Stone Age Numinosity
         Numen is a Latin word, deriving from the verb
           nuere, meaning "to nod." It's original meaning
           was "a nod." It came to "divine will or divine 
           power of the gods" from the Greek and Roman
           practice of going to the temple to consult the 
           will of the gods. In the temple, the supplicant
           stood before a statue of the god, ask the god for 
           guidance and then watch the statue. If the statue                          seemed to nod, the believer knew which path to 
Current Numinosity
