>>Indeed, I am thinking of a word for this.
"That hollow feeling you get in the pit of your stomach when you're doing
something, have done something wrong, and somehow know you can't reverse
I really wish I had a word for that.
Two *possible* words in Tech are "t-adamiyya" or "h-adamismus" -- the
feminine definite article is (a)t- and the masculine is a(h)-, from Adam,
the man who ate the fruit from the wrong tree. It was guilt literally felt
in the pit of his stomach.
For the record, I didn't write any of that; you merely cut off my response
*to* that message...
