    The Guardian for this meeting was SophiaSharon Larnia. The comments are by SophiaSharon Larnia. This session was attended by Eos, Bolonath, Bertram and myself. I grab the log because I really did think that it was open (sorry Bert!!) but then unexpected visitors arrived and I had to go. Don’t you love how life can be unpredictable?

    This session was a little about Eos's application on the wiki (soon to be released?) and about the social aspects of meditation.

    SophiaSharon Larnia: hi Bolonath, hi Eos :)
    Eos Amaterasu: Hi SophiaSharon
    Eos Amaterasu: I don't see Bolonath
    Bolonath Crystal: namaste :)
    Eos Amaterasu: Oh, there!
    SophiaSharon Larnia: :)
    Eos Amaterasu: Hi!
    SophiaSharon Larnia: I can claim this session, if noone has done so
    Bolonath Crystal: freshly incarnated ;)


    SophiaSharon Larnia looked for the droplet test page and rested in the 90 seconds instead :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: is it active, Eos?
    Eos Amaterasu joined her there
    Eos Amaterasu: Yes it is (though one more bug to fix)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: I see, I love the idea
    Eos Amaterasu: Bolo, I've written a little web app which offers a button to click when you're about todo the 9 secs, and then adds your name to a list and shows names of others, if any, at that 9 secs
    Eos Amaterasu: Not quite ready for prime time yet, though
    SophiaSharon Larnia: smiles
    Eos Amaterasu: SophiaSharon, you're more than welcome to improve its appearance
    Bolonath Crystal: ehm... what is it good for?
    Eos Amaterasu: presence
    Eos Amaterasu: just a little app to let you know who else is doing the 9 secs, anywhere in the world, at the same time as you are
    Eos Amaterasu: social presence
    Bolonath Crystal: ic
    SophiaSharon Larnia: so sorry rl distractions :)
    Eos Amaterasu: when we do 90 secs here we are "together" in SL space
    Eos Amaterasu: and all over the world in "RL" space
    Bolonath Crystal: :)
    Bolonath Crystal: we are never truely parted :)
    Eos Amaterasu: with the 9 secs app, if you had it on your iPhone, for example, you could connect with (0 or more other) people at any timeanywhere
    Eos Amaterasu: Would that make it more fun or more possible to tune into the space of the 9 or 90 or 900000000 seconds?
    Bolonath Crystal: it wouldn't make any difference to me. to me the 9 sec are a rather individual exercise
    Bolonath Crystal: like meditation
    Eos Amaterasu: Some people have expressed that they feel they have no one in RL to relate with in the way they can with this SL community of PaBers
    SophiaSharon Larnia: please excuse me, unexpected visitors, have to go


    Eos Amaterasu: Ciao, SSL!
    Bolonath Crystal: cu sophia
    SophiaSharon Larnia: didnt mean to pop in and run whoops!
    Bolonath Crystal: i'm pretty unsocial, lol
    Bolonath Crystal: at least in meditation
    Eos Amaterasu: well I guess in a formal 9 or 90 or whatever period of dropping or meditating you don't talk to other people....
    Eos Amaterasu: (except in your head)
    Bolonath Crystal: usually not, right :)
    Eos Amaterasu: (or maybe typing chat 'cause you didn't notice the 90 secs bell or fountain)
    Eos Amaterasu: Maybe there's a more sociable aspect to meditating as in letting being be is that it's open, friendly (or at least merciful!)
    Bolonath Crystal: well, you can let the atmosphere carry you
    Eos Amaterasu: whatever's there?
    Bolonath Crystal: would it be openness otherwise?
    Eos Amaterasu: The interesting thing about meeting here in the SL playgoda is that we are not alone
    Eos Amaterasu: I suppose throughout the day there could be similar awareness
    Bolonath Crystal: for me the sharing of experiences is more interesting than gathering for exercises
    Bolonath Crystal: and yes, i always try to keep this awareness all day long
    Bolonath Crystal: but life can be distractive sometimes ...
    Bolonath Crystal: after a while i realize the distraction and go back to being again
    Bolonath Crystal: and so the game continues *g*
    Eos Amaterasu: probably the more you are coming from Being the more tolerant you can be of distractions
    Eos Amaterasu: but the trick is to come from Being
    Bolonath Crystal: i hope so


    Eos Amaterasu: I used "tolerance" as a kind of framing for the 90 seconds
    Eos Amaterasu: noticing, and allowing
    Eos Amaterasu: by the time you've noticed it's already gone :-)
    Bolonath Crystal: percepting without judging
    Bolonath Crystal: we have about 0.2 sec to do the one and un-do the other
    Bolonath Crystal: namaste bert :)
    Bertram Jacobus: hello you two
    Eos Amaterasu: Hi bert
    Bertram Jacobus: sry - i forgot my duty to take this session ...
    Bertram Jacobus: am in hamburg at the station, a bit lost ...
    Bolonath Crystal: oops
    Eos Amaterasu: ah - I think SophiaSharon claimed the log
    Eos Amaterasu: but then had to leave
    Eos Amaterasu: lost in the train station?
    Bertram Jacobus: ok. and when i claim it now - i get the claim from the whole session ?
    Bolonath Crystal: i think so, bert, but never tried it
    Bertram Jacobus: a bit, yes. the freind i am visiting was not to be reached at the phone
    Eos Amaterasu: hmm, not sure - I would just leave it with SophiaSharon
    Bertram Jacobus: but now, finally, i got him
    Eos Amaterasu: maybe email her that you got here, and she can send you the link
    Bertram Jacobus: hmm - okay - will later ask wol how that functions with the logs exactly - to know it better in the future
    Eos Amaterasu: train station wifi?
    Bertram Jacobus: and sry for having disturbed you in an intersting talk may be ! (?) ...
    Bolonath Crystal: i learned about a new tool for the 90 sec break
    Bertram Jacobus: no - i have such a stick. okay - that´s wifi too kinda - but i payed and get access in many german areas - where the sendings are good enough ...
    Bertram Jacobus: which one bolo !? :-)
    Bolonath Crystal: i better let eos explain
    Bolonath Crystal: i'm not so fit in web technics
    Bertram Jacobus: and i´m not sure, whether i´m welcome here in the train information area ... just sitting ... and using the seats ... hm ...
    Eos Amaterasu: I have a test web page (sent you a link)
    Eos Amaterasu: oh.... such fun to have you in train station and here at the same time :-)
    Bertram Jacobus: hehe - yes funny on the one hand, bit embarassing at another ... ;-)
    Eos Amaterasu: idea is to have a very simple way, when you're about to do the 9 seconds, of clicking a button and seeing who else is in that 9 seconds with you
    Bertram Jacobus: ah ! interesting ...
    Eos Amaterasu: similar to being here in SL
    Bertram Jacobus: yes, ok
    Eos Amaterasu: you look aufgeknöpft
    Bertram Jacobus: lol - sry ? ;-)
    Eos Amaterasu: unbuttoned (that's how Beethoven described his 8th symphony)
    Bertram Jacobus: hmmm - intersting again - not sure how i could understand that ...
    Eos Amaterasu: your shirt is unbuttoned...
    Eos Amaterasu: speaking of which, I have to undo my presence here.... bye Bolo, bye Bert!
    Bolonath Crystal: bye
    Bertram Jacobus: oops - that was fast
    Bolonath Crystal: yep. you scared eos away being unbuttoned ;)
