Which elements were used to create the Man?

Philippines
May 17, 2007 12:27pm CST
From my previous discussion, after creating man, the Creator realized that he had used up all the concrete elements. All solid and concrete elements were used for the man and nothing compact on hand, was left over to create the woman. The story said the Creator took...the roundness of the moon, the flexibility of a clinging vine and the trembling of the grass, the slenderness of a reed, the blossoming of flowers, the lightness of leaves and the serenity of the rays of sunshine, the tears of clouds and the instability of the wind, the fearfulness of a rabbit and the vanity of a peacock, the softness of a bird's breast and the hardness of a diamond, the sweetness of honey and the cruelty of a tiger, the urning of fire and the coldness of snow, the talkativeness of a magpie and the singing of a nightingale, and the faithfulness of a mother lion to create the woman. My friend, Fifty, said she'd liked to know the elements used for creating the man? ~~lol Now knowing which elements were used to create the woman; what was the "solid/concrete" elements used to create the man? Were there all really solid or did He add some other elements? Maybe the Creator used the roughness of tree barks, the strength of a father bear, the majestic ordinance of a lion's roar, the willingness of self sacrifice like a spider for his widow, the boastfulness of the peacock...etc..LOL... Please add your elements to the list for man, so we can build a picture of which elements were used in his creation. Male inputs will be highly appreciated.~lol For women, if you feel our elements are missing, feel free to add to it too. (^^,)

Now that I am in a better mood...he he he! and feel more generous towards men. LOL! I can say they have the roving eye and far seeing sight of an eagle, the industry of the ants, the worshipfulness of the dogs, grace of a panther and the emotional isolation of a lighthouse that beacons and attracts us but seems so far out of reach. I still have a lot to say about men though both positive and negative but I have to get hold of myself.

~lol So generous indeed. But I love the lighthouse comparison so true. But I just hope men shed a lot of good light and good directions, before women come crushing to the shore.~lol Feel free to add more elements Cd. Either negative or positive, they would be always appreciated. Take care! And more blessings! (^^,)

As per a religious book : "The Lord said, 'Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.' So God created man in his own image. Good took the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being (soul). When creating this human form God would have taken all which symbolises strength and persevarance, because man reprsents a pillar of strength. He is like the branches of a tree to shadow his children, protect them. He is like the force of wind, to fight all hardships and injustice. To have depth of an ocean, calm on surface but always working in his mind and heart.

some element might be: the speed of tiger, the grace of brightest star in the sky, the rythm of sea waves and the warmth of ice.

All human beings are made up of air, water, fire, earth and space. There is no difference between man and woman.

Yeah, it's so funny to think about it. And what if woman was created first with all the concrete elements and man with the non-concrete elements. Hmmm?! ~lol Thank you for your response Lydia! Have a nice day! (^^,)

Hi Aphroditei! You have already provided so many elements.Lol.All I can think of right now is that God must have added the might and boldness of a mountain as one of the elements to create man.Lemme think....the mindless rage of a mighty bull,the hardness of a rock,the blindness(towards softer feelings,Lol)of a bat,the craziness of a monkey(gosh,guys please don't mind,Lol),the silent dutiful spirit(towards family)and powerful gallop of a horse,protective like a cave,loud like the thunder,enveloping like wind,caring like the winter sun.......etc.Lol

Hi Melody! Nah, I haven't provided much, compared to your very exquisite elements, especially for the monkey.~lol and also sometimes, the manners of a donkey.~lol Just kidding. And also "caring like the winter sun" and yet sometimes so distant and cold like ice with an avalanche temper. (^^,) Thank you for adding great elements Melody! Have a nice day! (^^,)

i can't really think of any particular element but i think they r made of everything we r going to find in a garbage can (don't realy want to offend anyone)!!;)i used to think that it was female spider who kills her mate to earn herself the adjective of a widow:) in my opinion men r not capable of self sacrificing it's only woman who really does so!!;) by the way i liked ur examples of lion bear and bar of tree for describing the men's rough-toughness:)
