disciplines

this is a challenge to myself

title: justify semantics
summary: This is the last lie Elle will believe in.
notes: so a looong time ago there was this writing community where they’d post prompts for every single day of the month. back then, i actually kept up and often wrote something for it everyday. turns out that the comm still posts themes, so i thought, why not try doing that again? this is the first part of my attempt to.

The Disciplines Directory 
(This post will be updated with each new entry on the list!)

(With plenty more posts in The Disciplines series coming, I felt that the best way to track them all/ direct people would be via a Directory post like my Fandom Digimon Directory. So. Here we go! (I can also shorten the links on the actual posts with this too.) 

Welcome to The Disciplines Masterpost! All of the posted/finished Disciplines should be listed here. They are, for the most part, arbitrarily sorted, so if you feel a discipline fits a different category feel free to inform me! All of the posted Disciplines are available for $5 each as 8.5″x5.5″ prints, and I also sell them at any conventions I may be tabling at!

The Disciplines are a project I wanted to undertake to try to help create more positive representation of women in the sciences (and as you can see, this project has grown since then). My goal is to try and really imbue each image with specific and important details from each field, and also to represent the largest variety of people that I can!

“JUDGE DISCIPLINES CHILD ACTUALLY TEEN (THERE IS A DIFFERENCE)”
I HAVE TO POST THIS BECAUSE PEOPLE TODAY ARE CRAZY.
THIS MAN DID NOTHING WRONG. LIKE YOU SHOULD KNOW YOUR CHILD AND IF YOUR CHILD CONTINUES TO DO SOMETHING WRONG AND YOU WANT TO GET A BELT THEN THAT IS FINE AS LONG AS YOU ARE NOT BEATING HER/HIM TO DEATH. SERIOUSLY LIKE I AM TIRED OF EVERYONE SAYING OH HE ABUSE HER. NO HE DID NOT!!! LIKE REALLY HE TOLD HER TO STOP DOWNLOADING ILLEGAL SHIT LIKE GAMES AND MUSIC SHE CONTINUE TO DO IT AND HE SPANKED HER WHOOPED HER WHATEVER YOU WANT TO CALL IT BUT SHE WAS NOT HURT BECAUSE SHE STILL WALKED AFTERWARD WITHOUT LIMPING. SHE IS A TEENAGER AND OBVIOUSLY OUT OF CONTROL. SHE KEPT THIS TAPE FOR 7 YEARS AND TIL THIS DAY HER FATHER WAS STILL PAYING HER BILLS BECAUSE HER FATHER TURNED HER PHONE OFF WHEN SHE DECIDED TO LEAK THIS VIDEO. LETS GET REAL SHE WANTED PUBLICITY AND SYMPATHY SO SHE CAN GET FAMOUS SMH!!! IF YOU DO NOT BELIEVE IN GETTING A BELT AND USING IT ON YOUR CHILD THAT IS FINE BUT DO NOT PATRONIZE SOMEONE WHO DOES BECAUSE IT IS NOT WRONG. IT IS NOT ABUSE AND IF YOU ASK ME SHE GOT IT GOOD BECAUSE I KNOW AND I HAVE HAD WORST SPANKINGS THAN THAT.
GO AHEAD AND SAY WHAT YALL THINK?
The Long Road to Guild Wars 2

Next week, ArenaNet will do an Asura Week, with a full week of articles about the Asura, with videos, pictures and lore.

Some people may think it means release is really close (or, at least, the open beta), as Asura is the last race to not have a full week yet and, after next week, all races will have their spotlight week. Also, you must know that ArenaNet never talks about stuff that isn’t done.

Except we are forgetting there are still stuff to be talked about.

  • Unknown Profession: There is one last profession to be announced, and to have a full week of discussion.
  • The Dungeons: So far, there was the announcement (and related week, with the Fan Open House week) of a single dungeon, Ascalonian Catacombs, but we know there will be more. There will be, at least, Sorrow’s Embrace. Guild Wars 2 lists 8 known dungeons. And you can guess they will do one week for each.
  • Disciplines: “Disciplines” is what other MMOs call “Professions”. There are 8 disciplines but I don’t think you can fill a whole week with a single discipline, so let’s imagine that it will take a full week just for disciplines, although I think they will split in 3 weeks (gathering disciplines, armor professions and everything else – just ‘cause there is no way to split into gathering, crafting and services, like in WoW).
  • Traits: We know a bit about traits, which let you change your skills behaviour (increasing effect time, damage or whatever related to it), but we know that they are doing some rework on it. So one can expect that there will be a “Traits Week” once they finalize the rework.

If ArenaNet makes a week for each of these points and then take a week of let things rest, we have at least 22 weeks till everything is considered “finalized”, which, following the order I put there, will make Traits Week on the week of 30 of January, at which point they will probably go into open beta.

Now I wish I’m completely wrong.

At any rate, the boundaries between disciplines, formed as much by principled distinctions as by academic battles over turf, are mostly meaningless. It follows that a philosopher cannot take those artificial limits into account, and that it should push multidisciplinary approaches to the limit. If that makes it lose its own identity as a field, so much the worse for those silly boundaries.

#Food

#fasting is very much a part of experiencing #infinite INNergy.

When #souls became entrapped in physical form, thus forgetting how to live directly from cosmic energy, food became a main source of energy. Most people believe they have to have food or they will perish.

As we evolve into Spiritual Intuitive Man/Wombman we will live and create directly from cosmic energy and less from food, water and air.

Most #spiritual practices include #disciplines with food. This is because food is a very dense way of receiving energy. In other words, it requires a lot of energy to digest and assimilate food in order to receive the life force energy from it. Therefore a diet that is light frees one’s energy for other uses.

Fruit day is one of the first disciplines a student in the #SchoolofMetaphysics learns about the true source of energy. The practice of only eating fruits and vegetables and drinking juices and water for two days a week is simple. This is the first time most people must come to terms with the cravings of the animal body and master them. When this is accomplished less energy is needed for digestion. For the student, energy previously spent on assimilating food is now free to be used elsewhere. Through this the will is developed. Mastery of the will is one of the strengths of Spiritual Intuitive Man. Strong will is required to control and direct the human body with full awareness.

A discipline, in effect, is not first and of all the definition of a set of methods appropriate to a certain domain or a certain type of object. It is first the very constitution of this object as an object of thought, the demonstration of a certain idea of knowledge - in other words, a certain idea or the rapport between knowledge and a distribution of positions.
