And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For the Ancient of Days doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.” (Genesis 3:4-5)

This passage shows there had already been made a distinction between “good and evil” although Adam and Eve were blind to it. It is knowledge which Adam and Eve desired, but knowledge in a forbidden way. This “fruit” of the tree of learning the knowledge of good and evil was not an apple. It was perhaps a sort of vine resembling a grape vine, and its fruit perhaps resembled a grape. Its fragrance extended to a considerable distance.

So what was the real temptation? What had Adam seen that he wanted? The temptation of the tree was to acquire a knowledge that Adam had seen. What knowledge could have been seen, or displayed by these Beney ‘Elohim (Fallen Angels the sons of God), and why was this knowledge forbidden to Adam? What did the Ancient of Days not want Adam to experience? Adam and Eve sort to acquire, a forbidden knowledge, something they saw displayed before them, something that could be eaten, something when eaten would, “make one wise”, and when one was “wise” it could in turn be seen, otherwise why would they have wanted it, remember Eve is attracted to the fruit, or perhaps to what happens when one eats the fruit?

The fruit of the forbidden tree was a hallucinogen, which caused an intense spiritual experience during which the user would feel contact with a greater spiritual or cosmic order. This experience was much like what users experience today using hallucinogens.

Just image these Beney ‘Elohim-Fallen Angels, staggering around “tripping out” while eating the fruit of the forbidden tree. Why they were allowed to do this we are not told, but it was expressly forbidden Adam and Eve.

Adam and Eve in eating the forbidden fruit were trying to access the divine in a “backdoor” manner. Their goal was to reach the Ancient of Days by an alternation of the prescribed route that is of waiting until the Ancient of Days had decided to come walking in the “cool of the day”.

Eve having taken the fruit gave to Adam beside her. They did eat. And the eyes of both were opened, and they perceived that they were naked, and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons to go round them. And they heard the voice of the Ancient of Days walking in the garden in the late afternoon or “cool of the day”. Both Adam and Eve hid themselves from the face of the Ancient of Days in the midst of the trees of the garden. And the Ancient of Days called to Adam and said to him, “Adam, where are you”? And Adam said to him, “I heard your voice as you walked in the garden, and I feared because I was naked and I hid myself”. And the Ancient of Days said to him, “who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten of the tree concerning which I told thee not to eat”? And Adam said, “The woman whom you gave me she gave me of the tree and I did eat”.
