                                                I finally know what a persimmon is. One time I found a tree in my neighborhood growing these things, and I took a bite since I didn't know what it was, and I thought it made my mouth numb from how intense the dryness was.

                                                      I was looking for comments on that voice of ghosts. Which came all time to annoy me.

                                                        The audience voice is annoying and distracting. We come here to see fruit get chopped not random people talk and make sounds while the fruit get's chopped.

It is the tree of knowledge and the fruit of knowledge. It is symbolic. It stands for curiosity, doubt and research. Knowledge or "Science" (curiosity, experimenting, searching truth) is the direct opposite of blind believe. It is also the direct enemy of every god or dictator. Thinking for oneself is not appreciated by god or dictators, when it comes to dictators it's clear they don't want you to question and think but just blindly believe, because they lie. When it comes to god(s) ... what would be their reason to claim blind following and believing, esp. when having created humans, esp. when having them created as an image of his/her/themselves and giving them "free will".? But back to the topic, no explicit fruits were ever mentioned. And the fruit of knowledge is exactly what a sounds like, a symbol for the pursuit for knowledge and the outcome.

I’m not familiar with how to process this... wah, wah.... no Buddha’s hand. Pretty sure we can all cut watermelon, oranges, dragon fruit..... blah, blah, blah...
