    • Workout Check-In Thread (Last post by rugadd)
    • I hover between 200 and 325 but I have been consistent. I have noticed that dropping and doing 25 at various times at work revitalizes me. My goal is still a thousand a day. I'm going to see if I can hit 400 tonight.
    • The Force (Last post by JL13000)
    • THE FORCE The Force, it has been called by many names trough the ages. In ancient times it was referred to as Akasha. Among Pagans and other nature oriented religions it is known as the 5th element, Aether and a variety of names and personifications are also used in many traditions around the globe. But most people today are most familiar with the name God. It is the energy of which all is made. Therefore everything in existence is one single thing. You could say that you are, in essence , God. This can help you if it is used in the proper way. If you see yourself as an almighty being, superior to others you are mislead by the Dark Side. If you are seeing yourself as a creator then you look trough the eyes of the Light. You are creating your own, subjective reality at all times. This reality responds to the frequencies you create. Your emotions will tell you what kind of frequency you are on. Positive emotions are high in vibration and negative emotions are low in vibration. That is why for example vacation goes so quick and boring classes or work goes so slow. However, you might now be thinking, "then what is the use of negative emotion?" Many people try to undo themselves of these emotions but this is against nature. They are in essence your messengers to let you know you are not living in line with your true Self, with the Force. The Force consists of the Light side and the Dark Side. Although this only applies for this dimension. In all other dimensions there is only Light. This is because the 3rd dimension is one of contrast. It allows you to have a very special perspective. As explained above, there is You, whom is a very focused form of the Force but there is also the form of All. One being. It comes into shape when it withdraws all of its focused forms aka you, your mom, your dog , the tree, the rock, the planet, ... and combines them into one thus it becomes all-knowing. It does this all the time though. The Force is always on your side. Harness the Light or embrace the Dark. The choice is yours.
    • Exponential growth of the number of laws since 250... (Last post by Senan)
    • Anarchy VS Bureaucracy.... always an interesting exploration. The debate often circles around individual liberty versus the needs of the many. It all comes down to TRUST. Let's use gun control as an example. Do you trust me with a gun? Do I trust you? If we do, we should write it down so that it is understood that we can both have guns because we trust each other to be safe and responsible. We'll call it the 2nd Amendment. It's a pretty straight forward law and we all agree on it. Besides, we're on the same team, right? Screw the British! Until someone isn't on the same team... then we write down that everyone can have guns except the people who shouldn't because they can't be trusted. But who decides who those people are? The group of "good guys" who make a set of laws! Yay for democracy! Now we need someone to make those decisions about who is "bad" and be sure those people don't get guns, so we create law enforcement. They are trusted with the power to label "bad guys" and they are given guns so they can keep the bad guys from getting guns because we trust them. Until THEY abuse that trust... Now we have to write down what the law enforcement is allowed to do with their guns and what they aren't. More laws! And on and on and on ad nauseam. Until finally we decide to get rid of ALL the guns and everyone is equal. A new law. NO GUNS! Except for the one guy in charge who still has the biggest gun... and now none of us feel safe. So we overthrow the whole thing and start over. Do you trust me to start over with you? Do I trust you? The dance between Anarchy and Bureaucracy seems to be cyclical. There is a reason that no great civilization lasts longer than a thousand years or so. It is because we collapse under our own bureaucracy and back into anarchy until we restore a sense of safety and order with new bureaucracy.
    • Another drug discussion (Last post by OB1Shinobi)
    • i got the impression that he was using an easy to understand and agree on example as a way to overview the topic of dopamine ect, more than that he was presenting himself as an expert in addiction per se and from that context I would say that his assertion was not at all inaccurate, just incomplete there are a lot of I guess "psycho-social" reasons for drug use and drug addiction which exist beyond the purely neurological mechanics of ingestion, but the presentation, as I understood it, was not centered on addiction anyway the last drug threads were more "is it ok for a jedi to use drugs" than "why do people use drugs to begin with" and that distinction is the more important topic of the two imo
    • Religious Trauma Syndrome (Last post by Akkarin)
    • Maybe it isn't a "real" thing, but if it is then this is its outline: Spoiler: Reminds me of this film about a girl's experience with an abusive cult:
    • School of Life Short lessons (Last post by Vusuki)
    • This came out today. The Meaning of Life in 60 seconds. How much is true? Up to you, :) Hope it gives pause for thought. Enjoy.
    • TOTJO's First Ever Fund Raiser Auction (Last post by ren)
    • Quote: Quote: it all depends what you pay for. royal mail doesnt offer end to end international tracking with signature as far as I know... But you can ship 500g from the UK to switzerland and switzerland to the uk for about 10 dolllars.You can also pay 100, and have next day delivery, tracking, signed for, etc. Shipping is usually quite expensive because sellers want tracking and signatures. There is 'International tracked and signed for' by Royal Mail as I used it when I sent a package to my FIL in the Philippines, that said I don't remember it being cheap :/ Indeed I just looked at it, they do offer it for some destinations... I still prefer couriers though, mostly because they handle customs without slapping exorbitant fees on top of the tariffs and VAT.
    • What Are You Listening To Right Now? (Last post by Vusuki)
    • This is beautiful. I'm taking a quick break and this is something I love listening to. Funnily the last time I posted in this thread it was from the same soundtrack, :p Enjoy.
    • Today I.... (Last post by Senan)
    • Today I watched my 4 year old niece while my brother and his wife went out for a much needed break. It ended up becoming another impromptu "guitar lesson" (see my profile pic). Every guitar I own is now completely out of tune, but it was totally worth it. :)
    • Logic Puzzles (Last post by Akkarin)
    • So I found a new game to play on my phone which isn't Sudoku :P This one is called Hidato. Fill in the blank spaces with the numbers between the two highlighted ones, no numbers can repeat, all consecutive numbers must be put next to each other. So in the first example you need to fill in the numbers between 1 and 19 and numbers such as 8, 9,10 must connect 7 to 11 in order of sequence on the board. Easy: Spoiler: [image] Medium: Spoiler: [image] Challenging: Spoiler: [image] Tricky Spoiler: [image]
    • What do you do when you're bored at work? (Last post by Adhara)
    • This was something I had to learn very quickly when I started studying and working. I guess most time I spent reading e-books on my phone or computer and playing sudoku.
