Greek. The word chaos comes to us from the word Khaos. The concept behind Khaos is a nothingness, a vast void, shapeless and without form or understandable substance .... like… outer space or a topsy-turvy black hole of sorts. In ancient Greek thought this "void" was the origin of all things. It was a place or state of being from which all things emerged, in which all things had existed prior to becoming separate and distinct things, a place or state of being where everything was shapeless and indistinct, matter and space and time all without definition. Furthermore, the Earth (Gaia) sprung (or was born) from the void (Khaos); as did Eros and Tartarus. The Earth (Gaia) then gave birth to Uranos (sky or heavens). Earth and Sky (Gaia and Uranos) were the progenitors of the Titans, who in their turn were the progenitors of the Olympian gods. Unlike the modern black hole, which never lets anything go, the Khaos was the source of all in the minds of the ancient Greeks.

Definition of Hospital Hospital: It may seem unnecessary to define a "hospital" since everyone knows the nature of a hospital. A hospital began as a charitable in…stitution for the needy, aged, infirm, or young. The word "hospital" comes from the Latin "hospes" which refers to either a visitor or the host who receives the visitor. From "hospes" came the Latin "hospitalia", an apartment for strangers or guests, and the medieval Latin "hospitale" and the Old French "hospital." It crossed the Channel in the 14th century and in England began a shift in the 15th century to mean a home for the elderly or infirm or a home for the down-and-out. "Hospital" only took on its modern meaning as "an institution where sick or injured are given medical or surgical care" in the 16th century. Other terms related to hospital include hospice, hospitality, hospitable, host, hostel and hotel. The Hotel-Dieu, a name often given to a hospital in France during the Middle Ages, is the hotel (of) God.
