Kadmon comes from ‘Aveer Qadmon', meaning ‘primitive air' or Azoth. Thothtells us that the Azoth was the substance in which Prima Matra or First Matter was formed. He also states that the Adam Kadmon was a two-fold manifestation:
1) A divine pattern or schematic which is a ‘Light Body' of macrocosmic proportions
2) A formulation of that sacred patterning into a being that was supra-physical, and from which the ‘Adamic Race was spawned.
From the Azoth or primitive air in which the supernal world was created, the Adam Kadmon took substance as the ‘Kosmic Man'.
