Big bang theory and the Force (childrens version) 13 Aug 2008 14:36 #17896

In the beginning there were four forces held tightly by a unifying Force that kept them all together. One day the four Young forces got into a huge fight.

'I want my own space' said the strongest Force.
Each of the other forces agreed and at risking the happiness of the little family The Force, in it's infinite knowledge and power agreed to help them out.

'I will give you space but you must work together because we are a family' The Force released one of them into the infinite blackness and the others quickly followed.

Shortly after the universe was filled with energy and heat. But the Force reminded them of their promise. They came together and stretched out combining their gifts.
The forces worked together to create clouds of dust which became stars which died very quickly. Saddened the forces went to the Force with their complaints.
'Everything we create dies. Isn't there something we can do?'
The Force, with it's caring eyes looked down at its family and explained.
'Nothing you create will last forever. In order to create new things the old things must die. Continue to create and they will begin to last longer, give it time.'

Sure enough after several thousand years stars were created out of the dust, stronger matter was created from the dying stars and planets were created from that.

Eventually out of the dust our the Sun was created and our little blue planet was created. At first it was nothing but a ball of heated matter but over time it got cooler one of the forces choose to stay around and influence us directly and the other indirectly.

In our early years as human beings we had a direct connection to the Force but over time, as humans tend to do, we forgot from which we came from. The Force has had many names and many parts. And we are finally learning to connect to it again.




So, what do ya'll think?

I took actual science theory and combined it with the belief in the Force. This is sort of what i believe so i thought it would be a good idea to make it suitible for children. :)

well would be true as the force is unstable energy and most children are hyper like me so the child idea fits perfectly in opinio

I believe that you have just created the first Jedi bedtime story / folklore tale for younglings. Nice one Sister April

I agree with what you said April and also with Lenny about this being a story to pass on to the younger generation. We have lost much in knowledge because of technology, it is time to combine the old with the new and allow it to grow as the younger forces did in their time. We are slowly reconnecting with the elements which of course stems from the Force. By many standards we are a young species, with great potential.

That was what i was going for, not to mention this story allows for the explanation of any diety you choose. It is completely pure, no dharma thrown in. So, Christian Jedi, Pagan Jedi, or Sith. It all works. I hadn't thought of the Bedtime story part though. Maybe someone should try it out and see if it works. *hint hint, poke poke* :D

That really is an interesting story Master April, and whilst reading it makes very much sense. In fact this kind of reminds me of Simarilion by J.R.R.Tolkien and his version of the creation of the world.

At to using this for children I do think it needs working on. For one the mention of the one big Force, and the four other forces where one of them is stronger. That could prove to be a little to abstract and confusing for some children. Maybe by giving them names and describing what they do may help to construct a pictures in their minds. Also what gifts are they which these forces share? Also the death part where matter becomes stronger may require also a picturesque story.

    • Non-Conformity... (Last post by Acheron)
    • Quote: Quote: it takes far more genius to operate creatively and uniquely within a defined framework. Unique and creative people, whether they pretend to be conformist or not, are not conformists. You can't both be unique and like everyone else, you can't create something new which is somewhat also usual. Brenna (and her friend) form an interesting point, ren. Why are unique and creative people not capable of conforming or being labeled as such? If the choices of “the unique” were to mirror those of “the average” within a defined framework, are they still not the same choices in and of themselves? Choices which align and are essentially the same? Choices which, after allowing retention of our essence, perspective and experiences, prove that we can be both unique/creative and conforming simultaneously? I believe the above is the polar opposite of what Alexandre Orion described as partial conformity. Quote: . We do have to conform in part ; all levels of social organisation depend on it. Likewise, all levels of social organisation depend on a little non-conformity too, without which we would have an arrested culture. And that non-conformity has to penetrate all of the social dimensions : the arts, religions, sciences, politics, philosophy &c. But even that non-conformity, which assuredly meets with resistance, has to remain recognisable, it must remain at least marginally within the scope of not only what people know, but also what they are comfortable with. In other words, non-conformity has limits. ;) Where maintaining a bit of ourselves throughout the conforming process, making it a partial conformity, is paramount to our overall endurance as unqiue and creative beings. More interestingly, if all humans chose to be “unique and creative” then wouldn’t that social collection of peoples serve as the grandest version of conformity itself? At which point, a partial conformity could still exist for this ultimate conformity and poses limitations in the same regard as non-conformity. Thoughts on this? It may be possible to be both unique and creative while actively choosing a path of conforming or non-conformity. Maintaining our selves as the isolated variations of the social structures we inhabit, while sharing likenesses and commonalities with those among us – partial conformity. As Brenna stated, there is value in being comfortable with both. By embracing both we become aware of the time and place for which one may (or must) conform. Make Good Choices, Acheron
    • Thoughts of a simple man (Last post by crystale)
    • Many times ,I like stop the fast run... Move in slow... to check signals what in fast way, maybe are lost... Adjust to nature, biologically. Contemplate what is our place ,or where we are. (our ocupation in the universe and in the plan, in our personal cosmic point of focus) stop and put attention to who or what is arrive to us. Sometimes, some aparently imperceptible things, have a message for us in relationship with our preocupation... they are so close that we can't see ! and maybe we are in a search so far away Many times our mind need to rest as process of rebuild (sleep) Many times meditation - Many times (nothing),because wrong things can produce more wrong, as domino effect. Wait for "clouds" are go.
    • What do you get out of magic/k? (Last post by Zenchi)
    • First of all, how do you define magic/k? That question will largely influence as well as determine what an practitioner gets out of it. For me, it has become intrinsic to being alive. I have found after nearly thirty years of study, practice and exploration that the most powerful magic is rooted in self transformation, and should be associated with psychology...
    • Jedi creed (doubt and faith) (Last post by Alexandre Orion)
    • doubt~faith : coincidentia oppositorum : faith~doubt This is another of those instances where one implies the other ; if you have one, you have both. The question is how much balance we can bring to them ... We get pretty wrapped up in to dichotomous thinking which leads to a sort of rational manicheism whereby one is lead to believe that herein is a conflict in which one is good, the other bad and one (preferably the good) must defeat the other. This is not really the case : we need both doubt and faith in appropriate measure (but let's not try to actually measure them). Alan generously points out that there are variant kinds of doubt. This is true. Whereas methodical doubt is very practical and useful, the scientific method relies upon it and one would not be able to use discernment or discrimination without it, there is also the doubt that arises where there has been no - or very badly done - discernment nor discrimination (irrational fear). Doubt is the receptacle into which faith can be poured, yet as with pouring a cup of tea where there is no cup, free flowing faith without a degree of doubt to receive it makes a mess. Whereby irrational doubts are easily recognisable as nearly paralysing handicap, so is irrational faith. Nevertheless, they must go together as a relationship of coincidentia oppositorum. Reason cannot reason its own reasonableness ; we cannot through logic itself arrive at the conclusion that logic is sufficient. We intuit that. Since we must doubt our certainties and yet at the same time have faith in our capacity to explore and manipulate (manipulate in its positive sense : to be able to use) our environment, then re-doubt how we decide to use it, to what ends and so forth, we see that we need both ... Ergo, 'Where there is doubt, (I shall bring) faith ;' then, suggests that I, as an instrument of peace, come to bring these into balance -- the balance in situational appropriateness. An example : my friends have enjoyed two or three lovely bottles of wine and in the resulting gaiety, decide what a fine thing it would be to go down to the river and have a swim. I must dissuade them from doing something quite dangerous by bringing enough doubt where there is too much faith ... Yet, I do this from faith.

    • Yoga (Last post by Adder)
    • Quote: Quote: Contemporary Yoga might have taken a lot of the poses and used them for flexibility and exercise uses, where a hold might relieve the tension more effectively then a moment in movement into and out of a stretched position. That's my thoughts on it. Some positions I see in videos etc are held, but in classes they are all held. I wonder if perhaps it is a country thing, I am in the UK for classes but all videos I see are American. Cultural difference in interpretation maybe? Probably everyone is a bit different. Video's might be instructional and therefore hold positions a bit longer to demonstrate better for the audience. Also some people do Yoga as a calisthenics type of exercise which seem not to hold at all, almost like a cardio exercise banging out reps of full range motion!! For introductory Yoga it seems usual to approach a position and not reach it due to inflexibility, and then hold it a bit to help stretch out the muscles, fascias, ligaments etc as a way to get better at Yoga and improve flexibility more generally. I think there are benefits to that, as sometimes pain can be associated to imbalances in different muscles groups or stress etc. It is not my area though, its just a hobby my partner 'puts me through' occasionally. :S :)
