“Abraxas” / Memorable Fancies #2422

[“The acephalic god first appeared on a third- or fourth-century Gnostic stone, an abraxas.” – Kathy Acker]

An ‘abraxas’ is defined as a stone, etc., carved with the magical word ‘abraxas.’ Apparently, the only purpose of these stones was to display this word and its headless god, and the only purpose of the word was to identify the stones bearing it.

How much circular futility do you see in – our world, too? Are we just another abraxas?
