They say that a mind in boredom is the playground of the devil. That maybe is the reason why eating the Apple at the Garden of Eden is justified. Adam and Eve were so bored of their eternal paradisiacal grind in the garden that eating the apple is more exciting than heeding the imperative.
Who doesn’t get bored, anyway. Do you know that even doing the most exciting things you’ve been doing is getting boring over time? Back and forth to work is one thing, and doing your daily mediocrity is double the whammy.
