"And the stars are projectors, yeah, projecting our lives down to this planet Earth." - Modest Mouse
Adam Gorightly has written a book about Discordia creator & perennial conspiracy icon Kerry Thornley, called The Prankster and the Conspiracy. Ear Candy has a review of the release and an interview with the author.
One example of Kerry's brilliance was co-founding of the Discordian Society (along with Greg Hill)! While the Discordian Society wasn't the only 'spoof' religion created in the '60s (another example is the Reformed Druids of North America founded in 1963), it was one of the most ingenious. Discordianism can best be described as a "revelation of the doctrine of chaos and the worship of the Goddess Eris. The practice of Discordianism, i.e. sowing the seeds of chaos as a means of achieving a higher state of awareness - is a perpetual game, better known in some quarters as 'operation mindfuck'."
