Official Discordian Document Numbering System REDISCOVERED!
« on: January 04, 2011, 09:53:38 am »
I cracked it, because my girlfriend needed an official doc number for a marriage certificate for a marriage she had recently performed.

So I went here:

**link to 1st ed PD removed due to polite request from the Archivist**

And then

http://www.principiadiscordia.com/book/27.php

And then suddenly IT was there, like a fetid demon squatting in my head. Greg Hill's, the Polyfather's,  Official Discordian Document Numbering System..... and IT WON'T GO AWAY.



Liv's doc number was III(c)/5,iv;12:23:10 by the way.

That means:

III(c) - Issued from the Bureau of Symbols, Emblems, Certificates and Such

5,iv - Issued by a POEE Priest

12:23:10 - The date, but write it with colons so it doesn't look like a date, LULZ!
(Actually, I think Greg wrote that before coming up with the Discordian calendar, because he uses that on the few official doc numbers I've run across).

Holyshit.


IT EXISTS.

no waaaaaiii
- So the New World Order does not actually exist?
- Oh it exists, and how!
Ask the slaves whose labour built the White House;
Ask the slaves of today tied down to sweatshops and brothels to escape hunger;
Ask most women, second class citizens, in a pervasive rape culture;
Ask the non-human creatures who inhabit the planet:
whales, bears, frogs, tuna, bees, slaughtered farm animals;
Ask the natives of the Americas and Australia on whose land
you live today, on whose graves your factories, farms and neighbourhoods stand;
ask any of them this, ask them if the New World Order is true;
they'll tell you plainly: the New World Order… is you!

Y'know... reading more and more about Kerry, Greg, and RAW .... I think they didn't put the ODD in the PD on purpose.

It was totally a 'koan'. Something that they could point at you and go, "You don't have a correct ODD# on that ordination, you're not a REALLY REAL Discordian".

I will be organizing my discovery sometime in the next few weeks (I've got to finish a coding project, and I start a term in a week).

Here's what I told cavehamster in chat last night:


(6:58:45 PM) CRAM: Big T, that numbering system is a great find
(6:58:57 PM) CRAM: when Net and I were laying out the Etc I insisted on using the official discordian numbering system
(6:59:15 PM) CRAM: but i thought that just meant using 5 digit numbers like page 00009 or page 000112
(6:59:45 PM) cavehamster: what did you use?
(7:00:12 PM) CRAM: the 5 digit numbering system
(7:00:44 PM) cavehamster: oh
(7:01:42 PM)  Telarus: yeah, that's what I always thought it was, too
(7:01:59 PM) Telarus: or just some made-up digits...
(7:04:58 PM) cavehamster: ok, i am confused, how is it not just 5 digit numbers?
.....
(7:09:47 PM) cavehamster: ok, it partly makes sense
(7:10:31 PM) cavehamster: i dont understand how this bit parses:  5,iv - Issued by a POEE Priest
(7:12:30 PM) CRAM: T could probably explain
(7:12:56 PM) Telarus: The parts before/after the slash both reference the same Disorg Matrix, but use different numbering schemes to be all Illuminati and shit

(7:13:06 PM) Telarus: Greg was a genius
(7:13:31 PM) cavehamster: oh, i copy
(7:13:42 PM) cavehamster: now what of the number after the semicolon?
(7:13:50 PM) cavehamster: is that random or ordered?
(7:15:57 PM) Telarus: the date (made not to look like a date). his rough draft of the ODD said break the Gregorian date with semi-colons (also to be all Illuminati and shit). But then he and Kerry came up with the Discordian Calendar, and so most of the ODD#s in the PD have an abbreviation of that (to further hide the date).

(7:16:43 PM) cavehamster: is there a table of abbreviations or just make it up from the first 3 letters?
(7:19:42 PM) Telarus: http://www.principiadiscordia.com/book/41.php
(7:19:42 PM) Telarus: 14 pages away in the PD (1+4 LULZ!)
(7:19:59 PM) Fred: KEKEKEK
(7:20:07 PM) cavehamster: got it

I've looked at this in the past, but the version explained in the first edition is not consistent with the 4th editions numbering. Great that you figured it out.

Yeah, that was my issue, and then I just started reading one, then the other, then the other, and the it made horrible HORRIBLE sense.  :fnord:

Oh, I meant PD1, vs the modern PD Disorganizational Matrices.

Although I really wish I had Adam Gorightly's access to Malacypse's Official Discordian Archive.

That still exists? I'd pay money for some of that to be released.

You know, maybe we should just make up a new one and pretend we never found this.
- So the New World Order does not actually exist?
- Oh it exists, and how!
Ask the slaves whose labour built the White House;
Ask the slaves of today tied down to sweatshops and brothels to escape hunger;
Ask most women, second class citizens, in a pervasive rape culture;
Ask the non-human creatures who inhabit the planet:
whales, bears, frogs, tuna, bees, slaughtered farm animals;
Ask the natives of the Americas and Australia on whose land
you live today, on whose graves your factories, farms and neighbourhoods stand;
ask any of them this, ask them if the New World Order is true;
they'll tell you plainly: the New World Order… is you!

Just heard that Adam is working on a "History of the Discordian Society" project with some of the Official Archive material.

Aaaaand Adam Gorightly has asked me to write up the reDiscovery of the ODD# System for his new book. Still hasn't told me if he has documents with these number on them in the "Official Archives".

More details when I have them.
