Title: Introductions, Part VI: Welcome to Our PD Party
Post by: The Good Reverend Roger on February 22, 2017, 02:51:48 am
Hello.  Assuming you're not a google-spider thing or a wrathful ex-member seeking your glorious revenge, there are a few things you need to know, and a few things we need to know.  I'll start with what we need to know:

1.  Who the hell are you, and how did you find this place?  You're a cop, right?  Yeah you are.  Or you're wearing a wire.  I can smell that shit, and you are most definitely some kind of spy for government agencies that never heard of us and wouldn't care if they did.  Fess up.

2.  Why on Earth would you join a religion that worships a Greek God...And not just ANY Greek God, but the one all the OTHER Greek Gods thought was a troublemaker?  You're just asking for it, you know.

3.  Do you know any good recipes?  Because we have a section for that, and I'm trying to learn to cook.

Now, what you need to know:

1.  We've read the Principia Discordia (and we don't advise it to anyone).  We have all seen every Monty Python movie ever made.  Quoting either one gets you The Punishmentô.  Or at least gets you ignored.

2.  We are a bundle of bad wiring, so don't try to be the weirdest person in the room your first time out.  Absurdism only works if it's funny, and word salad isn't funny.

3.  Nobody here believes that "all opinions are of equal value", so be warned: If you're spouting alt-right shit or the dogma of lesser religions, you're going to get laughed at. 

4.  We only have 6 rules that get you banned.  Learn them.

5.  If you want to pimp your music or your art or anything like that, please restrict it to the subforum "Bring & Brag".  If that's all you're here to do, shove off.

6.  Our board's owner ("The Mgt") left in disgust recently.  That should tell you what you're in for.  The board is currently run by an Irish guy who doesn't give a shit about any of us.  He just sits in a drafty castle in Ireland somewhere, eating corned beef and listening to The Bay City Rollers on Pandora.  He doesn't care if we live or die. 

7.  There are two admins and one moderator that are here on a semi-regular basis...Myself, Cain, and LMNO.  We don't care if you're being trolled or whatnot, we only care about the 6 bannable offenses.  Again, learn them.  If someone's giving you grief, use the ignore function.  If one of the admins is that person, you can't ignore us, so just scroll on by.

All that being said, go ahead and introduce yourself.  People will say "Hi, new guy!", because we've lost our mojo and can't bring ourselves to shit on noobs like back in the day.  We apologize for this, and hope you are not too disappointed.

For the love of all that's holy, do NOT send a recipie to Roger.

I'm not sure if you've ever seen air spontaneously combust. Which means you haven't seen Roger try to make an ego waffle.

This is an exaggeration brought on by a sequence of bizarre events that no reasonable person could have possibly foreseen.

Grilled cheese isn't even flammable for fuck's sake.  I know this because I tried to repeat the incident using a map gas torch, and it just shriveled up.

I can't find the six banable offenses.

I'm Nazi Puncher, hello again. I came here because I read that chaos magic and Discorians were behind the alt-right and wanted to punch them but then it turns out you guys hate them as much as I do. So now we can team up and be a powerful NAZI PUNCHING FIGHTING FORCE

I don't worship anything, I was told that I am now an honorary Discordian by coming here. I've been doing a lot of reading on it the past couple of days though, seems like it's all about restoration of balance, which I agree with. Things are getting unbalanced and we need to restore it

recipe: 1 tablespoon of my fist
a dash of Nazis (republicans as substitute)
mix in a bowl
punch until STFU

I take issue with this. Republican != Nazi or even just plain garden variety racist.

Who the hell am I? Who the hell are you and how did this ubiquitous leaping cockroach of a religion manifest from the anals (yes) of my mind into someone else's and onto paper? I feel as if I've been living my life knowing all these truths intuitively and come by this site and the things that entails the same way. That's not to say I ever really listen to that intuition that has done naught but guide me true when indulged. With every reason and every obvious benefit, it still looms oppressive that I stick to what I know rather than what I KNOW.

Which brings me to why I'm here, ultimately: Nothing seems real anymore. Sure. A common lament among the dreamy-eyed, lazy-ass ponderers with no actionable experience from which to draw that conclusion. So, too, is it nonetheless true that, in the course of my day-to-day, I pour untold amounts of energy into the world around me- The people that populate it for me; with me; against me; at my side, behind, and before me- and feel a right Quixote* when they look at me like I'm an idiot for caring about their wellbeing, happiness, and soul when they don't have time for that.

Which pisses me off like nothing else when I didn't have to bother to take the time in the first place. So why bother?

Which seems like an answer to the question in its own right, but what the fuck. I didn't care like this at one point in my life; had never felt the unyielding, burning energy of true and unconditional love. Never asked to. Now I've got these feelings and shit and no one gives me nothing but grief for them.

I don't want to leave those I care for behind, but what shall I do when they wont come with me where I'm needed? Neither can I hate them, for they are only living to their nature.

Also, I can cook. Like I was born to. Should I start a thread for simple recipes and dumb cooking questions? I'm a big user of 'scratch' methods, so be prepared to do the work to get the food just like the hunter gather-ers of old.

If anyone is interested, I also know a bunch of odd-and-end stupid human tricks and ultimately useless but intriguing knowledge that may or may not be true, and have a few unmarketable skills for curio.

Hi, Y'all. My name is Tom. Probably.

Morrissey is the crown prince of sad.  He teaches us that deaf/mute girls are terrible at telling you that a disaster is occurring, and that when you get famous, all your old friends hate you for buying new tee shirts.  Morrissey fans are best known for hugging their legs and biting their knees in the shower, over a girl that dumped them rather than learn their name, or binge-eating an entire pizza and then throwing it up on their man-boobs in the bath tub, while they squeeze their  testicles until they remember that they are worthless and do not deserve love.

Well... at least they get a bath in every now and then. Wait, is the tub empty before they get in? Because partially digested pizza is NOT a substitute for soap and I may have presumed too much.

Is this an MRA thing or some other sort of mental disease?

Making assumptions before replying to a genuine desire to speak with like minded people is a sure way to never speak with a like minds person again. I hardly fit the bill of a maudlin koan. I'm seeking answers and ideas and people that aren't still asleep.

I didn't speak my piece because it's an original story of pain and woe. Because I'm fragile and need validation. Because I need someone to whine with me. I spoke my piece because it was asked of me. "Why am I here?" I told you. I'm sorry you don't like it, but I had kinda hoped that it would resonate with someone who wanted to talk about ANYTHING else.

Nothing seems real. I've lost teeth to objects aimed at my face. Nobody ever learns. It's like the hardest part of the body. You're more likely to hurt your hand than you are to hit the 2 square inches of valid target area on the head.

Pain is just another illusion that disappears as you embrace it. Just like fear. It's motivation to run, fight, or die like a little bitch. But the really important bit? It's a lesson. If you don't die from it. The lesson you learn, however, doesn't teach you that anything is actually really real. It just shows you that the unknown can hurt from time to time. That you should probably not lead with your head. Or at least raise your hands like you care to put up a fight.

Pain shows you how to fight. Not why. Not ever why. Because there is only ever another type of pain to embrace.

My desire to find something real isn't for me. It's for my children and my wife that I care about. Its for all the love I now hold for those in this world that cant see beyond what's put in front of them.

I'm trying to be happy so that I can show them how. It would appear that I've come to the wrong place, but I cant quietly accept that the only people I've found in the world with a modicum of sense would simply act like everyone else without. So take this as you will and delete what you want. I'm done.

I've never tried hugging the barstool after it was thrown.

You'll find plenty of pain here. There's happiness, too, but ya gotta take a deep breath and look for it. Which, really, isn't so different from life outside this site.

There are also some bits and pieces here that are a bit different from the world at large. In my opinion, those differences are vital, challenging, and generally life-affirming. Your mileage may vary.

In any case, welcome!

If you'll entertain a bit of unsolicited advice, you may want to review your word choice.  "I'm done", "nothing is real", "pain and woe", "whine with me", etc.

Underneath that appears to be a request to discuss why compassion should be defended as a good thing, but it's buried in a lot of other stuff.

Also, we have a cooking section.  You should check it out.

What is meant, for clarity, by the embracing of pain: Stare at it. Make it all you can see. All you can feel. All you know. And it disappears. Simply becomes a fact and has no control over your decisions farther than the desire to move around it. It becomes a part of you as you absorb the pain and the lesson it brings. There is no little mental trick that can block out pain. There isn't some ancient Chinese secret to pain relief and there isn't a pill. It's only ever this. Knowledge of how to proceed now that the pain is known.

It is kind of like hugging the barstool, now that I think about it. Thank you. I'ma teach my students that as a conceptual aid.

Thank you. Genuinely.

I'm not here to add to the pain. Only to understand it. Maybe make it a little weirder.

--

The rambling wasn't a request. It was just a statement. To show where I'm at and who I am in an abstract and metaphysical sort of way. I agree that the words carry connotations that would lead you to ask such questions, but such is the nature of words.

I agree that I struggle with this ideal in a world that rejects it by and large, but there is no doubt in my mind that compassion is one of the few worthy emotions in this respect. It simply hurts that it leads me to so many walls. The pain I'm looking to understand, if you will.

I'm sorry that I came off like a whiny twit at first. In my defense, I got some ditch smoke last night.

This sounds like a form of Buddhism, but with a whiff of masochism.

Not a negative criticism, just getting a feel for the concept.

Been a martial artist all my life and I looked for those techniques everywhere. Never found any that worked. Maybe I didn't believe hard enough. Then, I was put in a few positions to do nothing but feel the Pain. We talked. He's not such a bad guy. He's been through some shit. Taught me some cool things.

Bit of an amorphous phrase, that. The observation is somewhat connected to this feeling, yes, but is informed by it rather than predicated. In example: Pain should be real. A marker. Something that ties us inextricably to the world of the material. It's how you know that you're dreaming. Pinch yourself, is what we say. Yet, pain, too, can be subjected to enough scrutiny that it ceases to affect us physically.

It's more of a generalization. Nothing seems real *enough* for tradition. The satisfaction of innate human biology to make what seems good and right or feels good and right a constant thing. Tradition. For our kids.

The 80's and 90's taught us that nothing matters and that everything should be treated with skepticism or sarcasm. It's in all the angry and disenfranchised music. It's in all the shows. Married With Children takes an archetype and makes a parody of it. Sure, it's understood as a parody, but how long before people forget what parody means because the meme of that worldview (Living a parody based upon an appreciation of irony that went a little too far and dug some roots in your greater perceptions) made it funny to have experiences that mirror the TV. You become the popular one at the water cooler if you can regail your workmates with stories of your life and progeny that 'beat all I've ever seen.'

About 10-15 years, it seems. In many cases, instantly.

Small part of a larger puzzle, yes, and some things do seem more real and worthy than others. But as I consider the origin of things more, they seem less so. Imposed. Just like the pain that you can see through if you try.

Does that help?

Well, then.  I suggest you go to the downloads section and get a copy of the BIP, read it, and then examine that statement.  I mean, it's kind of arrogant - and wildly inaccurate - to assume that you and a few others are the only conscious beings in a world full of sheep.  Yeah, that's the kind of delusion that makes you feel sorta better about yourself and the world around you, but it's also basing your worldview on a false premise...And that can lead to all manner of hilarity when extended.

Okay, but... Nigel might have a more accurate explanation, but pain is a stimulation of a category of nerve cells, often in response to some form of damage.  It sounds like you've learned how to ignore that, rather than make it "go away" or "not exist".

That sounds quite a lot like weaponized denialism.

Hey there, new guy!

I've been off Nigeling the shit out of things for a few days, but I'm looking forward to getting to know you. Many of us here cook, so please, jump on into an existing cooking thread, or feel free to start your own!

#1 tip I can give you is, try not to confuse any of us for any of the others of us. We are an "us" only loosely speaking (some more so than others), and often disagree with each other.

Most of us have a specialty of some sort. If you want to know stuff about brains, I'm your man. I have also been known to be an obnoxious, pedantic know-it-all about my area of interest, so if you just wanna think about stuff in a wibbly-wobbly unscientific armchairy sort of way, tell me and I'll shut up.

Hello new person. Generally I limit my interaction with these introductory threads to vacant snark, and really I have bother of much value to add to your various existential perplexions. However, I would add in this case an expression of my sense that such a command of the English language should not be wasted on poking around at this "imposed" reality looking for authenticity.

You could write novels with an ability like yours, or at least stuffy short stories, and there's nothing quite as real in this world as a whole world outside of it invented by the pen of a gifted writer. We humans decide for ourselves what is "real" anyway, often without much evidence to go on, and being consciously aware of that fact subtracts nothing from it. Just try to minimize the despondent solipsism. It's bad for the suspension of disbelief.

Hi! I'm Chucklemaster. I posted here maybe 300 (holy crap that's too many) or so times and then left for a year or so.
Once upon a time I thought I liked Discordia, but then I actually thought about it and discovered I was not at all the person I wanted to be, so I changed. Still a discordian(if you want to use labels), just channeling my pretension into other things now.
These days I'm playing RPGs and such with strangers and pals, going to punk shows and other adventures, writing poetry and short stories, and studying the weird.
I'm not gonna post any contact details here because of paranoia but if you PM me I'll probably give you usernames you can find me at. Please name specific sites and why, though.

Hey, I'm Qlip, I don't consider myself a Discordian, but I thought I'd hang out here for a bit. What lead me to this particular forum was that I made a friend through another friend, she was pretty cute and into Chaos Magick. I don't really truck with that, I myself am a lifelong Qabbalist, kind of on par with how I'm a guitarist, I can play Blackbird and the intro to Stairway to Heaven and that's all. So I stalked her for a bit on the social media, reading her reposted magick memes, all the while I got on with my life. I went on a half-year LSD trip, went clear, turned on to prog-folk, fell in love, and moved to the forest in Northern California.

Then she reposted a little excerpt called A ZEN STORY by somebody who billed himself The Count of Five Headmaster, Camp Meeker Cabal. I had just checked out a rental in Camp Meeker a few months ago. Looking more into the author of that piece, Camden Benares, it turns out he was the Postmaster of the little town I did end up in. Unfortunately he wasn't there when I signed up for my P.O. Box.  But, I did find a hobo mark on the post office fence post indicating this forum gave free handouts if you told a story.  Hi.

Hey new guy!
Woah! I had no idea what the Camp Meeker Cabal referred to - he was the postmaster for your town? that's crazy. I'm a big fan of Camden's book, Zen Without Zen Masters. If you dig up any other local Count of Fives stories, I would be dying to hear them.


There used to be a little qaballah contingent on this board - that cabal was nicknamed SSOOKN, but I can't recall what that stood for. LMNO, you must remember. This guy Mangrove (where IS mangrove, anyway??) actually taught me a bunch about Qaballah, and pointed me at the book Chicken Soup Qaballah, which seemed like a good introduction. ("It's all in your head, you just have no idea how big your head is." -- that line really sticks with me)


The board is a bit slow these days, but if you be pro-active and post some topics you want to discuss, people are sure to jump in. Anyway, welcome!

I'm a musician/composer, writer, artist, occultist, comparative religion guy, film addict, screenplay/theatre guy, absurdist/surrealist, R.A.W. fan (and many more unimportant things that remain important), with an ongoing fascination with the Principia Discordia sacred text handed down to us by God's landlord himself!  :wink:

My signature probably plays into my interest in Kabbalah and Synchronicity too, lol.




The 23 Enigma was and is and will ever be a mindfuck of massive proportions. As discordians, do we still continue this tradition?

Worked with different magicians & Vodou folk over the years. Perform old blues and other noise. Sometimes perform as a magician & theatrical mind-reader.

1) Last fall when looking for post-modern and post-humanist books to read I found PD, the book, on a Wikipedia page for parody/post-modern religions. I started reading it, thought it was funny, but then stopped and moved on to a different pdf. Later I audiobook'd the Illuminatus! Trilogy and was provoked by the logogram/biogram theory of action. After finishing the trilogy, I looked for further reading on the subject finding only one journal article titled 'Dissipating the Logogram'. It was a good read, but I wasn't satisfied with his resolution... ended up on PD, the forum, several times in my search. Too many times and I am here.

2) From what I've read, the other Greek Gods weren't the best judges of character. But yeah, I'm askin' for it.

3) I cook practically, might add some recipes there but they aren't fancy. Here's an easy one for now.

0. If this is your first time working with pasta and you need extra luck, try throwing a pinch of salt over your shoulder into the pot. If not, skip this step.

1. Make spaghetti. From scratch is cheaper but box works just as well. The key to knowing when the spaghetti is ready is a sudden change in the smell of the room. After the smell changes, let it cook a bit longer. If you can't smell the difference yet, do a flexibility test of the pasta and try it every now and then. It is essential the spaghetti gets a lot of water in it for this recipe. Also, I don't think it is important to boil the water before putting the spaghetti in as long as it is kinda hot.

2. Drain the spaghetti. While draining it is easy, if you mess up you can end up with sink-spaghetti a different, less desirable recipe. Also, it is important to pour it out of the pot when you drain it, so it gets airtime.

3. Here is the twist. Then freeze the amount of spaghetti you will eat. The goal is not to freeze it thoroughly, but to get a soft-freeze. Frozen spaghetti, as long as it is malleable, is very refreshing and enables many more pairings rather than just tomatoes and cheese. I recommend pickles in my frozen spaghetti, but I wouldn't eat pickles in hot spaghetti. Alternatively, frozen spaghetti can be a straight dessert as an ice cream substitute if paired with something sweet. Lastly, semi-frozen spaghetti is not as messy. Because it does not slip around and can be bitten into rather than slurped, frozen spaghetti is a better option for fancier meals, I'd imagine. I freeze spaghetti practically, not fancily, so I wouldn't know on that last pro.

 I'm Iz, I'm an art student, a revolt-over-reform politics nerd, and I'm vaguely intimidated by your line of questioning. How did you know???

 I used to tell people I was a Hellenic Pagan when I lived under a rock and hadn't met a lot of those, but they're pretty not nicetm a lot of the time and so I've kinda just... veered off from that. That's all the pertinent stuff, at the moment anyway.

2.  Why on Earth would you join a religion that worships a Greek God...And not just ANY Greek God, but the one all the OTHER Greek Gods thought was a troublemaker?  You're just asking for it, you know.

I always liked the underworld gods more as a whole. They weren't bail-out gods or saviors or anything like that. In Ancient Greece people would avoid even saying their name to avoid getting their attention. Eris is the Goddess of Discord and Strife and such, and I can relate to that. I've been called a "Sower of Strife" by a few religious types in my home town because I would argue with them, and I never saw how that was a bad thing. So to worship the Goddess of Strife seemed... suiting.
also I liked the book I'm not supposed to quote

3.  Do you know any good recipes?  Because we have a section for that, and I'm trying to learn to cook.

I know a lot of recipes for Mexican food if that's what you're into.

Hello staktere! Welcome to PD. If you like that Oldschool Religion, you'll like this place -- but only because we are an ancient forum community. We've been around since early pagan times, except that I mean the early 2000s.

I used to tell people I was a Hellenic Pagan when I lived under a rock and hadn't met a lot of those, but they're pretty not nicetm a lot of the time and so I've kinda just... veered off from that. That's all the pertinent stuff, at the moment anyway.

Pagan Reconstructionists are a weird bunch. I could never dig about them is their forgiveness for classical-world values. The ancient world was cool in some ways, but WHACK AS FUCK in other ways.

Hellenic Reconstructionists are weird and not in a good way.  And I say that as someone who did two years of Classical Studies.

But at least they're not Nordic pagans. That stuff is just cringeworthy, even when it isn't fantastically racist.

Honestly, this place is very labyrinthine and I'm kinda intimidated by the whole forum, so I'll go get a few recipes from my mom and buy my way into the hearts of the PD masses with food.

And yeah, I like the myth, mostly, but a lot of it just outright unpleasant. I may be working on a vastly cynical and licentious myth-reworking because I somehow think I'm qualified to dismantle the Hellenic afterlife.

I can work with that.  Also, the grenade turned out to be a light socket, so there's that.  Of course, this distinction took two hours to make, so I got a fair amount of reading done while the other schmucks did the hard work.

however, after the unfortunate discovery of the possibility of the facebook gods watching me fap, i decided to leave facebook... so i spent the next two or so years devizing plans on taking over the world and of course shutting down facebook... since then i have given up on defeating facebook since now others are starting to do the same...

*nods, but my new noble goal is to start a new epoch of classical music specifically called The Capeditiean Epoch. *nods,

I also happen to be the gnosis goddess of art and creativity. which my primary name is Eris Sophia Capeditiea. :3 whether or not i am that Eris is fully up to you, although i don't mind either way. :D Just don't send me popcorn in the mail on a hot summer day. :O i have a horrible story of eating popcorn which may be told later in detail.

Thank You

My primary name is E Pluribus Unum, which is of course a filthy lie.  It's more like E Pluribus Fundum.

Anyway, welcome to the board.  A word, though:  Being zany is fine, but you might consider keeping it to the zany threads.

1.  Who the hell are you, and how did you find this place?
Hi.  I'm a practitioner of applied and practical magic, or, in more common parlance, something like an electronic engineer.  In the interests of not getting sued by The Association, I had best clarify that I'm not a Licensed Professional.  I don't need it for my job, I can't be bothered to go through the paperwork, and it's not like my screwups are going to make people lose body parts.  Admittedly, using my company's "products" may contribute to stress-related cardiovascular disease and/or hair loss, but that's all on you.  You need to mellow out, or go with one of our competitors instead.

Anyway, I spend a lot of time trying to use math to extract signal from noise.  I found this place by following the noise.

Quote
You're a cop, right?  Yeah you are.  Or you're wearing a wire.  I can smell that shit,
*sniff*  Oh, that.  That's not me.  A marketing guy walked by the HVAC intake, earlier.

Quote
2.  Why on Earth would you join a religion that worships a Greek God...And not just ANY Greek God, but the one all the OTHER Greek Gods thought was a troublemaker?  You're just asking for it, you know.
What makes you think I joined up?  I never said I joined up.  I'm not the joining-up type.

I joined up because, as a militant agnostic, I'm down with any religion that doesn't make truth claims, and I've always wanted to belong to a doomsday cult.

Quote
3.  Do you know any good recipes?  Because we have a section for that, and I'm trying to learn to cook.
Sure.

Take 2 parts sulfur, 3 parts charcoal, and 15 parts saltpeter, measured by weight.  Grind ingredients to a fine powder, and mix thoroughly.  Add nutmeg and cinnamon to taste.  Flambť in kirschwasser.

That's cool.

I tried doing some witchcraft a couple weeks back, but I had trouble getting the wires to stay in place, burned my finger on the soldering iron, and then the plastic started to melt (thermal conductivity is a bitch).  Clearly, not everything is designed with solderability in mind.

So I sat back and thought about what I really wanted, and ended up going to Home Despot to buy a 250V wall socket, plug, and (almost, but not quite) matching wall plate.  It was unsatisfying and inelegant, like swatting a mosquito with a used pineapple, but it got the job done.

Hi!

I'm dizz. Late 20s and mostly directionless, I work a desk job and its pretty boring but I take the time to read, listen, and create. I like a little of everything macabre and spooky, occult or spiritual.

I keep reading about PD and it kept coming to my attention over and over again, especially as I was moving through literature about consciousness, Leary and Wilson and the like. Well holy shit guys, after some curious web searching, I found you. You seem like some properly open folks here.

There's less shitty ways to cool down the climate then fans, there are secret carbon scrubbers world wide now, not so much because they want to keep them a secret, but because people would complain about the costs.

We don't answer you because we are the uncaring, faceless Mgt.

And wind turbines are how Richter cuts his way into alternate universes.  They are very sharp, very dangerous.  They are the katana of the bird world.

But can you weaponize storms with them? Sort of how building nuclear reactors everywhere makes schorched earth tactic much more effortless to pull off or dams are just a flood waiting to happen.

I'm pretty sure fuckushima accident was just all waveplants plugged in backwards in a right sequence+underwater nuke to throw off seismographs.

I forgot to leave my face at the door, should I take it off? I don't even know if I can take it off, the experience would probably make me a whole another person.

Also tell Richter his scale is busted, I can never get up to 23.
