Meditation is a Tier Two technology that unlocks the Mountain Temple, expensive buildings built on mountains that are worth a large number of points. The number of points each Mountain Temple is worth increases over time. Meditation also grants a defence bonus to friendly units on mountains. (A single shield around a unit's HP indicates that the unit has a defence bonus.) Finally, Meditation unlocks the Pacifist task: if no attacks are made for five consecutive turns, the Altar of Peace will be earned. (Retaliation, capturing cities, and converting units with a Mind Bender do not count as attacks in this case.)

Meditation can only be researched after unlocking Climbing. Meditation leads to Philosophy.

The Ai-Mo tribe starts with Meditation.
