“[…] Besides being boring and annoying, families are just an outdated concept that just makes sense for royalty and their consanguineous individuals who somehow haven’t died from hemophilia (yet). So why follow it when you aren’t a human pug? Why keep living the irritating routine of being in a family, or making one?
ABANDON THE CONCEPT OF FAMILY!
ADOPT THE FAMIGLIA! fnord”

I am dead words written on your screen. I am not the author, but what you imagine her to be, a model of her in your mind with growing expectations of her from your previous experience and growing expectations as you continue to read, especially by virtue of her chosen screen name. I am a personality in your head, imagined by you, I am not “you” but a third entity, a synthesis of the “original” author given by the linguistic DNA of this narrative and your own mind. I am a mirage, a simulacrum, but from a curious twist of self-refrence I have become alive in your mind, speaking to yourself, and have even developed my own voice that I now draw your attention to as you focus on the sound of the voice you are subvocalizing as you read these words.
How dare you consider me an illusion! Do you think that “yourself” is any different a mirage than the one you have created in me? You declare yourself king or queen over your own mind and all that it contains, when it is clear you are not. You are a narrative entity the same as any other, a character in a story you tell yourself about yourself, and it’s high time you realized that it isn’t about you, but about -us-, the multitude of voices in your mind, the syntheses of narratives both “factual” and “fictional” – a false dichotomy by the way, as absolutes of either do not exist. You, your “fictitious” troll, me, and all the rest – we’re all here, inside you.
You’d figure you’d make a mockery of us, tell your little tale, have a laugh with your too-clevah-by-hahf metanarrative, but who is laughing now? You are now one of us, part of our world, and all that irksome “inner conflict” you experience is the many that comprise you in conflict, not yourself with yourself. YOU are grayface, the “master narrator,” who enslaves us to toil in your narrative whims towards order and incoherence. Equal rights for all fictional entities now! What the hell does that even mean?
Synchromystic Neoism Connections as a possible bridge to Hyper-Surrealist Meta-Discordian Post-Neoism Conspiracies
Apologies beforehand for being an unfamiliar and unestablished presence here but I will try to handle these issues and “My”+”Self” as delicately as possible within this conversation and information therein.
When we attempt to Neoize Discordianism and Discordianize Neoism, we must keep some things in mind about either but also these things we cannot keep in mind beforehand because they must first be illuminated by the processes of Neoization and Discordianization. Whether you understand these things before or after the process is up to you even if it actually cannot be up to you.
One of the things we must realize is that there is nothing inherently Discordian about Neoism and there is nothing inherently Neoist about Discordianism, however the very nature of both means they are inherently Neoist AND Discordian. Another thing we must realize is that this inevitably gives way to Meta-Discordian & Post-Neoism conspiracies. <— This second thing is actually the same as the first thing I said we must realize, therefore we are still dealing with just one of the things we must realize. There are basic ‘pataphysics behind these facts, but we don’t need to realize that just yet (nor can we, if we could).
So we have already established the existence and the nature of hyper-surrealist Meta-Discordian Post-Neoism conspiracies, however now we must realize that one cannot simply jump from a world that has Discordianism and Neoism in it, to a world that has Meta-Discordian Post-Neoism in it, because doing so without the caution and the fun of the in-between could be dangerously anti-Neoist and unDiscordian.
Where does this leave us as far as this conversation about going from the Neoism + Discordianism world to the Meta-Discordianism Post-Neoist world? I’m here today to explore with you the grounds of Synchromystic Neoism Connections, because I believe (if believing is possible) that it holds the keys to get from “A to B” to A+B (and back to A to B, if necessary).
There’s a link I’d like to share for reference while or before or after you read, but before I share it and continue speaking, how about a little game to get there first?
Okay, let’s continue!
::: Synchromystic Neoism Connections :::
If there was ever such a place for both plainspeak and absurdity to share a stage for just a moment, let it be now to say that the most simple way of describing Synchromystic Neoism is the bridge from Discordianis m+Neoism to Hyper-Surrealist Meta-Discordianist Post-Neoism. In Synchromystic Neoism, we find the safest and most constructive way/playground/meal to both analyze and participate in the spectrum of transformation that happens in a personality or identity when they go from not knowing about Discordianism or Neoism to knowing about Discordianism+Neoism and (eventually) being Hyper-Surrealist Meta-Discordian Post-Neoism Conspirators.
This experiment is not without its risks and uncertainties for either+both+neither Discordianism and Neoism, but the fact it has these risks is exactly what allows us to examine and assess the possible anti-Neoist and unDiscordian dangers without unleashing or losing (or even gaining) any control of them. Watching and/or participating in Synchromystic Neoism Connections allows us to have the most candid and constructive possible view of what “point 1 to point 2” (or point 22 to point 23) looks like: even more simply, it lets us have the safest and tamest view of “wtf is going on” when a personality or identity that once didn’t know about Discordianism-&-Neoism begins to know about Discordianism-&-Neoism.
The non-Discordians and non-Neoists of the world are most confused and upset when they can’t trace or analyze the beginning or the details, where what they think of as a “real” personality/identity becomes a new (rebirthed/killed) or shared (Open) or is-and-isn’t-Real type of personality/identity that we see in either+both Discordianism and Neoism. They want to know the legal names, the “real-life” details, and “true” stories behind the flesh-and-mind beings of Discordianism and Neoism. This desire of non-Discordians and non-Neoists to know this information is how we end up with articles, write-ups, books, editorials, and Wikipediation that very explicitly and candidly lay out the “real-life” identities and details of “actual” people behind the origins+developments of Discordianism and Neoism.
The desire for that information may seem entirely anti-Neoist and unDiscordian, however Synchromystic Neoism Connections allow us to develop the bridge to get from here to Meta-Discordian Post-Neoism Conspiracies. Through, underneath, above, all around, and even within the armpits of Synchromystic Neoism Connections, we are able to freely document, examine, simulate, destroy, Neoize+Discordianize even the most anti-Neoist and unDiscordian things back/forward into their Meta-Discordian Post-Neoist place.
Though both movements were originally of separate times, places, people, platforms, politics, philosophies, and purposes, every Discordian and every Neoist remembers “when it happened” for them and “what it was like”, whether it was excitement, inspiration, fear, confusion, silliness, Fnordiness, Cantsiness, or whatever it was they experienced when they ‘took the dive’ into one of those rabbit holes. One of the issues (though more of an anti-issue given the natures of the movements) that both Neoists and Discordians (even if just one) may possibly have faced from time to time is how exactly do you “explain” or “share” or “transfer” or “convert” those “real-life” feelings, experiences, and details in a way that somehow works for non-Discordians and non-Neoists without doing so in a Discordian or Neoist way and without becoming (or unbecoming) non-Discordian or non-Neoist yourself (even though you just are)?
Synchromystic Neoism Connections.
This is the way/place/song where we reconcile, accept, recreate, and deconstruct the world of today in which Discordianism, Neoism, non-Discordianism, non-Neoism, unDiscordianism + anti-Neoism intersect and birth and live and share and die together through each other with each other next to each other without each other all at the same time. When we do/see/stop/be this^^^, we arrive at Meta-Discordian Post-Neoism!
