"... Male and female God created them." - Genesis 1:27 It was not until 4,000 some years after the first telling of that myth that Carl Jung, in his seminal work on the unconscious, illuminated the scientific truth of this Old Testament story: we hold a created universe within ourselves, male and female, animal and human, familiar and foreign, both spiritual and earth-bound. Our psychic work is to integrate our different components into a whole, into a dynamic, balanced universe. Perhaps that's what the myth means by saying we are created in the image of God.
