good re-frame


All Affirmations are True in Some Sense, False in Some Sense, Meaningless in Some Sense, True and Meaningless in Some Sense, False and Meaningless in Some Sense, True and False in Some Sense, AND TRUE, FALSE, AND MEANINGLESS ..in some sense.


Wilson would have said All Affirmations are Models with Truth Value Ranges of .000000000000000000001% to 99.999999999999999999%, but apply the wrong model to the current context and the results are meaningless.

Or something like that...

Haha - gotcha!  If you believe it is possible to apply the wrong model, you must therefore believe there exists a right model.

Or - alternatively: Funny you should mention meaninglessness as I've been dabbling in absurdism lately.  Do you mean to say that all models are wrong (in some sense) and therefore meaningless?  (in some sense)

on the flip side, i think we now live in a post-truth world (a quick search reveals i am not the first person to think this and it was 2016 word of the year) *

but what that means to me is that, for any given set of beliefs (within reason) it is now so easy to find anecdotal evidence to support these beliefs that you can literally believe whatever you want and back it up with FACTS 

I think what sets discordians apart from greyfaces (or normies or NPCs or whatever suits you) is that discordians are aware that you can change your beliefs system (BS or reality tunnel or decoder ring) to suit your whimsy while those other lesser types that we are so much better than are unable to realize that their BS is no better than anyone else's BS.

does this make discordianism a meta-decoder ring?


* see?  i believed something, and easily backed it up with FACT therefore I AM RIGHT!

does objective reality exist?  if so, wouldn't the existence of objective reality imply that some decoder rings are, in fact, "more right" than others?

6
how is a decoder ring different from a reality tunnel? 

does reality exist without the tunnel?  can it be perceived without a tunnel?
