This just in from D. B.:
Apropos of fairly recent usage of the word 'sublunary' on the MavPhil blog, and the entry on sexbots, I offer you C.S. Lewis' take on both in this paragraph from That Hideous Strength. "On this side (of the moon, facing the earth - DB), the womb is barren
and the marriages are cold. There dwell an accursed people, full of pride and lust.
There when a young man takes a maiden in marriage, they do not lie together, but each
lies with a cunningly fashioned image of the other, made to move and to be warm by
devilish arts, for real flesh will not please them, they are so dainty (delicati) in
their dreams of lust. Their real children they fabricate by vile arts in a secret place.”
