435. X. THAT THE SPHERE OF SCORTATORY LOVE ASCENDS FROM HELL, AND THAT THE SPHERE OF CONJUGIAL LOVE DESCENDS FROM HEAVEN. That the sphere of conjugial love descends from heaven was shown in the passages cited just above (no. 434); and that the sphere of scortatory love ascends from hell is because that love is from hell (no. 429). The latter sphere ascends from the unclean things into which are turned the delights of adultery of those who are there--and they are of both sexes. As to this, see above (nos. 430, 431).
