Contemplation is profound thinking about something.


the word contemplation is derived from the Latin word contemplatio. Its root is also that of the Latin word templum, a piece of ground consecrated for the taking of auspices, or a building for worship, derived either from Proto-Indo-European base *tem– “to cut”, and so a “place reserved or cut out”,or from the Proto-Indo-European base *temp– “to stretch”, and thus referring to a cleared space in front of an altar.[2] The Latin word contemplatio was used to translate the Greek word θεωρία (theōría).  (Wikipedia)
