- n. Alternative spelling of akasa.
from The Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. Ether; one of the five gross elements (the others being air, fire, water, and earth) which, according to the Sānkhya system of Indian philosophy, make up the visible world; the subtile fluid which fills and pervades infinity and is supposed to be the peculiar vehicle of life and sound. Unlike air (vāyu), which is always moving and penetrates only where it can find an entrance, akasha is perfectly immovable and exists everywhere.
