What the shit is all of this?
« on: August 19, 2011, 04:16:11 am »
Serious question: is the whole point just that discordia is nonsense, or is there something more to it?  I've been into the eastern religions for a while now, as well as the conspiracy/23 stuff, for a while now.  So, what's up with discordianism?

It is both a load of nonsense and also there's more to it than that.  Take away from Discordia what you will, because there isn't any solid doctrine to follow (except for thinking for yourself, but that is more a heavy-handed suggestion.)
If someone does the “Fine, you’re right, I’m clearly a terrible person, I’m Satan, I’m the worst person alive, I should just die” thing in response to criticism of their harmful behavior, they are trying to manipulate people and flip the situation around so that they look like a victim.

As a neuroscientist I have to disagree with the perception that anyone is doing mathematical modeling of cognitive intelligence, yet; intelligence as an economist defines it, yes, but economists are worlds away from actual cognition.

To understand discordianism, you first need to understand discordianism.

No, really, you should probably consult an expert on the subject.  Just don't trust anyone that calls themselves an expert because that makes them a liar and a fraud, which is what allows them to be so good at it.

I see it kind of like Eastern philosophy without gurus, and you get to fuck with people.  :p

A discordian results from the violent relaxation of the mind.

Y'know how everyone's always on about 'the light path' and 'the dark path' and 'the true path'? Discordia is all the landscape between the paths that too many people ignore on their single-minded journey down the beaten track.

I think this is a good way to look at it, except the off-path is filled with feces and the trees keep trying to butt fuck you.

"Those who dance are often considered insane by those who cannot hear the music." -Hung Mung, 3rd Century BCE







In a Universe where our national Atomic Weapons Ethics handbook included references to YHWH obliterating its enemies in balefire without taking any mana burn.... where the Law is bargaining with drug cartels using "Get (Ignored) Out of Jail Free" cards in exchange for intel on their rivals (re-gifted, mind you, and covered in the cocaine residue left from the last shmuck to use it)....

....where someone with millions in the bank actually proposes an ATLAS SHRUGGED THEMEPARK (for Goddess' Sake, where's-my-f-ing-knife) within the same 24 months of the Atlas Shrugged Movie BOMING like the deluded Oslo psudeo-neo-Templaring idiot....

....a Universe where we've moved waaaay past the Military Industrial Complex to the Conspiritainment Complex, where some of us _ARE_ living in the future (it just hasn't been even distributed yet), where individual citizens are used to farm and sell debt on a national scale (like a bankster's Farmville on Facebook... oh you know they're doing that after the oh, so exhausting E-Trade commercial..click-clikc-click-click), and we seriously consider electing people who taking about "trading carbon emission credits"....

....it's a universe where the While House Chief of Staff remarks about a War Action (the Iraqi War, btw): "From a marketing point of view, you don't introduce new products in August."..... but it's also a Universe where no-body remembers that because they yanked down pt.1 of the America's Got Talent's Season Finale from Hulu.com after only 24 hours, and fuck people are pissed they didn't get to see those acts perform.

In these Strange Times, if you really need a friendly guiding hand, are you really going to quibble over weather he's a Taoist in a Clown suit, an Admiral in the Floating Republic of Mu, or a Dinosaur Shaman in a Pith Helmet (hush now, dinosaurs were real creatures, not like those other stories)?

Chao te Ching

Chapter 64
Organized things cause Disorder.
Disorganized things cry for Order.
The colorful and flashy get noticed.
The wary and wise wear camouflage.
A mindfuck of epic proportions
only happens when no one notices the set-up.
Most games are won
when using misdirection.

Let other people
wave their flags and storm the riot shields.
You're not playing that game;
Those game rules were written by Authority.
There is no way you can win at that.

Therefore the wise spags learn all the rules,
and then write different games.
They create the Illusion
that best fits their situation,
and doing so, win.


Chapter 81
Words are not experiences.
Experiences have no words.

Reading about Laughter
is not the same as laughing.

These Orderly letters only approximate
the spinning Chaos of life.

The Disorder around you
has yet to find a pattern.

Now get out there
and make something happen.
