~Hypnagogia~

Hypnagogia, also referred to as “hypnagogic hallucinations”, is the experience of the transitional state from wakefulness to sleep: the hypnagogic state of consciousness, during the onset of sleep. (The opposite transitional state from sleep into wakefulness is described as hypnopompic.) Mental phenomena that may occur during this “threshold consciousness” phase include hallucinations, lucid thought, lucid dreaming, and sleep paralysis. The latter two phenomena are themselves separate sleep conditions that are sometimes experienced during the hypnagogic state.

~The Seven Deadly Sins~

For ages, humankind struggled to find a conceptual system to operationalize their spiritual shortcomings.

~Pride is excessive belief in one’s own abilities, that interferes with the individual’s recognition of the grace of God. It has been called the sin from which all others arise. Pride is also known as Vanity.

~Envy is the desire for others’ traits, status, abilities, or situation.

~Gluttony is an inordinate desire to consume more than that which one requires.

~Lust is an inordinate craving for the pleasures of the body.

~Anger is manifested in the individual who spurns love and opts instead for fury. It is also known as Wrath.

~Greed is the desire for material wealth or gain, ignoring the realm of the spiritual. It is also called Avarice or Covetousness.

~Sloth is the avoidance of physical or spiritual work.

~Bioaccumulation & Biomagnification~

Bioaccumulation is the gradual accumulation of substances, such as pesticides or other chemicals, in an organism. Bioaccumulation occurs when an organism absorbs a substance at a rate faster than that at which the substance is lost or eliminated by catabolism and excretion.

Biomagnification, also known as bioamplification or biological magnification, is any concentration of a toxin, such as pesticides, in the tissues of tolerant organisms at successively higher levels in a food chain.
