“He recounted the story of Adam and Eve, who were banished
from paradise because of their curiosity. Their inability to resist
the temptation of the forbidden fruit. Which itself was a metaphorical
stand-in for knowledge and power. He urged us to find the restraint
needed to resist the temptation of the cube—the biblical apple
in modern garb. He urged us to remain in Eden until we were able
to work out the knowledge the apple offered, all by ourselves.”

— Richards, Douglas E.. The Enigma Cube  (Alien Artifact Book 1)
(pp. 160-161). Paragon Press, 2020. Kindle Edition.

The biblical apple also appears in the game, and film, Assassin’s Creed .
