Think for Yourself, Schmuck! / New Proposal for the Secret of Life
« on: December 10, 2006, 03:23:56 pm »
So after years of whatever, this is the best I can come up with at this point:


The 'Secret' of 'Life' (or however you want to refer to this experience) is this:

There is a 'flow of nature'
You can temporarily disrupt this 'flow of nature' and send it in a different direction (other than how it was moving before).
When you do this, it gives you a temporary illusion of control.
Eventually the pressure builds and pops whatever it is that was causing the disruption and the flow of nature is restored.

This can be repeated or not depending on how you feel.



Ill prolly refine this later.

Enjoy.


Please feel free to bash or dismantle.

Think for Yourself, Schmuck! / The Moon
« on: December 08, 2006, 04:02:26 pm »
How does it relate to TDN/BIP?

We would prolly figure out what the moon is all about if we blew it up (by process of elimination).

lol


But seriously, how do you approach things that may have more symbolic significance than actual significance?

(Or the other way around)

I think i read the instructions wrong

Quote from: LMNO
Listen to beats.

Choose one, and write Appropriate Lyrics, preferably not about how cool you are, how much money you have, or about bitches.

i got more bills than ducks
make more connections than internet trucks
what? you stuck?
im made from particles of luck
yup
thats right
dont even try to fight me
i got that uppercut to send you thru the air like nikes
my skill makes you not like me
when i go on vacation, your girl writes me
sometimes 3 times a day
i told the bitch to stay away
she told me not a chance and that she can hardly sleep
ever since that night i taught her how to say things tongue-in-cheek
she stutters when she speaks to me
it make her knees weak
oh sorry bout the stains in the back of your jeep
some things cant be contained
like my bank roll or my lyric game
putting chumps to shame
since the days of crayolas and board games
i stimulate like cocaine -
you cover up like rogaine
i glide the path to more fame -
youre on a rocket ship to more lame
im so cool i heal burn victims
and you can skate on my sperm gizzem
tried to warn you but you dont listen
you only sound smart when you quote my wisdom


lol at least the pencil still works

Think for Yourself, Schmuck! / The Fear and Desire Loop
« on: December 06, 2006, 04:40:52 pm »
Talk about Black Iron Prisons

on the one hand people are scared of the unknown

on the other hand people are chasing illusionary goals


this cycle perpetuates itself as people run away from what they fear and run toward what they desire, never escaping or fulfilling except for in short-term stimulating experiences


meanwhile, the unknown has done nothing to warrant it being something worth fearing
and it has already been established that everything we could possibly want/need is well within reach on this planet


the only way out of that loop is to eventually be crushed by it
or
to literally bust out of it


to bust out the loop / prison - a person needs to recognize it

Think for Yourself, Schmuck! / The Vocabulary of Your Audience
« on: December 06, 2006, 01:40:32 am »
You need to use the vocabulary of your audience.


Ciphers lead to segregation.


UNLESS
you produce something that sounds SO MUTHAFUCKIN DOPE

that heads will feel it regardless of whether or not they can understand it


but even so:
if your objective is to get your point across
if you dont use your audience's lexicon, you are just as well off (perhaps better off) just shutting your mouth and maybe taking a rest
or go for a walk
or some such activity.


To some people, "Big" is the Milky Way Galaxy
To other people, "Big" is a jumbo snickers bar wiff 30% extra

Or Kill Me / When Good Gets Too Good
« on: December 03, 2006, 11:59:32 pm »
One of the pillars of growing up in the modern day Fairy Tale life is the notion of 'following your heart.'

This seems to correspond roughly to following hunches.

Follow your hunches even in the face of adversity.
Follow your hunches when the people around you are heading one direction, but there is something telling you to head in the other.

But what do you do if 'following your heart' consists of going against the very system that advised you to follow your heart?

LOL

Go ahead and ask them.

It's fun to hear people back pedal.

"Well, that's not exactly what we meant, honey."

In the Fairy Tale books, they didn't put stipulations on the whimsy.

"Follow your heart unless it entails dismantling the destructive society of which you are a part. If that situation arises, please stop following your heart, and just follow these simple rules..."


Oops.


I read something somewhere some time (for some reason I think it was McLuhan) that detailed the notion that it would be eventually calamitous for a society to raise their children with images of super heroes and then expect them to obediently ease into a button-pushing desk job.

How are you gonna grow up admiring those figures that didn't go down easy, and then end up being the type of person that goes down easy?

LOMFL



WELL...

I guess liquor and drugs help snuff this out.

The curse of resilient able-bodied youth works against a lot of people, as there seems to be a constant 'do it tomorrow' mentality - WHICH DOES MAKE SENSE for the most part, until (- again LOL -) KABOOM all the caffeine and cigarettes and fast food turn a person into a soft, neurotic - albeit sharp-witted - person with little agility.

These elements help break people down into becoming the type that go down easy.


That's beside the main point here.

The point is that there are situations where people will advise you to go against the advice that they themselves gave you.

Yeah, read that again.

They will give you heroic advice today - that age old wisdom.

The rallying cry.

But sometimes a person is a part of the problem that the wisdom would seek to alleviate.

giggle giggle giggle

Irony


On the old 'do as I say, not as I do' mentality.

People get into these situations.


The student finds out that his teacher was in the thick of all the bad shit that he was preaching against.

The student loves his teacher, but...



There is another side to this - the exploration of 'when does somebody know they are really right, or if they are just nuts'

This is the territory we get into when we talk about people with a subversive point of view 'becoming organized'

"What makes you so sure you are right?"

Well...

Perhaps its not so much a matter of knowing when you are right, but being in a position to react when you recognize that something is wrong.


The days of being able to 'get away with something' are coming to a end - even for those who are either ignorant of their misdeeds, or seek to cover them up by preaching words that sound right.


That goes for me too.

If you see me doing wrong...

Please, by all means...

srsly

Think for Yourself, Schmuck! / RIP The Discordian Network: The Highlights
« on: December 03, 2006, 07:31:18 pm »
August 2006: In the wake of the PD.com forum crash, and riding the strength of the PD06 exploration, The Discordian Network forum developed.

Originally a forum that RWHN had registered and was toying with, it developed into the center for the discussion aimed at fleshing out the philosophies presented in and related to PD, as well as compiling new Discordian material to be broadcast or distributed.

It was kept free of nonsense for the most part, and though it had been predominantly quiet in the weeks before it died, it had developed into a useful resource.

The highlights from the TDN forum:

- The general continuation of PD06 matters that were started in this forum
 - this includes BIP affairs
- A renewal of SSOOKN investigation and development and a inventory of related writings
- Further probes into linguistics and the nature of communication
- Recent discussions regarding the nature of technology and robotics


Maybe this latest forum crash can serve as opportunity to take a look at where we are at now after that surge from April/May to August.

Opportunity to gather some stuff together and see where the 'We' stands at this point, as a vague collective in the process of doing a vague something.

Comedy
Philosophy
Spirituality
Technology
Bar Stools
Symbolism

PD07 and so on



a reminder that:
Inspiration (still) Requires Original Notions

Or Kill Me / Short Circuirt CMXLIII - It's Good When the Slaves Fight
« on: December 03, 2006, 03:34:39 pm »
The slaves get treated bad to the point where they would rather be bought than kept in the holding grounds any longer.

The suspicion is that after they get bought, they will be taken to better grounds and get treated better.

So they get encouraged to turn on each one another.

See - that dude over there - his posts are wack. He got a big ego. You don't want him on your team.

That dude over there - he's all talk and no action. Plus I heard he makes noise when he sleep.

She's a drunk. You don't wanna pick her.


That public appeal be the slave master that got people jumping through hoops now.

This is the only situation that could cause people in the same situation to turn on one another.

Instead of collaborating different points of view, dudes wanna kill the next motherfucker that says something different.

A strange program got uploaded into peoples heads: it says "If people listen to that motherfucker, then they ain't gonna listen to you. Then he is gonna get taken somewhere better while you stay stuck here."

Seriously - thats what the program says.

So now these motherfuckers be trying to mame you from the knee down, then take your best shit and step on your head while they run past you to claim it as their own.

That's the best type of slave that help keep this system in place.

Dudes buy into the illusion of greener grass on the other side SO MUCH that they will beat you AND take your shit AND tell you its your own fault AND try to sell it back to you after (maybe after a little re-packaging) in order to try to grab that thing that isnt even there.

Not only that, but motherfuckers will even listen to what you say, and they are smart enough now to twist your words and make it sound like you said the opposite.


One dude be like: "I'm here to help"
next dude be like: "Yo you hear that? He's the devil and he's gonna fuck your wife."

Literate Chaotic / Letting People Fend for Themselves
« on: November 30, 2006, 04:08:49 pm »
What is the problem with letting people fend for themselves?

Why do so many people develop that 'heroic' tendency to swoop in when there is a perceived injustice?


For me personally, when I see somebody drop money or a credit card, or if I see somebody dent a car and then speed off - I don't do shit.

In fact, I am liable to keep my eyes on the dropped money and try to swoop in and grab it if nobody is looking.


BUT

When I see people being personally and needlessly interfered with - a woman on the bus getting harrassed by a drunk, or a kid getting his ass whooped by bigger people, I can't stop myself from stepping in.



Personally, again, there is a deference between a person being directly and unnecessarily interfered with that prompts me to action, whereas anything to do wiff property, or anything that is the result of a person's own ignorance, I am more than content to sit back and let nature take its course.


What brought this to mind was a discussion I had recently about what 'justice' would be like in a society with no laws.


There is a difference in situations that I can't exactly describe in words.

But it has something to do with the difference between
a) people being disrupted or preyed upon unnecessarily
b) people walking face first into their own trouble
c) letting grown people have the opportunity to fend for themselves
d) letting nature take its course



Any thoughts on this?

(Postscript: also possibly related to this discussion: sociopaths who have no feeling of attachment toward anything)

Or Kill Me / LHX - short circuits - part 4426.7B - on the subject of thanks
« on: November 23, 2006, 07:26:31 pm »
this fuckin sentimental nonsense

like there need to be a particular day where people take a 'time out' from demolishing the planet to get nostalgic about family and eating food

motherfuck

i give thanks for the way i some how keep waking up without trying after every time i fall asleep

thankful that the Powers That Be‚Ѣ give me just enough room that i dont yet have a excuse to wreck shit wiff impunity and say 'i had no choice'


no
but for truth

if i had to pick something that i was thankful for it be like:

thankful that i can see its only a matter of time before bad shit crumbles
and that there is good things thats enduring

thankful for a network of people that are working toward putting this process in motion

a network of people that provide enough re-enforcement to keep plugging away down this path

thankful i have contact with people that dont cry victim despite having been thrust into a unenviable situation


aight yo lets hold hands and sing now

or maybe go be thankful for some food that grows without effort
and manages to still grow despite our best attempts to fuck it up and accidentally kill all known life

Literate Chaotic / She Tried to Swallow Me Whole
« on: September 13, 2006, 03:36:16 pm »
Bitch

I'm telling you yo - I was just minding my own business and day dreaming.

She acted like it was nuthin.
Hollered from across the street. Called my name out. Signalled for me to cross and come talk to her.

On some 'haven't-seen-you-in-a-while-how-you-been?' tip.

Fine, thank-you, miss.

I was about to tell her she looked lovely as ever, but I noticed something was off today.

Not nothing in particular. More like a bunch of little things that when you added it all together the sum comes out to 'trouble'.

Trouble.

Check out the short-comings of the written language.

It was more like

TROUBLE[/glow][/shadow][/b][/i][/u]

If yall were watching this on a tv episode of a show called 'The Adventures of X' or 'LHX Walks the Globe', yall would be like "NO X GET THE FUCK OUTTA THERE'.

But still, you need to understand: it was early. And its one thing to be in the thick of it, and another thing to be on the outside watching.

And if you saw the way her ass was pokin out in real life, yall might have not been too quick to pick up on the signs neither.

I was dressed in what became my standard issue ever since they kicked me out when I fell asleep at the library. Beige pants, wallabees, dress shirt, beige Kangol. That way, I can still fall asleep at the library, but they don't kick me out because I look like I might be able to get them fired.
No jewels on.

In a span of a short period of time, she told me the following:
1. Her man was gone.
2. Her kids was at her mom's.
3. She had some good weed.
4. (After I told her I ain't smoked in over 2 years) She don't smoke much anymore and is gonna quit.
5. She was gonna go back to school.
6. She had been practicing yoga for a few months.
7. She was about to inherit some $$ from a recently deceased relative.
8. She was thinking of doing some modelling.

I also seemed to be picking up some signals from her chestal and groin region.

I told her about the internet, the Annunaki, UFO's, Yacub, and a little bit about Discordianism, but she thought I was kidding.

I think she wasn't really listening to what I had to say.

Even though I am a man, that hurts a little.

She asked me if I wanted to come check out her new place. There was invisble forces kicking me in the back of the knees (which I have come to find out that she was responsible for), but I still managed to say no.

Then she said she was about to do some cooking, so I said yes.

If you were to do a study on this situation, your likely conclusion would be that this is the point where the story ended.
Like how when you are playing chess, and you make one wrong move and then the other person has complete control the rest of the game.

She stopped to get a coffee on the way back to her pad. While we were there, she went to the washroom.

The perfume she put on fucked my head up, and from that moment on I could no longer think straight.

Like Lex Luthor was dressed in disguise and he slipped on a kryptonite ring that Superman didn't notice.

I'm not saying the perfume smelled good. I'm just saying that the fragrance fucked my head up and I couldnt think straight.

They don't test that shit on animals any more because it would kill them. Now it kills us.

I hate perfume.


As soon as the elevator doors closed at her apartment building, she began consuming me.

If a outsider was looking at the situation, maybe he would have thought some hot liquid had somehow spilled in her panties because of the speed at which she got them off.

It was shortly there after when I had a moment of clarity, beyond the reaches of her perfume, that I noticed she was trying to consume me.

And I realized that she wasn't actually even gonna cook anything.

Her apartment was clean, but the fruit in the fruit bowl had gone bad.

In a last ditch effort, I reached deep down and tried to come up with some final defense. I managed to blurt out that I had just remembered that I had a appointment that I couldnt miss.

She said 'what kind of appointment?'

I don't remember if I answered.


Who said light can't escape a black hole?

Literate Chaotic / An Invitation to Closing the Mind?
« on: July 18, 2006, 02:02:32 am »
Yo I ran across a quote today while I was reading a book by Vonnegut:

Quote from: Vonnegut
From Hocus Pocus:
...profanity and obscenity entitle people who don't want unpleasant information to close their ears and eyes to you.


Please weigh in on the above statement from 2 angles:

1 - understanding how unpleasant 'Truth' can be as it is revealed, what are the implications of the above statement?

2 - what does it imply in terms of the approach you would take to communicating to an audience?[/quote]

135
they provide a strong defense
flawless at first glance
up against The Machine‚Ѣ
youd think we have no chance
but it was foretold that victory was pre-determined
so we dont back down
take heed to this sermon
as we march forth
crushing egos, skulls and bones
outmanned and outgunned
with only one route home
snipers on all sides
and spies in our own fort
its tragic, but their efforts are bound to fall short
as we hold court
and hit from angles unseen
up to the neck in the mud
but come out looking clean
confound the minds of those who couldnt distinguish
that we're dealing with a fire that can't be extinguished
we go hard
stampeding down uncharted paths
todays problems cant be solved with yesterdays math
and as for tomorrow: whatever comes - comes
its 11:59 and there's nowhere to run
