320. Still, the notion that the human being is a microcosm or little universe-because regarded in terms of its uses, the created universe is, in an image, a human entity-is not something that can enter anyone's thinking and consequent knowledge from an idea of the universe as it is viewed in the spiritual world. Neither can it be attested, therefore, except by an angel who lives in the spiritual world, or by one to whom it has been granted to be in that world and to see the phenomena that exist there. Because this has been granted to me, I can reveal this secret from the phenomena I have seen in that world.
