Texts from a pothead kabbalist

Recanati, on Exodus 13:9

וטעם הנחת תפילין של יד קודם של ראש, ארמוז לך בו סוד גדול במשנה תורה בגזירת האל, כי העולה עולה מלמטה למעלה והיורד יורד מלמעלה למטה, על כןתפלה של יד ראוייה להיות קודמת בהנחה ומתאחרת בשעה שחולצן.

I've got a big secret for you man
really
secret of the UNIVERSE
you're stoned again aren't you
the one who ascends, right
he goes from low to high
and the one who descends
he goes from high to low
a profound statement indeed
and that's why you should put on the shel yad first and take it off last
of course, yes
fundamental truth of the universe man
you got any snacks?
I bet you've got snacks
I'm coming over
