Developed by the psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, this term represents a state in which one is engaged in a goal-regulated, meaningful activity and is so completely absorbed in the process that one loses all sense of time. Flow is considered a positive, productive, and desirable state.^ to top
Theorized by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, "flow" is a "condition where self-consciousness disappears, perceptions of time become distorted, and concentration becomes so intense that the game or task at hand copletely absorbs us" (Douglas and Hargadon 204). A mental state of enjoyment shared by people in a variety of activities, e.g., rock-climbing, chess-playing, and composing music (Juu; 139).
The Flow of the First Force, from which all life originates, and to which everything returns upon death. "On the moment when the First Force was first released, the Flow began, and from that moment onwards, all life that came to be in this world was attached to it." - Darenaion
