The most extensive collection in print documenting the Discordian Society's wild and wooly legacy, Historia Discordia features the unique worldview and wit of such illuminated iconoclasts as Robert Anton Wilson and Discordian founders Greg Hill and Kerry Thornley.
Chronicling Discordianism's halcyon days, Historia Discordia presents a fun and freewheeling romp through rare photos, holy tracts, art collages, and fnords, many of which appear for the first time in print.
\"Like communication-god Thoth with his yammering ape, like the all-important noise that Count Korzybski assures us must accompany our every signal, no harmony is possible without an acknowledgement and understanding of discord. Born from the bowling-alley epiphanies of Greg Hill and Kerry Thornley, its disruptive teachings disseminated through the incendiary writings of Robert Anton Wilson and other Eristic luminaries, the Discordian Society has unexpectedly become a landmark of gleefully aggressive sanity in a chaotic and incoherent world. Through this book, we can all involve ourselves in their gloriously constructive quarrel.\"
Etliche Revisionen und Neuausgaben machten die PD seitdem - wie Robert Anton Wilson im Vorwort zur 5. Ausgabe schrieb - zu einem der Großen Bücher des 20. Jahrhunderts, das auch im 21. nichts an Brisanz verloren hat. Für Kenner_innen der PD ist die Historia m.E. eine willkommene und lesenswerte Ergänzung - allen anderen empfehle ich zum Einstieg dringendst die Principia Discordia und/oder fürs Große Ganze sogar Wilsons Illuminatus!-Trilogie.

I've enjoyed tracing the evolution of a lot of the concepts in the PD. For example, there's that line in the PD about how Discordians don't have dogma, they have catma. And it turns out there's a whole little sermon about it that wasn't included in the PD and to my knowledge isn't on the net anywhere. There are a lot of 1st edition PD pages which were revised several times before the 5th edition we're familiar with. A lot of the jokes and 1-liners from the PD are referencing other Discordian documents which have been lost, until now.
For those of us interested in the genealogy of this whackadoo contraption, this is really satisfying. It gives a sense about what the first Discordian communities were like, and who the key players were. (something I've always been curious about) It's also pretty cool to see the early much rougher drafts of some of the texts we're familiar with.
Definitely recommend this for the archivists, collectors, and insane hoarders that get stuck in Eris' orbit.
Of course I've skimmed ahead a bit and am very much looking forward to the essays on Operation MindF**k. There is also a section of Holy Books which includes works alluded to in the Principia: "How I Found Goddess", "The Honest Book of Truth", and "The Epistle to the Paranoids", along with more details on Starbuck, St. Gulik, and Greyface.
Even the heretical SubGeninii can enjoy this book. "Bob" makes an appearance on the colorful front cover as well as within the pages. Be warned that the pretty pictures on the cover will attract the attention of Pinks.
Hail Eris! Praise "Bob"! Hail yourself!
If you have never read the Illuminatus Trilogy, know nothing of the lost continent of Mu, didn't understood the fifth appendix in Anathem, or frequently eat "food" at McDonalds, They Will Come For You if you attempt to read this. Or perhaps you need a comfortable chair.
This is a book you should not read. It will potentially damage your perceptions of reality, cause you to question long held beliefs, and has been accused of inciting male pattern baldness and fondness for plaid. Since the book is in hardcopy fnord, it also means extra work for the Conspiracy, as they will need to sneak into your house at night to make appropriate changes without your knowledge instead of simply pushing out electronic updates via the orbiting mind control lasers.
The Senate Wives Committee has determined ##################[REDACTED]########## and subsequently discredited by the inherent truthiness of the concept. It is also important to not use all 23 of the little squares inserted into the middle of the book at once, or handle the sheet with damp hands.
This is a fun read, I feel better for it, and adds greatly to my appreciation of other works of High Weirdness, Bob, and the pursuit of Slack. Share the book with friends; if they stay friends after reading it, you may get to be Popes together. If you want to, I mean. I'm not judging you.
