Adventures in Pataphysics

Indulge in wild speculation & black humor.

'Pataphysics (French: 'Pataphysique), a term coined by French writer Alfred Jarry (1873 - 1907), is a philosophy or pseudophilosophy dedicated to studying what lies beyond the realm of metaphysics. It is a parody of the theory and methods of modern science and is often expressed in nonsensical language. A practitioner of 'pataphysics is a 'pataphysician or a 'pataphysicist.
