Volcanoes, but not mountains, became fetishes; comets, but not stars.  Many comets are unestablished wild offspring of the solar mother wheels, which are being gradually brought under control of the central governing sun.  The meteors and other small particles of matter circulating and evolving in space constitute an enormous aggregate of energy and material substance.  Even some of the comets consist of meteor swarms, but as a rule they are disrupted smaller bodies of matter. 
A comet’s tail points away from the attracting body or sun because of the electrical reaction of its highly expanded gases and because of the actual pressure of light and other energies emanating from the sun.
