I’m in the middle of a sefer by Rav Chaim Freidlander zt”l. He brings – I think it was from the Ramcha”l- that before the cheit Adam HaRishon’s guf was like our ruchniyos and his ruchniyos was ever more ruchniyos.

From this I understand that until halfway through the third perek the entire description of the brias ha’olam and the the cheit was all on -what we call- a ruchniyosdik level and it wasn’t until after the cheit that the briyah was nisgashem.

This means that all the trees, fish birds earth etc. were all spiritual entities and only became the physical things we see today after the cheit.

What do you say?
