Numinous ( pron.: / ˈ n juː m ɨ n ə s / ) is an English adjective, taken from the Latin Numen , and used to describe the power or presence of a divinity . The word was popularised in the early twentieth century by the German theologian Rudolf Otto in his influential book Das Heilige (1917; translated into English as The Idea of the Holy , 1923). According to Otto, the numinous experience has in addition to the tremendum , which is the tendency to invoke fear and trembling, a quality of fascinans , the tendency to attract, fascinate and compel. The numinous experience also has a personal quality, in that the person feels to be in communion with a wholly other .
The title mnemonist (derived from the term mnemonic ) refers to an individual with the ability to remember and recall unusually long lists of data, such as unfamiliar names, lists of numbers, entries in books, etc. Mnemonists always use techniques such as the Method of loci rather than having any superior innate ability to recall or remember. [ edit ] Structure of mnemonic skills While the innateness of mnemonists' skills is debated, the methods that mnemonists use to memorize are well-documented. Many mnemonists have been studied in psychology labs over the last century, and most have been found to use mnemonic devices. Currently, all memory champions at the World Memory Championships have said that they use mnemonic strategies, such as the method of loci , to perform their memory feats.
Logodaedaly , logodaedalus , logodaedalist and logodaedale are related words to be found in the larger dictionaries of the English language. Their origin dates back to the seventeenth century. [ 1 ] They are derived from a combination of the Greek logos (λογος) meaning "word", and daidalos (Δαίδαλος) meaning "cunning worker". The two words combine to give λογοδαίδαλος which means a person cunning in the use of words, rather like the modern expression " wordsmith ". It's not easy to find examples of those words used in earnest. A very few serious-minded Victorian writers used them with varying precision, commonly in theological literature and usually with pejorative overtones, suggesting what in the second half of the twentieth century was described by the dismissive catchphrase "semantic arguments" or "semantic quibbles", though that fashion has largely given way to correct use of the term "semantic" .
