Principia Discordia quotes by Gregory Hill
#1. The Initiate must be totally naked, to demonstrate that he is truly a human being and not something else in disguise like a cabbage or something. #Quote by Gregory Hill
Principia Discordia quotes by Robert Shea
#2. Hang on for some metaphysics. The Aneristic Principle is that of order, the Eristic Principle is that of disorder. On the surface, the Universe seems (to the ignorant) to be ordered; this is the aneristic illusion. Actually, what order is "there" is imposed on primal chaos in the same sense that a person's name is draped over his actual self. It is the job of the scientist, for example, to implement this principle in a practical manner and some are quite brilliant at it. But on closer examination, order disolves into disorder, which is the ERISTIC ILLUSION. - Malaclypse the Younger, K.S.C., Principia Discordia #Quote by Robert Shea
Principia Discordia quotes by Dave Sim
#3. Women, he would say, are not Muses. Muses are Muses. To confuse one with the other is to mistake the Devouring Void for the Seminal Light. Earthly Women and the Muses are ancient, sworn enemies. The battlefield is the Creative Male. On the one side is the encampment of Discordia, of Diana, of Venus located in his Heart and in his Groin. On the other is the Bastion of Calliope, Clio, Erato, Euterpe, Melpomene, Polyhymnia, Terpsichore, Thalia and Urania, in his Brain and in his Mind. The Muses are tolerant and understanding of border raids, skirmishes, and harassing maneuvers. Throughout the history of the Male Light, there have been few painters, few writers, who have not had a She Who Must Be Accommodated. For some it was their mothers. For many their wives, their mistresses, their girlfriends. For many it was their daughters, a favourite waitress, a stripper, a whore. To the Muses, they are all one. Mother, whore, wife, daughter, stripper, waitress, mistress, girlfriend. #Quote by Dave Sim
Principia Discordia quotes by Ted Chiang
#4. In the Principia Mathematica, Bertrand Russell and Alfred Whitehead attempted to give a rigorous foundation to mathematics using formal logic as their basis. They began with what they considered to be axioms, and used those to derive theorems of increasing complexity. By page 362, they had established enough to prove 1 + 1 = 2. #Quote by Ted Chiang
Principia Discordia quotes by Stephen King
#5. Commala-come-come
There's a young man with a gun.
Young man lost his honey
When she took it on the run.

She took it on the run!
Left her baby lonely
But he baby ain't done.

The wind'll blow ya through.
Ya gotta go where ka's wind blows ya
Cause there's nothin else to do.

Nothin else to do!
Gotta go where ka's wind blows ya
Cause there's nothin else to do.

Can you tell me what ya see?
Is it ghosts or just the mirror
That makes ya wanna flee?

I beg ya, tell me!
Is it ghosts or just your darker self
That makes ya wanna flee?

Whatcha doin at my do'?
If ya doan tell me now, my friend
I'll lay ya on de flo'.

I can lay ya low!
The things I've do to such as you
You never wanna know.

Ain't it grand to be alive?
To look out on Discordia
When the Demon Moon arrives.

Even when the shadows rise!
To see the world and walk the world
Makes ya glad to be alive.

You're in a nasty fix!
To take a hand in traitor's glove
Is to grasp a sheaf of sticks!

Nothing there but thorns and sticks!
When your find your hand in #Quote by Stephen King
Principia Discordia quotes by Thomas S. Kuhn
#6. Unable either to practice science without the Principia or to make that work conform to the corpuscular standards of the seventeenth century, scientists gradually accepted the view that gravity was indeed innate #Quote by Thomas S. Kuhn
Principia Discordia quotes by Bertrand Russell
#7. The result of the scientific work we have been considering was that the outlook of educated men was completely transformed. At the beginning of the century, Sir Thomas Browne took part in trials for witchcraft; at the end, such a thing would have been impossible. In Shakespeare's time, comets were still portents; after the publication of Newton's Principia in 1687, it was known that he and Halley had calculated the orbits of certain comets, and that they were as obedient as the planets to the law of gravitation. The reign of law had established its hold on men's imaginations, making such things as magic and sorcery incredible. In 1700 the mental outlook of educated men was completely modern; in 1600, except among a very few, it was still largely medieval. #Quote by Bertrand Russell
Principia Discordia quotes by Neal Stephenson
#8. But at last I came to understand that I was making it too complicated. For you, this is no mingling at all; for you the Book of Revelation, the ramblings of Hermes Trismegistus, and Principia Mathematica are all signatures torn from the same immense Book. #Quote by Neal Stephenson
Principia Discordia quotes by Nalo Hopkinson
#9. I am Amaxon Corazon Junia Principia Delgado the Third, and I bent over my meal and wept luxurious tears into my green banana porridge. It was a perfect decoction, and it now would not satisfy me. #Quote by Nalo Hopkinson
Principia Discordia quotes by William Whewell
#10. Nobody since Newton has been able to use geometrical methods to the same extent for the like purposes; and as we read the Principia we feel as when we are in an ancient armoury where the weapons are of gigantic size; and as we look at them we marvel what manner of man he was who could use as a weapon what we can scarcely lift as a burden. #Quote by William Whewell
Principia Discordia quotes by Stephen Hawking
#11. In 1687, when Sir Isaac Newton published his Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica, probably the most important single work ever published in the physical sciences. #Quote by Stephen Hawking
Principia Discordia quotes by J.G. Ballard
#12. One looks forward to the day when the General Theory of Relativity and the Principia will outsell the Kama Sutra in back-street bookshops. #Quote by J.G. Ballard
Principia Discordia quotes by Abdus Salam
#13. It is good to recall that three centuries ago, around the year 1660, two of the greatest monuments of modern history were erected, one in the West and one in the East; St. Paul's Cathedral in London and the Taj Mahal in Agra. Between them, the two symbolize, perhaps better than words can describe, the comparative level of architectural technology, the comparative level of craftsmanship and the comparative level of affluence and sophistication the two cultures had attained at that epoch of history. But about the same time there was also created - and this time only in the West - a third monument, a monument still greater in its eventual import for humanity. This was Newton's Principia, published in 1687. Newton's work had no counterpart in the India of the Mughals. #Quote by Abdus Salam
Principia Discordia quotes by Isaac Newton
#14. If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of Giants. #Quote by Isaac Newton
Principia Discordia quotes by Stephen King
#15. I denied Discordia and regret nothing; I have spat into the bodiless eyes of the Crimson King and rejoice; I threw my lot with the gunslinger and the White and never once questioned the choice. #Quote by Stephen King
Principia Discordia quotes by Sherwin B. Nuland
#16. At times, morality can be dismissed as a matter of personal conscience, no matter how widespread its acceptance. Ethics, on the other hand, arises from societal or group commitments to principia of behavior. #Quote by Sherwin B. Nuland
Principia Discordia quotes by Edward F. Edinger
#17. Eris, the Goddess of Discord and sister of Ares, presides over separatio. It was she who came uninvited to a marriage on Olympus and flung into the midst of the gathering an apple inscribed "to the fairest." Thus she brought about the judgment of Paris. Comparisons are odious and comparison is what the golden apple provoked. To determine what is "more" and what is "most" requires and leads to judgments. #Quote by Edward F. Edinger
Principia Discordia quotes by Charles Shaar Murray
#18. Drummond is many things, and one of those things is a magician. ( ... ) Art is magic, and so is pop. Bill Drummond is a cultural magician, and 45 is his logbook. Shelve alongside Brian Eno's A Year With Swollen Appendices. Hail Discordia ! #Quote by Charles Shaar Murray
Principia Discordia quotes by G.H. Hardy
#19. I can remember Bertrand Russell telling me of a horrible dream. He was in the top floor of the University Library, about A.D. 2100. A library assistant was going round the shelves carrying an enormous bucket, taking down books, glancing at them, restoring them to the shelves or dumping them into the bucket. At last he came to three large volumes which Russell could recognize as the last surviving copy of Principia Mathematica. He took down one of the volumes, turned over a few pages, seemed puzzled for a moment by the curious symbolism, closed the volume, balanced it in his hand and hesitated.... #Quote by G.H. Hardy
Principia Discordia quotes by Douglas R. Hofstadter
#20. Godel showed how a statement about any mathematical formal system (such as the assertion that Principia Mathematica is contradiction-free) can be translated into a mathematical statement inside number theory (the study of whole numbers). In other words, any metamathematical statement can be imported into mathematics, and in its new guise the statement simply asserts (as do all statements of number theory) that certain whole numbers have certain properties or relationships to each other. But on another level, it also has a vastly different meaning that, on its surface, seems as far removed from a statement of number theory as would be a sentence in a Dostoevsky novel. #Quote by Douglas R. Hofstadter
