Well just take a look at the Baphomet of Mendez.

There entire scope of its being is about equality. Balance.

It sits in total harmony as its right hand touches upon the light, and the left touches within the dark. The torch upon its head is also a symbol that it has reached a divine state of being. Showing that its energies are connected with that above, yet that below.

If a person can learn to live life in this state it is in my opinion that their divine state of being can accelerate into a divinity of sorts.

Can that be cured with common antibiotics?

Divinity is often lumped with religion as a way for people to make themselves feel good about themselves. I can see merit in living your life in that way but I think I'll stick to my path as it's more beneficial to me, and that's all that matters really.

Hmmm....? Levi's Baphomet does depict a relationship between opposing forces and the effects they have on the 'being' or 'soul' of the individual or magician.
I think the central them of the image is the attainment of wisdom through interaction with universal forces.
This wisdom being the understanding of the true nature of man, a beast that is capable of experiencing and manipulating the universe. I personally don't relate either of these opposing forces to a divine being or resulting in an experience of divinity (in a sense of godliness). Perhaps 'universal awareness' may be a better term, I don't know?

No, there really isn't.

Do you even know what you are actually talking about?
I mean, "attainment of wisdom through interaction with universal forces" or what is your "universal awareness"?
If that could be translated to common sensible sentences, then it would probably mean something, but currently it sounds like the common blabber religious leaders also tend to use to make them seem more "enlightened".

Could you possibly explain how you personally interact with universal forces to attain wisdom and become more aware?
