Slang

  • plural noun feelings, ambience, atmosphere, mood. A key term and concept in the hippy psychic repertoire, vibes denotes the unseen and unheard, but nonetheless experienced vibrations linking individuals with each other and with the cosmos. The word originated among jazz devotees and beatniks and survives in the post-hippy era in limited and usually facetious usage.
