The Genesis One Code is an interesting, well-written examination of the Genesis one days from a Jewish Kabbalistic perspective. Author Daniel Friedmann has a good handle on the science behind modern cosmology and apparently, extensive knowledge of the Kabbalistic literature.
However, the basic premise of of converting creation days into some fixed period of time corresponding to the historical timeframe of the universe results in irreconcilable conflicts between the Genesis one account and the record of science. In reconciling these conflicts, Friedmann nearly always turns to a highly figurative interpretation of Genesis one. Since I have no background in the Kabbalistic literature, I can’t comment on that, but would be interested in others’ perspective on how The Genesis One Code handles what must be at least somewhat diverse Kabbalistic interpretations of Genesis one.
