Adam Kadmon


Adam Kadmon, in Judaism and Kabbalistic literature, means the "first" or archetypal or the "higher" man. His principal relationship is to God for his essence and ontological possibilities. Combined Adam Kadmon is the immanent man, metraton, God's entire spiritual manifestation as well as the earthly, finite, man; he possessed both body and soul. A.G.H.
