I just read this whole thread, and now I can go to bed satisfied. This is the best group I've ever been a part of, haha. This troll has ironically furthered our connectedness together and strengthened some bonds here. Awesome
If I was building a Temple ideally it would be out of range of all artificial radio transmissions, meaning no wifi or cell phone coverage. Also no pollution or downwind from any likely nuclear targets!! I guess shielded cables could bring in rudimentary connectivity, and some parts of it would greatly benefit from some nice touchscreens full of educational videos and communications software, but I think it would be good if its main area was as 'pure' as possible, if that makes sense?
Power sources? Solar, wind and hydro. Top of a hill seems the best, as the Temple itself could channel rainfall into storage for gravity release through a micro-hydro turbine after dark to compensate for lack of solar, and to slow down the draw from the deep cycle batteries, but we do not want to loose rainwater so to me ablution and habitation might have to exist below the temple along the sides of the hill accessing a secondary post-generation storage area. Wind turbines around the food crop's will generate 24/7 power assuming wind, and scare away birds too probably.
So mine might be a training Temple at the top, then a production layer below it for energy and food, with a habitation layer below that. Ooops day dreaming again!!!
May have nothing to do with homosexuality. 18 year old "going out" with a 15 year old is paedophilia: An adult engaging in sexual acts with a child (someone under 16). Some parents are going to be cool with it, gay or hetero, some aren't. Either way, if the law says it isn't cool, don't complain when you get caught.
Not sure why they call it "battery" though ?

If I over think intuition it get's jumbled.
I completely agree. Once you start to think about your intuition, you immediately over think your intuition. Always go with your gut.
Once I learned to trust my intuition, instinct, gut, whatever you want to call it, I was able to become a much better medic. The ability to overcome the egos need to control instinct is a very helpful tool in your Jedi toolbox.
Thanks for all the advice. On the one hand you can fight, on the other you can give up. I suppose the deciding factor would be whether it's a fight that can be won. Perhaps getting asylum is a win-win? I can go on with my life and voice my objections to tyranny. Can I change the gov't? no, I've tried. Can I change the beliefs of others? maybe. Will I be able to change enough people's beliefs to win? probably not.
So what countries would grant asylum? I already know Canada is out and so is most of the EU because they're all buddies with the US...
No extradition treaty between US and France. Besides, France is the US' oldest ally but they're never gonna suck it up to anyone who consumes "imitation american cheese" :D
Part of the double-speak paradigm is hiding the underlying ideology and making slogans that nobody can disagree with because it doesn't mean anything. It's like "support our troops"... yeah everyone supports our troops... try saying "support our war" and see what happens.
I would like to meet my distant relative who fought in the Civil War and was captured by the South...once released they shipped him off to serve at Fort Caspar where he died of malnutrition. How sucky would that be?
Living...I would like to meet Chris Angel and ask him how he looks so young!!! I mean, whatever he does it works well and I wanna know. :P
We all know, violence it's at last end
we need to know also violence exist
hope never happen, but we all can be pushed to use violence
there is always a way to push other to use.
so, now the real question, when happen, and it's time for us to defend ourself, or someone else
what we use
by self defense law, never a weapon bigger in power than your opponent.
to me, use what I need to end up safe in fast and secure way, if that can be accomplish taking in mind my local laws BETTER
lightsabers don't exist, so are not an option
o whatever we use is up to the moment, there is no way to know (can be in the bathroom, when you take a shower, and your best weapon can be your shampoo and a towel)
you can carry a baton (if is legal) or a stunt baton, or whatever.
lightsabers don't exist, can look like, but doesn't work.
your surrounding can provide weapons.... you can be the weapon...
One has to remember, there is no such thing as good or evil, its all about power.
I think you may have misunderstood the intention of my ramblings MurMur, this was never about God as a deity it was my way of breaking down the differences between the ego brain and true consciousness.
I chose to use the mythology as a method of explaining the internal conflict and the transcendence of it.
I think the word "god" leaves a bitter taste in most people's mouths, but in this case, "god" is a word meaning your own, personal "higher self", not a religious god.
Thank you Master, I suppose the use of the term "GOD" is very much misrepresented at times, as you have stated what I meant by god is the part of you that is "GOD" (the force), whether the god is good or evil is irrelevant, it still created the ego self and as such is the true spirit and driving force behind the illusion of what we are.
Though I also suppose that in using the word god I was talking about the mythical concept of a god that is there for our fragile ego to grasp upon until true enlightenment comes through mythological translation of the holy scriptures.
Even though in the early years of my life i was raised a Christian, i could never take the Bible seriously. In my mind there were some good lessons yes but a lot of what i heard stood out as being no different from the fairy tales my mum and dad told me when i was small. Noahs ark for example or Moses parting the Red Sea..
One must bare in mind that while the Bible is in places trying to give a moral lesson (perhaps not in the most straightforward way) large tracts of it, the Old Testament in particular was written at a time when people still believed the Sun was a man in a chariot flying across the sky or thunder was an expression of the gods anger. Much of it was mans early attempts to explain and educate people on how the world and nature worked and even came into being when infact they had no proof. Indeed, even today, we still largely lack a lot of proof for much of this. While there are SOME lessons to be learned, much of it is pure myth. I cannot treat the story of Genesis any more seriously than the story of the Norse creation myth, how the first gods came out of a giants armpit.
Shadow beings are those people or entities who are still here in our plane of existence. People do not understand that just because the body dies does not mean that that person is non-existent. Shadow people are just energy in a form that we are not aware of or that we can fully comprehend. I have seen shadow people and have had multiple experiences obtaining to shadow people. Not all shadow people are people who can not move on to the next plain of existence. Some of entities who are here for reasons only they know of, if they even know.
Death is nothing but a phase in the existence of life.
