I theorize that it is not the Tree of the knowledge of good and evil, but the tree of the CONCEPTION of good and evil. The myth is not telling us those things are real and we got punished for learning about them, but rather that they are not real, they only exist in our minds as impositions on reality, and the belief in good and evil are is a cause of unnecessary suffering.
