Our Commandments:

1: Fuck it.
2: Do it yourself cuz ain't no one gonna do it for you.
3: The universe hates you. Deal with it.
4: If it's wrong it's probably your fault.
5: Yearn for something each day.

I'm not sure if we wear hats yet, but if we do they will be damn silly in an ironic sort of way.

I hate to say it but you can't really have Existentialist commandments, it's far too individual, fragmented, vand ague. You also run into a lot of written commandment problems when you frequently encounter subjects beyond language and conception.

Less commandments, more silly hats!

You can't even pretend to start a Church of Existentialism if you haven't plowed through Being and Nothingness. :p

I'm a Discordian.

As for celebrity endorsements, sure Scientology has Travolta but we've got Kafka!

I am standing on the platform of the tram and I am entirely uncertain as to my place in this world, in this town, in my family. Not even approximately could I state what claims I might justifiably advance in any direction. I am quite unable to defend the fact that I am standing on this platform, holding this strap, letting myself be carried along by this tram, and that people are getting out of the tram’s way or walking along quietly or pausing in front of the shop windows. – Not that anyone asks me to, but that is immaterial.

I agree, which is why we have commandment #1.

And I agree about the silly hats. The more absurd the hat the higher the rank.

Yeah but according to your underlying philosphy you'd have to be the only one. That sounds pretty lonely, are you sure you don't wonder why you're alone in this hostile universe? Mmmm? Mmmm?

Thank you Dori.

<=== Existentialist.

Is there a church of existentialism? Yep. It's called Christianity.
Honest.

Only difference, is we leave the "yay jesus" at the door, and question what it means to live a good life, without diluted moralistic crap.

To paraphrase Heidegger
In becoming, we seek Being, in order to obtain being.



Our Commandments:
1: Fuck it.
2: Do it yourself cuz ain't no one gonna do it for you.
3: The universe hates you. Deal with it.
4: If it's wrong it's probably your fault.
5: Yearn for something each day.

1. is anti-existential antipathy. quite the opposite of what your goal should be
2. is Randian Objective Egoism
3. That's pessimism
4. That's... i don't know
5. Selfish Egoism

So there.


Tess of the D'Obermans, I should have brought this up before, but while I respect almost everything you say (when you're not trolling) I do not have any positive feelings towards being called Dori.

I am standing on the platform of the tram and I am entirely uncertain as to my place in this world, in this village, in my family. Not even approximately could I state what claims I might justifiably advance in any direction. I have been told that on every tram there is one idiot. I have never been able to find that idiot. How odd.
