I heard Pullman on the radio and he said that His Dark Materials is about
the loss of innocence/growing up, but that his take on it is that it (the
loss) is not a bad thing, but quite the opposite, a good and positive one.
This is not the judeo-christian view; here, the loss of innocence was Bad,
because God told us not to. It does beg the question why he did that.
