ActiveRecord lifecycle

Can someone point me a where the active record lifecycle. It's
discussed in the docs on the callbacks, but it's never actually
defined there. I just want to know what happens when.

That should have been:

Can someone point me a where the docs for the active record lifecycle
are. Anyone?
