Samadhi
Deep meditation and contemplation where rational thought and sense of self, as well as consciousness of the external world, disappears; striving for enlightenment through intense one-pointed focus.

Samadhi is very popular throughout the Negentropy Alliance and Sophic League. Although samadhi can be attained naturally through long discipline, and indeed purists argue that this is the only true samadhi, for most sophont beings samadhi is attained through the help of specific bio-, nano- cyber- and wetware. For many individuals who practice enthusiastically, samadhi can be more addictive than any drug.
