Dear Mariana, the Unique, Queen of the Whole World,
I am glad you like my messages, even so much to show them to someone
else. Perchance your friend and a friend of mine can become Alphists
next year. Then we could call that a tendency of 100% increase. If we
manage to maintain that rhythm, by 2055 we will have to accept pets and
cattle as Discordians too!
I forgot to say that besides pacing down sending emails, or stopping
sending them there was a third possibility, which is my messages
becoming shorter and more arcane.
I am to eager to tell you of a Discordian epiphany I experienced today.
I was on my way to meet my wife on Shopping Light when I saw some
Jehovah's witnesses exposing some billboards. I noticed that one of them
was in English and said, "Why do bad things happen to good people?" over
a still pic of sick person. Then I laughed! :-D
You are too fresh on Zen Dada (doesn't matter what it is), let me
explain. Usually I would answer this kind of question by saying that
there is no reason for bad things not happen to good people, gods don't
play the role of a father for grown-ups, &c.
Today this kind of thought lasted for a few seconds for soon I perceived
that that question is unanswerable given the premises. There are not
"good" people nor "bad" things. "Good" and "bad" are just lame
classifications. Moreover, a sickness is not bad. Cancer is cells
growing out of control. Parasites and bacteria are livings things having
food. Viral infections are viruses reproducing. It is all part of nature
and nature cannot be judged morally.
The answer, I thought is "mu"!
Today is Pungenday, the 47th day of Confusion in the YOLD 3180
