What Happened from the Time Between Being Created and One-Second Before Eve Picked the Apple? | #MyFridayStory №283
(Spoiler Alert: I typed the question of today’s #MyFridayStory into Open AI’s Chat GPT with instructions to write this story. I’ve made some minor adjustments and added some bits of my own. I’m fascinated by where AI and the future of innovations like Chat GPT4 and others will take us. To me it’s as revolutionary as the invention of the printing press or the internet.)
Take a read, the AI response is on point.
I found myself contemplating what happened between the creation of Adam and Eve and the moment when Eve picked and bit the apple. What was the world like in that time? What did it feel like to be sinless? These were questions that I couldn’t shake, and so I decided to do a bit of research to try and answer them.
According to the Bible, the world was created in six days, and then Adam and Eve were created on the sixth day. From there, it’s difficult to say exactly how much time passed before the apple incident occurred. Some scholars believe it could have been mere days or weeks, while others suggest it may have been hundreds or even thousands of years.
Regardless of the precise timeline, it’s clear that the world would have been a very different place back then. For starters, there would have been no human civilization as we know it today. Adam and Eve were the first people, and they lived in the lush Garden of Eden. It was a paradise, with perfect weather, abundant food, and no sickness, death, or other forms of suffering.
Outside of the Garden, the world would have been a wild and untamed place. There were no cities, no roads, no cars, and no airplanes. Instead, there were vast forests, rolling hills, and towering mountains. Animals of all shapes and sizes roamed freely. It’s likely that Adam and Eve encountered everything from lions and tigers to elephants and giraffes.
Of course, one of the biggest differences between the world then and now was the absence of sin. In the Garden of Eden, there was no evil, no jealousy, and no hatred. Adam and Eve lived in perfect harmony with each other and with God. They had no need for clothing, as they were unashamed of their nakedness. They spent their days tending to the garden and exploring the wonders of creation.
It was a time of innocence, of wonder, and of perfect communion with God.
Adam and Eve had everything they needed, and they lacked for nothing. They had each other, the beauty of nature, and the presence of their Creator. It was a time of joy, of peace, and of contentment. It was a time of perfection and purity. It was a time when everything was as it should be, and there was no pain, suffering, or evil.
But as we know that time is gone,
Eve was tempted by the serpent, and she ate from the forbidden tree — The of Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. Adam followed suit, and in that moment, sin entered the world. Suddenly, the innocence of Eden was lost. Adam and Eve were filled with shame and guilt. They were expelled from the garden, and from that moment on, suffering entered the world.
The human-condition. The fall of mankind. We effed it up.
It’s sad that you and I can’t love each other and get along.
Try reliving that time from when you were born until you first lost your child-like innocence. Be like Adam and Eve first were. No hatred, no jealousy, no shame, no guilt.
May you live a life of awe and wonder like Adam and Eve lived until one-second before Eve picked the apple.
Have an awesome weekend and please be generous! 😄
