Really?

I thought once a man experiences vaginal sex, and if he has a steady partner (wife/gf), then, he finds masturbation degrading or not the real thing.

Perhaps, you masturbate so often in a month since you rarely have sex with your wife considering your bisexuality that's more inclined towards the homosexual aspect than to the straight one.

'I Am Legend' the movie with the alternate ending (not the crappy theatrical ending) was closest to the Matheson novel of the same name. In the book, the monsters were vampires created by a global pandemic.
In the novel Robert Neville finally realize the HE was the legend (the stuff of nightmares)to the vampires and their children because he killed them. However, instead of trying to cure the vampires in the novel, he used his medical expertise to come up with more efficient ways of killing them.
The Omega Man was truer to the original book.

Not every trance experience leads to the nondual union in consciousness of the object with the subject.

Depending on the subject of meditation, the meditator's consciousness may enter trance if the aspiration is deep enough and if the mantra on which one meditates gets sufficiently activated but once trance sets in with the reversal of the meditator's consciousness and its opening up then too the trance may simply involve the seeing of a few inner lights/flares, hearing subtle sounds, or being spoken to by a voice that is the sonic aspect of the mantra, seed syllable or typal being that is the focus of one's meditation. These manifestations may arise in the tranced consciousness of the seer but it does not necessarily lead to a nondual union in consciousness of the meditator with the range of consciousness that one comes into direct contact with during meditation and the subsequent trance that ensues. This is why seers like Abraham, Moses, Muhammad, Bahaullah (founder of Bahaism), Zoroaster and Joan of Arc never spoke of nondualism but always mentioned a voice with the concomitant imagery of the vision. They came into contact via trance with various archetypal beings of different planes of consciousness -each calling itself god - and so these seers failed to understand the superior poise in consciousness which is nondualism. A sage who through trance unites in consciousness with the typal consciousness of a particular plane or with an archetypal being of that specific plane experiences the nondual state of existence. The sage who goes beyond the archetypal being of a particular plane and who penetrates and exceeds the phenomenal aspects of that particular plane and enters into the underlying principle that supports that plane with its inherent phenomena and archetypal beings is a higher nondualist and if he then enters into stasis with all the internal and external forces coming into a state of perfect balance then he is beyond monism and after the cessation of the experience he refuses to speak of the stasis since this condition in consciousness is so subtle that it is simply a profound inner experience that defies verbal description, even the most carefullly worded one. Stasis like trance and monism is of varying degreees and is attainable on any plane of consciousness with respect to the perfect blance of the forces of consciousness and energy of that particular plane of cosmic or supracosmic existence.

Stasis exceeds trance and nondualism though it is attained via these.

MUST READ:

The millennia-old Yoga Sutras of the great sage Patanjali is a rich mine of information on the science of meditation and samadhi and their accompanying stages and results.

A motionless indrawn state of consciousness is simply a trance and is neither a nondual experience nor is it the still subtler condition which is samadhi.

Seeing a fire, a burning bush, a throne, a winged horse, winged angels, a cube, an ascending staircase, animal-human hybrid forms or circles of light and hearing an inner voice or a clap of thunder are experienced in trance but these trance experiences are not a nondual experience nor are they samadhi (stasis) which are superior conditions.
