Adam and Eve, who are my father and mother, are blood and ink and include the seventy nations.
     Abraham Abulafia, Perush Sefer Yezirah



The pairs "Adam and Eve," "my father and mother," and "blood and ink," all have the numerical value of seventy. What is implied is that "Adam," "my father," and "ink" represent the formative aspect of existence, whereas "mother," "blood," and "Eve" represent the material aspect of existence.
