Metaphysical meaning of Eutychus (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Eutychus (mbd)
Eutychus, eu'-ty-hus (Gk.)--fortunate.

A young man at Troas. Because of his going to sleep during Paul's talk he fell from an upper-chamber window and was killed, but he was restored to life again by Paul (Acts 20:9).

Meta. The understanding that the youthful energies of the organism can be quickened into new life again even after they appear to be utterly dead, after such a renewal appears to be hopeless. Man is indeed fortunate in having the word of Truth (indicated here by Paul) always at hand, since by the word of Truth he can speak his whole being into newness and fullness of life at will.
