Consider the 'Curse/proclaimation' of the Ouroboros in Genesis 3:14-19.

The Serpent biting its own tail is first seen as early as 1600 years BC in Egypt. From there it moved to the Phonecians and then to the Greeks, who called it the Ouroboros, which means devouring its tail.

The Ouroboros has several meanings interwoven into it. Foremost is the symbolism of the serpent biting, devouring, eating its own tail. This symbolises the cyclic Nature of the Universe: creation out of destruction, Life out of Death. The Ouroboros eats its own tail to sustain its life, in an eternal cycle of renewal. Christ died in order to live, etc...

Genesis 3:14-19 is simply articulating the Ouroboros principle.

How?

1) Because of disobediance (Gods Will) mankind subjected itself to the polarization cycle of Good and Evil, Ebb and Flow, Death and Rebirth, Ying/Yang, etc... Adam and Eve ATE of the tree of GOOD AND EVIL.
You are what you eat.

The fruit from Tree of Life represents Unity, Purity, The Monad, The void, etc...
This was the food of 'prefallen man'.
The fruit from Tree of Good and Evil represents Plurality, Impurity, The Dyad, the world of change. In ancient philosophy it was understood that The Monad begot The Dyad and polarized the Cosmos.
You are what you eat.

2) God's partner in crime (the serpent principle of the Ouroboros, The Dyad) caused the world to enter into polarization (sin).

- The curse of the serpent is to 'Eat the dust'.
- The curse of the Woman is to produce 'life via pain'.
- The seed of the woman is LIFE. Eve's name means 'mother of life'.
- The seed of the serpent is DEATH(polarization).
- LIFE siezes the head of DEATH, while death siezes the tail of life.
- Man returns to the dust which the serpent perpetually eats.

So the Lord God said to the serpent: "Because you have done this, You are CURSED more than all cattle, And more than every beast of the field; ON YOUR BELLY you shall go, And you shall EAT DUST All the days of your life. And I will put enmity Between you and the woman, And between your SEED and her SEED ; He shall SEIZE your HEAD, And you shall SEIZE His TAIL:" To the woman He said: "I will greatly multiply your sorrow and your conception; In pain you shall bring forth children; Your desire shall be for your husband, And he shall rule over you." Then to Adam He said, "Because you have heeded the voice of your wife, and have eaten from the tree of which I commanded you, saying, 'You shall not eat of it': "Cursed is the ground for your sake; In toil you shall eat of it All the days of your life. 18 Both thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you, And you shall eat the herb of the field. In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread Till you RETURN TO THE GROUND, For out of it you were taken; For DUST you are, And to DUST you shall return." And Adam called his wife's name Eve, because she was the MOTHER OF ALL LIVING."

Also notice how the food that man must now eat becomes 'herbs and bread', i.e. Passover food.

The reason that the passover bread of Exodus was 'unleavened' was to represent Unity and Purity, symbolizing the pure fruit from the Tree of Life.
Christ as the Bread of Life and The Lamb of God is also metaphorically the fruit from the Tree of Life. We eat of The Tree of Life when we bind the serpent Ouroboros.
You are what you eat.

Rev 2:
"He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will grant to eat of the tree of life which is in the Paradise of God."

peace,
