THE TREE OF KNOWLEDGE

ANCIENT UNSOLVED PROBLEM

MANFRED: But grief should be the instructor of the wise;
Sorrow is knowledge: they who know the most
Must mourn the deepest o’er the fatal truth,
The Tree of Knowledge is not that of Life.
                                                       Byron



       Science is much too important
        to be left to Mathematicians.

        E = MC2
        Einstein the Pacifist. Explosion. Hiroshima.

        M = E
                C2
       God the Creator. Implosion. The Universe.

  1. Eating from the Tree of Knowledge is grasping out to the world of becoming. It is the curiosity of the other – the beginning of the illusion/delusion of a separate self, me and you, you and me. It is the beginning of all evil. If you want to know about good and evil (as a duality), you have to go out and experience as someone separate within duality. The state of oneness with the Source is given up or at least neglected for the experience of outside knowledge, wealth, power, pleasure. Differentiation takes place and unity with the One is more and more forgotten … until you find that you suffer. Then there is more of the whole process until you find that you have suffered enough!

    So, who are you?
    Mr Teacher.

    Oh yes. And what do you teach?
    I teach people what they already know.

    And what’s that?
    That they have nothing to learn.

    And how long does that take?
    Usually many many lifetimes.

    Of hard work?
    Of hard suffering.

    If you are born Mr Rabbit,
    you have long ears
    and can hear Mr Fox coming.
    But you cannot hear Mr Farmer
    before his bullet hits your head.

    If you are born Mr Dog,
    you have lots of rabbits to chase
    But all the other dogs will sniff your bottom
    and Mr Man will put a leather strap around your neck.

    If you are Mr Man,
    you will have lots of rabbits to eat
    and leads to put on dogs.
    But Mr Teacher will put a cage in your brain
    so that you can dance in his circus.
