:?: How did you get into magic?
Friends in high school started buying all of the books they could after seeing The Craft. Out of curiosity I started reading to, and kept reading after those high school friends all fell back out of it. During college in NYC I got some more formal training from the "Pagan Way Grove," a 6 month series of classes (sadly over) taught by a Thelemic Wiccan coven at the shop Enchantments (before it moved).

:?: What do you practice now, and for how long?
"Eclectic Neo Paganism Cottage Witch"- offerings/supplecations to patron deities and spirits, candle magic, crystals, sewing, jewelry, embroidery, and other mundane craftwork. In this manner for about 13 years. If we're going back to my high school experimentation then over 20 years.

:?: Will your current practice or religion interfere with you learning omnimancy?
Nope

:?: How did you find us?
Went to Crucible 2017 and sat in on the Omnimancy lecture, and then hung out with more Omni's at the after parties. A few members helped me over the next few weeks to dislodge a problem with an uninvited entity that was hurting me.

:?: Have you read the site yet?
Yes.

:?: What do you think omnimancy is?
A magical path that separates magic from religious doctrine/myth, so that it can be studied and developed in a more evidence-based manner.

:?: What do you hope to get out of Omnimancy and what are your end goals?
I have a chronic illness with no official medical treatment (and very little $ goes towards studying it), so I'm hoping to learn to be able to heal and/or maintain what's left of my body and bodily systems via this evidence based energy work. Right now I'm only really able to do magical workings for what I call "medical luck" as I continue looking for mundane medical practitioners + new research to help my illness. If i can get my health better managed, then I can try to repair the damage it's done to the rest of my life (career, creative, etc).

:?: Omnimancy training is a long process, are you willing to put the time in? (Which for OmniCyber means being able to show up on IRC on Monday Nights weekly reliably, as well as practicing on your own time or with other students.)
Yes.

:?: Can you work ok with others?
Yes.

:?: Because it's the internet, how old are you?

 How did you get into magic?
I have been interested/dabbling in the occult or occult related topics for pretty much most of my life. I was a dabbler with chaos magick when I was a teenager. I got back into occultism through qi gong/meditation and ended up joining the loneman pai internet lodge, and worked with that group for four months.

 What do you practice now, and for how long?
Currently I’m just doing yoga/basic breath-work techniques and exploring the energy pathways in my body. Also some energy-packing and pore breathing. I have been practicing these for maybe 7 or 8 months.

 Will your current practice or religion interfere with you learning omnimancy?
No. I have no religious affiliations. I prefer to keep a scientific attitude towards occult matters.

 How did you find us?
I was told that this group might be of interest to me by Frater V.F of the cognitioneum aeternae discord server.

 Have you read the site yet?
A small amount. I have been impressed so far. I will probably have dived in much further by the time this message is replied too.

 What do you think omnimancy is?
I’m honestly not that sure. I’ve been told the members here are adept at creating constructs. I seems to be a blend of psionics/energy work and magick with an evidence based/scientific approach. It has a surgical feel to it so far.

 What do you hope to get out of Omnimancy and what are your end goals?
I plan to continue trying to develop myself and all my attributes and abilities to their full potential. I hope that the Omnimancy system can help me to achieve this.

 Omnimancy training is a long process, are you willing to put the time in? (Which for OmniCyber means being able to show up on IRC on Monday Nights weekly reliably, as well as practicing on your own time or with other students.)
Yes. I have two – three hours a day to put into occultism, not including physical practices such as yoga, or weightlifting.

 Can you work ok with others?
Yes. However I am not interested in joining a cult, or a hierarchical lodge structure.

 Because it's the internet, how old are you?
Almost 21

:?: How did you get into magic?
I wasn't introduced to magick by anyone I knew, nor did I have any spiritual or paranormal experiences that brought me to study magic, instead I dove right into magic because of a personal event that took me a while to move on from. This was back in mid 2015 to early 2016.I have put a lot of time in the past into studying magic and reading all public information avaliable on the Omni site and forums, however for 2018 I have been focusing more on making myself ready and maturing as a person, so magic has been put on hold for the most part to focus more on other things.

:?: What do you practice now, and for how long?
I was taught for a month or so by a magician on wizardforums going by the username of Sevarn however after that I've been entirely self-taught and have done my best to go off of what public information I've read here on the public forums. I have fallen into a lot of pitfalls while I have been on this path however I have somehow or another always been lead right again (either by my innerself, or my higher guardian angel, or more probably a bit of both); Many times LordArt has also given me advice or his honest opinion on things, which has also contributed greatly to getting me back on the right path again.


:?: Will your current practice or religion interfere with you learning omnimancy?
Me being self-taught with magic has for the most part had more benefits than negatives, I have been free from the dogma and the political drama that being in a magical order brings, however I have also fallen into pits that I wouldn't have if I had a mentor or a group with people more knowledgeable than me that I could get advice from; Research has also been difficult and I have spent a lot of time in the past on research that bore no fruit. I don't think me being on my own with magic for 3 years was a negative thing, yet I realize that now is the time if possible to join Omnimancy and really make progress with magic.

:?: How did you find us?
I can't remember but I think it may have been Sevarn who mentioned Omnimancy to me. I found Omnimancy sometime in mid 2015, and have a terrible memory and so am unsure. In more general terms I suspect it was my inner (Omni term for inner, not standard magic one) who nudged me in the direction of this site.

:?: Have you read the site yet?
I have read all the public stuff on the main site, and as many of the relevant forums posts as possible (Beginners guide to tech, astral biology, etc) countless times in all actuality, however to be honest I haven't read any of the public stuff on the main site or forum posts for a long time. I felt magic was interferring with my day to day life, so I spent less time on it in 2018 compared to previous years. The public information here has been exceptionally useful for me in the past and from the bits and pieces I am able to glean, if Omni public information is this good, it must be 1000 times better in the group itself. To put how much I've read from the forums into perspective, I watched Titan A.E once or twice cause LordArt mentioned that a certain part of the movie gave him an ephiphany that led him to discover the G7 amp.

:?: What do you think omnimancy is?
Omnimancy is a meta-magick system which applies the scientific method to find the underlying principles and laws behind magick. This is done primarily through observation and experimentation, and I also imagine a great deal of sharing results with other Omni's and getting them to verify experiments and other things. Omnimancy relies primarily on tech (technology, technique and tech materials) which most magicians could compare to psionic constructs or even astral circuit boards of some sort. Psionic constructs are extremely limited in both utility and power compared to tech spells because tech spells are made from parts that are made from astral materials, whereas constructs are made from parts that are just made from energy. Then the study of things like astral biology and dimensional physics furthers the research and utility of tech, as well as of the Omni knowledge base. I saw a handful of tech materials when I was researching my first ever real tech spell shown to me by my inner, and I had raw proof of the immense possibilites that tech spells possess compared to psionic constructs.

:?: What do you hope to get out of Omnimancy and what are your end goals?
It's taken me a lot of time to slowly piece together what it actually is that I want out of Omnimancy. In this life I have tried to go against the flow of society, I have also strived my hardest to achieve goals that were of personal significance to me but were unrealistic; I failed in my pursuit of those goals over and over again (often miserably) and the only thing people can say about me is that my life path has been different from others. However as LordArt said a few years ago, not conforming isn't enough. I do not have the personality traits requisite for me to start my own magic group and to start researching tech essentially from scratch, and if I was to try to do so it would end up going nowhere again. Yet I really enjoy doing magick, not the ceremonial part of it, but the nitty gritty part of trying out different things on the astral realm and doing hours of fruitless research in the hopes of finding that one breakthrough that makes everything worthwhile again. If I was able to spend time pushing the boundary with the possibilities of magic, and having the means to try out different random ideas in my head for tech spells, as well as the ability to contantly progress within the group and stretch my capabilities then I would have achieved most of what I want out of Omni. There are other things I want like getting 2 of my friends to join later on, since I feel they would make good magicians but all I can do is show them the possibilities of magic once I become an Omni (if I am given permission to). There were other things I wanted to achieve in the past but I have had to let them go as part of my maturation process.

:?: Omnimancy training is a long process, are you willing to put the time in? (Which for OmniCyber means being able to show up on IRC on Monday Nights weekly reliably, as well as practicing on your own time or with other students.)
Yes, I am. As far as I can tell the time OmniCyber is on lines up fine even though there is a massive timezone difference. I am prepared to practice a lot for Omnimancy so I doubt the amount of practice I do will be an issue.

:?: Can you work ok with others?
I would say so, I have a close group of friends and family so I wouldn't say I lack the capacity to work with others. Working "ok" and working well are two different things and I am humble enough to realize I could always be so much better.

:?: Because it's the internet, how old are you?
I am 18, however I will be 19 soon.

:?: How did you get into magic?
My parents are Kardecian Spiritists so, while I wouldn't call it "magic", I grew knowing that there's more to the world than the eyes can see. When I was 14 years old I started having involuntary experiences outside of the body, and since I couldn't find answers to what I was experiencing inside Spiritism I was compelled to research outside.

I know Spiritism is not widely known so I'll give a few lines so you can understand my background. Allan Kardec compiled information gathered from 1800s mediums around the globe and did a lot of research on the communications between this world and what he called the "Spirit World". Kardec himself came from Christian beliefs so there's a lot of that mixed in, but the core beliefs are that we are immortal souls who evolve through the process of reincarnation. We are built up from numerous experiences and while we each evolve individually, the law of cause and effect (very similar with the concept of karma) propels us to work united for the common good. Also there's the metaphor that the Earth is a school/prison/hospital where some come to learn, pay their dues and heal the damage they might have suffered, but our real life is out there. I suppose that should be enough information for now and if anyone would be curious to know more, Kardec's books can easily be found on the Internet. I'll also answer questions if anyone asks me but I do not wish to evangelize anyone and that's not why I'm here.

:?: What do you practice now, and for how long?
I have studied Spiritism all my life and Conscientiology for a couple of years (which was created by an ex-spiritist who did not condone with certain flaws he observed in the previously mentioned). I've also studied some independent psionics and astral travel methods since I was 14, however actual experiences with those were few and far between.

:?: Will your current practice or religion interfere with you learning omnimancy?
Not at all. I know that thoughtforms or magical constructs or astral mechanisms or whatever one wishes to call them are very real things. What will interfere or not with me using them will be only my own capabilities.

:?: How did you find us?
I've heard about it from a friend who also wishes to join.

:?: Have you read the site yet?
Yes.

:?: What do you think omnimancy is?
What I've understood is that Omnimancy is the study of extraphysical mechanisms, tools, materials and resources and the means of building, assembling, forming and applying them for a variety of purposes.

:?: What do you hope to get out of Omnimancy and what are your end goals?
My goal is to grow spiritually, and be as productive and efficient as I can in helping and aiding the progress of humanity, and while I know that I'm just a drop in the ocean, I'll do my best at that. I believe that Omnimancy can potentialize the powers that I need on this task.

:?: Omnimancy training is a long process, are you willing to put the time in? (Which for OmniCyber means being able to show up on IRC on Monday Nights weekly reliably, as well as practicing on your own time or with other students.)
Yes.

Yes.

How did you get into magic?

In a nutshell, things kept happening around me, usually when I would become emotional. I started my spiritual journey when religion couldn't/wouldn't answer my questions.

What do you practice now, and for how long?

I have been an informal student of the O'Dea Foundation and following their tradition for roughly 2 years now. Otherwise, freelance study for the past 12

ill your current practice or religion interfere with you learning omnimancy?

No


How did you find us?

Rene advised me of the group about a month into my start with current tradition, I tried to apply last year but I was too late I believe. Current student Jeremy advised me that applications were being accepted.

Have you read the site yet?

Yes

What do you think omnimancy is?

Omnimancy, in my understanding is a study of magic and how it works, as well as utilization of multiple techniques to do the same thing. If you add A+B+C to = D, you can combine A and B to simplify and do the same thing.

What do you hope to get out of Omnimancy and what are your end goals?

I hope to get in better touch with my higher self. I feel if I can do that, I can become more in control of myself and not be influenced by others energies easily. In essence, better myself so I can help better others.

Omnimancy training is a long process, are you willing to put the time in? (Which for OmniCyber means being able to show up on IRC on Monday Nights weekly reliably, as well as practicing on your own time or with other students.)

As of right now, yes. I do go to electrical school currently Monday nights, and USUALLY get out by 7:30/8, which gives me an hour before it starts. (I was advised it's at 9 o'clock my time)

Can you work ok with others?

Overall yes. I am however highly affected by others energy, which again, I am looking to get a grip on.

Because it's the internet, how old are you?

:?: How did you get into magic?
Kind of hard to remember that now. I had a range of psychic, mystical, and "synchronistic" experiences through my early life, which I mostly wrote off or ignored. I suppose my active pursuit of these matters started when I was reading a book on buddhist meditation by an author I respected, who mentioned, somewhat off-handedly, that magic abilities are real. This was immediately something I wanted to puruse, and so it began.

:?: What do you practice now, and for how long?
Tibetan Buddhism. I have been involved in buddhist things for at least 15 years, and with this particular tradition for at least 3 years.

:?: Will your current practice or religion interfere with you learning omnimancy?
Not at all.

:?: How did you find us?
I'm not sure now. I've been aware of you for a few years. It may have been a passing mention by Jason Miller.


:?: Have you read the site yet?
Yes.

:?: What do you think omnimancy is?
Omnimancy is basically a pragmatic, science-and-technology model for working with magic. Within that model, it sees itself as reverse engineering the black box elements of other magical systems in order to be able to apply their principles in a way more precisely aligned with the operator's intentions. It could be likened to a particularly refined form of psionics, in that it is based on using the the mind to actively structure, program, and manipulate psychic energy.

:?: What do you hope to get out of Omnimancy and what are your end goals?
The idea of an end goal is a bit foreign to me. The only possible end goal would have to be something impossibly far-flung and utopian, such as establishing the reign of philosopher kings over the world and raising all beings to their level. For the most part I am just going along pursuing my interests and continuing to develop my skills. That said, the possibility of magical bio-hacking, alluded to in several places on the website, is particularly intriguing to me.

:?: Omnimancy training is a long process, are you willing to put the time in? (Which for OmniCyber means being able to show up on IRC on Monday Nights weekly reliably, as well as practicing on your own time or with other students.)
Absolutely. I'm quite dedicated and hard working, and this kind of stuff is my passion.

:?: Can you work ok with others?
Yes. People seems to find me to be a pretty likeable individual.

:?: Because it's the internet, how old are you?
