:tinfoilhat:

That's about all I can say at this point.

The words ('birth') and 'think big' are kinda giving away the punchline a bit too early IMO.

Might be better if the reader has to work that shit out themselves.

Well, I put the ("Birth") part in, because it implies that it's written in invisible ink on your mum's uterus.

Maybe it was one of those things that started off as a good idea, but as more and more ideas got piled on top of it, it glowed, and stank of fail and rotting flesh.

But isn't unification trying to impose a consensus and so part of the Aneristic delusion?

I thought that was the intended scope of the question.  To show a happenstance of a perceived lack of order, within which, by the introduction of aneristic principles, a better state of being was reached, is how I understood the question.

(tangent for the History of Discordia booklet: in what period of history would Discordians instigate Order rather than Disorder?)

Genghis Khan could be called a discordian in this sense.  When the norm for northeast Asia was warring nomadic tribes, he sought to unite under a common tribe, so food, and  basic necessities were more easily available, as well as increased defenses, etc.

Easy.  But, don't delete your rant pls.

Researchers at the Maharishi School of Management in Fairfield, Iowa, found that meditation has a pervasive effect on stress. They looked at a group of people who had meditated for four months and found that they produced less of the stress hormone cortisol.

How many times has this been verified?

And...

"Maharishi School of Management"?

I could dig up sources showing that meditation has a positive effect on stress. I could also dig up sources that show tibetan monks having the physiologic ability to increase their body temperature to the point where they can dry freezing wet robes draped over them.

Neither of those things have to do with religion though, and certainly nothing paranormal. Its all very powerful psychosomatic responce. Very interesting, and very useful, and also very physical in its evidence. No paranormal shit here.

Paranormal ≠ spiritual.

Paranormal = religion.

I think it's an important distinction.

Hey...how did you get the not-equals sign? Alt + what?

If anything we should do more to endeavor that none of us can be linked together by an institution.

Nonlocal quantum telepathy ftw!

REJACK:

A good question in considering this idea is; What happens should we choose to shift in our methods?  How many people will turn away from what discordianism would become, because it's no longer their flavor?

Half of me wants to say Well, fuck them, then.  If they can't hang, let them find something else.  However, if we assume this mentality, how long until it takes a shift I don't like, or you don't like?  How long until we have a plethora of discordian sects, and a crippling amount of in-fighting?

I suppose you could argue that this is already the case, there are the Loveshades, the Mahadjiqkal Erisians, the Myspacers, us PD.com freaks, subgenii, etc.  In my opinion, these groups are still working towards a shared goal, waking up cabbages, and having fun doing it.  The last thing we need is to end up cancelling each other out.

Stick apart but work together.

I think all these ideas need to be mushed together.  Here's my best effort, after reading the replies chronologically.

While risking the perils of a sort of 'secret society',  we need to take a step back, out of the light and into the shadows.  Almost taking on a form of greyfaced hierarchy, those in the shadows devise the phony doctrines and ideas, and disseminate them into the proper hotbeds (myspace loldiscordians maybe?), give it to the kids.  LHX and ECH can write 'counter-culture' lyrics and anonymously send them to eminem and young jeezy.  Get something with enough momentum, especially after the CoN has shifted it's defenses, and there will be a snap back to their old memes, reflexes kicking in, they can't fight two things at once.  At least not two things so diametrically opposed.  They'll have to choose, and the choice will hinge on which presents a greater threat.  After the smoke clears, we can emerge from the shadows.

Has anyone else noticed that thinking about posting in a thread that ASS just posted in is kinda like thinking about fucking that hot chick who you know got boned by that one guy with the warts on his dick?

I'm gonna go take a shower now....

What does that make posting in a thread he started, then?

This is awesomly awesome, Cain.  I'll post a more detailed reply later, after I have some time to roll this around in my head, but definitely one of the best things I have read in awhile!
