He refers to life on three planets in particular: (1) Amornrakoyan, (2) Buppaviteha, and (3) Auttrarakuru.
1. The first has a continent (dipa, literally "island" or light/lamp) and an ocean (apparently a "sea" of space). The dominant life form there is human-like. But the beings there have faces that look like the moon. They are [on average] 10 feet (300 cm) tall, and their lifespan is 500 years. [But 500 may simply mean "many."]
2. The second has a continent [major planet] and about 400 smaller continents or isles [or habitable satellites or asteroids]. The beings there are human-like, but their faces look like cups. They are 15 feet (450 cm) tall and their lifespan is 700 years.
3. The third are flatlands with human-like life forms with faces that look more cubical. They are 21 feet (650 cm) tall, and their lifespan is 1,000 years.
Modern readers may not be able to believe this ancient cosmography and cosmology. Who can say what is real without meditating and developing the faculties to see for oneself?
- Moon: a reflection of self (ethics).
- Cup: the self as a vessel of knowledge (discourses).
- Cube: a physical record or knowledge (knowledge books).
