    • Jedi Hangout Day-Saturday, August 2nd (Last post by Joe)
    • I'll probably not make it, and if so, only for a few hours between 1430 and 1700 Deutschzeit (no, that isn't a word (yet).). Maybe i'll catch someone besides the usual suspects this time. *stares at Gisteron*
    • Book of Sith - what do you think? (Last post by Kamizu)
    • Is this the book you're talkin' about? www.amazon.com/Star-Wars-Book-Daniel-Wal...rds=book+of+the+sith It's been out for a year XD We have it, I've poked through it, my husband has read all of it. It's fiction. Could someone take inspiration from it? Sure. Same as I took inspiration from many fictional heroes growing up (and still do). Although if it's anything like the Jedi version (I've read further into that one) There are tiny bits and pieces of the Book for the Sith that can be utilized in life. The Jedi one talks more about lightsaber combat, life in the Temple, equipment, force sensitive animals, beings you can meet on your travels, and talk about your future as a Padawan, than it has talk about the tenants. There is a small portion about the philosophy but it's really written for the young adult as fiction. And it's a very interesting view into the daily life of a Jedi student at the Temple. But the Sith book is not at all intended as a manual on 'how to be a Dark Lord in real life'. Even if someone did something and stated that book was their inspiration, they either need to be held accountable for their actions and/or diagnosed and treated as mentally ill because they can't separate fact from fiction. Just like anybody who blames video games or TV for their violence. BTW, these books look awesome next to our lightsaber lamps on our nightstands :D

    • What Do We Mean By "Order"? (Last post by rugadd)
    • Whether I am Knighted or not remains to be seen. This fish is having a hard time climbing the tree with the rest of the squirrels. But the ideal of a Knight of the Order is something I try to exemplify as well as I am able everyday. So from that perspective, perhaps I should share briefly what that means. Be your best. See the best in others. Pretty simple.
    • What Do We Mean By "Temple"? (Last post by Luthien)
    • Historically, temples are places of worship where one may grow closer/stronger to the thing/idea they worship. Another definition of "temple", which I typically use, is something of special importance and attendance (e.g. my body is my temple, etc.). So, what does one do in a temple with these two given definitions? Contemplate. Con-templ-ate. To look at something on all sides or in all its aspects; to view or consider with continued attention; to regard with deliberate care; to study, ponder, or consider. This is what I see, most of the time: contemplation. It's a very Jedi concept, too. We contemplate in our temple. We consider different aspects of lots of things at a place that we hold as important and we carefully deliberate where we stand on an issue or idea. I agree that the "Temple" isn't just an idea, but is a part of our lives, both online and offline. If we're going to go that far, I consider the entire Universe to be my temple. :laugh:

    • The science of Rainbows (Last post by Senan)
    • :laugh: I can't even wrap my brain around this. Not the physics or biology of unicorns farting rainbows, but how a conversation like this begins in the first place. I just... can't. :laugh: Maybe we can make this an essay topic for the IP? :huh:
    • Cathedrals of Utopia (Last post by Alan)
    • Stones Rising is the name of the event which can be found at the church's web site 4qf.org. Each stone is raised by hand. Ropes and rollers, levers and blocks. There are few concessions to modern technology. Two stones a year. One time we raised three stones and it quite nearly 'killed' us. One year we raised one 14,000 pound stone. The shape of the 'circle' is elliptical and we raise the stones sequentially moving around the ellipse with each stone next to the previous. It would make a wonderful place to hold a Jedi Conference. The church property is 120+ acres and is a full camp with excellent facilities. Camping is preferred but there is a dorm, a full institutional kitchen, dining pavilion, comfort facilities (showers and toilets). A river runs through it. The Stone Circle is magical. [attachment]
