Another 'Principia Discordia'

Jesse Walker has sent along a link to the original Principia Discordia, which differs from later versions, as a follow-up to my earlier post.  Mr. Walker remarks, "A better link, with lots of old Operation Mindfuck correspondence at the end."

This I find absolutely fascinating.

Thanks to Jesse Walker and to you, Tom, for putting this out there.

Illuminatus! is dedicated to Hill and Thornley, and the book uses the Principia's tone and ideas as a driver of the narrative.

This earlier version seems like some sort of Ur-text. Very very interesting...and a close analysis with the later, more widely distributed Principia might yield... something. Maybe something "big"?
