In the middle of all sits the Sun, enthroned. In this most beautiful temple. Could we place this luminary in any better position from which he can illuminate the whole at once? He is rightly called the Lamp, the Mind, the Ruler of the Universe. Hermes Trismegistus names him the Visible God, Sophocles’ Electra calls him the All-Seeing. So the sun sits as on a royal throne ruling his children, the planets which circle round him.
