 About Jakob Lorber 
 Jakob Lorber was born on July 22, 1800, on the left bank of the River Drau amidst vineyards, in theVillage of Kanischa and parish of Jahring, where his father, Michael Lorber, labored on a small farm. It was not mere coincidence that Jakob Lorber grew up in an impoverished rural environment,though in a home open to art and religion. He inherited from his father his many-sided musical talents,receiving instruction on the violin, piano, and organ. By the time he attended the gymnasium (high school) in Marburg, Lorber had earned the necessarytuition money as an organist at one of the local churches. He received his accreditation as a high school teacher in 1829, in Graz, Austria, capital of the province of Steiermark. At that time, however, he could not find appropriate employment. This prompted him to continue his musical studies, which consisted of composing, teaching the violin, providing singing lesson, and giving an occasional concert. During these years, Jakob Lorber followed his inclination and immersed himself more deeply in the spiritual “Path to the Innermost.He read, among others, the writings of Justinus Kerner, Jung-Stilling, Swedenborg, Jakob Böhme, and Johann Tennhardt. The Bible, however, was his constant companion and remained his principal source of inspiration until the end of his life. Despite his many abilities, he lived from hand to mouth, until he was finally offered a position asconductor of the Opera in Trieste. It was just as he was about to accept this position that he received hisappointment as “God’s scribe.” On March 15, 1840, right after early morning prayer, he heard a voicein his heart which very clearly ordered him: “Get up, take your pen and write!” He abandoned all travel preparations, and obediently sat down to write what the mysterious voicedictated. It proved to be the introduction to his first work, The Household of God (Die Haushaltung Gottes): “And thus the good Lord speaks to everyone; and this is true, faithful, and certain. Whosoever wishes to speak to Me should come to Me, and I will place the answer in his heart. But only the pure,whose hearts are full of humility, will hear the sound of My voice. And whosoever prefers Me to all things and to the world, and loves Me like a bride loves her groom, with such a person I will walk armin arm. Such a human being will for all times look upon Me as one brother would look upon another,which is how I have looked upon him from eternity, before he existed.” From the hour of this first dictation by the Lord, the unexpected and unheard powerfully entered  Jakob Lorber’s life. During the twenty-four years that followed, he wrote almost daily for many hourswithout interruption, neither consulting any books of reference nor otherwise having any prior experience of the voluminous knowledge which flowed from his pen through the Inner Word. His life was fulfilled solely in obedience to this Inner Voice.One would have to speak entirely in superlatives in order to capture the essence of Jakob Lorber. If we consider him as a literary man, then he surpasses all other authors, poets, and thinkers throughout history. Where else can one find such comprehensive wisdom B interpretations of such depths, or suchaccurate knowledge of geography, history, biology and natural science, even unto the creation of thecosmos? His major works fill twenty-five volumes of 500 pages each, not counting his other smaller volumes. And if we consider him as a mystical genius, he surpasses all other initiates of whom we haveknowledge. No words can encompass him; and if he called himself “God’s scribe,” that was only hisown humble self-assessment. Jakob Lorber died on August 24, 1864. His mission was accomplished, and he had foreseen his owndeath. On his tombstone at St. Leonhard Cemetery in Graz, the apostle Paul’s words are written:“Whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord’s.”
 
Foreword 
More than a century has passed since 1847, when Jakob Lorber recorded the present work throughthe Inner Voice û a period of time when science and technology took unexpectedly gigantic steps.During Lorber’s lifetime, mankind lived in the age of steam; the industrial age followed with itselectrification and motorization, which ushered in the atomic age. Its power can either bless or annihilatemankind.The great discoveries and inventions of the past few decades have also been useful in theexploration of our heavenly body, the Earth, and all her natural phenomena. Geology, geophysics,meteorology, and many other branches of science are continuously at work in the attempt to draw amore exact picture of those natural forces of our planet that are active above, below, within, and uponher. Much of our new knowledge corresponds, to a great degree, with the statements made by Lorber inthis work, Earth and Moon, and in his other naturo-spiritual writings, and affords incontestable proof of the veracity of statements which, before science corroborated them, had often been questioned.Despite all the theories about the nature of the inner Earth, her true structure remains, now as before, veiled from the scientific eye by an impenetrable darkness, for there are obstacles in Naturewhich will forever prevent mundane humanity from penetrating the Earth’s core. A true description of the interior of the Earth, such as the one recorded in the inspired writings of Lorber, can only beapproached from a spiritual point of view.In this book, the Earth reveals herself as a cosmic body which contains nothing dead or inanimate.She is a pulsating, living organism, all of whose organs are precisely analogous to those of the physicalhuman body: an inner world of wonders, where immense elemental powers express a planned andinspired process of development in which all natural occurrences take part.The first part of this volume, “The Natural Earth,” discloses much of the naturo-spiritual purpose behind the material or physical description of our terrestrial globe. The second part, “The SpiritualEarth,” describes the spiritual spheres which belong to the world of this Earth. Although this description begins in the physical world, it becomes a flash of the highest spiritual knowledge.You will, in addition, find in the appendix, i.e. the third part, entitled “The moon” (1841), adescription of the nature of the world of the moon, including the differences between each half of themoon, with the living conditions relevant to each. Considering human plans regarding future travel tothe moon, the statements in this book deserve particular attention, since the recent progress of spaceexploration has already offered evidence for the validity of Lorber’s description of the moon.Lorber’s highly meaningful treatise concludes by pointing out the cosmic and spiritual importanceof this satellite of our Earth, and by teaching us to understand, in a new light, the true place of the Earthand the moon within the encompassing study of Creation. Thus these writings, like all of Lorber’sworks, deepen religious belief to the level of spiritually inspired cognition, revealing the wisdom of God’s love for human beings in a profound manner.

1The center of gravity of the Earth
When you study a body carefully, you will notice three things. Beyond itsgraphic outer appearance – which means, among other things, its form – a body hasits circumference, its surface, and its coloring in accordance with its length, width,and height; and, most importantly, the body has a weight which will allow it to takea certain position.For example, when you study the shape of an irregular stone, you will find itscenter of gravity in a particular part. This may easily be determined with a bulky piece of wood; in the water, its center of gravity will be at the lowest point.The center of gravity should not be confused with the central point. Every bodyhas two center points, one of gravity and another of physical measurement. Whenyou examine bodies of all kinds, the center of gravity will never coincide with thecorporeal center, not even in the instance of a mathematically perfect, properly poured metal ball.For example, break a steel bar into two pieces and, when it is highly magnified,you will notice the uneven crystalline texture at the break. When such a differencecan be noticed in the crystalline structure of one of the most solid of metal bodies, by how much more will such a difference be perceptible to the eye in a less dense body?Anyone can determine this when making a scale. If one were to construct amathematically symmetrical scale beam out of dense metal and balance it in a scalefork, one would be convinced that, even in a mathematically correct construction,the two parts of the scale beam will never form a perfect horizontal plane; rather,one part will be a bit longer than the other.Even in bodies that were formed by My power, the center of gravity and thecentral point by measurement do not coincide, just as is the case with the positiveand negative polarities.Why are both poles on a magnetic bar not located at the mathematical center, but rather at both ends? Why is the husk of the inner seed not in the center, but onlyat the outer part of the seed, while its center point and opposite pole are locatedfarther inwards and outwards from the germ husk? Why is it that a human beingand an animal do not have the heart in the mathematical center of the body?From these questions alone you may deduce that the center of gravity of a bodyis something entirely different from the measured central point.Thus, when we are dealing with something as important as the unveiling of the
