Good is bad can be associated with the As above so below axiom if you realize that the cross of lorraine, which is the symbol of this new esoteric group, is essentially a Christian cross with an extra bar at the bottom. Apparently it suggests the ideal that the blood of satan, the adversary is fully integrated with that of the saviour. Now if you talked to an old proto-gnostic like Marcion, he might tell you that Christ was never meant to be "the redeemer", but instead should have the name Chrestos "the good". So that which is above is like that which is below.

I guess in a sense it's about that human failing we all have of taking polarities and focusing on the extremes. Good and bad being only levels of preferred morality in a given society.

Magdalen, I suggested the Illuminatus! Trilogy for just the reasons you suggest. If it is anything, it is a hymn to discordian ideals. Taking your lotto idea a bit further, think of life as such an embarrassment of riches. The people and experiences you encounter every day are in fact the "friends and money" you never EARNED ... although there are some Buddhists and other believers in karma who might disagree with you there.
