If the Ishopanishad is spoken by a sage, how is it apaurusheya?

From Divyangi Lalita M

In the explanation of the Isopanishad, you had mentioned that it is a conversation between sages. Since this knowledge is also called apaurseya, meaning directly spoken by the Lord, I am not able to connect these two together. Can you please explain.

    The answer is , the vedic scriptures are apaurusheya and nitya but sometimes get the names like kathopanishad , it is spoken by kath but he only narrated the vedic conclusions only but that message was already existing. Tattiriyaopanishad is same. VyAsdev only compiled the vedic scriptures, he did not write something new, otherwise srimad bhagvat can not be pramAn. It is already there but becomes manifested at some periods. This is how every acharya has seen it and that is how we should see it.
