Consider something. Adam and Eve were not made for this world but for God's private domain, the Garden. The Garden was not like the world we know for it did not have the ways of the world which were the self serving survival instincts of the creatures within. Good and evil relied on each other and were the foundation of this universe we now comprehend, but not of the Garden.
When Adam and Eve became self aware and used the knowledge of good and evil to self justify their actions, they no longer belonged in the Garden but had become one with the world which we all know, acting in the same way as the creatures within, but who were not, and are not self aware. Perhaps there is a clue here as to how the Adversary rebelled, and why it rules this domain.
Adam and Eve were cast out into this world of opposites, this world unlike the Garden or Heaven. The hope for many is that God can remedy our rebellious nature when we become aware His way trumps ours and we then repent of such. Until we can leave this universe which we now comprehend, we can never experience the Garden/Kingdom awaiting us. But we are to trust in Him over ourselves and chose His will over ours thus trying to live in the ways of the Kingdom, focusing on others over self.
