Meta. A state of consciousness in which there is great activity during the cutting off, by denial, of impure thoughts and desires; also a sense of desolation, or emptiness, that comes over one when one has been very vigorous in the denial and putting away of some error that was strongly rooted in the consciousness, and has not as yet established positive Truth in its place.
