That Adam gave the name and nature of animals, is solely mythological and material. It cannot be true that man was ordered to create man anew in partnership with God; this supposition was a dream, a myth. And the Lord God [Jehovah, Yawah] caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; and the rib, which the Lord God [Jehovah] had taken from man, made He a woman, and brought her unto the man.
Here falsity, error, credits Truth, God, with inducing a sleep or hypnotic state in Adam in order to perform a Hypnotic surgery surgical operation on him and thereby create woman. This is the first record of magnetism.
Beginning creation with darkness instead of light, — materially rather than spiritually, — error now simulates the work of Truth, mocking Love and declaring what great things error has done. Beholding the creations of his own dream and calling them real and God-given, Adam — alias error — gives them names. Afterwards he is supposed to become the basis of the creation of woman and of his own kind, calling them mankind , — that is, a kind of man.
But according to this narrative, surgery was first Mental midwifery performed mentally and without instruments; and this may be a useful hint to the medical faculty. It came about, also, that instruments were needed to assist the birth of mortals. The first system of suggestive obstetrics has changed. Another change will come as to the nature and origin of man, and this revelation will destroy the dream of existence, reinstate reality, usher in Science and the glorious fact of creation, that both man and woman proceed from God and are His eternal children, belonging to no lesser parent.
Genesis iii. Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the Lord God [Jehovah] had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
And the woman said unto the serpent. We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. Whence comes a talking, lying serpent to tempt the children of divine Love?
The serpent enters into the Mythical serpent metaphor only as evil. We have nothing in the animal kingdom which represents the species described, — a talking serpent, — and should rejoice that evil, by whatever figure presented, contradicts itself and has neither origin nor support in Truth and good.
Seeing this, we should have faith to fight all claims of evil, because we know that they are worthless and unreal. Adam, the synonym for error, stands for a belief of material mind. In this development, the immortal, spiritual law of Truth is made manifest as forever opposed to mortal, material sense. In divine Science, man is sustained by God, the divine Principle of being. The earth, at God's command, brings Divine providence forth food for man's use. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: for God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened; and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
I can do what God has not done for you. Bow down to me and have another god. Only admit that I am real, that sin and sense are more pleasant to the eyes than spiritual Life, more to be desired than Truth, and I shall know you, and you will be mine. The history of error is a dream-narrative.
The Illusion of Time: Seeing Scripture Through Science by William R. Nesbitt Jr.
The dream has no reality, no intelligence, no mind; therefore the Scriptural allegory dreamer and dream are one, for neither is true nor real. First , this narrative supposes that something springs from nothing, that matter precedes mind. This is the error, — that mortal man starts materially, that non-intelligence becomes intelligence, that mind and soul are both right and wrong.
It is well that the upper portions of the brain represent the higher moral sentiments, as if hope were ever prophesying Higher hope thus: The human mind will sometime rise above all material and physical sense, exchanging it for spiritual perception, and exchanging human concepts for the divine consciousness. Then man will recognize his God-given dominion and being.
Buddhism and the Illusion of Time
If, in the beginning, man's body originated in non-intelligent dust, and mind was afterwards put into body Biological inventions by the creator, why is not this divine order still maintained by God in perpetuating the species? Who will say that minerals, vegetables, and animals have a propagating property of their own? Who dares to say either that God is in matter or that matter exists without God?
Has man sought out other creative inventions, and so changed the method of his Maker? Which institutes Life, — matter or Mind? Does Life begin with Mind or with matter? Is Life sustained by matter or by Spirit? Certainly not by both, since flesh wars against Spirit and the corporeal senses can take no cognizance of Spirit. The mythologic theory of material life at no point resembles the scientifically Christian record of man as created by Mind in the image and likeness of God and having dominion over all the earth.

Is this knowledge Progeny cursed safe, when eating its first fruits brought death? Adam and his progeny were cursed, not blessed; and this indicates that the divine Spirit, or Father, condemns material man and remands him to dust. And he said, I heard Thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself. Knowledge and pleasure, evolved through material sense, produced the immediate fruits of fear and shame. Shame the effect of sin Ashamed before Truth, error shrank abashed from the divine voice calling out to the corporeal senses.
Is Mind in matter? Is Mind capable of error as well as of truth, of evil as well as of good, when God is All and He is Mind and there is but one God, hence one Mind? Fear was the first manifestation of the error of material sense. Thus error began and will end the dream of Fear comes of error matter. In the allegory the body had been naked, and Adam knew it not; but now error demands that mind shall see and feel through matter, the five senses.
Had he lost man's rich inheritance and God's behest, dominion over all the earth? This had never been bestowed on Adam. And He said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldst not eat? And the man said. The woman whom Thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.

Here there is an attempt to trace all human errors directly or indirectly to God, or good, as if He were the The beguiling first lie creator of evil. The allegory shows that the snake-talker utters the first voluble lie, which beguiles the woman and demoralizes the man. Is this an help meet for man? Materiality, so obnoxious to God, is already found in the rapid deterioration of the bone and flesh which came from Adam to form Eve.
The belief in material life and intelligence is growing worse at every step, but error has its suppositional day and multiplies until the end thereof. Truth, cross-questioning man as to his knowledge of False womanhood error, finds woman the first to confess her fault. This hereafter enabled woman to be the mother of Jesus and to behold at the sepulchre the risen Saviour, who was soon to manifest the deathless man of God's creating. This enabled woman to be first to interpret the Scriptures in their true sense, which reveals the spiritual origin of man.
And the Lord God [Jehovah] said unto the serpent,. I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. This prophecy has been fulfilled. The Son of the Virgin-mother unfolded the remedy for Adam, or error; and the Spirit and flesh Apostle Paul explains this warfare between the idea of divine power, which Jesus presented, and mythological material intelligence called energy and opposed to Spirit.
