Heaven is an Insectocutor
One of their eyes turned inward, and the other directly up to the zenith because they are completely absorbed in their own speculation and in the study of the stars. Their interests are entirely abstract, and they see nothing of the everyday practical world, ignoring the knowledge of the senses as totally as Jack or the philosopher of A Tale of a Tub.
Paradiso 06, Sandro Botticelli
Beartrice guides Dante successively through the nine spheres, each of which carries a heavenly body which orbits the earth: in succession they include the Moon, Mercury, Venus, Sun, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and Fixed Stars. The voyage culminates in a vision of God in the Empyrean, the realm of pure light.
