So it can be even 1 sec?like when sweeping the road you may realize enlightment because of sudden development of wisdom?I know, buddhism is not what we think from the surface. But, when you go deeper and deeper you understand things little by little.
These faculties are not something new. They are in our 52 mental factors, but not developed since we havent trained them. For example, our feeling mental factor is already developed thats why we can feel (not the superficial feeling, but the mind one). Perception is also the same.
When someone does the meditation at the beginning his mind goes here and there. He doesnt even realize it. But when he continues on meditation at some point (this gradual) he feels as soon as his mind goes away, becuase he has developed a special mental factor to capture it. It cant be captured by anything else. There are some some similar factors will be developed in the 8 fold parth and the final fill be the wisdom.
One can do enlightment fast or slow solely depends on the development of these special factors.
The way mind works is amazing and fascinating. No, other religion (from what I studied) or science could ever go into this depth.
