Kairos - Time out of Time

It is used in this meaning in both ancient and modern Greek. - 2. a particular moment in time, which may be the ideal moment of opportunity or for fulfilling a particular quest or need. It is not temporal time, which is referred to by the word "Chronos". It refers to a more philosophical meaning of time and timing, closer to how the word "clmate" may be used in a non-weather way - as in a place having a good business climate.
