1. (noun) - The drug used by the Superbrights as a means of forwarding Cataclyst[1] ideology. At high doses, the drug erases all sense of "self", but can be used at low doses to force a change in perspective by violently disrupting the mind's established, "normal" way of interpreting reality.

2. (noun) - The most efficient (and dangerously destructive) means of breaking out an established paradigm, into a different Prigoginic[2] Level of Complexity.

3. (name) - The internet alias of an insane nerd in the San Francisco Bay Area. A UNIX and Free Software advocate, who has been programming from a very young age. Expect a strange mix of very-traditional UNIX philosophy and technique, mixed with seemingly random or surreal tangents.
