    • Being Paid to Volunteer, Is it Legit or Not? (Last post by Jestor)
    • Quote: What if volunteering is the act of stealing someone else's job? Seldom is the volunteer of the same caliber of the paid employee... By using volunteers, you have to treat the differently, because most people have the "well I'm not getting paid for this" mentality, so if you are not happy with them socializing, or their crappy performance, your stuck... They used volunteers to save cost at our fourth of July parade for the last two years... This year, they brought us paid employees back... The first year, prescription meds went missing (co-worker had a few pain pills for his back and knees) equipment messed up/broke, used wrong, blah, blah... Although they paid me to work, what they paid for was my level of service and knowledge... I didn't have to work, I did "volunteer" to work, but for pay... I do "volunteer" to do free volunteer stuff, but, they get what they pay for, lol.... I try to stay busy, on task... But I'm something of a talker, :lol:...
    • The True Temple (Last post by Jestor)
    • Quote: perhaps the temple we're looking for isn't OUT THERE, so much as it is IN HERE. Inside us all. lol... Correct..;) I will agree with that statement....
    • Terra Prime Temple Learners (Last post by Mareeka)
    • Interesting, Form 3 is a version of Form 6 and Form 1 is like a maxed zoom of the upper parts scattered on the table. So like the Kabbalah where branches hang down from the roots the systems like Jedi, or martial arts, or training materials may appear to be different. What if I can't see the saber does that mean it doesn't exist?
    • Lightsabers Anonymous (Last post by CryojenX)
    • Let me just say that not only did I use VERY poor judgement making that video when I've been so ill... I honestly don't think I used any judgement at all. :dry:
    • The Grateful Thread (Last post by Edan)
    • I am grateful to psychology for helping me understand children. It sounds like such a silly thing but I've never been able to connect with or understand them. I may only be able to look at them now from a developmental point of view, but now I get why they do stuff which doesn't make me any better with them, but now I don't find them quite as strange.
    • Scientists Create Holograms you can Touch (Last post by Gisteron)
    • Quote: ... I would just like comment to Ren, that to let you know [sic] a Holosuite is nearly possible. Actually, no, it isn't... The thing about holosuites is that they project matter, or at least solidity, into space. The extent to which that is possible in theory (and that is nowhere near the extent seen in Star Trek) is dwarfed by the extent to which it is not feasible in practice (there is only so much energy at our disposal). Interactive, virtual, audio-visual environments are fine though. That's about as far as holograms (and audio playback) go, and everything else is something else.

    • Free online course: Making Sense of Climate Change... (Last post by Streen)
    • What I find that most people aren't comprehending is that climate change could very well be cyclical. Just because temperatures are rising doesn't mean they are going in one linear direction. If there's one thing I've learned about this planet and the solar system is that everything happens in cycles. I'm not confirming or denying climate change, just that change in general usually balances itself out.
    • Light bubbles dont work (Last post by OB1Shinobi)
    • Quote: Quote: ....you can effectively negate a sound wave by producing an inverse sound wave that is otherwise identical. The phase shift uses a trough to cancel a crest and vice versa, effectively producing silence instead. this actually did register with me i would still say that to my way of thinkng, the "inverse sound wave that is otherwise identical" is more a matter of the things ive referenced here than the shield visualization, but i do acknowledge the validity of this point in particular, regardless of interpretation of how it might translate
    • Martial Arts: Your interest? (Last post by OB1Shinobi)
    • Quote: I feel like I have trained in some form of martial arts for most of my life. I taught for about 5. I like "martial arts". I like the art of moving the body in a martial way. The easy style to name is: Jeet Kune Do because its a philosophy and not a style. I avoid styles. I like arts! i feel the same way "moving the body in a martial way" to me it is not sincere to train in MA as if it were not meant to address the issue of actual.violence -the things i learn and practice have to have functional practical application but the real joy is not in the violence at all, but in the movement itself and to my mind there are only a few systems, really empty handed fighting is one system - krav maga amd judo and boxing are all specializations within the overall system of EMPTY HANDED FIGHTING or MARTIAL ARTS ect the term is unimportant but it doesnt matter to me if i never get in a fight again - mostly i hope that i never do, but i love to train and to learn new things always have -MA is the one thing ive never stopped loving
    • List of scientists who became creationists after s... (Last post by Mareeka)
    • I read most of this thread. The same type of discussion is in numerous threads over the last few years.. Religion versus Science. The parameters feel too small to answer big questions. To me the individual's journey with the meaning and relationship of tangible/quantifiable versus intangible/incorpeal is a long hard tread bouncing back and forth between the two. The Hero's Journey to me looks like the not giving up on life; because, it is hard. Not giving up is the hero. The journey is that is that it is hard. Some of the conclusions in this thread are lumped in to either religion or science. For e.g. to say a myth is an expression like art is very limited and more narrow than the way Campbell uses the term. First a myth is a type of expression "a story", but not all myths are scientifically or human naturally incorrect. They were/are communication, teaching and expression. Often times, that which one could draw an image of from the story doesn't matter at all, the images can be changed but the purpose of the story is what occurs in an action or an exchange. That which can not be seen. The images are just a transportation device. So it is with religion, not everyone has negative take aways. Myself, others I have discussed with this . . just didn't believe from youth that which we did not believe. Some others take those same things and feel they were harmed. Just a hypothesis: what if the creation story harmed no-one, what if women working did more harm? Just saying . . it is not JUST a creation story or hell story that is responsible for humans feelings of safety or doom. (not saying it is working mothers either). Not doing a good job here of trying to say . . . where humanity is today is not limited to religion and science . . there is history, there is human nature, there are political structures EACH with their own programs (postiive and negative). By programs I mean which drive us . . got humanity where it is today. Furthermore, there is overlap and blended influence of everything. To say all religions have a creation story or the same creation story is in-correct. Some do not have any. A relgion is an institution, first, shared beliefs about something second. The humans behind science, politics and human nature are equal contributors to war and bloodshed, and the destruction of that which a few don't want under the facade of for someone's good. In fact, there is much history to point to the structure of religions in the common era by polticians. Prior to that the Jews did what they did . . it wasn't even organized. The same with Christianity. Nowadays to think that everyone who says the word god is talking about the creation story or something useless and irrational is false. That old ideaology of what god means has weakened significantly and progressively in the last 150 - 200 years. It is now so variant and often left up to the individual "hero's journey" to figure out within him/her self. I am not saying not to talk about but more so there are so many nuances in the tapestry to appreciate not just because of the similar but also because of the differences.
