Birth of man

58 out of 115
(n) a hypnosis like state. When a man is so lost in something that he becomes absent to everything else around him, he is said to be in a trance. Origin: L transpire, to go across => 'to go across to a different mental state' => 'to go across to a state different from the normal, wakeful state of the mind.' The sleepwalker walked as if in a trance. His wife kept calling him but he kept moving forward like a programmed robot. There is another 'entrance' which is built as enter+ -ance and means 'entry point.' The two entrances are homonyms.
