Is this what you mean? Going back to genesis where Adam is to know both good and evil, to be as god?
Yes, I am interpreting the genesis story...which comes out of man's subconscious. The subconscious mind is unknown...secret. Why? In the realms of
knowledge, there are no levels of mind...no dark places...nothing unknown. The subconscious has partial knowledge...so it has none at all. So the
genesis story is mixed up and misleading. The parable of the prodigal son is a better genesis story. It is the idea that there is more than
knowledge, more than GoD to be known that drives the prodigal son from "home". More than GoD is nOt gOd. GoD is "good". What is nOt gOd must be
opposite, because the good is complete and perfect. It cannot be added to without detracting from it...diluting it...adulterating it.
GoD does not "know" evil because evil is not knowable. It is not knowable because it is not real. To "know" evil is to attempt to make evil
"real", as if both GoD and nOt gOd can be real. This is impossible, and can result only in an imagined experience within one's mind. The
experience can not be more than hypothetical. Such is the world.
The Son of God has everything...IS everything. The world is the Son's attempt to have both everything [good] and more than everything [???]. In
this attempt, none of the good is real, and none of the evil is real. In this way, the good is diluted and adulterated...again, hypothetically.
Adam is a symbol of the mind which chooses to "eat" [digest] the idea that what is more than "good" [GoD] can be knowable. It is not necessarily
an attempt to leave the good entirely. It is an attempt to have both together. But this is like trying to combine opposites. It is confusing. Man
expresses this confusion. The biblical Adam did not eat the fruit of the tree of good and evil. Adam IS the fruit of the eating of the "tree" of
good and evil. Adam is the fruit of a mind [the prodigal son's mind] which digests the idea that good and its opposite can be combined and
"known" as "real". For this reason, the world seems "real" to those who believe in it.
All in the world are aspects of the mind that is digesting the ramifications of such a combination. They are "in" on the "conspiracy"
so-to-speak. All participants in the world can trace a decision tree back to the "genesis" of this world. Before this world, there was no such
thing as decision. And deciding that opposites can be combined, the mind has been deciding ever since, fragmenting along the way, until it manifests
in so many ways, one of which is "man".
"Man" is the effect of a decision tree which deems to "know" both good and its opposite together. The effect is a thing which seems to both live
and die. Man "lives". Or, does he? He "dies". Or, does he? He seems to live, and he seems to die. Relative to death, man lives. And he
dies relative to what seems to live. But what can die was never alive. Life is "good", you see. But when Life is mixed with death, there appears a
strange anomaly. The "life" of man, therefore, is not Life at all. This is just one example of how mixing good and its opposite adulterates the
good, and makes it confusing and meaningless. This is one example. Just about everything in the world is some kind of combination like this. And in
this way, the mind is thoroughly confused.
Consider "man" to be the right hand, and his subconscious mind to be the left hand. The right hand does not know what the left hand is doing. And
yet it is the same mind! This is opposite knowledge, in which there are no levels of mind.
