Thomas Fuller Quotes - 14 Science Quotes - Dictionary of Science Quotations  and Scientist Quotes

He’s my friend who speaks well of me behind my back.”   —   Thomas Fuller

(Sounds like a friend to me too!  What more could one ask for?  This one was a little difficult to start.  I originally thought the first word was going to be IT’S.  But by the time I made it to the author line I was able to see THOMAS, and that made all the difference.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    The word for this is PRONOIA. From Wikipedia: Pronoia is a neologism coined to describe a state of mind that is the opposite of paranoia. Whereas a person suffering from paranoia feels that persons or entities are conspiring against them, a person experiencing pronoia feels that the world around them conspires to do them good.

    So, I guess that one doesn’t really “suffer” from pronoia. I’m fairly pronoiac! — YUR

    “pronoia” ?

    I think your correspondents just introduced a new controversy about our vocabulary. Apparently, new words go from…

    Protologism: a newly coined word
    Prelogism: a new word in transition to acceptance
    Neologism: a newly recognized and accepted word

    You attract some interesting people, Unc !
