I love how people from different fields invented their own word for "the process of starting a system with external intervention because it cannot support itself at this point".

In ordinary language it's called kickstart, in cars and vehicles it's called jumpstart, in computing it's called bootstrap.

And just learned a new one: blackstart - power plants themselves need power to run. But after a total blackout, there's no power to start, which requires some interventions.
