Or Kill Me / Re: Discordianism and the Mathematical Mind

It's a tough sell, because scientists are finding "rules" for chaos.  That's what chaos theory is about.  Not how to deal with chaos, but finding rules of motion for seemingly chaotic events.


So, a scientist explaining chaos is much different than an Erisan.  In fact, I think a layman would understand the Erisian view before the scientific.

However, I also think a layperson would be incredibly tough to convince that embracing Disorder to achieve Chaotic balance is a positive thing.

I'm currently trying to mash Kraftwerk and Nomeansno into something, and I got several dozen more samples crying out to be used, so there theoretically should be at least 8 more tracks to be created.

While you were ranting there, an idea occurred to me regarding this whole sad state of affairs.  My mind went back into military mode and I saw the obvious advantages of co-opting subversive doctrine but then I looked beyond that.

Your opponent's defenses will always be optimized against the weapon he knows you have and, to a lesser degree, to the weapons he only thinks you may have.  In this line of reasoning, then, it becomes apparent that the prudent thing to do in order to amplify our meager forces is to put forth a doctrine for all to see which, when optimized against, leaves several fatal flaws in your opponents armour.  If done properly, these flaws should be recognized as acceptable from your opponent's defensive posture.

Naturally the converse is equally true.  For this I look no further than my childhood friend, Br'er Rabbit.  What we want is to let them convince themselves to attack a tar baby while simultaneously concluding that the worst thing they can do to us is toss us all into the briar patch.

So now I'm in search of a tar baby and a briar patch......

Good idea.


I'll put this all in the mind-pot and bring it to a boil...  We'll see if it makes soup.

2 things to note:

1. The change in EQ at the end signifies the bit I wrote in summary.  Don't blame Cain if it's shit.

2. In MS Word, standard formatting, Times New Roman 12 pt font, a single page takes about 4 minutes to read.

So, we can win the war on terror if we cease the war on (some) drugs?

Oh, yeah.  It was taken off of POEE because it needed another page added to it.

There's also the pdf of the pamphlet, and check the "interesting shit from back in the day" thread to see if there's more summed up commentary.
