    From: Being, loathing, confusion and our relationships with avatars, 2008, July 18


    Adams Rubble: I read somewhere recently (maybe in a chat log?) that we have the potential for over 100 separate characters in our brains
    Fael Illyar: I suppose it went with the remains of my habitual thinking in words
    Adams Rubble: I don’t remember the number
    Fael Illyar: 150 probably?
    Adams Rubble: more like it
    Gaya Ethaniel: how is that possible? I can only manage one.... :(
    Adams Rubble thinks she may have read more novels while Fael is reading technical literature?
    Fael Illyar: 150 is the number of people we can know well enough to predict what they will do or say
    Adams Rubble: Is that it Fael?
    Gaya Ethaniel: So capacity to understand how many people?
    Fael Illyar: Wouldn't surprise me that it can be used for different selves too. Yes.
    Gaya Ethaniel: Thought you meant I can act out 150 different characters.
    Adams Rubble: Imaginary characters then reduce the number of people one can know then :)
    Fael Illyar: Most likely :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: Do you mean you can act out an character by understanding such?
    Adams Rubble: Actors do. Adams isn't completely an actor. But Adams has some of her own personality.
    Adams Rubble thinks and has less baggage!!!
    Fael Illyar: But had been slowly diverging but apparently merging again?
    Adams Rubble: Both
    Fael Illyar: Ah, merging but diverging at once :)
    Adams Rubble: No, like a pendulum. No not that.
    Gaya Ethaniel: Don't think we are doing quite what pendulum is doing here
    Adams Rubble: bigger pendulum's use gravity too. Fael was referring to me and my RL self
    Gaya Ethaniel: ah...
    Fael Illyar: Me, myself and I :P
    Adams Rubble: In small talk it can be Adams talking. In big talk my RL self pushes me aside and takes over. A bit rude sometimes :)
    Fael Illyar: finds that "rude" part amusing :)
    Adams Rubble: Think of it Fael and Gaya. If your RL person wants to do something in RL, they just abandon you wherever you are. Just like that, abandon. Then when they want to SL, they expect you to be ready to go.
    Fael Illyar can't make sense of the idea.
    Fael Illyar doesn't feel like there is something to be left behind.
    Adams Rubble: You have to get up and be all ready to walk or fly or tp
    Gaya Ethaniel: don't quite understand you Adams :(
    Adams Rubble: No "are you ready to get up now?"
    Adams Rubble doesn’t think she can unionize Fael and Gaya
