Although most religions revere the principles of harmony & order in the Universe, Discordianism can be interpreted as a recognition that disharmony & chaos are equally valid aspects of reality. The matron deity of Discordianism is Eris, the ancient Greek goddess of discord, whom the Romans identified their goddess Discordia. Aneristic Principle: With our concept making apparatus called mind we look at reality through the ideas-about-reality which our cultures give us. The ideas-about-reality are mistakenly labeled reality & unenlightened people are forever perplexed by the fact that other cultures see reality differently. It is only the ideas-about-reality which differ. We look at the world through windows on which have been drawn grids (concepts). Different philosophies use different grids. A culture is a group of people with rather similar grids. Through a window we view chaos, & relate it to the points on our grid, & thereby understand it. The Order is in the Grid.
