Iamblichus De Anima fragment

There are some who maintain that all parts of this incorporeal substance are alike and one and the same, so that the whole exists in any part of it. They even place in the individual soul the Intelligible World, the Gods, the Daimons, the Good, and all Races superior to the soul. . . . According to this view, the soul, considering its entire essence is in no way different from the Nous, the Gods, or the Superior Races (Stobaeus Anth. 1.365.7-21)
