The expulsion from paradise

The Expulsion from Paradise is eternal in its principal aspect: this makes it irrevocable, and our living in this world inevitable, but the eternal nature of the process has the effect that not only could we remain forever in Paradise, but that we are currently there, whether we know it or not.

— Kafka, The Zürau Aphorisms (tr. M. Hamburger)
