The following is the definition of evil [in contrast to the idea of good and bad] as defined by ‘spirits’ according to Mr. Eugène Nus.
Jean-Baptiste Eugene Nus (Chalon-sur-Saone, November 21, 1816-Cannes, January 18, 1894), was a French playwright, novelist, and poet . Editor of La Démocratie pacifique, after the revolution of 1848, he founded in 1872 the newspaper Le bulletin du mouvement social. He was, moreover, a famous theorist of spiritualism.
We have included the definition because it clearly makes the difference between the idea of 'bad' which tends to be a personal assessment of a situation - how something affects someone personally - to something more subtle
discord between the effects and the divine cause.
