Year of the Snake 2013: Lilith

Year of the Snake 2013: Lilith

According to Jewish tradition, God created the first woman Lilith just as Adam from dust. Lilith was therefore not willing to submit to her husband. This is symbolized that she refused to lie under Adam in lovemaking. Adam was so enraged, that Lilith left the paradise. God created Adam a second wife, Eva, this time from the man’s rib.
Lilith was said to be the snake that Eve gave the fruit, with whom she seduced Adam. Lilith is sensual and confident – unlike to the subordinate Eve.
Lilith and Eve represent the two types of women who are in psychology and literature between Heaven and Hell.
Holography is a technique that allows the light scattered from an object to be recorded and later reconstructed so that when an imaging system (a camera or an eye) is placed in the reconstructed beam, an image of the object will be seen even when the object is no longer present. The image changes as the position and orientation of the viewing system changes in exactly the same way as if the object were still present, thus making the image appear three-dimensional.
