    Zen Arado: Hi Riddle
    Lucinda Lavender: the dreaming feeling...letting go
    Lucinda Lavender: not controlling...
    Eden Haiku: I had a dream about a gorgeous pale yellow cotton dress with violet embroidery. I had washed it, a
    cotton dress and I had to iron it...

    ('I recall a yellow cotton dress'....MacArthur Park?)

    Maxine Walden: :) ?
    Agatha Macbeth: Hope you didn't leave the iron on ;-)

    Maxine Walden: :))
    Lucinda Lavender: yes...I remember...now
    Agatha Macbeth: And Freud of course...
    Adams Rubble is Offline
    Maxine Walden: :)
    Lucinda Lavender: it was about the fullness and emptiness of something ...?
    Riddle Sideways: of course the book does not record his bad interprets
    Zen Arado: :)
    Maxine Walden: just thinking of our dreaming may be like a multi-colored fabric, wending so many strands
    Lucinda Lavender: yes
    Calvino Rabeni: Things look better with a little "PR"
    Maxine Walden: :)
    Lucinda Lavender: PR?
    Calvino Rabeni: Public Relations
    Agatha Macbeth nods
    Calvino Rabeni: As in, the wrong interprets are left out :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Wonder who his spin doctor was?
    Calvino Rabeni: Momemt to moment, mind does this in microseconds
    Lucinda Lavender: oh...:) in what I have studid...dreams come from some level of truth
    Zen Arado: whoever wrote Genesis
    Agatha Macbeth: Well if they are wrong, leave 'em out i say
    Calvino Rabeni: August Persons
    Maxine Walden: maybe the little haikus and notations arising from dropping are dreamlets
    Lucinda Lavender: we resonate with something in the dream
    Maxine Walden: droplets
    Agatha Macbeth: :)
    Lucinda Lavender: yes
    Calvino Rabeni: But a timer goes off, then we take the best wrong interpretation and run with it :)
    Lucinda Lavender: droplets of truth
    Maxine Walden: :))
    Maxine Walden: yes, Lucinda
    SophiaSharon Larnia: yes Max Ive thought of them as remnants as through a sieve, but haven't said it before :)
    Calvino Rabeni: Even the wrong intepretations - are revealing as dreams
    Maxine Walden: hmm, interesting Sharon
    Lucinda Lavender: when the bigger picture is heard...
    Maxine Walden: agree, Cal
    Eden Haiku: I like "dreamlets" Maxine :-) Nice neologism!
    Agatha Macbeth grins @ Sharon
    Maxine Walden: hmm :)
    Zen Arado: doesn't know what a neologism is
    Maxine Walden: newly made up word
    Zen Arado: :(
    Eden Haiku: An invented word Zen.
    Calvino Rabeni: Newly couned term
    Calvino Rabeni: *coined
    Agatha Macbeth nods
    Zen Arado: you made it up?
    Eden Haiku: Droplets of dreams like seconds of time...
    Eden Haiku: Maxine did.
    Maxine Walden: nice images emerging from our weaving strands of thoughts/words together
    Calvino Rabeni: Everyone has the right / privilege to invent language
    Maxine Walden: and maybe new words are like new dreamlets
    Calvino Rabeni: agree
    Calvino Rabeni: they are little worlds
    Lucinda Lavender: the other day I heard Pema say...something about Time being a container...
    Maxine Walden: I think of this, our experience here, as dreaming together
    Agatha Macbeth: 'Twas bryllig and the slithy toves'...etc
    Eden Haiku: So many new words are emerging from the new technologies, it is a wonder!
    Calvino Rabeni: tiny handles to bigger realities
    Bleu Oleander: maybe some dreamlets need new words
    Lucinda Lavender: this ..container is our holder for the dreamlets
    Eden Haiku: Yes, Bleu, I agree.
    Agatha Macbeth: Mm
    Zen Arado: new metaphors..
    Lucinda Lavender: and our consciousness is holding the dreamlets
    Eden Haiku: New metaphors for a new paradigm yes Zen...
    Zen Arado: as Rorty said
    Agatha Macbeth: Rorty?
    Zen Arado: Richard Rorty the philosopher
    Agatha Macbeth: Don't know him I'm afraid
    Eden Haiku: What was the quotation Agatha? Gaelic? Old English?
    Agatha Macbeth: Which Edie, sorry?
    Calvino Rabeni: What said Rorty?
    Eden Haiku: Agatha Macbeth: 'Twas bryllig and the slithy toves'...etc
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh, you mean Jabberwocky?
    Zen Arado: that analytical philosophy is dead
    Agatha Macbeth: It's from Alice in Wonderland
    Agatha Macbeth: It's about portmanteau words
    Calvino Rabeni: Calvino Rabeni sheds a mock tear for analytical philosophy
    Agatha Macbeth hands Cal a handkerchief
    Zen Arado: writes and poets will tell us more about reality ...he said
    Eden Haiku: Thanks.
    Calvino Rabeni: Now let those philosophers find their way back into the fold
    Calvino Rabeni: THanks Aga
    Agatha Macbeth: YW :)
    Lucinda Lavender: Into the fold of the dream coat...
    Maxine Walden: :)
    Calvino Rabeni: Fold of the handkerchief too :)
    Agatha Macbeth: When did Rorty writhe then Zen?
    Agatha Macbeth: Write
    Maxine Walden: write or writhe...interesting both
    Agatha Macbeth: Depends on what he was doing at the time ;-)
    Zen Arado: Contingency, Irony, and Solidarity (1989)
    Agatha Macbeth: Ah, he's modern then...
    Calvino Rabeni: Pomo
    Agatha Macbeth will turn to Wikipedia
    Calvino Rabeni: Depending on where you go, we're premo, mo, pomo, or po-pomo :)
    Eden Haiku: postmo?
    Calvino Rabeni: :) Life is interesting :)
    Calvino Rabeni: Yes
    stevenaia Michinaga: atempts to leave quiety
    Agatha Macbeth: Hm, will take a closer look at that later
    Eden Haiku: bye Steve...
    Agatha Macbeth: Bye Steve
    Maxine Walden: bye steve
    Riddle Sideways: bye Stev
    Zen Arado: bye Steve
    stevenaia Michinaga is Offline
    SophiaSharon Larnia: bye Steve
    Yakuzza Lethecus: ye steve
    Eden Haiku: Welcome back Yakuzza!
    Zen Arado: good little book on Rorty
    Zen Arado: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Rorty-Redesc...ophers-Gideon-
    Agatha Macbeth: Thx zen
    Agatha Macbeth: Nothing anyone wants to particularly bring up this week then?
    Riddle Sideways: hmmm, "dreamlets" was deleted from wikipedia in 2008
    Agatha Macbeth: Erk
    Maxine Walden: :)
    Eden Haiku: It used to be a word then?
    Lucinda Lavender: :))
    Riddle Sideways: were plush toys
    Maxine Walden: we can still have it as a word if we like
    Agatha Macbeth likes 'dreamlets'
    Eden Haiku: Did you know there are thousands more words in English than in French?
    Zen Arado: it's our word:)
    Maxine Walden: did not know that, Eden
    Maxine Walden: how come?
    Zen Arado: me either
    Agatha Macbeth: Most of them are synonyms Edie
    Bleu Oleander: more dreamlets in english?
    Zen Arado: we talk too much:)
    Lucinda Lavender: :)
    Bleu Oleander: talk is cheap
    Eden Haiku: Yes, I'm always amazed. Many neologisms for me might be dictionnary words in fact...:)
    Agatha Macbeth: Like 'begin' 'commence' 'start' etc
    Riddle Sideways: we typo too much
    Zen Arado: Americans make up lots of new words
    Zen Arado: and Aussies
    Eden Haiku: I think French has more syntax and this is the way subtelties are accounted for.
    Agatha Macbeth: Actually most of the words in English seem to have come from French :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Or Anglo-Norman at any rate
    Zen Arado: yes - they gave them to us and then dropped them
    Agatha Macbeth: Hehe
    Maxine Walden: :))
    Eden Haiku: And also French Academy is quite rigid about letting new words in...
    Zen Arado: ah interesting..
    Agatha Macbeth nods
    Maxine Walden: very proud of keeping the language 'pure' ?
    Agatha Macbeth: The word police
    Zen Arado: we are murdering English
    Riddle Sideways: use a word wronginglyness and go to jail
    Eden Haiku: A matter of class and hierarchy from the Middle Age yes.
    Bleu Oleander: c u all .... it's been really funnerific!
    Maxine Walden: unless one thinks it is vitalizing to introduce new words...
    Agatha Macbeth: Bye Bleu
    Maxine Walden: haha, bleu
    Riddle Sideways: by bleu
    Zen Arado: you can;t say that Bleu :)
    Bleu Oleander: bye
    Eden Haiku: The copist monks would make the spelling very complicated so the lay person could not write
    Zen Arado: bye Bleu
    Eden Haiku: Funnerific ;)))
    Agatha Macbeth: And they succeeded!
    Maxine Walden: really, Eden, to keep the language out of riffraff hands
    Agatha Macbeth: Can't trust plebs with words...
    Maxine Walden: but can there be any dream police?
    Zen Arado: didn't they keep to Latin?
    Eden Haiku: Thank God we have poets and writers to stray away from the Academy...
    Maxine Walden: to stay and to stray away...
    Agatha Macbeth: Indeed
    Maxine Walden: yes, Eden
    Calvino Rabeni: These are both good functions
    Maxine Walden: seems to me we cannot boss the dream around
    Calvino Rabeni: Civilization relies on its fragmentation
    Eden Haiku: French emerged from Latin around that time Zen, in the Renaissance.
    Agatha Macbeth: Maybe the dreams boss us Max
    Calvino Rabeni: to create diverse viewpoints and perspectives
    Maxine Walden: think so, Agatha
    Zen Arado: are my dreams telling me something?
    Lucinda Lavender: I was remembering Pema saying something about time as a container...
    Agatha Macbeth: :)
    Riddle Sideways: Dream Police, by the Cars
    Zen Arado: yes Lucinda?
    Agatha Macbeth remembers The Cars
    Lucinda Lavender: and it seems it might contain and drop..everything
    Agatha Macbeth: 'Who's gonna drive you home tonight'
    SophiaSharon Larnia: everything being contsined by time Lucinda?
    Riddle Sideways: Time in a bottle
    SophiaSharon Larnia: contained*
    Lucinda Lavender: yes
    Agatha Macbeth: Sharon's inventing new words now! :))
    Zen Arado: it was 'message in a bottle'?
    Maxine Walden: :)
    Agatha Macbeth: No, that was The police Zen
    SophiaSharon Larnia: (i wouldnt know what it means tho! haha)
    Agatha Macbeth grins
    Zen Arado: cosine?
    Agatha Macbeth: Cosecant?
    Maxine Walden: sine, cosine and tangent?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: wow rough crowd :D
    Agatha Macbeth: Cosi van tutte?
    Riddle Sideways: obtuse
    Zen Arado: something to do with triangles?
    Calvino Rabeni: TIme - nature's way of keeping everything from happening all at once, so we have a chance to
    enjoy it
    Lucinda Lavender: :)
    Maxine Walden: :))
    Agatha Macbeth: Mind my hypoteneuse
    SophiaSharon Larnia: nice one Cal
    Zen Arado: :)
    Maxine Walden: is that like a water horse, Agatha
    Lucinda Lavender: has any one remembered dreams with geometric shapes?
    Agatha Macbeth: Haha
    Calvino Rabeni: Calvino Rabeni wonders, does my hypotenuse make me look fat ?
    Riddle Sideways: image of Harry Potter in a huge wherehouse of time bottles
    Riddle Sideways: of memories
    Eden Haiku: An hippocamp?
    Eden Haiku: A wherehouse?
    Agatha Macbeth: Leave Harry potter out of it please
    Calvino Rabeni: No Potter :)

    Eden Haiku: Golden Number.
    Maxine Walden: all
    Zen Arado: :)
    Maxine Walden: is this dream jamming we are doing now?
    Calvino Rabeni: Calvino Rabeni thinks of Allen's "The Whore of Mensa"
    Zen Arado: not Babylon?
    Agatha Macbeth: Leonhard Euler (no relation)?
    Eden Haiku: Technicolor dreamcoats in golden numbers.
    Maxine Walden: :))
    Agatha Macbeth: Sounds fun
    Riddle Sideways: his coat of many numbers
    SophiaSharon Larnia whispers: not to interupt, but is someone saving this session to post?
    Agatha Macbeth: The Mathemagician
    Agatha Macbeth: Er, dunno Shaz
    Calvino Rabeni: Hungry for a little intellectual stimulation, its clients pay well for a chance to discuss Plato or
    Kiirkegaard with a well-provisioned young person
    Maxine Walden: oh, love it, Agatha
    Agatha Macbeth: I'll do it if you like
