Heaven - The soul of an unborn child is taught the whole Torah while still in the womb. In a similar fashion Adam was taught the complete Torah, before his soul was blown in his nostrils, “And He blew into his nostrils the soul of life”. Why the nose, his mouth would speak slander, his eyes would blink for evil purposes, and his ears would hear blasphemies. The nose is the most important feature of the face, there can be no legal identification without the nose.
Adam saw the holiness of Gan Eden and realized that it would require a superior level of service. A crime committed in the king’s palace is graver then one committed anywhere else. Only after much persuasion did he let himself be place in Gan Eden.
Today Eretz Yisrael is the holiest of lands. Those living there should maintain themselves in the highest level of holiness, “My eyes are upon the faithful of the land”. However if they do not, “I will cut down all the wicked of the land, to excise all evildoers from the city of the Lord”.
