That's... strange? I honestly can't explain how weird this is? Or how to progress, because this is my basic understanding of a whole concept up against what seems to be yours?

It's... bizarre?

I have heard it used in those contexts, so I've really got nothing. Is it a generational or regional thing? That seems, strange. But I don't know what else it could be? Normally I would assume I'm just the weird one, because I am about a lot of linguistic things, but uh- I've seen this so much, from other people, that it can't be.

I've, really got nothing, other than that it's still worthless as a callout since different people think it means different things.

For what it's worth, I ran a little thought experiment with a friend of mine, who hasn't played Destiny, that went something like this, if you'll excuse the IM formatting:

"Hypothetical question:
You start in space
You then travel to a gigantic space catfish, large enough to devour planets
And enter the palace built atop it
You navigate through the palace, and come to a massive set of doors
Past them, which close behind you, is a lavish, opulent throne room, built as a dome
A very porculent space rhino greets you
He claps his hands, and you find yourself transported to a strange new realm
Eerie and disjointed and kind of purple tinted
A large stone path extends forward, towards a giant spectral space rhino head floating in the void
The void is on all sides of the path, even below, seemingly carrying on forever
You find a glowing orb
It takes you back to the throne room
The porculent space rhino waves you off, and you are escorted to the other side of the massive doors
You then hear a voice, fraught with concern and panic
It seems to be coming from somewhere else, but you can't place it, as it echoes around
But it's saying "Help! I'm inside!"
So the question is,
Where do you think it's coming from, the throne room or the void?"

Obviously hardly scientific, and with a sample size of one, but they actually said the void. And without prompting explained, quote, "You're in the void, in = inside", so uh.

That's a thing?
