That's odd...
« on: August 15, 2014, 12:46:21 pm »
I was sure the Law of Eristic Escalation ("Imposition of Order = Escalation of Disorder") was explicitly stated in the POEE Principia Discordia.  But I can't seem to find it.

Anyone have a decent reference?

That is strange. At the very least it's implied by the Sacred Chao.

I feel like that's possibly discussed in more detail in the Kerry Thornley introduction in the Illuminet press edition (Purple).
If sheep entrails could in any way be related to the weather, i.e. sheep trails only originate where it rains, then you could use it as an accurate model for discerning what the weathers going to be like. Either, sheep shit makes it rain, or raining makes sheep shit. Sheep don't shit "randomly" sheep shit after they eat, it doesn't rain "randomly" it rains after water collects in the atmosphere.

I believe so, but Kerry misquotes it as Chaos instead of Disorder. That whole distinction was more of Greg's thing I guess.

It is an unfortunate fact that every man who seeks to disseminate knowledge must contend not only against ignorance itself, but against false instruction as well.
