Life is filled with diverse shape and form in colour and black and white as well. All the diverse form and shape that exists in life is understood by labels as knowledge.
One of the forms and shapes present in life are letters in the alphabet of any language. The shape and form in the alphabet are evident and are expressed through writing on any surface, including the smart phone and computer.
Man and woman with knowledge understand that they can write in the language that they know. Man and woman know that he or she has learned writing because their parents taught writing to them. This is knowledge.
What is wisdom of writing is the question?
Wisdom reveals that writing was not taught to the first man who wrote by his parents, because the question is who taught the parents? Wisdom reveals that the evolution of human, bodily movements is expressed as writing in the humans.
Wisdom reveals that every moment is crude to begin in a child. As the child grows due to evolution, the child’s movements evolve from a crude to a refined state. This is evident in writing in a child because the shape and form of letters in the alphabet become refined in writing by a child.
Wisdom reveals that every moment in life is precise and the moment is neither late nor early. Wisdom reveals that the movement within the moment due to evolution is precise and it is neither late nor early.
Wisdom reveals that the evolved movement within the moment is initially crude and eventually becomes refined as evolution evolves. Wisdom reveals that the guidance from parent to child on how to write is precise as well.
Wisdom reveals that the guidance from parent to child and the evolution of movements in a child are precise as well. Wisdom reveals that, when the guidance of a parent synchronises with the crude evolution of the writing movement of a child, it deceives the parent that the child is beginning to learn writing.
Wisdom reveals that, when the guidance of a parent synchronises with the eventual evolution of the writing movement of a child, it deceives the parent into believing that the child has successfully learnt writing.
Wisdom reveals that writing is a collection of precise, evolutionary movements in the moment in life. Wisdom reveals that writing is illusory and so is every shape and form in life.
Wisdom reveals that writing, including every shape and form in life, is included in the singular movement of life. The enlightened have rightly proclaimed that writing, though present, is illusory in life.
Knowledge takes writing for granted. Wisdom is grateful to life for its gift of writing to man.
The enlightened accept everyone as they are whether they write or do not write.

The reality being revealed in this article by the wise, namely that the singular movement of life contains every shape and form that has been, is and will ever be, confounds the mind. Furthermore, that every shape and form that has been, is and ever will be is an illusion – it is not what the mind says it is. And yet, by the gift of the intelligence of life, for over two hundred years basic skills have been taught to children as first essentials in their education. These are known as the three Rs: reading, writing and arithmetic. It has become the responsibility of every household and the legal duty of the state to introduce these skills to every child. It is also the duty of the state to appoint men and women, for the different ages of children, to teach them. The provision of life lacks nothing for the welfare of every animate and inanimate being. Understanding this brings acceptance.

German Translator‘s Note:
That it is neither parents nor teachers who teach children basic cultural techniques such as writing, but it is life that manifests itself as a teacher and a learner, the learning and the learnt, albeit illusory, is the most important realization in the life of every human being when it happens. Dr. Shankar shares with humanity an insight that has been proclaimed by the Enlightened Beings for millennia, but is mostly not understood. This transmission of wisdom is also not the result of a teacher-disciple relationship, but develops spontaneously if it is meant to.
