Sloth is the visible sign of apathy and indifference, lack of interest and lack of concern, lack of engagement and lack of emotion. Sloth has both passive and active forms. In its passive form accidie results in lethargy, lifelessness and paralysis of the will. It believes in nothing. It cares and lives for nothing. It finds pleasure in nothing, and dislikes nothing. It finds meaning in nothing. It keeps itself alive because there is nothing for which to give its life. In its active forms sloth results in boredom and spiritual restlessness. Without hope, the slothful person makes life troublesome for others. His desires are distorted toward indifference, indifference about suffering of others or being the cause of distress. He lacks care for life in any of its manifestations. He is bored, impoverished and self-absorbed.
