The Parable of Steve

by Mesozoic Mister Nigel

 

There was an afternoon one summer when a young man we will call “Steve” happened upon a book like no other he had read. It was on the shelf in his local alternative bookstore, and it was called the “Principia Discordia”.

Steve had always thought himself to be quite the rebellious young man, always speaking out about the Man and the System, but with a sense of HUMOR, goddamnit, a sense of ABSURDITY unlike everyone else he knew; this book, he said to himself, is Important. It finally tells me what I am…I am a Discordian. I must find the others!

It took Steve some time to find other Discordians, time during which he renamed himself Pope Buttercup XXIII. He felt that quite a fitting name for a Discordian. He prided himself in his sense of Absurdity, and especially his skills in Randomness, which he practiced by memorizing passages from the Principia.

He learned on the Internet that the Discordian Society near him met monthly in a café downtown, and after his months of searching he determined the date and the time, and arranged to present himself to them. When he arrived, he found the place nearly deserted except for a group of ten or twelve people clustered in a back corner, arguing. They were of all descriptions, these people; no two seemed to have anything in common, even their styles of dress; they ranged from the glowering pierced goth chick at one corner, who was seated beside a neatly-groomed silver-haired man in a rather nice suit, to the plump middle-aged matron in a V-necked rayon sweater, to the lively trenchcoat geek thumping his opinion about something-or-other loudly in the middle of the table.

Steve said to himself, “These are my people?”

“What a motley crew… well, they’re Discordians, I know how to show them I’m One Of Them.”

He stepped up to the table.

“23PINEALFNORD!” he said boldly, “I am Pope Buttercup XXIII! I am random, and say randomly absurd things, because I am a Discordian like you!”

The group fell silent and looked at him curiously for a moment, and then resumed arguing.

Steve was puzzled. This wasn’t the reception he’d expected. He spoke again;

“Excuse me, but do you know where the monkeys fly at midnight? Modern politics bores me, and I can swallow my own nose!!”

Now a few of the others seemed to be paying attention to him, although to his dismay they seemed less than impressed by his perfect grasp of outlandishness. Two or three of them, he noticed… why, they were making fun of him! They were whispering to each other, and looking at him, and laughing! He flushed red in anger.

“Listen, you people! I am a Discordian, and I know what Discordia is, and I came here to find Answers and Truth and Nonsense and Absurdity… what do I find you doing? Just… NOTHING! Nothing at all! Why aren’t you Saying Important Nonsense? Why, you’re just ARGUING… ARGUING like any schmucks I might find on the street! I am obviously more enlightened and Discordian than you fools. You people are all just alike. You should be different! You should PAY ATTENTION to ME, and LISTEN to ME, and I will show YOU How to Be Discordian!”

With this, he started dancing and squawking around the table like a big, Steve-shaped chicken, periodically uttering Absurdities such as “I AM THE PAULRUS” and “TOGETHER WE TURNTABLE THE GREEN OTTER!”. The people at the table attempted to carry on with their arguing, but it was getting harder and harder to hear each other over the squawking. Soon, all their arguing was about Steve, and whether they should ask him to leave. About a third of the group started shouting at Steve, telling him to get out of the café and leave them alone; another third started shouting at the first third to shut up and leave Steve alone, and the other third tried to have an interesting conversation, but it was impossible to follow with all the hubbub so they eventually fell silent.

Finally, the barista stormed over and said, “WHAT IN THE HELL IS GOING ON OVER HERE?”

One of the quieter members of the group replied, “Discord”.

We would like, at this point, to say that Steve, hearing this, was enlightened, but it doesn’t usually work that way outside of Zen koans.

#TheGame23: The Metagame: Creative Discord: The Word Game

 

The Metagame: Creative Discord: The Word Game is an invitation to engage in the ancient human art of free rambling a.k.a. “theoryposting” with the goal of not being “correct” (and thus not being afraid of being wrong) but to partake in an imaginative adventure of speculation and reflection both as an individual practice and interpersonally as a collaborative ramble with the mutual goal of facilitating the rambling and appreciating it for itself as a creative art and not for the production of some “product.” You aren’t trying to do anything except ramble as the ramble goes, as there is no goal other than the flow, so there is no competition. Absolutely nothing is at risk, so there is no need for any sort of hostility. In addition for rambling for its own sake, the larger “goal” is to encourage this rambling and its lack of rules except to play in a general sense, in the hope that it may help people to explore ideas freely and passionately. Perhaps we can even get somewhere extraordinary with this free rambling.

Media, Memes, and Metagames

by Eris Omniquery

These videos were created over a period of 4 years via an improvisational memetic engineering process. This process involved sometimes hundreds of ours of free rambles on the internet in various places, contextualizing and re-contextualizing video references until a video felt “right” and essentially made itself, self-organizing out of the discourse. They are a personal reflection of my journey through postmodern hell and out of it to the pancreativist horizon. Id’ consider them every bit as important as this document because they are a narrative expression of the same thing, comprised of segments of narratives stitched together to create memetic chimera.

Synchromystic Neoism Connections as a possible bridge to Hyper-Surrealist Meta-Discordian Post-Neoism Conspiracies

by Serena Coburn

 

Apologies beforehand for being an unfamiliar and unestablished presence here but I will try to handle these issues and “My”+”Self” as delicately as possible within this conversation and information therein.

When we attempt to Neoize Discordianism and Discordianize Neoism, we must keep some things in mind about either but also these things we cannot keep in mind beforehand because they must first be illuminated by the processes of Neoization and Discordianization. Whether you understand these things before or after the process is up to you even if it actually cannot be up to you.

One of the things we must realize is that there is nothing inherently Discordian about Neoism and there is nothing inherently Neoist about Discordianism, however the very nature of both means they are inherently Neoist AND Discordian. Another thing we must realize is that this inevitably gives way to Meta-Discordian & Post-Neoism conspiracies. <— This second thing is actually the same as the first thing I said we must realize, therefore we are still dealing with just one of the things we must realize. There are basic ‘pataphysics behind these facts, but we don’t need to realize that just yet (nor can we, if we could).

So we have already established the existence and the nature of hyper-surrealist Meta-Discordian Post-Neoism conspiracies, however now we must realize that one cannot simply jump from a world that has Discordianism and Neoism in it, to a world that has Meta-Discordian Post-Neoism in it, because doing so without the caution and the fun of the in-between could be dangerously anti-Neoist and unDiscordian.

Where does this leave us as far as this conversation about going from the Neoism + Discordianism world to the Meta-Discordianism Post-Neoist world? I’m here today to explore with you the grounds of Synchromystic Neoism Connections, because I believe (if believing is possible) that it holds the keys to get from “A to B” to A+B (and back to A to B, if necessary).

There’s a link I’d like to share for reference while or before or after you read, but before I share it and continue speaking, how about a little game to get there first?

Okay, let’s continue!

::: Synchromystic Neoism Connections :::

If there was ever such a place for both plainspeak and absurdity to share a stage for just a moment, let it be known to say that the most simple way of describing Synchromystic Neoism is the bridge from Discordianism+Neoism to Hyper-Surrealist Meta-Discordianist Post-Neoism. In Synchromystic Neoism, we find the safest and most constructive way/playground/meal to both analyze and participate in the spectrum of transformation that happens in a personality or identity when they go from not knowing about Discordianism or Neoism to knowing about Discordianism+Neoism and (eventually) being Hyper-Surrealist Meta-Discordian Post-Neoism Conspirators.

This experiment is not without its risks and uncertainties for either+both+neither Discordianism and Neoism, but the fact it has these risks is exactly what allows us to examine and access the possible anti-Neoist and unDiscordian dangers without unleashing or losing (or even gaining) any control of them. Watching and/or participating in Synchromystic Neoism Connections allows us to have the most candid and constructive possible view of what “point 1 to point 2” (or point 22 to point 23) looks like: even more simply, it lets us have the safest and tamest view of “wtf is going on” when a personality or identity that once didn’t know about Discordianism-&-Neoism begins to know about Discordianism-&-Neoism.

The non-Discordians and non-Neoists of the world are most confused and upset when they can’t trace or analyze the beginning or the details, where what they think of as a “real” personality/identity becomes a new (rebirthed/killed) or shared (Open) or is-and-isn’t-Real type of personality/identity that we see in either+both Discordianism and Neoism. They want to know the legal names, the “real-life” details, and “true” stories behind the flesh-and-mind beings of Discordianism and Neoism. This desire of non-Discordians and non-Neoists to know this information is how we end up with articles, write-ups, books, editorials, and Wikipediation that very explicitly and candidly lay out the “real-life” identities and details of “actual” people behind the origins+developments of Discordianism and Neoism.

The desire for that information may seem entirely anti-Neoist and unDiscordian, however Synchromystic Neoism Connections allow us to develop the bridge to get from here to Meta-Discordian Post-Neoism Conspiracies. Through, underneath, above, all around, and even within the armpits of Synchromystic Neoism Connections, we are able to freely document, examine, simulate, destroy, Neoize+Discordianize even the most anti-Neoist and unDiscordian things back/forward into their Meta-Discordian Post-Neoist place.

Though both movements were originally of separate times, places, people, platforms, politics, philosophies, and purposes, every Discordian and every Neoist remembers “when it happened” for them and “what it was like”, whether it was excitement, inspiration, fear, confusion, silliness, Fnordiness, Cantsiness, or whatever it was they experienced when they ‘took the dive’ into one of those rabbit holes. One of the issues (though more of an anti-issue given the natures of the movements) that both Neoists and Discordians (even if just one) may possibly have faced from time to time is how exactly do you “explain” or “share” or “transfer” or “convert” those “real-life” feelings, experiences, and details in a way that somehow works for non-Discordians and non-Neoists without doing so in a Discordian or Neoist way and without becoming (or unbecoming) non-Discordian or non-Neoist yourself (even though you just are)?

Synchromystic Neoism Connections.

This is the way/place/song where we reconcile, accept, recreate, and deconstruct the world of today in which Discordianism, Neoism, non-Discordianism, non-Neoism, unDiscordianism + anti-Neoism intersect and birth and live and share and die together through each other with each other next to each other without each other all at the same time. When we do/see/stop/be this^^^, we arrive at Meta-Discordian Post-Neoism!

Discordianism: A Weapon Against the NWO

by kroms33

:::
It is written in Greek mythology that Zeus held a banquet in celebration of the marriage of Peleus and Thetis. However, Eris the goddess of discord was uninvited. Infuriated by this act of being uninvited – and snubbed, Eris arrived at the celebration and threw a golden apple (the Apple of Discord) which was inscribed with the words “Kallisti” on to the floor. Kallisti is translated to, “for the fairest one.”

The vanity of the goddesses ensued, each goddess claiming the apple was meant for them – because of each claim unto themselves for being “the fairest one.” This ancient tale is deemed to be the beginnings of what caused the Trojan war.

The above tale is applicable to our society in so many ways, to me it speaks volumes. The majority of the world has been uninvited to celebrate it’s vast achievements, but yet these achievements stem from the fruit of our labor. We work for a system not to partake in it’s wealth, but only to be denied it’s wealth since we are forced to work harder to maintain our footing – which is slipping.

With the vanity and corruption that consumes each and every government, bank and corporation we see the result; it is a broken and used society that pits person against person, race against race, and religion against religion for the gains of material wealth of an elite few.

Order and Chaos can not achieve reality without each other (this is later dismissed for philosophical reasons, and for deprogramming). There can be no order without something that defines order (the yin and yang of Taoism). The defining structure of what order is would be it’s direct counterpart – Chaos, disharmony, darkness. “Darkness,” you might be asking?

Let me explain: (this is about to get deep).

Chaos – In Ancient Greek Cosmology (Study of the Universe), chaos is either the primeval emptiness before things came into being (before creation) or the abyss of Tartarus, the underworld. In the Theogony of Hesiod (written around 8th-7th century BCE) there was first Chaos, then Gaea (Earth, daughter of Chaos), and Eros (personification of love in all its manifestations).

Chaos also had other offspring: Erebus (Darkness) and Nyx (Night). Ovid a poet who lived around 43 BCE gave Chaos it’s modern meaning: The original formless and disordered mass from which the ordered universe is created. Early Judaism, and later the Christian faiths applied this interpretation to the creation story in Genesis. (Note: Got to love the modern scientists patting themselves on the back about the Big Bang Theory, when it was already in place in 43BCE.)

What does the explanation above have to do with Chaos, discord or order on a political ideology or belief? Everything.
Are we not the formless disordered mass that helps the Order maintain it’s universe?

Does not darkness consume us because of our status of being without harmony in our current system? In the eyes of the elite, are we not the formless mass segregated from their Order? Do we not remain formless and without movement against their minority status of which represses us? They do classify us in categories such as middle class, lower middle class, poor, third world countries, first world countries, tax payers, non-tax payers, black, white, Arab, oriental, Jew, male, female, outstanding citizens, and criminals…oh and debt, how much we owe to them, our masters. Is it not the darkness of Order within the current system that leaves the majority of people on this planet without the basic necessities to live?

According to the ancient Greeks, out of Chaos came the earth and love. How significant is it that the ancient Greeks wrote about earth and love, night and darkness being the children of Chaos? Stop and think about that, just for a few seconds or even minutes… meditate on it for a few. Connect the dots.

Wouldn’t those who maintain Order over us fall into being irrelevant by implementing a system that excludes the majority? If out of Chaos is born earth, and love should they not counter balance the night and darkness? The earth spins – balanced on its axis, giving rotation to the night and day equally distributed. Love is happiness, joy, warmth while darkness is cold, hatefulness and evil. Are we balanced? What is right and wrong and how is it used to conclude being evil or hateful?

Tell me this, is it not wrong for a corporation funded by a bank to enter an agreement with a country for their citizens to work for a wage they can not survive on while being exposed to chemicals?

Furthermore, as our world spins from light into night the billions of starving people on our earth shudder in the darkness of being left behind. Is this their fault? Are they the ones that are in control of the banks, governments and corporations? Are you and I the ones that control these entities? For the most part – No.

No longer can we look at societies as race, because we are judged by our ‘class.’ We are judged by governments who are propped up by corporations, organizations and banks – elitists. Our enemies are few, but we are many.

Enter Discordia

The five fingered hand of Eris once again releases the Golden Apple upon the soil of mankind. The gods of man worship their vanity atop a pyramid of injustice and secrecy. The ‘All Seeing Eye’ atop their pyramid focuses its gaze. It knows the apple is upon the land.

Take a bite of the Apple of Discord…
Chaos is all that there is, order and disorder are only illusions imposed on chaos. Of Chaos is born earth, and love – night and darkness.

Wait. Think. Process.

Principia Discordia:

Eris: I have come to tell you that you are free. Many ages ago, My consciousness left man, that he might develop himself. I return to find this development approaching completion, but hindered by fear and by misunderstanding. You have built for yourselves psychic suits of armor, and clad in them, your vision is restricted, your movements are clumsy and painful, your skin is bruised, and your spirit is broiled in the sun.

I am chaos. I am the substance from which your artists and scientists build rhythms. I am the spirit with which your children and clowns laugh in happy anarchy. I am chaos. I am alive, and I tell you that you are free.

Elitists present the illusion that they control us (order), and we obey their projections. How can billions of people subsequently relinquish our rights (disorder) to those that are supposedly more ‘powerful’ than us? What is their power measured in? Strength? No… what gives them strength? Yes, that is it… Money. Isn’t money just an illusion created from an EARTH resource? Does their illusion tell you to LOVE your fellow man and woman, or to usurp emotional ties and ‘rise’ up their ladder(s) of power?

Discordians are people without secret societies to honor, they are the child dying in the sands of a far off war and the worker who is oppressed by a power hungry corporation, they are peoples of a country that are starving to death because of worldly greed. A Discordian is that homeless man on the street begging to live, a woman with child unable to afford health care, the man or woman who just lost his\her job because of cutbacks, your neighbors who just lost their house. You.

 

Principia Discordia Excerpt:

Conversations With Eris: (Malaclypse the Younger… out of the Principia Discordia).

“I am filled with fear and tormented with terrible visions of pain.
Everywhere people are hurting one another, the planet is rampant with injustices, whole societies plunder groups of their own people, mothers imprison sons, children perish while brothers war. O, woe.”

WHAT IS THE MATTER WITH THAT, IF IT IS WHAT YOU WANT TO DO?

“But nobody wants it! Everybody hates it!”

OH. WELL, THEN STOP.

.

Stop? What about my house payment? My car? Food? Money?
STOP.

When I raise my fist to the air and shout, “HAIL ERIS, ALL HAIL DISCORDIA!” I am not giving my reverence to a goddess – but rather to my fellow brothers and sisters who are suffering under an illusion of false rule.

“With our concept-making apparatus called “the brain” we look at reality through the ideas-about-reality which our cultures give us. The ideas-about-reality are mistakenly labeled ‘reality’ and unenlightened people are forever perplexed by the fact that other people, especially other cultures, see ‘reality’ differently.” – Malaclypse the Younger

Racism – illusion, created by the Elite: control is easily enforced on a population split on issues.

Politics – illusion, created by the Elite: control is easily enforced on a population split on issues.

Religion – Again, read Malaclypse the Younger’s words above. It can have the same influence as Racism and Politics, but yet – I will not diminish anyone’s belief system because I respect everyone’s beliefs in their deity or non-deity. His words do not dismiss religion into the spectrum of illusion, but rather supports their reality because of them being beyond reality (make sense?). Religion is either true, or not true.

War – illusion, created by the Elite: Hey, they need to have some fun every once in a while right? Yeah, that and they need to make money, you know – that illusion created from an earthly resource. Think about this in the case for war: Poor people from one country go fight the poor from another country all because of some illusion to a resource.

Money – Illusion, created by the Elite: Some special people have lots of it, most of us don’t… it’s based off of a sparkly yellow rock… what more evidence does anyone need? Wait… I thought we were special too? Hmmm. Anyone seeing the picture yet?

Isn’t it time we deprogrammed ourselves from the Elitists illusion? How do we do that you may ask? Do we get guns and bombs and destroy their buildings and lives? Absolutely not.

Remember, “Chaos is all that there is, order and disorder are only illusions imposed on chaos.”?

Wouldn’t remaining out of both order and disorder by remaining outside of the illusion work? Look, there it is… eat that apple. What I am saying is of course – stay out of the civil unrest, don’t be violent – stay inside with your families, help your fellow man and not the illusionist system… rebuild earth out of love and watch the powers that be wash away with their last gasps for air.

If you feed their system, they have fuel – if you don’t they will sputter out and become a memory of the past. Eventually they will fade from history.

The revolution has begun, and that too is an illusion – be wary my friends, heed my words. The politicians here in the USA who called for other governments to allow their people peaceful protests and to hold the might of their military at bay will not do so in their own country.

Imagine a peaceful protest in Washington DC, or any other major US city, or even to our brothers and sisters in other countries abroad. A crowd gathers, chanting anti government slogans, wanting change. Suddenly an explosion occurs and a line of police men suddenly disappear, being vaporized into grotesque carnage. You see where this is going? You see the illusions they can create? These peaceful protesters are now enemy combatants – terrorists. The “All Seeing Eye” has victory in sight (pun!!).

The only way to win against these illusionist masters is to circumvent their system, peacefully.

Here is a quote from the Illuminatus! Trilogy:
« Communication is possible only between equals. The master class never abstracts enough information from the servile class to know what is actually going on in the world where the actual productivity of society occurs. Furthermore, the logogram of any authoritarian society remains fairly inflexible as time passes, but everything else in the universe constantly changes. The result can only be progressive disorientation among the rulers. The end is debacle. »

We need to be on the same page, the same wavelength to subvert the evils that haunt our existence.
The Illuminati allusion eludes illusionist delusions. Does the Illuminati exist? Only in the allusion of the Elite.
Humanity, are we not the “fairest ones?” We slave day in and day out to make something out of our lives that we will never attain. They – your masters will not allow it. The apple of discord is meant for us, for the meek shall inherit the earth… not the elite. The universe constantly changes, but yet humanity remains stagnant within it’s illusions. Sad, really.

Direct From google.com: (how funny)
[meek/mēk/Adjective: Quiet, gentle, and easily imposed on; submissive: “the meek compliance of our politicians”.

If anyone has ever wondered what a Fnord looked like in the wild – it is right there, look. Google ‘meek’ – see for yourselves… right at the top of the search.
Love thy neighbor, those without sin cast the first stone, Conquer the angry man by love, Love is the most direct and safest way to human perfection….

Let your love flow outward through the universe,
To its height, its depth, its broad extent,
A limitless love, without hatred or enmity.

…there was first Chaos, then Gaea (Earth, daughter of Chaos), and Eros (personification of love in all its manifestations).
Isn’t it time we got back to the basics so that we may progress as a species? All of the major earthly religious books proclaim love is the answer – do they not? So why live under the an artificial or deceptive front supplied by the elite who go against everything there is to do about loving your fellow man, woman, child?

If we can not give our children, or perhaps their children a better world then what we inherited, what good are we?

Awaken.
Peace.
