Spoke 2

Genesis 2 chain Duality/Division

And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

Genesis 2:9

Genesis 2 introduces many themes based on the concept of Duality. In particular, this verse introduces the concept of Good and Evil. It also integrates with the Inner Wheel of Revelation, with Revelation 2 being the only other verse in all the Bible to mention the "Tree of Life" in the midst of the Garden/Paradise. We have a KeyLink based on the set {"tree of life", midst, garden/paradise):

The theme of Duality is expanded in Genesis 2.18:

And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.

This verse records the first declaration that something in God's Creation was "not good" and God's solution to make a mate (dual/equal-opposite) for Adam. This coheres with the ancient Rabbinical explanation of why the phrase "it was good" is missing from the Second Day of Creation. In The Gates of Light (16th century), Rabbi Gikatilla explains, saying:

"it was good" is not mentioned on the second day because it is the essence of difference and separation ... Wherever there is distinction and separation, good is not to be found, for good comes to bring peace and connect all things.

He then went on to connect this with Genesis 2 and the verse above. The theme of Division integrates with the Second Seal and the Horseman with a great Sword. All of this further integrates with the concept of the Word, the nature of the Second Person of the Godhead, and the general meaning of the Number Two. Continuing in Genesis 2.19:

And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof. And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him

This passage contains the first occurrence of the word (Shemuth, Names), which is the the Hebrew title of the Second Book, Exodus, taken from its first verse (Exodus 1.1):

Now these are the names of the children of Israel, which came into Egypt; every man and his household came with Jacob. Reuben, Simeon, Levi, and Judah, Issachar, Zebulun, and Benjamin, Dan, and Naphtali, Gad, and Asher.

This integrates with the general theme of the Word that dominates Spoke 2, and with the Revelation 2 (Cf. The Structure of Exodus).
