    • Quote: You can't organize a system designed to mean a different thing to each individual. Yet here we stand, lol... :lol:... Part of the key, is remaining open, and fluid... I say "part" so as to stay open, and adaptable... lol... I get stuck sometimes too, but we are going too... Then, when we realize we are, unsticking ourselves is important... And continuing forward... :)
    • Voting for a Jediism section on there. (Last post by Connor L.)
    • Quote: As I said in another thread, TOTJO will close, when something better comes... I'm not positive that is true. I don't know why... I wrote out a big thing, then I thought it was stupid. haha. But, I don't think that's true.
    • The Force as described by a physicist? (Last post by Rickie)
    • Quote: I doubt you even have an idea of what it is we can measure. I'm not anti science at all and while what we can measure is ever rapidly expanding my point is the more we know the more we realize what we don't know. That is a good thing. I'm not picking and choosing, We have limits, we are expanding our limits but there will always have limits. That's part of our life's/human condition/challenges. I am also absolutely of the belief we can know things in more ways than just science. That is not in any way the same thing as saying any thing is wrong with science. It's all complementary. IMHO No Poo. :-)
    • Musings of a Madman (Last post by Gisteron)
    • So I did google speed of light slowing down, found a number of popular science magazines talking about slowing down light through refractive media and a few creationist websites. Now one of those isn't talking about the natural constant c and the other is talking anti-science by principle. While the speed of light is defined as constant, there is nothing technically wrong with viewing the speed of light as a variable and other things as constant in its stead; it's just incredibly inconvenient seeing how almost all of physics would have to be discarded and written anew. But anyone and everyone is welcome to go ahead and try that and I'm sure the first one to succeed will go home with a Nobel Prize that day. On another note, gravity is not a repulsive but an attractive force and dark energy is not the same as negative mass. When astronomers or physicists speak of dark matter or energy they mean such that does not register on spectrometers, not one that is in any way twisted or the opposite of their conventional counter-parts. And speaking of gravity, when we say force we don't mean some magical thing that affects things either, but rather the time derivative of momentum. Now, in classical mechanics that would mean the product of velocity and mass time derivative added to the product of mass and acceleration. However, light does not have mass, so the mechanical momentum can't be it. Instead we know - from relativity - that it's energy is the product of its velocity and momentum. At the risk of losing you here or making a whole bunch of mistakes or both, I shall not go ahead and deduce that from Maxwell's equations. Anyway, the energy of a unit of light I shall henceforth call photon is proportional to its frequency and as with any wave, the speed is the product of wavelength and frequency, so we end up with the momentum being inversely proportional to the wavelength and I shall henceforth call the scale factor Planck's constant. Of course what we have now is the magnitude of a momentum that does not depend at all on time and doesn't involve speed. So therefore the time derivative of that magnitude is zero and the photon's speed doesn't change, eventhough a force - gravity - is present. But of course momentum being a vector quantity it has not only a magnitude but also a direction, so that must be what the force is acting upon and this is what we observe: In the vicinity of a gravity well light bends towards the well. It changes direction but retains speed.
    • Rants far and wide (Last post by Goken)
    • How do you lose some of the paperwork but not all of it if I sent it to you STAPLED TOGETHER!?!
    • Heaven, Hell, Re-incarnation? (Last post by Khaos)
    • As I said, its in my will. When I had a child, I had a will done. I dont have to wait for death to know what will be done with my meat suit when I am dead. Only those without a will, will have to wonder.
    • A Simple Question (Last post by Streen)
    • Quote: Again and again students ask, "What is Buddha?" The Masters' seemingly nonsensical responses have survived over the centuries, often as koans. What is Buddha? "Three pounds of flax." Tung-Shan "Dried shitstick." Yun-men "This very mind." Ma-Tsu "Not mind, not Buddha." Ma-Tsu "What is not the Buddha?" Nan-Yang Hut-Chung "The cat is climbing up the post." Pa-Chiao Hui-Ch'ing "I never knew him." Nan-Yang Hut-Chung "Wait until there is one, for then I will tell you." Nan-Yang Hut-Chung "A new bride rides a donkey, the mother-in-law leads it." Shou-Shan "When you utter the name of Buddha, wash out your mouth." Zen Saying "Look within, thou art Buddha." The Voice of Silence
    • Physical temple (Last post by Bareus)
    • The force is everywhere Wich means that the world is our temple, places such as temples dedicated to jediism would of course be a good idea. But not a need. We have managed to come this far without a physical one, let's hope we'll manage a while longer however.. it would be cool if we had a place to perform sermons and such
    • a new toy for fitness (Last post by RyuJin)
    • actually it begins by saying "ready, fight".... you can find them at walmart...i don't know if they have that store in brazil
    • 2015-2016 Sermon Schedule (Last post by Rosalyn J)
    • Bump! We've still got a lot of sermon spots available. I'm looking forward to seeing what you all have to say. Let me know via pm if you want to be put on the calendar
    • I think people are falling for it (Last post by Yabuturtle)
    • Quote: I don't dismiss conspiracy theorists outright, there's always a lot of shady stuff going on, in fact I've been attacked for being a 9/11 "truther" (how wanting to seek out the truth became a bad thing is beyond me), I just understand from my own experience that one needs to be careful how deep one peers into the rabbit-hole before one falls in. 9/11 traumatized me to a degree where I spent over a decade an absolute wreck of anxiety and fear of my own government. Even now that I have overcome the obsession of digging through information (and misinformation) trying desperately to learn a whole picture of "the truth", I still have bouts of anxiety. Meditation and focus on the grander scale of life over the millennia and eons before and after human existence have helped me to gain some perspective, and calm those inner obsessions. I don't want any single person on this planet to have to suffer, and knowing that it happens at the hands of manipulators who use entire nations like chess pieces is hard enough, but then you add misinformation campaigns into the mix and it becomes nearly impossible to tell fact from fiction. So instead I tend to focus on truth, and the truth is that there have always been places and times where sinister schemes were carried out by people with power, and there likely always will be. And if it ever seems like "they" are winning (again falling into us vs. them thinking) it's only a swing of the pendulum; it always swings back around. When people do "evil" things (so to speak), it is because they are ignorant of their own true nature, and there will always be ignorance. The thing is it always bothers me whenever I try asking questions. Whenever someone questions the official story, you see the media and the people have this "How dare you question your government?" mentality? I thought it was good to ask questions but apparently now that seems to be looked down upon. And really world domination isn't really much of a stretch considering almost every major empire in history has attempted to do that in the past. And also it's rather practical to fabricate some things. I mean that's old trick civilizations used before. You create a problem, than you step up with a "solution" to the problem you created and so people will look toward you and do pretty much anything to have this solution, even if it means giving up your freedoms. People will wonder why haven't they forced everyone in submission, but the thing is force really isn't that effective. For one thing, there's way more civilians than military folk and when you use force, the people fight back and eventually take back what was stolen from them. But tricking the people into being disarmed and giving up their freedoms is more effective and practical even if it takes longer. Freedoms can never be taken away unless the people willingly give them away. And as for information, that's a strategy they like to use is to overload the people with so much information and sometime put out half truths out there so people won't know what's true or false though.
