I appreciate you, Zenchi ...
But, we don't have a depth problem here either. Activity in any association of people waxes and wanes like the moons, rises and falls with the tides.
What good would it be for us to be constantly talking of the Force ? Or constantly prattling on about anything. Even without a ShoutBox, we get a box of shouting or box of murmuring ... it all comes back down to the equivalent of an ice-cream social. I still feel that the on-line nature of our community enhances our real lives (Real Life) rather than separating us from "real-life".
No bother screaming about what we get attached to either - and we all do get attached to the queerest things. Things change. So, instead of pretending to be all zen about it, why not have a howl ? At least it gets it "out there" and we would not be hiding a rumbling grunt under the verneer of fake serenity ...
Now can we really call mind2 a mind? It doesn't actually do any thinking, it's a mere model.
Which is how we should being mind1 as well, right?
Not thinking, not judging, just observing...
Does it really observe? If I make a robot, or more properly an android, and put a brain in it, but only a model of a brain, all the computer chips and motors being in the central cavity, does this brain observe?
The model of me, inside my head, might move and speak, but only as I see myself doing. The brain or mind in that model doesn't actually do anything.
You may perceive your brain or mind translating all those signals, from outside of your mind, but when I perceive my mind working, my brain translating signals from my eyes, translating signals from my brain to my mouth, I do it from my thought processing center, inside the same mind.
Your description of how you see your brain, are like looking into a glass box, holding a working model of the room you're in.
I have that same room, that same glass box, but all it is is a glass box.
If i want to see my thoughts I don't look into the box at my computer, I turn away from the box and look at my computer.
If I want to see my vision, I look at my tv, not into the glass box at the miniatures of the room.
Personally I think the courts should ask the younger girl, "did you at any time feel as though you were being taken advantage of," or something to that nature.
the thing is, because the girl was under 16, she was unfit to know whether she was being taken advantage of or not. that's the whole point of having a sexual majority (or any kind of majority actually): before majority, people are not considered to be capable of knowing for themselves.
I will publicly post them here...;)
We do not allow others to comment in journals because it gets in the way of the journal being checked...
A journal, as we use it here, is not really for discussion...
Threads have a way of going off track, and we hope to keep this to a minimum by restricting the posts to the bare minimum...
KNights and above, besides the journals owners, are all that is allowed to post in journals...EDIT: and even Knights and above, we ask for it to be done sparingly...;)
We delete comments without even reading them... And we have gotten messages from journal owners asking for comments from others to be removed, as well as 'thank you's from them when we beat them to the idea...
We cannot allow it in some, and not in others... The discrepancy causes even more work for our already overworked staff...
I have answered, what I thought were questions in journals, only to be told publicly, or via PM, that the question was rhetorical, and only there for the student to ask themself...
I hope this clears it up for you...:)
Any other questions, please feel free to ask....
Also, as this is not about 'Jediism', I have moved it...;)
Good luk, and carry on...:)
There are aproximately 33 thousand Christian demoninations
33 thousand protestant christian denominations, please keep that in mind that they are in fact protestant, in respect of me or any other Orthodox Christians.
holy crap. is that right? where did this figure come from? i didnt think there were that many Religions, much less sects of one.
Are there any Indigo Children in the Temple?
I am one and I lived with one (my best friend) for a long time. Now that we live in different states, its hard to connect with him like that again. Are there any here? Also, does anyone have any input, comments, ideas, etc. about the Indigo Children?
If you want to know more about it,

it is funny
also there are so many really crude jokes, and sometimes for me are funny, I can not be hypocrite, and be serious, and then enjoy it in private.
BUT... I understand what he say, if you visit another website, and you find an image, like OUR LOGO, with
jar jar doing poo on it... and it's trully our LOGO, and everybody enjoy that, and agree it's funny... What do you think????
just made it in a rush... (and maybe not funny, and more grotesque ) but.. think... if you find this in a Mormon forum.....
It's as if there's some type of "attendance quota" that we all have to "meet".
There isn't an attendance quota, right? :huh: :laugh:
Not one for you to worry about ;)
But when Teaching Masters are away for more than a week or two without letting anyone know, that's the same as if a teacher took a few weeks off school without telling anyone they weren't going to be coming in...
And the same as in any walk of life, when people take on positions of responsibility they are making a commitment to being there to actually fulfil the role that they have agreed to do. So whilst no-one is taking a register and checking that attendance doesn't drop below a certain percentage, it is my duty to be here and, when that is not possible, to ensure that you guys know what's going on and when I'll be back! :)
I have used so many usernames, things relating to old gods, things from different myths, things from D&D and other games, even names that are just random gobblings of letters that seem to fit together, and are pronounceable in English. I've always wanted a different name, a different life.
I never used my real name, because it isn't who I was, it was a name given by my father, because he wanted a little him, so he gave me his name, made me to learn his trade, and only allowed me to enjoy his enjoyments.
I have been soya since the middle of 2006, a group of friends didn't like the name I had chosen for myself, so they got together and gave me a new name, more indicative of my personality.
I still go by my real name in real life, I get asked if I made it up, or where it's from, what it means, why I changed my name (because it couldn't be something my parents gave me!), everything.
I am currently attempting to take my name, make it me, really get people to go "Oh, you're ***?" and not speak about my father.
In short, I use my username, because I do not feel a connection to my real name, but I'm trying to change that, and may change to my real name here, shortly, in the future.
