    • No inner monologue (Last post by Brenna)
    • Thanks Luthien. I had no idea that sensation had a name :D Do you have a process for practicing it?
    • TotJO (Last post by Adder)
    • Yea, there are Jedi here who work with dark and light, and shadows and grey concepts, but like with a lot of the fiction - its not forced here onto people to become attached to something from the fiction (except maybe the 'Force' but that is open to interpretation?). I tend to view TOTJO as being less prescriptive in its approach for Jedi, where some other groups tend to focus on specific elements of the fiction to define their approach (sometimes for functional reasons and sometimes just for identity issues), we let the individual use what they want to work with, so long as it does not conflict with the spirit of the doctrine. The IP, Degree and Clerical Programs here do provide specific guidance, but its not based in the fiction so much, rather its to assist Jedi in how to best experience their Jedi path without actively prescribing to them what that path should be. This to me is the most inclusive method, as it not only allows people from other groups to enjoy the Temple, but it does still allow for like minded Jedi to form working groups or projects along cultural or functional approaches anyway. Thus the Temple grows based on the members interests and activity, rather then their adherence to its particular interpretation of the fiction (because we don't prescribe it). That's my personal view on it, hope I didn't confuse the issue for you :huh:
    • speed of light (Last post by Adder)
    • Still pondering the OP, I guess the relativity aspect is a way to move things from A-B at ultra high speeds, as in if you fly really fast here on Earth, your speed is (for this most practically) relative to the air mass - how hard your pushing the air out of the way (to move). The speed of sound's sonic boom is all about how the air handles that type of impact. Previously the design and construction of aircraft had failed before the air's uniformity had. In space obviously there is no air, so I wonder what other types of fields you might impact which associate some concept of relative motion..... gravity, radiation, dust!? So how do we design a 'spacefoil', something which creates not lift to defeat gravity like an aerofoil, but vacuum to defeat relative motion.... I think it might need to be a variation of a Star Trek transporter which operates a disassembly field to the front, turning all matter into energy, which then zap's it out the rear into a reassembly field. Overcoming the relativity by turning everything to energy and moving it through 'vehicle' at the speed of light!! I think what I'm saying is they did not need to blow up the Earth in the Hitchhikers Guide, they just needed to pass through it :woohoo:
    • Wearable Body weights (Last post by Rob78)
    • You could try a total gym xl, you use your own body weight for resistance, very good for toning and strengthening muscles, can also be used to increase agility.
    • Rants far and wide (Last post by Proteus)
    • Don't let me feel too wanted... or trusted... or needed now... we wouldn't want that. That would actually match what you say I am to you... and that would actually make sense... we can't have that now, can we? No. Of course not.
    • Cultural Appropriation (Last post by steamboat28)
    • Just because tumblr is a near-literal cesspool of the worst types of human beings to ever discuss social justice issues does not mean that this isn't still a serious problem. Furthermore, the "autism" spiel in the middle of the video was highly unnecessary.
    • What it's like to teach evolution at the Universit... (Last post by OB1Shinobi)
    • this is just over five minutes and helps to explain whats going on this is not representative of the entire religious experience either of americans in general nor necessarily of southerners specifically but it IS a reality of the religious climate within a portion of the american society
    • Making of a Jedi Warrior (Last post by OB1Shinobi)
    • it is not necessary to join the military to live the life of a warrior the military provides the original context for developing the warrior mentality however, within and without the military, warriors are the ones who take it upon themselves (responsibility) for developing their own warrior spirit we may be provided with context, opportunity, challenges, training, guidance, hardship, danger and even purpose by external phenomena, such as the military or the dojo ultimately, no warrior was ever made by anyone or anything other than themselves 5 mins 5 mins 8 mins 10 mins
    • The Art of Self-Discipline (Last post by Matsukaze)
    • Self discipline to me is the ever- flowing stream of philosophy and spirituality. When the stream comes across an object or obstruction, it passes around it, not through it. Stress is trying to go through it. Discipline is going around it and maintaining the stream. Hope that gives perspective!
    • Jedi Altar (Last post by Sirius)
    • I really like it!! I have an altar at home, though it's been neglected most of the time lately. It's also gone back and forth between Christian and Buddhist symbols. I like the idea of putting some classic SW symbolism in there. Honestly wouldn't have thought of that (or at least thought I should do it). But it makes sense, seeing as how SW is one of the things that inspires me most in life! Thanks!
    • Jediism? (Last post by Jestor)
    • Quote: Quote: Since this ISNT the Gathered Force Community, perhaps we can discuss this site? We too have a map, located here: www.templeofthejediorder.org/forum/Offline-activities :) Forgive me, I forgot you guys had a map *bows* No worries...;) Not all members are aware of everything... We were just talking about our non-english speaking groups in the knight forum... Thanks...:)
    • Jediism, relationship of perfection and harmony in... (Last post by Adder)
    • I see chaos and harmony as directions, or orientations, and not actual states. Considering them as states introduces/invents a 'discord of dichotomy'. Perfection are what mirrors are for.... lol! I'd place consciousness as a type of perfection, as they are subjectivity manifest alignments of something, updated through time to achieve alignment and therefore the direction/effort to achieve perfect orientation, ie mimicking. Achieved in humans by 'cortical homunculus' with "the concept of "the body within the brain"—that one's hand or face exists as much as a series of nerve structures or a "neuron concept", as it exists as a physical form." an example of nature striving for perfection.
    • for our d&d fans (Last post by a67)
    • Long time I dont played games... I miss my elf shinobi.... :laugh: I already created several games... I was a dungeon master. I still have one map for a game I was creating. Genre broken times.. I found a book with SW style d&d. It give me a taste to create a new game. Thats would be great on a computer platform.
