One such example is Hugo Ball’s Karawane, the text of which in part reads, ‘hollaka hollala / anlogo bung / blago bung / blago bung.’ From Ball’s perspective, the impulse to stand on stage and address an audience with sounds and gibberish was a reaction to the society that led to World War I. Such a bankrupt society deserved meaningless poetry.

“I have once again created a set of financial hands for sale. These are special conjure bags that are in the grip of gator claws. I have been offering these once a year or so for several years, and they have helped a lot of people draw money, obtain employment, get promoted, start businesses and so on. In the past I have offered a Red and Green design for either fast action or longer term work. This is the first time, and maybe the only time, that I am offering the Black Series.
These are not evil, but they are wrathful. They will work for you no matter what. They will kick ass and take names, and not let anyone or anything stand in the way of your success.
They are the perfect conjure hand for the fiscal apocalypse.” [via]
“Just a note that there are still seven Black Series Financial Hands left.
Someone asked me what I meant by “wrathful” in relation to these conjure hands. There are three qualities that play a role here.
1. Wrath is action: It is more active than other types of magic that approach it from a more peaceful perspective. You could use the word forceful or ruthless as well as wrath.
2. Outer Obstacles: If there are people keeping you from your goal, the hand will work to remove them.
3. Inner Obstacle: If your bad habits, weaknesses, and propensity for inaction are keeping you from realizing your goals the hand will do what it can to kick you in the pants. It won’t hurt you, and it won’t kill anyone, but it will shake things up.” [via]
“As new energy and expanded awareness is experienced and increasingly rooted to daily life, the ego and all that it has built up begins to feel threatened. The new ways of living, feeling, praying, loving, and being are so different, even if in reality they are only minor initiations so to speak, from the ego’s perspective, they might as well be an intrapsychic coup d’etat!” [via]
“How one makes these attempts at parallels between the Tree of Life and psychological models such as presented by Psychosynthesis is somewhat arbitrary. Exact matches across the board rarely occur. Function is what designates similarity, and function in Kabbalah is often a matter of perspective more than anything else. Several models exist for placing the Worlds on the Tree as well as their psycho-spiritual functions. The models put forth by Z’ev ben Shimon Halevi are quite different from the generally accepted Golden Dawn models of the psyche. However, since it is these models, derived from interpretations of late 19th and early 20th century British occultism that most students are familiar with, it is their designations of the Worlds and Sepherotic functions that will be applied.” [via]
