The theory of empativity

from the imaginary dictionary of improvised words:

"Empativity"--having that quality of resonance with everyone and everything around one; a sensation that one is part of some universal rush of lives lived. Example: "I feel a great empativity when I walk through airports, tasting small dollops of lives which remain wholly unfamiliar to me, and yet feel so much a part of me".
