  • exulansis

    n. the tendency to give up trying to talk about an experience because people are unable to relate to it—whether through envy or pity or simple foreignness—which allows it to drift away from the rest of your life story, until the memory itself feels out of place, almost mythical, wandering restlessly in the fog, no longer even looking for a place to land.

    Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows

    November 14, 2017

  • n. the moment a conversation becomes real and alive, which occurs when a spark of trust shorts out the delicate circuits you keep insulated under layers of irony, momentarily grounding the static emotional charge you’ve built up through decades of friction with the world.

  • avenoir - n. the desire that memory could flow backward

    We take it for granted that life moves forward. But you move as a rower moves, facing backwards: you can see where you’ve been, but not where you’re going. And your boat is steered by a younger version of you. It’s hard not to wonder what life would be like facing the other way…

    Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows

    November 14, 2017

  • From the dictionary of obscure sorrows "n. a feature of modern society that suddenly strikes you as absurd and grotesque—from zoos and milk-drinking to organ transplants, life insurance, and fiction—part of the faint background noise of absurdity that reverberates from the moment our ancestors first crawled out of the slime but could not for the life of them remember what they got up to do."

    November 14, 2017

  • n. a state of exhaustion inspired by an act of senseless violence, which forces you to revise your image of what can happen in this world—mending the fences of your expectations, weeding out invasive truths, cultivating the perennial good that’s buried under the surface—before propping yourself up in the middle of it like an old scarecrow, who’s bursting at the seams but powerless to do anything but stand there and watch.

  • plural form of googolism

    November 4, 2017

  • Noun (googology)

    Loosely, a googolism can be defined as a mathematical number relevant to googology. Like googologism, except limited to numbers.

    From Sbiis Saibian himself: "A googolism is a number name. In other words it's a specific name assigned to specific number. In it's most general sense then, even pi and e are googolisms because they are specific names created to provide a name for these specific irrational constants. When Graham's Number was defined, this was not a googolism, but when Gardner dubbed this number Graham's Number he was coining a googolism."
