I've had some flack in the past for mentioning other religious traditions,
but sex is an important part of the structure of metaphysics of "ineffable"
God in the Rg Veda and the Kabbalah, but I think in this case the analogy has
been taken a little too far, although I have also posted that the composition
of one who is with God in the gnostic Gospel of Thomas is also androgynous,
(as allegedly stated by Jesus) reflecting the state before Eve was
allegorically created from Adam's rib and again the analogy is - once there
was sex, there was desire - once there was desire the possibility of sin
God making himself "wives" is a little too anthropomorphic for me.
