Chapter 1 The Moon

But so that you can fully understand the moon and it's habitability, you must know that the moon is actually moon only on the side facing the planet; On the opposite side, however, it is not a moon, but a completely solid part of the earth, so what is the moon is not solid, but very loose, almost like a somewhat solid foam of the sea, whose firmer parts protrude like mountains, but the softer parts are sunken like niches and funnels toward the center of the whole world-body, in some of which there is atmospheric air that cannot yet escape, which, viewed through a strong telescope, looks almost as if it were water; All high points, as well as the less deep funnels have absolutely no atmospheric air, but only ether, as it is found in the free spaces between the sun and the planets. This side of the moon is therefore also inhabited by no organic being, but it's inhabitants are of a spiritual kind; these spiritual inhabitants were in the life of the body all world-addicts, and are now banished there for improvement, so that they can in this way still sufficiently fill themselves with the world; and when they then realize after considerable lengths of time that the worldly affair bears no fruit, and they lend an ear to the teachers sent there, then those who are willing to do so are immediately led from there to a higher, more blissful level of freedom; those who are less obedient, however, are again clothed with bodies on the earth of the moon, and there they have to get by very poorly and miserably; For now they have to struggle with the greatest cold and darkness; on the other hand, they also have to contend with an unbearable heat, for the night lasts almost 14 full earth days and the day, just as long; towards the end of each night, it becomes as cold there as on the earth at the north pole, and around the middle and towards the end of the day, it becomes so hot that no living being can endure it on the surface. – The Moon, Chapter 1, Paragraph 9
