*The Guardian for this meeting was sophia Placebo. The comments are by sophia Placebo.*

Wol Euler: ain't nobody here but us chickens.

sophia Placebo: greetings

Wol Euler: hello :)

Wol Euler: nice outfit.

sophia Placebo: ty :)

sophia Placebo: seems that tp in sl today isnt working well

Wol Euler nods sadly. It was already messy last night (our night)

Wol Euler: they're doing another set of rolling server restarts, that always screws up the system for a few days until it all stabilizes

sophia Placebo: i see

Wol Euler: lag in SL is like rain in RL-Europe, you have to live with it :)

sophia Placebo: hehe

Wol Euler: how are you getting on, Sophia?

sophia Placebo: getting on what ?

Wol Euler grins and makes a vague gesture. Life, that stuff :)

Wol Euler: everything going well?

Wol Euler: oh dear. pop goes the sophia.

Wol Euler: wb

sophia Placebo: thnx

sophia Placebo: crash :)

Wol Euler nods

sophia Placebo: any great recent thoughts or observations ?

Wol Euler laughs. there's a challenge.

Wol Euler: I realized this morning that November is half over.

Wol Euler: the year is 7/8ths over.

Wol Euler: where did it go?

sophia Placebo: :)

sophia Placebo: some one eat it

Wol Euler: yeah, really.

Wol Euler: or I spent a few consecutive months asleep.

sophia Placebo: heeh hehe

--BELL--

Wol Euler: I booked myself into a work-related conference for mid-November, and I was still thinking "well, that is weeks away yet!"

sophia Placebo: i do that always ! thats why i didnt booked myself for anything until after december , it is just a feeling that the days are somewhat running , and i wont be able to catch them !

Wol Euler nods

Wol Euler: I might be able to attend the tuesday events, have to talk to the boss tomorrow

Wol Euler: otherwise it's money lost.

sophia Placebo: you didnt talk to the boss yet ?

Wol Euler: no, I truly just figured it out this morning!

Wol Euler shakes her head.

sophia Placebo: :) you really need to satrt running

Wol Euler: I do.

sophia Placebo: lol , ok , take a breath then

Wol Euler: it's funny, I have been writing hte date on documents every day all year, and yet I never connected "today is 13 November" to "there's a conference on the 16th"

sophia Placebo: hmm

sophia Placebo: sometimes we lost the sense of counting dates to the sense of how far it seems

Wol Euler nods

Wol Euler: like knowing that it's 8:30 but not realizing that means that we are late

sophia Placebo: yeah

sophia Placebo: it is only 8:30

Wol Euler: do you use a paper calendar on the wall, or digital?

sophia Placebo: we still have 15 mints to go from west to the east of the city

Wol Euler grins

sophia Placebo: nop i dont use any kind of documintations

Wol Euler: do you trust your memory that strongly? wow.

sophia Placebo: i guess i use to do that , should start document though , it makes events more organised

sophia Placebo: start to *

sophia Placebo: but usually there are scheduals for each event

sophia Placebo: like given paper with date time and place of one event

Wol Euler nods

Wol Euler: hello yakuzza

sophia Placebo: Hi Yak !

Yakuzza Lethecus: hey everyone

Yakuzza Lethecus: topic ?

sophia Placebo: how are you ?

Wol Euler: we're talking about calendars and events and how to keep track of time

sophia Placebo: time

Yakuzza Lethecus: fine, thx i hope you guys are also well

Wol Euler: quite well, thanks, enjoying a day off

Yakuzza Lethecus: yes, thats also an issue for me

sophia Placebo: im alive so far !

Wol Euler: :)

--BELL--

Yakuzza Lethecus: kabat zinn once said in his mindfulness for beginners, we are more well then damaged as long as we breath :P

Wol Euler: true

sophia Placebo: :)

Yakuzza Lethecus: i also try to keep track of the events and possibilities in sl with calendar and s

Yakuzza Lethecus: schedule

Yakuzza Lethecus: i am even logged on twice often at 1 pm slt

Yakuzza Lethecus: because most of the good events happen at the same time

Wol Euler smiles

Yakuzza Lethecus: and i try to reduce SL time in general

Yakuzza Lethecus: but i think i am back to a healthy level now

sophia Placebo: hehe

Wol Euler: hmmmm, did you think your previous level was unhealthy (too high)?

Yakuzza Lethecus: but i skip places now, what even sometimes provided my with something unexpected

Yakuzza Lethecus: but was pretty much a waste of time often

Yakuzza Lethecus: yes, i thought it was

Yakuzza Lethecus: but the exploring was great right now i am more back to an habitual level

Yakuzza Lethecus: where i just visit the places i found by the time i came to sl

Wol Euler nods

Yakuzza Lethecus: like TLE, KIRA and thothica

Yakuzza Lethecus: k thephilosophyclass is still great

Yakuzza Lethecus: but i visit that place most of the time with my alt acc

Yakuzza Lethecus: since it´s 1 am

Yakuzza Lethecus: most of the time tuesdays and thursdays

Yakuzza Lethecus: and then is pab overlapping with gilles on wednesdays

sophia Placebo: you really have schedual !

Yakuzza Lethecus: so it would be great to do those things right away

sophia Placebo: hmm yak

Yakuzza Lethecus: please ?

sophia Placebo: any great thoughts or observations recently ?

Wol Euler smiles

Yakuzza Lethecus: nothing great

Yakuzza Lethecus: i should increase the level of concentration on the sessions

sophia Placebo: hmm

Wol Euler: how so, yaku?

Yakuzza Lethecus: so only things on general interest in my habits of being in SL and pab

Yakuzza Lethecus: i still don´t know whats healty in my daily habits

Yakuzza Lethecus: and i always try to create more habits which aren´t static

--BELL--

Wol Euler: wb again :)

Yakuzza Lethecus: so, i changed some of my habits over the last year, after work i don´t hear radio in my car i try to hear lectures on topics i don´t have a specific interest in but would be nice to have heard about

sophia Placebo: thnx again :)

Wol Euler nods

Yakuzza Lethecus: or things i had an opinion about but actually now true information but my prejudices

Yakuzza Lethecus: i even heard something about literature :)

Yakuzza Lethecus: i never read a book and even right now i am stuck with podcasts and audiobooks

Yakuzza Lethecus: but it´s fine i finally make it through those and the don´t get dusty in the cupboard :)

Wol Euler: it's the concepts that count, a "book" is just packaging.

Yakuzza Lethecus: bookshelf

sophia Placebo: you need mind to read books not books to make mind

Yakuzza Lethecus: yes, how to find something in books which i am thinking about

Yakuzza Lethecus: so it´s hard so get the right answers to idea´s and questions for me out of the internet in a written form

Yakuzza Lethecus: and the value of accidental learning increased for me :)

Wol Euler smiles and nods

sophia Placebo: hmm

Yakuzza Lethecus: can you elaborate on the hmmm ? :)

sophia Placebo: you seems like running after something

Yakuzza Lethecus: yes, and i think that is exactly what i am supposed to appreciate right now

Yakuzza Lethecus: i mean the curiosity

Yakuzza Lethecus: in fact this place is much about what i describe as accidental learning

sophia Placebo: how is accidental learning ? enjoyable ? unexpected ? chaotic?

Wol Euler: :)

Yakuzza Lethecus: it´s sad that ur the only one out of an arabic context here

Yakuzza Lethecus: but it´s very international

Yakuzza Lethecus: many highly educated people which i am unable to talk on topic often

Yakuzza Lethecus: but i have to google many things :)

Yakuzza Lethecus: so sadly it´s biased with western culutre

Yakuzza Lethecus: culture

Yakuzza Lethecus: even when we have many people interested in eastern conteplative study :)

Yakuzza Lethecus: but still we´re 90% western cutlure

Yakuzza Lethecus: and i don´t even know if i count korea not as western culture

sophia Placebo: i dont see you as westerners untill you start talk about weather or politics

Wol Euler chuckles

Wol Euler: we are all SL-culturists in a way

Yakuzza Lethecus: i mean even to think i cathegories as western or not western is an negative abstraction

sophia Placebo: not at all

Yakuzza Lethecus: like thinking about east and westgermans :)

Wol Euler: we share a few attributes and habits that are very unusual in our "outside" cultures

Yakuzza Lethecus: it´s better to just think on topic in the moment

sophia Placebo: take as hmm first answer that comes to mind to a question

--BELL--

sophia Placebo nods to Wol

Yakuzza Lethecus: mindfullness and being more judgemental on the moment is

Yakuzza Lethecus: hello visitor

sophia Placebo: Hi visitor!

sophia Placebo: sometimes habits is all there to unify a group of poeple

sophia Placebo: and habits sometimes is all there to make them think they are diffrent

Wol Euler: it is :)

Yakuzza Lethecus: right

sophia Placebo: :)

Wol Euler: they often run over the 60 minutes

Wol Euler: the record is 7.5 hours :)

Yakuzza Lethecus: actually i

sophia Placebo cant imagine a session that long

Yakuzza Lethecus: isn´t it only supposed to be 30 minutes ?

Wol Euler: well, the guardian is supposed to attend for at least 30 minutes.

Wol Euler: it's up to her/him how long to actually stay.

Yakuzza Lethecus: i know that everyone stays the hour but i remembered that there was something with the 30 min :)

Visitor: I love to join you...and I would love to participate, what I'm not fond of is the recording...

Wol Euler: the TOS requires that we ask about the recording. May we print your name and comments in the published record of this meeting?

Yakuzza Lethecus: ok, i got to go, take care you both

Yakuzza Lethecus: cya in another session visitor

Wol Euler: bye yaku, enjoy the weekend.

visitor: bye

Wol Euler: we can anonymize you in the record

visitor: very good, at least until I see what this discussion is about...that's good

Wol Euler: well, this session in particular has been mostly gossipy, the weekend mornings often are :)

visitor: so..I have the note now, and the group schedule

Wol Euler: in theory, as you read, we are a meditation group and we discuss the practices

Wol Euler: in reality, we talk about a lot of strange things that are somehow vaguely related

Wol Euler: we started today talking about memory and calendars :)

visitor: that's ok, everything is related

Wol Euler: indeed.

visitor: I had this landmark in my inventory and I did not remeber what is was :-)

Wol Euler: :)

visitor: now I know...Thank you Wol, I see you next meeting

--BELL--

Wol Euler smiles. Bye for now
