Sundays in Nature

Our weekly “worship” today was one out of our usual environs and into Eden Park; specifically to the Krohn Conservatory. A Cincinnati icon since its completion in 1933, the Krohn holds a butterfly show  yearly focusing on specimens from a different parts of the globe.  Our group met today to see “Butterflies of the Caribbean“.

Here’s what Emanuel Swedenborg has to say about Butterflies on page 50 of his “Arcana Coelestia”:

BUTTERFLY [papilio].  See Worm, Insect.  A comparison of the conjugial state with the state of butterflies, 2758.  A representation of the state of spirits in the spiritual world, when they are preparing for heaven, derived from the changes of worms into butterflies, which are then in their heaven, 8848.
