The nine "gods" symbolize the nine energy bodies of the Creator. In depicting the "gods" in the body of a human being, the ancients had no intention of saying that the "gods" were beings with human form. The depiction of bodies is used only to explain that the reference is to something that relates to human beings, to their physical shell and energy bodies.
In the work known as The Chapters of Coming Forth by Day there are texts that retain traces of the "KA-BA-LA-ON" doctrine.

"Truly I say, o Osiris, I am the spiritual body [sakh] of a god:"
In many hymns we can find these words:
"your covering is before my gaze; may all his body resemble the body of a god.
You created a covering for me; I created for you a covering, the divine soul."
Hermetic texts  present an astonishing picture of "seven heavens", seven circles or seven Rulers (the seven energy bodies of the Universe and the human being, as planes of existence and at the same time containing the matrices of the seven centres of the human endocrine system).
"And this ruler of the world (ON) and of beings mortal and silent through the universal connections and the strong structure of circles showed to Nature below the beautiful image of Go9d. Before this wondrous beauty, where all the energies of the "seven Rulers" were united in the form of God...
