    Schwa must fit in there somewhere…

  2. Gareth Branwyn says:

    Good point. And “technically,” that should be Catmas, not Dogmas.

    You forgot the “http://” in the link to her site.

  4. Mordicai says:

    Eris is the only plausible Chaotic Good deity, & weirdly enough, she’s actually Chaotic Neutral.

  5. Remy Porter says:

    It’s incomplete, which is the most Discordian version of complete. But a the big thing:
    Under “Related Religions” there should be a listing for “All of them”.

    Somewhere, Aleister Crowley is smiling while he kicks L. Ron in the head.  That would make a strange t-shirt. Since this week has been very heavy on RAW, I have to say that I have appreciated his work very much. The fact is that the Illuminatus Trilogy has a lot in common with Through the Looking Glass, the Matrix, and Phillip K. Dick.  Once you gain certain knowledge, life will never be the same.

    No Cacophony Society? 

  8. Hugh Stimson says:

    I wonder where Anonymous fits in.

    • Ender Wiggin says:

      I’ve made the comparison pretty often myself recently, in that Anon and 4chan operate precisely as good cabals should. The hive mind itself is a pure manifestation of primal chaos. And it is Glorious. Hail Eris.

      • Andrew Singleton says:

        Query. Is slenderman based off Greyface or no?

        • To be honest… I’ll admit being a young Discordian that filled 4chan and Anonops with Discordian Catma to provide examples of Dada activism. A drop in the bucket, but I can guarantee I’ve pointed out some Fnords to Legion… It fits in Anonymously. ;)

  9. Mujokan says:

    Any comment I make about all this will be very “greyface” and be beside the point. But I will at least say that the “mu” exchange is deeper than it’s presented here. That’s a kind of pop American conception that came from Pirsig. But it doesn’t really matter.

  10. Trevor says:

    Kerry wrote three books on his time with Oswald and his role in the Kennedy assassination.  One was the novel ‘The Idle Warriors,’ as mentioned above.  One was a non-fiction book simply titled ‘Oswald,’ a paperback from New Classics House in 1965.  The third was ‘The Dreadlock Recollections,’ which is a free download here.  ‘Dreadlock’ is both the confession of a mind-controlled Manchurian Candidate and a satire of conspiracy theory at one and the same time.  A contradiction, just like Kerry was.

    I was a friend of Kerry for many years.  As with RAW and many others, eventually the voices in Kerry’s head disallowed him to keep up our friendship.  But while it lasted he was a good friend and a good influence.

  11. Ender Wiggin says:

    hmm, no mention of Chaos magic, Cuthulhu, or A O Spare…..nope. B- at best.

  12. Mister44 says:

    Mentioned this before – they while I have not read the books etc, I used to play the game based on the books. It was really fun: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Illuminati_%28game%29

    “Boy howdy that fnord was hard to spot! You guys musta’ gone to college or somethin’!” 

  14. pigpen23 says:

    oh snap, looks like malaclypse2 died in the year 200 gregorian

  15. hypersomniac says:

    Dobbshead Revisted

  16. Luca Tulving says:

    Umberto Eco, and not Umberto “Ecco”. :-)

    This mindmap is planned for a A4 double page, for a magazine I’m working on with some friends, called Le Hubl0t, so I had to prune a lot in order to fit in. But I will try to make an internet version which can be updated (maybe for coworking?) and be more complete. 
    Anyway, thanks a lot for your interest, that’s the way I’m paid for this work :)

    • You did great at covering as broadly as possible. It’s great that people all have an opinion on their related hot topics, but I think this is a great quick start for people who have never heard of Discordianism, so I’m sending this around to my family so they can get a hint that just because I live a joke doesn’t mean I’m not serious. 

      I saw it mentioned somewhere else, but it says “200″ for Gregory Hill’s death. May as well be redundant than not mention. Thanks!

  18. “”Kerry Thornley was stationed in Japan with Lee Harvey Oswald at one of only two US bases where LSD experiments took place.””

    Yeah, nothing to see here folks……move along now, move along.

  19. Klaus Æ. Mogensen says:

    “Malaclypse the Younger, aka Gregory Hill (1941 – 200)”
    Like Merlin, Malaclypse lived his life backwards in time, being born in 1941 and finally dying in 200. Any sightings of him since 1941 are results of his time-traveling activities or possibly drug use by the purported sighters.

    I was going to point out some of the document’s numerous typos, but then I recognized the Code.

    Hail Eris!
