the Chao Te Ching

Post by Fresh Heir »

Hi everybody!

I roll with a Discordian community, which has been involved with this project called the Chao Te Ching. It's not done yet, but I thought you guys might be interested in taking a look at it. Discordia and Taoism have a lot (but not everything!) in common.

The groundwork for this philosophy was laid by Kerry Thornley, and was called Zenarchy.

Basically the project is about reinterpreting and rewriting the Tao Te Ching with the Principia Discordia in mind.

The community has been working on this thing for almost a year, and I'm very curious to hear what you guys think about it.

I am not so convinced with the theory of chaos (you call it religion?). Perhaps you'll explain it here. As for your Tao te Ching translation I think it is a try, that is, one of many translations of the same text.
