1st/930 years of the book (ספר) of the generations (תולדת) beginning with the Biblical Adam (אדם) without the as the previous species nomenclature of the Adam (האדם). The Bible starts to deal with a named individual as the forefather of human generations: Adam (אדם) Ben-Allahim (בנ-אלהים). This is similar to the expression of e pluribus unum: “out of many, one;” out of the plural generic species Homo sapiens of the Adam (האדם) comes the singular individual Adam (אדם). The scientific term for this is ontogenesis which is the development of a single constituent within a species, in this case Homo sapiens, see BC AYN 440,696. 1st through 12 months of baby with name (שמה) Adam is also individual with name (שמה) Adam (אדם), forefather of human generations. This is a zero (Allahim אלהים; “an incorporeal non-human; no thing” or “not a thing”) event marker, apex or tip used as a frame of reference for the beginning of a time-line sequence of events. In kinship and descent, if the apical ancestor of a clan (氏: Shi; “house”) is nonhuman, it is called a totem (TuTeng: 圖騰; “diagram/picture + fly/run” or a visual sequence; a movie).
1st through the 10th Biblical generations before the Biblical deluge is a condensed time version of the Sumerian first 10 pre-dynastic kings of the Sumerian king list before the Sumerian deluge and after the kingship descended out of heaven.
Metaphorically this is similar to a condensed time version; mathematical instead of generational, offered by Sri Yukteswar Giri in his The Holy Science (מדע קדש) where instead of the full cycle of Yugas equaling 4,320,000 years a full cycle of Yugas equal only 12,000 years. Beginning with individual Adam (אדם) until the time of the Biblical “fall of man” is the 1st/7 periods of what Darby calls the “dispensation of innocence” which is prior to Adam’s fall (Genesis 1:1-3:7), and covers the period of time of BC AYN 3959 until Adam’s fall with Eve in BC AYN 3890.
