    Table of contents
    No headers

    There were 11  guardians present for this week's session: Alfred Kelberry : Aphrodite Macbain : Archmage Atlantis : Bruce Mowbray : Eliza Madrigal : Eos Amaterasu : Lucinda Lavender : Riddle Sideways : SophiaSharon Larnia : Yakuzza Lethecus : Zen Arado

    Eliza posted this session and will try to return for more elaborate comments. Scroll down past the green strip to see discussion of coming back to basics and directly exploring the 90 second pauses. As a group, maybe we discussed dropping some habits we have (built up over time?) to be/see/taste more clearly or directly, what we are, also Zen gave a link well worth watching ...

    Alfred Kelberry: i like the wooden floor pattern
    Zen Arado: we try to keep it nice :)
    Archmage Atlantis: It lies on an SL fault line, or maybe 2 or 3
    Eliza Madrigal: nice feeling here isn't it Alf? :) Storm did a great job... it sits on a boundary to accomodate more avatars
    Aphrodite Macbain: you can fall through the fault lines
    Alfred Kelberry: eos :)
    Zen Arado: the San pab fault
    Alfred Kelberry: looks like tin-tin :)
    Eliza Madrigal: heheh Zen
    Zen Arado: earthquake due any day
    Eos Amaterasu: looks like he's made of tin
    Alfred Kelberry: i really liked tin-tin adventures as a kid
    Aphrodite Macbain: we have a fresh, brand new year
    Eliza Madrigal: oz never did give nothing to the tin man... ah gee can't stop singing this morning...sountrack brain
    Zen Arado: to exploit
    Aphrodite Macbain: Zen!!

    Eos Amaterasu starts unwrapping the new year....
    Eliza Madrigal: So as for guardian topics....
    Eliza Madrigal: Bleu can't be here today but asked for me to remind everyone that Alts of Being is on going...
    Aphrodite Macbain: exploting in a good way I hope
    Eliza Madrigal: Does anyone have anything to report on their exploration so far?
    Zen Arado: oh - forgot to bring Jan
    Aphrodite Macbain: yes I still need to get my head around that
    Alfred Kelberry: alts of being?
    Eliza Madrigal: yes, trying on various alts and identities Alfred...
    Archmage Atlantis: Strawman, brain....Loin, courage.....Tin Man, heart
    Eliza Madrigal: seeing what we see
    Aphrodite Macbain: an new exhibition Boxy
    Zen Arado: should have taken notes
    Eliza Madrigal: Still time Zen!
    Zen Arado: note taking resolution
    Alfred Kelberry: eliza, it sounds like a woly's workshop :)
    Eliza Madrigal: The special session won't take place until toward the end of the month
    Eliza Madrigal: ties in nicely with Woly's workshop :))
    Aphrodite Macbain: we can be multiple beings- how do we show that?
    Eliza Madrigal : each in his/her own way as always :)
    Riddle Sideways: yes, how is photo going to be taken?
    Zen Arado: you only need one
    Zen Arado: if it is dualistic
    Eliza Madrigal: for me I'm trying to take notes...
    Aphrodite Macbain: agreed but I am trying to imagine how with my limited techno experience
    Alfred Kelberry: we show that everyday, aph. you're different when you talk to your kid or to your boss :)
    Eliza Madrigal nods... it is just making the masks explicit to some degree
    Archmage Atlantis: Linear algebra allows for multiple axis
    Aphrodite Macbain: yes- but how do we create an image of that
    Archmage Atlantis: With Love
    Aphrodite Macbain: there's the rub
    Eliza Madrigal: Bleu will be sending another email soon :)
    Alfred Kelberry: ah, you mean in sl?
    Zen Arado: needs creativity
    Aphrodite Macbain: oh booo, none of you are being much help :-)
    Zen Arado: have run out of that though
    Yakuzza Lethecus would be glad to have zen´s
    Eliza Madrigal: no need to make it complicated... can be very simple.... heheheh
    Zen Arado: we don't know either Aph
    Eliza Madrigal: Sorry Aph :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: :-) thanks Zen that helps a bit..
    Zen Arado: try writing in a journal form
    Zen Arado: about alts
    Riddle Sideways: hmmmmm notes=100,000 words. need to simplify that
    Aphrodite Macbain: and sharing the journal? now that's an interesting idea!

    Eliza Madrigal: http://wiki.playasbeing.org/Events/PaB_Art/2011.01.01_-_ART_OF_BEING_SELF

    Zen Arado: might start doing that myself - another resolution
    Aphrodite Macbain: it would be fun to make a movie
    Eliza Madrigal: a movie would be great!
    Aphrodite Macbain: maybe we could collaborate
    Aphrodite Macbain: all our multiple selves could collaborate in making a movie
    Alfred Kelberry: eliza, thank you, sweet thing :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: or a play
    Archmage Atlantis: 100,000 notes = 100,000 observations........100,000 observations = 1 to 5 patterns
    Riddle Sideways: well, it sure has made the PaB sessions more populated
    Eliza Madrigal: yes the art projects seem the most fun when we find ways to work on them together
    Eliza Madrigal: :) RIddle
    Zen Arado: explore gender differences
    Aphrodite Macbain: yes, and age
    Zen Arado: in trans gender alts
    Aphrodite Macbain: and dance styles
    Aphrodite Macbain: hehe

    Alfred Kelberry: how many pabers have alts?
    Aphrodite Macbain: most I think
    Zen Arado: lots have
    Eliza Madrigal: hm... most yes
    Aphrodite Macbain: I have 4
    Alfred Kelberry: never seen eliza's alt :)
    Eliza Madrigal: some only have an alt for coming into SL privately...
    Archmage Atlantis: Anyone who has been in sl more than 3 months has at least one alt
    Alfred Kelberry: aph!!! :)
    Archmage Atlantis: IMO
    Zen Arado: mine nearly got kicked out of here the other week
    Aphrodite Macbain: :-) boxy
    Alfred Kelberry: maintence nightmare :)
    Eliza Madrigal: I've had several over the few years I've been here Alf but I tend to knock them off
    Eliza Madrigal: heheh
    Yakuzza Lethecus: who around here doesn´t have an alt ? :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: no, I keep them for special days- like when I turn into a white cloud
    Eliza Madrigal: or get stuck in SL!
    Alfred Kelberry: riddle has a lovely elephant
    Aphrodite Macbain: exactly
    Archmage Atlantis: Well, at the moment, Bartram and I are blended
    Yakuzza Lethecus: but the elephant is still riddle
    Aphrodite Macbain: oh yes, and I have snoopy too
    Alfred Kelberry: aph, oh yes... that cloud episode...
    Yakuzza Lethecus: he just wears a different outfit
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Luci :)
    Alfred Kelberry: luci!
    Aphrodite Macbain: Hi Luci- Happy N Year
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey luci
    Zen Arado: Hi Luci
    Riddle Sideways: Hi Luci
    Eliza Madrigal: There is a difference between playing with the appearance of one's regular 'name' here in SL and making a new name...
    Zen Arado: wonder if I could explore Jan's dreams?

    Eliza Madrigal: and now also SL has complicated things with their new naming ideas
    Alfred Kelberry: yaku, yes i know... i just like it :)
    Lucinda Lavender: Hello everyone:)
    Riddle Sideways: thanks, I like elephant and Bee
    Aphrodite Macbain: bee? be?
    Eliza Madrigal: and seeing those differences is part of what one could write about
    Aphrodite Macbain: yes- for me it's easier to write- more low tech
    Eliza Madrigal: like... there was something really fun about getting to know pab while talking to two lions mostly...
    Zen Arado: why not have a dialogue with an alt?
    Eliza Madrigal: Great idea ZEN!
    Zen Arado: with others present
    Aphrodite Macbain: nice
    Zen Arado: I have done that
    Riddle Sideways: one of my alts is now getting spam email
    Zen Arado: :)
    Eos Amaterasu: alt.spam
    Aphrodite Macbain: how can I have 2 alts on the same screen?
    Archmage Atlantis: 2 computers Aph
    Zen Arado: you have to switch
    Aphrodite Macbain: I don't have enough something
    Eliza Madrigal: hehehe
    Zen Arado: I have 2 screens though
    Archmage Atlantis: 2 different connections
    Yakuzza Lethecus: and you can log on from 1 computer multiple times
    Aphrodite Macbain: I have one connection only
    Eos Amaterasu: 2 different SL clients on same machine?
    Archmage Atlantis: one through each computer
    Zen Arado: just 2 screens is enough
    Yakuzza Lethecus thinks of all adamses he once met :)
    Zen Arado: you can have 2 instances of Phoenix running together
    Riddle Sideways: phoenix viewer allows multi windows
    Yakuzza Lethecus: even more
    Riddle Sideways: but phoenix has been crashing too
    Aphrodite Macbain thinks writing muight be easier - or collaborating would be best
    Yakuzza Lethecus: as long as the memory isn´t running over
    Zen Arado: the Adam's family
    Eliza Madrigal: I find that when I do that, one or the other of the alts doesn't appear properly though...
    Eliza Madrigal: one may be in that odd scarecrow shape
    Zen Arado: yes you need fast processor too
    Aphrodite Macbain: my memory is a puddle at the bottom of my cup
    Eos Amaterasu: alt improprieties
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i always have an issue with sartre
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Alfred Kelberry: this new sl feature where you can change your name basically allows multiple alts in one av
    Yakuzza Lethecus: he doesn´t rezz properly
    Yakuzza Lethecus: then he was ruthed lately
    Eliza Madrigal: sartre has issues Ya?
    Eos Amaterasu: nothing to worry about, Yak
    Zen Arado: existentional issue Yaku?
    Eliza Madrigal giggles
    Archmage Atlantis: Thinks accepting that others have a different rl and sl and tl and fl and.....xl, that is freedom
    Aphrodite Macbain: oh? how does that work boxy?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hehe, maybe i need a simon de bovoire placebo
    Eliza Madrigal: yes I do wonder how exactly that works Alf! I don't see the various names others do
    Alfred Kelberry: aph, you can change your name to anything once a week
    Riddle Sideways: but, the new sl naming feature still shows your original name
    Zen Arado: but they fought all the time Yaku
    Aphrodite Macbain: occasionally I just see ?????
    Zen Arado: their 'open' realtionship didn't work
    Alfred Kelberry: aph, yes, i guess it's a bug
    Zen Arado: need a Simone de Beauvoir alt
    Aphrodite Macbain: Oh so I'll just ignore it
    Aphrodite Macbain: or swat it
    Riddle Sideways: :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: Simone was an odd duck

    Eliza Madrigal: Are there other guardian topics someone would like to bring up?

    Alfred Kelberry: riddle, yes, they had to make logins somehow for older residents
    Yakuzza Lethecus: more pabish focus in regular sessions
    Archmage Atlantis: The tech of sl, phoenix, or the town we live in.....none of those limit us unless we choose the safety of that
    Riddle Sideways: congrats on a 6 hour session
    Riddle Sideways: has been a long time since a 6 hour session
    Eliza Madrigal: crazy.... thanks Riddle... see what you missed Ya!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: preservation of pabish idea´s without loosing fun elements
    Eliza Madrigal: Thanks Yakuzza, I think that's a great topic for the New Year
    Archmage Atlantis: Actually,, on the other topics isssue
    Riddle Sideways: yes, read the logs and saw I missed it
    Zen Arado: I was exhausted yesterday
    Aphrodite Macbain: why?
    Riddle Sideways: hours and hours of dancing
    Aphrodite Macbain: too much champagne?
    Eliza Madrigal: :) why, which, Aph?
    Eliza Madrigal: Oh
    Yakuzza Lethecus: maybe i should leave my sessions more often when they turn out that good without me :P
    Zen Arado: @ @ eyes
    Aphrodite Macbain: nice eyes Zen
    Archmage Atlantis: From years in corporate life, having a backup plan in place is a survival mechanism
    Zen Arado: tired eyes
    Eliza Madrigal: haha Ya... I left early on and came back hours later looking for the log...
    Aphrodite Macbain: was it there?
    Zen Arado: we're giving up survival

    Archmage Atlantis: If Fael had not been ready, it could have been a disaster

    Zen Arado: just live for the moment
    Aphrodite Macbain: I want to do more than survive
    Archmage Atlantis: Me too Aph
    Riddle Sideways: then dance more :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: :-)
    Aphrodite Macbain: careful. I just might...
    Eliza Madrigal: Yes, really want to cheer Fael and Cal and others for all their work rescuing wikis....
    Eliza Madrigal: very impressive
    Zen Arado: yes
    Aphrodite Macbain: yes!! bravo!
    Eliza Madrigal: down to the wire....
    Riddle Sideways: the bar I played did not close until 2
    Eliza Madrigal: Thank you Alf :))
    Aphrodite Macbain: I was most impressed by the knowledge and the work that went into that
    Archmage Atlantis: And if Alfred hadn't given the alarm, it would not have mattered
    Eliza Madrigal: You played for NY Riddle...? Nice!
    Aphrodite Macbain thinks "brilliant bunch of avis"
    Eliza Madrigal: :))
    Riddle Sideways: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Sharon
    Zen Arado: Hi Sharon :)
    Riddle Sideways: Hi SS
    Aphrodite Macbain: Hello SharonSophia
    Eos Amaterasu: Hi SS
    Aphrodite Macbain: or SophiaSharon
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey ssl
    Eliza Madrigal: PaB gives my son some hope.... sees that smart people and playful people are not mutually exclusive :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: :-) the smarter, the more playful I think
    Riddle Sideways: ;)
    Eliza Madrigal: :) seems so
    Lucinda Lavender: Hi Sophia Sharon
    SophiaSharon Larnia: hi everyone, soory log in problems all morning :)
    Zen Arado: thought he might send for people to take his mother away :)
    Eliza Madrigal: hahaha
    Aphrodite Macbain: Perhaps we have to invent some avi games
    SophiaSharon Larnia: and sitting problems now too hehe
    Eliza Madrigal: well not yet anyway
    Aphrodite Macbain: let the games begin
    Aphrodite Macbain: avi olympics
    Aphrodite Macbain is just mumbling to herself

    Eliza Madrigal: Yakuzza, back to your topic... Do you have suggestions for what you would like to see for sessions?
    Zen Arado: dancing olympics
    Aphrodite Macbain: yes!!
    Aphrodite Macbain: who can dance higher
    Zen Arado: or longer
    Aphrodite Macbain: faster, slower
    Eos Amaterasu: [08:24 AM] Yakuzza Lethecus:

    preservation of pabish idea´s without loosing fun elements

    Zen Arado: or worse than anyone else
    Riddle Sideways: limbo contests
    Aphrodite Macbain: hahah
    Eos Amaterasu: more play => more being?
    Eliza Madrigal: How can we be both natural and also make sure we keep our *direct exploration* emphasis alive?
    Aphrodite Macbain: all of the above
    SophiaSharon Larnia: I've been thinking of this same thing for months, too
    Aphrodite Macbain: Note: discussion of the idea of play olympics bears fruit
    Eos Amaterasu: play with experience, more so than with ideas?
    Zen Arado: was reading a book where author talks about dialogue sessions
    Lucinda Lavender: :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: ideas come out of experience?
    Aphrodite Macbain: yes?
    Zen Arado: just allowing whatever to come up
    Eliza Madrigal: yes.... less omphaloskepsis (typist says to Eliza)
    Riddle Sideways listens t o zen
    Zen Arado: no leaders
    Aphrodite Macbain: in a P@B session?
    Aphrodite Macbain: or in a retreat?
    Zen Arado: but we kinda do this anyway
    Aphrodite Macbain: yes I was thinking that
    Zen Arado: was like last retreat yes
    Aphrodite Macbain: but not always, which was your point I think
    Zen Arado: I think anyway
    Aphrodite Macbain: therefore I am
    Eliza Madrigal: maybe we can try the one-at-a-time retreat style sharing more in sessions...
    Zen Arado: getting away from preparing and authoritative structures
    Eos Amaterasu: authenticity, in experience and in ideas and in wording
    Eliza Madrigal: while still making room for new comers, etc

    Zen Arado: yes authenticity...

    Aphrodite Macbain: I find the P@B sessions are not authorative except for the structure of 90 second breaks

    Zen Arado: direct experience

    Zen Arado: agree Aph
    SophiaSharon Larnia: honoring the 90 seconds breaks would be a start
    Eliza Madrigal: yes this is sort of what I've been feeling too Aph... except that hmmm....
    SophiaSharon Larnia: although, I'm just as 'bad at that as anyone' hehe
    Eliza Madrigal: there is also something wonderful about letting things arise as they do
    Riddle Sideways: this av too
    Zen Arado: ha Bruce is in the quicksand too
    Eliza Madrigal: I think we pay more attention to the 90 seconds when we have particular explorations

    SophiaSharon Larnia: who was it that said the thought thread was like music sometimes?

    Eos Amaterasu looks for a winch
    Aphrodite Macbain: It's almost likeyes- but the guardian needs to learn how to keep things from getting too off track
    Eliza Madrigal: Luci, Sharon :)
    Lucinda Lavender: it has been so tempting to keep the ball rolling...
    SophiaSharon Larnia: ah :D
    SophiaSharon Larnia: its true, sometimes )
    Eliza Madrigal: yes
    Zen Arado: what is the track though?
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Bruce :)
    Eliza Madrigal: DING!
    Aphrodite Macbain: there isn't one
    Zen Arado: Hi Bruce :)
    Lucinda Lavender: hi bruce:0
    Eliza Madrigal: @ Zen
    SophiaSharon Larnia: hi Bruce
    Bruce Mowbray listens to catch the thread of this meeting. . . .
    Aphrodite Macbain: Hiya Bruce. How are you today?
    Bruce Mowbray: Hi everyone. (listening).
    Lucinda Lavender: ealy morning for my typing skills...
    Eliza Madrigal: we are discussing how to get back to direct pab exploration....
    Eos Amaterasu: [08:24 AM] Yakuzza Lethecus: preservation of pabish idea´s without loosing fun elements
    Aphrodite Macbain: we're talking about ways to keep the P@B sessions more focussed
    Eliza Madrigal: not too tight, not too loose
    Bruce Mowbray: ok. Thanks.
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Zen Arado: kinda think of that as an interval
    Zen Arado: the Ding
    Eos Amaterasu: Ding an Sich
    Eliza Madrigal smiles
    Alfred Kelberry: eliza, i heard that somewhere :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: we talk about this issue a lot so it is of concern
    Eliza Madrigal: :) yes I stole it Alf... I do that...
    Alfred Kelberry: :P
    SophiaSharon Larnia: hehe Eliza
    Eliza Madrigal: heheh
    Aphrodite Macbain: It's public property now
    Eos Amaterasu: musicians use it all the time
    Bruce Mowbray: The thing in itself....?

    Yakuzza Lethecus: most of the time when i recommend ppl to pab i tell em that they could take a look but if they want to really to see some more of the groupsense they should wait for theme sessions

    SophiaSharon Larnia: see ? :D
    Eos Amaterasu: y, Bruce
    Aphrodite Macbain: the theme sessions are very interesting but a lot of work for those presenting
    Eliza Madrigal: yes....
    Eliza Madrigal: Also, there are a lot of substantive and interesting sessions actually....

    Riddle Sideways: have been thinking of something between free flow and theme sessions.

    Eliza Madrigal: but for a first timer I might not suggest a 1pm usually...
    Riddle Sideways: e.g. heard a great topic on NPR today
    Aphrodite Macbain: why?
    Riddle Sideways: would make a great instant topic
    Aphrodite Macbain: eliza?
    Bruce Mowbray: The PaB pavilion sessions are sometimes like a subway station -- folks coming and going . . with all sorts of different things on their minds...
    Eliza Madrigal listens closely to Riddle...
    Bruce Mowbray: What was that, Aph?
    Riddle Sideways: but, how to intro into session
    Aphrodite Macbain: Riddle??
    Bruce Mowbray: Phh -- Riddle! sry.
    Riddle Sideways: ppl would have to listen then comment
    Eliza Madrigal: (1pms tend to be just a little more wild @ Aph) :) fun after you know people
    Riddle Sideways: have done the reading before class
    Aphrodite Macbain: what was the topic riddle?
    Eliza Madrigal: ah, yes....
    Zen Arado: going around a group sharing can be good
    Eliza Madrigal: yes
    Aphrodite Macbain: on one topic?
    Riddle Sideways: today topic does not matter. it happens
    Eliza Madrigal: well the topic can change naturally
    Riddle Sideways: often there is a great topic in guardian's head
    Zen Arado: because we are changing
    Riddle Sideways: to explore
    Bruce Mowbray remembers the counter-clockwise circle sharing of the recent PaB in-world retreat.
    Eliza Madrigal: one thing flowing into another... yes
    Lucinda Lavender: the spiral fow has that function of slowing the topic down I think...
    Aphrodite Macbain: I like that. It takes the responsibility away from the Guardian and places it on everyone in the circle
    Zen Arado: yes
    Lucinda Lavender: which then brings a certain higher sensitivity out
    Eliza Madrigal: yes... the guardian can then greet newcomers and let them know what is happening....
    Zen Arado: need to read guardian job spec again (me)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: yes Eliza
    Lucinda Lavender: me too read again...

    Eliza Madrigal: this morning I woke thinking of apapab.. how powerful it was when I first started working with this idea that made no real sense at the time... how it opened here and there...
    SophiaSharon Larnia: ding
    Aphrodite Macbain: apapab?
    Riddle Sideways: ty SS
    Zen Arado: the gap is good for slowing things down too
    Yakuzza Lethecus: appreciate the presence of appearances as presentation of being
    SophiaSharon Larnia: maybe a theme seesion on apapab
    Eliza Madrigal: appreciate the presence of appearance as a presentation of/by being
    Aphrodite Macbain: oh right thanks Yaku
    Zen Arado: introduces more reflectivity
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: yes would like that Sharon
    SophiaSharon Larnia looks around hehe
    Eliza Madrigal: there are some core themes... maybe 'back to basics' is a good light resolution :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: wouldn't hurt.
    Eos Amaterasu: Theme session by Eliza and SS on APAPAB?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: well, sometimes i have the feeling that the subjects are the same but the words are different
    Archmage Atlantis: First, we need some small seating
    Aphrodite Macbain: there's always something new to say about basic issues
    Eliza Madrigal: with some of what we've learned too... like the one-a-time sharing
    Eliza Madrigal: indeed Aph
    Eliza Madrigal: endless richness
    Aphrodite Macbain: and a new year to explore them
    SophiaSharon Larnia: :)
    Eliza Madrigal smiles
    Zen Arado: more NY resolutions :(
    Eliza Madrigal: hehehe
    Zen Arado: to break
    Eliza Madrigal: LIGHT ones Zen or call them something else...
    SophiaSharon Larnia: ah Zen! lol,I just made one, keep it simple :D
    Aphrodite Macbain thinks "only reasonable ones"
    Eliza Madrigal: group exploration
    Aphrodite Macbain: yes.
    Archmage Atlantis: My only new years resolution for years has been to make no resolutions
    SophiaSharon Larnia: :)
