For purposes of this experiment we have to go back in time to the Garden of Eden. We are assuming that there are only three kinds of beings (lower animals are not 'beings'). The first being is God. The second are angelic creatures (faithful or fallen). The third is mankind. In the subset of mankind there are two and only two creatures Adam and Eve.
For our purposes Adam and Eve have not fallen or sinned yet.
- Adam and Eve are able to be in the presence of God and speak/interact with Him
- Adam and Eve are able to be in the presence of angelic creatures and speak/interact with them
- Adam and Eve are cloaked in shekinah
- Adam and Eve do not have to contend with death or a known limit to their life span
- Adam was given dominion/authority over creation
- There are only three commandments to which Adam is subject, two positive and one negative:
- Tend the garden
- Produce offspring
- Don't eat from the tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil
- Adam was restricted to a 3 dimensional reality
Mankind currently exists and is limited inside three dimensions of space and one dimension of time. Does it follow that we always have been limited in this way?
Please weigh in with your position even if you don't believe in a literal Adam and Eve. It's an experiment in thought, not empirical data. FWIW, I'm assuming that our universe exists in a 10 dimensional reality.
