What Would Lilith Do?

In ancient Sumer, Lilith was the mythical female aspect of the night wind spirits. She was associated with guarding the gateway between the spiritual and physical realms. He holds the rings of Shem, which show she has gained immortality by passing through the underworld, thereby earning the sacred wisdom of the Tree of Life.

The later Hebrew Yahwist cult demonized Lilith as the disobedient first wife of Adam, who killed her own children, and who was also the cause of nocturnal emissions, the "spilling of the sacred seed".
