You are dust!

I heard someone talking about the "fall" of man and how G-d called Adam "dust".
Ouch! I thought to myself. How thou art fallen, O Image if G-d!

Having recently found the wonders hidden in the Hebrew Letter Pictures, I looked up the word for "dust".
Aphar, Ayin-Peh-Resh
As if G-d was saying, You see, you speak, and that is all you know!
What's missing?
Rabbi Shaul said, Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word (Torah) of G-d.
Moses said, Hear, O Israel, the L-rd, your G-d is One!
To hear G-d is to know G-d.
To not hear G-d is to be dust.
Dust you are, and unto dust you shall return!
