"The great astronomer Kepler, for instance, in seeking to account for the ebb and flow of the ocean tides, depicted the earth as a living monster, the earth animal, whose whalelike mode of breathing occasioned the rise and fall of the ocean in recurring periods of sleeping and waking, dependent on solar time. He even, in his flights of fancy, attributed to the earth animal the possession of a soul having the faculties of memory and imagination."--New Theories in Astronomy (1906) by William Stirling
