"Nothing is true. Everything is permitted."
The phrase can be found in the "Principia Discordia", the "bible" of the Discordians written by Kerry Thornley, and online here at the Carnegie Mellon School of Computer Science website. Robert Anton Wilson wrote the introduction to the Fourth Edition. The phrase is not original to the author, but it is a Discordian mantra, and an apt description of chaos magick. If you read the Principia, you will get an idea of what this philosophy consists of. In a word--institutionalized confusion. Discordians take nothing seriously. Life is a game without any rules.
