numina

There are no longer any gods whom we can invoke to help us.The great religions of the world suffer from increasing anemia, because the helpful numina have fled from woods, rivers, and mountains, and from animals, and the god-men have disappeared underground into the unconsciousness. There we fool ourselves that they lead an ignominious existence amongst the relics of our past.
