2.01. Sorcery is a spiritual science that encompasses the whole human being.
2.02. It involves knowing your own nature and the nature of the universe at large to bring about the change you want in your life.
2.03. This change is always under YOUR control, not under control of a deity or of any other being above the clouds.
2.04. Sorcerers know themselves to be gods, and they act accordingly.
2.05. This means that sorcery is not for the irresponsible, not for the weak.
2.06. Sorcerers do not worship any force in the universe.
2.07. They control it!
2.08. They do not bow to anything nor anyone!
2.09. Therefore, if you feel you need to lean on something, the Left Path and the Black Arts are not for you!
2.10. The sorcerers are the powerful, the proud, and the resourceful in the universe.
2.11. Therefor they are not religionists [sic] of any kind.
2.12. O.A.I. stands for Ordo Algolis Interstellaris vel Infernalis.
2.13. It is an interstellar order of black magicians that is older than mankind.
2.14. It is for the proud, the powerful, and the resourceful.
2.15. Algol symbolizes the principle of creative dynamics in the universe at the threshold of creation.
2.16. Structured deities that emanate from Algol take undeserved credit for some creation in the past.
2.17. Seeded by Algol, the O.A.I. was one of the most powerful dynamic and creative force in the human history.
