    Hmmm. Elucidate. Barrage. Commensurable. Phantasmatic. Epistemophilia. Hermeneutic. Dissolution. Epiphany. Inexpressible. Subversion. Delineation. Transcience.

    All words you can just wrap your tongue and eyes around and let melt in your mouth and your mind like the finest chocolate. There are so many beautiful words.

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Basically, it would move people from confusion, but leave them with passivity? Even I'm not sure what that meant...
