Not to make oneself not alive, but to see oneself as not alive, for if you already perceive yourself to be alive, when you are not, then you will never pull fruit from this tree.
Why would any body attempt to pick fruit from a tree, which is perceived to be bare?
The tree of life is is hidden behind the perception of a tree, which has no more fruit.
All Man had to show us was a picture of a tree with a limited amount of life, then stand behind the picture, and pull all the fruit.
