What was Adam and Eve’s greatest discovery when they were cut apart?
It was, possibly, like looking in a mirror: “Bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh” (Genesis 2:23)—yet something different.
It was also the first time that Adam and Eve could begin to have a conversation.
When I speak with another being who is similar to me, yet different, I begin not only to understand the other, but also to understand what I myself am speaking about.
–Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz
