I'm waa-ay behind and have not really followed this thread so maybe I
shouldn't intrude here. But reading the above I thought I'd pass this along
about kenoma (did you try w/omega as in kenwma?). It is in the Greek
dictionaries I looked in, including, LSJ, BADGD, Lampe's Greek Patristic
Lexicon, where the main gloss is empty space/emptiness. However, kenwma in
Lampe for the 3. gloss may interest you most it has:
3. (Gnost.) antithesis of plhrwma, state of privation and unreality. It
cites Iren. Haer. I.4.I (M.7.480A); ib 1.4.2 (484A); Clem.exc.Thdot.31
(p117.11; M.9.676A); Thdt.haer.I.7 (4.298).
If I missed something in previous messages that make what I write moot or
nonsense, my apologies in advance.
PS Tom, being so far behind I tried to send this to you off list but twice
received an "undeliverable -- permanent error" message in return.
