Essentials of Human Biology:
The Story of Adam and Eve as they lay the foundations of humanity
Adam and Eve
Adam and Eve were the forerunners of human biology, who were charged with building society and humanity. They began with nothing but their common sense, human instincts, and a vision for the perfect person and community.
As they stood observing the wonder of sunset and the ocean, they pondered the prediction that their seed would be multiplied as greatly as the stars of the heavens, and the sands on the shore. This idea seemed unfathomable. They knew, however, that humanity needed a solid foundation.
From these early beginnings, they understood the most basic principles of life. The desired end was fulfillment of the physical, mental and spiritual needs of both the individual and the community. Their task was to design a template with universal application, one that could stand the test of time.
For the physical aspect they knew:
1) Structure and Function were the basic elements of biology and life.
2) Structure was made of parts.
3) Function consisted of 3 vital abilities: receive, process, and export.
4) Collaboration was essential, between:
structure and structure, function and function, and structure and function
For the mental life, they knew essential elements were more abstract and included abilities in:
For the spiritual life:
the ultimate goal was to achieve Oneness, which conceptually was the most abstract and difficult to achieve.
Space and Time
Adam and Eve dealt with the physical constraints of space and time. They understood that unlike space, time was progressive. Time influenced both the individual life as well as the life of the species in perpetuity.
They knew the evolution of an entire species would require a long, almost indefinite amount of time. Since an individual life is relatively short, growth and especially reproduction in a single life cycle would be essential. Only a miracle could answer the challenge of creating a new life, and this miracle, unlike evolution, would be urgently necessary. Adam and Eve therefore turned to their Creator, and begged for this miracle as an immediate need.
