The meaning of Genesis 3 can be found in All areas of life. The Ouroboros and the yin-yang symbol is the best representation of Genesis 3 in other cultures and ideologies.
The ubiquitous yin-yang symbol holds its roots in Taoism/Daoism, a Chinese religion and philosophy. The yin, the dark swirl, is associated with shadows, femininity, and the trough of a wave; the yang, the light swirl, represents brightness, passion and growth.
The ouroboros is an ancient symbol of a snake or serpent eating its own tail, variously signifying infinity and the cycle of birth and death.
Genesis 3 accounts the Birth and Death of all of us if we are prior to being Rectified back to God. Genesis 3 as you will see is about the death of Light into the Birth of darkness. Using Scripture in both the New Testament as well as Torah, you will fully understand the duality of the system known as the Host Body or Human Being. Once you are Rectified back to God, your light Shines bright for all the world to see.
