Primordial man knew by himself that God is; fallen man does not
know it; he must learn it.
man was always aware of God; fallen man, while having learned that
God is, must force himself to be aware of it always.
man loved God more than the world; fallen man loves the world more
than God, he must therefore practice renunciation.
man saw God everywhere, he had the sense of archetypes and of essences
and was not enclosed in the alternative "flesh or spirit";
fallen man sees God nowhere, he sees only the world as such, not
as the manifestation of God.
