"Two beings [Adam and Nachash（＝蛇）] had intercourse with Eve,
and she conceived from both and bore two children.
Each followed one of the male parents（＝この《ひとり》とは アダムか）,
and their spirits parted, one to this side and one to the other,
and similarly their characters.
On the side of Cain are all the haunts of the evil species;
from the side of Abel comes a more merciful class, yet not wholly beneficial -- good wine mixed with bad." (Zohar 136)
Hebrew Gematoria NACHASH＝The Shining ONE(1ドル紙幣）
The Dreidel and the Snake
The "serpent" gets its due in the Chanukah game. This scenario is replayed with every dreidel spin. The letters on the Dreidel, Nun (50), Gimmel (3), Hey (5), Shin (300) equals 358, add up to the same value as the Hebrew word for snake, nachash (Nun (50), Chet (8), Shin(300).
Beginning with the story of Adam & Eve and the forbidden fruit, the snake became the Jewish anthropomorphic repre-sentation of evil. Every time a dreidel ends its spin, evil (nachash - snake) falls. When evil stumbles, God's goodness triumphs.
