In Pythagorean belief, and possibly Orphic Hellenic belief, the Pythagorean concept of One is a force from which all in the cosmos sprung, even Gods and Daemons. I tend to view this force as somewhat identical to some (Taoists have various beliefs) Taoist interpretations of Tao, or the Way.
I call this event the first will, or fist desire, Pythagoras calls this the law. This law binds men, Gods, Daemons, animals, and all other beings in the cosmos. I also believe that this is why reincarnation takes place, since I consider the original purpose of life in this cosmos to have been becoming as Gods.
Here are some of the Pythagorean verses:
- First worship the Immortal Gods, as they are established and ordained by the Law.
- Reverence the Oath, and next the Heroes, full of goodness and light.
- Honour likewise the Terrestrial Daemons by rendering them the worship lawfully due to them.
- You shall be a God, immortal, incorruptible, and Death shall have no more dominion over you.
You can google them yourself, I don’t interpret them literally, and the “Law” referred to is what I consider the first will.
