In the beginning, break it down

The Old Testament Biblical myth of the Garden of Eden, though not necessarily the best example, suffices to mythically demonstrate the (sub)stages of the “fall” (involution) from freedom into determinism as well as to demonstrate the progression of the early (substages of process. A pure and innocent Anthropos, Adam, located in the paradisical Garden of Eden with unlimited freedom, clearly represents lst substage “anthropotheic potential”. The creative extension of Eve from the rib of Adam, analogous to the linear charge or force of the “separated-but-attracted” subatomic proton and electron, symbolizes the 2nd substage “binding/desire principle”. The “Tree of Knowledge” of good and evil in the center of the Garden is analogous to the establishment in the atom of a nuclear center with a stable structure and represents the self-conscious knowledge and form of the 3rd substage “identity principle”. Complete banishment from the Garden (of freedom) into the ordinary physical world of constraint and law (determinism) where trial-and-error learning and responsibility of’ self-initiated action takes place, with the accumulation and combination of facts, represents the physical solidity of the ordinary world of molecular combinations and obviously symbolizes the 4th substage “combination/control principle”. Following this latter deterministic predicament, the New Testament introduces the “virgin birth” of the self-organizational anthropotheos (Christ) and the ascending substages leading to enlightenment (or anthropotheic realization).
