Are you an “electrate Ulmerian”? Get five sequential spaces and yell out—no, not “Bingo!”—“Eureka!” Use the Bingo card as you would the I-Ching or Tarot cards—to find unexpected patterns of thought and discovery that draw first from your own experience. Use this Bingo card as Ulmer would, following Basho: “Not to follow in the footsteps of the Masters, but [to] seek what they sought.”
