Adam Kadmon – אדם קדמון

The Archetypal Man, or literally “ancient or primordial man.” His feet are planted in Malkuth and Kether is just above his head. This archetype is symbolically invoked in the Qabalictic Cross Ritual.

The oldest rabbinic source for the term Adam ha-Ḳadmoni is Numbers Rabbah x., where Biblical Adam is styled, not as usually Ha-Rishon (“the first”), but “Ha-Kadmoni” (“the original”).
