Constitution of The Temple of Loki

ABN 26 138 576 162

Written 12 December, 2004 by David Nicholas Vennik, Founding Member

Preamble

The name of the organisation is ‘The Temple of Loki’ hereafter referred to as TOL. It was founded by David Nicholas Vennik on the 23 of February, 2001.

Purpose

The TOL was founded to foster the development of a true knowledge of the nature of reality and to implement projects to this end. The TOL does not require its members to practice a particular form of religious or spiritual practice, but rather to develop their own unique systems, under the proviso that they accept and promote the primary goals of the TOL and follow the rules laid out in this constitution for decision making.

Organisational Structure and Decision Making Protocols

The TOL uses a system of delegation of authority that the TOL believe represents the most fair and democratic possible. No decisions can prevail except by consensus.

  1. Groups of 8 members choose, by consensus, a member who best represents the group.
  2. Groups must consist of members who are in regular communication, preferably daily, but no strict rule applies to this.
  3. Representatives from the groups form groups of the same form, which proceeds up the hierarchy.
  4. Groups may consist of smaller numbers than 8 if the hierarchy terminates at the group.
  5. All decisions made by groups must be made by consensus.
  6. No imperative is permitted to remove the veto power of a member over the decisions made by the group and propagated up the hierarchy by the representative member.
  7. The decisions must also be approved by consensus all the way to the top.
  8. Decisions do not need to be documented by the organisation, unless they involve financial decisions or official interactions with external organisations.
  9. If the actions of a member or group bring trouble upon the organisation they become exiled members, who may only be permitted to return to the organisation as full members when they properly redeem themselves, and the group they join decides by consensus that they may return. All groups, further up the hierarchy, must accept this decision as well.
  10. These rules cover all decisions made by the organisation, they are comprehensive enough that no major changes should be required to this document, however, any such decision for amendment shall also require consensus approval from all members.
