    Lucinda Lavender: just home from yoga...
    stevenaia Michinaga: perhaps a cool calm momenting will do just fine
    Lucinda Lavender: yes
    Calvino Rabeni: A small hut built over a natural subterranean steam vent
    Lucinda Lavender: I am in view2 tonight and the link does not automatically work...sigh
    Lucinda Lavender: ah yes.. the hut!

    Calvino Rabeni: Right click on the link - should see a menu "open in external browser"
    Lucinda Lavender: oh! no problem!
    Lucinda Lavender: lovely!
    Lucinda Lavender: a rustic hut!
    stevenaia Michinaga: is this a local hut?
    Calvino Rabeni: It is located in the mountains of Oregon, USA
    Calvino Rabeni: Filled with the sound of the underground stream, bubbling away in a cauldron like way - a good place for your night time chanting
    Lucinda Lavender: did you do the night time chanting?
    Calvino Rabeni: It's nearly unavoidable, surely
    Lucinda Lavender: nice...I was reading in a website yesterday that Paradise gave which had selected talks ...and the one I picked to read was IT's OK
    Lucinda Lavender: Described there as the American Mantra
    Lucinda Lavender: this was useful at work for me today...thinking of the it's ok as mantra
    Calvino Rabeni: It's being chanted in huts, the planet over
    Lucinda Lavender: :)
    Calvino Rabeni: Although the origin may be shrouded in mystery
    stevenaia Michinaga: do you ahve the link?
    Lucinda Lavender: that is what I wish I had...
    Lucinda Lavender: I must have it in the history somewhere ...I shall look.
    Calvino Rabeni: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Okay
    Calvino Rabeni: You see it chanted into cell phones in Tokyo, and in mountain monasteries from Thailand to Tibet, and in the african savanna
    Lucinda Lavender: The speaker was from Spirit Mountain In CA I think
    Lucinda Lavender: A Buddhist Monk
    Calvino Rabeni: Calvino Rabeni wonders how it works
    Calvino Rabeni: Part of the universal human tongue, like "OY!"
    stevenaia Michinaga: thought that was Yiddish
    Lucinda Lavender: an example was that with a wound there is a natural healing process that with protection and rest will proceed.will
    stevenaia Michinaga: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oy_vey
    Lucinda Lavender: prodeed in the healing...
    Calvino Rabeni: I've observed OY in the wild, for example as a loaded bus careens around a corner on a dusty road
    Calvino Rabeni: I'm not sure, but I think "uh-on!" is in the same vocabulary, along with "OOPS!"
    Calvino Rabeni: As in "OOPS, I didn't hear the PaB bell of silence"
    Lucinda Lavender: Are you saying...it can be an unconscious sort of mantra?
    Lucinda Lavender: :)
    Calvino Rabeni: Like the ones that stones invoke by falling on a toe
    Lucinda Lavender: From my current point of view it appears that Stevenaia is holding Freddie in his lap...
    stevenaia Michinaga: :)
    Lucinda Lavender: I am viewing from opposite myself...
    stevenaia Michinaga: my cat has his "take over the computer" moment
    Lucinda Lavender: nice...
    stevenaia Michinaga: not when I am trying to type
    Calvino Rabeni: Some knowledge "about" language has been lost since the time of the vedas
    Lucinda Lavender: :)
    Calvino Rabeni: The basics though are known to your cat equally
    Lucinda Lavender: hmm
    Calvino Rabeni: The three prototypical utterances, for instance
    Lucinda Lavender: what are they?
    Calvino Rabeni: Yuck, Yum, and Yow!
    Lucinda Lavender: :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: food and pain expressed
    Calvino Rabeni: And all else is footnote
    Calvino Rabeni: I've not heard of the dreaming of blind people - have you, Lucinda?
    Lucinda Lavender: I will have to look that up...have some resouces.
    Lucinda Lavender: I think there are dreams tho
    stevenaia Michinaga: blind people dreams?
    stevenaia Michinaga: why would they not dream?
    Lucinda Lavender: yes...they would have that ability I would think.
    stevenaia Michinaga: what was Cal talking about: [19:54] Calvino Rabeni: I've not heard of the dreaming of blind people - have you, Lucinda?
    stevenaia Michinaga: wb Cal
    Calvino Rabeni: "oops" - teleportus interruptus
    stevenaia Michinaga: what did you mean by :Calvino Rabeni: I've not heard of the dreaming of blind people
    Calvino Rabeni: The sensory content of their dream worlds, perhaps less "visual" than my own
    stevenaia Michinaga: nods
    Calvino Rabeni: Perhaps highly nuanced in other modes?
    stevenaia Michinaga: I must be off, thank you for joining me
    Calvino Rabeni: YW, fare well
    Lucinda Lavender: Oh my...I am reading that babies in utero spend every moment in REM.
    Calvino Rabeni: Is that dreaming?
    Lucinda Lavender: yes I think so. But kkkkkkkkkusually REM happens later...closer to morning. I have gone straght in to visual images I know...even when sleep has just started. So maybe there is something to figure out here.
    Lucinda Lavender: interesting question tho.
    Lucinda Lavender: shall we google?
    Calvino Rabeni: would you like to do that - yes
    Lucinda Lavender: I am seeing here that what is seen depends upon what was ever seen.
    Lucinda Lavender: Blind from birth have only auditory dreams
    Lucinda Lavender: This uis just one source...I shall look further
    Lucinda Lavender: People who become blind in infancy also do not see in the dreams
    Lucinda Lavender: I will have to go now...
    Calvino Rabeni: Glad you stopped by Lucinda
    Calvino Rabeni: _/!\_
