Well, that 's a little off topic,
in that we were analysing the
story of Eve, her apple,

However, having said that,
in my opinion, based upon
some accounts of people who have
returned from death, I suspect
that there is only one person alive in all the universe,
and that the diversity of life is an illusionary
measure to avoid boredom.
As Richard Bach put it: " we are the otters of the universe. "
I am not a Biblical expert.
Some people have extracted from the Bible
that Lucifer ( bearer of light ) was God 's first son,
and disloyal. I take it as a myth.
