An influence for Z's taunting style or an influence for wacky Z theories? Or perhaps both? Or neither?
Discordianism, I believe, is an invention of the psychedelic drug culture in SF during the late 1950s and early 1960s, way before the invention of Hippie culture in SF. Discordianism seems to have patented the concept of the "mindfuck", providing seemingly meaningful information to confound and confuse those trying to make sense of it. Sound familiar?
In The Illuminatus! Trilogy, the symbol for Discordianism includes a pyramid with 17 steps because 17 has "virtually no interesting geometric, arithmetic, or mystical qualities". However, for the Illuminati, 17 is tied with the "23/17 phenomenon".
Are all of Z's communications, symbols and ciphers not essentially a very effective mindfuck?

I wonder if that apple on the Z envelope, was the Apple of Discord ? It looked like a cherry to me, but most believe it was a apple.
