Guadeloupe
had been evacuated and that one peasant had refused to leave, knew wanted to go talk to him and find out what kind of relationship towards death he had" (Cronin). Herzog explores the deserted streets of the towns on the island. The crew of three treks up to the caldera , where clouds of sulfurous steam and smoke shift drift like "harbingers of death" (Peucker), an example of the sublime Herzog seeks to conjure in his films

International Standard Book Number (identifier)
The INTERNATIONAL STANDARD BOOK NUMBER (ISBN) is a unique numeric commercial book identifier. An ISBN is assigned to each edition and variation (except reprintings) of a book. For example, an e-book , a paperback and a hardcover edition of the same book would each have a different ISBN. The ISBN is 13 digits long if assigned on or after 1 January 2007, and 10 digits long if assigned before 2007. The method of assigning an ISBN is nation-based and varies from country to country, often depending on how large the publishing industry is within a country. The initial ISBN configuration of recognition was generated in 1967 based upon the 9-digit STANDARD BOOK NUMBERING (SBN) created in 1966. The 10-digit ISBN format was developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and was published in 1970 as international standard ISO 2108 (the SBN code can be converted to a ten digit ISBN by prefixing it with a zero)

Supervolcano
A SUPERVOLCANO is a volcano which has erupted more than 1015 kg (1012 t) of ejecta . This corresponds to larger eruptions of Volcanic Explosivity Index (VEI) 7, and all eruptions of VEI-8 and higher, or around 500 km3 or more of ejecta. A supervolcanic eruption may be a single short-term event, or a long-term massive lava flow lasting up to millions of years. Supervolcanoes occur when magma in the mantle rises into the crust but is unable to break through it and pressure builds in a large and growing magma pool until the crust is unable to contain the pressure

Insanity
may manifest as violations of societal norms , including a person becoming a danger to themselves or others, though not all such acts are considered insanity; likewise, not all acts showing indifference toward societal norms are acts of insanity. In modern usage, insanity is most commonly encountered as an informal unscientific term denoting mental instability, or in the narrow legal context of the insanity defense . In the medical profession the term is now avoided in favor of diagnoses of specific psychiatric diseases ; the presence of delusions or hallucinations is broadly referred to as psychosis . When discussing psychiatric illness in general terms, "psychopathology " is considered a preferred descriptor

Capturing Reality
REALITY is the state of things as they actually exist , as opposed to an idealistic or notional idea of them. Reality includes everything that is and has been , whether or not it is observable or comprehensible . A still broader definition includes that which has existed, exists, or will exist. Philosophers , mathematicians , and other ancient and modern thinkers, such as Aristotle , Plato , Frege , Wittgenstein , and Russell , have made a distinction between thought corresponding to reality, coherent abstractions (thoughts of things that are imaginable but not real), and that which cannot even be rationally thought. By contrast, existence is often restricted solely to that which has physical existence or has a direct basis in it in the way that thoughts do in the brain. Reality is often contrasted with what is imaginary, illusory , delusional , (only) in the mind , dreams , what is false , what is fictional , or what is abstract

Egocentrism
EGOCENTRISM is the inability to differentiate between self and other. More specifically, it is the inability to untangle subjective schemas from objective reality; an inability to understand or assume any perspective other than their own. Although egocentrism and narcissism appear similar, they are not the same. A person who is egocentric believes they are the center of attention, like a narcissist, but does not receive gratification by one's own admiration. Both egotists and narcissists are people whose egos are greatly influenced by the approval of others, while for egocentrists this may or may not be true. Although egocentric behaviors are less prominent in adulthood, the existence of some forms of egocentrism in adulthood indicates that overcoming egocentrism may be a lifelong development that never achieves completion
