Symbols are not limited to actual and tangible things, trees or animals, rituals,

of astonishing figures,
among kings, judges, prophets, seers or common citizens dreams.
During 4000 years these characters have transmitted messages of the divine

Actually he dreamt about a woman, the first woman in the universe,
grown from his own limbs.
A tree grows from a kernel.
Adam saw the woman molding, taking shape gradually,
from a deep bone of his being.
The eyes closed,
he saw the woman materializing and getting a human appearance,
but slightly differentiated from himself.
He opened his eyes and said :
" This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh !… "
