Your favorite chapter or section from the Principia Discordia?

For those who get their kicks and bemusement from reading the central sacred text, lets start some particular discussion on it? See if we can summon an insurance agent?  8)

I have a copy, but I've never read it.

A Sermon on Ethics is probably my favorite.

Bitter Tea and Starbuck's Pebbles run a close second and third.

The bit on Grids - which I've discovered likely came from Alan Watts. Alan Watts had a radio show at Berkely in the late 50s, and teen Mal and Omar probably listened to it. Here's a section from his book  On The Tabboo Against Knowing Who You Are - http://cramul.us/post/27126060129/from-alan-watts-on-the-tabboo-against-knowing - looks a lot like the Reality Grids section, right?




"Some say he was a holy man, others say he was a shit head." - this one brings me down to earth when I need it



"Oh well, then stop"



And so it is that we, as men, do not exist until we do; and then it is that we play with our world of existent things, and order and disorder them, and so it shall be that Non-existence shall take us back from Existence, and that nameless Spirituality shall return to Void, like a tired child home from a very wild circus.

I don't like to play favorites, but the sections that seem nearest to my heart -- and the ones I feel represent Discordia well when explaining the philosophy to others -- are:

- Starbuck's Pebbles (an excellent primer for / example of the concept of reality tunnels.)
- Curse of Greyface and also Salvation (these complimentary sections are a great reminder to not take myself so seriously. Also a personal well of hope.)
- The Curse of Greyface and the Introduction of Negativism (aka the Order/Disorder/Creative/Destructive matrix. As someone who grew up locked in the Order vs. Chaos binary, understanding this concept opened up a new ontological perspective for me and helped rid me of several personal prejudices.)
