According to Dr. Pillai, we can divide time into four large divisions: (1) Time as it relates to our psychology and biology. (2) Chronological (clock time) as a cosmic principle outside of our psycho-biology. (3) Time as it relates to our work and business life. (4) Time as it relates to illusion or existing for real. These divisions overlap since they exist in interconnected environments.



Most of our response to time is mind-based. The mind can make our time seem longer or shorter. The classic example given by Einstein is that time flies by when we spend time with a friend we like. If the friend is someone we no longer like, time appears to be longer. This example can be extended to work, business and relationship areas as well. Time and its movement, then, is related to one’s state of mind.
Time moves fast during joyful moments whilst a painful one lingers on. “A watched pot never boils” is an ancient proverb based on the psychology of time. The movement of time during sleep requires another major consideration. Whilst sleeping, something considered a pleasant experience, the mind almost disappears. And as the mind disappears, time also disappears. Time equals Mind (T=M) is an important equation that everyone has to understand for proper time managment because time management is dependent on mind management.



In their famous book “Ending Time”, the Indian philosopher J. Krishnamurthy and the renowned physicist David Bohm have advanced the concept that time is mind or thought. They dig deeper into the Time=Mind equation and suggest that the phenomenon of time and mind revolves around the principle of movement. Both time and mind are then created by motion.

Physical time (or clock time) is created by the motion of the Sun and Moon (the solar and lunar calendars). Psychological time is created by the movement of thoughts. The difference between chronological clock time and psychological time is that the former cannot be stopped whilst the latter can be either stopped, or more practically, can be managed. Influencing and managing clock time through psychological mind-time is not a philosophical concept, but a doable practice that can be experimentally verified.

A case study to illustrate:

Ann needs to complete the production of a gadget for delivery to the customer within a week’s time. However, things went wrong at different levels and the product will never be produced within the deadline. Everyone is stressed out and does not know what to do. The problem of the unchangeable clock time deadline can be altered by controlling the psychological time within the mind. The mind can diffuse the physical deadline time by finding different alternatives, such as renegotiating the delivery time, finding a new technological solution, etc. This is not a novel idea and everyone uses these practical strategic steps.

However, there is yet another innovative method that involves taking the thinking mind to micro-levels to experience thoughts at the origin points. We think 50 thoughts per minute but are never conscious of the process. The mind can be taken to pre-thought or no-thought levels through various techniques, phoneme manipulations and changing other autonomous biological activities. The resulting effect is not simply calming for the mind but it also alters physical time in a magical way. This theory is better explained through the concept that “the Observer is the Observed” in Quantum Physics.

The most important point is that the mind process gives tangible results when you experience it in real life. It is a powerful alternative Time Management program wherein the psychological time processes change the somewhat unchangeable clock time deadline. How? The simple answer is at the subtlest levels, the psychological particles of micro-thoughts (which are indeed micro-time as well) interact with the physical material particles of clock time and change it. In layman’s terms, it falls under the ‘mind over matter’ concept.



When you stop time, stress disappears momentarily and shows up again when the mind comes back. For instance, when you go to sleep the stress disappears and it returns when you wake up. Stopping the mind by influencing SWS (Slow Wave Sleep) & REM sleep mechanisms can be manipulated through brain exercises that use specific phonemes. For instance, phoneme “Nidh” with a repetitive pitch to stop the mind, and phoneme “Nirodh” with a repetitive pitch to stop the cognitive mind and make you relaxed.



Both physics and mystics are interested in the subject. Einstein, for instance, said that time is an illusion and that there is no past, present or future, only timelessness. Modern physicists like Lee Smolin and others claim that time exists for real in every moment, but changes constantly. For all practical purposes, both theories are valid and have a utilitarian value. When you deduce the two theories to one common denominator, what we get is that we have freedom from time.

If you agree with Einstein that there is no time, you can find happiness through the fact that when time does not exist you cannot be stuck in it. If you agree with Smolin, you can find freedom from time because the existence of time is only moment to moment without continuity.
If we apply these two theories to our problems, whether a disease or financial problem, we come to an understanding that the disease or financial problem does not exist in time. However, this conclusion is only theoretical because the disease or the financial problem does exist and continues for all practicality. How to resolve this problem? Only neuroscience has the answer. Neuroscience can unite the physical time with the subjective time. In fact, there is no independent time other than what is perceived by the brain. Time is a superimposed phenomenon. You can live in a slow time, fast time or no time depending on how your brain and perception works.

To know that you can cancel the continuity of a disease / financial problem / legal problem / admin problem / marketing problem through manipulation of time through your brain’s perception is a liberating discovery for all humanity in the 21st century. We can achieve this goal through the digitalization of thought (time) second by second as discussed above.



Dr. Baskaran Pillai is a phenomenologist of religion, academic scholar, philanthropist, and an Enlightened Master from the Tamil Siddha tradition, who is deeply committed to helping people across the globe realize their full potential. As a scholar, he holds a Ph.D. in religious studies from the University of Pittsburgh, and two Master’s Degrees in English and Comparative literature from the University of Madurai.
As a philanthropist, he has initiated his educational programs in public schools and tuition centres to improve the academic and social skills of disadvantaged students in India, Mexico and the United States through brain-enhancement sounds. These programs are implemented through the Tripura Foundation (www.tripurafoundation org), established by Dr. Pillai in 1991, a consulting non-governmental organization to the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC).The Super Intelligence Program (SIP) incorporates brain enhancement exercises that improve learning, intelligence and comprehension, as well as behavioral problems commonly found in schools across the globe. The SIP uses the signature Phonemic Intelligence (Pl) Technology to activate learning centers in the brain using strategic hand placements and selected phonemic sounds. (phonemicintelligence.org)
Lovingly referred to by bestselling author Dr. Wayne Dyer as “one of the most enlightened people on the planet,” Dr. Pillai is perhaps the most progressive and innovative source of human development technology living in the world today.His educational institution, Pillai Center for Mind Science, (www.pillaicenter.com) transmits his mystical findings, which he correlates with cutting edge research from modern scientific fields such as neuroscience and quantum physics. The techniques and technology of Pillai Center are primarily focused on awakening dormant intelligence, power, and ability latent within the human brain, body,
and soul.
