What does the apocalypse even really mean?

When discussing the apocalypse and how one would respond, people always ask the details of the apocalypse; they want to know if it was nuclear, or electronic, or viral, from an asteroid, from space, or just zombies.   I wonder if it really even matters. “End of the civilization” seems obvious to me.

But then I think about it. One man’s end of the world might be radically different from another man’s imagination.   (Which raises a separate question-post. How many would have to die for there to be  an end to society or law? I am guessing only a third, transportation would break down first. )

So let’s go to the neutral source. As of Dec 17, 2010 Wikipedia’s first line for apocalypse said  “An Apocalypse is a disclosure of something hidden from the majority of mankind in an era dominated by falsehood and misconception, i.e. the veil to be lifted.”  And what does that even mean?
