I'm just going to throw another idea out there about the whole Adam and Eve topic: What is everyone's take on the story as a parable?
Adam represents consciousness ('the occupant') and Eve represents 'the context'.
As such, the living human form is a representation of the union of Adam and Eve (See Also, Metaphysics, The Alchemical Marriage).
The 'Seduction by Eve' (or 'the fall') represents the consciousness developing a type of anmesia that causes the consciousness to 'forget' that it is not the form that it presently occupies.
'The Fall' is also represented by the introduction of 'evil' (knowledge thereof) into the otherwise 'All Good' (See Plato, The Form of The Good) cosmology of Eden.
This Adam and Eve stuff is not temporal (no shelf life) but represents, in an allegorical context, the human condition.
