Glossary of Terms

Pia Mezza

Literally the middle place, or the place between. Pia Mezza is a term Babalon uses to describe the affect that the Liminal Gateway, the ingress of Spirit, has upon the senses of those in its presence. The witnesses often feel as though they are swimming through their sensations, with sight in particular becoming unusual in a myriad of different ways. The senses become heightened and on edge, much like one who is sneaking through a dark woods, alone at night. This state has nothing to do with the use of drugs or chemicals, nor can it be achieved by the employment of such substances. Pronounced Pee-ah Mehz-ah.
