What is there before Wisdom?
There is no 'before wisdom'!
There is only before 'awareness of wisdom'
Even before there is 'awareness of wisdom' there is occasional expressions of wisdom. There most likely no recognition that it is wisdom. This is (possibly) because of the idea that wisdom is something that only old people from other cultures might possess.
Wisdom is not learned, it is revealed.
It cannot be possessed because it is a process and not a thing.
First there has to be an acceptance that Wisdom exists as a possibile reality.
Enquiry and recognition are the revealers.
Enquiry into whether there are more possibilities.
Recognition of a particular feeling, an altered state of consciousness.
Recognition of a rhythm in the flow.
Recognition of an effortless arising of possibilities.

Wisdom deserves a lot more than just the previous post.
i probably couldn't do justice to this subject no matter how much conceptualisation i do.
i imagine that i only know a little of Wisdom.
i have a feeling, a physical sensation that i recognise when i am being wise. At the same time there is a 'wide angle' view of the subject. An absence of 'me' and an absence of opinion is evident.
When i am being wise, that 'wide angle' view means that lateral possibilities as well as vertical possibilities are considered with logic checksum processing. Ideas 'appear' without effort. (as ideas do)
It seems that wisdom is mainly/only present when a decision is required. (this needs testing...)
Time distortion exists as when in a conversation the decision as to how to respond is made after a seeming relaxed consideration of the whole range of possibilities. All this occurs during what appears to be a normally paced conversation.
It is a distinctly an altered state of consciousness.
The above is noticed from inside wisdom.
