Hi there! I don't follow the question.


'why we incarnate in a racial avatar' - what do you mean by that?

I will say, this seems like the left hand path, but to each their own! I don't judge and am here to learn. :)\

for some people, duh-duh-discordia is consistent with the LHP. But for others, it's not.


the principia is a mirror, you can get a lot of stuff from it

Somebody (on FB) was talking about meeting him at Esozone 08. I asked if they were talking about "Call me Dr" Ben Mack, genuine shithead & author of Poker Without Cards?

Ben appeared and asked why I thought he was a shithead. I mentioned that we'd had an "encounter" on a Discordian forum many years ago. (and left it at that)

But now, because I've responded to him, FB thinks I want to see more of his posts. So now I can see that when people post links to a book or author, he replies and says "I prefer this take", and links to the amazon page of something he wrote under a pen name.

sneaky little self-marketer  :roflcake:


I just posted this thread 'cause I assumed he'd probably sniff around here after I referenced it. Hi Ben Mack! :wave:

The forum is a mirror



but not like how the Principia is a mirror


the forum is more like one of those mirrors you put in a bird cage so the bird thinks she's socializing



except the bird is a bonobo

Is heaven just a method to get people to pull down their/zip up there - pants?  :eek:

The most cynical take on religion would say Heaven / Hell is just a motivational tool.

The old Hebrew word for Hell, Sheol, really refers to the shaded slope on the west side of the city of Jerusalem, where everyone threw their garbage. "When you die, you go to Sheol", in a literal sense means that if your life wasn't worth anything, we just throw you in the trash.

Is Christianism compatible with Santaism?

in a yin/yang sense

in the Jungian Shadow sense


compatible as in symbiotic

Is Paul (The so-called "apostle") the most successful cult leader of all time?

He's up there, but he was drinking from the Old Egyptian punch bowl.

Arguably the most successful cult leader was the dude who originally converted Paul.

The early apostles had an idea - they wanted to capture some of the real powerful ancient ideas from Pre-Sand Egypt. Christian ceremonies were not invented by these old patriarchs, they were borrowed from an older (non-jewish) form. They retold the Mithras/Horus/etc stories as current events so that people wouldn't get hung up on the other egyptian baggage. Paul et al cut out the dances and physical movements in Egyptian ceremonies, repackaged the concepts as something new, called it Christianity.


So the root question is - who converted Paul?

I wrote a new Bible book, where can I submit it?

Did the pink laser hit you in the third eye?

Was the book written using your Pineal Gland?

If not, submit it to the fuckin trash


and if it was divinely inspired & written with your pineal gland, submit it to the fuckin trash harder

New Year's Resolutions piss me off. If it's important, and you resolve to do it, how often does the realization happen on Dec. 31 or Jan. 1?

these days, I love it.
I am always searching for "shocks" which might shake me out of my routine



you only ask yourself the big questions after a tragedy

It's easy to live in the moment, just responding to day to day concerns. It's important to take a moment to look at your entire life and your greater context and make a decision about it. But you can't do that while you're in the micro.

new years is a hook, it makes you think about the last year - you could use it to zoom out and self-evaluate.



Last year, my new years resolution was to give up Irony on the Internet. Now I don't troll, and I don't flinch about the crappy stuff I actually like.

I don't have a firm resolution yet this year... maybe this will be the year that I figure out the next step of my career.

In American politics-----

When we come out of the Trump Times, we will be reborn.

One of the reasons I think American politics has been jammed is our inability to consicely articulate the real sides and stakes. Trump is a human embodiement of what's wrong, and as such, can be used as shorthand symbol. (sort of like how Hitler is a moral touchstone) If Trump's exit is spectacular enough, then no one remotely like him will be able to follow the act.

tl;dr accelerationism, but the good kind

I think they'd have a lot less problems if they stopped calling it a chicken.


kind of a 'ship of theseus' question here - how much DNA can you swap out and still call it a chicken?



but I guess we want gene-hacked people to still be human, so maybe it's better to think of it as a mutant-chicken than as something new

I'm also replaying skyrim with a "kill as few people as possible" style. No weapons, focusing on illusion. I've only swung a sword once in the whole game, and it was to kill Ulfric Stormcloak.

Getting through a dungeon using Fear spells is fun -- you disperse the enemies, then in like 2 minutes they come back with friends. You send them all running. Eventually you have pushed all the enemies into the final room of the dungeon with the boss, and just frenzy them all.

Illusion is such an underrated school. I think one of the most unsettling things in Skyrim is when a guy is about to rip your head off, you Pacify him, and he's aware of what's happening. Says something like "Oh don't do that", like he's aware that he is a sitting duck that his Fight-or-Flight response is jammed.


I'm basically replaying it 'cause the PS4 special edition was on sale. It sucks that there aren't a lot of good mods for ps4! I was so excited to take on Randy "Macho Man" World Eater, but nooooooo, not available. I've played so much of this game, the only juice left is stuff I haven't discovered yet, and there isn't a lot of that left.
