Adam and Eve
When Yahweh Elohim (or YE) created Adam, YE expected Adam to live directly from the Heart.
The physical heart YE placed in the left side of Adam's chest.
The spiritual heart YE placed in the center of Adam's chest.
The Heart Itself was hidden in the right side of the chest.
Adam, though, could not locate the Heart.
YE gave various animals to Adam, to help him locate the Heart.
But the animals, though living from the Heart, did not possess the awareness of living from the Heart.
So YE split Adam down the middle, separating Adam into a "right" side and a "left" side.
The left-side Adam became the masculine Adam who, though possessing all three hearts, became adept in using the physical heart and all things physical and intellectual.
The right-side Adam became the feminine Eve, who, though possessing all three hearts, became adept at living directly from the Heart.
Eve, in being a "help-meet", was actually a "Heart-meet".
The Heart can only be known in silence, stillness, quiet, and darkness.
The "eve"-ning is when the Heart becomes most active, during sleep and during brahmamurta, the dark hours of 3 a.m. to 6 a.m.
(The Buddha awakened to the Heart, to "Eve", during brahmamurta, as the Morning Star, the "Christ", rose over the eastern horizon.)
Eve is the personification, embodiment, manifestation, of the Heart in human form.
Adam did not recognize Eve as the Heart, and sought for the Heart in inwardness.
Adam rejected the temptations of dualism, symbolized by the dual-pronged tongue of the wise and deceptive serpent.
Adam sought the Heart in asceticism, renunciation, and abandonment of the world.
Adam lived as the Yogi Shiva.
Eve, Adam's Parvati, had other plans.
Adam had not known falsehood.
If Adam were to live in the Heart, then Adam required tempering via the serpent's wisdom and deception.
Eve introduced Adam to falsehood, so that Adam could directly experience the false as false.
The First Adam took the false to be true, ushering death into the world.
The Second Adam took the false to be false, and beat the Drum of the Deathless.
The Second Adam realized the Heart, and lived from, in, and as the Heart.
In the Second Adam, the masculine Adam and the feminine Eve are re-united in scientific-tantric union.
In the Second Adam, the Beloved is re-united with the Heart.
