Embobbyment is a whimsical yet profound term that encapsulates the act of living and embodying the ideas and vision of Bobby Azarian, particularly those related to his book "Romance of Reality" and his concept of "Neuromantics," from his novel Road to Omega.

"Embodiment" refers to the tangible or visible form of an idea, quality, or feeling,
Neuromantics to Embobbyment:
The term "Neuromantics" refers to a group of individuals who are self-assembling and strategizing to bring Road to Omega to life. Embobbyment takes this a step further by emphasizing not just the intellectual engagement with Bobby's ideas but also their lived experience. It's about making the Neuromantic vision a part of one's very being.
Sarah found herself deeply influenced by Bobby's book and decided to join the Neuromantics. Over time, her actions and thoughts began to align so closely with the group's ideals that her friends couldn't help but notice her Embobbyment.
In Science and Philosophy:
In the context of thermodynamics and the universe's evolution towards complexity, Embobbyment serves as a human-scale example of the universe's tendency to self-organize. Those who practice Embobbyment are like microcosms of the universe's macrocosmic journey towards greater awareness and complexity.
In Popular Culture:
While the term is closely tied to Bobby Azarian and his work, it will be adopted more broadly to describe the act of deeply embodying any postive visionary's ideals, thereby becoming a living tribute to their work.
