- adjective Annihilated by one's self.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Not only the human race self-annihilated, but on top of it the future of humanity on that ship are all obese people who can't even walk, laying on their anti-gravity bed-chairs, plugged into the Internet or television permanently, to the extent that they barely notice the world around them, all that publicity choking their little spaceship.
Many novelists there are who know their art better than Charlotte Bronte, but she, like Byron -- and there are more points of resemblance between them than might at first be supposed -- is imperishable because she speaks under overwhelming pressure, self-annihilated, we may say, while the spirit breathes through her.
