I also come to realize some of what Fyxe has in mind is not just spiritual but cultural; perhaps not in practical ways, but I myself have proposed things here as hopeful unifying cultural pieces that weren't any more popular, or necessarily practical. At this point, I don't necessarily see how anything would even need to change, here, just some new bonus activities, it may prove rather stimulating, even promote greater enthusiasm in the existing programs as we learn and examine more!


This comes up every now and again, under various guises, and there is a brief spark of interest by those whom are interested, but almost as fast, if not faster than the "Yes" crowd can shuffle themselves into something resembling a formed group, the "No" crowd comes together to create a din of objection - they're too poor, too busy, too isolated, too shy, too injured, they don't relate to the suggestion, or any other reason why any given suggested act or motif that establishes a "unifying culture" is untenable to them.

and so, for the sake of the "individuals" we all wander back to our own separate paths, destined to meander aimlessly with whatever meager goals we can generate for ourselves....


Yeah, you have a point there, eternal ray of sunshine that you are :P

Of course it's not as though none of us have anything in common, here, already.

In any case, do you, Fyxe. Whatever floats your boat, as they say, just make sure it doesn't sink someone else's :P

We have such a - free will- type of ability to choose so many avenues the option to do nothing always seems - present. If you hang out with those who like the color red - don’t be surprised at the color of shirt they give you. The same can be said for who we “yolk” or hang out with. After a while we tend - I know I do - tend to start acting like them. It has its good and its bad.

Balance is always needed with almost anything. The Myth is no exception. Find your myths. Find your real ones. If it’s Star Wars then it’s SW if it’s Star Trek then it’s Trek- if it’s a hobbits type of deal - then it’s that and it can even be a mix of real - current or fantasy myths. The idea is to give options to MAKE those choices and grow from them- never NOT grow. Spiritually if ya need help - I’m Pastor here and we have lots of clergy who can help ya find your nitch or at least give ya some encouragement.

Well here's a practical idea.

Please ask the person in charge of the forum to create a new forum for "Star Wars Mythos". And a few starter threads like "Luke", "Yoda", "Kenobi", "Anakin", etc. Those who want to talk about certain characters and their role and journey, can in a more serious way than currently afforded in the fan forum. Jedi who choose to can also add their own name and share their own wisdom while still keeping their personal journals private. They can easily copy and past things they want to share from their private journal to their public thread. This way everyone isn't so walled off. You can add another thread for Jedi vs Sith ideology where that can be debated in the context of the mythos. And all participation is voluntary. If people use it, cool. If they don't, cool. But I think it would be good to make it an option. If other religions can be represented and have serious places to talk about the bible I see no reason not to do the same for the mythos that inspires us all.

Would this not all fall under the 'Jediism' Forum? Given that already is the place for our religion to be represented and discussed in a serious space?

My friend, you may have a point there.
