This version *supersedes* previous "editions"; they may safely be deleted
without loss of important information.

Warning: Despite the new format - classificiation of resorces by topic -
certain parts of this listing are in a chaotic state. This has to do with the
circumstances of its compilation. Basically, to access the net I have to sneak
into a university lab and telnet to one of my legitimate accounts. I have been
"caught" twice so far and so it's getting a little difficult to maintain the
volume of activity that I'd like to. I have my one opportunity to put things
on an ftp site coming up in a few hours and so I want to "get out" what
information I have *now*, in case I lose any form of access altogether.

The lIsted topics are:



In places I hav cannibalized both Scott Yanoff's listing of internet resources
[reproduced in full at the end] and a list of mailing lists which appeared on
news.lists, I think.

comments by Anon of Ibid:
* This site has lots of Crowley texts and gifs, including the
*complete* texts of the Book of Lies, Book of the Law, Book 4,
Magick in Theory and Practice, Magick Without Tears, and some
(or all) copies of the Equinox. (Crowley's magickal journal/
zine/publication type thing) All this stuff is in directory
/pub/magick/incoming. But there's lots more than Crowley stuff.
Check this site out.
[Back to me:]
Also worth perusing are wilson.on.cis, an online conference with RAWilson as
guest participant, and cybercraft, which contains an exposition of Leary's
8-circuit model. ALSO, copies of the Equinox are retailing where I live
for about $700 (for 10 vols.) at present. You could probably make yourself
same money, and do yourself a favor, and violate some sort of copyright law
by printing copies of the Equinox based on the slopoke material.
In fact the whole slopoke site is just one of the best. They have an old
alt.slack archive (old*slack!), extensive Notes on Kabbala that you won't
find anywhere else, the Principia, and *best of all*: in /pub/incoming they
have the up-to-date version of the Scriptures of V\R (see above). Praise


A historical document:

>From: [email protected] (T. Rev)
Newsgroups: alt.slack
Subject: Re: Timelines
Date: 5 Jun 89 00:42:01 GMT
Given that the SubGeniuses seem to have been corrupted and poisoned
by virtue of their long fight against the Conspiracy (e.g. $tang's 'selling
out', Bob Black's increasing spiritual violence, the martyrdom of St.
Reith, the slow disappearance of many of the church elders, and general
dissatisfaction in the ranks, as well as the predicted Age of the Crowned
and Conquering Bobbie), the time seems right for the appearance of another
mindless, soul-destroying cult. Since the Discordians came along in 1959,
and the Subs in 1979, 1989 would seem to be the next proper time for a
major cult (so that the geometric series will converge just _after_ the
supposed arrival of the X-ists (giving us needed slack time, of course)).
In this light, and for research purposes only, not for sale or
prescription at this time, I would like to ask of Mr. Parry a description
of his doctrine of 'Kibology'--a Kibologist Manifesto, as it were.
So, Mr. Parry, what say you?

NOTE: the material at these sites is exceedingly voluminous;
I'd strongly suggest just getting the CD-ROMs instead of attempting
to transfer scores of gigabytes of pix and other material.

In Robert Anton Wilson's _Illuminatus! Trilogy_, he describes
a process used by Discordians, Erisians and Anarchists against
governments, corporations and in general, The Establishment.
This process involves sending many letters from different
parts of the country/world and is called Operation Mindfuck.
With the advent of e-mail, Operation Mindfucks are much more
easily coordinated. One such network can be joined by e-mailing
[email protected] Networks are set up around
communal responsibility. Everyone agrees to participate in
everyone else's Mindfuck. If A helps B Fuck the IRS, then when
B wants to Fuck the Department of Defense, A is obliged to help.
Hail Eris! All Hail Discordia!

>From: The Saint of Self Abuse
I dunno if it counts but we have a really vocal, extreme right-wing
paranoid fundamentalist Christian who got a Bboard named after him out
here at CMU. He frequently posts more than four posts in a day and we
already have somebody at MIT mocking the guy and it may be a national
thing because this guy is 100% all-American Christian fundie right wing
Anyway, the Bboard is assocs.collegerepublicans.intolerant_assholes
@ and our "friend" is Dave Byler: db7n @
He may not be weird enough for this list, but he responds to
EVERYTHING and claims such things as:
1. There is an International Communist Conspiracy
2. Sen. Macarthy was right
3. Al Gore plans to save the earth by depopulating it
4. Liberalism = Nazism
5. You're all going to Hell
Maybe he is weird enough....

Contact: [email protected] (John Cowan)

Purpose: To use, discuss, and contribute to the development of the
constructed human language called Lojban (known in earlier
versions as Loglan). Lojban has a grammar based on predicate
logic, and vocabulary built from the six most widely spoken human
languages. It is intended as a tool for experimental linguistics,
as a medium for communication with computers, and as a possible
international auxiliary language.

Lojban-list is an unmoderated mail reflector. New subscribers are
asked to send their postal mailing addresses as well, so that they
can be placed on the mailing list of The Logical Language Group,
Inc., a non-profit organization. The postal mailing list provides
materials that are useful in learning about the language.
Lojban-list and LLG, Inc. are in no way affiliated with The Loglan
Institute, Inc., or with James Cooke Brown, the founder of Loglan.

Purpose: The discussion of the works and life of Philip K. Dick
(1928-1982), one of the world's most unusual science fiction writers.
Topics include his books and stories, and books and stories about him
and his life; however, discussion can (of necessity) branch out into
the nature of reality, consciousness and religious experience.

Purpose: The alife mailing list is for communications regarding
artificial life, a formative interdisciplinary field involving
computer science, the natural sciences, mathematics, medicine and
others. The recent book _Artificial Life_, Christopher Langton, ed.,
Addison Wesley, 1989 introduces the scope of artificial life as a field
of study. Alife was chartered in February 1990 at the Second Artificial
Life Workshop, held in Santa Fe & organized by the Center for Nonlinear
Studies at the Los Alamos National Laboratory and the Santa Fe
Institute. The list is intended primarily for low-volume, high-content
scientific correspondence and as a publically accessible forum for the
interested members of the public. Membership as of July 1990 includes
over 1,200 addresses on four continents. There is an FTP-accessible
archives/repository of past traffic, software and papers. The list
is maintained by the Artificial Life Research Group, Computer Science
Department, Lindley Hall 101, Indiana University Bloomington, IN 47405.
There are conditions on redistribution of the list in order to minimize
any misunderstanding or exaggeration concerning this new area of study.

[email protected] (not seen by me) - simulated annealng
Contact: [email protected] (Daniel R. Greening)

Purpose: Discussion of simulated annealing techniques and
analysis, as well as other related issues (stochastic
optimization, Boltzmann machines, metricity of NP-complete move
spaces, etc).

Membership is restricted to those doing active research in
simulated annealing or related areas. Current membership is
international, and about half of the members are published
authors. The list itself is unmoderated.

Purpose: Cryonic suspension is an experimental procedure whereby
patients who can no longer be kept alive with today's medical
abilities are preserved at low temperatures for treatment in the
future. This list is a forum for topics related to cryonics,
which include biochemistry of memory, low temperature biology,
legal status of cryonics and cryonically suspended people,
nanotechnology and cell repair machines, philosophy of identity,
mass media coverage of cryonics, new research and publications,
conferences, and local cryonics group meetings.

serious discussion of extropian/upwing ideas such as physical immortality,
anarchocapitalism, postindustrial society etc
Contact: [email protected]

Purpose: The unifying characteristic of the list recipients is
their latest interest in anarchocapitalist politics, techniques
of life extension (including cryonics), the technological extension
of human intelligence and perception, nanotechnology, spontaneous
orders, memetics, and a number of other related ideas. If these
topics seem to you to be naturally related and mutually consistent,
you might already be an Extropian.

via ftp from /coombspapers/interest-groups.9201.txt.
(There *has* to be something shorter available; ftp-by-mail and watch your
mailbox explode!) Some of the ones that follow aren't mentioned on that
list however. UPDATE: A more up-to-date version of this list can be
accessed via telnet through - select online
information, merit internet, other ifo servers, main gopher, ftp sites,
popular ftp, interest group lists [that's my paraphrase of the necessary
menu selections]. /pub/usenet hundreds of directories with all sorts
of things archived it seems, eg /news.answers has heaps of faqs,
/alt.drugs a few alt.drugs regular postings

NEWSPOSTING by mail - Once upon a time apparently, you could post

[this essay will be sent upon request]

Contact: [email protected] (Jovan Weismiller)

Purpose: This list is under the aegis of l'Alliance Monarchists
and is dedicated to promoting the cause of traditional monarchy
and the Counter Revolution. We believe in government based on
natural law principles, decentralization, subsidiarity, an economy
based on the principles of distributive justice, and the defense of
traditional Western values.

We believe in a Europe, United, Traditional, and Free from the
Atlantic to the Urals, but we oppose the centralizing bureaucracy
of the Maastricht treaty. While we are based in the US, we are
affiliated with L'Alliance pour la maintenance de la France en Europe,
and we have members, as well as fraternal relations with the monarchist
organizations, in most Western European countries.

We work for the strengthening of existing monarchies, the restoration
in those countries with a monarchist tradition, and the building up
of an infrastructure appropriate to the instuaration of monarchy in
those countries without a living monarchist tradition. JohnSwitzer's Rush Limbaugh summaries archived

myself (i have my hands full with what i'm getting over the net!!) but
some of the stuff reviewed looked really interesting. there's also reviews
of poetry chapbooks (?) (unseen) and future issues will include mailart
sections. [speaking of which, is there such a thing as internet mailart
yet?] send a request and luigi-bob will mail you with whatever he has.

Purpose: Dark Shadows was a daily soap opera that ran on ABC in
the late sixties (ending in 1971). It had a Gothic feel to it,
and featured storylines involving witchcraft, vampires, werewolves
and the supernatural. It was (appropriately enough) "brought back
from the dead" by NBC for a single season last year. It also
spawned two feature films, a series of paperback novels, and lots
more; the series is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year.
There are a number of international fan clubs for the series, but
so far there has been no newsgroup or (electronic) mailling list
devoted to it. Now there is.
