Very thorough and thought-provoking. And very timely: I've been seeing the term "liminal space" bandied about with little precision in generative AI and creepypasta circles these days. This post adds some much needed clarity to these often misguided discussions. Thanks!

Thanks, I appreciate it!

Indeed, the term has been used and abused so much that it's often nothing more than a synonym for "weird" or "creepy." Which is unfortunate, as I do think there are some deeper discussions to be had with how liminal the modern world seems to be.
