If you mean the audios for Joe Campbell and such...

They are in the front page of the site, as well as in the library...

Does that help?
Rite: PureLand
Master: Master Jasper_Ward
Apprentices: Knight Learn_To_Know, Viskhard, DanWerts, Elizabeth, Edan

Yes, Thank you

You can find everything you need under the "Studies" tab at the top right of the website, next to the "Home" tab and the "My Totjo" tab. There, the initiate's program is outlined in great detail, and you can begin at any time, as well as take as much time as you need to complete these assignments.

Good luck!

    • QUANTUM CHESHIRE CAT PHENOMENON OBSERVED FOR FIRST TIME Quantum mechanics is so weird, people often resort to Alice in Wonderland metaphors to explain it. Particle physicists have now gone one better, actually creating particles modeled on Lewis Carroll’s Cheshire Cat. The famous puss slowly disappeared leaving its grin behind, prompting Alice to say, "Well! I've often seen a cat without a grin, but a grin without a cat! It's the most curious thing I ever saw in my life!" In Nature Communications this week, a team led by Tobias Denkmayr, a PhD student at the Vienna University of Technology announced something even physicists might call "curiouser and curiouser"; success in separating properties from the particles that normally possess them. In this case the particles were neutrons. The property was magnetic moment, the extent to which an object is susceptible to rotation by an external magnetic field. Although, as their name suggests, neutrons have no net electric charge, they do have a well established magnetic moments of - 0.97x10-26 JT-1, produced by an internal structure of one up and two down quarks. The negative sign is an indication of the neutrons align in the opposite direction to a magnetic field. In the classical world we are familiar with the idea that a property like magnetic moment cannot be separated from its object – it would be like taking the taste away from a chocolate bar so that the bar produced no sensation on the tongue, but a disembodied taste could be detected somewhere quite distinct. However, things work differently in the world of the very small. In the 1990s, Professor Yakir Aharonov of Tel Aviv University proposed the properties could indeed be detached from particles (his book explaining it is delightfully subtitled Quantum Theory for the Perplexed). The idea develops on Schredinger’s famous feline thought-experiment. However, instead of ending up with a live and dead cat, you have a cat without its properties, and properties without the cat. The naming after Carroll’s Cheshire moggy was inevitable. The idea of Cheshire cat particles has become a topic for an increasing number of papers in the last few years, but these have generally been about theory – just as no one actually puts Felis catus in boxes with poison vial and radioactive sources, for all the papers discussing what would happen if you did. Denkmayr and his co-authors, however, temporarily removed the magnetic moment from the neutrons using an interferometer. They used a silicon crystal to split a neutron beam and reported, “The experimental results suggest that the system behaves as if the neutrons go through one beam path, while their magnetic moment travels along the other.” The beams were then reunited, leaving no disembodied magnetic moments prowling the universe. The absence of moment from the neutrons was established by testing their spin in a magnetic field using Aharonov's concept of "weak measurement" which allows observations to take place without disturbing the system as usually occurs in quantum circumstances. The authors note, “The investigation of Schrödinger cats advanced the field of quantum information processing and communication.” They suggest the work could be useful in “a situation in which the magnetic moment of a particle overshadows another of the particle’s properties which one wants to measure very precisely. The Cheshire Cat effect might lead to a technology which allows one to separate the unwanted magnetic moment to a region where it causes no disturbance to the high-precision measurement of the other property.” Read more at
    • Why I Believe in god(s) (Last post by Khaos)
    • Quote: The normal athiest response to this question is one of two things. I don't know I find this is the most accurate and honest answer really. It takes alot of humility to say I dont know. However, that doesnt mean we wont ever know, or cant know. We didnt know alot of things at one point. Still, that does not give credence to the "God of the gaps", as that is a receding shore of faith.
    • Cathedrals of Utopia (Last post by Learn_To_Know)
    • This is a topic that's been on my mind for years now. I've found that any peace and calm I've found in man-made structures was exceeded by being out hiking or in the mountains. Trouble is, I'm a few hours from the cool of the mountains and it would be nice to have a beautiful structure, cathedral/temple or monument close by that I can visit and meditate in. I do like rugadds idea about a library and since I carry my Kindle with me almost everywhere I guess I should just find the shade of a tree in a park and I'll always have the temple with me. :)

    • People Killing Each Other (Last post by Karn)
    • There is a lot of stuff going on, yes there is a lot of killing happening around the globe. Just remember, media sells ratings by such "news". Take what you hear, but I always do some research and try to get more than what the media is feeding us. Just like at accident scenes, it would appear that humans love to gawk. Which increases ratings for the media. There is a lot of good going on out there, it just does not make the news as often. There is hope.

    • I've lost too many. Hang in there! If you were the one that passed on what would you want for those you left behind? I wouldn't want folks to grieve for very long, to be happy, to live life fully and to love. My thoughts are with you. Peace
    • What form(s) of magic(k) do you practice? (Last post by Zenchi)
    • I have found one of the biggest personal downsides of tredding the darker avenues such as the Left Hand Path, is that without proper will training, the ego takes hold ands creates inner chaos that ultimately manifests in the practitioner's personal life. The will must be broken down, and then built up only to repeat the process. It is not a path for the mentally ill, or weak as it all too often unlocks hidden atravisms within the individuals subconscious mind...

    • Quote: I would love to build my own lightsaber, I just don't even know where to start. I'm sure I could do it I just need to do some research on them. Start with a sketch of what you want, then visit the hardware store (lowe's or home depot have a large selection of parts)look for parts that closely resemble what you want, then go to can also visit some sabersmith sites for ideas and browse the forums here for some of the saber pics already posted...even the internal electronics are fairly simple, just requires a bit of planning beforehand so you don't wire an internal switch externally :lol:
