112. Spirits and angels know that there are inhabitants on the moon too, and equally on the moons or satellites around the planets Jupiter and Saturn. Those who have not seen spirits from there and talked with them are still in no doubt that there are people on these moons, because they are just as much worlds; and where there is a world, man is to be found. Man is the purpose for which a world exists, and the supreme Creator made nothing without a purpose. Anyone whose reason is at all enlightened can be sure that the purpose of creation is the human race, so that heaven can be formed from it.
