Proclus: Likeness and Reversion

Πᾶσα ἐπιστροφὴ δι’ ὁμοιότητος ἀποτελεῖται τῶν ἐπιστρεφομένων πρὸς ὃ ἐπιστρέφεται.

All reversion is accomplished through a likeness of the reverting terms to the goal of reversion.

Proclus, Elements of Theology, prop. 32

This is why the philosopher’s goal is to become like the Gods, insofar as possible.
