Sometimes in #scheme or texts about scheme one may find a short little diddy about eris, or the word FNORD. If one hasn't seen this then one should still read this text for the intellectual value it has.

Principia-Discordia (Online) You can order it through your favorite bookstores as well.


This was on the fifth night, and when they slept that night each had a vivid dream of a splendid woman whose eyes were as soft as feather and as deep as eternity itself, and whose body was the spectacular dance of atoms and universes. Pyrotechnics of pure energy formed her flowing hair, and rainbows manifested and dissolved as she spoke in a warm and gentle voice:

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.

An Discord To Eris By r2q2 (Note this isn't in the principia discordia. It is merely the feelings of one of it's followers.)

She always knew where her towel was
For has ridden with hell's angel's
And sung better than any choir
And her answer to all is written in the texts
But she has saved me
Giving me meaning where there was nothing

I have seen her in the times of light
Or in my darkess hour
Telling me how to pull through
She had the smell of fairy dust
But I could never comprehend her nature
For she is like the unknown aleph
Her infinite nature that is undecidable

When I looked into her eyes of amber
There was a coolness unseen
And then I grasped her nature
Like the grace she has
When you see her afar
You could hear her sing her sweet song
As she strolled on by not even looking at me

Her dress was provocative at best
At worst it left nothing to the imagination
All golden like the apple she had
Inscribed with KALLISTI
But you could see the dagger she hid

(eris's responce
I am within you and without you
If you try to oppose me you will lose
You cannot fight the disorder I am
For in any closed system I exist
But if you follow my lead
If you are my subject and use me
I can make your dreams into destiny
For I will be your imaginations limits
And the only thing that is keeping you
Is the psychic armor that you own
Throw that away and awaken your vorpal blade)

And then my armor waned
When the world started to become surreal
And I ceased to be and became a knight
Without armor but protected by only
The faith in chaos


This book has given my life new FNORD!
