What does the word tellus mean? In the research sites we see the word "Earth" as meaning, but there is an article that cites the Latin word as "sense of the way of man".
Tellūs, tellūris is a rather poetic word meaning "earth", both in the sense of "soil" and in the sense of "the globe". Sometimes it's used like the Greek Gaea to mean a personification of the Earth. I've never heard of it meaning a "sense of the way of man".
