    Calvino Rabeni: Good evening and hello again, Bruce :)
    Bruce Mowbray: Yo, Calvino!
    Bruce Mowbray: Will you be getting out a gaze at the Persiods tonight?
    Calvino Rabeni: Good evening Rainbow Woman :)
    Bruce Mowbray: Yo, Paradiso!
    Paradise Tennant: smiles good evening .. Cal .. Bruce :)
    Bruce Mowbray: Your usual beautiful self, if I might be sayin' so.
    Paradise Tennant: smiles thank you :)
    Paradise Tennant: how are you both this eveing :)
    Bruce Mowbray: ahhh -- tis an evenin' for gazin' at the meteors, aye!
    Calvino Rabeni: Yes, thanks for reminding me - I nearly forgot :)
    Paradise Tennant: looks out her window .. :) only city lights I am afraid .
    Calvino Rabeni: And great luck - clear skies, obliging weather
    Calvino Rabeni: Well, city lights are a problem here
    Paradise Tennant: smiles
    Bruce Mowbray: aye -- a wonderful evening 'tis.
    Bruce Mowbray: there be no lights in these parts -- or I'd chanse em away with a stick!
    Bruce Mowbray: chase.
    Paradise Tennant: lol
    Calvino Rabeni: A few years ago I drove up into a remote mountain pass (7000' elevation) and camped out in the truck bed for the night. It's great these happen in the warm part of summer
    Paradise Tennant: that sounds .. really nice ! .. lying on your back watching the skies dance with colour and fire :)
    Bruce Mowbray: aye -- and a memorable night 'tis!
    Calvino Rabeni: There should be a "how I feel" word for "like Paradise's dress looks"
    Paradise Tennant: hmmm resplendent .. alive ... in every depth :)
    Calvino Rabeni: *Every* depth - I like that
    Paradise Tennant: we could make one up
    Paradise Tennant: smiles
    Bruce Mowbray: Blub has suggested "orgasmic," but I slapped him up-side the gills for that.
    Bruce Mowbray: Yo, stevo!
    stevenaia Michinaga: waves to all
    Paradise Tennant: hiya steve :)
    Calvino Rabeni: Calvino Rabeni remembers movies using fireworks for the same idea
    Paradise Tennant: Blub is lively tonight and Bruce and Cal get to watch meteors !
    stevenaia Michinaga: clouds here :(
    Bruce Mowbray: Aye! Fire in the sky! AYE!
    Bruce Mowbray: Here's a movie that metaphors orgasms with fireworks, Cal:
    Bruce Mowbray: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0048491/
    Bruce Mowbray: But you're likely too wee a lad to recall that one -- but I recall it well.
    Calvino Rabeni: This energy of the dress is something different isn't it - it has "being" and doesn't look like something quickly to burn out
    Calvino Rabeni: and it has multiple depths and scales
    Bruce Mowbray: unlike orgasms and fireworks (and meteors)
    Calvino Rabeni: it's more like a multi-verse
    Calvino Rabeni: and I can't tell if its direction is inward-going or outward-going
    Calvino Rabeni: as it seems to be both at once
    Calvino Rabeni: Does it absorb energy? Or emit it?
    Calvino Rabeni: It's very hmmmm, eidetic I gues
    Paradise Tennant: eidetic ?
    Calvino Rabeni: if you put a pin, to touch a point of it, a different image could emerge at each point
    Calvino Rabeni: eidetic means, mental images of a "live" quality
    Paradise Tennant: smiles much like reality .. we each are sort of little pins .. different images different perspectives
    Calvino Rabeni: with moving energy inside, and unfolding
    Calvino Rabeni: yes
    Paradise Tennant: smiles looks at her .. image of reality .. surrounded by things she knows .. odd how .. it can be shared :) quite easily in a way .. like we are not only pins but maybe bridges too :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: I view an image as a pin, yet someone wlse may see something very different from the same image
    Calvino Rabeni: If it were the same image - maybe it's more real than image
    Calvino Rabeni: accounting for its ability to present differently to the different seers
    Calvino Rabeni: the image gets credit as does the seer
    stevenaia Michinaga: the joys of trying to convy one pin results in infinite variety of perpsectives
    stevenaia Michinaga: hello Eos
    Bruce Mowbray: Yo, Eos!
    Bruce Mowbray: Yo, Pamala!
    Eos Amaterasu: Yo, bros and sis's
    Pamala Clift: hi all
    Bruce Mowbray: Aye!
    Eos Amaterasu: Hi Pam
    Paradise Tennant: hiya pamela .. good to see you !
    Eos Amaterasu: Tartans ho!
    Bruce Mowbray: Ah, tis a beautiful skirt ye be wearin' tonight, my bonnie lassie!
    Pamala Clift: hello all.
    Paradise Tennant: smiles
    Bruce Mowbray is leaving now to watch the meteors.
    Bruce Mowbray: Good night, everyone.

    Pamala Clift: yes a couple of times

    Pamala Clift: yes
    Calvino Rabeni: The meditation was good, I think those present here enjoyed it
    Calvino Rabeni: Actually we don't often do that

    Paradise Tennant: nite steve :)
    Paradise Tennant: how have you been cal :) ... have not seen you in awhile :)
    Calvino Rabeni: Very well ... although feeling inarticulate about just how that is.
    Paradise Tennant: smiles
    Calvino Rabeni: There's been a run of "perfect" weather - confortable, good air, kind of pristine
    Paradise Tennant: yes revelling in it too .. the winter boots are already in our stores ..
    Paradise Tennant: sigh
    Calvino Rabeni: And I have felt internally, a bit like your dress :)
    Paradise Tennant: sounds like a nice way to be :)
    Paradise Tennant: light being :)
    Calvino Rabeni: I feel like doing things to enjoy and remember the summer quality
    Calvino Rabeni: I went for a mountain hike over the weekend
    Paradise Tennant: nice !
    Calvino Rabeni: and am noticing the wild berries and other luxuries of nature
    Calvino Rabeni: I was thinking, I'd like to rent a canoe and go out on the lake, kind of drift in the reeds and lilly pads
    Calvino Rabeni: they are flowering
    Calvino Rabeni: it is a kind of "celebrate summer" ritual
    Paradise Tennant: nods .. they are alive with life .. use to canoe up in algonquin park alot ..always amazed at how densely populated the reeds were :)
    Paradise Tennant: teeming
    Calvino Rabeni: yes it is a special magical world - forgotten virtually all the time during the winter life of a city
    Paradise Tennant: thinks there is magic everywhere ..you just have to peek under the corners :)
    Calvino Rabeni: Yes! And you, Paradise? Noticing that around where you are these days?
    Paradise Tennant: lol
    Paradise Tennant: when I poke my head out of work .. to notice there is world ..yes very much so ..

    Calvino Rabeni: Good evening, Adoro
    adoro Rhapsody: good morning cal
    Paradise Tennant: good morning adoro :)
    Calvino Rabeni: "There actually is one" : hooray :)
    adoro Rhapsody: wow
    Calvino Rabeni: Yep. as Bruce has reminded, we're in it and can't fall out
    adoro Rhapsody: when calvino created his avatar the avatar created calvino
    adoro Rhapsody: jesus was an avatar of god
    adoro Rhapsody: and god maybe an avatar of men ?
    Paradise Tennant: have you been to pab before adoro :) would you like a notecard ?
    Calvino Rabeni: Yes that makes sense
    adoro Rhapsody: creation or evolution ?
    Calvino Rabeni: In that way of seeing, pehaps we're all avatars of god
    adoro Rhapsody: god maybe manmade
    adoro Rhapsody: made
    adoro Rhapsody: self-made
    adoro Rhapsody: God as a service
    adoro Rhapsody: God as a self-service
    adoro Rhapsody: wow
    adoro Rhapsody: u let be feelings here i ve never had before
    adoro Rhapsody: so that was what i had to say
    adoro Rhapsody: now i am in listening mode again
    adoro Rhapsody: lets go to paradise
    Paradise Tennant: smiles god as stillness :)
    adoro Rhapsody: mmmm
    Calvino Rabeni: god as sparlky-ness
    adoro Rhapsody: u make a good couple
    adoro Rhapsody: calvino in paradise
    Calvino Rabeni: I was talking to a friend today, about the apparent "negative bias" about how human thinking gets involved with things
    Calvino Rabeni: and noticing that - I think, - we make some efforts to counteract it - to get a truer view
    Paradise Tennant: nods things!
    Calvino Rabeni: things issues conditions etc.
    adoro Rhapsody: yes is man the weakest or the strongest part of the chain ?
    Calvino Rabeni: including self as thing or condition, shakespeares "slings and arrows"
    Calvino Rabeni: a web, perhaps, humans might have lots of help
    Paradise Tennant: nods
    adoro Rhapsody: is this sunset or sunrise ?
    Paradise Tennant: lol
    Calvino Rabeni: who else could invent god? how strrong is that?
    adoro Rhapsody: the light here
    Paradise Tennant: smiles lovely thing about SL  you get to choose.
    Calvino Rabeni: I don't know, I set time to midday :)
    adoro Rhapsody: ok
    Paradise Tennant: likes sunset the colours are softer :)
    adoro Rhapsody: u can set your own time
    adoro Rhapsody: and time does not matter
    Paradise Tennant: lol
    Calvino Rabeni: Actually I don't have a sense for direction in SL - which way is East?
    Paradise Tennant: smiles
    Calvino Rabeni: I read an article about how the language of certain forest tribes, has only absolute directions, not anything relative to a person like left and right
    Paradise Tennant: well you could just use your rl co-ordinates and orient east to where you are in physical form
    Calvino Rabeni: it helps them always remember which way is which
    Calvino Rabeni: which is important to not getting lost in the forest
    Paradise Tennant: we create the tools we need .. language was one of our best tools on some levels
    Calvino Rabeni: And when those people were asked to arrange several objects by time sequence, the direction was always relative to the world, not relative to which way they were personally facing
    Calvino Rabeni: I found that a bit surprising
    Paradise Tennant: smiles
    Calvino Rabeni: Paradise, this might be a good time for me to view the RL sunset
    Calvino Rabeni: so I'm going to log out
    Calvino Rabeni: thanks for the discussions and ideas :)
    Paradise Tennant: ok good nite .. cal ..
    Calvino Rabeni: Bye <3
    Paradise Tennant: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bT-fctr32pE
    Paradise Tennant: just for the log  to end it with a smile.. :)
