What is a mistake? A walk through the garden with your eyes blinded by a scatter of thoughts and your hand stretched out; you don't feel it, you're searching for something, and your thoughts betray you.
We reach for the fruit of knowledge, as a temptation of the wild animal, the beast within us, convinces us to seek the advantage, while we banish ourselves from our own paradise.
