B. The OMNet - Foundation Document

C. Divination Web II - Information



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 (

B. The OMNet - Foundation Document

OMNet, the Occult and Mysticism Network

_Foundation Document_, dated 940320 (Equinox)


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.


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.


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).


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.


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.

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.

Responsibility and roles of individual members beyond that outlined above

The _only_ Mu* dedicated to occult and spiritual interests.
Not only are there cool people to meet there, but you can:

* - network and play in the medium of a nifty TinyMuck (with variant FB code!)

* - construct your favorite symbol-system (and walk through it afterwards!)

* - build an esoteric text-visualization (perfect for instruction/practice!)


* - experiment with such things as cyber-ritual and cyber-religion.

Drop by and check it out.  Contact the email address below for additional
information regarding building and programming.  After you've connected
and created a character, type 'notices' and read what others have to say.

No compensation has been required for creating this publication.
It was, unless otherwise indicated, entirely my construction and is, 
as are all of my generatons, the property of my Order (KAos).



The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code)
governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted

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

liable for copyright infringement.



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!
