vanishing point
The situation in which, place where, or point in time when some object or phenomenon is no longer observable or notable

vanishing point
In graphical perspective, a point in the picture plane π that is the intersection of the projections (or drawings) of a set of parallel lines in space on to the picture plane
vanishing mediator
(Felsefe) A vanishing mediator is a concept that exists to mediate between two opposing ideas, as a transition occurs between them. At the point where one idea has been replaced by the other, and the concept is no longer required, the mediator vanishes. In terms of Hegelian dialectics, the conflict between thesis and antithesis is resolved by a synthesis of the two ideas, although the synthesis represents the final solution, whereupon the mediator vanishes
