What does "will to power and independence" as "diabolical" mean?

Hi Folks,

I am new here and I am going to post a few questions that would be good to have clarified. Note: I loved the book.

On page 126 of my paperback edition, Papa describes the "will to power and independence" as "diabolical". What does Papa mean by this? (I know the definition of diabolical, I would just like a more indepth explanation)

Man's desire for power and independence from God was put into Eve's mind by Satan. It is against God's plan for us.
It is no longer I who lives, but Christ who lives in me.
