Zen Out or Zenning Out, a deeper form of zoning out. In zoning out, you become absorbed with your own thoughts and inner world, but in Zenning Out you become totally absorbed with the world around you in an almost trance-like state. The world around you looks or feels more real, substantial, and vivid. This can occur after one experiences a trauma, or after someone has purposely chosen to be more aware of their surroundings until the stimuli of the world builds up into a cathartic response within the person. You may also Zen out unexpectedly and it is a very wonderful experience.
At the fairgrouds, I noticed Mallory was staring quietly at the amusement rides, as if lost in thought. I asked her what she was thinking. She said, "The lights, the sounds, it is all so clear and crisp. Even the air smelling of corn dogs and popcorn seems more real."

I said, "Mallory, you're zenning out."

"What's zenning out?"

From STEM, an abbreviation short for "Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics", a STEMlord is a pejorative term for a particular kind of person who has studied in these areas at university or works in these fields who holds a pretentious, condescending attitude to anyone who has studied in any other fields, particularly the Arts and Humanities. They typically believe themselves to be more "intelligent" and "rational", while generally remaining incredibly ignorant outside of their areas of expertise and having the charisma of a rotting pig's backside.
"Ugh, I wish Reddit wasn't full of STEMlords the entire goddamn time."
