The Bible and the Psyche Individuation Symbolism in the Old Testament
Edward F. Edinger
According to “Yahweh God fashioned man of dust from the soil. Then he breathed into his nostrils a breath of life, and thus man became a living being.” Man (Adam) comes from earth (Adamah) and shall return to it.
The other creation story of humanity is “God created man in the image of himself, in the image of God he created him, male and female he created them (Genesis 1:27)—union of spirit and matter.
There is deep doctrine in the legend of the Fall; it is the expression of a dim presentiment that the emancipation of ego consciousness was a Luciferian deed. Man’s whole history consists from the very beginning in a conflict between his feeling of inferiority and his arrogance.
