Macrocosm (the universe) - and microcosm (the human being): their relationship

We will never really know what a human being is as long as we overlook this truth: everything that exists in the universe, from stones and plants right up to the archangels and to God, exists also within humans. This is why the universe is called the macrocosm (big world) and the human being the microcosm (small world). Humans are infinitely small, the universe is infinitely great, but numerous correspondences exist between the infinitely small and the infinitely great. Every organ in our physical body, as well as our psychic and spiritual bodies, has an affinity with a region of the cosmos. Obviously, we shouldn't think of the cosmos as possessing organs like our own, but in essence there is an absolute correspondence between our organs and those of the cosmos. Through the law of affinity, therefore, we can reach centres and forces in space that correspond to certain centres and forces in us, and when this happens we know what it means to take part in cosmic life.
