Lucifer Possesses a Plant?

Reading Paradise Lost Herbivorously

But the Devil did have some help, from scientists, as one might have expected, for knowledge through experience (and thus also through experiment?) goes all the way back to the Plant of the Knowledge of Good and Evil:
To create their glowing plants, the MIT team turned to luciferase, the enzyme that gives fireflies their glow. Luciferase acts on a molecule called luciferin, causing it to emit light. (Anne Trafton, "Engineers create plants that glow," MIT News, December 12, 2017)
We thus see that Lucifer is involved in this work of luminescent plants, as the two allusions to his name imply! But all will be for the best, as Mephistopheles tells us:
[Ich bin] Ein Teil von jener Kraft, / Die stets das Böse will und stets das Gute schafft.
[I am] Part of that power / that incessantly wills to do evil but unceasingly achieves the good. (Goethe, Faust, 1335-6)
But the Devil could be lying . . .

Possibility,and why God gives us "Free Will" to be evil? & good? Maybe we can identified the sanctify and sacredness ,and after sinned? The phenomena of this perfect Angel turning to be resister and choose a independent from YHWH God Almighty, and he prefers to be superstar and he wants to be rivals from God Almighty of the Universe, despite Satan know his destiny-second death for lake of fire and truly obsession for himself. *Bones*

Me too,that Satan have a limited time, according to Genesis 3:15 say Jehovah God will crush his head of Satan. And there will be a peace in the Paradise Regained. This is a positive step only Jehovah God Almighty know his time. *Bones*
