'鬼' (Mandarin pinyin: guǐ) is the general Chinese term for ghost, used in combination with other symbols to give related meanings such as guilao (鬼佬), literally \"ghost man\", a Cantonese pejorative term for foreigners, and mogwai (魔鬼) meaning \"devil\". Characters such as 魇 (yǎn) meaning \"nightmare\" also carry related meanings.
Hungry Ghosts is a Chinese concept that differs from ghosts in Chinese tradition, it does not relate to Buddhism. Traditional belief is that people become ghosts when they die.It was originally thought that ghosts did not have eternal life, but would slowly weaken and eventually die a second time.Hungry ghosts in traditional thought would only be an issue in exceptional cases such a whole family was killed or when a family no longer appreciated their ancestors. With the rise of popularity in Buddhism the idea that souls would live in space until reincarnation became popular.In the Taoist tradition it is believed hungry ghosts can arise from people whose deaths have been violent or unhappy. Both Buddhism and Taoism share the idea that hungry ghosts can emerge from neglect or desertion of ancestors.
The term nightmare, despite its current use to describe any ominous dream, actually refers to the states known as the waking dream or sleep paralysis, usually associated with rapid eye movement. Through early European history these states were thought to be caused by demons such as the succubi or the hags. Collectively, these female night demons were known as mara or mare and from this was born the word \"nightmare.\"
In more modern culture, when personifying nightmares, artists and story tellers tend to take from the more modern term for mare, which is the given name for a female horse. Thus they are often portrayed as ghostly black horses often with manes of flame or smoke to represent their malevolent nature.

Opening packs and pulling cards can be a nightmare. It doesn't matter how many gems one invests into a single pack, sometimes that one ultra-rare card will elude players. Konami, though, gave their players a crafting system that almost makes up for the gacha nonsense.
There were also spirits known as Kuei-Shen, nature spirits, who might inhabit a tree or live by a stream or preside over a garden. These were eternal spirits who had never been mortal but others, known as guei (or kuei, gui, kui), had once been human beings who had died and passed on to the afterlife. The guei could return to haunt the living for various reasons, and rituals, spells, and religious practices developed to appease them.
She was the queen of the immortal gods and spirits, especially female spirits who lived in the mystical land of Xihua (\"West Flower\"), and goddess of immortality. She is also known as Xiwangmu or Xi-Wang-Mu and lived in a castle of gold in the Kunlun Mountains, surrounded by a moat which was so sensitive that even a hair dropped on the waters would sink. This moat served as protection for her Imperial Peach Orchard where the juices of the fruit of the trees gave immortality. Xiwangmu is shown as a beautiful woman with sharp teeth and a leopard's tail, or as an old, unattractive woman with a hunched back, tiger's teeth and a leopard's tail, depending on her mood. She rewarded her followers with eternal life but punished those who angered her. During the Han Dynasty (202 BCE-220 CE) her cult was very popular and shrines were built for her by the government. She is the wife of Mugong, Lord of the Spirits, who watches over male spirits in the land of Donghua (\"East Flower\") but is sometimes seen as the wife of Shangti.
Menshen, the guardians of the door, known as \"Gods of Peaceful Sleep\" who protect a room, house, or building from evil spirits and ghosts, originated in the early Tang Dynasty (618-901 CE). The emperor Taizong (r. 626-649 CE) was having a hard time sleeping because of nightmares. He consulted a doctor who blamed the bad dreams on evil spirits. Taizong's nightmares were so real he thought people were actually in the room trying to kill him, and so two of his most trusted guards were posted outside the door of his room, one standing on each side. Taizong began to sleep better with the guards outside and so ordered that their images be painted on the doorway. News of Taizong's painted soldiers spread and soon more and more people were painting guardians on their doors and rooms. These images can be seen on many buildings and homes in China and elsewhere. Part of the Chinese New Year celebration is cleaning and re-painting the Menshen on doorways.
These gods and goddesses and many others were worshipped by the Chinese people for centuries. Some developed later than others but all were important to the people. There were many other notable gods who deserve mention: Guan Gong (also known as Guandi), the god of war, who was a great warrior and hero deified after his death; Sun Wukong, the god of mischief, who ate the peaches of immortality and tricked the gods into giving him eternal life; Fu-Shen, the god of happiness; Hou-Ji, god of Millet and grains; Kailushen, \"Spirit Who Clears Roads\", a protector against ghosts and evil spirits; Sheji, god of soil and grain, a harvest fertility god; Wen Chang (also known as Wendi), god of literature who was the patron of scholars and writers and kept accounts of how well writers used their talents in life; and Cheng Huang, \"God of Wall and Moat\" who protected the walls and gates of the cities. Although worship of these gods was outlawed as \"superstition\" when the communist party took control of the Chinese government in 1949 CE, they continued to be worshipped privately by the people and are still honored in many homes all over the world today.
This armor's only proper weakness is explosions. Hyperkinetic Lens logically makes sense to be their worst nightmare if an opponent wields it, but if the user of the armor is flying, it is reasonably ineffective to an extent, depending on how far the user is from the ground. An (untested) alternative is a mining laser set to explode mode, as it causes equally powerful explosive damage for far less cost to make and fire.
Thousands of years ago, the five Creatures Monarchs were the rulers of the Five Civilizations. King Infernus the Immolator ruled over the proud warriors of the Fire Civilization, King Tritonus ruled over the cyber intellectuals of the Water Civilization, King Almighty Colossus ruled over the beastly tribes of the Nature Civilization, Queen Kalima of the Infinite Dark ruled over the living nightmares of the Darkness Civilization, and Queen Eternal Haven, Angelic Liege ruled over the mysterious sky dwellers of the Light Civilization.
As the Living Force and Cosmic Force existed in tandem, it became possible for one to retain consciousness and physically manifest themselves after death. Jinn was considered worthy of the knowledge of eternal life and secretly began his training to unlock its mysteries fully. He also learned from a Shaman of the Whills that achieving eternal consciousness required absolute selflessness.
Yoda completed the trials and was deemed worthy of learning the secret of eternal consciousness, as Yoda would one day train the person who would help Skywalker bring balance to the Force. The Force Priestesses instructed that Jinn would guide Yoda's training. After the end of the Clone Wars and the fall of the Jedi Order, Yoda chose to go into exile on Dagobah, but not before telling Kenobi that Jinn had returned from the netherworld of the Force and could guide his former Padawan in learning the secret. However, Obi-Wan was unable to make contact with Qui-Gon until 9 BBY despite sometimes hearing him as a voice in his head. One time during meditation, he felt himself phase out of reality for a few moments. During this time, he felt Jinn commune through the Force with him, with his old Jedi Master telling him to let go.
During his time on Tatooine, Kenobi continued to speak with Jinn, telling him about the hardships of living in exile and Skywalker's possible destiny of the Chosen One. One morning in 16 BBY, when Skywalker was three, Jinn spoke to Kenobi after he awoke from a nightmare, warning him to get to the boy to protect him. Thus, Kenobi raced to the Lars Homestead, where Luke was being raised by his aunt and uncle, Beru and Owen Lars. Once there, Kenobi helped defend against a gang of bandits, yet Owen demanded he never return after the skirmish.
Existing as a fracture of the Force, he understood that his past existence was best summarized by his name, given that it was who he was during his temporal life. Even after his death and return as a spirit, Jinn was confronted with Jedi thinking only of the future.[source] He guided Yoda through Dagobah to learn the secret of eternal consciousness; but, Yoda was interested in knowing if Jinn, existing outside of normal time, could tell him Darth Sidious's true identity. Although Jinn hinted that he knew the truth, he explained he could only guide Yoda towards greater knowledge, not provide him with the answers.
If all goes according to plan, upon your death your old body will explosively dissolve into flux and you will awaken in a new body with no loss of experience. No threat of eternal oblivion. No reliance on higher powers.

Quickly entering a phrase in the related wiki page would seem like a natural option. Yet too often do I see someone starting word, writing two or three lines and storing the document on an obscure corner of the SharePoint site then slapping it back at you with the eternal \"but it's documented\". I have seen this get to a point where such document are often considered proper bug fix !! 59ce067264
