I would like to meet my distant relative who fought in the Civil War and was captured by the South...once released they shipped him off to serve at Fort Caspar where he died of malnutrition. How sucky would that be?
Living...I would like to meet Chris Angel and ask him how he looks so young!!! I mean, whatever he does it works well and I wanna know. :P
We all know, violence it's at last end
we need to know also violence exist
hope never happen, but we all can be pushed to use violence
there is always a way to push other to use.
so, now the real question, when happen, and it's time for us to defend ourself, or someone else
what we use
by self defense law, never a weapon bigger in power than your opponent.
to me, use what I need to end up safe in fast and secure way, if that can be accomplish taking in mind my local laws BETTER
lightsabers don't exist, so are not an option
o whatever we use is up to the moment, there is no way to know (can be in the bathroom, when you take a shower, and your best weapon can be your shampoo and a towel)
you can carry a baton (if is legal) or a stunt baton, or whatever.
lightsabers don't exist, can look like, but doesn't work.
your surrounding can provide weapons.... you can be the weapon...
One has to remember, there is no such thing as good or evil, its all about power.
I think you may have misunderstood the intention of my ramblings MurMur, this was never about God as a deity it was my way of breaking down the differences between the ego brain and true consciousness.
I chose to use the mythology as a method of explaining the internal conflict and the transcendence of it.
I think the word "god" leaves a bitter taste in most people's mouths, but in this case, "god" is a word meaning your own, personal "higher self", not a religious god.
Thank you Master, I suppose the use of the term "GOD" is very much misrepresented at times, as you have stated what I meant by god is the part of you that is "GOD" (the force), whether the god is good or evil is irrelevant, it still created the ego self and as such is the true spirit and driving force behind the illusion of what we are.
Though I also suppose that in using the word god I was talking about the mythical concept of a god that is there for our fragile ego to grasp upon until true enlightenment comes through mythological translation of the holy scriptures.
Even though in the early years of my life i was raised a Christian, i could never take the Bible seriously. In my mind there were some good lessons yes but a lot of what i heard stood out as being no different from the fairy tales my mum and dad told me when i was small. Noahs ark for example or Moses parting the Red Sea..
One must bare in mind that while the Bible is in places trying to give a moral lesson (perhaps not in the most straightforward way) large tracts of it, the Old Testament in particular was written at a time when people still believed the Sun was a man in a chariot flying across the sky or thunder was an expression of the gods anger. Much of it was mans early attempts to explain and educate people on how the world and nature worked and even came into being when infact they had no proof. Indeed, even today, we still largely lack a lot of proof for much of this. While there are SOME lessons to be learned, much of it is pure myth. I cannot treat the story of Genesis any more seriously than the story of the Norse creation myth, how the first gods came out of a giants armpit.
Shadow beings are those people or entities who are still here in our plane of existence. People do not understand that just because the body dies does not mean that that person is non-existent. Shadow people are just energy in a form that we are not aware of or that we can fully comprehend. I have seen shadow people and have had multiple experiences obtaining to shadow people. Not all shadow people are people who can not move on to the next plain of existence. Some of entities who are here for reasons only they know of, if they even know.
Death is nothing but a phase in the existence of life.

trying to seperate myself from the previous frustration of impatience that I had when I posted the original post here, the bible is mainly a story book (Old testament), a book with great poetry and symbolism, with beautiful stories and lessons to be learnt, when it isn't a story, it is an abstract form of philosophy or meaning that is supposed to teach you a lesson every time you read it.
I am not arguing against the bible, but like philosophy, I was arguing against the reactions of:
- Claiming the Bible is pure divine text ( sometimes the claim of "only divine text")
- Taking every single word of the Bible as truth or literal meaning
both reactions don't hold true to the original meaning or motivation of the Bible.
Do you enjoy "light comedy" too?
Ya know, slapstick, silly stuff?
Think that makes you "light"?
oh boy, do I!
if people think slapstick is lame and stupid

A comparison i typically use in the Star Wars online roleplaying community i am a part of is to take the colour purple. It is after all a single colour but we of course know that is is made of two different colours, blue and red. It is through either calm, peaceful communion or the use of raw emotion and passion that either one of these sides or colours can then be distinguished and as such felt and communed with.
Sometimes I feel like the dichotomy of light and dark is akin to a black and white TV versus a color TV, and it leaves me wondering 'what about the colors!!!'. Purple is almost like an energetic grey in that way.
Of course the dichotomy is not of these things, but what they represent. Still, I was looking at the color spectrum and cannot help but think red at one end and purple at the other are very different from light versus dark (with are very much poles apart).... since purple is a combination of the antipole red, plus blue!
So I like to see red as standing for passion/sacrifice and at the other end the purple color really is a clash between that red and blue, ie conflict. It could make more sense for purple to represent conflict as it does actual show a higher energy state. So then going all Star Wars (sorry Zenchi) red blades could represent a call for victims to sacrifice on the Sith blade, while blue a call to conflict so it can be settled best by the Jedi way together with green as protective and harmonious midpoint.
In which case a color Force dichotomy could be passion/red/giving of oneself to a cause, versus conflict/purple/exhausting resources through competition for a cause. It also aligns well with blood, red is fresh and oxygenated ready for use, while purple is rare and causes tension around it. One of the things I like about dichotomies is that by having two points they automatically create a midpoint. So in this regard I feel like the color version of grey might not be purple like I first thought, but instead green!
