    Moon Fargis: the different of the smilies is simpleexplained
    Stargate Tone: just listened to Jarre; couldn't stop that
    Moon Fargis: the one that are shown by eyes are asian/japanese ones
    Woolcinder Oxidor: this feels like being in the La Primavera
    Woolcinder Oxidor: yes i was aware if that Moon
    Moon Fargis: the asians recognise emotions throught eye contact
    Moon Fargis: while we western one recognise them over the mouth
    Adams Rubble: I did not know that
    Woolcinder Oxidor: mostly the Japanese
    Moon Fargis nods
    Stargate Tone: maybe cuz they smile no matter what's in their mind
    Adams Rubble: and I thought it was the Irish eyes that were smiling :)
    Woolcinder Oxidor: no there sighs are inverted carets...or eyes
    Moon Fargis: ah dies irish people smile inverted ?
    Moon Fargis: does
    Stargate Tone: well; in SL there's no nationality cuz nobody can see anybody's mouth or eyes
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Adams Rubble: SL throws all our perceived diffrences out the window
    Moon Fargis: well for that we develop new ones
    Moon Fargis: *mews*
    Woolcinder Oxidor: sometimes i have wondered if it may be a good i dea to re write literature with smilies
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Stargate Tone: _/!\_
    Woolcinder Oxidor: so faust could say...was this the face that launched a thousand ships :(
    Stargate Tone: Wool; I seldom read ppl's profile...as it tells so little anyway...but read now Ur's...
    Stargate Tone: would U dare to share why you choosed that story ?
    Woolcinder Oxidor: and does it tells too much
    Woolcinder Oxidor: its an elegy by Dylan Thomas
    The sticks of the house were his; his books he owned.
    Even as a baby he had never cried;
    Nor did he now, save to his secret wound.

    Too proud to die; broken and blind he died
    The darkest way, and did not turn away,
    A cold kind man brave in his burning pride

    Stargate Tone: depends...does yours ?
    Woolcinder Oxidor: i thought i felt very much like the person being described
    Stargate Tone: thank you
    Stargate Tone: felt so
    Woolcinder Oxidor: but he was talking about his father actually
    Stargate Tone: _/!\_
    Woolcinder Oxidor: also i have taken the liberty of changing a few verses here and there
    Stargate Tone: **
    Woolcinder Oxidor: they would have been too unpleasant
    Stargate Tone: may I share the most difficult lesson my father gave to me ?
    Woolcinder Oxidor: yes
    Adams Rubble: please do Star
    Adams Rubble: Hello Steve
    stevenaia Michinaga: hello
    Moon Fargis: hi steve
    Stargate Tone: as I understood else, but this was needed for me to live tens of years to understand;
    Stargate Tone: hello steve; wonderfull to see you for long time
    stevenaia Michinaga: hello Moon, Stargate, a very long time since I;ve seen you
    Woolcinder Oxidor: Hello Steve
    Stargate Tone: ah yes; my pa's given lesson...as he advised me this way ;
    Stargate Tone: *you girl keep your pride, cuz that's the only property of poor person'
    Stargate Tone: my father was the most humble man I've known...was so hard for me to understand why he said so...
    Stargate Tone: but when it came to my life that I had no home left for strangers coming, I understood that one needs to have also pride...cuz must chooce so much for the time limit
    Stargate Tone: end of my story
    Adams Rubble: we must grasp what we are
    Adams Rubble: and not what others think we are
    stevenaia Michinaga: what is a PA, Stargate
    stevenaia Michinaga: father?
    Stargate Tone: well...what one is may be the different thing than what one does...
    Stargate Tone: ah yes
    Adams Rubble: yes Star :)
    Woolcinder Oxidor: that is the most difficult theing ,,,to not be what others think we are
    Stargate Tone: as I've always thought that there is no 'form' of character; to be something, that would be good or bad, it's how to use different 'sides'...
    Stargate Tone: but yes; took time for me to learn how also pride is good thing to have ...'use'....
    stevenaia Michinaga: I have a similar thought.. what one is is how others see you are

             The Elegy by Dylan Thomas

    Too proud to die; broken and blind he died
    The darkest way, and did not turn away,
    A cold kind man brave in his narrow pride

    On that darkest day, Oh, forever may
    He lie lightly, at last, on the last, crossed
    Hill, under the grass, in love, and there grow

    Young among the long flocks, and never lie lost
    Or still all the numberless days of his death, though
    Above all he longed for his mother's breast

    Which was rest and dust, and in the kind ground
    The darkest justice of death, blind and unblessed.
    Let him find no rest but be fathered and found,

    I prayed in the crouching room, by his blind bed,
    In the muted house, one minute before
    Noon, and night, and light. the rivers of the dead

    Veined his poor hand I held, and I saw
    Through his unseeing eyes to the roots of the sea.
    (An old tormented man three-quarters blind,

    I am not too proud to cry that He and he
    Will never never go out of my mind.
    All his bones crying, and poor in all but pain,

    Being innocent, he dreaded that he died
    Hating his God, but what he was was plain:
    An old kind man brave in his burning pride.

    The sticks of the house were his; his books he owned.
    Even as a baby he had never cried;
    Nor did he now, save to his secret wound.

    Out of his eyes I saw the last light glide.
    Here among the liught of the lording sky
    An old man is with me where I go

    Walking in the meadows of his son's eye
    On whom a world of ills came down like snow.
    He cried as he died, fearing at last the spheres'

    Last sound, the world going out without a breath:
    Too proud to cry, too frail to check the tears,
    And caught between two nights, blindness and death.

    O deepest wound of all that he should die
    On that darkest day. oh, he could hide
    The tears out of his eyes, too proud to cry.

    Until I die he will not leave my side.)

    Woolcinder Oxidor: the link to the poem for the record
    Stargate Tone: and yes; think that it's more taken to be male charachter; more important to men....
    Adams Rubble: thanks Woolcinder, I'll paste it in the log
    Adams Rubble: in Pema's terms, our image is what we have not what we are
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Stargate Tone: well; there was once a topic as ppl said they cannot always be what they are...I simply cannot understand that, cuz imo nobody can be else what one is....
    Moon Fargis: well
    Stargate Tone: image can yes be what ever...
    Adams Rubble: we can live without knowing what we are :)
    Moon Fargis: the problem is
    Moon Fargis: they cannot be what they are
    Woolcinder Oxidor: that we can do quite easily
    Moon Fargis: becasue then they define what they are by others
    Moon Fargis: thats a normal human behaviour
    Moon Fargis: trhat they need others to tell them what they are
    stevenaia Michinaga: the convenience of friends
    Stargate Tone: well; when one 'is' something else on is, that's to pretend, so; on such moment one simply is the pretender...
    Moon Fargis: well a sipßle example
    Stargate Tone: people feel so huge much 'reasons' to pretend too...
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey everyone, moving over to the guardina session

    Moon talks about his "designation" and how it dows not fit the way he sees himself
    Moon Fargis: i am a media designer , becasue i lerned it so society say "you are a media designer"
    Stargate Tone: **
    Adams Rubble: Hello and goodbye Yaku :)
    Moon Fargis: but basicly i am not a media designer
    Stargate Tone: well; U r that too, so that's not to pretend
    Moon Fargis: becasue others define verry different what a mediadesigner is
    Stargate Tone: it's 'part' of you ; what you are and do
    Stargate Tone: ah ok
    Moon Fargis: so whenever theres a job as media designer there is much of stuff requested i simply cannot do
    Moon Fargis: becasue they define media designer in a way others defined it for me to be
    Stargate Tone: *giggles*...there's something you cannot do as the media designer ?
    Moon Fargis: so aslong i accept that other define devil circle i never can be a media designer
    stevenaia Michinaga: people will always ask for everything, even when what they are asking for may not exist
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Moon Fargis: well, a good example is "webdesign"
    Moon Fargis: they expect a media designer to create webpages
    Moon Fargis: sure they can to the layout and graphics
    Moon Fargis: but they cannot create them
    Moon Fargis: one must atleast know 6 coding languages to create a progfessional webpage
    Stargate Tone: like for example them requests to get the worker; 'young man been in the army; much practice in profession'
    Woolcinder Oxidor: but what is that people are doing...when they want you to be someone that you are not
    Woolcinder Oxidor: are they simply projecting themselves on you...or they want you to be something they couldnt be themselves
    Moon Fargis: well on verry hard times one may be forced to it, like in war
    Moon Fargis: but aslong theres the option of free choose
    Moon Fargis: everyone should be as free to say "no"
    Moon Fargis: even that means not to get a job
    Moon Fargis: like i fought much in my life not to be a technical one
    Stargate Tone: well; imo when somebody wants the other to be something else one is not, they simply want to rule over, and THAT'S such that I've seen more than too much to happen
    Moon Fargis: meaning one who sets up electric circuts aso
    stevenaia Michinaga: I mus tbe off
    stevenaia Michinaga: see you soon
    Adams Rubble: bye Steve :)
    Woolcinder Oxidor: humm and thats being powerful...thats the negative side of pride
    Stargate Tone: _/!\_ steve
    Woolcinder Oxidor: bye Steve
    Stargate Tone: enjoy
    Moon Fargis: bye steve ^^
    stevenaia Michinaga: love the plantings, Moon
    Moon Fargis: thx^^
    Woolcinder Oxidor: you could call it ferocity
    Woolcinder Oxidor: like a wolf
    Stargate Tone: smiles *
    Woolcinder Oxidor: there are two powers in the human soul
    Adams Rubble: we need to separate expections from what we are
    Stargate Tone: (loves wolfs)
    Woolcinder Oxidor: inference and movement
    Woolcinder Oxidor: or inference and initiation
    Adams Rubble: Sometimes there is a job needing to be done and someone is looking for someone to do it
    Woolcinder Oxidor: inference is either through thought thought or action
    Adams Rubble: That does not necessisarily imply a power situation
    I was not being naive and implying that power doesn't enter in to a work situation. If both parties are focused on the tasks at hand and not on who is wielding power, communication is easier and it is easier to obtain the desired result. I unfortunately change the subject with my next statement which might have been better left unsaid. I have my own prejudices about the changes to the world wide web over its brief existence
    Woolcinder Oxidor: yes i am sure my Boss is above all this :)
    Adams Rubble: I don;t think one needs six languages to do a webpage (giggles)
    Stargate Tone: depends
    Moon Fargis: well
    Moon Fargis: a professional one
    Adams Rubble: yes, maybe on what thinks a webpage is
    Moon Fargis: html
    Moon Fargis: xhtml
    Moon Fargis: CCs
    Moon Fargis: javascript
    Moon Fargis: flash
    Moon Fargis: php
    Moon Fargis: xml
    Moon Fargis: and some database knowlege
    Moon Fargis: and flash
    Moon Fargis: ah flash i mentions :)
    Moon Fargis: ok one flash less:)
    Adams Rubble: web pages can be about content, not razzle dazzle
    Stargate Tone: lol *
    Moon Fargis: well if its a private one sure
    Moon Fargis: then one can take frontpage ort other things and make one quickly
    Stargate Tone: but when one is needed to serve ppl around the world having their own language and will to have the page with that *
    Moon Fargis: but as soon its starting to be a companywebpage ith all kind of graphical muble grumble those languages are needed
    Woolcinder Oxidor: yes the media becomes the message
    Moon Fargis: already a member login requires a databse server and lots of knowlege about it
    Stargate Tone: (Moon created huge things to finnish company in finnish)
    Moon Fargis: ahyes and thankfully no webpage :D
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Adams Rubble wasn;t tinking about national langiages :)
    Adams Rubble: I expect whatever you do is very good Moon :)
    Stargate Tone: thinking the saying that there's as many persons within that how many languages one knows....how might that be with them pc languages....
    Moon Fargis: ah intrestingly
    Moon Fargis: there are sure hundrets of pc languages
    Moon Fargis: to create programs
    Moon Fargis: butthe laaarge one all almost use is C
    Stargate Tone: one man once told how he cannot see any beauty in those forms that pc gives randomly, as he just thinks them bit's how it works out....
    Moon Fargis: so lets say to create a program, there are less languages to be known as for creating a webpage
    Woolcinder Oxidor: well theres much beauty in fractal art..and that cannot be created without a pc i believe
    Woolcinder Oxidor: like the mandelbrot set
    Moon Fargis: ahyes lots of fractal styles
    Stargate Tone: hm...why couldn't it be created as manual ?
    Woolcinder Oxidor: http://i271.photobucket.com/albums/j...brot-large.jpg
    Woolcinder Oxidor: heres an example
    Woolcinder Oxidor: it requires recurring computations that couldnt be done manually
    Moon Fargis: ah sure but the artist dont calculate
    Moon Fargis: he just draws :)
    Moon Fargis: no matter if its exact to a calculation
    Stargate Tone: oh wow....feel that he's fallen to lay down; would like to turn him ;)*****
    Woolcinder Oxidor: and the interesting thing is that the image is a result of one very simple computation..done ove rand over
    Moon Fargis: ah who ?:)
    Woolcinder Oxidor: you probably thought it was a lady bug
    Woolcinder Oxidor: :)
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Stargate Tone: this picture
    Adams Rubble: I am afraid I must go
    Stargate Tone: hm...well...didnt' think anything; just felt...and feel still
    Stargate Tone: have nice time Adams
    Woolcinder Oxidor: Bye Adams
    Adams Rubble: bye everyone. Thank you :)
    Stargate Tone: ...ladybug would need wings to exist...
    Adams Rubble: Have good nights or days :)
    Stargate Tone: thank you
    Woolcinder Oxidor: that was very kind Star
    Woolcinder Oxidor: http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=...vi&safe=active
    Woolcinder Oxidor: oops
    Woolcinder Oxidor: i didnt realize it was this long
    Woolcinder Oxidor: less insecty
    Woolcinder Oxidor: even photoshop is mostly about calculations isnt it Moon
    Moon Fargis: sure all programs are :)
    Stargate Tone: ahhhh
    Woolcinder Oxidor: skew and strectch etc
    Stargate Tone: even music is much 'calculating'....
    Woolcinder Oxidor: and we have the prrof in the form of vogue and cosmopolitan that they do work :)
    Stargate Tone: just happenes so 'obviously' that all dont think so ....
    Moon Fargis: we would need years to calculate the stuff our computer calculates now in a Second of second life
    Woolcinder Oxidor: music has less calculations to it...its mathematics isnt as precise
    Woolcinder Oxidor: we simply cannot compute a good symphony
    Stargate Tone: Ivgenny told to be her name, but to me she's a star :)****
    Stargate Tone: oh huge how beautiful 'snowstar' :)***
    Stargate Tone: thank you so much for sharing this *
    Stargate Tone: have never seen this beautiful fractal
    Woolcinder Oxidor: nevertheless there have been efforts at computing one
    Stargate Tone: _/!\_
    Woolcinder Oxidor: like taking a masterpiece and working out a variation through translation or inversion
    Stargate Tone: **
    Woolcinder Oxidor: the results are ususally wasteful
    Moon Fargis: ^^
    Moon Fargis: ok seemsi have to go now
    Moon Fargis: was nice meeting you
    Woolcinder Oxidor: nice talking to you Moon
