When a new concept, series of concepts, or the ensuing discussion of said concepts is so stimulating to the mind that one experiences a climactic mental state akin to the physical state of the orgasm; a mental orgasm. The experience is named for Carl Sagan, as it is through watching or reading his works that this experience is most commonly achieved.
I never knew the universe was so huge. Earth is just, like, a mote of dust, illuminated in a beam of sunlight, floating in the great cosmic ocean. Ooooh, oh man, I think I'm having a Sagasm!

Oh man, so amazing. It okay if I just fall asleep?

(noun) A pun on Reaganomics, this term refers to any would-be economic policy of preeminent scientist-philosopher Carl Sagan. Although not a politician himself, Dr. Sagan's political leanings were informed by scientific knowledge and were extremely liberal, progressive, and compassionate.

Examples of Saganomic policies include, but are not limited to:

1) Nuclear disarmament
2) Legalization of cannabis
3) Environmental conservation
4) Understanding the cosmos
Person 1: I am baffled that we pour so much money into the machinery of war while NASA's budget is always being cut. I believe our survival as a species depends on how well we understand the cosmos.

Person 2: Stay away from me with your Saganomics!

When a right handed person performs a handjob on a partner but only uses his or her left hand, therefore performing a handjob of poor quality.

For the definition of receiving a handjob from an actual left handed person, see abomination.
Person 1: So, did you get anywhere with Suzie last night?

Person 2: Yeah, no, I guess.

Person 1: What do you mean?

Person 2: Well, she gave me a lefty.

Person 1: Ooooh, yikes, I see. Sorry, man. Someday you'll get that manjob.

The moment of epiphany when one finally comprehends a complex scientific, mathematical, or philosophical concept.

The term is a combination of the words "Sagan", the last name of the consummate philosopher-scientist Carl Sagan and "supernova", a stellar explosion so luminous that it can briefly outshine an entire galaxy.

A Saganova is not to be confused with a Sagasm, although the implications of the knowledge gained by the former may lead to the latter.
I just don't understand what you mean when you say going through a wormhole would be like folding through space -- whoa, whoa, whoa, Saganova. Got it.
