    The Guardian for this meeting was Darren Islar. The comments are by Darren Islar.

    Darren Islar: mogge pool, how are you?
    Darren Islar: I am brutally woken up this morning
    Darren Islar: by a device that is called an alarm clock
    Darren Islar: that is one of the devices you need when you are able to think
    Darren Islar: and when you are able to move in a more or less free way
    Darren Islar: you're moving too, but never leaving this pond
    Darren Islar: sometimes I wonder who is better off
    Darren Islar: you don't seem to mind
    Darren Islar: and doing the same thing every day again and again
    Darren Islar: amazing
    Darren Islar: everyone will know that you will be here, no matter what
    Darren Islar: you now, with humans sometimes that is not the case
    Darren Islar: I don't know why
    Darren Islar: probably because they can think
    Darren Islar: and nowadays they like to think about two, three things at the same time
    Darren Islar: I don't no why, maybe they think they miss something if they don't
    Darren Islar: or maybe they think it is the way it should be
    Darren Islar: or maybe because we get easily bored
    Darren Islar: and here you are, doing the same thing over and over again, without getting bored
    Darren Islar: maybe we invented boredom

        --BELL--

    Darren Islar: to make sure we keep on moving
    Darren Islar: not being able to get used to the subtle sounds of water falling into a pool
    Darren Islar: or the subtle signs of our body telling us how he feels
    Darren Islar: or the subtle thoughts that tell us what we should do, instead of doing something
    Darren Islar: anything, as long as we are doing it
    Darren Islar: we feel okay
    Darren Islar: we think

    Here my solo thoughts ended

    Darren Islar: hi Cal :)
    Darren Islar: I have been talking to the fountain
    Calvino Rabeni: :) Good evening, Darren
    Darren Islar: he didn't talk back, but gave me answers anyway
    Calvino Rabeni: The previous session had one attendee also, so I spoke to the fountain
    Darren Islar: :))
    Calvino Rabeni: Quite a good listener, actually
    Darren Islar: yep
    Darren Islar: and always here, no matter what
    Calvino Rabeni: Which one of you proposed the topic ?
    Darren Islar: I did
    Darren Islar: but maybe I should have listened first, before proposing it
    Darren Islar: this is what we talked about (giving Cal a nc)
    Calvino Rabeni: and would it be good to continue with that conversation?
    Darren Islar: maybe, you can read it for yourself and tell me what you think ofit
    Darren Islar: but the fountain and I came to some closure

        --BELL--

    Calvino Rabeni: If we trade places with the fountain, what can we learn?
    Darren Islar: continuity
    Darren Islar: no that might be how others feel it
    Darren Islar: I guess the fountain is smiling about all those faces he sees every day, trying to figure out what life is all about
    Darren Islar: as fountain I would see them come and go
    Darren Islar: seeing people who think they are inventing the wheel
    Darren Islar: but the fountain knows that it was already invented a long time ago
    Darren Islar: water is almost as old as the earth is
    Darren Islar: and we make a fountain of it
    Darren Islar: pushing water through a small tube and then suddenly giving it space
    Darren Islar: he's fine with it
    Darren Islar: we drink it, we flush it through the toilet, and he is fine with it
    Darren Islar: just doing its cycle, knowing that water is water and dirt is dirt

        --BELL--

    Darren Islar: we think that water can be dirty, but the water knows it will be cleared again, some day
    Darren Islar: isn't mixing himself up with the dirt he encounters
    Darren Islar: so he smiles at us
    Calvino Rabeni: The fountain hasn't spoken yet, I noticed
    Darren Islar: no, he smiles
    Darren Islar: I know what you mean Cal
    Darren Islar: it says brrrsssswwwwdropsseweeedrop
    Calvino Rabeni: I was also wondering what message it carried,and from who
    Darren Islar: who?
    Darren Islar: in this case, me
    Darren Islar: water don't think like we do, but it certainly has its qualities
    Calvino Rabeni: yes it does
    Calvino Rabeni: and perhaps we do think as it does - we're mostly water, aren't we?
    Darren Islar: yes
    Calvino Rabeni: with a series of channels, and a pump like this fountain, tubes and everything
    Darren Islar: yes, but also with brains
    Calvino Rabeni: like this fountain, we like to lie down on the ground
    Darren Islar: with matter
    Calvino Rabeni: and occasionally throw something into the air
    Darren Islar: I don't perceive it as lying
    Calvino Rabeni: sinking, relaxing
    Darren Islar: relaxing yes, because it goes to the place where it is pushed to
    Darren Islar: or falling in to
    Calvino Rabeni: and when not pushed, it collects itself
    Darren Islar: not out of its own
    Darren Islar: you need matter to do so
    Darren Islar: a pit

        --BELL--

    Darren Islar: something like that
    Darren Islar: it is not the water in itself that makes the river flow
    Darren Islar: it is matter or the lack of it that makes it flow
    Darren Islar: or makes it to collect
    Darren Islar: it needs something solid
    Calvino Rabeni: yes, the fountain has all those different parts, and they work together
    Calvino Rabeni: with the energy coming from the sun
    Darren Islar: yes
    Darren Islar: that makes it fluid yes
    Darren Islar: I need to go in a few minutes
    Darren Islar: I have a busy day
    Calvino Rabeni: perhaps it will have some extra "flow" :)
    Darren Islar: :))
    Darren Islar: well I try keep it flowing
    Calvino Rabeni: people like fountains because of their playfulness and relaxation
    Darren Islar: tiredness is stopping the flow
    Darren Islar: yes
    Calvino Rabeni: water doesn't get tired, but it does collect in low places
    Darren Islar: yes
    Calvino Rabeni: then waits until motivated
    Calvino Rabeni: it is flexible, but cannot be much compressed
    Calvino Rabeni: that's one thing I like about it
    Darren Islar: no, it has his own solidity

    Fael Illyar: Hi Darren, Cal :)
    Darren Islar: hi Fael :)

    Calvino Rabeni: well, good talking to you Darren - maybe next time we can do "stone"
    Darren Islar: I can remeber several red belly's learning to dive
    Darren Islar: :))
    Darren Islar: can you play it fael?
    Fael Illyar: unfortunately not :)
    Fael Illyar: it's just decoration :)
    Darren Islar: okay :)

    Darren Islar: nice talking to you Cal and Fountain :)
    Darren Islar: bye Cal, Fael
    Calvino Rabeni: bye for now Darren, be well
    Calvino Rabeni: :)
    Fael Illyar: have fun Darren :)
    Fael Illyar: meep! :)

        --BELL--

    Calvino Rabeni: indeed, meep!
    Fael Illyar: meep meep! :)
    Calvino Rabeni: Good Meep!, bye for now
