Immanentize: to bring about to the immanent realm (the realm of man). Essentially, to "make really real."

Eschaton: Speculated to be the peaceful and heavenly state of humankind's future history: a true golden age before the species end.

A cross between Armageddon and "Heaven on Earth"... but, metaphorically, it could simply be viewed as a revolution, or the end of an era.
