In science:

The conception of Einstein’s Theory of General Relativity in 1915 was deemed a theorist’s paradise, but an experimentalist’s nightmare.

We also saw that we are forced to loose the paradise of absolute small/big subsets, and have to work with relative size.

These states are called Garden of Eden (GoE) states or paradisical states since they have no predecessor.
Analytical approaches to CA for traffic flow: Approximations and exact solutions
One can therefore hope that by eliminating all GoE states and applying mean-field theory in the reduced configuration space (paradisical mean-field, pMF) one will find a considerable improvement of the MF results.
Analytical approaches to CA for traffic flow: Approximations and exact solutions
Comparison of the fundamental diagrams obtain from MC simulations with the results of mean-field theory (MF) and mean-field theory without GoE states (paradisical mean-field, pMF).
Analytical approaches to CA for traffic flow: Approximations and exact solutions
This is related to the fact that paradisical mean-field is exact in that case and both methods are able to identify all GoE states.
Analytical approaches to CA for traffic flow: Approximations and exact solutions
The simplest method is the so-called ’paradisical mean-field’ theory which is based on the observation that certain configurations (Garden of Eden states) can never be generated by the dynamical rules due to the use of parallel dynamics.
