"The first situation was that of original innocence, in which man (male and female) was, as it were, outside the sphere of the knowledge of good and evil . . . The second situation . . . found himself, in a certain way, within the sphere of the knowledge of good and evil."
so original innocence is the state of knowing and doing good beyond even a certain knowledge itself? Is one so immersed in goodness that evil does not even enter his mind or heart? He is so fixed on goodness, evil doesnt occur to him, and even the good he accomplishes is in a sense effortless?
