of emotions that accompany knowledge of when it happened.
What is the wisdom regarding ‘When’, is the question?
Wisdom reveals that, when anything which is done or said is in the moment, the knowledge of how to do is in the moment as well. Wisdom reveals that a moment in life is always present.
Wisdom in life reveals that a moment, which is always present in life, is precise. Wisdom in life reveals that the content, which is within any moment, is precise as well.
Wisdom in life reveals that the content, which is within any moment, cannot be other than the content which is in the moment. Wisdom in life reveals that the timing of the content is always precise as well.
Wisdom in life reveals that the content within the moment is neither late nor early. Wisdom in life reveals that the content of any moment in life is always precisely on time.
Wisdom in life reveals that the content of any moment in life is only a single movement with sound. Wisdom in life reveals that the content of any moment in life is neither two or many movements nor two or many sounds.
Wisdom in life reveals that the single movement with sound in any moment in life includes one of the five senses and not all the five senses in the same moment in life.
Wisdom in life reveals that, when a movement with sound and sense happens within any moment, it is not made by man or woman. Wisdom reveals that man and woman do not make senses, movement or sound. Wisdom reveals that senses, actions and words, albeit illusory, happen to man and woman by the intelligence in life in the moment.
Wisdom in life reveals that the singular movement of life, which includes the five senses, deceives man and woman that they can know when anything is said or done. This is because ‘When’, as knowledge, implies the presence of a numerical duration of time within the moment, but wisdom reveals that numerical duration of time is absent in every moment in life.
Knowledge takes for granted when anything is done or said. Wisdom is grateful to life for its gift of when anything that is done or said for man and woman, though neither man nor woman do or say.
The enlightened have rightly proclaimed that man and woman are not the doer.

The understanding of knowledge of man and woman by Dr Shankar reveals the firm convictions which determine the course of their daily lives, albeit illusory. They are convinced of their responsibility, for better or for worse, not only in carrying out actions, but also in determining what should be done and when. This is the mark of a man’s maturity, the so-called man of the world. There is no man and no woman who escapes this determination. Meanwhile, they expect life to accommodate their wishes, but are disappointed when it does not. However, this is not the way of the wise who bring their understanding of the intelligence of life to mankind. Fortunate and deeply grateful are those who come to share this deep understanding, which is wisdom.
