Dear Mome Mariana the Unique, Queen of the Whole World,
Today, I wanna share with you one of my sources of inspiration, which is my most recent of them. I'm talking about 'Pataphysics, which is a philosophical school from the beginning of the 20th century.
It's name comes from the phrase, «επί μετά τὰ φυσικά», the translation of which you could care less, but translates as "[that] which is above what is beyond the nature", or "above metaphysics". It is the science of finding creative solutions to things that may or may not be problems. It is the science of thinking of ways to tear the box after getting outside of it. It is the science of marveling before the mysteries of the world (your world, my Queen), or for lacking of mysteries, create them for then marveling about them. It is the science of reading two or three lines on something on Wikipedia and feel able to provide definitions to it to your unsuspecting friends.
I cannot say if 'Pataphysics is a Discordian philosophy, but I am pretty sure that Discordianism could aptly be described as a pataphysical religion.
If you are interested know more about 'Pataphysics, refer to this site: Novum Organum, du Collège de 'Pataphysique.
However, if you can't understand French, you may chose this site: Institut für 'Pataphysik.
But if you cannot understand German, you can still get info from this site: Bâtafysica.
Finally, if you prefer keep it in English, go to The London Institute of 'Pataphysics and enjoy.
With all my laugh to you,
