The OMNet - Foundation Document C. Divination Web II - Information ________________________________________________________________________ Introduction The production of the Mage's Guide to the Internet (MaGI) is currently the major function of the OMNet, the Occult and Mysticism Network, which works to facilitate the exchange of esoteric materials, especially those of a magical or mystical nature. The OMNet is a nonsectarian organization and the MaGI serves the needs of those with particular as well as general interests, while it sets the stage for interdisciplinary studies within the Internet and beyond. With the advent of Mosaic and the World-Wide Web (WWW), it may become easier to maintain a continually-updated version of this document, accessible via Gopher, FTP and maybe even email-response. As the OMNet grows in membership and activity, it will begin to support other projects, such as coordinating between file sites and discussion groups. See Appendix B for more information about the OMNet. Version 2.0 of the Mage's Guide to the Internet does *not* replace Version 1.0, though it supercedes it. The reasoning behind this is that Version 1.0 is *much* wider in scope, including quite a lot of information about diverse groups (e.g. Subgenius, Discordian, etc.) which Version 2.0 bypasses completely in favor of the purposes and scope of OMNet. If you have comments or queries regarding the *contents* of the MaGI, please send email to the address below. The OMNet is here to serve you, the interested public, and so am I here to serve the OMNet. Yours faithfully, Tyagi Nagasiva (Tyagi@HouseofKaOs.Abyss.com) Editor, Mage's Guide to the Internet (MaGI) ss, Occult and Mysticism Network (OMNet) ________________________________________________________________________ I.

The OMNet - Foundation Document OMNet, the Occult and Mysticism Network _Foundation Document_, dated 940320 (Equinox) PURPOSE The purposes of this organization shall be to facilitate public access to occult and mystical documents and social groups, and to promote interdisciplinary information exchange. FOUNDATION STATEMENT For the purposes of this organization, the terms 'occult' and 'mysticism' shall be defined as follows: By 'occult' we shall mean any discipline of Divination (such as chiromancy, cartomancy, necromancy, etc.), Astrology, Numerology, Alchemy, Qabalah, or Ritual Magick. It shall not include such things as Psychicism, Spiritualism, Fortune-telling, Herbalism, Hypnotism, or any of the various forms of Therapy or Massage. 'Mysticism' shall include disciplines of Liberation, Awakening, Purification, those involving a direct relationship, or unification, with 'the divine', etc., especially as separate from any religious systems in which they may be found. It may also tangentally include attendant philosophy or mythology which serves as an underpinning, result or functional mechanism of any mystical discipline. INITIAL FOCUS The context of initial activity shall be what is popularly called 'the Internet' or 'cyberspace', and it shall consist of maintaining and revising the document which has been released as 'the Mage's Guide to the Internet'. Subsequent efforts may include the establishment of a membership (organizations, individuals) based upon participation in fulfulling the purposes of OMNet. Other possible activities may include the establishment of a mechanism by which various groups within the Internet (and perhaps later, society at large) may be monitored, with pertinent documents combined, distributed to membership and made available to the interested public (such as through the distribution to ftp sites). LONG-RANGE Should the usefulness and success of this organization allow, OMNet shall extend itself beyond cyberspace and become a legal entity, serving nonprofit, educational purposes if and as so dictated by its administrators. THE ss (subservant) OMNet shall be represented by its subservant (ss), initially Tyagi Nagasiva, who shall, while adhering strictly to the purposes stated above, meet the needs and directives of the membership. Should the membership be without unified voice or resolved authority, then the ss shall be vested with the power to decide any particular issue after a reasonable period of discussion has concluded (as determined by the ss). Aside from dismissal or undue hardship, the membership shall assign the ss to any task within OMNet that they feel is appropriate, except where this assignment would compromise the ss' ability to faithfully and accurately represent OMNet to the public at large. The term of office for the ss shall be life or until that individual sees fit to burden another with said responsibility. The ss shall appoint and/or employ any needed assistants to perform the duties laid out above in service to OMNet and its membership. The ss has absolutely NO authority with regard to membership decisions, with the exception of unresolved authority as stated above, though if the membership so wishes it, it may consult with the ss as per its needs/desires. When no membership exists beyond that of the ss, then that individual shall determine the precise nature of 'best service' in regards fulfilling the purposes of OMNet above. In this circumstance, the ss shall take whatever measures are necessary for the preservation of the sanctity of the organization. ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE The membership shall initially be a consensus-based structure that may reform itself into any political edifice which it agrees shall best serve the purposes of the OMNet. By 'concensus-based' we mean that all members must understand and assent to actions taken by the whole. Subsequently, any ambiguity of authority that cannot be resolved by the membership (as described above) shall be adjucated by the ss, and this is the only official role which the ss may take in the political structure of the organization aside from advisor, counsel, and representative. Example: The membership decides to become a monarchy. All membership accepts a 'King and Queen' to rule them. At some point a member questions the legitimacy of this rulership and the authority of the regents. There is discussion and the dissenting member is not persuaded. The ss then hears both cases and decides as to the legitimacy of the regents. Should any membership structure collapse, then it shall revert to a consensus-based organization once more. Other details of organizational structure are to be defined and handled by the membership as it sees fit. Examples: Method of becoming a member Membership status differences and authority for each Responsibility and roles of individual members beyond that outlined above Tyagi Nagasiva OMNet subservant [MEMBERSHIP as of 4/29/94 : 5] __________________________________________________________________ C.

It was, unless otherwise indicated, entirely my construction and is, as are all of my generatons, the property of my Order (KAos). $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ WARNING CONCERNING COPYRIGHT RESTRICTIONS The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material. Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of these specified conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be "used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research." If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of "fair use," that user may be liable for copyright infringement. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS First I'd like to thank the forefathers of this guide, Scott Yanoff, whose 'Special Internet Connections' I continue to use for reference, and Michael Strangelove, whose _Electric Mystic's Guide to the Internet..._ inspired this document's title and gave much seed data from which the first Version (1.0) was produced. Secondly, I'd like to thank all of the many wonderful reference contacts who make up this Mage's Guide. Most have been very patient with my last- minute screams for tiny bits of addresses, forgotten questions, lost files, etc. Among those who provided repeated resource were Bruce Dienes, who gave me the push I needed with Listserv; Dean Edwards, who gave me inside information on many different email lists, and T. Matthew Ciolek, who masterminds a mammoth Asian reference without which the Internet would seem almost barren. I'd also mention the valiant efforts of Peggy Brown and Andrew Haigh. Peggy is my Mistress and a Networker Supreme. Andrew worked quite hard on a complete, annotated listing of the 'Slopoke' FTP Occult files and I ended up not using them, even though I'd requested that he rush to completion. I hope that his document is utilized and very often, since it is a badly needed map of a dense file site. Lastly but certainly not least I am most truly grateful to my Abyss, Lisa Karpinski, who supported me through the labors, and Kali, whose strength and wisdom I have never known to fail. Aum Mahakali! ????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????
