What does discreation mean?
Discreation is the action or process of totally destroying something or eliminating it completely.
Discreation is very rarely used. Its synonym, annihilation, is much more common.
Example: We don’t just need to reform this unjust system, we need to pursue the complete discreation of it.
Where does discreation come from?
The first records of the verb discreate come from around the 1570s. The first record of its noun form, discreation, comes later, in the 1600s. Discreation was formed within English from a combination of the prefix dis- (indicating reversal or negation) and creation, “the act of creating or making.” So, based on its parts, discreation is the negation of creation.
When discreation is used (which is very rarely), it refers to some kind of destruction or the unmaking of something on a very high conceptual level. It is quite simply the opposite of creation. Instead of making something or bringing something into existence, it is the elimination of something that has been created so that nothing remains. Its synonym, the much more commonly used annihilation, is based on the Latin word nihil, meaning “nothing,” and also implies that something has been reduced to nothingness. Or, as Doc Brown would say, “Erased … from existence.”
