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?

This is an epiphany for Br. John who had not noticed the sun blazing right out of the symbol. The 5 is for:

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: .

Thank you for the explanation. But is there a symbolic meaning to the \"sign\" on the home page? The three (whatever their name is in mathematics) with the circle inside? I have a hunch but maybe I am interpreting things...

Thanks.

I'm interested in a long term goal of pursuing the M. Div. Are there associated costs with this?

Hi there... :)

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.

It's been a while, real life gets in the way. While there are no costs, do these degrees have actual hard copy certificates to show you've achieved this degree, and are they legitimate degrees, ie. you can put A. Div or M.Div after your name?

Yes there are certificates you can get, there is a fee for the certificate but its the same at most colleges as well (I never picked up my autocad certificate because I didn't have the funds, even though I am certified)

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
