This discussion focuses on Portals to Nonduality and Meditative Manipulations of Time. Time perception‚ the indefinite continued progress of existence and events in the past, present, and future‚ is a universal human construct that varies as a function of age and gender, and is influenced by a variety of other internal and external factors. In this light, the contention that time perception reflects the mind’s propensity to customize individual reality is considered within the framework of duality and nonduality, and the apparent influences of various meditation techniques on time perception are explored. Finally, the contention that these techniques serve as portals to a non-dual perception of reality is examined."
