    Here's what I know.

    1. It's a word in classical, not modern Greek.
    2. It means "destruction of the universe specifically by fire."
    3. It's NOT cataclysm, apolocapyse, holocaust, eschatology, catastrophe, etc.
    4. It's associated with STOIC philosophy (I think) or with William Blake (somehow).

    Thanks in advance :)
