There is no emotion; there is peace.
There is no ignorance; there is knowledge.
There is no passion; there is serenity.
There is no chaos; there is harmony.
There is no death; there is the Force.
The inner 16 rays are for the sixteen traditional Jedi teachings and to honor the hexadecimal system.
Good Question and Thanks for the sun:ohmy: .
I'm curious and can't quite find it anywhere, is there a symbolic nature to this device? What is the significance of the sun and 5?

No, there aren't...
Each 'level' of the degree scheme is accessed via rank (and vice versa, I guess)...
The A.Div is currently made up of the work done for the Initiate's Programme and Apprenticeship...
The B.Div is made up of independent work that you can choose to do following Knighthood (completion of which grants Senior Knight rank at the time of writing)...
The M.Div is a further level of independent study on top of that...
As the degree scheme is so interwoven with our rank system, no, there are no costs involved...if there were, we would be charging people for their ranks, which we would never do...
The only possible costs would be if your Training Master asked you to buy a book, or a movie, in order to study it (or if you chose to purchase such things to assist with independent study at the B.Div/M.Div level - for instance, I have purchased some physical copies of books simply because I don't like reading books on a computer screen - but that was fully my choice and not something that was absolutely necessary to do)...but most Training Masters try to use free online materials to avoid this.
You can add a.div,nb.div,m.div etc....however as we're not accredited many would not recognize it, within totjo though it would be....and possibly at other sites whose membership knows of our methods/procedures
