    Calvino Rabeni: Hello Observer
    observerm Resident: hello Calvino
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Hi Cal; you can say 'hi' to me too, you know; it's allowed
    Calvino Rabeni: Rhiannon ? ! Hey !
    Calvino Rabeni: Hi, that is
    Calvino Rabeni: Sorry I was bemused here, didn't see you
    Rhiannon Dragoone: :)
    Calvino Rabeni: Are you mobile, Rhia?
    Rhiannon Dragoone: mobile but laggy
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Last time i tried sitting i was put in a blue space.
    Calvino Rabeni: Would you like to have a seat ?
    Calvino Rabeni: What is a blue space?
    Rhiannon Dragoone: well, sometimes there is a glitch in sl, and you end up in a blue void
    Rhiannon Dragoone: well, that worked this time
    Rhiannon Dragoone: :)
    Calvino Rabeni: LIke falling into the ocean underneath, I believe
    Rhiannon Dragoone: i like the almost unnatural blue of the Carribean
    Rhiannon Dragoone: But you aren't deprived of your senses like when there is the SL glitch
    Calvino Rabeni: Its not permanent I think
    Rhiannon Dragoone: no, but it sometimes lasts for long enough you have to log; glad it didn't happen this time
    Calvino Rabeni: It would be interesting to have a list of all the second life rare bizarre or anamolous phenomena people have noticed
    Rhiannon Dragoone: yeah, it would; would help noobies immensely
    Rhiannon Dragoone: hi Avy!
    Avy Runner: hi all :)
    Rhiannon Dragoone: cute avi, Avy
    Avy Runner: thanks :)
    Calvino Rabeni: Or maybe just bemuse them, or scare them
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Cal, of course that's possible; but it would have helped me if i had known what is a glitch and what isn't
    Calvino Rabeni: For the SL noobies, it would be useful to have them at least categorized by what to do, such as just wait a bit, or relog, or whatever
    Calvino Rabeni: when I was learning to ride a motorcycle, I remember a web site with "101 Ways to Drop Your Bike"
    Calvino Rabeni: and it made me realize I wasn't involved in a simple predictable endeavor
    Calvino Rabeni: and had to give up, I think, the idea of learning as a simple pattern
    Rhiannon Dragoone: learning is never simple
    Calvino Rabeni: Hi Avy
    Avy Runner: hi Cal :)
    Calvino Rabeni: So, may I ask, who has something in mind, that is interesting ?

    Avy Runner: well, who is our newbie here (looking at the man on the pick) ?
    Rhiannon Dragoone: i need to go, i just realized
    Rhiannon Dragoone: So i guess it is the newbie's pick
    Rhiannon Dragoone: tc Avy, Cal, Observer
    Avy Runner: bye Rhi
    Calvino Rabeni: Come again Rhiannon :)
    Calvino Rabeni: I call him Stone Man. He is a stone statue representing an indigenous jungle dweller, in a secret valley on an island in the Gulf of Siam
    Avy Runner: ah yes, was wondering if it was a statue, or somebody using clay
    Avy Runner: as part of religion or other rites
    Calvino Rabeni: I don't think so...more like a museum I think - a way to remember who came before
    Avy Runner: a tribute
    Avy Runner: and why is Stone Man with us today?
    Calvino Rabeni: When I arrived, the place was deserted ... I wanted to pull in some ghostly presence to keep me company
    Calvino Rabeni: (a kind of builder's doodle, I suppose)
    Avy Runner: ah...... I understand
    Avy Runner: a doodle :)
    Calvino Rabeni: And it might qualify as a statement about Time or Identity or something for an Art project
    Calvino Rabeni: All I have to do is come up with a more well-defined rationale
    Avy Runner: I see
    Avy Runner: you just didn't choose any doodle :)
    Avy Runner: it certainly gives a certain feeling, raising questions at the same time
    Avy Runner: since he seems to be 'out of line' here
    Avy Runner: so you start wondering about who this man is
    Avy Runner: how his life looks like
    Calvino Rabeni: Yes, he seems like a visitor out of time and out of space
    Avy Runner: yes
    Calvino Rabeni: looking out a window into this virtual world
    Avy Runner: right :)

    Calvino Rabeni: So this is the feeling of "being seen" (as I interpret it) suggested in that early chapter of the TIme class
    Avy Runner: ah...
    Avy Runner: and that image reflects on you Cal ?
    Calvino Rabeni: It spoke to me
    Avy Runner: right
    Calvino Rabeni: Oh, I mean, he spoke to me
    Avy Runner: :)
    Avy Runner: it would be interesting to see where it resonates with you
    Calvino Rabeni: saying - I see you with the eyes of prehistory - take my picture and put it on the internet :)
    Avy Runner: :)
    Avy Runner: and is now looking into our world
    Avy Runner: with a silent observation
    Calvino Rabeni: I think it's been more than 7 generations
    Avy Runner: wow
    Avy Runner: I wonder how he would feel about our world
    Calvino Rabeni: I like to think this was a farsighted shaman
    Calvino Rabeni: He might feel we were shortsighted
    Avy Runner: yes, the way he looks, seem to identify him as a shaman, whether it is true or not
    Avy Runner: I am reading your profile observerm
    Avy Runner: I guess a lot of us started that way :)
    Avy Runner: I think observerm is not observing at the moment :)

    Calvino Rabeni looks at the clock
    Calvino Rabeni: It is auspicious to depart, says the oracle
    Calvino Rabeni: Goodbye then, and have a good day, Avy
    Avy Runner: bye all
    Calvino Rabeni: And observerm, take care
    Avy Runner: sleep well Cal :)
    Avy Runner is taking another zip from my coffee :)
    Calvino Rabeni: "Zip" I like that - you will become zippy
    Avy Runner: isn't that English?
    Avy Runner: :)
    Calvino Rabeni: Yes, its a pun if you meant "sip"
    Avy Runner: ah...... :)
    Avy Runner: sip then :)
    Avy Runner: thanks
    Calvino Rabeni: to zip is to move quickly, which could be an effect of drinking coffee
    Calvino Rabeni: its quite fitting
    Avy Runner: :D
    Avy Runner: then I keep on 'zipping' :)
    Avy Runner: bye Cal
    Calvino Rabeni: Bye :)
