A conspiracy thread: Brave New World Order
Because I’m posting this on Halloween, I thought I‘d try to stick to the theme of trickery. However, I’m not going to be talking about deceptive demons or satanic rituals. It gets old. I think the subject I have in mind is much better than that. So let’s just jump right into it.
The Discordian Society is a group who worships Eris, the goddess of disorder. It was founded in the 1960s after two men, Greg Hill and Kerry Thornley, wrote a book outlining their principles. Discordianism has been called a parody religion, however, others claim it is legitimate.
According to Discordians, order and disorder are man made concepts. They are artificial divisions of pure chaos. Chaos is beyond our comprehension, but the mind still tries to conceptualize it. In short, your view of reality isn’t what reality actually is. It’s just your view.
Some say Discordianism is dangerous because it can lead one to believe that nothing is sacred, however, it can also be said that their mockery of the status quo has a sacred purpose, to cultivate divine irreverence. In other words, to not take life so seriously.
While that all sounds fine and dandy, some of the famous figures in the Discordian Society have connections to the CIA, government mind control programs, and even the assassination of JFK.
The Discordian Society, which actually encourages its members to form secret societies within itself, went on to birth the Church of the SubGenius, which went on to birth the Cacophony Society.
The Cacophony Society is a network a randomly gathered free spirits united in the pursuit of experiences beyond the pale of mainstream society. The society was actually the inspiration behind Project Mayhem in Fight Club, which was written by one of its members, Chuck Palahniuk.
Influenced by philosophies like Ontological Anarchism, movies like The Stalker, and movements like the Situationist and Dada movements, the Cacophony Society created the concept of Zone Trips.
A Zone is basically a place where anything can happen and the laws of physics don’t apply. The Cacophony Society’s Zone Trip #4 was actually the site of the first Burning Man event, which I’d say, could definitely be compared to a place outside of reality.
Another practice closely associated with Discordianism is Chaos Magick. It was developed in the 1970s using the philosophies of artist and occultist Austin Spare. Like Discordianism, Chaos Magick denies the knowability of objective truth. It rejects all fixed models of reality.
Chaos magicians are encouraged to believe whatever they want whenever they want, as long as it helps them achieve their desired end. They treat belief like a tool. Rituals, which are unique to the individual, only serve to enhance their belief through symbolic actions.
Chaos Magick has been gaining a lot popularity online lately and many of these magicians have started using the internet as a place to conduct their rituals. It seems using machines to experience the supernatural is a common interest among humans.
Another method chaos magicians use is creating sigils. A sigil is basically a unique symbol drawn by the practitioner with a specific intention in mind. The symbol is then subconsciously associated with that intention, and in theory, helps one manifest their goal.
Grant Morrison once claimed his comic book The Invisibles was actually a sigil meant to change the whole world, and seemingly, it did. The comic, published in 1994, predicted the rise of social media, conspiracies becoming accepted facts, and gender fluidity going mainstream.
Both Chaos Magick and Discordianism have associations with an even stranger organization, the Moorish Orthodox Church, an outgrowth of the Moorish Science Temple of America, who’s teachings influenced Malcolm X.
The church was founded in New York City in 1962 and then revived in the early 1990s by an eccentric group of artists, musicians, rocket scientists, cybermeticists, and mystics.
However, according to an urban legend, members of the church, along with some runaways, anarchists, and disgraced chaos scientists, also took part in building a commune in Ong’s Hat, a ghost town somewhere in southern New Jersey.
Supposedly the commune there once housed a bio-feedback “brain machine” built inside a sensory deprivation chamber known as “The Egg”. Apparently one day this machine vanished into thin air and achieved interdimensional travel.
Some claim this event created a gateway to a parallel universe where the members of the old commune now reside. To this day, people who visit Ong’s Hat report many strange anomalies.
These groups then went on to influence the Randonauts, a collective of existential investigators researching unknown spaces outside of predetermined reality tunnels. They do this using a quantum random location generator.
Supposedly these unknown spaces are similar to zones and gateways. Many people are also experiencing meaningful coincidences in these areas or as they approach them.
As we move rapidly into the future and technology advances, should we expect more of this? More people exploring other dimensions? More people hacking reality with mind machines? I’m honestly not sure, but it could be a fun wave to ride.
If you’ve made it this far, I give you a lot of credit. Let me know what you think of this theory and as always, thanks for reading. Happy Halloween!
