    stevenaia Michinaga: sure Arch
    Archmage Atlantis: K
    Archmage Atlantis: It is a communication device
    Aphrodite Macbain: I'm waiting for it to perform
    Archmage Atlantis: It relays our progress as a planet to the civilized portion of the galaxy
    Aphrodite Macbain: civilized?
    Aphrodite Macbain: as in populated by sentient beings?
    Lawrence Vyceratops: It'll be a long wait for them!
    Archmage Atlantis: It is a shamanic totem., brought forward by magic

    Aphrodite Macbain: And whater we chose to make it
    Aphrodite Macbain: Paradise- you are a star in the galaxy
    Paradise Tennant: smiles
    Paradise Tennant: I know I like shiny things :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: looks great at night
    Paradise Tennant: smiles does anyone have a topic they would like to explore
    Archmage Atlantis: I should go outr and look at the night sky
    Archmage Atlantis: when I was a kid
    Archmage Atlantis: There were stars
    Aphrodite Macbain: are there no stars to see now?
    Archmage Atlantis: Then as light came here
    Paradise Tennant: they seem so close some times
    Archmage Atlantis: they disappeared
    stevenaia Michinaga: (raining hard here)
    Aphrodite Macbain: yes. being in a city has big drawbacks
    Aphrodite Macbain: Every year Canada turns of all its lights at the same time (doesn't work as well as it could) but the difference is amazing
    Aphrodite Macbain: From 8-9pm
    stevenaia Michinaga: what a good idea
    Paradise Tennant: yes it is a great idea
    Aphrodite Macbain: makes you aware of how much power we use
    Aphrodite Macbain: It's nice to see the lights go out in the high rises
    Aphrodite Macbain: amazing from a plane's perspective
    Archmage Atlantis: Hello,Lawrence
    Archmage Atlantis: You came to tell us what?
    Aphrodite Macbain: When I s?
    Aphrodite Macbain: oops
    Aphrodite Macbain: Paradise, is there something you would like to discuss?
    Paradise Tennant: hmmm
    stevenaia Michinaga: I began by talking about my headcold and the altered reality if brings to me
    Paradise Tennant: yes .. maybe the concept of being puzzled by time ..I have been really enjoying the exihibit
    Paradise Tennant: lol
    Paradise Tennant: that too !
    stevenaia Michinaga: I like that better :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: I don't think I am puzzled by time. Just intimidated by it
    stevenaia Michinaga: dificult to rap your hands or much else around time, better to just let it be
    stevenaia Michinaga: like the fountain here
    Aphrodite Macbain: Time for me is speeding up. Never enough of it
    Aphrodite Macbain: Maybe I'm speeding up
    Paradise Tennant: yes
    Paradise Tennant: often think there is no time that our ordering of appearances is sort of like a handy filing system for appearances that change alot :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: could you say more?
    stevenaia Michinaga: was going to ask to break that down a bit too
    Paradise Tennant: well .. time is like a filing system for a constant variety of shifting matter .. but it does not exist in its own right
    Paradise Tennant: would be my guess
    Aphrodite Macbain: Intersting metaphor - what is it filing? Episodes in your life?
    Paradise Tennant: no
    Paradise Tennant: just .. patterns
    Paradise Tennant: smiles
    Aphrodite Macbain: how does it relate to us?
    Paradise Tennant: well we are part of the pattern
    Paradise Tennant: connected
    Aphrodite Macbain: So it operates separately from us?
    Paradise Tennant: perceivng it
    Paradise Tennant: smiles
    stevenaia Michinaga: pattern of conciosness?
    Paradise Tennant: not sure guessing here :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: Time only became importrant to us in the industrial revolution and the concept of progress - things getting better with time
    Paradise Tennant: yes
    Aphrodite Macbain: before then it was more of a cyclical notion of time based on the seasons and agricultural patterns
    Aphrodite Macbain: The notion that things improve with time is a relatively new onw
    Lawrence Vyceratops: There is also time in the sense of memory. I was cold, now I am warm.
    Aphrodite Macbain: one
    Aphrodite Macbain: comparative
    Aphrodite Macbain: but is that change cyclical or progressive?
    stevenaia Michinaga: progress?, from where to where?
    Aphrodite Macbain: you'll eventuially get cold again
    Aphrodite Macbain: from worse to better - was the concpt
    Paradise Tennant: smiles
    Aphrodite Macbain: The concept of progress has been running the way we have been doing things for the last 100 years
    Paradise Tennant: yes shifting patterns
    Aphrodite Macbain: funny that things don't really get better, they just change
    stevenaia Michinaga: nods, staying the "same" never seems to be acceptable
    Aphrodite Macbain: right steve
    Aphrodite Macbain: there seems to be a constant hunger for the new and different
    Aphrodite Macbain: especailly with technology
    stevenaia Michinaga: as if having (more) makes things better
    Aphrodite Macbain: and then you die....:-)
    stevenaia Michinaga: looking to make progress by sleeping...night all
    Aphrodite Macbain: speaking of time, I have to go now
    Lawrence Vyceratops: Science and technology is making some things better, but it is also destroying us much better, unfortunately.
    Aphrodite Macbain: exactly, we gain and we loose.
    Lawrence Vyceratops: g'night, Aph.
    Paradise Tennant: g nite aph :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: Nite all - Lawrence, Paradise, Arch, Steve
