    • Voting for a Jediism section on there. (Last post by OB1Shinobi)
    • totjo is appealing to me because the community is active and diverse and thoughtful it doesnt take a week or a month to get a reply on a topic and the quality of feedback is usually very high my life is pretty "lame" right now - i have a lot of studies to keep up with and not much of a social circle, so im online a lot and this is one of the places i check in regularly to get rewarding conversation probably as long as that can be found here i will be around to some extent, and im guessing a lot of others feel that way too personally, i want to hear what you have to say about life and living, and about how to be a "better" person and what that means it makes no difference to me how long youve had a username - i respect putting in real effort and sticking with obligations and commitments, but i look to people as leaders based on the leadership that i see much more than any sort of assumed reverence based on their sign up date
    • The Grateful Thread (Last post by Cabur Senaar)
    • One of my people had tonic seizure during group. It is scary every damned time. That said: It was one of my other clients who pointed the seizure out, lingering to see how it all worked out and how I was doing after. The medical staff responded very promptly and the clients left the room so the nurses could work without comment or question. The seizure was brief and she didn't hit her head on the floor like the other time. All told, it was the best possible response to a crappy situation. I am grateful for the grace everyone showed.
    • Rants far and wide (Last post by Edan)
    • I hate feeling like this. Just had to remind myself I really could go into a shop and buy milk because I suddenly had strong social anxiety. But saying that....
    • A Message (Last post by Jestor)
    • Sorry... "Fat Thumb Murphy" over here (me) locked another thread... :blush:... For those of you who don't know; Jestor breaks stuff, and if he can't fix it, we call Ren... :lol;, I fixed it...
    • The Force as described by a physicist? (Last post by Gisteron)
    • The limits of science lie where the limits of reality do. We can know things outside of that by other means, but inside those aforementioned bounds of reality all these means are incorporated deeply into science and neither anything more than it is required nor is anything less sufficient for within that realm.
    • 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.
    • 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
