"Mahapach!" "Reversal!"

A world turned upside down. 

The Talmud tells a story (Pesachim 50) of Rav Yosef the son of Rabbi Yehoshua ben Levi who became ill and was on the verge of death. He recovered and his father asked him what he saw as he hovered between life and death. “Olam Hafuch Rai’ti,” he said – “an upside down world.” Those who are important and recognized in this world, were low in that world and those who are unimportant in this world are highly regarded there.
