387. 2. These two universal atmospheres ally themselves with an atmosphere of conjugial love and with an atmosphere of love for little children. It is apparent that an atmosphere of conjugial love is allied with the atmosphere of procreating; for procreation is the end, and conjugial love the intermediate cause by which it is effected; and in producing effects and in the effects produced, the end and the cause are united because they work together. It is also apparent that an atmosphere of love for little children is allied with the atmosphere of protecting what has been procreated, because this is an end arising from the previous end, which was procreation, and a love of little children is its intermediate cause, by which it is effected. For ends progress in series, one after another, and as they progress the last end in one series becomes the first end in the next, and so on, until they reach their goal, in which they stop or terminate. But on this subject, more will be seen in the explanation of heading 12.
