I'm not surprised. Returning to something which is symbolic would, I
suspect, be impossible. My own take of the Garden of Eden equates it
with the World of Briah in Kabbalism, which is a real place in a
different dimension, akin in some ways to the theosophical Devachan.

For the record, the "myth" of the Garden of Eden is part of the same
esoteric tradition as Kabbalism, which helps me to be a great and wise
person in these matters. I realise that this last statement will
generate huge amounts of negative karma. If you find this happens, I
suggest you don't read it.
