The Tree of knowledge is more than a metaphoric passage of the Chumash. It introduces a cosmic change in the nature of human consciousness.
Our dual nature, dual body parts e.g. two eyes, two ears, two nostrils, two hands, two feet etc. are spiritually mirrored by our inner duality of ego and other. All our thoughts, words and behaviour are either self-centred (self protection, survival, emotional gratification ) or other centred (empathy, compassion, sharing). These derive from our soul flows of Nefesh Behamit (self-centredness) and Nefesh Elokit (other-centredness). Likewise it plays out in our lifelong work of distinguishing right from wrong.
This spiritual duality was occasioned through the eating of the 'forbidden fruit' -- from the Tree of Knowledge. Prior to that the human being was in a state of true innocence. Even nakedness provided no cue for shame or embarrassment. Once the fruit was eaten, the sense of temptation entered into human existential condition. Since then the work of self-mastery has become a life-long process.
