Factoid: Kal-toh is a complex Vulcan game that is to human chess as chess is to tic-tac-toe. T'an s'at is the Vulcans' intellectual deconstruction of emotional patterns. In Vulcan terms, Shon-ha'lock -- The Engulfment -- is the most intense and psychologically perilous form of eros; humans call it "love at first sight." The soo-lak is a third party who, by his lack of interest, trivializes one's own. The k'oh-nar is the feeling of being completely exposed.
