Principia Discussion / Re: Explaining Ourselves
« on: March 05, 2019, 12:26:30 am »
This thread made me smile a lot. :D

One small, tiny, plank-length metaphysics quibble. I find this is a common "rake in the grass" when first getting to know Discordia from the historical materials, and Greg Hill once sermonized on early usenet posts on the topic. Disorder =/= Chaos

[ Order --><-- Disorder ]                 <------ Chaos

Confusing these grids causes a lot more non-meaning in our holy nonsense.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled quantum static.

 :lulz: Thanks. I've been dealing with my own personal mental health shit, and this place has always been good for that.


Also, I some-how ended up managing the "Discordianism" page on Facebook  :evil: (along with a few other spags), and needed content. ;)

All people are dead, except those who know.
All those who know are dead, except those who practice.
All those who practice are dead, except those who act.
All those who act are lost, except those who act with righteous intent.
And those who act with righteous intent
are all in grave danger.


-Dzouíl-Noun, 12th century Sufi poet

I wonder if there's something keeping track of statistics. If so, does it just like, use human ideas of "things" to calculate what the groups of particles are (Y'know, so if one of these simulation engineers wanted to watch some good old fashioned, rough and tumble slimy, lubed up super sex they could switch to it instead of any other situation where carbon, water, and various other elements are moving in and out of each other repeatedly), or does reality abstract everything on the large scale and only turn on the particle physics when someone's looking closely? Are sex and driving and writing and fighting all their own separate but seamlessly integrated sub-systems?  Are we actually just living in the final version of Dwarf Fortress?

I think Bethesda designed the universe.

It would explain a lot about the general lack of playtesting and overall bugginess and stability issues.  Like black holes everywhere and dark matter.

AHAHAHAHA!

Someone let RHWN know that he's a monumental failure.

I would, but he blocked me from his fart-huffing google group.

Oh wow, first I saw this result out of Maine. HAHAHAHA.  :lulz: :lulz: :lulz: :lulz:

Oh, hi.  :evilmad: :fnord: :eek:

Aneristic Illusions / NSA Insider Book: Untangling the Web

Seems to be one guy at the NSA's view of Chapel Perilous. The scanned intro makes me wonder if this wing of the Chapel had any influence.  :fnord:

Now, at 650 pages, there's far too much to go into in depth here, but fortunately, as you can see from the table of contents...

you don't have to go very far before this takes a hard turn into "Dungeons and Dragons campaign/Classics major's undergraduate thesis" territory. The preface employs a comical number of metaphors to describe what the internet is and isn't - sometimes two a paragraph. But don't take our word for it! According to the NSA, the internet is ...

A Persian's personal library:

Sisyphus' boulder ...

A Freudian psycho-sexual pleasure palace ...

A Borgesian world-consuming knowledge-cancer ...

A labyrinth (with bonus Mino-Troll):

Two quick asides - one, in case your memory needed jogging as to what a clew was, the footnote helpfully provides that information ...

and two, before you cry foul that the beast in the center of the labyrinth is clearly a centaur, Ovid technically just describes the Minotaur as "half-man and half-bull" without specifying which half is which, so that interpretation is valid, if a bit needlessly obscure. But while we're on the subject of pedantic footnotes ...

A shape-changing sea-god:

And finally, jumping ahead 600 pages, an endless frontier/a cemetery of dead ideas/a reminder of your aunt's 15-minutes of fame:

Yeah, still around.... sometimes.

This follows the 5 cycles/seasons, as presented in the Appendices of the Illuminatus! Trilogy: Chaos, Discord, Confusion, Bureaucracy, Aftermath.
Also known as Thesis(this), Anti-Thesis(that), Synthesis(both), Parentheses(neither), Paralysis(loosening or shutting down of the old order to allow something new or in-between to emerge).
