    • What is the Dark Side? (Last post by Connor L.)
    • To be honest, I don't know. hahah. I would not listen to anybody who tells me they truly understand the origin of all things. All I know (besides nothing), is that Darkness is the origin of all things. Before there was light, there was darkness. And, before Darkness, light. And, before Light, darkness. And, so on through the eons. How CAN the darkness produce light? If we truly understood that, then there would be no question as to the origins of the universe. Scientists and religious people have debated this for a very long time. If you come up with the answer, please let me know. In all simpleness, this is just my belief. Out of nothing came something. But, there was probably something else before that.
    • What would be in the temple? (Last post by OB1Shinobi)
    • in my imagination the jedi temple is on a large plot of land which reaches a coast line - there are many square miles of untouched natural forest which is a preserve on the one hand but also an education and training "resource" on the other - it would be even more awesome if there was a mountain range accessible from the preserve and since we're wishing why not wish for a hardy river to run through it as well this would allow wilderness and survival training and also general camping and nature loving the coastal part of the property would have a dock or a port for our "navy" which may not be more than a few canoes but one day would include vessels capable of international travel we would have some commercial and some "military" capabilities - nothing to brag about or get attention - simply the ability to put people in a ship and go from here to there is a "capability" we would grow crops and raise livestock and also there would be a few separate aquaponic systems there would be a gymnasium with equipment for gymnastics, dance, weights, martial arts, yoga, ect a shooting range for firearms and archery there would be another area for arts and crafts and for musical training and composition, which would also have a presentation hall with stage for performances there would be classrooms need a warehouse (aka a shed lol) area for inventing, building, and fixing whatever projects may come up NATURALLY there would be as extensive a library as possible and well stocked kitchen, and living quarters for maybe 100 people, and a meditation hall also there would be sand and rock gardens and fountains and different kinds of art and chimes - the entire aesthetic would be one to promote a sense of wonder and hopefulness ----- if you dont know what aquaponics are small at-home aqua ponics with fish tank
    • Hollywood Starting To Take Sci-Fi/Fantasy More Ser... (Last post by ZenJo)
    • I was curious as to everyone's thoughts on the upcoming Sci-Fi/Fantasy films that we are going to be treated to in 2015, 2016, and 2017. I have noticed that the Sci-Fi genre is actually gaining more mainstream success as of late and I am excited to see if Hollywood keeps this up and finally treats Sci-Fi/Fantasy fans with more respect. I haven't been to the movies much lately because there really hasn't been much worth seeing in my opinion. Ridley Scott's "The Martian" though was a great movie in my opinion and gives me hope for the future of the genre. Here is a list of some upcoming films in production and why I am excited to finally have a reason to go the movies (besides the popcorn). 1.) SW - The Force Awakens. I think it goes without saying that we all want to see this. Regardless of the "spoilers" some on the internet think they have stumbled upon. For those who doubt J.J. Abrams' abilities, go watch "Super 8" and "Star Trek - Into Darkness". He produced "Cloverfield" which I have mixed feelings about, but still, he is a good director in my opinion. Just be eternally thankful that Michael Bay is not going to touch SW (fingers crossed), that would be, needless to say, a nightmare. 2.) Alien - Pardise Lost (Prometheus 2). Ok, for those who thought Prometheus was confusing because Ridley Scott created more questions than answers, you will hopefully be getting those answers in this sequel/prequel. The Alien series is one I have enjoyed and when I first heard in 2012 that Ridley Scott wanted to tell the backstory I was super excited. Prometheus sets up a premise that an alien race seeded Earth through a genetic engineering sustance which caused the evolutionary cycle to begin millions of years ago. And then for some unknown reason the alien race wanted to destroy Earth and they created the Xenomorph as type of biological weapon. The sequel promises to take us to the Engineer homeworld where we will get our many questions answered (hopefully). Giorgio Tsoukalos (aka "Ancient Aliens Meme Guy") is probably in love with the Prometheus concept. 3.) Avatar 2. Ok, I know I'm not alone in being excited about this one. James Cameron really nailed the first movie. Avatar was the kind of movie that a half hour into it I already knew I was going to buy it on Blue Ray and see the sequel. I love the philosphy behind the world of Pandora and their religion. Also I love the sociological and political undertones of this movie. I don't usually say that about movies but the concepts here are outstanding. You have the story of the military trying to colonize Pandora and harvest its resouces with complete disregard of the native people. Sound familiar? Its a story that resonates with people because it has been told in our history many times. And I admit, I also loved Avatar because of my nostalgia for Fern Gully, lol. 4.) The Hunger Games - Mockingjay: Part 2. I'm planning to see this one in theatres even though I saw the other movies on DVD or Netflix only. I mostly just want to see the series wrapped up and watch it purely for entertainment value. Even though Hollywood tends to botch movies based on books and true Hunger Games fans are critical of some elements of the films, I think the movies series has done a good job of entertaining the fans. I don't want to spoil anything for people who haven't watched or read the other books and films, but how awesome was Lenny Kravitz in the movies?! He was a great choice for the Cinna role. 5.) Alien 5. This one is not coming out until 2017. If you hate the Alien series, you are probably hoping this movie is the final nail in the coffin. Or if you are like me and love the dark, H.R. Giger inspired film sets and monsters, this is going to be a fun trip to the movies. Here is why this film is important: Both Sigourney Weaver and Michael Biehn are returning for this one. And Neill Blomkamp will be directing which should be interesting. He's the one that did "Distric 9" and "Elysium". Those two films are questionable but he has great potential. 6.) SW - Episodes 8 and 9. Not sure of the release date on these yet. Hopefully Episode 7 will make me want to see the last two. Like i said before though, I have good feelings about this one despite the many potential things that could go wrong. I'm sure there are some I'm missing, feel free to offer your thoughts. Even though its a more of a horror film, "Crimson Peak" looks really cool. It will be in theatres Thursday. Also looking forward to Spectre to get my James Bond fix. I left off the Marvel Comics films bc they are hit or miss and lately have been miss. There is also a Ghostbusters reboot but that really more of a comedy. I've heard talk of another Indiana Jones movie which I think might be a mistake to try to do at this point. And the Independence Day sequel is also a mistake waiting to happen, in my opinion. But basically I am excited to maybe get my money's worth at the movies again. What to you all think?
    • Questions that have crossed my mind about Jediism (Last post by Jestor)
    • Every angle/thought/action/idea/etc cannot be covered no matter how hard we try... And, you have pulled specific examples, should you wish to discuss how these specific points can be seen and discussed, then that can be done as well... But, let me take a swing at it..;) Quote: Now what exactly is that supposed to mean? Moral concepts are not absolute? Your next statement allows that not all are absolute, correct? Quote: Maybe some are not and vary with time and cultures So, not all... Murder? Quote: but some certainly are such as the murder of innocents Who is the innocent you refer? I will take a guess, and assume you mean children? I think we all agree... Moving on... Quote: , stealing (whether it is ok in your "culture" or not) Well, again, ideally, you are correct... But, I have stolen, and felt bad, paid for my crimes, and been stolen from... A little Karma perhaps? lol... Being stolen from certainly put things in perspective... lol... But, I doubt any here would say stealing is good... Quote: , abusing other people in various forms especially children and old people. Agreed!! Dang if we are not just moving along!! ;) Not being snotty, or passive agressive, I am just goofy... Quote: Just because these things have been allowed doesn't mean they were ever ok. That one is far too vague and open to interpreting however one wishes. I think you are looking at it to narrowly..:) How about: Being gay? Being black/white/Asian/Spanish? Donating blood? The whole vax/antivax argument? Burkas? Guns control rights? Anyone else? Every one of these, and tons more, are subject to a some type of culture...
    • SW + politics = silly (Last post by Brenna)
    • Brilliant! Someones gone to a lot of trouble with these :) "im not going to show you my petticoat" :D :pinch: :P
    • Mental Tutaminis (Last post by Jayzn)
    • Great to put a name to what I'm currently working on. I often find myself focusing on the past to the point that it sometimes hinders me. It's probably my perception of the past more so than the actual events, but I feel like they block me from achieving my potential. Being able to practice something that would allow me to redirect it to something else would be ideal, but is often difficult. Right now I am attempting to redirect it into various meditations. Acceptance and absorbing those feelings is the most difficult. I have tried in the past and have found it to work, but eventually it begins to fester again. My take on this is that Tutaminis is not something to do just once, or whenever a problem (external or internal, but probably more so for the internal) is that it should be practiced constantly and be something I am constantly aware of.
    • The Sith Creed and How It Actually Helps Me? (Last post by elizabeth)
    • I think if you find it useful then use it But I would say, that I am learning with emotions that its not always about trying to control them, rather accepting that I have these feelings, understanding why, and controlling my reaction to them. Emotions will come and I personally can't control them. Trying to do so, or avoid, or deny them has caused me a lot more upset than accepting them when they do come up and then controlling my reactions to those emotions. Being aware of them, listen to what they are saying but then take a step back and consider all perspectives not just the emotional AGhh one. Then act. There are a lot of material that is helpful out there, Sith or Jedi, some you will use some you won't. It's your journey and only you can decide what helps you.
    • From time to time a poem (Last post by Alexandre Orion)
    • Azimut Par mégarde tu pris ma main Encore Que je ne prisse aucun Sens, Autant moins que je n'en eus … En langage inouï épais d'entendement Tu confirmas ton passage Outre-empyrée ; Ainsi, t'entourai-je de mes bras, Nous Lançâmes-nous vers les Constellations De par-deçà … Par une curiosité déterminée Nous fûmes conduits Sur mondes perçus en remembrances Naguère des moments tragiques et tendres : Par-là et par-ça nous traversâmes des mers, Goûtâmes des fruits des îles, Bûmes de leurs lait nourricier, Dormîmes sous leurs coupoles Dessinées en différentes Constellations De l'au-deçà ... Le Monde vivant est l'Être Quelque peu que l'on y soit attentif, Que l'on le connaisse, Que l'on le touche, que l'on ne fasse pas de Carte Pour l'étouffer sous y-celle Image – Aussi ne l'encellule-t-on point Dans l'infinie de l'espace … Par Complicité, tu serras ma main Encore Que tu ne reconnusses guère l'imprévu Exprimé par l'inouï Épais d'entendement : La voûte tourbillonne, répertoriant Toutes les Images en d'autres tableaux, Portraits d'autres personnages dont La tragédie confond la Remembrance tendre car Fidèle est le Mythe En-deçà et au-deçà … Valeureusement, je pris ta Main Encore Que le voyage fût convenu En mille-et-Une langages inouïs épais d'entendement ; Ayant enfin Sens, aussi en prîmes-un – Nous fîmes transbordement – m'entouras-tu de tes bras, Nous Lançâmes-nous vers le Monde De toutes les Constellations.

    • Quel est l'importance de l'intuition chez un Jedi?... (Last post by Adder)
    • Quote: Thanks Adder for your answer, very rich in terms of thought. I apologize about my translation, I think in French and try to rephrase in English after. Tell me if I'm wrong, but you seem to be saying some things I think for a long time: That instinct is linked to will, emotions and to act. And that intuition is rather related perceptions of our mind, and that inter-acts with the reasoning, memory and term awarness. Is this is what one must understand from some parts of your comments Adder? Yes I think that is an accurate reading of those parts. A very interesting topic, I'll be reading more of all this, thanks again!!
    • Gregg Braden talk about heart energy field, The fo... (Last post by Tombe)
    • I like this video goes for 30 minutes. Is about the human heart energy field & how we can use our mind & heart energy field to talk to a great field some scientists call God's mind or the field. Is a field that binds all atoms. The force? Then there is this one for 4 hours deeper explanation, is good view! Any thoughts? 1st you must know what heart energy field is when you pump it up, then you must learn how to send it to where you want like to a pain in your body, then perhaps out side your body!

    • Your Inner Council: What is it and how to develop ... (Last post by Adder)
    • Robert H Goddard replaced the Catholic upbringing Jesus & God for me when I was young :lol: I haven't really done it since, until more recently when I did some work with the identity of Gampopa. I got some good results with this, including actual visions and strange dreams (by my standards). I don't do it otherwise, preferring to view things in energetic dynamic system terms rather then personalities, but think its an interesting exercise with real potentials.
