On the sixth day god created mankind in his own image. And he gave fruit and seed-bearing plants to the human being (Gen I). Such man was living eternally, but once they ate from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil (and entered dualism and mental discrimination), death came into their lives (Gen II).
Actually, only death came to them only after some 950 years (Gen V) of living and they were also eating the plants from the field, which they had to grow under hard labor because of knowing good and evil (Gen III). I believe, we can we can go back if we graduate before the cherubim with the flaming sword, which might be a symbol for the enlightened intellect. So, in other words, one could say, once we have transcendet our egos and released the illusion of ego-based individuality and stopping our deluded identification as someone being separated from god, we could go back to the tree of life and take part in immortality.

Genesis I, 29 “Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. 30 And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move along the ground—everything that has the breath of life in it—I give every green plant for food.” And it was so.”
Genesis II, 8 “Now the Lord God had planted a garden in the east, in Eden; and there he put the man he had formed. 9 The Lord God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground—trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food.”[…] 16 “And the Lord God commanded the man, “You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; 17 but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die.”” […]
“22 And the Lord God said, “The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever.”23 So the Lord God banished him from the Garden of Eden to work the ground from which he had been taken. 24 After he drove the man out, he placed on the east side[e] of the Garden of Eden cherubim and a flaming sword flashing back and forth to guard the way to the tree of life.”
Genesis III, 17 “17 To Adam he said, “Because you listened to your wife and ate fruit from the tree about which I commanded you, ‘You must not eat from it,’ “Cursed is the ground because of you; through painful toil you will eat food from it all the days of your life. 18 It will produce thorns and thistles for you, and you will eat the plants of the field. 19 By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food until you return to the ground, since from it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you will return.”
