Prague Alchemical Kabbala -- Golem, a Hebrew word, has been translated as embryo, primitive matter, and man without intelligence. Animating lifeless matter is prevalent in the texts of the Kabbala. With the help of the appropriate ritual and the secrets prescribed by the texts it is possible to create a soulless human from simple primitive matter such as clay. Hence the Golem in Prague was created by Rabbii Loew out of clay but has unfortunately got loose and to this day runs amok in Prague.
