I liked Ravel while growing up as a music student. What I didn’t know then (that I do now) was that he was into Gnosticism, Alchemy, Kabbalah, Witchcraft and Luciferianism. These obsessions he shared with a great many famous musicians, artists and writers of the time into present day. The widdershins magic can be heard in his most famous piece “Bolero”. Kabbalah, in particular, is very much about musical tones and how they evoke the names of God, the angels, and even demons. “Bolero” seems to be an early experiment in a kind of MK ULTRA programming (before there was an MK ULTRA), which is akin to a practice called Neuro-linguistic Programming. The creators of this practice even equate it to magic. Indeed it is also one of the building blocks of Stanislavki’s method. In one “acting exercise”, two people face each other and just repeat the same observations of one another until something “new” happens. Supposedly it was supposed to make you AWARE of your partner and surroundings. It was really something else altogether and I knew it when I was in the acting scene. I mean, constantly repeating “You are wearing a Blue Shirt” to your acting partner is anything but acting. So you can imagine my surprise at the confirmation I received when I saw these same type of exercises listed in Franz Bardon’s “Initiation into Hermetics”
I’ll have to look into the musical structure of Bolero’s repeating theme to build an hypothesis on what “name” is being repeated in his one line of repeating music.
Anyway, upon its debut it disturbed its audience quite a bit. One story even told of a woman falling into a panic attack and screaming, “He is mad! Ravel is mad!”.
That is how I felt when watching POPPY. All the same old tricks that Ravel used over a hundred years ago now remade anew.
You can read an interesting interpretation of the Poppy phenomenon HERE at Vigilant Citizen.
She has over 50 videos much like the one above, repeating lines in a magical fashion and in general being wacky. But nothing she does is new. As we can see the occultists who infect our culture have been doing the same junk since 1900s and earlier.
