    • Just some advice from a current masters student who's in the process of applying to phd programs. At least in my field and most other fields that I know of your GRE scores are like the SAT scores of graduate school. Unless your field has a subject GRE test then it might be weighted more i.e. chemistry has a subject GRE test. They are more like a way of weeding people out since graduate schools receive far more applications then they can ever accept. They might make a small amount of difference for masters programs though, but not really for phd programs so much as long as you meet that programs minimum requirements. In most cases the general advice for getting into good phd programs is to get as much experience doing research as you can during your undergraduate program or masters program, have a great gpa here the standards of the school you went to really matters, and make sure you get fantastic letters of reference.
    • Best martial art? (Last post by OB1Shinobi)
    • duh i forgot karate lol some karate styles hold full contact competitions and any time people are allowed to knock each other unconscious the results are that people learn to knock people unconscious "karate" is perfectly fine as for self defense if you train to fight if you train to look cool then as long as you dont ever get in a fight youll be fine some of them are integrating grappling into their systems but none are really strong with this except for kenpo/kempo which may have aquired their locking and throwing techniques from aikijujutsu lyoto machida is a well know karate based fighter (i think kyukushin)

    • LuCrae's Question in Another Thread (Last post by OB1Shinobi)
    • Quote: I may not be popular in this regard, but I don't think the code is necessary. I very rarely think about it, preferring the creed myself. i think the code is backwards - it only makes sense once youve reached a point where youre able to translate it "there is no emotion, there is only peace" well when your dog eats your girl friend and runs off with your homework if you are anything like me then i think you are going to feel some emotion; my teacher didnt belive me and the cops didnt belive me and my parents were ashamed of me and all my SO CALLED friends laughed at me constantly certain experiences are just very difficult and "there is no emotion" would not have helped me maybe it has helped others, and if so i am glad i dont say it has NO value only that I personally think there are BETTER a code imo is supposed to give you direction in times of uncertainty i think this is a little better Emotion, yet peace. Ignorance, yet knowledge. Passion, yet serenity. Chaos, yet harmony. Death, yet the Force. at least i felt it does offer some reassurance and insight in life situations - BUT - like you say Eden, the CREED is better (in my opinion as well) HOWEVER! while the Creed is very good, is still not distinctly jedi (for those unfamiliar with "the prayer of st francis" www.catholic.org/prayers/prayer.php?p=134) wherever it began, this does give a real direction in most any circumstance, which is what codes and creeds are for it seems reasonable that an integral part of the JEDI WAY is to develop ones own code based on ones current best understanding of what works that doesnt mean we can never "standardize" it just means that the movement is still young and HOW to "standardize" without simultaneously stifling personal freedom is a big concern (rightly so)
    • a question about the value of human life (Last post by OB1Shinobi)
    • mom had an arterial bypass of the femoral artery and it was tense for a while - its a surgery with some risk she is home now the recovery takes a while but shes doing good so far thanks :-) about dictionaries; obviously i cant prove this but it was a little more than 15 yrs ago when i settled myself on the definition that i use and i referenced quite a few dictionaries in the process and more than one had a definition for the word which was essentially the same as i use here also a google will still get the following a pursuit or interest to which someone ascribes supreme importance. "consumerism is the new religion" something one believes in and follows devotedly; a point or matter of ethics or conscience: to make a religion of fighting prejudice. "natural religion" a religion validated on the basis of human reason and experience apart from miraculous or supernatural revelation; specifically : a religion that is universally discernible by all men through the use of human reason apart from any special revelation so there are dictionary precedents which offer enough interpretive freedom even now to make a case for the definition that i use also i think that it would elevate the quality of the discussion to free the word "religion" from the religious extremists i also think that once that happens, the perception that intellectual integrity requires one to completely separate oneself from any hint of religion will be lessened - which is good imo obviously i dont feel that religion and intelligence are mutually exclusive about this Gisteron: while it may be immediately beneficial to promote these ideas, there is always something dark about promoting things we don't know are indeed true; this is even more important when the promoted idea raises more questions than it answers. ---- i agree with this what i would say is that people look at "religion" and often see only the past - its not ENTIRELY INACCURATE to say that we are creating/generating/influecing or at least helping to create/generate/influence, contemporary religious thought RIGHT NOW every honest discussion that people have about the topic helps to do this, especially online if you think about it, totjo, the jedi movement, and other similar, budding movements, are on the cutting edge of the global religious development the ideas we come up with here WILL have significant cultural influence in the area of personal religious development, simply because of the intellectual and spiritual freedom and openness inherent to the jedi path now, i do belive that there are certain things which are "right" about being spiritually healthy and certain things which are "wrong" and that these have not changed much in the last 150-2000 thousand years - but its up to every generation to acknowledge these things and to promote them in its own language otherwise they stagnate into what many modern thinkers associate with the word "religion", namely crusades and jihads and superstitious ignorance i think its well enough established that we have to develop our own religions for ourselves in the course of our lives - but this doesnt really mean that we just make it up, rather that we have the experiences which open us up to the value of religious thought without latching on to them in a way that alters the path from one of personal growth into societal control but then also i think we DO have a responsibility, especially us personally as jedi, but also everyone who would stand at the forefront of thought in most any influential field, to be aware of the consequences of the ideas we promote to my way of thinking it is perfectly reasonable to advance a sort of "faithful optimism" about our value we dont have to claim certainty - but that not claiming certainty can go both ways and rather than being certain that we DONT have inherent value simply on the grounds that we havent proven otherwise, we can hold out on the idea that the puzzle is still bigger than our eyes and that it JUST MIGHT BE REALLY AWESOME in a way that can best be described as "divine" and that JUST THE POSSIBILITY that this is so is enough to convince us to take care of it a best as we can i think thats the best articulation im going to come up with of my view at the moment
    • The Grateful Thread (Last post by Calem)
    • I am grateful for my mother giving me place to stay a little while until my new apartment's ready for me to move into and grateful for the fuzzy furball dog which rolls over for cuddles every time I come near. There's nothing like an animal to stop time while making it pass unnoticed :)
