Question by Squashed Orange: Was Jesus a mystic? He willed life into people just like a mystic? He told religious mysteries (parables)?

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/mystic

mystic
–adjective
1. involving or characterized by esoteric, otherworldly, or symbolic practices or content, as certain religious ceremonies and art; spiritually significant; ethereal.
2. of the nature of or pertaining to mysteries known only to the initiated: mystic rites.
3. of occult character, power, or significance: a mystic formula.
4. of obscure or mysterious character or significance.
5. of or pertaining to mystics or mysticism.
–noun
6. a person who claims to attain, or believes in the possibility of attaining, insight into mysteries transcending ordinary human knowledge, as by direct communication with the divine or immediate intuition in a state of spiritual ecstasy.
7. a person initiated into religious mysteries.

Doesn’t that describe Jesus?

Well, it seems that the Bible miracles aren’t happening, but the transfer of energy among all life is happening. When someone put his hands around my heels once, my heels started to get very warm as if they were on fire. This was about 20 days after Yoga already took the soreness from my legs. The man (healer?) told me my leg just grew out at the same time. That took place at some church service starring Dan Mohler. I didn’t see it grow out, but I also didn’t have a good angle of viewing. What do you think that miracle was? An act of God, of course. But how did it happen is the question. Perhaps it happened the same way that Yoga transfers energy. So is Reiki and miraculous healing the same? Why do I hear all these rumors of different spirits and that even the evil ones can heal? Then is it better to never want to heal people because of the risk that we might just heal by using an evil spirit disguised as an angel of Light? Were the 11 apostles who healed mystics then? Then Paul showed up after the ascension — was he a mystic? A mystic “wills” life back into people and “wills” others to be healed.

Question by .: Why should the Universal dynamics/evolution allow for the emergence of Life?
Or is Life (and any manifestation of associated “consciousness”) ultimately just as random and “meaningless” of a phenomenon, as far as the Universe is concerned, as the dynamics of inanimate objects?

Question by Astone: in real life can alchemy only be used 4 turning stone into gold or can it be used like in Full Metal Alchemist
also/or can you tell me how to BECOME an alchemist?

Best answer:

Answer by bugsie
In real life IF alchemy could be used to turn rock or medal into GOLD, then every one would be an Alchemist.
The truth is that it is a marvelous fable, like Robin Hood, or Atlantis the lost city, or The Holy Grail!
In the 21century, any one can with good grades and the will power go to a private or State University and major in some Chemistry field, this will qualify you to call your self an Alchemist, which is only the mid evil term for Chemist.
I have taken college chemistry courses out of need, I hope if you enjoy chemistry you take them out of want for a better future for you and the people you can potentially help by becoming a chemical engineer or a pharmacist etc.

Question by Sian: Which course is more important when applying for Life Sciences: Physics or Calculus?
Hi, I’m planning my grade twelve courses now (I go to an Ontario high school) and I’m debating whether I should take SPH4U (Physics) or MCV4U (Calculus and Vectors). I want to apply to McMaster and UTM (University of Toronto, Mississauga) for the Life Sciences undergraduate program. Which do these universities look for more and which will better prepare me?

P.S. I’m in the International Baccalaureate Diploma program which doesn’t give me enough space to take both, I’m gonna be taking this in summer school as it is :D

Question by John S: Any good books about a fox that is relatively about life in the wild?
I love foxes and reading is pretty nice. Any good books where they follow a fox in the wild or something where you can get an idea of life as one. The only one I know is “Hunted” by N. Browne. Thanks

Best answer:

Answer by YoSafBridg
one or two of these might work:

The fox woman
In a novel set in medieval Japan, a young fox kit becomes enamored with a Japanese nobleman and will stop at nothing, even magic and sorcery, to win his heart.

The plague dogs by Richard Adams
A large black mongrel named Rowf and a white terrier named Snitter escape from an animal experiment center in England’s Lake District and, aided by a cunning fox, learn to live on their own, until rumors of slaughtered sheep and bubonic plague-carrying dogs transform them into fugitives.

The foxes of firstdark
This novel by a Booker Prize nominee is an engaging saga of two lovers paired for life, bound by strong family ties and firmly united by their terror of a common enemy. A familiar scenario, perhaps, but here the devoted couple is a pair of foxes–O-ha, a vixen born in the British countryside, and her second mate, Camio, who, after escaping from the zoo, becomes a streetwise scavenger in the suburbs. O-ha’s first mate was killed by fox hunters and her initial litter froze to death. Her life with Camio in Trinity Wood is equally hazardous; daily survival is difficult. Yet the most ominous threat is from Sabre, a vengeful ridgeback hound bent on destroying them both. The author endows his anthropomorphized characters with complex emotions, clear thinking, reasoned judgment and a shared stock of ancient clan memories. Their adventures and the misadventures of their pups are seen through a framework of their own mythology, a world governed by rituals and traditions that began at the time of creation: firstdark. A true sense of peril, a wry observance of their other enemy, man, some quixotic digressions into the lives of their offspring and avoidance of sentimentality all combine to invite comparison to Watership Down.

9tail Fox by Jon Courtenay Grimwood
Grimwood, best known for his alternate-history Arabesk trilogy (Effendi, etc.), manages a new wrinkle on a classic noir plot line with this intriguing paranormal mystery. San Francisco police sergeant Bobby Zha refuses to accept the department’s conclusion that Natalie Persikov, a young Russian girl who has no familiarity with firearms, managed to kill an intruder, but he himself is gunned down in a sordid back alley before he can prove Persikov’s innocence. After experiencing a mystical vision of a nine-tailed white fox, Zha regains consciousness in another man’s body, a continent away from everything he knows. Using his new identity, Zha returns home in time to attend his own funeral and investigate his own murder.

Spirit Fox by Mickey Zucker Reichert and Jennifer Wingert
In a magic-filled land, Kiarda, a woman of noble lineage, absorbs the spirit of her birth-linked fox at his moment of death and almost leads her people to the brink of war.

The old country by Mordicai Gerstein
A grandmother tells her story of being tricked into exchanging her young body with that of a fox and trying to get it back while a war tore apart her home and her country.

A taste for rabbit by Linda Zuckerman
Quentin, a rabbit who lives in a walled compound run by a militaristic government, must join forces with Harry, a fox, to stop the sinister disappearances of outspoken and rebellious rabbit citizens.

Troll Bridge: a rock ‘n’ roll fairy tale by Jane Yolen and Adam Stemple
Sixteen-year-old harpist prodigy Moira is transported to a strange and mystical wilderness, where she finds herself in the middle of a deadly struggle between a magical fox and a monstrous troll.

Question by Anteater: Which cheap mobile phone (available in the UK) would you say has the longest battery life?
I’m currently looking for a mobile phone for a camping trip that I’m going on. I have the LG Viewty at the moment, and the battery is rubbish, so I need a temporary replacement.
