What is Chaoticism?

It is a term I invented. Don't be judgemental, however; invention is an essential aspect of the material described here. It seemed a convenient term for perspectives which seem fascinated by Chaos and it's imagery. Three general categories of perspectives evidence themselves here: Chaos Magick, Discordianism, and Psychic Youth.

Chaos Magick is a branch of Ceremonial Magick promoted by Peter Carrol and his organization, the IOT. It is highly deconstructive, and influenced as much by Spare as Crowley. Chaos is seen as the untransmittable supralogical experience gnosis is known to be. The methodology of Chaos Mages is extremely exploratory, and as such remains on the farthest fringes of occult study.

Discordians were a prank religion often associated with the yippies. Popularized by Robert Anton Wilson's books, they have expanded into a religion of playfulness, pleasuring and laughter. Most Discordian material is a wry combination of satire and wisdom. They worship Eris, also known as Discordia, the Goddess of Chaos.

The philosophy of the Temple of Psychic Youth was promoted by Genesis P-Orridge, one of it's founding members, with the band Psychic TV. Fascinated by body modification, ecstatic drug states, sadomasochism, serial killers, cults, Crowley, ecology, and tribalism, TOPY's imagery has consistantly remained far before it's time.
