[We] like to consider the hundreds of interconnected Gopher servers to
be one large distributed entity; thus, we speak of "the Gopher", with
its many small parts, spread throughout the Internet. The Gopher is
always growing, always changing. It's everywhere, but you can't locate
it; it's always there, but you can't see it. ... The Gopher is the
largest and most practical example of applied pantheism in the history
of mankind.
                 -- Hahn; Stout. The Internet Complete Reference (1994)
