Just wondering whether we have any 'Pataphysicians or at least any Alfred Jarry fans here?

heard of him. Never quite got what 'pataphysics proposed or meant really, but it was cool looking at it. I think maybe now I sort of get some of it in context. It kinda is like discordianism. The clinamen and syzygzy to me mean that they are different recurring patterns that sometimes occur in a chaotic system. Lead me to surrealism too, and that was a trip.

But since everyone answers differently whenever I ask, I'll ask you: What is 'Pataphysics?

As far as I can tell it makes fun of stupid things, which means that I like it.
