… Excogitations?

So far, when I enthusiastically told friends this stimulating word, everyone asked me: “What’s that?” I like when people ask. After roaming in the net, I found most dictionary sites use the same database with identical definitions.

This is the meaning that I discovered:

1.  Thinking something out with care to achieve complete understanding of it

2.  Microsoft Encarta does not know the word… surprise, surprise

3.  Oxford Dictionary: Origin: early 16th century: from Latin excogitat => ‘found by process of thought’, from the verb excogitare > ex ‘out’ + > cogitare ‘think’. . . therefore, an old codger is a person of some age who thinks.  One wonders what caused the derogative undertone.

My website name, URL, is xcogitations.  The contributions under this heading contain inspirations, which sprung from extended pondering.  The selection was not founded on their importance, instead, they occupied my mind for far too long.  You know this annoying feeling?  Writing them down gets rid of this feeling and releases the occupied bits of brain cells.  There is only a limited number, the average adult human brain has about 100 billion cells.

Mostly, I have not achieved a complete understanding of the topics.   This leaves room for your thoughts and comments.  Here we go….
