The Spiritual Constitution of Man

God formed man from earth and infused the spirit, and between those two the soul developed:

In Greece we have the same story, where Hermaphroditos and Salmakis joins to create man. Hermaphroditos, the Hermaphroditic godling was a son of Hermes and Aphrodite. His form was merged with that of the Naiad [water nymph] Salmakis to form a creature that was half male and half female. He was travelling from the mountain Ida [Kundalini ?] when she pulled him down deep into the lake, symbolizing the physical world, the Fall, and merging with him giving him body. Connotations to Sophia.

Hermaphroditos and Salmakis

We have also the three powers in Alchemy, sulphur, salt and mercury:
