Hmmm.  Eris is interesting.  I like Concordia better.  :)

Eris and Concordia (or Aneris) being sisters have a strong and opposing connection to one another.

It is one of the deeper Erisian mysteries to know this!

This is a rip copy of the text describing the "dogma" of the "mystery" :)


- In Discordian mythology, Aneris is described as the sister of Eris aka Discordia. Whereas Eris/Discordia is the Goddess of Disorder and Being, Aneris/Harmonia is the Goddess of Order and Non-Being.

"DOGMA III - HISTORY 32, 'COSMOGONY'" in Principia Discordia, states
In the beginning there was VOID, who had two daughters; one (the smaller) was that of BEING, named ERIS, and one (the larger) was of NON-BEING, named ANERIS.

The sterile Aneris becomes jealous of Eris (who was born pregnant), and starts making existent things non-existent. This explains why life begins, and later ends in death.
And to this day, things appear and disappear in this very manner.

The names of Eris and Aneris (who are later given a brother, Spirituality), are used to show some fundamental Discordian principles in "Psycho-Metaphysics":
The Aneristic Principle is that of APPARENT ORDER; the Eristic Principle is that of APPARENT DISORDER. Both order and disorder are man made concepts and are artificial divisions of PURE CHAOS, which is a level deeper than is the level of distinction making. -

What a great idea! The entire quote is one of the founding principals upon which I view the enitre universe ;)

There are a number of editions, but here's some links in case you've not found them yet ..

Also, if you like, read up on the story of Eris and the Golden Apple - with the word Kallisti written on it - and the trouble she caused at the wedding of Peleus and Thetis.
Really gives a good idea of what a trouble maker she is :)

I like to combine reading of the Principia Discordia with reading the philosophical speculations and theories of the Principia Cybernetica.

Both of which compliment and (sort of) negate one another - which is just the way I like it :)
