Something about this bugs me, and I think it has something to do with "what is unassumed is unredeemed".
Our salvation comes from the Incarnate Logos who assumed our humanity in order to redeem it. He did not assume an "ideal" humanity, but rather, He deified it by joining it to Him. His body and soul, like ours, were created, and his humanity lived under the conditions of the Fall (He thirsted, hungered, felt tired, wept etc). It was a very "earthly" humanity which Christ assumed, not an idealised "heavenly" one.
