Metaphysical meaning of Irad (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Irad (mbd)
Irad, i'-rad (Heb.)--excitative movement; self-leading passion; blind whirling; courser; fugitive; wild ass; dragon.

Son of Enoch and grandson of Cain (Gen. 4:18). This was not the Enoch who walked with God.

Meta. Irad belongs to the outer physical consciousness and organism of man. He is the summing up of the stubborn, foolish, destructive, devouring--yet transitory and fleeting--emotions and desires that are the result of sense man's ignorant, confused thoughts and beliefs. (See ARAD; the two names seem to be identical, and the meanings are the same.)
