Adam and Eve: Bridging Creation and Evolution through Theosophy

I believe in evolution. It's something a lot of scientists hate hearing because of the world 'believe'. It's fact, it's not something you 'believe in'. Well, believe it or not, I have idealistic tendencies and I sometimes think that people thoughts and the collective of everyone's thoughts is reality, and that people can live in numerous realities during their lifetime. This is the idealistic occult, what some magicians call 'Chaos Magick'. Religion and ideology interest these people and they take on the greater journey of living numerous types of lives in order to find 'fulfillment'. To me, it sounds like the greatest temptation, and in a self-aware kind of way, these people worship Satan, in the form of Baphomet the idol of Pride. Chaos Magicians and Cultural Marxists have much in common in the end, they both think there is no norm and that all is possible and should be explored. I believe they both worship the Devil, and there is no good end to these people. This was a bit of a preface for what I wish to discuss and this is an occult dream I had once concerning Adam and Eve. I bid your patience, ears and open-mind for my beautiful rendition of Biblical Creation and Original Sin.

Theosophy of Creation Through Evolution

Creation according to the Bible

Gen1:26 Then God said, “Let us make humankind in our image, according to our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the wild animals of the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth.”
27 So God created humankind in his image,
    in the image of God he created them;
    male and female he created them.

In this Bible verse, God speaks in his plural form. Some people claim the Hebrews believed God had a wife, Asherah, and hence when he makes humankind, it would make sense that they would create them male and female, for God is with a female consort. However, God is also omnipotent and can create humankind in the way it is complete, male and female together and complete by being together without a consort as well. This is the 'Priestly' version of creation, which stresses a partnership and equality. I believe that this woman is not Eve, as many others do. In the occult, this woman is Lilith, Adam's first wife, and he did not have dominion over her, and she was free to explore her femininity in the garden with no restraints. Lilith ended up straying from Adam, was easily tempted by Satan, and was banished without the corruption of Adam. Adam, however, was punished by God for letting Lilith fall and was smote into the earth. Adam, in Hebrew means 'earth'. 

Adam was revived through the second creation:

Gen2:7 then the Lord God formed man from the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and the man became a living being. And the Lord God planted a garden in Eden, in the east; and there he put the man whom he had formed. Out of the ground the Lord God made to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight and good for food, the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

From the dust and earth, the Lord was ready to revive Adam and he did so and commanded him not to eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. God wanted to Adam to have a partner and helper as well and so created animals, but nothing was good enough and so he created woman.

Gen2: 21 So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept; then he took one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh. 22 And the rib that the Lord God had taken from the man he made into a woman and brought her to the man. 23 Then the man said,
“This at last is bone of my bones
    and flesh of my flesh;
this one shall be called Woman,
    for out of Man this one was taken.”
24 Therefore a man leaves his father and his mother and clings to his wife, and they become one flesh. 25 And the man and his wife were both naked, and were not ashamed.

(Ish) is man and therefore (Isha) is 'from man' as a word meaning woman in Hebrew. 
Gen 2:24 is about mating and healthy sexuality and marriage. In Gen 2:25 I believe Adam and Eve have had sex (binding their marriage) and they probably have a lot of sex in the garden, because sex between a married couple is good.  

 Theosophical Evolution

I've pondered how exactly this translates with the information that we have now concerning evolution. One could say they are different and cannot be combined but I posit these concepts:
Adam and Eve are the first couple to come together and understand the concept of God
God, in this case, is consciousness and by extension, existence itself. He will give humans morality.
Adam and Eve are homo sapiens sapiens who lived in a tribe of hunter gatherers, they live in an undefiled world, they were amoral because their ancestors did not have morality because they were not conscious enough to be able to form a complex understanding of existence. 
Adam and Eve lived an extreme, divine and passionate ground-breaking experience that founds marriage between men and women in an immensely beautiful and divine way. 
Their marriage will lead to greater people being born of them because they will have their intellect in the genetics and will have them as parents. 

As hunter gatherers, humans did not evolve consciously very quickly. They were in hunting tribes, they had gender roles where the men provided and protected and women gathered, micromanaged and looked after the children in a community. I posit, as many do, that socially, there was probably polyamory and homosexuality in these communities, especially among women and women and if there was polyamory it was likely harem-like and rarely with 2 men and 1 woman. The tribes were small, ethnically-sound, and they would likely act in a barbaric kind of way when faced with a moral issue. A person who would kill would be killed, very very likely, or stoned, tortured, etc. 

Adam was a homo sapiens who was likely very intelligent, who was likely a bit of an outcast compared to these others. He was born like some of us are, a genius and it would make sense that another could emerge at a similar time. Eve could have been born also very intelligent but since we know women are often not as intelligent as a very intelligent man, she could have been a bit more naive, but conscious and still more intelligent than the rest of men and of women. Adam and Eve flocked to each other in a divine way, by connecting with something greater than their normal human nature, but to God, the greatness of existence, and the consciousness of being alive. Together, they sat and just lived, breathed and realized how perfect they were for each other. 

The idea that Adam could have had a first wife, a Lilith, is possible in this scenario. If  he was more intelligent than the beautiful Lilith, he could have seen that she was not moral or conscious enough to be with him and she might have sinned and have been outcasted by the tribe and by him. So, Eve could have been his second wife, his 'true' wife, a match made in heaven. 

Adam and Eve were married and likely explored the concept of God together, without saying much, with a raw understanding, a consciousness that was vibrant and alive and founded in this Truth they shared. Eve, as the lesser vessel, was less naive than the other girls, which means that if she did do something wrong, she might have known that it was wrong. Indeed, God told Adam that they could not eat of the fruit, but God did not tell Eve directly. He gave that divine authoritative law to Adam and it was his duty as the stronger vessel, to obey. In Genesis, when Eve was tempted by Satan, he knowledge of this law came through Adam, who told her and enforced the law, but in a way where Eve did not feel too too pressured not to break it. This law is something in the evolution narrative I've found, would be a divine understanding of morality. Morally, Adam known he should not know good or evil and I believe he probably had a difficult time to make Eve understand what that meant, what he understood. Eve does not have the moral understanding because she is a woman and her femininity is more chaotic in nature than man's, in a biological way. Women's hormonal cycles and emotional sensitivities can blind women to the Truth and all it takes is the right tempter to take advantage. When Satan tempted Eve, he did what invaders do: humiliate the man through the rape of his woman. The rape of Eve is the rape of Eden and by evil, Satan takes the key of the world from God and gives is to Adam. Adam receives the key in shame, in an outstretched hand, his wife violated by the lack of his responsibility, his lack of authority. And yet, Adam could have rejected her, like he rejected Lilith, but he loved her, respected her, trusted her. He knew the knowledge she had was poison, but he gave in, despite knowing, because there was no salvation for Eve and he did not want to let her fall without falling himself, from God's authority and grace. 

Adam's temptation is what happens when men give their loyalty to women. When Eve tempted Adam with the gift of Satan, in both cases, Adam had the power to stop his own corruption, but without salvation, he knew that the tribe would curse her if he would not accept. His love for her in a sense caused him to accept that they would both fall, and it was in a sense selfless for him to take part in the fruit alongside her. 

Original Sin, when keeping evolution in mind, is the knowledge itself of good and evil, or, of the existence of morality. Once you realize that there are things that are wrong and things that are good, you have the power to commit evil or to commit good. Sin is when you commit evil even when you know it is wrong to do so. Adam and Eve committed sin against God even though they had the knowledge and in a sense, the fall was inevitable because God's creations were flawed and had intrinsic wanderlust and rebellion. This, would be what Chaos Magicians would see in people now. I disagree because it is purposefully sinning to the detriment of your soul, healthy and psychology. 

Nonetheless, Adam and Eve went on to have children, to raise them well, to be alive and conscious and carry the knowledge of God. 


 I hoped your enjoyed, I am humbled that you've given me your time and mind.
