    "Dark matter: Do we need it?  What is it?  Where is it?  How much?
    What is it? What is it? What is it? What is it?"

    David Weinberg 

    One by one, the avatars make their entrance
    Eden Haiku: Good morning Storm!
    Storm Nordwind: Good morning Eden!
    Storm Nordwind: I see Eliza is trying to rez right on top of you!
    Eden Haiku: Oh oh!
    Eden Haiku: She is light as a cloud :))
    Storm Nordwind: As clear as vapor now :)
    Eden Haiku: Gone back into the ether of Real Wordl!
    Storm Nordwind notices that American spellings appeal to his sense of laziness :)
    Eden Haiku: Ah, the Bristish way would be vapour like armour for armor?
    Storm Nordwind: Correct (In more senses than one!;) As I say to my friends here "There's a reason it's called English" ;)
    Eden Haiku: :)
    Eden Haiku: I love your t-shirt 'I built the sacred museum' with your picture on it !
    Storm Nordwind: hehe! Thank you. It's a present from Adams this morning!
    Eden Haiku: How sweet of her!
    Storm Nordwind: I'm not normally given to wearing things with pictures of me on them - but I'll make an exception today
    Eden Haiku: Just brought my RL friend to see your Birman temple this morning, he loved it!
    Storm Nordwind: Great... Bhutanese actually :)
    Eden Haiku: Oh yes, Bhutanese, sorry...
    Storm Nordwind: Do I see a crow about to join us? :)
    Eden Haiku: Lady Corvuscorva is around?
    Corvuscorva Nightfire grins and swoops in.
    Storm Nordwind: Corvi! Hi!!
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: HI!!!!
    Eden Haiku: Yes she is, hello dear :))
    Storm Nordwind: You're sitting in the danger seat this morning Corvi ;)
    Eden Haiku: Clouds rezzing from there apparently...Where is Eliza gone by the way?
    Lila Darkmatter: Hi Storm and Eden and Corvi :)
    Storm Nordwind: Eliza has a habit of materializing right on top of whoever's there!
    Lila Darkmatter: This is Eliza :) I'm having issues with Eliza's account... haha
    Eden Haiku: Ah! Lila, how nice to see you again :)
    Storm Nordwind: Ah... a manifestation of Divine Play - good to see you :)
    Eden Haiku: Yes, I remember you are Eliza's dark matter side...:))
    Storm Nordwind chuckles
    Lila Darkmatter grins
    Lila Darkmatter: So nice to be here and I love your tshirt Storm!
    Storm Nordwind: A present from darling Adams :)
    Lila Darkmatter: :))
    Corvuscorva Nightfire waves to Eliza/lila
    Eden Haiku: So how are you feeling ladies, back from your arcadian forest retreat?
    Lila Darkmatter: Nice to see you Corvi :))
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: and you!
    Lila Darkmatter: I'm feeling wonderful... if a bit strange due to SL shenanigans of not letting me sign on as Eliza from my home base computer :)
    Storm Nordwind: Oh you were here
    Storm Nordwind: All misty
    Lila Darkmatter: I was?
    Eden Haiku: Strange indeed...
    Sartre Placebo: good morning everyone
    Lila Darkmatter: Hi Sartre
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: morning, Sartre.
    Eden Haiku: You rezzed as a cloud over the cushion where Corvi is sitting now.
    Eden Haiku: Hello Sartre :)
    Lila Darkmatter: The retreat is indeed affecting everything today... woke thinking of true wealth and still in wonderment of the 'lovingness' of the group together
    Storm Nordwind: (Eliza's inventory is probably rather large and takes longer to load than Lila's)
    Lila Darkmatter: and now natural to sign on to the richness of friendship here... settle in
    Eden Haiku: Oh, that is a lovely sensation: lovelingness...:)
    Pema Pera: Hi everybody!
    Lila Darkmatter: Hm, maybe that's it Storm. I'm not sure. This started before I left and I was able to sign on with my son's laptop :)
    Lila Darkmatter: Hi Pema! :)
    Eden Haiku: Hi Pema!
    Sartre Placebo: hi pema
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: Hi Pema
    Storm Nordwind: Good morning Pema!
    Lila Darkmatter: I was explaining that SL wouldn't allow Eliza to sign on... and also the wonderment at the lovingness of the retreat
    Pema Pera: (greetings from JFK, just before boarding my plane to Tokyo)
    Pema Pera: yes, it was lovely . . . .
    Pema Pera: and loving :)
    Pema Pera: the forest setting was similar and yet also totally different from our very first retreat in California
    Eden Haiku: Thanks for logging in from the airport Pema, that's sweet of you!
    Pema Pera: yw :-)
    Pema Pera: so nice to have the same fountain in every airport I pass through!
    Eden Haiku: How long is your flight?
    Lila Darkmatter: :)
    Pema Pera: and the same guardians around it
    Storm Nordwind chuckles
    Pema Pera: 14 hours
    WiFi everywhere!
    Pema Pera: and no internet still; if they had internet, I could possibly attend three PaB sessions in one flight!
    Lila Darkmatter: hahah
    Storm Nordwind thinks about the bandwidth needed to support 400 bored passengers in flight
    Sartre Placebo: i bet there will in 1-2 years :)
    Pema Pera: there was, 5-6 years ago
    Eden Haiku: Yes, howcome it takes so looong before we have Wifi everywhere!!!
    Pema Pera: but they discontinued, not enough interest . . . .
    Pema Pera: it will happen again!
    Lila Darkmatter: Wifi everywhere and no cars, Eden? :)
    Storm Nordwind: Now that's a pleasant thought!
    Eden Haiku: Yes wifi paradise with no cars!
    Pema Pera: So Linden Lab decided that Eliza needed a break, after the retreat, but then she found a way to sneak around that?
    Storm Nordwind: Ever resourceful she is!
    Eden Haiku: She did, sweet Eliza :)
    Lila Darkmatter: It seems so... through the hidden corridors...
    Lila Darkmatter: :)
    Pema Pera: clicking her heels, or setting off explosives . . . .
    Eden Haiku: Ah corridors between worlds...
    Eden Haiku: Enabling us to travel without cars :)
    Lila Darkmatter: It is a curious thing though... something having to do with this computer in particular... and yes that was the thought, Eden! :)
    Lila Darkmatter: maybe we learn to see/travel 'darkly'
    Eden Haiku: Ah, I love your capacity to see in the dark Lila! Your are a cat :)
    Lila Darkmatter grins
    Pema Pera: (just got another "anpan", red bean paste bun, yummy, wish I could share!)
    Storm Nordwind: mmmmmm
    Lila Darkmatter: sounds delicious
    Eden Haiku: yummm
    As Pema is eating his "anpan", three other avatars make their entrance and we dive into dark matter matters
    Pema Pera: he Bruce!
    Bruce Mowbray: Hi, Pema and everyone.
    Eden Haiku: Good morning Bruce :)
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: hello Bruce
    Storm Nordwind: Good morning Bruce
    Lila Darkmatter: Hi Bruce :)
    Lila Darkmatter: <---Eliza (just our secret-hah)
    Corvuscorva Nightfire laughs and pastes a big sign over Lila/eliza's head.
    Lila Darkmatter: hehehe
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: "I am Eliza, shhhh...don't tell anyone!"
    Lila Darkmatter giggling
    Pema Pera: We'll call her Elila
    Lila Darkmatter: Or Zilila
    Pema Pera: e-lila
    Lila Darkmatter: :)
    Pema Pera: btw, Lila, you should check out the homepage of an old friend and colleague of mine, David Weinberg: http://www.astronomy.ohio-state.edu/~dhw/
    Pema Pera: more than twenty years ago, when he was still a grad student, he did a "darkmatter rap"
    Pema Pera: it's on his home page, just above "other info"
    Pema Pera: here is the direct link: http://www.astronomy.ohio-state.edu/...kmatterrap.mp3
    Lila Darkmatter clicking...
    Pema Pera: and here are the lyrics: http://www.astronomy.ohio-state.edu/...ess/rap.lyrics
    Pema Pera: hi Lucinda and Adams!
    Sartre Placebo: hi adams,luci and i think i forgot bruce before
    Pema Pera: (needless to say, it is all correct on the astrophysics too)
    Lucinda Lavender: Hello all:)
    Adams Rubble: Hello Everyone :)
    Storm Nordwind: Good morning both
    Lila Darkmatter: Hi Lucinda, Adams :)
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: hello, Adams, Lucinda.
    Lila Darkmatter giggles at Eden's hover text [I put on a color changing hover text claiming: Lila is Eliza!]  
    Lucinda Lavender: nice!
    Pema Pera: :-)
    Eden Haiku: Yours didn't work Lila? Just wear it, than write /8 in local chat then type.
    Pema Pera: that's a great way to spread all kind of rumors!
    Sartre Placebo: hehe, i might need one of those too :)
    Eden Haiku: Good morning Lucinda! Listening to the rap Pema, it's fun!
    Lucinda Lavender: I am reading:)
    Eden Haiku: Sure!
    Lila Darkmatter: Oh, that's just great Pema. Thanks for sharing it
    Pema Pera: yw, Lila!
    Lila Darkmatter: mysteries are multiplying
    Bruce Mowbray: wow -- "Thank you, Any questions?"
    Bruce Mowbray: Love it!
    Pema Pera: :-)
    Lucinda Lavender: curious why I cannot open the link a second time..
    Eden Haiku: Just got to the any questions part of the rap ;)))
    Pema Pera: yes, nice to have a creation myth with "any questions?" at the end :-)
    Adams Rubble: where is the rap?
    Pema Pera: Here is another quote:
    Pema Pera: In the beginning the universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move. (Douglas Adams)
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: heh
    Lucinda Lavender: thx!
    Lila Darkmatter laughs
    Storm Nordwind: However the creator did leave a last, apologetic message to his creation :)
    Pema Pera: which is/was ?
    Pema Pera trying to remember . . . .
    Storm Nordwind: I can't tell you... that would spoil the surprise! But...
    Storm Nordwind: It is written in fire in letters thirty feet high on the far side of the Quentulus Quazgar Mountains in the land of Sevorbeupstry on the planet of Preliumtarn, which orbits the star Zarss, which is located in the Grey Binding Fiefdoms of Saxaquine.
    Pema Pera: ah yes, of course, how could I forget :-)
    Eden Haiku: smiles
    Lila Darkmatter: all so simple :)
    Deeper into the dark matter of numbers on a dangling day
    Pema Pera: btw, we don't have to wait for towel day . . . did you know about 42 day?
    Lila Darkmatter: (lila is comfortable with confusion so she sees everything as simple)
    Eden Haiku: That's a nice trait!
    Pema Pera: no light needed!
    Lila Darkmatter: :)
    Pema Pera: (42 day falls on 10/10/10, 61 more days)
    Lucinda Lavender: brb...must put the garbage out!
    Storm Nordwind thinks about how to celebrate it in SL
    Lila Darkmatter: Well, according to the site one needs a bus...
    Pema Pera: interestingly, 10/10/10 is also the first day of our Stuttgart PaB retreat!
    Lila Darkmatter: I have a camper... but no bus
    Lila Darkmatter: Ah!
    Pema Pera: we'll get there by (small) bus . . .
    Lila Darkmatter: It all makes sense now
    Lila Darkmatter: It wol makes sense now too
    Pema Pera: hahaha
    Pema Pera: wol willing
    Storm Nordwind chuckles
    Lila Darkmatter: indeed
    Storm Nordwind: That could become a catchphrase
    Pema Pera: after all, we did some wol gazing during the retreat . . . .
    Pema Pera: and it worked!
    Eden Haiku: 10/10/10 is the day! [I had given out the color changing hover text to both Sartre and Lila. Sartre's read "Lila is Eliza and Sartre is Yakuzza". I changed mine accordingly. Than, as he stopped wearing is, I changed mine to 10/10/10! while Lila was wearing her hover text: "Lila is Eliza". That kept me quiet for a while, fumbling with websites and hover text settings]
    Eden Haiku: 10/10/10 is a magic day!
    Pema Pera: now for one last little coincidence: elipses ( . . . ) are pronounced in Japanese as "ten ten ten" -- like when you tell a story in Japanese and at the end you let the reader dangling, you conclude with "ten ten ten" . . .
    Storm Nordwind: (Ah... that explains the icon of a famous Twitter poet)
    Lila Darkmatter: ooo now we're starting at the ten
    Eden Haiku: Oh! how interesting...the day we will be left dangling...
    Pema Pera: :-)
    Eden Haiku: Yes, was thinking the same thing Storm:)
    Pema Pera: dangling day . . .
    Pema Pera: (I see a title for this session coming up . . . )
    Eden Haiku: It's a number 3 day: the day of the empress of words and images :) in Tarot cards.
    Lila Darkmatter: Corridors perhaps look like: (((( ))))
    Eden Haiku: Your corridors metaphor is so powerful and simple yet Lila, I love it!
    Lila Darkmatter: or O.o
    Lila Darkmatter: (another type of wol gazing)
    Eden Haiku: O.o?
    Eden Haiku: Ah. like a owl, cute!
    Lucinda Lavender: ll is curious about wol gazing and corridors...
    Lucinda Lavender: will be happy to read later...
    Lila Darkmatter: you may be left dangling Lucinda... I'm curious too
    Lucinda Lavender: :)
    Eden Haiku: Corridors like parallel worlds...
    Lila Darkmatter: :)
    Lucinda Lavender: a dangling conversation...
    Pema Pera: btw. I googled for "tententen" but couldn't find much; only one song called "koibito tententen" which means "lovers . . . " ; see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Satomi_Sat%C5%8D
    Pema Pera: of course most references are not in roman letters, but in Japanese
    Eden Haiku: O.o@ Pema
    Eden Haiku: ^ _
    Pema Pera: (sorry: "koibito ha tententen")
    Eden Haiku: ^_
    Bruce Mowbray: Ha!
    Eden Haiku: Was trying to type a Japanese smile...
    Lila Darkmatter: :)
    Pema Pera: I guess the implication of the song is that the audience is left dangling, and the lovers are left tangling
    Lila Darkmatter: hahhah
    Bruce Mowbray: ;-)
    Eden Haiku: And also Pema has almost arrived in Japan even before he departed. Did'nt Eliza experienced something like that when she came back from Japan?
    Lila Darkmatter: yes, coming home :)
    Lila Darkmatter: I left and arrived at roughly the same time , on the same date
    Lila Darkmatter: having travelled 12 hrs
    Lila Darkmatter: *traveled
    Lila Darkmatter: or that's Eliza's memory anyway... very unreliable ;-)
    Eden Haiku: I like 'travelled' with two l...It is more wingy :)
    Adams leaves first, then Bruce, then Lila (lingering and dangling a bit :) and Lucinda question launches a topic that mushrooms like mushrooms until Pema's boarding time 
    Adams Rubble slips out quietly
    Pema Pera: bye Adams!
    Eden Haiku: Bye Adams :)
    Storm Nordwind waves
    Lila Darkmatter: yes, I'm fond of L's too...
    Lila Darkmatter: (Bye Adams)
    Lucinda Lavender: bye adams...
    Sartre Placebo: bye adams
    Lila Darkmatter: A funny session. Thank you Eden and everyone :)
    Lila Darkmatter: Safe travels Pema
    Eden Haiku: Thank you Lila, always nice to see you :)
    Bruce Mowbray also slips out -- saying thanks to all.
    Eden Haiku: Bye Bruce!
    Pema Pera: see you, everone who is leaving!
    Lucinda Lavender: bye Bruce
    Pema Pera: eliza had trouble getting in, lila has trouble getting out it seems :-)
    Lila Darkmatter: Funny that the chat text says "Fifteen minute bell has said something new"
    Lila Darkmatter: =P~
    Storm Nordwind: !!
    Pema Pera: ?
    Lila Darkmatter: Okay, okay.... here I go :) no longer lingering and dangling....
    Pema Pera: lingering lila . . .
    Storm Nordwind: Loitering Lila
    Lila Darkmatter: hahahhaa
    Lila Darkmatter: BIG HUGS! BYE!!
    Storm Nordwind waves
    Pema Pera: at airports no loitering!
    Eden Haiku: ;)
    Lucinda Lavender: In seeing the word cultivator above Pema's head I am wondering what he has seen popping up recently...
    Pema Pera: mushrooms
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: heh
    Pema Pera: lots of them, especially after the rain
    Lucinda Lavender: what color?
    Eden Haiku: on rotting logs...
    Pema Pera: in the forest around the retreat
    Pema Pera: yes, many of them in many colors
    Lucinda Lavender: nods
    Pema Pera: the rusty greys one were the most delicately textured
    Pema Pera: coming off the trunks of trees at right angles
    Pema Pera: the bright yellow ones appeared in the middle of paths preferentially, like traffic signs
    Lucinda Lavender: :)
    Pema Pera: the white one came in bunches, off the side of the paths, like bouquets
    Lucinda Lavender: ll is reminded of a dream...with a person in it saying...get ready for a time of transformation...a little like being a mushroom...
    Lucinda Lavender: constructing and deconstructing
    Pema Pera: yes, they are beautiful, and pop up so quickly!
    Lucinda Lavender: how lovely to see them
    Pema Pera: rotting, fermenting, transforming . . .
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: there was one mushroom that wasn't a mushroom but a very old plant.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: sans chlorophyll
    Pema Pera: how pretty, Corvi!
    Eden Haiku: Thanks Corvi, very unusual mushrooms!
    Lucinda Lavender: can't seem to open it...
    Corvuscorva Nightfire nods. I thought alot about these in that wealthy green forest as we walked by
    Pema Pera: the ugly duckling among the mushrooms . . . .
    Lucinda Lavender: would love to see tho
    Corvuscorva Nightfire nods I have never seen so many anywhere.
    Pema Pera: especially after the heavy rains on Thursday
    Pema Pera: alas, boarding time . . .
    Eden Haiku: Mushrooms do transform rotting logs into humus as time does transform our bodies every second...
    Pema Pera: so nice to see you all here!
    Eden Haiku: Safe travels Pema!!
    Lucinda Lavender: yes!
    Lucinda Lavender: safe travel to you Pema...
    Pema Pera: thank you!
    Storm Nordwind: Bon voyage!
    Pema Pera: bfn
    A new wave of exits after Pema's departure: Lucinda, Sartre and Storm soon go play as being elsewhere
    Eden Haiku: Remembers chatting here with Wester in Amsterdam's airport right to boarding time. Funny she was so close geographically, so unknown and yet it all felt familiar.
    Lucinda Lavender: airports are interesting places to me...
    Eden Haiku: Yes?
    Lucinda Lavender: everyone moving through them I guess...
    Eden Haiku: Ah yes, the mingling...
    Lucinda Lavender: on different schedules but together
    Eden Haiku: Like in a porpoise dance..
    Lucinda Lavender: :)?
    Eden Haiku: Going all different directions not bumping into each other, just moving with sentiny...
    Lucinda Lavender: ah

    Eden Haiku: *synthony [in terms of movement, graceful with timing]

    Lucinda Lavender: some kind of synchrony?

    Eden Haiku: Yes, in movements. Not sure of the word...
    Lucinda Lavender: yes
    Lucinda Lavender: time for morning chores...good day all...
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: bye Luci.
    Sartre Placebo: bye everyone
    Eden Haiku: Bye, have a nice day Lucinda!
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: bye, Sartre
    Eden Haiku: Bye Sartre,
    Storm Nordwind waves
    Eden Haiku: It's funny the way Sartre just vanishes from his seat!
    Storm Nordwind: Despite his elegance, he's not one for fancy exits
    Eden Haiku: ;)
    Eden Haiku: I like the way Steve flies off the roof sometimes...
    Storm Nordwind: I prefer to walk through the trees
    Eden Haiku: Remember the flying carpet you brought at the New Year party Storm?
    Storm Nordwind: yes!
    Eden Haiku: I loved that!
    Storm Nordwind smiles
    Eden Haiku: Ever tried it Corvi?
    Storm Nordwind must also return now
    Storm Nordwind: Bye Eden, bye Corvi
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: bye storm, no i didn't Eden
    Eden Haiku: Bye Storm ;) Have a nice day!
    Eden Haiku: It's an amazing flying carpet! We have to convince Storm to bring it to a next session!
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: heh!
    As Corvuscorva and I are soon joined by Blissful, we talk about the usefulness of recording the sessions and about the Friday 6 am "Time Sessions".
    Eden Haiku: I saw that you organize New Orleans retreat?
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: oh! yes. That's the plan
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: I've never been there, and would love to go.
    Eden Haiku: Oh! I thought you lived there!
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: airfares are reasonable from where I live, so I think I can manage a pre trip, trip.
    Eden Haiku: Ah, yes. Nice; )
    Eden Haiku: Have you been doing some writing lately?
    Eden Haiku: Journaling during the retreat?
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: not during the retreat no.
    Eden Haiku: Ah, too much going on?
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: nods
    Eden Haiku: Hi Blissful :)
    Eden Haiku: Have you been here before Blissfull?
    Eden Haiku: Oh yes, I remember reading about the fish on the back in a log :) Do you agree about being recorded?
    Blissful Badger: Morning Eden, yes I agree
    Blissful Badger: I think I'm still wearing that fish, aren't I?
    Eden Haiku: You already have a notecard about Play as Being I suppose?
    Blissful Badger: Yes. I've been here before a few times. Thanks for asking
    Eden Haiku: Yes you are...is it from April 1st? :)
    Blissful Badger: ?
    Blissful Badger: april fool?
    Eden Haiku: Yes, that's what I meant...
    Blissful Badger: Do you have me on record as being here on April 1?
    Blissful Badger: being
    Blissful Badger: and playing
    Eden Haiku: Oh, I don't know, I'm just saying because of the fish...
    Blissful Badger: ? I was wearing the fish yesterday when I was here. That's the only time
    Blissful Badger: Because I had gone swimming and was jealous of Blub
    Blissful Badger: :-)
    Eden Haiku: Oh I see...
    Blissful Badger: Eden, can you answer a question about PaB for me?
    Eden Haiku: With pleasure, if I know the answer :) I see you are interested in community building...
    Blissful Badger: Yes! I wonder why there IS a record of the conversations. What purpose does it serve?
    Eden Haiku: My feeling is that, without it, there wouldn't be a community.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire thinks.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: the purpose for myself is to let me share the conversation and ideas with people who can't be at the session
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: I actually used to read all the logs
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: even if I couldn't come
    Eden Haiku: PaB being an experiment, it is very useful to have records of how this experiment is being done.
    Blissful Badger: A community needs a written record? Do you think others read it?
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: i think that we do.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: and that we refer back to some ideas in it.
    Eden Haiku: Oh yes, I read most of the logs most of the time :)
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: I think the time I was a scribe, even when i didn't read every log anymore
    Eden Haiku: So I feel close to people I almost never meet.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: it helped me to create new ideas in my own head
    Blissful Badger: Ok thanks, that helps. I haven't had time to read the logs - there must be hours of them!
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: yes, I've had that experience, too, though it's a little erie sometimes
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: like knowing people the way one knows a celebrity or an author.
    Blissful Badger: ;-)
    Corvuscorva Nightfire smiles warmly.
    Eden Haiku: Well, I never was able to catch up with the prehistoric times of PaB, but I try to keep the pace of the logs now, :)
    Eden Haiku: Yes, much like knowing an author by reading his or her books...
    Blissful Badger: I find that when I'm here it's immersive and deeply in the present. To read that experience as a past history would be odd for me
    Blissful Badger: I should have a look at the records, obviously!!
    Eden Haiku: Well, the experience is different when you only read, that's for sure :)
    Corvuscorva Nightfire nods.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: very much different to "consume" than to participate
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: but I read participatorily.
    Blissful Badger: So much of the time we're struggling to work things through.
    Blissful Badger: To make sense of things collectively.
    Eden Haiku: Even reading a session you just participated in is quite an experience. You realize you missed parts of the chat, misunderstood a few things...It is very enlightening.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: reading the logs is sometimes like doing the research before you start writing the paper.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: where you argue and chew over in your mind
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: and then come to a session and "write the paper"
    Blissful Badger: Nice but fortunately we don't have a paper to write!
    Corvuscorva Nightfire writes the paper in her mind all the time.
    Blissful Badger: because we are always talking about different things
    Eden Haiku: Some of us do. At the Time sessions...
    Blissful Badger: That's on Fridays isn't it?
    Blissful Badger: at noon?
    Eden Haiku: We write reports of our experiment with time after reading chapters of Pema's book on the wiki.
    Eden Haiku: Yes, let me localize the wiki link.
    Blissful Badger: Oh - this is interesting
    Eden Haiku: http://wiki.playasbeing.org/PaB_Books/Magic_of_Time
    Eden Haiku: You will find Pema's chapters as he writes along about "Exploring the Magic of Time" as well as our reports of our own experiences.
    Blissful Badger: Thank you!
    Eden Haiku: We gather here every Friday morning at 6 am SLT and it's an open meeting, everyone is welcome :)
    Blissful Badger: 6AM is a bit early for me - is it still going by 7AM?
    Blissful Badger: SLT is my time
    Eden Haiku: Yes, the session after sometimes connect to the 'time' theme, but not always. But see, you can read the session on the wiki, it is also recorded!
    Eden Haiku: Yes, 6 am is early for you :)
    Blissful Badger: Ha - you're absolutely right. I'm going to look at this now. Thank you. CU both later.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: bye for now!
