Does not mean what most people think it means. Traditionally involving the fear of failure, suffering and death experienced by humans who believe themselves to be in an uncertain existence, it now is more commonly used to describe what makes up +90% of the content of popular teen-dominated blogging services.
If the order-chaos balance is tipped somewhat towards the ordered side, I propose "ordotic". It's like the difference between a meat and potato pie, and a potato and meat one. (Believe me, there is a difference. :)
Also, I wouldn't equate either word to neutral, quite; they potentially have similar meanings, but having properties of both chaos and order doesn't necessarily mean that the chaos-to-order ratio is equal. (Also, "neutral" implies, at least to my mind, a somewhat benign and passive state, whereas I see both "chaordic" and "ordotic" as very active words, ones that emphasize the presence rather than absence of both properties.)
arbeiration.n. the condition wherein two or more people each contribute something to the other that facilitates the other's contribution to them, particularly in an emotional sense, creating an endless upwards spiral; a virtuous circle. To arbeirate: to spiral such.
Their arbeiration fulfilled them; when he was happy, she was happy too, and so it was for him.
Aww, what a lovely way to think of it. I certainly think love at first sight would be a type of theracence; when you know without analysis or experience that you were meant to be close to someone, that it is right for someone to be part of your life.
theracence.n. a certainty of knowledge impressed upon one through other channels than logical deduction or belief; a knowledge that enters directly into one's mind along with the indisputable certainty that it is true, which cannot be derived from only observation of existence, and results in a knowing more certain than that which one can derive from observation alone. To therace: to know in this way, often in the form to therace that.
She possessed theracence of the fundamental nature of the universe, which many said was impossible.
He theraced that what he had just learnt was true.
I love your "more about" profile, too. Really, those are all the things that one needs to know about something: is it beautiful; is it sincere; is it real. And frequently something that is one of those three will also be the other two....
