106. II. THE EXTERNAL OF MAN'S THOUGHT IS IN ITSELF OF THE SAME NATURE AS ITS INTERNAL. It has been shown above that man from head to foot is of the same character as his life's love. Here, therefore, something will be said about the life's love of man; for until this has been done nothing can be said concerning the affections which together with their perceptions constitute the internal of man, and concerning the delights of the affections which together with their thoughts constitute his external. Loves are manifold; but two of them, heavenly love and infernal love, are like lords and kings. Heavenly love is love to the Lord and towards the neighbour, and infernal love is love of self and of the world. These two kinds of love are opposite to each other, as are heaven and hell, for he who is in the love of self and of the world has goodwill to none but himself, while he who is in love to the Lord and love towards the neighbour has goodwill to all men. These two loves are the life's loves of man, but there is much variety in them. Heavenly love is the life's love of those who are led by the Lord, and infernal love is the life's love of those who are led by the devil.
 Now the life's love of anyone cannot exist without derivations, which are called affections. The derivations of infernal love are affections of evil and falsity, properly called lusts, and the derivations of heavenly love are affections of good and truth, properly called ardent desires. The affections of infernal love, properly called lusts, are as many as there are forms of evil; and the affections of heavenly love, properly called ardent desires, are as many as there are forms of good. Love dwells in its affections as a lord in his domain or as a king in his kingdom. The domain and sovereignty of these loves is over the things of the mind, that is, over the things of man's will and understanding, and consequently over the things of the body. The life's love of man, by means of its affections and their consequent perceptions, and by means of its delights and their consequent thoughts, rules the entire man - the internal of his mind by means of affections and their consequent perceptions, and the external of his mind by means of the delights of the affections and their consequent thoughts.
