> I'd like to know when "They " took over the word, what is its etymology. What does "thymia" mean, anyway, and why wasn't euphoria, self descriptive as it is, acceptable?

I don't know Greek. Anyone?


> Is the language being used to hide somethings that we don't wan't to accept about this peculiar thing called "mood", which, my Clinical Psychologist friend has told me has no scientific definition, even though one can be diagnosed with haveing a Disorder of 'It'.

I think that moods are recognised as being real by all conscious beings, and that emotions can break down just like other bodily functions can.

> My supposition is, at the end, lies lack of Free Will, and I don't think "we" are able to accept that at the present time.

Free will, and the sense of being a "self," may be illusions, things that we experience because they're useful to us as human beings, not because they actually exist.
