I tend to side with the theory that in the Garden of Edan, there was an egoless label-less state. There was only Oneness.
In that state there is no separating dualities such as good and bad, tall and short, man and women ...as its all relative.
Plus when you study enlightenment, they say it is ego death which results in absolute freedom and the experience of absolute nonduality.
Perhaps God saying he is a jealous God, was just the author's own limited perspective being imbellished into the story.
Either way, from 8 years of intense study into these topics, it is an interesting idea and one that holds some weight based on descriptions of what
people have learned in near death experiences.
It would be the most craziest thing ever, to be born pure, then to put on a satan-esque false identity that is the cause of the experience of
separation, war, murders, rapes, etc.......
Imagine that ....
