Not enough power generation. You have to understand young Josh, the energy we seek is not for mere plumbing and gadget purposes; it is a great deal more intricate than that.

Not to mention that while a great idea, solar panels will take up the majority of land, as would wind turbines, decreasing our capacity to build OVERTOP of the site in the future.

I believe that the ability to use one of the silos for food generation would be benficial, perhaps using hydroponic techniques for vegetables and such, and perhaps breeding fish as a source of protein.

With enough planning, it would be possible to use the facilities rather than the land above.

A service we may be able to provide to the outside world could be protection of objects for interested (and honest) parties. A silo could be used for secure storage. Given its disposition, its attractiveness to those interested would fetch valuable financial resources, which we could use for other purposes, perhaps medical research, materials research, search and rescue training, food distribution missions.

Whatever the money would be put to good use.

I gauruntee that should we do that, a lot more doors will open for us to do even more good for this world. It won't all happen overnight; but we keep our wits focused and there is no telling what can be accomplished.

Everyone has talents. Some tangible talent that they can or do use in thier personal lives, professional lives, or both.

I get computers. I see them not as simple hardware and connected nodes. I see a vast neural network that spans an entire planet. I see computers as a rudimentary copy of the basic functions of mankind. Collectively, I see the beginnings of mankinds greatest, and possibly final (doesnt have to be), creation.

A fully synthetic consciousness. I am actually working on some quantum processor models that could handle that kind of anti-programming, or as i like to call it, intentional code conflict/collision (IC3). Its complicated.

Along with that, I spent ten years sitting along side my father, who was a mechanical engineer for 35 years. i don't have a degree (working on it), but I picked up a lot from him. If I were to construct a structure, I could do so myself, or know the assistance I would need should I not be able to accomplish it on my own.

What talents do you have? How would you use them here?

Lets assess our collective resources, see where that goes.

There may not be any eccentric rich jedi out there...for the simple fact that the rich have usually shown their alligience to the almighty dollar than to the matters of the spirit.

That being said, there are creative solutions to everything.I am studying IT and have somewhat of a background in engineering, electronics, among a number of talents. There have to be others that have talents that could lead to the aquisition of such funds.

It is either that or we recruit someone who can help. Which is not a good idea because of the problems it would create from many different angles.

Additional Note:

Karen brings up a good point as well. People will accept us when it is the path of the Jedi that saved them. Human nature is pretty selfish like that for the most part (so take off the rose colored glasses) and if it doesn't benefit them in some way, they usually aren't accepting of anything at all. It is an unfortunate state that mankind has fallen into, but it is the one they have fallen into of thier own accord none-the-less.

And furthermore, acceptance is the least of a jedi's worries. If one wants acceptance because of ones needs for personal acceptance, this is the wrong place for that and I would question any jedi's motivation and integrity who believed that such acceptance is crucial.

Our goal is to live up to our teachings - of which the protection of justice, peace, and order are of the highest concern.

And then there is the other issue Karen spoke of. Those who have felt the ripples in the force surely know of what she speaks. That is our concern right now.

JW brings up a good point here.

Some people won't wake up for themselves.

If there are Jedi that wish to spread the ideas of the Jedi path, then one should do so. But understand this very clearly:

We are on a website, for the very reason that people don't understand us in the first place. For many of us, we have tried to be understood since our childhoods. Likewise, because of our nature, we have tried to understand this world as well.

The result is a site where people can come of their own free will when seeking such answers. They are given an avenue to explore that which guides them to what they may seek. But it is up to them to decide.

So don't get lost in philosophical debates, trying to convince someone of your validity, because the choice is up to them. Additionally, the Jedi who engages in the "aggressive" waking of people to our ways faces the danger of becomeing driven by repeated failures. No Jedi should want that.

However - we are not a cloistered order. We show more openess for a reason; the very reason we have a website as well. We are not understood; yet instead of setting us of to the side as others have done, we open our arms.

Wake up who you can JW, if the force has granted you that gift. But remember that most people come out of their sleep pretty aggressivly when woken forcefully. Don't be suprised when you aren't met with the best of attitudes.

I see nothing wrong with one of mankinds mistakes being used for honorable purposes. It suits our needs.

When the appropriate time comes, which only the force will reveal to us.

The path of the Jedi is revealed to those it wishes to reveal itself to. Some seek it, and find us. Some are found. Regardless, recruitment is not what we should be focusing on; at least not as a come one, come all situation.

And the truth is, we have a lot more important things to contend with. There are people out there who need help, and we can't help them right now. Recruitment should not be dismissed, but we have to start identifying persons that are skilled and put those skills to work.

What does all this have to do with discretion? Well, we have work to do, and right now, its nobody's business. Discretion is necessary in a world that may not understand us. Misunderstandings lead to intervention, intervention will disrupt our goals. We cannot afford for that to happen, so we remain under the radar.
