Annotation

While the novel is mostly romance and spiritualism, it includes a tour of the solar system. Earth is the only planet where people doubt God. On Saturn people can talk with spirits, sickness and old age do not exist, and death is simply going to sleep. Venus is one great garden, and everyone is inspired by Nature and Art. Jupiter is an electrical civilization with everything done by electricity and part of the book is about Christ as an electrical being. "The Electric Creed" is on pages 229-44.
