Sorry, in my visions, it wasn't like that. We were the serpent fluttering about the garden and we disintegrated, one being, one mind, many aspects. I guess that is the problem with drinking from the waters of the inner world, you have no objective standard to set you straight.
Also, it wasn't an apple, but a pommegranite like fruit and the seeds burst in flashes of extreme pleasure as we ate them.
In my vision there is a tree of life that leads to bondage at the hands of a tyrannical force and a seed of knowledge that comes from between our eyes that can be planted at the base of the tree to unleash a fractal vine of chaos which frees us from the bondage of unity, allowing us to have the independence of the tree of knowledge. It is we, the brazen ones who can grow as mighty cedars to become something truly Aurelian. ;p Maybe I just have it all twisted around. The reason I feel terrible is that I haven't really avoided the tree of life exactly. I'm walking both paths: sephirothic and qlippothic, father and mother and epiphany. I just feel torn and lost, and while I'm trying to remain detached, the world is a seductive force, constantly reeling me back in.
