Personal Glossary



en·an·ti·o·dro·mi·a (enan´tēəˈdrō´mēa) n. (rare) the tendency of things to change into their opposites, especially as a supposed governing principle of natural cycles and of psychological development. Principle introduced in the West  by Carl Jung. Ex: "the remorseless enantiodromia between good luck and bad."

This word describes some of the wonder of nature and our own consciousness. For example, when some chickens morph into roosters or some female hummingbirds, they mimic male color patterns when gathering food for their young. Recently, Condors along the Northern Arizona border have made themselves pregnant.



in·zom·bia (in-zom-bee-uh) n. The condition where you can’t sleep (through this envelopment of our minds by cyborg capitalist leeches, whose intent is to dream you to death).


pal𐄁imp𐄁sest (pal´imp sest´) n. a manuscript or piece of writing material on which the original writing has been effaced to make room for later writing but of which traces remain. Something reused or altered but still bearing visible traces of its earlier form.

I first saw this word in the Carl Sagan novel, Contact. He was describing the encrypted message sent by the alien intelligence that was overlapping dimensionally. I was fascinated. I looked it up, etc. I learned it was a description of ancient cuneiform clay tablets used by merchants and others to keep track of interactions or a list. It was then sanded away so it could be scribed again. But some of the old layers leak through…I started seeing it in the world. I think it’s a good name for life.




pla𐄁cee𐄁beau (pləˈsiː.bəʊ) n. A temporal relationship until the real thing comes along?

“I’m not sure it’s working, but it makes me feel better,” she said. “I definitely feel that I’m in the control group”, he said.

rand·om pa·ttern (ran´dm pat´ərn) 

An oxymoron if I’ve ever heard one.



un·sane (un-seyn) a. A state of mind that is neither insane nor sane (If sane is defined as an adherence to absolute, unconscious axioms which were programmed early in this techno-charged hulking narcissistic materialistic culture, through no fault of its own, and imbedded in our very fairy tale views of what is right and good, period.)

Unsane is not this. Unsane is acknowledging our ‘clownness’ in the car of this earth.
