Wan: the low life-energy that comes from having given energy away, without having it replenished by lingering radiance Known best as a description of the diminishing or waning moon, which thins until it vanishes then begins to wax (grow in intensity), it also applies to the Earth on a seasonal basis and, by connection, to all caught in its rhythm. Wanness is not to be confused with death. Instead, it is a purification that allows minor energies to show themselves where they would otherwise be hidden.
