The Law of Fives is one of the oldest Erisian Mysterees. It was first revealed to Good Lord Omar and is one of the great contributions to come from The Hidden Temple of The Happy Jesus.

POEE subscribes to the Law of Fives of Omar's sect. And POEE also recognizes the holy 23 (2+3=5) that is incorporated by Episkopos Dr. Mordecai Malignatus, KNS, into his Discordian sect, The Ancient Illuminated Seers of Bavaria.

The Law of Fives states simply that: ALL THINGS HAPPEN IN FIVES, OR ARE DIVISIBLE BY OR ARE MULTIPLES OF FIVE, OR ARE SOMEHOW DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY APPROPRIATE TO 5.

The Law of Fives is never wrong(also, never cabbage).

In the Erisian Archives is an old memo from Omar to Mal-2: "I find the Law of Fives to be more and more manifest the harder I look."

ProofsEdit

There are a number of proofs of the Law of Fives. That number is five, or is related to five. Discordian scholars are always appending more.

  • Descartes, famed philosopher who thought that he could prove the existence of God, was invited go and tutor the 23 year old Queen of Scandinavia. The rigors of the cold climate and the fact that she demanded that the lessons began at 5 am eventually caused him to succumb to pneumonia and die. Recently, evidence has come to light that Decartes might not have been killed by natural causes. Some suspect that he was killed by arsenic poisoning.

  E is the 5th letter of the alphabet
R is the 18th letter 18 x 10 = 180 a multiple of 5
I is 9th 9 x 10 = 90 a multiple of 5
S looks like a 5 and is 19th 19 x 10 = 190 another multiple of 5

The law of 5 is never wrong. Order is a lie, there is only rhythm in the chaos. Our Lady Discord loves to dance.
