God charges Adam to tend the garden in which they live, and specifically commands Adam not to eat from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. Eve is questioned by the serpent concerning why she avoids eating from this tree. In the dialogue between the two, Eve elaborates on the commandment not to eat of its fruit. She says that even if she touches the fruit she will die. The serpent responds that she will not surely die, rather she and her husband would "be as gods, knowing good and evil," and persuades Eve to eat from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. Eve eats and gives the fruit to Adam, who also eats. At this point the two become aware, "to know good and evil," evidenced by an awareness of their nakedness. God then finds them, confronts them, and judges them for disobeying.
So what if…
What if the deal was this; first man was ‘in bliss’ more basic and instinctual and as man progressed, knowledge became organic. The problem is the Powers can’t control free thinkers so a story was made, a story of a serpent in a happy place called Eden that says ‘look if you think for your selves and explore good and evil, I will judge you and you will not like it.’
So what if the old dragons where those people who saw clearly and looked into the tree of knowledge, the tree of life, to know good and evil or the Tao – the balance of energies.
- verb δρακεῖν (drakeîn) "to see clearly”
- The serpent responds … (sic ) they would… "be as gods, knowing good and evil," and persuades Eve to eat from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil.
- Good and Evil are opposites

Consider it that serendipity is thought of to be just a state of being open to what appears before you. That when one has a preconceived notion they then close off many other possibilities. If in the quantum unfolding of our reality with our subconsciousness we are open to possibilities - what manifests then? We reap what we sew, we become what we think, congito ergo sum.
There is an under pinning in the fabric of my Being that has these thoughts swirling around and pinned to these thoughts that hold up my imago of me is a curiosity that is bigger of what if I am right that has become bigger than the fear or concern of what if I am wrong.
I would rather be judged on the sincerity of my questions rather than the inaction of my Soul.
