A BASED ETYMOLOGY
A little over a decade ago, the slang term based emerged to refer to a quality of not caring about what others think of you. That meaning comes from the rapper Lil B, who sometimes went by the nickname TheBasedGod. Here, based was reclaimed from an existing colloquialism meaning "addicted to crack cocaine" - that's from the noun freebase, which was a chemical term for the conjugate base form of an amine that was mainly used to refer to cocaine prepared through freebasing. Finally, freebase is just from free (indicating that the compound has no ionic bond) and base (indicating that it has a pH greater than 7). In the present, based has simultaneously been appropriated by online meme communities to serve as an antonym of cringe and by the alt-right to serve as an antonym of woke.

lil is being used because Lillith has been inverted into a night spirit and has a cult around eating babies.lil means pure or white.lith is stone rock.far from 'of the night'.blame the church.they demonised every goddess who had assertive qualities.none more than lillith.also represents humanities unconscious so of course those with inverted subconscious are gonna invert her.they should have checked what the words mean.the entire etymology of her name has been buried and distorted.church sponsored denial feeds peoples brains with bogus linguistics.no wonder the world is sleeping aye.i found this because my last name is Hewitt.crest is owl on a tree stump.that is the lillith legend.u need to know hebrew etc. but akadian she is lilitu;the u is hua aka he and lilit is white stone pure.so became Hewitt witt being white or pure,vit being life.obviously they were being persecuted by the church etc for their name and for holding the true form of Lillith which would be a threat to the church so they changed its spelling while maintaining the correct linguistic/kabbalistic/gematria assignments
