Quote from: Cramulus on August 15, 2020, 03:16:06 PMMy Discordianism has gotten real weird in the last few years due to running larps, and contact with this Gurdjieff group. My current Discordian practice is incorrectly summarized thusly:-Consciousness is developed through internal conflict. Through self-observation and inner confrontation, over a long period of time, something solid is developed--like a muscle-- a core self that can actually exert free will. Without that solid core, we are automatic machines--cabbages--just reacting but rarely initiating. More consciousness = more free will. The Goddess of Strife, with her pentagon and apple, can take you there. She wants you to be honest with yourself. To see things how they really are. Which is not how we'd like to see thiings.-That games and play are a way of building a new world, exposing people to ideas that can change them, ideas that they may have rejected in another context. Games can be a form of psychic nourishment - you come, you play, you laugh, and then you return to your regular life a little lighter. Sadly, the best way to deliver these experiences are in-person, using our physical bodies -- where we as adults can reconnect with the playful energies that have been in us all along -- so 2020 is not the year for it! But Play is alchemy, it can be transformative. If formulated right, it can transmute hard into soft, it can turn prickle-prickle into sweet... in a different way than religion can.
