That possessed by humans
. The product of this wisdom
appears to be "Science"
, which is praised by Gendou Ikari
as "the power of man,"
but ridiculed by Kouzou Fuyutsuki
as "the cause of Second Impact".
If so then Eva
and the Instrumentality
Project are also the products of this wisdom. According to the book of Genesis
in the Old Testament
, at the centre of the Garden of Eden
next to the Tree of Life
was also a Tree of Wisdom
-- a Tree
of the knowledge of good and evil
s disobeyed God'
s command and ate of its fruit
, so God banished humans from the Garden of Eden
and imposed many discomforts upon them. Does this mean that humans are beings that were banished
from the Garden
in exchange for obtaining wisdom
