The Discordian or Erisian movement is described as a 'Non- Prophet Irreligious Disorganization' and has claimed "the Erisian revelation is not a complicated put-on disguised as a new religion, but a new religion disguised as a complicated put-on. " It all started with the 'Principia Discordia, or How I Found the Goddess and What I Did to Her When I Found Her', a collection of articles and ideas compiled by Greg Hill (Malaclypse the Young-er). The central theme is 'Chaos is every bit as important as Order' as illustrated in the story of The curse of Greyface: Humor is central to Discordianism, but Discordianism should not be dismissed as a joke. Profound experiences frequently accompany the practice or Erisinaism. It is a perceptual game, one which demonstrates that the absurd is just as valid as the mundane and chaos is just as valid as order. It frees the practitioner from the order games (that most have forgotten are games) to play games with order or games with chaos, or both. The effects of Discordianism upon an individual can be far- reaching and amazingly liberating. Although a great many immature individuals have played at Discordianism and thereby sidestepped any chance of spiritual growth whatsoever. "If religion is the opiate of the masses, then Discordianism is the alcohol, caffeine, and something-or-other of the lunatic fringe."

Your right to swing your arm ends at my nose.
You can think whatever you want just don't try to force it on me.
You can say anything you want just don't try to force me to believe it
You can do anything you want just don't do it to me without my consent or try to force me to do it.

And of course this applies to everyone else.
Do unto others as you would have others do unto you
Unless you're a sadomasochist! And then only with consent

free will

Every nanosecond of every day we individually choose to continue to exist.
Every nanosecond of every day we collectively create and maintain the universe we inhabit so we can have a place to exist in.
that's free will!
"Who is the master that makes the grass green?"
"Who is more trustworthy than all the Buddhas and sages?"

it's always something

to the sun above the clouds.

Sun that givest all things birth,
shine on everything on earth!
If that's too much to demand,
shine at least on this our land.
If even that's too much for thee,
shine at any rate on me.

God like?

“The Bible tells us to be like God, and then on page after page it describes God as a mass murderer. This may be the single most important key to the political behavior of Western Civilization.” RAW
A Buddhist monk walks up to a hot dog vendor and says
"Make me one with everything" and hands him a $20 bill.
After receiving the slavered bun, the monk stands there a long time waiting and finally the vendor says
"Change must come from within!"

IMVU and Yahoo answers

Been having a good time on IMVU lately make two avatars and telling people about furry fandom.
Having a real wild time on Yahoo answers spreading Erisian philosophy
Believe nothing just because a so-called wise person said it.
Believe nothing just because a belief is generally held.
Believe nothing just because it is said in ancient books.
Believe nothing just because it is said to be of divine origin.
Believe nothing just because someone else believes it.
Believe only what you yourself test and judge to be true
DON'T Immanentize the eschaton.

Anthrocon 2006

Got back from AC2006 yesterday. It was lots of fun and I got to meet Xianjaguar and Ironbadger for the first time and see all my other comrades in furry. The writers track was kinda sparse but very enlightening and enjoyable. The dealers, art show and artists alley was too far into the convention center and an exhausting trek. So much so I manfully resisted bidding on anything in both the adult and regular shows and managed to do my shopping in one visit. If things are closer together next year I'll be much happier.
