Most people, however, do not want to be at the center of chaos, in fact there is an ancient eastern curse: "may you live in interesting times". Interesting times were considered pretty bad news, but for a Discordian this is more of a blessing than a curse. Which means you can wish it on other people without fucking up your karma (we hope).
The Chaos Spiral represents enjoyment of 'interesting times'. Doodle it on your notebooks, write it on your walls, stick it on your webpages - demonstrate your willingness to live in interesting times... If you have any, er, interesting times as a result of this - please let us know.
The spiral also represents the Discordian Lifestyle(!), most discordians are often found at the center of chaos, enjoying themselves. Often the chaos is of their own instigation.
