All Hail Discordia

June 7, 2005

Chaos is beneath everything, like the little kid under the floorboards in The Changeling . . . just sitting there, quietly observing you.

The simple fact “is”, you are an agent of Mummu, whether you like it or not. Everything you do, every single day, in some small way, adds to the mania that is our chaotic multiverse . . . You can either add to the disorder, which escalates chaos, or you can attempt to add to the notion of order, which also escalates chaos. You are screwed if you do, and you are screwed if you don’t. You’re even screwed for just thinking about it.

Chaos is all around you. Fighting it will not help.

There is an old Taoist story about a man who was observed to fall into what was known as a man killing waterfall. He plunged in, was missing for a few seconds, and eventually made his way to the surface, and swam ashore. The people watching him were stunned. They asked him how he managed to survive.

“Quite simple,” he answered. “I didn’t try to struggle against the water’s superior force. I went with the current and knew that it would eventually show me the way”

It’s the same with chaos. Go with the flow, my brothers and sisters.

It is for this reason, I believe, that we Discordians follow “Hail Eris” with “ALL Hail Discordia”

Hail Eris. ALL Hail Discordia!
