104 Affectional Alchemy.
LXIX. He who is diseased or unsound, pelvically, is not a true
man while thus; that his soul is barred out from the heavens
whither all souls repair during sound sleep, and that his immortality
is not certain till he does become sound. Woman everywhere is
subject to the same law and penalty.
LXX. We hold that any over-passional, inconsiderate male human
is no man, and that such a husband must necessarily destroy the
best wife ever given by God to the son of man ; and
LXXI. An over-passional woman can easily destroy and rain any
