THE GARDEN
Natural means to a natural end.
God to walk with Man in a world of natural delights,
guilt brings exile, blame ushers the first death.

THE DESERT
Supernatural means to a natural end.
Man to pursue God in a world of natural defects,
guilt brings the first death, blame ushers the second death.

THE RIVER
Supernatural means to a supernatural end.
God slain by man in a world of supernatural defects,
sacrifice ends the second death, aseticism ends the first death.

THE SEED
Natural means to a supernatural end.
Man realizes God-self in a world of supernatural delights,
sacrifice buries guilt, asceticism dodges blame.

The End
