Title: The Truth About Discordianism (Stay Tuned For More)
Post by: Pope Pelvis Flirtini on June 16, 2017, 05:23:30 am
Discordianism is the appreciation of chaos, not always an excuse to seek it out.

Chaos in the face of overwhelming order, yes. Things, however, are not in order. Struggle for chaos now is not warranted.

In the face of overwhelming chaos, the Discordian has no choice but to be uncharacteristically orderly... but not at all times.

I assume you posted this in Discordian Recipes to spite order?

Also, I would argue order is part of chaos, but that's a personal nitpick.

Maybe yours is.  Mine is the deliberate sowing of chaos. 

Except when it's not.

You're doing it wrong.

The truth about Discordianism is the same as the truth about everything else: It's a sham and a hoax, and it won't end well for anyone.

It started as a casual lie to get hired, but spiraled completely out of control.

My Discordia is that we are always in a natural state of chaos, our culture is tulmut, it is a complementary reflection of the perfectly ordered universe, that has always been ordered, will always be ordered.  Whether you act orderly or disorderly matters not.

I would also disagree that we are in a time of overwhelming chaos, we are in a time of overwhelming confusion, it appears chaotic, where opportunist politicians use that to their advantage, they are the greyface, and though their actions now seem chaotic,they have a grim and predictable outcome

I try to keep Discordia as far away from my self as possible. She's gross and weird and mean.

I was going to say how disappointing this recipe was, but then I remembered the candied yams. Now I'm REALLY disappointed.

Discordianism is

an attitude


my attitude:
CHAOS is the book in which ORDER and DISORDER are written
CHAOS is the raw universe, "Outrageous as a sea, dark, wasteful, wild", but brimming with potential energy

there's a way of understanding things
a way which is outside of order and disorder, outside of reason and emotion,
formless, therefore objective,
the source
the spirit of the valley
the crack in What Is
the seed growing from What Isn't

the banana cream pie
                                in flight
the banana peel
                         you just stepped on

what your face looked like
                                      before you were born
the self
            that has no face
                                     

                          after the wild circus

Quote from: The Chao te Ching, Chapter 4
This is Chaos: it is everything, including itself.
All of Starbuck's Pebbles come from it.
It confuses Order, it arranges Disorder.
It multiplies its opposite, it positively negates.
Lying below life, lining the world.
The origin of all patterns.
It has existed before we observed it.
Ok, that last one's not quite accurate.
You can't really observe Chaos, just the consequences.

Your Discordia can be whatever you want it to be. That's the beauty of it; your Discordianism is about YOU, so it also serves as an effective means of figuring out who to avoid.

I can't tell you, Faust, how happy it makes me to see you're still using my graphics for your icon.

I'm surprised at all. It is an incredible piece of art.

At first I used it as a joke, but I have grown fond of it, it is your art though so I should ask if it's ok?

I wish I could say yes, but the truth is that I'm an idiot.

Speaking of being an idiot, I often get chaos confused with disorder and both of them confused with confusion.

Nah, it's just some Google images I threw together. Besides, asking permission wouldn't be very Discordian, would it?

I tried avoiding myself once, but it made things really awkward for everyone else.

Most people do, and I am also an idiot. Welcome aboard!
