Souls can become heroes through faith and good works.
A soul and Daemon working together can finally understand the theophany that is the entire universe.
The paradox or Greek koan is solved: You ascend to divinity by descending into matter and allowing the gods to work through you (through their agents, the Daemon and Demiurge).
