Anoesis


A state of mind consisting of pure sensation or emotion without any cognitive content.

Came across this word the other day. It made me think. What could be the varied situations when somebody could go be in a state of anoesis…and what a relief it would be to rid your mind off cognitive content for a while.

Many people would probably think that using some sort of substance would be the only way to truely attain such a state…but am sure it can be and has been done through other ways too.

An intriguing word. And even more intriguing thoughts 🙂

  1. Sorry…couldn’t help noticing the irony there…the word means absence of cognition (thinking) and it triggered ‘interesting thoughts’ in your head 🙂
