    • That was really interesting, thanks Adder.
    • What Do We Mean By "Temple"? (Last post by tzb)
    • Quote: It HAS to extend past the boundaries of the site. Otherwise, what is the point. And I am convinced that its that expansion into our "offline (i hate that term) and off site lives that is what makes it so incredible. And of course when it moves past the boundaries of a site, there is the expectation that people carry over the behavior expected of a Jedi. Helps eliminate the role play aspect or the "its not real, just a website" nonsense :woohoo: Oh absolutely, and agreed. I'm sure you're right, that the reason the Temple becomes part of who we are is that part of the idea is that we take the lessons we learn here and go off as individuals to put them into practice in other locations (offline, but also online) we frequent.

    • You might also want to check out math sites about this. Operating on the axiomatic method, much of math will come down and rely upon these logical principles, and since most of set theory can be illustrated quite well with diagrams it may help you see what those things mean. I'm also pretty sure that you are both familiar with and employing these rules every day. Human thinking is strictly bound by them, and if not all of the implications, the rules themselves are pretty intuitive, not least because they are tautologies.
    • Caterpillars Blowing Smoke (Last post by Psyddhattha)
    • I've been away for a while so I can't appreciate the history to all this and I understand the need to step in and defend others when we feel it is required. However, I also think that we need to step back and be wary that it doesn't turn into this:
    • Helping the Homeless? (Last post by Wescli Wardest)
    • There are two sides to any street and any coin. I genuinely want to help those that need help. And it is not right (in my opinion) to judge the degree of severity and authenticity of ones needs. Even though we have all done it including myself. That said, I want to tell a funny short story. :D I use to have to drive by a particular street corner on a regular basis where a panhandler worked. (Someone who asked for money) I have no idea how much money he made, but I rarely donated to the cause. One day, as I approached the intersection I saw that he had made a new sign. It read, “why lie, want beer.” I chuckled to myself, rolled down the window and handed him $5. What he used it for was his business, but I found the whole thing rather amusing. A couple of months went by and I saw him a gain. Winter was approaching and the temperature was dropping. His sign now read, “Too cold for beer, want whiskey.” Again, I donated. Why? Well, I always assumed that homeless people were just spending it on beer anyways and at the time I found the honesty refreshing. And it was funny. And sure, some of them do. But there are also those that need help. I realize now that far too often in my life I was too quick to judge and make assumptions. And where I can’t go back and change things, I can at least try to be better about it moving forward. ;)
    • Cathedrals of Utopia (Last post by Brenna)
    • I love cathedrals. Old ones. I love the smell, the art work and architecture. The gaudy opulence... Whenever I get the chance to be in Europe I spend most of my time roaming from one church to another. But more than that, I like the feeling that most have. A sensation that I have found in sacred spaces belonging to various religions in so many different parts of the world. Its the feeling of quiet. The sense of being in a place where mindfulness, reflection and connectivity lives. But like anything, when you prepare to be in a mindset of spirituality, the very atmosphere of the space changes. Do you need a temple or a cathedral for it? I don't think so. but its easier to make the switch in thoughts when you have one.

    • Quote: Everyone uses soap! Well, that's debatable. haha Quote: I really want to! It's a funding thing again. Understood. I think he got everything he needed for a reasonable price, also from an online source. Quote: How does your husband enjoy it? :D Loves it. He's a very hands-on kind of person, though. He works with everything from robotics to amigurumi. :) Quote: Hush you! I have enough projects to finish hahahahaha. Whoops! ;)
    • Emotional Meditation (Last post by steamboat28)
    • Quote: Has anyone else used this or other methods to explore their emotions and would you agree it can be beneficial? This is actually how I process most intense emotion. Unlike most people, who want something happy to take their mind off the sadness or anger, I kind of dive deeper into it. It's almost as if others tread water, and I swim to the bottom to pull the plug. I learned a long time ago that is best for me, personally, so I try to do it as often as I need to stay balanced, and to remember that emotions aren't bad--it's what we do with them that makes our lives difficult.
    • Best star wars movie/scene (Last post by tzb)
    • Quote: Anakin: From my point of view the Jedi are evil! Oh man, I'm sorry to do this after saying you were getting old the other day but... for me this is one of the worst lines in the whole saga. It's a perfect example of bad writing... it embodies the opposite of the classic advice "show, don't tell". It's Ep III's equivalent of the toe-curlingly awful "No, it's because I'm so in love with you!" The other ones you mentioned are all pretty great. Ep III is seriously underrated.
