|Welcome to the Temple of the Jedi Force
|Posted by AceVenom on 2015/5/21 19:50:00 (5824 reads)
Welcome new members and visitors to our web site.
In this site there are forums to discuss numerous topics and ideas with other members of the Temple. Members are given access to more forum topics than that of a visitor. Visitors can see most of the basic items, but to see more registration is necessary.
Visitors can spend time looking at the FAQ's or Frequently Asked Questions, Links, Planet, News and Articles, our Doctrine and Basic Message Boards. All of these are accessible via the links listed on the community menu on the left of the page.
If you chose to be a member, all you need to do is register for the site. Please let one of the Masters know if this gives you any difficulty, or submit a help ticket (also in the community menu).
If you choose to start the path of a Jedi, there are more Message Boards which become available as well as Study Downloads to begin the path of the Way of the Jedi and to help explain how Temple of the Jedi Force practices and teaches Jediism. You will want to start by making an introduction post in the Jedi Initiate Resources area and request to become an initiate. One of the Masters will review your request, update your membership status, and give you your next set of instructions.
While you wait to have your membership upgraded to initiate, please familiarize yourself with our doctrine by reviewing our Temple Doctrine.
Once your membership has been updated to initiate, please create a training journal by posting in the Jedi Training Journals area of our forums. In your training journal your first post should be to re-introduce yourself, tell us what brought you to our temple, what you hope to learn here, and why you want to become a Jedi.
To complete the Initiate's requirements for Apprenticeship, you will need to complete the following:
Meditating on and describe, in a line-by line analysis format, The Jedi code, The Jedi creed, The 3 Primary Tenants of Jediism, The 16 Teachings of the Jedi, and The 13 Vows of the Jedi.
In this analysis, please include your current understanding of the line being analyzed and, if you wish to go the extra mile, how you can/are work(ing) to implement this understanding in your day-to-day life. Please be as elaborate and as thorough as possible, relating any experiences that you have had with them. Please pace yourself with these works, and remember that this is not a race. This is about the journey, and not the destination. This is how you will come to know us, and how we will come to know you. You are not under any deadline to complete this aspect of your journal.
Also, please take some time to consider and answer the following questions: Who are you, and how did you find this Temple? Why do want to become a Jedi? What brought you to this conclusion? If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.
Namaste, and again Welcome to the Temple of the Jedi Force!

|Is The Universe A Hologram?

Is The Universe A Hologram?
A team of physicists has provided some of the clearest evidence yet that our Universe could be just one big projection.
In 1997, theoretical physicist Juan Maldacena proposed that an audacious model of the Universe in which gravity arises from infinitesimally thin, vibrating strings could be reinterpreted in terms of well-established physics. The mathematically intricate world of strings, which exist in nine dimensions of space plus one of time, would be merely a hologram: the real action would play out in a simpler, flatter cosmos where there is no gravity.

I am a link in Lord Buddha’s golden chain of love that stretches around the world.
I must keep my link bright and strong.
I will try to be kind and gentle to every living thing, and protect all who are weaker than myself.
I will try to think pure and beautiful thoughts, to say pure and beautiful words, and to do pure and beautiful deeds, knowing that on what I do now depends my happiness and misery.
May every link in Lord Buddha’s golden chain of love become bright and strong and may we all attain perfect peace.
-- Buddhist Prayer
Happy Sunday everyone.

|oldCode of Conduct

Do conduct yourself in a professional manner
We support forum members engaging in constructive debate, disagreeing with the opinions of others, or requesting further information or even the citation of references. We do, however, expect this to be done in a respectful manner and without personal attacks. If you don't agree with somebody's post, argue with the post's content, not with the person who made it.
Do not troll our forums
Posting with the specific intent of stirring up trouble or inciting disruption will not be tolerated.
Do not post inappropriate content
We will not tolerate messages or photos containing such things as sexually explicit (or pornographic), obscene, vulgar, hateful, threatening or illegal content. This includes your avatar, signature, and all other content you are sharing with our site.
Do not attack other members
The posting of negative remarks based on age, race, weight, ethnicity, religion, or sexual orientation is not appropriate.
Do not take it upon yourself to moderate our forum
Allow our moderators to do all the moderating of the forum. It is not your job to outline the rules to other members, admonish them, or discuss their behavior even when they are acting inappropriately. If you have an issue, please send a private message to one of our moderators or to the administrator of the site.
Do not be offended by moderator actions
It is not uncommon for members participating in the forum to have a moderator make a suggestion, discuss behavior, or attempt to steer a topic. Please try not to be offended by such moderation: it is not an attack. Please be considerate of the fact that we try to stay on-topic and keep a consistent culture for our site.
Do not debate or argue against moderator actions
It is inappropriate for you to debate or argue with a moderatorâ€™s actions. If you would like to discuss such actions or get further clarification on the matter, you must do so by messaging the moderating privately. Do not clutter the public forum with arguments or disagreements. Doing so will result in administrative action.
Do not make multiple accounts
Each person is allowed only a single account. Any attempt to make multiple accounts will result in the new ones being deleted. Any member making additional accounts with the purpose to act inappropriately or bypass administrative actions will result in a permanent ban.
Try to stay on-topic at all times
Try not to drift off-topic with a topic's conversation. Please don't join in with off-topic discussion even if others are. Instead, try starting a new topic and linking to it. Off-topic posts may get deleted or split from their originating topic.
Post similar questions together
If you have several questions that are related, it's better to ask them all in the one topic rather than to create additional topics for each one. Make use of the edit feature in your post to add more information.
Try to avoid duplicating topics already discussed
Use the forum's search function to check if the topic you wish to post exists in the forum already. It's very possible that a similar discussion has already taken place.
Use short, concise titles for your topics
When posting a new topic, it's a good idea to use a short, yet informative title, so other members can quickly ascertain its subject matter
Try not to double post
If you post additional identical replies/posts by mistake, please delete the duplicate replies by clicking the delete button found at the top of your duplicate post. Where you need to add more information on to your original reply, click edit at the top of your post and add more to it, instead of clicking reply and creating two replies.
Do not cross-post in multiple forums or multiple topics
Please do not cross-post the same topic to multiple forums or the same message to multiple topics. Post only in the most appropriate and on-topic place.
Do your best to format your posts for easy readability
Please format your posts and your topic subjects so that they are presented professionally and in a polished manner. Use appropriate punctuation and capitalization, proper capitalization, and avoid excessively using font styling such as bold, italics, and color. Typing in ALL-CAPS or all-bold is considered bad Internet etiquette, is difficult to read, and is considered shouting.
Please limit your posts to the English language
We are an English language site and all contributions are to be posted in English so that the large majority of our audience is able to enjoy them. Posts in other languages are difficult for the moderators to monitor. We unfortunately do not have the resources to be able to adequately cover other Other languages.
Do not use the private message system for critical messages
Critically important messages, confidential information, or details of a fragile or timely nature should not be transmitted to another member using the private message system. We can not be responsible for the loss of important messages or the potential of site-wide downtime leading to the unavailability of the system.
Do not abuse the right to advertise
Vendors, makers, and manufacturers are asked to limit their advertisements, announcements, and other marketing information to our "Makers and Manufacturers Talk" forum. To be allowed to post new topics to this forum, you must be a member of our Industry Professionals usergroup. Blatantly using the other forums for the purpose of marketing and advertisement is not acceptable.
