- To fuse or blend together
1861, Various, Atlantic Monthly, Volume 8, No. 48, October, 1861:
- They seem to be so interfused with the emotions of the soul, that they strike upon the heart almost like the living touch of a spirit.
1909, William James, A Pluralistic Universe:
- Novelty, as empirically found, doesn't arrive by jumps and jolts, it leaks in insensibly, for adjacents in experience are always interfused, the smallest real datum being both a coming and a going, and even numerical distinctness being realized effectively only after a concrete interval has passed.
1914, May Sinclair, The Three Sisters:
- It was interfused and tangled with Greatorex's sublimest feelings.
