Sophia's "doxa".

Doxa, the classical Greek term which, when roughly translated, referes to opinion. Sample usage:

"Doxai are like *@&$@#$!`; everyone has one, and is trying to screw everyone else's."

or

"Doxai are like rabbits; common to the world, and prone to rapid proliferation."

The concept is defined in contrast to sophia, or "wisdom", within Plato's allegory of the cave, wherein doxa is understood, in metaphorical relation, to be the perception of shadows by the prisoners chained to the bench.
