Background

A description of the experience

Festus - I - Philip James Bailey

God. Nor he, nor any soul were saved,
had not the world's original evil, by my decree
From all time framed, been capable of use,
With good compatible.

Evil is not a power
By one mind miscreate, malevolent grown,
Against my Will, foisted into the world:
But of defectible nature born,
were't not of greater ultimate gain than present grief,
To soul free, answerable, or than could else be,
 it had never been; rest sure.

Evil o'erruled to good, transmute to use
Most fit whereby to administer the world spiritual;
 

The source of the experience
