    The Guardian for this meeting was Agatha Macbeth. The comments are by the sexy one herself.

    Agatha Macbeth: Hello Bruce :)
    Bruce Mowbray: Hi, Aggers...
    Agatha Macbeth: Ow ya doin' mate?
    Agatha Macbeth: Hi Gaya :)
    Bruce Mowbray: Doin' great. My neighbor just dropped in and brought me fresh peaches from his tree.
    Gaya Ethaniel: Hello Agatha and Bruce :)
    Bruce Mowbray: Hello, Gaya.
    Agatha Macbeth: Wow, yum
    Agatha Macbeth: Walkin' on the beaches, lookin' at the peaches...
    Bruce Mowbray: ;-)
    Gaya Ethaniel: :)
    Agatha Macbeth: How are you Gaya?
    Bruce Mowbray: Well . . . these are a different sort of peaches from those one would find on a beach, I suspect.
    Gaya Ethaniel: OK thanks you?
    Agatha Macbeth: Fine
    Gaya Ethaniel: :)
    Agatha Macbeth nods @ Bruce
    Bruce Mowbray: :-)

    Bruce nods, which strangely causes him to rise off the cushion

    Agatha Macbeth: Ah, levitation
    Gaya Ethaniel: ?
    Agatha Macbeth: Do you do the Indian rope trick?
    Bruce Mowbray seems to have no control over his nodding levitation animation.
    Agatha Macbeth: Well it looks cool
    Gaya Ethaniel: :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: Can I lower the fountain?
    Bruce Mowbray: That's the only one of my animations that requires a levitation.
    Agatha Macbeth: If you wish Gaya
    Agatha Macbeth: Hm, didn't know you could do that
    Gaya Ethaniel: Hello Calvino :)
    Bruce Mowbray: Oh my. I am impressed by your powers, Gaya.
    Calvino Rabeni: Hi, Bruce , Aga, Gaya
    Bruce Mowbray: Hi, Calvino.
    Agatha Macbeth: Hiya Cal :)
    Bruce Mowbray: Hi, Yaku.
    Agatha Macbeth: And hiya Yaku
    Gaya Ethaniel: Hello Yaku :)
    Agatha Macbeth: How goes it Cal?
    Calvino Rabeni: Is good
    Calvino Rabeni: I was wondering about the ground around here - what does it look like?
    Agatha Macbeth: Ground?
    Calvino Rabeni: Yes, outside the paviion
    Bruce Mowbray: looks green to me.
    Agatha Macbeth: Me too
    Calvino Rabeni: OK, today it looks like a sandy desert with scattered weeds
    Calvino Rabeni: A day at the beach
    Bruce Mowbray: . . . wow. there's synchronicity...
    Gaya Ethaniel: Everyone is converging on 'beach' theme today.
    Agatha Macbeth: Tumbleweed?
    Bruce Mowbray: any peaces on your beach, Cal?
    Bruce Mowbray: peaches.
    Agatha Macbeth grins
    Gaya Ethaniel: lol
    Bruce Mowbray: ;-)
    Agatha Macbeth: Or peaces?
    Agatha Macbeth: Peaces and love
    Agatha Macbeth: Maybe 'beach' is today's topic then?
    Bruce Mowbray: excellent topic -- (as would be virtually any other. . . )
    Gaya Ethaniel: And the losing battle to keep the everchanging coastline ...
    Bruce Mowbray: Wow --- Calvino's grass is a desert!
    Agatha Macbeth: I always think of a beach as a meeting-place between two worlds
    Gaya Ethaniel: Yes Agatha?
    Agatha Macbeth: Land and sea
    Bruce Mowbray: mmmmm..... liminal space -- a threshhold. . . an iniatiation place.
    Agatha Macbeth: Kinda symbolic
    pablito Steampunk: hello all ^^
    Agatha Macbeth: I always think of Bowie's video for 'Ashes to Ashes'
    Gaya Ethaniel: Hello pablito :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Hi Pab
    Bruce Mowbray: yo, pablito! Como estas, hombre?
    pablito Steampunk: bien Gracias ^^
    Agatha Macbeth: Ya ya
    Gaya Ethaniel: Two worlds meet ... inevitable friction?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hiya :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Not necessarily :)
    Agatha Macbeth: A change from one environment to another perhaps?


    Gaya Ethaniel: You know we all came from a lobe finned fish ...

    Did I just see Darwin walk in?

    Bruce Mowbray calls forth Blub for his wisdom on these matters.
    Bruce Mowbray: None
    Agatha Macbeth: I love to stand on a beach at sunset, watching the sun sinking slowly into the sea
    Gaya Ethaniel: :)
    Bruce Mowbray: Three worlds, then?
    Gaya Ethaniel: :)
    Agatha Macbeth: What is the third?
    Bruce Mowbray: Sun.
    Gaya Ethaniel: Sun :)
    Agatha Macbeth: The sun's a star!
    Agatha Macbeth: Doesn't count
    Bruce Mowbray: ha ha!
    Gaya Ethaniel: :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Where did the fishes come from tho Gaya?
    Gaya Ethaniel: How long does the light take to reach us from the Sun, do you know?
    Bruce Mowbray: 9 minutes.
    Agatha Macbeth: Yay
    Bruce Mowbray hates to break this news to the group, but the sun went out eight minutes ago. . . and. . . .
    Agatha Macbeth: We're dead
    Bruce Mowbray: well, in another minutes... yes.
    Gaya Ethaniel: Agatha, we need an biology expert!
    Agatha Macbeth looks around
    Bruce Mowbray: to see if we're dead?
    Agatha Macbeth: That too
    Gaya Ethaniel: I forget ... when I look at stars, I'm looking at the past.
    Agatha Macbeth: Sure are!
    Gaya Ethaniel: This fact never stop surprising me ...
    Bruce Mowbray: "Past" for the star -- "Present" for you.
    Agatha Macbeth: I blame Einstein
    Gaya Ethaniel: Two worlds meeting ... :)
    Bruce Mowbray: He did cause a lot of mischief.
    Bruce Mowbray: so. . . Is anyone keeping track of the number of worlds - and whether the sun has gone out yet?
    Gaya Ethaniel: :)
    Agatha Macbeth: i think we can safely say the Sun is still there
    Bruce Mowbray: surely a working hypothesis, aggers.
    Gaya Ethaniel: :)
    Agatha Macbeth: If it works, I'm easy
    Bruce Mowbray: Being presents us with the appearance of sun.
    Bruce Mowbray: (which is not another world, btw).
    Gaya Ethaniel: Hello Zon :)
    Bruce Mowbray: Yo, Zon.
    Agatha Macbeth: Hi Pelé...er, Zon :)
    Zon Quar: smiles
    Gaya Ethaniel: :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Zon awaiteth the rez....
    Agatha Macbeth: Och aye bruce, nice tartan
    Bruce Mowbray thinks: Ahhhh! The faith of youth!
    Agatha Macbeth: Do youth have faith?
    Bruce Mowbray: thanks -- It's in celebration of the up-coming retreat in Nova Scotia.
    Agatha Macbeth: New Scotland...
    Gaya Ethaniel: Is that pattern specific for that area?
    Bruce Mowbray: (Zon's faith that he will eventually rez.)
    Agatha Macbeth: :p
    Bruce Mowbray: Nope. NS's tartan is mostly blue -- this one is mostly green.
    Bruce Mowbray: and, in fact, this is a fake tartan--
    Gaya Ethaniel: ah ok
    Zon Quar: i know im goaan rezz
    Agatha Macbeth: A...fake tartan...[gasp]
    Bruce Mowbray: because all tartans are square in their patterns and this one is striped.
    Gaya Ethaniel: ah ok
    Agatha Macbeth: Right, I just noticed
    Bruce Mowbray: (another world -- where this tartan was made, I guess. . . ) How many worlds is that, so far?
    Bruce Mowbray: I've lost count.
    Agatha Macbeth: Pi R squared?
    Gaya Ethaniel: :)
    Agatha Macbeth: 42?
    Bruce Mowbray: thanks -- that helps.
    Agatha Macbeth: YW :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: :)
    Bruce Mowbray: Hey, Yaku -- How was your RL meet-up in Cologne yesterday?


    Agatha Macbeth: (Is he asleep again?)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: yes
    Yakuzza Lethecus: it was facinating
    Yakuzza Lethecus: it´s always great to meet pema
    Agatha Macbeth: :)
    Calvino Rabeni: Math question - what is the volume of a pizza of radius Z and thickness A ?
    Agatha Macbeth: e = mc2
    Calvino Rabeni: (not 42 BTW :)
    Zon Quar: yuna ?
    Zon Quar: tuna
    Agatha Macbeth: Lady Yuna?
    Calvino Rabeni: Answer - the volume is - PI Z Z A
    Zon Quar: hm..or Mr tuna
    Agatha Macbeth: She defeated Sin you know ;-)
    Zon Quar: pizza defeated sin ?
    Agatha Macbeth: No, Lady Yuna
    Zon Quar: havent met her ..yet
    Agatha Macbeth: not to be cofused with Lady Gaga
    Zon Quar: how sis she defeat sin ?
    Zon Quar: dud
    Zon Quar: did
    Agatha Macbeth: Or someone who CAN sing
    Agatha Macbeth: Dud did?
    Gaya Ethaniel: Isn't it Pi x 2Z x A?
    Zon Quar: no Lady tuna
    Agatha Macbeth: Fishy
    Agatha Macbeth: First beaches, now fish...
    Zon Quar: ah she made pizza
    Gaya Ethaniel: 2Z being the diameter ...
    Agatha Macbeth: What about the tangent?

    That strikes a chord! [slap]

    Calvino Rabeni: PI * Z ^^2 * A ?
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh
    Zon Quar: id like to meet her..sounds like a good chef
    Gaya Ethaniel: I'm curious ... how did you all choose your AV names?
    Agatha Macbeth: (Non sequitur?)
    Agatha Macbeth: Well I got mine from the name of a Zoroastrian hymn: a gatha
    pablito Steampunk: my profile explains all Gaya ^^
    Gaya Ethaniel: Are you a fire worshipper then? :)

    Agatha Macbeth: Maybe he wore a tartan ;-)
    pablito Steampunk: ha ha
    Agatha Macbeth: It also means 'good girl' in Greek btw :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: Calvino and Yaku are being mysterious ... :)
    Bruce Mowbray: I admired everything about Bruce -- his personality, his humility, his athletic prowess, and his ability to endure the rough places.
    Agatha Macbeth: They always are...
    pablito Steampunk: was he the real Bruce Almighty?
    Agatha Macbeth: Zap
    Gaya Ethaniel: Was that Bruce religious?
    Calvino Rabeni: Calvino Rabeni now has a sandwich :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Wow Cal
    Gaya Ethaniel: Calvino is a name of sandwich?
    Calvino Rabeni: Tuna by the way - hey Blub is not such species I hope?
    Agatha Macbeth: Could be
    Agatha Macbeth: No, he's a bluefish
    Bruce Mowbray rushes to put palms over Blub's ears.

    Do fish have ears?

    Gaya Ethaniel: :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Is Gaya the same as Gaia Gaya?
    Bruce Mowbray: (I was also wondering that about Gaya - Gaia.)
    Gaya Ethaniel: It's the name of a mountain in Korea and also an ancient kingdom.
    Agatha Macbeth: Ah
    Agatha Macbeth: That's something I didn't know


    pablito Steampunk: south or North Korea?

    Gaya Ethaniel: And this temple is located at the mountain - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haeinsa
    Agatha Macbeth remembers Tripitaka from 'Monkey' :)

    Gaya Ethaniel: You mean the legendary monkey who gets trapped in the Buddha's hand?
    Agatha Macbeth: That's the one :)
    Agatha Macbeth: 'Born from an egg on a mountain top'
    Gaya Ethaniel: Yes I watch an animated version of it when I was small.

    Agatha Macbeth: Yes, me too
    Agatha Macbeth: I really loved the TV series
    Agatha Macbeth: and the Water Margin too

    Agatha Macbeth: Oh, there you are
    Bruce Mowbray: Seems so.
    Agatha Macbeth: Appareently he couldn't play the violin either
    Bruce Mowbray: This gives no meaning to "quantum locality."
    Agatha Macbeth: What does?
    Bruce Mowbray: that we can run THROUGH each other like that.
    Agatha Macbeth: How about non-locality?
    Bruce Mowbray: How about duo-locality?
    pablito Steampunk: lol
    Agatha Macbeth: Quantum entanglement?
    Bruce Mowbray: . . . pardon me: The appearance of duo-non-locality.
