Hi guys! Help me solve this mystery.

In my "discordian" google alerts for the day, I noticed a website just went up:

http://www.discordian.net


There's nothing there, except a cool image (above), and the phrase "VUGA VULET SAGA SHAN ISA GO!"

I am intrigued. I want to find out what this website is and what that phrase means.


When I googled that phrase, it only pointed at this page, which has little other information. If you look through the history of that page, you find that it was created in 2003, and the only text on the page read

"VUGA VULET SAGA SHAN ISA GO! Spirit of the Sky, Remember!"


the phrase "spirit of the sky, remember!" is from the Simon Necronomicon.


Does that VUGA VULET sentence sound familiar to anybody? Does anybody have any ideas?

VUGA VULEZ SAGA SHAN ISA GO!

is from a KLF song featuring Tammy Wynette, called Justified and Ancient.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZX0mcases4M

All bound for mu mu land

 Hey hey

 

 They are justified and they are ancient

 And they like to room the land

 - Just roll it from the top -

 They are justified and they are ancient

 I hope you understand

 - To the bridge to the bridge to the bridge now -

 They didn't want to upset the applecar

 They don't want to cause any harm

 But if you don't like what's they're going to do

 You'd better not stop them 'cos they're coming through

 

 Bring the beat back

 

 All bound for mu mu land

 Hey hey

 

 They are justified and they are ancient

 And they drive an ice cream van

 - Just roll it from the top -

 They are justified and they are ancient

 With still no master plan

 - To the bridge to the bridge to the bridge now -

 The last train left an hour ago

 They were singing "all aboard"

 All bound for mu mu land

 Then someone started screaming

 "Turn up the strobe"

 

 Bring the beat back All bound for mu mu land

 Hey hey Rocking to the rhythm in the ice cream van

 With the plan and the key to enter in to mu mu

 Vibes from the tribes of the jams

 I know where the p.d's at

 'Cos i know what time it is

 Threes on the dial

 Make mine a 99

 New style, meanwhile

 

 Fishing in the rivers of life (hoi!)

 Vuga vulez, saga shan isa go

I'll go with what LMNO said. Probably some sort of house glossolalia.

Vuga means talk in some African language.

Vulez is French, but not sure for what.  Possibly a slang version of Vouloir?  Not sure.

Saga is of course "story" or tale in Norse.

Shan is a trickier one.  Could be Gaelic for "old and wise", or Chinese for "mountain", or "pride" in Hindi.

Isa is the Arabic name for Jesus, but could also mean iron in Teutonic, or rainbow in Chamorro.

And go obviously means start.
"The thoughts of all men arise from the darkness. If you are the movement of your soul, and the cause of that movement precedes you, then how could you ever call your thoughts your own? How could you be anything other than a slave to the darkness that comes before? Only the Logos allows one to mitigate that slavery. Only knowing the sources of thought and action allows us to own our thoughts and our actions, to throw off the yoke of circumstance."

Shit, I didn't even think about checking different languages. 
However, vulez isn't a french word. Could be a misspelling/corruption of voulez (want)

I've seen it on sites where they're writing in French.  I'm fairly sure it's a slang spelling for voulez.

"VUGA VULEZ SAGA SHAN ISA GO!" is an anagram of "A VAGINA SAVAGES GUSH LOUT!".

It's clearly about vagina dentata.

Exactly what it says, of course.

OR....is it exactly what it doesn't say?

There's an mp3 playing on the site. Very quietly, I didn't notice it until I looked at the page source and turned my speakers up.
It's a creepy ambient sort of thing called hipnaural.mp3

And the logo looks like it was borrowed from the Dharma Initiative in Lost.


There's also a little logo that comes up next to my address bar:

hm? I don't recognise it.

Be what you would seem to be - or, if you'd like it put more simply - never imagine yourself not to be otherwise than what it might appear to others that what you were or might have been was not otherwise than what you had been would have appeared to them to be otherwise.

Well, that was fun.

This site was build with Net Objects Fusion, I can't confirm that the hm thing is their default favicon (tineye doesn't love me) but the css files reference all kinds of NOF things that aren't on the site at all. It's possible there was a nof site on there that they nuked and replaced with this and didn't realize that the css files could go, too, since the site is nothing but tables, two images, and some in-line css at this point.

The image is based on the Bagua


Which is of course where the Lost people got it from, no way of knowing which ones our friends at dnet were borrowing from
Lap-Top Confessional of Your Most Deranged Horrorbag Indulgences | _xgeWireToEvent: Unknown extension 131, this should never happen.

Don't fucking judge me, I've got tentacles for a face.

Well, if the logo was created when the page went online then it wouldn't be from the Dharma logo as LOST didn't premiere until late 2004.  I'd wager each were borrowing from the Bagua.
