Chapter 2 The Moon

The woman is allowed to do almost no work at all, and is fed by the man, in such a way that the man even chews the food thoroughly and then gives it from his mouth to the woman. She comes out of the house only on his shoulders only in case of an emergency, and in her high pregnancy, when she is close to childbirth. A woman gives birth only twice in her whole lifetime - once during the day and once during the night, but always gives birth to four living children, namely four males during the day and four females during the night. The children can walk immediately, and the males are also immediately accustomed to carry the females. That the children there sometimes die as children is just as natural a thing as on earth. They are inhabited by foreign spirits only when they are a hundred days or more old. – The Moon, Chapter 2, Paragraph 8
