Millennium Desktop is excited to announce the launch of the new and improved "official website" of the Selfosophy Institute. In true "1013 style" the spoof site's owner and creator, Scott L. Pugliese (a.k.a Selfosophy Psycho) chose to launch the website today "in celebration of J. Onan Goopta's Birthday, as well as the 50th Anniversary of the founding of the Selfosophy Institute." Scott explains it is just one small part of the spoof elements he has developed for the fictitious history of Selfosophy, inspired by the satirical spirit of the 2nd season Millennium episode, "Jose Chung's Doomsday Defense." Scott been working hard, composing the material for the website, off and on, over the course of the past three years.
The new website currently includes individual pages for Selfimonials (testimonials), a biographical sketch of Onan Goopta and the Institute, Positive Negation, Positivics (Neuro-Positivic Programming), and Selfosophical Therapies. There are several pages set aside for Selfosophical Theologies, inorder to cover the "complexity and confidentiality" of Selfosophical spiritual belief and practice. He already has several more pages in the works and several others planned for in the future, including (but not limited to): Goopta Yoga, Fat Negation, Goopta Bangra, Selfosophy's Hierarchy, Anti-Selfosophists, the NeurOmega Course, Upbeat Links to organizations and personalities that support the "positive thinking" ideals and/or "self-helpful practices" of Selfosophy, and much, much more!
In discussions with Scott, he stated that the website is full of 1013 and Millennium references and caveats in the spirit of what he calls "1013 style." See if you can spot them. You will also be seeing some familiar faces, turning up at the website in future pages of the site, in keeping with the Doomsday episode's use of images of David Duchovny, as well as name-anagrams similar to that of Bobby Wingood (Robert Goodwin of the 1013 crew).
The site is very funny, spoofing all sorts of self-help, motivational, religious, and pseudo-scientific organizations, personalities, and programs. Scott invites you to "take what you want and leave the rest," sarcastically referencing a hackneyed slogan of 12-step programs.
Visit the Selfosophy Institute website today, and (as the Positive Negation page says) make your appointment with destiny!
