      Fascinating read.

      A God Whose Name is 'Jealous'

      Temptation, Fall, and Expulsion from nature and sexual integration, into mortality through a Jealous God: Judeo-Christian and Islamic traditions explain our origin in the Eden myth, in which Eve and then Adam are cursed for eating the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, which Eve sought rather as the wisdom of the life tree, not knowing there were two. They are banished lest they also eat of the tree of life and become as God. For their 'concupiscence' in 'knowing' one another, barred from paradise as sexual mortals by a flaming sword, woman to suffer the travail pains of childbirth and to be ruled by her husband while man to conquers nature by the sweat of his brow. (Brothers Limbourg)

      "We Yolungu are a jealous people and have been since the days we lived in the bush in clans. We are jealous of our wife or husband, for fear she or he is looking at another. If a husband has several wives he is all the more jealous, and the wives are jealous of each other ... make no mistake, the big J is part of our nature" (Australian aboriginal).
