 Magma - Encyclopedia, History, Geography and Biography   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
Magma is molten rock often located inside a magma chamber beneath the surface of the Earth.
Magma collects in many separate magma chambers within the Earth's crust, and will have slightly different compositions in different places, which can occur at either a subduction zone, a rift zone or mid-oceanic ridge, or above a mantle plume hotspot.
Magma rises primarily because a melt is less dense than its source rock, it is propelled upward through the lithosphere by the buoyancy that its lower density creates (the way less dense wood is pushed up and floats in denser water).

The other suggested defining the metre as one ten-millionth of the length of the earth's meridian along a quadrant (one-fourth the polar circumference of the earth).
Although it was later determined that the first prototype metre bar was short by a fifth of a millimetre due to miscalculation of the flattening of the earth, this length became the standard.
1791 March 30 — The French National Assembly accepts the proposal by the French Academy of Sciences that the new definition for the metre be equal to one ten-millionth of the length of the earth's meridian along a quadrant (one-fourth the polar circumference of the earth).

Adam is said, in the Torah, to have been created from the dust of the earth, and in the Talmud (Tractate Sanhedrin 38b) is, more specifically, described as having initially been a golem kneaded together from mud.
This unnamed wife was purportedly made in the same way as Adam, from the "dust of the earth", but the sight of her being created proved too much for Adam to take and he refused to go near her.
Enki himself was both the lover of Ninhursag, and the first leader on earth, and both he and Ninhursag were created by the chief god, Enlil, hence having parallels with Adam in addition to the story of the rib, and his charge over the garden.
