From discord, find harmony.
Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.
The Discordian Society
The Erisian Movement
The Discordian Society has no definition.
It is sometimes thought of as a disorganization of Eris Freaks. It has been called a guerrilla mind theatre. Episkopos Randomfactor, Director of Purges of Our People's Underworld Movement sect in Larchmont, prefers "The World's Greatest Association of What-ever-it-is-that-we-are."Lady Mal thinks of it as a RENAISSANCE THINK TANK. Fang the Unwashed, WKC, won't say. You can think of it any way you like.
We are a tribe of philosophers, theologians, magicians, scientists, artists, clowns, and similar maniacs who are intrigued with ERIS GODDESS OF CONFUSION and with Her Doings.
This is the study of Chaos. It's an idea, much like any others. Far greater people than I have written much more about it. There is a simple message, and that message is chaos plays an equally important part as order, as symbolized by the Sacred Chao.
The two best sources of information about the Discordian Society, in my opinion, are the Principia Discordia, as revealed to Malaclypse the Younger, and The Illuminatus Trilogy, by Robert Anton Wilson and Robert Shae.
