De omnibus dubitandum
27 Aug 2009
I came across this today: Jedi Knight Training Event in Belfast!
A part of me really wants to go to this, just to see what it’s all about…. But another part of me – the part called reason – thinks it’s all a gimmicky scam.
“Rory, creative thinking expert and creator of Rory’s Story Cubes, will join me to offer Northern Ireland’s most exciting/only Jedi training event of 2009. Rory and I will explain the famous Jedi Mind-Trick by showing how to gain control over and from the minds of others. Rory will explore the subjects of Energy Psychology and Subtle Energy fields to gain modern insight in the mystical Force. I will then walk participants through the films to see those psychological skills Luke Skywalker gained in becoming a Jedi, and those Anakin lacked in his fall to the dark side.”
I wonder what the practical applications are in modern life. “These are not the tax return forms you are looking for….”
Update: Allen Baird, one of the event’s organisers, has responded in the comments. Be sure to read it, he makes a good point.
