ET CETERA DISCORDIA: FINALLY HERE

IT'S HERE! IT'S HERE! IT'S THE LATEST DISCORDIAN HOLYBOOK,
THE ET CETERA DISCORDIA



In 1958 or 1959 (we're not sure which), Eris, the Goddess of Confusion, sent an Emperor Penguin to a bowling alley in California. It appeared before Malaclypse the Younger and Lord Omar Khayyam Ravenhurst and inspired them to create the Discordian Society: a tribe of philosophers, theologians, magicians, scientists, artists, clowns, and similar maniacs.

The Et Cetera Discordia proudly celebrates 50th the anniversary of this prophetic vision. It is a collage of the funny, weird, and often profound writings and art created by numerous modern (and post-modern) Discordians. This book is an invitation to join them in exploring, celebrating, and remixing this strange and exciting century.


A bit of background: Triple Zero and I had this idea back in 2008. The original idea was to create a quick one-shot internet forum which gathered content for quick publication of a new Discordian text. So we threw THE PARTY AT LIMBO PEAK, an intentionally shortlived Internet forum, where people could post anonymously and then later unmask themselves at the end of the party. The project got out of control and we took a million years to finish it. And the finished product is a beautiful 128 page paperback, the latest addition to Grand and Glory Old Discordjia!


Paperback purchase and free ebook version is available RIGHT NOW.

yes! It is released under an attribution-share alike license (with two exceptions, noted on the copyright page). And I hope you DO have your own adventures with this text - collage it, blow up quotes and staple them to trees, make your own version of it in a 3 ring binder so you can move pieces in and out, ET CETERA


If you're distributing stuff from it, and you're not sure who to credit, just point it to the ET CETERA DISCORDIA

Here's our KOPYLEFT page:

After you read this book, it will be in your head.

When you want to create something, you can use just about anything which is inside your head.
Unfortunately, some people believe that ideas are like objects - they think you can own them, and
through that ownership, control them.

In a legal sense, this is true. Mickey Mouse is featured prominently in my childhood memories, but I
do not have the freedom to draw upon those personal experiences in certain ways. I am not legally
allowed to create a new story about Mickey. If I draw him, I can't sell it or hang it up in a classroom.
Part of my imagination belongs to Disney.

In contrast, we are not guarding the information in this book. Unlike Disney, we accept that we
lose control of an idea as soon as it passes our lips. This book is yours. You may photocopy it to
your heart's content. You may cut out the pages and rearrange them. You may write new stuff
based on what you've read here. You can chuck it in a fire for all we care. We call it KopyLeft: All
Rites Reversed.

Malaclypse the Younger and Omar Khayyam Ravenhurst made their own holy book, called the
Principia Discordia. They filled it with words and images that resonated with them. Old ideas were
juxtaposed in a way which created new meaning. They invited all of us to the party. This is the
Strange Times and everybody gets to write their own Bible for a change. Even spags like you.
It's your head, after all. Do what you want with it.
(k) 2008-2009 All Rites Reversed

Well, the first 12 pages look pretty cool.  I assume the rest do as well.

First the moon, now this...
Look, asshole:  Your 'incomprehensible' act, your word-salad, your pinealism...It BORES ME.  I've been incomprehensible for so long, I TEACH IT TO MBA CANDIDATES.  So if you simply MUST talk about your pineal gland or happy children dancing in the wildflowers, go talk to Roger, because he digs that kind of shit
