106. There are two kinds of people on the planet Venus, who are of opposite characters. Some are gentle and humane, some are fierce and almost like wild animals. Those who are gentle and humane are to be seen on the other side of their world; those who are fierce and almost like wild animals on the side facing us. It must be appreciated that this appearance is dependent on the way they live, because it is this which causes all apparent space and distance in that world.
