I think it's time for a new testament.

We could call it "The Next Testament". The Old Testament , the New Testament, and the Next Testament has a nice flow to it.
You can't get out backward.  You have to go forward to go back.. better press on! - Willie Wonka, PBUH

Life can be seen as a game with no reset button, no extra lives, and if the power goes out there is no restarting.  If that's all you see life as you are not long for this world, and never will get it.

Wouldn't the new testament of discordianism be the books of the subgenius?

That's very nice, thank you, OG. I fixed a typo so it reads "and a lack..."

Replaced with the new version. Any other changes?

Maybe you are.  My neighbor is in 1850, and I'm 20 years from now.  Without the impending horrible economic and climate implosion, I mean.

I'm not worried about global warming. We'll have a nuclear war long before it starts to cause problems in earnest. Then things will get nice and cold again.

Personally, I love the 5-season cycle.


Each season has its own features, its own tools, its own escape scenario



My two cents says:

If something is in the season of Chaos, recognize the potential energy there. Be mindful of the law of unintended consequences - during the prenatal form of any structure/idea/community/etc, the idea isn't fully formed yet. Random things can kick it in any direction.

If we are in the season of Confusion, disorder reigns. Stuff needs structure or it will die.

If we are living in Discord--in pre-bureaucratic times--- it is the eve of Order taking over. So as Discordians, we usually hit the brakes, we try to prevent order from dominating and becoming a bureaucracy.

If we are living in the season of Bureaucracy, we build for Aftermath, we work on the systems that will replace Bureaucracy. We often work via acceleration, bring the pimple to the surface, intensifying the order until it is unpalatable (this is the same mechanism that Satire uses)


and that when you recognize an Aftermath moment, savor it, appreciate it. The waves have broken and are rolling back into the sea.
