Like the assumptions (you call, "speculations") -- which you claim are 
unobservable in "space-time reality" -- your literal anthropomorphized Biblical 
commentaries are equally speculative interpretations of scriptural metaphors, 
allegories, symbols and glyphs that also have no actual physical reality... Yet, 
do have direct relationship to the primal beginning of the Cosmos -- ages 
before physical Mankind appeared on Earth -- If only we could see the actual 
reality such metaphors and allegories picture symbolically.

Rather than make speculative literal interpretations of them, we need to 
study Kabbala to understand the real (scientific) meaning of those Biblical 
commentaries.   According to that Kabbalistic view, based directly on the 
experiential knowledge of Moses, who was an "initiate" of the Egyptian Priests' secret 
or sacred knowledge, and the first "Freemason") -- the first MAN (Adam Kadmon) 
is the initial spiritually conscious nature of the Universe (actually the 
"Solar System as a direct reflection of it, that explains the Egyptian "Solar 
God") who ultimately transmuted (alchemically?) into physical Mankind (Adam and 
Eve) on Earth.   Therefore, we could assume from this, that the paradisiacal 
"Garden of Eden? in the Bible could be the initial abode of Adam Kadmon 
(presumedly androgynous before the split into male and female) -- before the fall... 
Which, aso interpreted scientifically, could very well be the fall from spirit 
to matter (or spiritual substance to physical substance).   See:
>From a hypothetical scientific viewpoint, the symbolism you quoted could 
actually refer to the fractal descent of the first spiritual conscious beings -- 
i.e., the first 2+4+8 "sons" (Suns) of universal MIND (Manas-Mahatma-Man) that 
would have come into existence during the initial HOT (fiery) expansion, and 
fractal involutional descent at the primal beginning (of the Big Bang).   All 
this occurring in perfect symmetry at the first instant of metric time. 

In other words, this primal spherical triune monad, or initial field 
(vehicle) of cosmic consciousness, would be the initial condition of the Cosmic mind 
prior to its (fiery) FALL (through fractal involution) into phenomenal physical 
matter and its ultimate objective forms (after initial inflation and breaking 
of symmetry).   

Thus, incidentally, explaining the "'Fall' of Man" in the Bible, as well as 
the apparent duality between what you call "observer consciousness" and "self 
reflective consciousness"... Which I see as (1) singular Cosmic or primal 
consciousness and (2) multiply separated individualized consciousness... Both being 
identical, with respect to awareness, will, and cause of qualia, and 
inseparable at the fundamental primal SPACE or zero-point of conscious experience.   
Accordingly, we could know what it is to experience being a bat by analogy and 
correspondence.   We see and locate holographically by sight and sound 
(binocularly and binaurally) the same way they do by sound alone. And, I'm sure their 
smell, taste, and touch, are much the same as ours, other than differences in 
levels of sensitivity.   

Therefore, the Universe, right from the beginning in primal SPACE, located 
everywhere in the Planck vacuum, is governed by fundamental cyclic laws inherent 
in the initial spinergy of the primal "singularity" and is omipresent, 
omniscient and omnipotent -- with no need of a separate personal GOD-creator with 
miraculous powers.

In fact, the caduceus, The thunderbird (linked to the swastika), and other 
mystical symbols such as the Ouroboros (snake with tail in mouth), the twin 
triangle Seal of Solomon (star of David), etc., have far more profound, 
scientifically rational and truthful meanings than you, or other fundamentalist 
religious proselytizers could ever attribute to them or imagine.

That Big Bang fiery explosion, and descending fractal involutions of 
conscious universal mind could be what is meant by the "descent in fiery chariots," 
etc.   And, Ezekial and Elijah, like Noah and other "ancients" in the Bible, 
could very well be anthropomorphized characterizations of those primal conscious 
entities who descend (incarnate?) into physical mankind... With the Biblical 
flood, being another metaphor, symbolizing the transformation of the encoded 
imagery (e.g., passing through the allegorical "waters of space") from the 
spiritual-mental worlds, to the Astral-Physical worlds...   Along with the Ark 
being a metaphorical allegory, describing the transcendent fields of genetic 
memory carrying the informational "seeds" of all forms of sentient nature (later 
expressed physically in the DNA molecule describing each such organism).

All that fundamental reality can be experienced directly in Samadhi 
meditation -- as reported in the visions of the prophets, and by countless initiated 
meditative Masters and Adepts -- following the instructions given by the Buddha 
directly to his disciples, and as explained by Krishna in the Bhagavad Gita, 
as well as in the Hindu Upanishads and Puranas, along with Patanjali, and all 
other initiated gurus.

This can also all be scientifically explainable, hypothetically, in terms of 
pure Cosmic consciousness coupled with the noumenal matter-energy (spin 
momentum) that is the inherent nature of the primal or absolute SPACE -- out of 
which this whole space-time universe emanated, involved fractally, expanded and 
evolved into the Cosmos and all sentient beings, up until the appearance of 
physical mankind.

Any other interpretation of such conscious experiences or evolution of Man, 
as described metaphorically and symbolically in the biblical scriptures, is 
rooted in miracles and a personal God-creator outside of primal SPACE and eternal 
TIME (Infinite duration) that, from a purely scientific philosophical point 
of view MUST be the source of all consciousness and physical being, along with 
metric time, metric space, and the speed of light that defines all physical 
(but NOT meta- or supra-physical) existences.   In the higher order fields 
located everywhere in the Planck vacuum, the speed of light varies up to near 
infinite velocities, the closer the fields get to the zero-point of absolute or 
primal SPACE (that, in itself, is timeless and dimensionless). Note the 
potentially infinite "zero-point energy" in the Planck vacuum measured by the Casimir 
effect, and the action at a distance "entanglement" of the Aspect experiment. 

Therefore. the underlying metaphysical reality is just as "existent" as the 
metric physical reality, and the scientific explanations of that reality (even 
if only hypothetical and unfalsifiable) are far more consistent with modern 
scientific thought related to physics and cosmology -- (which, in QFT, LQG, 
string, M and Holographic Paradigm theories, etc., are coming closer and closer to 
realizing the fundamental metaphysical truths underlying overall reality) -- 
than are the faith based ideas of fundamentalists and creationists literal 
interpretations of the Bible... None of which are appropriate as evidence in 
scientific discussions of consciousness and its relationship to mind, memory, 
brain, body, senses, the objective world, or space-time itself.
