osmose \oz-MOHS\, verb:
1. To gradually or unconsciously assimilate some principle or object.
2. To undergo osmosis.
Osmose comes from the biological term osmosis, "the tendency of a fluid, usually water, to pass through a semipermeable membrane into a solution where the solvent concentration is higher, thus equalizing the concentrations of materials on either side of the membrane." Osmosis derives from endosmose, with endo- being French for "inward" and osmos meaning "push, thrust" in Greek.
