Understanding The Knowledge Of Good and Evil
What is the justification for calling anything good or evil? What concrete evidence sustains such judgments? If based on the Bible’s “Knowledge Of Good And Evil” it requires analyzing to justify those judgments.
Before we can understand the concepts of “good and evil” the man specie has to be understood. That is only be done by understanding the spiritual meaning for man and its divisions.
Man mean, “minds able to comprehend all things” with a lesser aspects meaning, “mind unable to comprehend all things” written human and woman although they have different prefixes. The prefix “hu” means “hewed by blows…” while the “wo” prefix means “woven from…” and what make them lesser aspects. [The Bible’s metaphor as interpreted below reveals why.] With man and the lesser aspects being the specie our divisions for pre puberty man are babies, children and adolescents or pre adults, and pubescent man are girls and boys.
Therefore, I use man as the plural specie and also woman.
Food For Thought
Moses was to tell Jacob’s descendants I AM THAT I AM sent him because after living 400 years in Khemet ISIS would be the name of god they would recognize and both meanings are the same. Those names suggest god is the founder and producer of all things, that from god came everything, unto god all things returns and god do everything ever done as Isaiah 45:7 reveals.
Yoshua the Christ said a single tree does not produce “good and bad” fruit that should make us understand having a “tree of good and evil” allows neither to have a recognizable foundation, that it requires one tree to produce good and another evil for them to be recognized by everyone alike. That invalidates Adam and Eve’s eating “the knowledge of good and evil” made man to fall out of favor with god.
“Man” is synonymous with god is why Yoshua often himself “son of man” and “son of god” interchangeably when talking about himself. God is what man become once we complete our learning for leaving earth.
Understanding "Tree" and "Knowledge"
Trees are plant kingdom beings of two primary types, evergreen and seasonal, which are symbols for man to understand something about life. The names of their types are symbols, evergreen for “everlasting life” and seasonal for “reincarnation.” They each grow more each year and after fruit bearing age they produce more fruit each season, thus, the reason for using tree as the producer of good and evil.
“Knowledge” is a title given to something by man; trees for example, and usually are recognized by the names of their reproductive properties or fruit, so to send someone who has never seen, for example, coconuts to get some would not know what to look for. Example.
I was born in Louisiana and raised in Texas where the only thing I knew about coconuts was the inner hard shell. My trips to Vietnam did not bring me in contact with them on trees or in its outer shell. I became a nomad at age 31 and went to Florida and asked someone what were those things on a tree. I was so surprised when he opened the outer shell and presented me the hard shell I knew as cocoanuts. I had knowledge of cocoanuts but nothing of the outer shell or appearance on a tree. So knowledge only means to have heard of, seen or something else relative to it but it does not mean having details concerning it. So how can we determine what is good or evil by reading how someone ate from the tree of it without seeing the tree, its fruit and other property? We cannot.
Interpreting The Good And Evil Metaphor
NOTE: Written without gender pronouns until the second person is present.
EVIL; “that which the physical senses determines man disapprove of.”
GOOD; “that which man’s physical senses determines is approved.”
KARMA and REAPING WHAT WAS SOWN; “an actions performed by every living being, defined as IT IS; and the act one imposes on another will be or has been performed by the life force of the receiver or giver of it.”
OBJECTIVE; “recognizing all things have purpose and resolving to determine their purposes regardless of sense perception: the Bible calls it ‘the narrow way with a straight gate’ and the Buddha calls it ‘the middle path’.”
TIMELINE; “the set sequence every life force incarnate as every attribute and behavior of all species of earth.”
To make sense of the “tree of the knowledge of good and evil” we must find a logical explanation by analyzing what is and is not written in Genesis 1-3. I’ve determined man lived ecologically without fire, shelter or clothes except hair like the other animals during those 7 days (Daniel 4:33) I consider millenniums between this civilization and Revelation 21’s.
On the sixth day both genders of man were made with dominion power or the ability to exceed all life and, with the Bible written about a cycle, I suggest they then began eating and procreating to replenish the earth. They were instructed to eat from every seed producing plant that the seeds reproduce the plant.
After the seventh day of rest came the announcement “these are the generations of the heavens and earth when they were created” without rain or plants although plants were produced on the third day. From the dust of earth a single man was formed and a garden planted for its place with fruit trees of many types, including “the tree of life” and “the tree of the knowledge of good and evil” eatable for man mingled among the others but instructed eat not “the knowledge of good and evil” to avoid dying.
The birds and animals are then produced from the earth for naming although they were produced on days five and six. Man’s naming them allowed witnessing their group living and reproducing that induced the desired in Adam, so it was reasoned, “it is not good for man to live alone” and a “help meet” was made to accommodate it. With the wording saying a deep sleep overtook the man it suggests man did not know it before it happen.
Adam’s statement “this is now bone of my bone, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was [woven] out of man” is not agreeing with the writing suggests a dream. Being a dream means Adam renamed both of them and everyone born to them woman because what is woven out of and what was woven from are both incomplete. The reading “therefore shall a man [meaning to become man again] leave [their] father and mother, and shall cleave to [their spouse]: and the two shall be[come] one [in their] flesh” proves all are woman.
Adam and Eve and their descendants taught girls don’t do boys things and boys don’t do girls things to keep the genders from developing attributes different from their bodies’ designs, girls have the feminine design and boys the masculine, makes the statement to mean both are to “become whole man” upon leaving parental teaching and developing both gender attributes in themselves.
They did die after eating the knowledge of good and evil, the spiritual death of being unable to comprehend all things, but not the physical death. Since written is “it is appointed unto man once to die and after that the judgment” it is saying man’s becoming woman is a death, including everyone killed in the great flood. That means “the judgment” is woman metamorphosing back into man for entering everlasting life the writing called eating from the “tree of life.” Their eating from the “the knowledge of good and evil” was a metamorphosis. Thus, what is generally called “death” is discarnating or the shedding of one body and personality to prepare to incarnate into another body and personality. After the New Birth metamorphosing man remember the experiences of their previous incarnation and obtain “dominion powers” as “sons of god.”
The writings only tell us a serpent persuaded Eve to eat the knowledge but not what happened, so reason with me.
It is written, “be wise as a serpent and as harmless as a dove” so the serpent was a wise being instructing Eve to recognize the opposites. Had she been objective she would have eaten from “the tree of life” and sought understanding for their purposes, instead, she made judgments and like or dislike things based on sense perceptions that produced judgmental adjectives. So we have good and evil without concrete evidence to support their existence and as long as man and their off springs use those terms we are woman eating “the knowledge of good and evil.”
By reincarnation and because dominion means, “to exceed the ability of,” every man life force has incarnated as every life type on earth. The days of creation gives us a glimpse of the “timeline” sequence all life forces evolves through every earth bound life type before becoming man. Each specie have a multitude of attributes called personalities which life forces must incarnate as before evolving to another specie. Each species survives by consuming others or something of other species. Because of judging good and evil man have “emotional baggage”, which also appear to be in domesticated life, causing problems in life. We don’t remember past incarnations allowing the life force to experience the exact opposite “karma” so the life force will know both sides of the experiences, thus, remembering that all man life-forces will become man again to regain “dominion powers” prior to leaving earth.
“I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things” is written in the present tense. There is a cycle governing man consisting of a spiritual civilization (Revelation 21) and this material one that biblical and other metaphors suggest is 182,000 years divided by two 7000-year transitions without a beginning or end. The foregoing interpretations explain the foundation that began today’s civilization and others foretell its termination. What is written above reveals no life forces are lost because it is done by what is called god through us, so be not discouraged, your day to survive it will come.
