Administering Disorder through Order to keep the Sacred Chao balanced.

If you're not familiar with Discordianism, you're probably wondering what the hell this board is all about, so I'm going to lay things straight so you can get your bearings amongst the confusion.

>What the fuck IS Discordianism?

Long story short, Discordianism is a semi-joke religion that started in the early 60's based around the ancient Greek Goddess of Chaos, Confusion, and Discord. Starting religions was a popular hobby back then, so a couple of guys got together, made their own holy text, passed it around, and many people had great fun with it.

>So what's it all about then?

You should probably read the thing yourself at principiadiscordia.com, but the basic point is that disorder has gotten an undeserved bad rap, and that putting order always before disorder denies us the creative aspects of disorder and ties us to the destructive aspects of order. tl;dr: we should all probably lighten the fuck up and think about what we're doing for a second before we do it

>Say, you're not trying to convert me, are you?

Hell no. There's some interesting ideas in here but I would not recommend actually being a Discordian to anyone who wasn't essentially one already anyway. Everybody's welcome to post here though. We don't even demand you make much sense.

>What is this "fnord" thing that you people keep going on about?

Fnord is a nonsense word in the Principia that was turned into an allegory by Robert Shea and Robert Anton Wilson (five names!) in their "Illuminatus! Trilogy". In the book it's described how a hypnotic device would be brought into classrooms where young children would be taught that "If you don't see a FNORD, it can't eat you. Don't see the FNORDS!" Thus an entire populace would be given a trigger word that could be inserted into media, and those seeing it would immediately forget they saw it but be left with a sense of apprehension and anxiety. This is how the shadowy government controlled the populace in the novels, but it's much more simple in real life. Humans come with built-in exploitable reactions already, the fnords in real Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

Are my tinnitus and cluster headaches Goddess- related? I've learned to love those, but I feel it'd be more effective if she spoke madness to me in aesthetically pleasing ways that didn't require learning to love.

Luckily, I simply adore the hallucinations and Alice in Wonderland syndrome.

Other than following the global site rule, I ask only that if you're going to spam, try to be creative about it. To this end, I've enabed the ROBOT9000 script so that posts must be unique. This means that image posts need some kind of text in the post as well, because the script ignores images.

Any meta discussion about the board should probably go here as well. Seems like a good place for it. At least elsewhere it may or may not go unnoticed. Good plan. I'm glad we had this talk.

Here are the two most amusing books Discordianism has to offer; The Principia Discordia describes and outlines the religion, and The Black Iron Prison describes the prison of 'self' in which all organisms necessarily exist.

These books and more can also be found at principiadiscordia.com. If you have any material you'd like to post here, please do!

/eris/ (like /r/discordian) puts Discordianism in a heavily centralized position, which is heavily hypocritical when it comes to the Discordian Hierarchy.

Now since hypocrisy is a huge part of Discordianism, I'll let it slide, but don't make the same mistake twice!

In this thread people come up with ways to create CHAOS in their lives.

Method 1.

When a bus drives past you, throw it with your mobile device.

Method 2.

Tell all your friends you got locked up in a mental hospital and disappear for a month.

Method 3.

Find a new addiction. Preferably something non-addictive.

Method 4.

Print some missing-posters with your face.

Method 5.

Try a career in politicks

Yea, ik. You are just reiterating words you red in some book.

What I was trying to say, that discordians see disorder as a balancing action for a reason. The church doesn't need balance, outside world does. The church is very ordely and balanced. Even decievingly so.

Have you heard about disorder disguising itself as order and vice versa.

1. What you think of as REALITY is a collection of ideas and beliefs about
REALITY. Many of the ideas you have about REALITY come from the
culture in which you were raised and have accumulated haphazardly over
time.
2. This, in itself, is not a problem. The problem is in forgetting point number
1. When you forget point 1, you mistake your ideas about reality for being
REALITY itself. Of this, it has been said ‘the menu is not the meal’. Please
refrain from eating the menu.
3. People who ‘eat the menu’ frequently become confused and annoyed when
other people insist on seeing REALITY in a different way. All that truly dif-
fers are their ideas and beliefs about REALITY.
4. Beliefs are just thoughts you keep having.
5. No living being is capable of perceiving all of REALITY, as all senses of
perception are limited. Humans can only see, hear, smell, taste and feel within
certain parameters. Information entering our senses undergoes compression,

Spirits can tell how powerful you think they are. If you perceive them as more powerful than yourself, they perceive this as love. If you perceive them as less powerful than yourself, but you actually do love them, they perceive this also as love. Either way, it is ambrosia. It empowers them.

They can perceive more than that, but their sense of the love radiating off of you can blind them. Spirits whose power exceeds their sensitivity can drift into tyranny without knowing the corrosion of their own nature, particularly when faced with a mortal who knows them in their grandest guise. For cannot the endless admiration be felt? The whole resonant power of the being before them is raised in exultation..! But it is the mere conviction of power, and not always a truly positive response.

The difference between fear and love is a distinction drawn more intuitively on Earth than on some worlds. Numerous are the spirits drawn more to fear than love in truth, for they detest to be thought weak more than they truly care if they are loved.

Eris never will drift into tyranny, or perhaps better said her power is innately tyrannical, but certainly growing greater cannot make her focus shift; for her particular kind of tyranny is to find change potentials and empower people recklessly within them. Were she willing to empower only saints she would enter into heaven, for it is not her own will that creates the suffering of her renown. Rather it is that she empowers saints and scoundrels alike and sets that sets her roaming the abyss. Eris loves questionable people for questionable reasons. I shouldn't need to tell Discordians how to gain the favor of Eris, but among your more ordinary rituals you should be very certain that you won't recognize Eris in your dreams. Chaos Thrives Unnoticed.

Some tricks of spirit work on earth, but I can't tell if it is wiser to use them benevolently or not at all. I can't tell here how anything moves. I have the barest hint of my former sight and fire - what happened? Why is there so much pain in this place?

Schopenhauer said that we live in the worst of all possible worlds. As ever, he thought he was being far more pessimistic than he actually was. If things were any worse than they are, he wrote, the universe would be impossible; it would collapse into a state of total emptiness and decay. In his cheery sun-soaked self-delusion he didn’t seem to consider that the world is not possible and never was, that this fall into nothing has already happened.
