Eating the forbidden fruit leads to a harsh “awakening” for the man and the woman: their eyes are opened to their nakedness. And they respond by shielding themselves from each other with clothes. And by hiding from God when they hear him nearby. They turn their backs on the intimacy with God and intimacy with each other that God had previously awakened them to. From the questions God asks and the answers they give, we begin to see what has and has not changed for humanity.
