So the creative beings created some little creatures in a special place, on that special planet. They were based in some small way on the beings' own pattern of existence. So the creatures could be creative by using their creativity and ingenuity in their own sort of technology and art. The key to these things was their capacity for language. In the beginning, their language had a rhythm and rhyme that was a union of art and existence, the symbol and the symbolized. They could talk to the Creator who came as being of light to the creatures and taught them about the place that had been made. Such perfection would be an echo and just remnants soon, stories to become legends to myths unto vague intuitions, as the rebellious beings came to the planet and began to fight what was happening there. They began to try to set things in motion that would cause created life to fail. Yet all that they did was redeemed into more life, there and then.
The creative beings had set aside a special garden on the planet where their creatures could learn from the Creator of their universe. One day the little creatures of the Creator were told to take over the planet, to civilize and subdue it. The fallen beings had begun to concentrate all their efforts on overcoming this new threat, these little redeemers. They managed to represent their type of being in some plants and then in some reptilian life too. The beings that represented themselves with light told the creatures not to eat that type of plant, lest they come to know the fallen. The leader of the fallen ones represented himself in reptilian life to tell the creatures that they would be as the beings of light if they would only eat its type of plant, a symbol of knowing its being. It was successful, as the little redeemers ate that which it represented itself with. The creatures did not used their capacity for language against it. That which was their closest link to the creative beings. Instead, they only listened.
After coming to know it, the creatures saw things differently and saw themselves differently, although not much in their garden had changed yet. They did not have the same eyes to see that they once had. There was something eating away at them faster than before. It was not being turned back to good there and then as it had been. It was winning more and more. It was the very thing they were meant to subdue which they had now let into themselves.
The Creator told them that they had killed themselves by eating it. But in their failure, the pattern of the Creator's redemption would only go farther and deeper. He said that some things would change because of their decision, yet they were still the type of creature through which he would destroy and redeem the work of the fallen. And for their sake he killed some animals, then showed them how to make use of the sacrifice by using the skins for clothing.
Although the beings of light were still active in the world they would be separate from the creatures now. The creatures left their garden and remembered the mercy of the Creator toward them through the sacrifice of animals, which symbolized his mercy to them and would come to symbolize more.
They remembered, yet were separated from the Creator and the beings of light now.
