From the Essential of Plotinus by Elmer O’ Brien

5. There are two wrongs the soul commits. The first is its descent; the second, the evil done after arrival here below.

The first is punished by the very conditions of its descent. Punishment for the second is passage once more into other bodies, there to remain at greater less length according to the judgment of its deserts. (Judgment indicates that this takes place as a result of divine law.)

If however, it’s perversity goes beyond all measure, the soul incurs an even more severe penalty administered by avenging daimons.
