In an emergency situation, reaction times get quicker as if time itself is running slower. The mind is processing more bits of information per second and this what I mean by “speed of consciousness”.
Now my question is: what is the “speed of consciousness” during meditation and during yoga?
I’m not sure…during meditation time runs slow, but equally reaction times whilst meditating would be exceedingly slow because one is a bit zoned out… What do you think?
Yoga is different again because one is very much zoned in…?
Mind is studied indirectly as Study of behaviour. This is difficult to study as no machines can sense it. Psychologists’ used EEG machine to study with prods attached to Yogis. Scale from 0 to 22 and reporting 0 – 4 as deep sleep, dreaming at 4 level. Then 4 – 7 is meditative state where we are awake but calm. Then 7 — 14 is slight agitation. Further more 14 — 22 is Disco. Yoga is not exercise but joining own energy with the vast outer energy. Some where, between 4 to 7 we gain energy. Mind is the fastest traveller. We can reach the Samadhi or Utsav state by combination of Karma Yog, Bhakti Yog and Gyan Yog. This is followed by Uparati, Dharana, Dhyan (which we are discussing) till Samadhi. Similarly this successful state is achieved when our Male & Female psychological brain work in tandem. Yes slow but steady win the powerful state of Trinity, the third Eye.
