AN 3.80 Culanika sutta

I was reading this sutta and this verse in particular…

It’s almost as if the Buddha is saying that all the other worlds out there are copies of our planet? Because if there are ‘a thousand Indias’ then there are probably a thousand Australias, USAs, Phillippines, Vietnam Englands etc. etc. why not right?

What is your impression of this?

Umm … Rhetorical amplification?

Its simply a stylistic tool, not meant to be taken literally.
