The question I ask is as follows: after Adam and Eva left Paradise what was left for the gods, how did they react, or what was left of their sense of being? Because they lost something too, they were as dependent on the humans as the humans were dependent on them.

The title refers to the epic poem Paradise Lost by John Milton.
