Citat ur en rikti bok

Star-worship began at a very early date in Babylon; the idea of a correspondence between the heaven above and man beneath suggested that the planets, which move in fixed paths, determine men´s actions, for man the microcosm is a counterpart of the marcrocosm, and his soul but a spark of the fire which glows in the stars. Hence arose the terrible Babylonian idea of the Fate which rules alike stars and gods and men.


...it began an evil career which did not end even with Copernicus and Newton.
