Answer: He created an egoistic quality, according to which each of His creations wants to be filled with Him, the Creator. Such a desire is called “inanimate,” “vegetative,” or “animate.”
And if the creation wants to be filled not just in the form of inanimate, vegetative, and animate, but from the sensation of another, meaning, no longer within himself, but in another, then it is called “man.”
The Creator feels us outside of Himself. And if we reach such a state and can feel something outside of ourselves, then we will be called “Adam” (Man) – from the word “domeh” (similar to the Creator).
