Vocabulary

What is your new vocabulary word for the day?

I just learned the word reification:  making something real, bringing something into being, making something concrete.

I am reading text that goes along with a translation of the buddhist book The Tibetan Book of the Dead in which the guy is trying to convince me that there has to be something beyond death because nothing is nothing and therefore must be something...or something like that...  😑  He threw in reification to give another twist, I think.
