    Bleu Oleander: hi druth:)
    Bleu Oleander: quiet pensive
    Bleu Oleander: great AV :)
    druth Vlodovic: "pensive"? why, what's bothering you?
    druth Vlodovic: thx :)
    Bleu Oleander: nothing bothering, just thoughtful
    Bleu Oleander: how are you?
    druth Vlodovic: ah, I understood pensive to be brother to nervous
    druth Vlodovic: well enough
    druth Vlodovic: just crawled out of bed
    Bleu Oleander: pensive to me is: musingly or dreamily thoughtful
    druth Vlodovic: any paticular thoughts? or just drifting
    Bleu Oleander: have you been coming to PaB much?
    Bleu Oleander: what types of sessions have you experienced?
    druth Vlodovic: occasionally
    druth Vlodovic: "types"? I've missed all the dream ones
    Bleu Oleander: what subjects do you like to discuss?
    Bleu Oleander: have you tried the 9 sec pauses in RL?
    druth Vlodovic: well, once or twice
    druth Vlodovic: you?
    Bleu Oleander: yes, many times :)
    druth Vlodovic: it's grown on you then :-)
    Bleu Oleander: yes indeed
    Bleu Oleander: find it a very useful tool
    Bleu Oleander: what do you like to do in SL?
    druth Vlodovic: wander about and talk to people :)
    druth Vlodovic: you?
    Bleu Oleander: I like to create art, build, talk to people, participate in PaB, organize my own salons, meet new people from all over the world :)
    Bleu Oleander: have conversation in many ways
    druth Vlodovic: I'll have to check out your gallery later
    Bleu Oleander: please do!
    druth Vlodovic: funny the range of people you meet in unexpected places
    Bleu Oleander: what part of the world are you from?
    druth Vlodovic: Ontario, Canada
    Bleu Oleander: never been there .... do you like it?
    druth Vlodovic: well enough, our big draw seems to be the lack of people shooting at us lol
    Bleu Oleander: oh my
    Bleu Oleander: what are some of the positive things about it?
    druth Vlodovic: lots of immigrants, invariably that's why they are here
    druth Vlodovic: hard to say, never been anywhere else, except Mexico
    druth Vlodovic: where are you from?

    Bleu Oleander: have you seen the PaB art exhibition in the village square? Photos by the PaB guardians interpreting "Being as Time" .... you might enjoy seeing it
    Bleu Oleander: I'm from US
    druth Vlodovic: not yet
    Bleu Oleander: some very interesting photos
    Bleu Oleander: most have notecards with them
    Bleu Oleander: take a look when you have time
    Bleu Oleander: ha! when you have "time" to look at "time"
    druth Vlodovic: :)

    druth Vlodovic: what's your area like?
    Bleu Oleander: area?

    druth Vlodovic: well, you're from somewhere, the US...
    Bleu Oleander: hey Yaku
    Bleu Oleander: the southwest desert
    druth Vlodovic: ah, the underground!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey you both
    druth Vlodovic: neat
    Bleu Oleander: hi Yaku
    Bleu Oleander: have you met druth?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: sure :)
    druth Vlodovic: you've been drumming
    Yakuzza Lethecus: why aren´t you in the pool druth ? :)
    Bleu Oleander: ha!
    druth Vlodovic: lol, make my hat wilt
    Yakuzza Lethecus: :)
    Bleu Oleander: keep your head above water hehe

    Yakuzza Lethecus: so what was the topic ?
    Bleu Oleander: what we like to do in sl
    Bleu Oleander: there you go!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: for me as i sometimes mentioned, it´s exposure to new idea´s and reevalutating old habits and possibly to get rid of some retarding ones
    Yakuzza Lethecus: druth: what are the most interesting places you found so far ?
    druth Vlodovic: it changes over time
    druth Vlodovic: lately I've been blowing off steam at philosophy sites
    Yakuzza Lethecus: yes, i´ve seen you at bergsons and you also have phil island and thothica in ur list
    Bleu Oleander: steam?
    Bleu Oleander: what are your issues?
    druth Vlodovic: I like to talk, think, often my thoughts are unpleasant and I seek people to disagree with them :)
    druth Vlodovic: a new window on the world
    Bleu Oleander: what are some of your unpleasant thoughts?
    druth Vlodovic: well, mostly political, societal, and our direction, it gets heavy after a bit,
    Bleu Oleander: "our direction" ??
    Bleu Oleander: meaning homonids?


    Bleu Oleander: *hominids (sry, typos)
    druth Vlodovic: "the undiscovered country", more short term than that, I'm not sure I could imagine a thousand years from now
    Yakuzza Lethecus: do you like startrek ?
    Yakuzza Lethecus sry :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: that was the exact title of startrek VI
    druth Vlodovic: I like it
    druth Vlodovic: I know
    druth Vlodovic: my sources of inspiration are seldom high brow :)
    druth Vlodovic: what do you guys talk about?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i usually wait for other ppl to bring an interesting topic along
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i am very much interested in the topics you mentioned
    Yakuzza Lethecus: still, it´s hard for me to discuss things like politics, social justice and alike
    druth Vlodovic: hard, why?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i often feel that i need more background even from philosophy to gain different perspectives
    Bleu Oleander: i agree Yaku
    Bleu Oleander: feel the same
    Yakuzza Lethecus: it´s very emotional, sometimes even kind of fixed routines of ,,brain is switching off"
    Yakuzza Lethecus: which is not even intentional, i think it´s important to play with the idea´s
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i even fear often when i try to participate in discussion that i don´t want to have ,,an opinion" i somethimes develop tiny idea´s but fear getting fixed on those because i don´t really believe those but ask myself how much truth there is
    Yakuzza Lethecus: like for example the issue that ppl might only like to play golf because they are in a socially better environment there
    Yakuzza Lethecus: where they implicitly exclude ppl from a lower social class
    Yakuzza Lethecus: unelaborated thoughts like that come to mind often
    Yakuzza Lethecus: but i don´t know how to split these things apart
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i try to dig a bit and then i give up, next time i try to elaborate again the giving up even might go faster
    druth Vlodovic: "people feel more comfortable with people similar to themselves"
    Yakuzza Lethecus: that´s a really negative routine i noticed, with enormous negative consequences
    Yakuzza Lethecus: yes, of course but it´s in a way contraproductive for an egalitarian state
    Yakuzza Lethecus: *if you wish egalitarianism*
    druth Vlodovic: philospohy sims here ought to be just the cure, if you have a thought throw it out and see what happens to it =8O
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i fear to get stigmatized when i mention thoughts sometimes because i don´t reach the full attentionspan of someone and the other ppl might only see ,,the unleaborated thought" i might then stand for
    druth Vlodovic: if you embarass yourself there are 40,000 other people to talk to :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: that i am uncertain about these things as well, that´s nothing i usually be able to communicate
    Yakuzza Lethecus: not really :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: there aren´t that many really interested in these topics :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: and then around philosophy house and the entrance of phil island there are a lot habitual griefers
    Yakuzza Lethecus: it´s good to know ppl there better after a while, of course
    druth Vlodovic: yeah, you can't go there in a delicate mood
    druth Vlodovic: I come here to get away from those sorts of discussions, sometimes I bring them with me :(
    Yakuzza Lethecus: even here, it´s important to know everyone a bit better, like who is interested in poetry, in painting or art


    Yakuzza Lethecus smiles at bleu
    Bleu Oleander: :)
    Bleu Oleander: interesting ideas ...... well I must be going ... rl calls :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: take care bleu
    Yakuzza Lethecus: time for the voice session later ?
    druth Vlodovic: have fun Bleau
    Bleu Oleander: take care and maybe see you later ..... I have an appt at 12:30 so won't be able to make the voice session unfortunately
    Bleu Oleander: will try for the PaB session
    Yakuzza Lethecus: take care
