Location Sketch: White Room

Overview:The white room is located inside a research facility owned by the XXXXXX. The facility is ran by Dr. XXXXXX, and his assistant XXXXX. The room is 8X8 square, made from titanium and painted with white high gloss paint. The titanium plates cover each wall, the floor, and the ceiling, and are nearly seamless, so that the room appears to be a solid white box from end to end, top to bottom. There is no apparent door. The door exists, but it cannot be seen or felt until it is opened. There is a place to lay down, which slides out from the wall. Three times a day, a small door, no larger than an iPad, opens, and a tray of food is inside. Box inside this door is equally seamless, and back lit by a small LED light. The door stays open until the tray is placed back, and then closes. There is a table, which also rises on it’s own from the ground as one solid piece, no legs, just a large rectangular box that rises out of the ground. On the table is a small white cardboard box, wr…

Location Sketch: Sriklan Islands

Sri-Klan Islands (need a new name)Somewhere in the Pacific Ocean, south of Hawaii, even with Australia and Mexico. Large grouping of small islands, hidden from even the most sophisticated maps.Climate:Beaches are comprised of Quartz Sand, white in color, and cool the touch, even on the hottest day. Tropical, near equator? Buildings, once used by the Japanese during WWII prior to the attack on Pearl Harbor, now owned and used by the USA for Top Secret training exercises. Only the most elite train here, and even they don’t know where it is. The buildings are kept in full operational use, and often rebuilt after training causes collateral damage.Landscape:Peppered with Cherry Blossom Trees, Palms, Oak, and Spruce. A reminder of many former residents.No large beasts, there are monkeys, birds, reptiles, sea turtles. Each Island is within visibility of another, barely. One could swim from one to another, however, white sharks are known to travel out this far and visit nearby reefs. Atta…

Island Wake Up Call

Ash came to himself blinded by a terrible light, which hurt his eyes. He rolled over onto his belly, and planted his face into his pillow... No, this wasn't a pillow, it was... sand? He accidentally breathed some in and began coughing uncontrollably. He would have to get his bearings, but first he'd have to get his senses. He rose to his hands and knees and calmed his mind, slowed his heart rate. Focus. That's what he needed right now. His eyes still hurt too much to open, but he didn't need them just yet.

Birds. Sand. Wind in trees. Water washing ashore in a quiet steady cadence. He was back on the island? The sand between his fingers was cold to the touch, but the sun on his back and face was quite warm. These had to be white sand islands. He was back to the training center? Had he ever left? What happened.... wait... What is that?


Eta was thrashing around, blindly looking for something or someone to attack. It was only after she ran out of breath that she r…

Discovery | Exploring My Experiences

Discuss ONE experience for each of the following:
A Rewarding Ministry Experience. Once, when leading a group for the Christian Club on Campus, at College of the Desert, I (and the group) laid hands on a young lady, and she received the baptism of the Holy Spirit and began speaking in other tongues. That was the first moment I saw that something bigger than me was possible. God really could use me. And it frightened me, as much as it thrilled me.

A Gratifying Personal Achievement. Publishing Banking Basics for Believers. A woman I didn't know, was informed by a friend of mine to read it. I gave her a copy, my gift. She said that it helped her personally and professionally understand money in a new way. She was doing the job I had been doing when I started writing it. She felt that it should be mandatory reading. What an amazing circle of experience.

A Touching Relationship Experience.Hearing my wife (to be at the time) pray in tongues for the first time. It was the first time I fou…

Your Primary Spiritual Gifts Descriptions Spiritual Gifts are supernatural motivations given to every believer. Everyone doesn't receive the same gift. Just as many parts of the human body work together as one, so Spiritual Gifts are given to the Body of Christ to serve as one.

Their purpose is to encourage and mature Christians for more effective ministry. These gifts are featured based upon their functional and practical use.
Christians with the Gift of Teaching prefer explaining why things are true. While the prophet declares truth, the teacher explains the reasons why it is true. Interested in research, those with the Gift of Teaching like to dig into seemingly insignifi…

Discovery | D.I.S.C

In the D.I.S.C inventory: I am a C -Conscientiousness.Take the DISC assessment here. The disc assessment divides the personality traits into Outgoing (D/I) and Reserved (S/C) and then divides again into People Driven (I/S) and Task Driven (D/C). All people will likely score some in each of the four quadrants. The test then shows "The Real You" and the "The way you behave".

I show a strong preference toward the C in both inward tendencies, and outward behaviors. I also show some leaning in the D/S, but VERY little in the I.

People with the C style place an emphasis on working conscientiously within existing circumstances to ensure quality and accuracy.

People with the D style place an emphasis on shaping the environment by overcoming opposition to accomplish results.

People with the S style place an emphasis on cooperating with others within existing circumstances to carry out the task..

People with the i style place an emphasis on shaping the environment by infl…

Discovery | Strengths Deployment Inventory (SDI)

Strengths Deployment Inventory (SDI)

This can be explained in some detail here.

The way I was taught this. There are three basic personality types. Pictographed as a triangle. These personality types are based on group and organizational behavior. In other words, as people interact, how might they behave within this setting?

Blue - The Ambulance. Always seeking to be a help to others.
These people are often attracted to nursing, or aide positions. They are the helpers, and care takers of the group. Red - The Bulldozer. Rising up to lead - to win.
Natural leaders. If there is one red in the group, it's strongly likely that the red took charge. They have the goal in front of them, and they know how to delegate and get the job done. 
Green - The Submarine. Quietly getting things done. Thing Excel.
Thinkers. Often accountants, or programmers. They are generally (but not always) the quite ones. They do the work others don't want to, or can't. Often highly skilled. 
HUB - The Food…

Discovery | 16 Base Pairs

The 16 Personality Types:
I've grown as a person, able to provide more honest answers than my younger years. Early in life, I tested as an ENFP. However, I don't know if my personality changed in my older years, or if I'm just more honest about who I am now... but my results differed this time. And the descriptions for my results are nearly perfectly on target. Or, maybe I was more honest then? I came up with several. EVERYONE is a bit of all of these things. It's the balance of all potential human reactions to this test. This is about tendencies and preferences.

The Theory of IE,NS, TF, JPExtrovert vs Introvert - Affects Human Interaction
E -Extrovert: Tends to draw energy from human interactions, time alone leaves them feeling drained and in need of interaction.

I - Introvert: Tends to draw energy from time alone, time with people tends to leave them feeling drained and in need of solitude.

INtuitive vs ObServant (Sensing) - Affects how we perceive the world around us.…
