The soul of adam was split into two, and eve was born out of him.’
If in the beginning , there were so few people on the face of earth and now there are so many, where did all those new souls come from ?
The answer is simple, we divide into two. Our souls divide as do crystals and stars, cells and plants.
Our soul divides into two, and those new souls are in turn transformed into two and so, within a few generations we are scattered over a large part of earth.
In this process of dividing into two, we also find ourselves. And this process of finding ourselves is called love. Because when a soul divides, it always divides into a male part and a female part.
That’s how the book of genesis explains it ; the soul of adam was split into two, and eve was born out of him.’
