4. Ambedo ((n.) a kind of melancholic trance in which you become completely absorbed in vivid sensory details—raindrops skittering down a window, tall trees leaning in the wind, clouds of cream swirling in your coffee—which leads to a dawning awareness of the haunting fragility of life.)

Here is my take:
During his flight, he felt a sense of ambedo as he looked at the cloud on the port side.
The switch had been made so subtly, the lure to dazzle him with such a voracious appetite had made him careless.
He wasn’t the first man in an eminent position to be seen as an easy target, one who had been led to misbehave at a private party.
It wasn’t so hard to believe that the tide would turn so quickly, all due to a simple video clip on his Blackberry causing his world to crumble as it went viral.
