ELKM Consulted the Six Days and Made Adam’s Body
Know your creator, know yourself, and know the difference
1. Consulting the Days
Like a CEO of a modern company that builds humanoids,
who assembles all the experts in the company to contribute
their expertise to the new project,
so did ELHM assemble the Six Days of CREATION and asked
each Day to provide a layer in Adam’s body.
Note how ‘modern’ is Moses’ description of making Adam.
He wrote this at the time when all civilizations around him
told mythical weird stories, by full of sexual perversions
and rivalry between the gods.
Thus, to each Day, ELHM said:
“Let Us Make Adam in Our Form and Our Image.”
Each Day ‘agreed,’ and ELHM consulted it
like a builder consulting his master plan,
and made a layer in Adam accordingly
He consulted the First Day and made Adam.
Hence Adam is made of stuff that stars are made of.
He Consulted the Second Day’s Water,
and made another layer in Adam.
Our body, therefore, constitutes mostly of waters.
He Consulted the Third Day’s Vegetation,
and made another layer in Adam.
Hence many parts of our body, such as the structure of each cell,
its DNA and RNA, and the photosynthesis performed in our eyes,
and our blood vessels that brunch out like trees,
are all fingerprints of the Third Days’ Vegetation.
He Consulted the Fourth Day’s Luminaries
and made another layer in Adam, accordingly.
By this, ELHM planted in Adam a biologic clock,
that appreciates days from nights, without which
our nervous system wouldn’t function.
He Consulted the Fifth Days’ fish, birds and crocodiles
and made other layers in Adam.
He Consulted the Sixth Days’ Cattle, Beasts and Crawling creatures
and made other layers in Ada
Adam, therefore, is the summary of everything created before him.
2. Is Moses’ Story Supported by History?
You can see the story being played out
in the way the human embryo develops
in the mother’s womb.
We all start as a single cell, that divides and grows
into multi-cellular ball, then evolves into phases that
resemble Vegetation, Fish, Bird, Lizard and so on.
The scientists say:
The Onto-genesis repeats the Phyllo-genesis.
It means that each person repeats, in his mother’s uterus,
the entire Evolution, proving that ELHM consulted the
Six Days and made Adam accordingly.
ELHM has given us these gifts, so that we would identify
with nature and be a part of it. He has also planted in us
the ability to be fascinated by nature, enjoy its beauty,
adore the wisdom inherent in it, so that we would happily
engage ourselves with it AND RULE OVER IT.
A ruler, a king, says the Torah, should be elected from
among his subjects. A king can’t be an alien.
By making Adam from the Six Days, Adam is an
eligible ruler over his habitat.
As precious as these gifts are, yet they have served
as a major source of IDOILATRY. History shows that
Adam has been so fascinated by nature, that
he was always drown into worshipping its items.
In fact, Moses predicts here the entire journey of IDOLATRY
In history. Let’s see how.
The Predicted Course of IDOLATRY
As it turns out, Moses predicts here the path
that IDOLATRY would take in history. Let’s see How.
“Adam, where are you?”
Hassidic tale says that In Eden, after their sin,
Adam and his wife hid in shame in the bush,
while G-d called them: “Adam! Where are you?“ (Genesis 3:9)
Here on Earth, the reverse is true:
ELHM is in the hide, still calling Adam “Where are you? Come to me!”
Now Adam is the one who keeps looking for the CREATOR!
Thus, Adam, living in the Sixth Day of CREATION,
hears G-d’s calling him, and he looks for ELHM,
first of all, in the creatures of nature around him, close to him,
that were made with him on the Sixth Day, such as
cattle, beast and “crawling snakes.”
And at first, these creatures of the Sixth Day seem to Adam
so powerful, so magical, so fascinating, that he is tempted
to think they are the CREATOR whom he is looking for,
and he falls into the trap of worshipping them,
instead of the true ELHM.
Is this prediction true?
We can say that indeed, back in history, Mankind worshipped
holy cow, as the Egyptians did,
mighty beasts, as all ancient civilizations did,
even worship snakes and dragons as the Greeks and Chinese did,
even worshipped Flies, as the Philistines did.
Thus, the story continues:
As Adam becomes wiser, he realizes that those creatures
are not so powerful as he had thought. Yet, because he is still
hearing G-d calling him: “Adam, where are you? Come to me!”
Adam searches now the CREATOR deeper in Nature, in creatures
made on the Fifth Day.
Adam is now so impressed by the Fish, Birds and Crocodiles,
made on the Fifth Day, that he adores them and worships them
– thinking that they are his CREATOR!
It is as if the very consultation with ELHM to make Adam,
rendered the Fifth Day’s creatures a magical power in Adam’s eyes.
Has this prediction of the Torah happen?
Indeed, the ancient Egyptians worshipped gods with faces of
fish, birds, and crocodiles; as did other ancient civilizations
of that time.
The story continues:
As Man becomes wiser, he realizes that that those creatures
of the Fifth Day, are not so powerful as he had thought, and he
looks for the CREATOR deeper in nature – in creatures made
on the Fourth Day.
Adam seeks the hidden CREATOR in the Luminaries,
the Sun, Moon and Stars, and they seemed to him
so powerful, so mysterious, so gorgeous that he is tempted
to think they are the CREATOR.
Has this prediction materialized?
Of course – the Babylonians worshipped the celestial bodies,
even developed Astrology, believing in the star’s power to control our fate .
But as Man gets smarter, he discovers the fallacy of those celestial idols,
and he looks for the CREATOR deeper in Nature,
in creatures made on the Third day, like the Vegetation,
worshipping magnificent Trees and Mountains, and even Fertility itself.
Indeed, that is what the Canaanites did,
Worshipping gods of fertility – the Baal and Ashtoreth,
and practiced sacred prostitution.
Other nations looked for the CREATOR even deeper in Nature,
in the Waters that covered Earth on the Second Day,
and they worship the Sea, as the Greeks and other nations did.
And nowadays, still hearing the CREATOR calling us
Adam, where are you? Come to me!
Mankind is looking for Him deeper in Nature,
in the most primordial elements of CREATION,
like in the Big Bang, in Quantum physics and other mysteries
of the First Day, thinking our origin lies there.
But soon, let’s pray and hope, Mankind would get smarter
and recognize that the true CREATOR is not found in the
world but rather that He is the One Who has created everything
and He is the One who placed us on that Planet for a purpose.
With who else did ELHM consult to make Adam?
