This is (as much of) the first edition of that seminal counter-culture classic "Principia Discordia" by Malaclypse the Younger (as could be found).

The Office of High Priesthood a. The Erisian Orthodoxy b. The Compilers of Truth--Esoteric a. The Epistolary b.

The Episkoposes B. Disciples of Eris Evangelists, etc. Legionnaires also sub-divided as: 1. The Erisian Orthodox 2.

Any member of The House is called an Episkopos which is a real honest-to-goodness Greek word that means "overseer", and from which we derive good words like "epistle" and bad words like "Episcopalian". Now this is not to say that an Episkopos cannot be something else in The House also--he can, if that something just happens to be a High Priest or a Compiler of Truth--Esoteric.

In fact, it is quite likely that he will be a Compiler of Truth--Esoteric; because that is probably how he became an Episkopos in the first place but more on that later. The fact that the sub-divisions of The House are numbered should not lead one to believe that it is a hierarchy because that is not the case; with the grand exception of The Golden Apple Corps, which is in the attic. No Episkopos has any authority over any other Episkopos, with same exception as mentioned all are Eristocrats.

But then some Episkoposes do hold a higher place, but not because he is an Episkopos but because he is a something else too, and if that something else is the head of something.

For instance, a High Priest is the head of all those that follow his sect--be they Legionnaires or Episkoposes--but he has no authority over just any old body. Perhaps this will become clearer as we go along note 4. It holds a position somewhat similar to the pardon the reference Papacy in the heathen Christianity of the Catholic variety.

Now, don't get angry, it is not as bad as all that. First, remember that an Episkopos is pretty much his own boss; he was ascended into The House because The Holders of The Sacred Chao felt that they could trust his discretion.

Hence, the only time that The Golden Apple Corps would ever exert it's supreme authority would be in case of disputes or in cases where a final authority is necessary.

Principia Discordia

Secondly, the fact that the Corps is closed too to new members I guess I forgot to mention that , does not in any way belittle other Episkoposes note 5. The Corps is for The Founders of Discordianism--and just because you didn't happen to think of the idea first, it doesn't necessarily imply that you are not as good a Discordian as The Holders of the Chao--even though it is probably true. And thirdly, the two founders are going to leave this corporeal world someday, and will have to be replaced anyway.

They, and only they, may put "H. It seems that Malaclypse The Younger --while under inspiration-realized that the Greeks did not understand the Principle of Discord very well at all; and that Eris should not be taken quite as literally as had been done. And for about five days, Malaclypse The Younger went through a period of Rebellion, and was heard making such comments as "Down with Eris" and "Screw God" and other terrible things which made Lord Omar very angry.

Passing through his rebellious phase, Malaclypse The Younger asked Lord Omar just what they should do; for Lord Omar's inspirations told him that Eris was to be taken literaly--or nearly so, anyway.

Well, they went into conference at the Bowling Alley where Eris first presented Herself to them, and together they talked things over with Eris.

After much lengthly contemplation, discussion, meditation, and consideration they concluded that it is perfectly within the Discordian Philosophy to have Sex I mean Sects.

And each appointed the other as L High Priest of his particular interpretation. Any member of this sect should never, never take Her name in vain, or so much as suggest that another God or Goddess comes anywhere near Her.

He feels that She is not a real live Goddess but if there was one, it would be She. Being a Symbolic Manifestation of The Principle which is what he calls Her , She does not, he argues, always represent the appropriate specific. Bokonon" or "Hail Me" or something, if he feels that Eris is not the appropriate symbol afn under the circumstances at the moment. The liberal interpreters may take Her name in vain on occassion; but do so sparingly, with kindness, and not in the presence of an Orthodox Erisian note 7.

At the time that this is being written, these are the only two sects and the only two High Priests. However, there is one way to become a High Priest yourself--but that is a secret, and never let out of the Office. The reason that it is secret is this: The High Priests feel that being a High Priest and having followers is quite a responsibility, and should not be available to just any one.

So, if a person understands Discordianism to the degree in which it is apparent to him, without being told, how he can become a High Priest if he wants to , then he understands it well enough to qualify.

So don't ask a High Priest how he became one, because he cannot tell you.

Incidentally, this is the only secret that is to be found in the Erisian Mysteries--the reason that we are "esoteric" is because nobody ever heard of us. The difference is that when an Episkopos compiles truth it is done in specific regard to the Erisian Movement; which of course, cannot be done by a layman who knows nothing about Discordianism though he may intuitively understand much of Discordian Wisdom--which is why it is "truth" that he compiled and not just any other old thing.

This is an academic distinction and gives one no authority or anything. If an Episkopos wishes, he may call himself "Compiler of Truth--Esoteric" if he has compiled truth, that is , but usually this is not done. The Epistolary is properly a part of the Erisian Archives, but each Epistle itself is a compiled truth--so it is properly part of this section too.

More on the Epistolary when we get to The Administry. Holy Works are the best examples of compiled truths. A Holy Work is a work done on, about, or in the name of Eris, and Discordianism.

Most of the Episkoposes will have done some sort of a Holy Work by the time that they enter The House. You will find it very enlightening if you can find it at all. Saints: At the time that this is being written, there are three Saints, St. Bokonon sainted for his profound understanding of the function of religion , St. Quixote sainted for his divinly inspired approach to life, and St. Yossarrian sainted as an example of what an Authentic Man is like.

It is interesting to note that our Saints are fictional, not factual--but that is all right St. Bokonon demonstrates that it certainly is all right. As more Saints come into being, all Discordians will be notified. Like Personages: just thought we would throw this in. If a Legionnaire wishes ascendance into The House, he must first prove that he has a profound understanding of Discordianism.

The only thing that he cannot do, is override The Golden Apple Corps. So, present yourself for examination before The Golden Apple Corps; and if it feels that your Erisian Judgement can be trusted almostunconditionally, then you will be ascended.

The easiest way to present yourself for examination, is to write a Holy Work, such that you feel it demonstrates your ability to be an Episkopos, and present it to The Corps--actually, this way is preferred, we like Holy Works. Ascendance into The House can be authorized only by The Corps.

Like your Sacred Name, your Sacred Title is a very personal and individual thing and should be chosen with care. Furthermore, he can also head departments of the Administry and title himself appropriatly; and he can officially usher in new Legionnaire Converts; and ascend Legionnaires to Disciplehood; and everything.

It is the responsibility of The House end is headed by Episkoposes. It has five sub-divisions, each head of which is called "The Keeper of Each sub-division may have sub-sub-divisions, and they can have their sub-sub-sub-divisions, ad infinitum. Just keep track of what you are doing, and enjoy yourself. The Epistolary is a goodie that is composed of copies of all the Inspired Letters that have passed between the Holders of The Sacred Chao or, if you like, passed between the Chao's legs.

Needless to say, these documents will some day be Erisian Relics and should bring a good price. Remember, two copies carbon OK. He then has the master duplicated offset, Xerox, or something and presents it to whoever is going to get it. Due to the expense envolved in this operation, this is one of the main areas in which The Treasury is emptied. If you have any questions about the use of certificates, or what symbol is appropriate to what, or anything at all pertaining to this, just ask this Keeper and if he doesn't have an answer ready he has the authority to make up an answer to fit the problem.

All the symbols and things so far, were originally designed by him. So here is ours: It is composed of three sets of Numbers, each separated by a dash. The first represents the Movement appropriate to the document; the second to the sub-division s ; and the third is the date.

Example: would mean that it is Erisian, that it pertains to The Legion of Dynamic Discord, and that it was documented on April 11th, l What to do with sub-sub divisions.

100 Ways to Motivate Yourself: Change Your Life Forever

In the above example, there would be no way to differentiate between a Legionnaire's document and a Disciple's document; so a Disciple's document would be two point one 2. To find the appropriate numbers for the catagories, check your Table of Disorganizationwhich should have everything numbered for you Official Discordian Document About dates: Any given thing is liable to be revised without notice at any given time; so, if you have conflicting information, check to see which is the latest--and follow it.

Anything that is duplicated from this office will have an Official Document Number with the date. The reason that the date has colons and not slashes between the numbers is to make it not look like a date, which we thought would be nice. One of them is The University of Discordian, which is still in the planning stage. When completed though, it will have a whole catalog full of courses with no place to teach them and will offer a Widower of Arts degree to all Discordians interested.

Another Project is Switzerland--it seems that Lord Omar has discovered that there is a secret plot to overthrow Switzerland in which 11 small countries of Europe will confiscate the gold in the Swiss banks. Being a good natured fellow at heart, Lord Omar has offered The Discordian Society Treasury for the purpose of Switzerland to hide their gold in for safe keeping. The consulate has not yet answered our offer, and our information about The Plot , but we are sure that they will take us up on it.

And we have a Project for getting new members.

And we plan to keep accumulating Projects as we go along. You need not be an Episkopos to help on or have your own Project--anyone interested may participate in fact, participation in a Project is one way for a Legionnaire to be ascended to a Disciple.

Actually there are five movements, but two of them are remaining hidden and we cannot find them.

It seems that Discordeaux frequently succombed to spells wherein he could only speak a Divine Tongue of some sort that no one could understand but himself.

We are sorry that we have no translation of this most apt comment. Whatever the hell that is. Greetings, Grace. I hereby grant you full authorization to shoot any Alpine Trouple and ask you to fully inform yourself at once about all details of the Swiss Crisis. As you doubtless know, not long ago I discovered that the sinister Defamation League was plotting to get eleven small nations together and rob all the banks in Switzerland, commando-stlye. I do not know much about the sinister leader of this Plot To Knock Off Switzerland, except that his followers call him the Anonymous One and that one of the small nations involved is the Soveriegn Military Order of Malta and that another might be Luxembourge or, perhaps, Manaco.

My many duties as Bull Goose of this disorganization have kept me from finding out more. Our objective is to get the Swiss to be cognizant of the peril and entrust us with their gold until the Plot is foiled by our Knights Of The Five-Sided Temple or somebody.

If we could convince them of our trustworthyness by getting hold of an ICBM? That is one idea. Hill No. In answer to many 5 requests for a service of this kind, The Discordian Society will begin to offer a selected seris of the finest postcard-sized illustrations in full color which belong to the Discrodamic School Of Art -- A Division Of The University Of Discordia -- and which will be available from The Office Of The Bull Goose at the special price of ten cents each.

These illustrative works of happenstance are not "Discordian" or "ideological" in the ordinary sense of the term. They are, however, Discrodamic and idiotic. They represent the combined efforts of an unbeffudled postcard printer and a brainless printing press; this they are works of pure intuition and blind luck, qualified as the best and pure manifestation of The Mystical Orgasm Of Eris -- impossible for the conscious Discordian to create.

None of these are reproductions: they are all actual mistakes in their original form with nothing added to adulterate their simple ugliness. Discrodamic: A term compounded from the following words: discord; Cro-Magnon; goddamned; and dynamic. The Gallery will issue bulletins, from time to time, listing the titles of all available originals and how many of each title are available. They will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis.

Substitutions will be made for late orders. The Official Discordian Post Card Company, formerly at this address, hereby announces its bankruptcy.

This is esoteric because people think you said, "Hail Eros! And our US branch office is Box , Pentagon, etc.

SUBJECT: A more or less run-down of the DS, and a make-shift explaination of the enclosed TD To be a member of the Discordian Society, one must exhibit that he she or it is one of the following: a a person of profound enlightenment or interest in Discordianism as a philosophical - religious approach to life, b a person who is a manifestation of or lives in terms of The Principle of Discord "Eristic Principle" , or c a person who is a manifestation of or lives in terms of The Principle of Superficial Order Lying on a Solid Foundation of Chaos "Eristesque Principle".

Any person who fits the definition of a Discordian, is a Discordian and belongs to The Society whether he likes it or not, and whether he knows it or not--there is some sort of classification he will fall into regardless.

Of the active, The Legion of Dynamic Discord represents the bulk of the religious fold, and is under the authority of the Eristocracy The House of the Apostles of Eris. A person becomes an Enlightened Discordian by joining the Legion as a Legionnaire, and at that point has the authority to call himself an Erisian Discordian, adopt a Sacred Name, and go about spreading Words of Wisdom as they are released from the Compilers of Truth--Esoteric.

Once a Legionnaire, the fundamental step has been taken and you are in favor with Our Lady of Discord. A regular Legionnaire is not responsible to a Disciple, but Disciplehood is certainly of higher status.


An Episkopos has authority over The Legion but not over other Episkoposes-[unless] he is a High Priest, in which case he has authority over his [follow]ers be they Legionnaire, Disciple, or Episkopos in all matters pertaining to his sect.

The Golden Apple Corps Keepers of The Sacred Chao has absolute authority over everything but in [general] will not overrule an Episkopos; for an Episkopos becomes an [Epis]kopos because The Corps has faith in his discretion.

Any member of The House is an Episkopos; but an [Episkopos] may also be a Keeper Of The Sacred Chao if he happens to be [one of] the two founders of the DS , a High Priest if he happens to [have] the sufficient understanding of the Erisian Mysteries to be [able to] guess, on his own, how he may become a High Priest--which is the only secret to be found in the DS , or a Compiler of Truth--[Esoteric] if he compiles truths.

So far, there are three Saints: St. Bokonon, St. Yossarian and St. We expect to add more as we go along.

Never Split the Difference: Negotiating As If Your Life Depended On It

We have no Like Personages as yet in fact, we don't even know what one might be. We expect to accumulate Projects as we prosper. A Keeper in The Administry is called a "Keeper" and he keeps whatever it is that needs keeping. Avatars whole hearted Avatars, that is are very few and very precious. A Compiler of Truth--Lay is like an Esoteric Compiler except that he has never heard of Discordianism and compiles thruth intuitively.

If [these] brilliant men were to know of Discordianism, it is likely they they would become Erisians in fact, Heller and Vonnegut are going to be contacted very soon. Concerning the Orders of Eris: The Knights are the Bureaucrats and Militarists of [the] world; Ichabod College is for those who have been exposed to the Discordian Society but don't understand it all of whom [flunk out ;] The Defamation League--Underground is for the rabblerousers, anarchists, bomb-throwers, assassins and such; Local is [for] Doom Prophets in general there has been no Doom Propher since Malaclypse The Elder who has known what he was doing ; and [The] Bowel Movement is for Discordians that want OUT.

In general, Eristewquians think that they are anti-discord and that they are promoting Order--but we know better, and quietly draft them into the Society. In "order" to clear this up, and make way for fresh chaos which is how we rationalize this sort of operation , I should like to now timidly propose some 5 basic guidelines-in-the-public-interest for the general welfare of Our Society: 1 That The Keepers or, if you prefer: Holders of The Chao, and only they, be permitted to issue TD's and DT's.

If nix Quietly draft him into Ichabod College where he may flunk to his heart's'stupid content. Today, that search is ending. It used to be the function of religion to provide explainations for the order of things which science discovered but was unable to explain. Today, that function is vestigal.

Science is unable to explain, for example, why today's world goes right on ignoring science--paying more tribute to superstition, totalitariansim, and war. Why are the secrets of the atom used to promote chaos among men? Why are the most generous motives of men played upon to produce slavery? Why do otherwise sane people attend church on Sunday?

The purpose of The Discordian Society is to provide false, comforting answers to questions of this sort; to give mystical reasons for the disorder around us; to promote unworkable principles of discord--in short, to provide the world with a workshop for the insane, thus keeping them out of mischief as Presidents, Ambassador[s], Priests, Ministers, and other Dictators. For hundreds of years this boulder was there, rocking and swaying, but always keeping its balance just perfectly.

But one year, there happened to be a sever windstorm; severe enough it was, to topple the boulder from its majectic height and dash it to the bottom cf the cliff, far far below. Needless to say, the boulder was smashed into many pieces. Where it hit, the ground was covered with a carpet of pebbles--some small and some large--but pebbles and pebbles and more pebbles for as far as you could walk in an hour. One day, after all this, a young man by the name of Ichabod happened on the area.

Being a fellow of keen mind and observational powers, naturally he was quite astounded to see so many stones scattered so closely on the ground. Now, Ichabod was very much interested in the nature of things, and he spent the whole afternoon looking at pebbles, and measuring the size of pebbles, and feeling the weight of pebbles, and just pondering about pebbles in general.

He spent the night there, not wanting to lose this miraculous find, and awoke the next morning full of enthusiasm. He spent many days on his carpet of stones. Eventually he noticed a very strange thing. There were three rather large stones on the carpet and they formed a triangle-almost but not quite equilateral. He was amazed. Looking further he found four very white stones that were arranged in a lopsided square.

Additionally, the "contents of this edition" note in the Loompanics edition identifies the fourth edition as having originally been published by Rip Off Press of San Francisco, California. Western philosophy is traditionally concerned with contrasting one grid with another grid, and amending grids in hopes of finding a perfect one that will account for all reality and will, hence, say unenlightened westerners be true.

My many duties as Bull Goose of this disorganization have kept me from finding out more. Ascendance into The House can be authorized only by The Corps. Perhaps this will become clearer as we go along note 4.

The Pentagon and The Apple of Discord were chosen to represent these principles for the following reason: We have found that one of the finest examples of Superficial Order resting on a solid foundation of Chaos is the United States Military Headquarters, The Pentagon Bldg.
