The story of Adam and Eve is laden by centuries of commentary, but what is it really about? We are told that Adam and Eve first acquire language [Genesis 2:20] and then form the first marriage [Gen. 2:24]. But they lacked one thing more for the establishment of civilization: consciousness.
“You have seen all that God did in Egypt… Your own eyes saw the great miracles, signs and wonders. But until this day, God did not give you a heart to know, eyes to see, and ears to hear” [Deuteronomy 29:1-3].
