What is fateful?

What Does fateful Mean

Aciago has its origin in the Latin aegyptiācus , which can be translated as “fatal day” . This adjective is used to name something unfortunate, unfortunate, ominous or unhappy . For example: "It was an unfortunate comment that generated a great commotion" , "I don't want another unfortunate day that makes me rethink so many things" , "An unfortunate blow knocked him out" .

The unfortunate is usually linked to unhappy or unfortunate events . If a soccer player, when he makes his debut with his new team, scores a goal against and is sent off, it could be said that he had an ill-fated first game. Nobody expects a long-awaited moment, which generates hope and expectations, to end badly.

Sometimes, the notion of unfortunate is used to describe a day or a day that, for different reasons, was disastrous. An accident that leaves dozens of deaths can transform any given Saturday into an unfortunate Saturday. This does not mean, obviously, that all people have directly suffered a misfortune on that date, but that the magnitude of the tragedy makes, at a general level or in the mass media, talk about the unfortunate.
In the media around the world it is frequent to resort to the use of the word that we are analyzing to refer to the most tragic events that have taken place such as the consequences of a plane crash, the deaths and destruction that it has entailed. a tsunami or the number of deaths who have lost their lives in a car accident after a holiday weekend.
However, they also use this term, sometimes, with a certain irony. A clear example of this is when it is used to account for the personal mishaps, without any seriousness, that certain politicians have had and that they use in a propagandistic way so that the citizens can identify with them or feel compassion.
Also within music a word has been created: the unfortunate club of 27. It is a term used to refer to the large number of master singers who died when they were 27 years old: Jim Morrison, Brian Jones, Jimmy Hendrix , Janis Joplin ...
“El aciago demiurgo” , on the other hand, is a book written by the French Emil Mihai Cioran (1911-1995) and translated into Spanish by Fernando Savater . The idea of ​​demiurge belongs to Gnosticism and is linked to an entity that is considered to be the promoter of the universe, but without necessarily being the creator of it. While Platonism associates the demiurge with imperfection, for Gnosticism it is related to evil.
In the same way, there is also another book that takes the term we are analyzing as its title. The work is "Aciago Destino" and has been made by Alfonso Gallego Herrera.
In addition to all the above we have to say that unfortunate is a term that takes on special relevance within the world of the famous “Pokemon” video games. Specifically, in this area there is what is known as Dark Wind, which is a ghostly class move that players can use to cause serious damage to their rivals.
