    • Humble and Egotist (Last post by efuller18)
    • And in some cases you are actually encouraged to behave like an egoist. On the way back from a conference one of my professors and I had a conversation about what you need to do to suceed as a woman in computer science and academia in general. We also talked about the differences she sees in female students and male students. What she basically said was you have to be confidant in the extreme. You have to project the belief even if your not that you are the absolute best programmer/researcher in your school. She said a lot of female students don't project that kind of confidence which is on the edge of pure arrogance. She asked me how I would rank myself against my fellow students and I said I have no idea. She said most of her male students would say they were great in comparison. It was the first time I had ever really heard someone saying that having the attitude that there is always more to learn is a bad thing and that projecting that attitude could have negative consequences for your career. Apparently, being humble is not an advantage when it comes to a scientific career.
    • HEMA, what is it? (Last post by RyuJin)
    • despite my heritage i've never really felt a connection to european fighting arts...i've always been drawn to the east asian arts...and i've been studying them since i was 8 years old....so 31 years now.....man i'm old.....
    • Jediism.. way of asking? What are the subjects tha... (Last post by Aqua)
    • The main purpose of this topic is to share your subjects that you would like to see more at the temple. Many threads in this section of the forum goes about what you think of a specific subject. What are the subjects you would like to mind about? Just to find out what kind of subjects the temple likes.. It might bring wonderful insight and inspiration. I guess that I enjoy to discuss objects that are not used much. Because It can help us to understand things better that we normally pass over. Creating a new way to see things by watching out a other perspective, guess that is also the reason for me to create this Topic. Lets improve our way of seeing from multiple perspectives together. :blush: May the force be with us all ~ Aqua
    • Wonders of our Doctrine.. (Last post by Adder)
    • Quote: Do you think it is written correctly? Please mind with me and share your opinion, I am not sure what i should think, and I would like to know your opinion about the roots of Jediism. I agree with your post, but don't think it was written to express Jediism, rather to appeal to various attributes of the particular market. Part of that was to include Jediism, but also other things... what other things? Where those boundaries fall might be a personal thing though depending on what the individual was, how they are, and who they want to be - how much 'correct' writing for the individual might even change across those three natures of self!! I'd just be decisive and try an approach out, then adjust based on the results. As you could imagine there being two approaches to a path, the listener (most people walk this path by subscribing to an established path using the context of past self), and the discoverer (different type of commitment, greater risk perhaps, to shape the present). I think spirituality is the shared focus on shaping who they 'want' to be in the future. For me its more the later, such as I see Yoda's 'training' was about how to know oneself more then anything IMO (but what is 'one' and 'self'!). Either way the 'approach' can be seen as the basis or ground for the path to some 'result' for when you learn to ride a bike they say to always look where you want to go, and not stare at the big rock in the middle of the path ahead of you else you'll ride right into it!! Your focus determines your reality (to some extent).
    • Jedism hippies? (Last post by Aqua)
    • If I would ask: ,,How can I know that different hippies like the same kind of music.'' Jestor would have asked: ,,What is music?'' If I would ask: ,,How can rules affect a faith?'' Jestor would have asked: ,,What is affection?'' When Jestor asked himself: ,,Why is Aqua trying to type what I think?'' Aqua would have said: ,,Knowing the mind of a person is not harder than expressing yourself.'' Just wondering.. what would happen if all people would give equal value to the same principles or rules? Would we still be able to separate an individual from a group? If principles are so important for groups, why is it that we find it so difficult to express the line between ourselves and others groups? How can it be, that understanding our self is just as difficult as understanding a group? :blush:
    • saber build (Last post by RyuJin)
    • once the parts arrive i'll be using this thread as a sort of tutorial.... my old ultrasaber was never oiled....6years and going and it still opens just fine...the body for my new build wasn't oiled either and it doesn't stick....but i'm constantly opening both sabers.....worst case scenario i'll use some oil from my gun cleaning kit....
    • Posting Pictures (Last post by Jestor)
    • Quote: So if I'm understanding you I using my phone to access the internet and the forum so it will upload right from my phones picture album? Yes? Yep...
    • a question about the value of human life (Last post by Ariane)
    • I am lost this conversation is confusing, We should do a survey or a poll to find out what other people think. Does human life have value? Do people support a tyranny of this magnitude?
    • The Sixth Extinction (Last post by Locksley)
    • A positive outlook was what I started it on: Quote: Our intelligence and our technology have given us the power to affect the climate. How will we use this power? Are we willing to tolerate ignorance and complacency in matters that affect the entire human family? Do we value short-term advantages above the welfare of the Earth? Or will we think on longer time scales, with concern for our children and our grandchildren, to understand and protect the complex life-support systems of our planet? The Earth is a tiny and fragile world. It needs to be cherished. [ Source ] ~Carl Sagan So, yes, I did start this with hearing positive possibilities, as well as various concerns (and possible solutions to those concerns). Actually I tried to leave it pretty open-ended, but I certainly started it with a note of positivity directed at solutions to issues we face. "In any case, this thread was hardly geared toward solutions" isn't quite accurate.
