In Hindu philosophy, sattva (Sanskrit sattva "purity", literally "existence, reality"; adjectival s�?ttvika "pure", anglicised sattvic) is the highest of the three gunas in Samkhya, s�?ttvika "pure", r�?jasika "dim", and t�?masika "dark".

limberbellona commented on the word tzimtzum
In Jewish Mysticism, Tzimtzum (צמצו�? Hebrew: "contraction" or "constriction") refers to the notion in the Kabbalistic theory of creation that God "contracted" his infinite light in order to allow for a "conceptual space" in which a finite, seemingly independent world could exist.
The function of the Tzimtzum was "to conceal from created beings the activating force within them, enabling them to exist as tangible entities, instead of being utterly nullified within their source" 1. The tzimtzum produced the required "vacated space" (chalal panui חלל פנוי, chalal חלל), devoid of direct awareness of God's presence.

worst word ever.
"finger" is bad enough without the "n" directly after it. your tongue has to do a weirdness in your mouth to pronounce this. "fin. fingern. ails."

limberbellona commented on the word kif
I remember "kif" from Sam Kashner's memoir about the Beatniks. Someone yells into a phone Sam called his mom on, "This boy refuses our kif"
