Evola on Dr John Dunn. Leap clear

“Deification”or “Becoming God” is the central hermeneutical key to understanding Julius Evola’s (1898–1974) philosophic and, most importantly, esoteric work. One quotation selected by Evola from the Corpus Hermeticum, serves to flesh out a little of what he means by deification and why the initiate must pursue it as a goal.

If then you do not make yourself equal to God you cannot apprehend God; for like is known by like. Leap clear of all that is corporeal and make yourself grow to like expanse with that greatness which is beyond all measures ... For it is the height of evil not to know God. (Corpus Hermeticum, quoted by Evola in L’uomo come potenza, Man as Power).
