    Slow session joined only by Sartre and Xirana.

    Riddle Sideways: good Morning, Listener Master
    Sartre Placebo: hey riddle
    Sartre Placebo: i rezz kinda strange for myself
    Riddle Sideways: Hi,
    Riddle Sideways: was gone to find uggs to keep feet warm
    Riddle Sideways: Yeah, you are not completely rez'ed to me
    Riddle Sideways: but, now you are seen
    Sartre Placebo: sry, had some trouble
    Riddle Sideways: funny, the roving camera saw you complete

    [Discourse alert]
    Ok, so today I was really going to cut the chit-chat by having a topic.
    The topic was something I heard on NPR Sunday.  One of my heroes John McLaughlin was interviewed about his new Coltrain-ish release.  Listen to it at http://www.npr.org/2011/01/02/132487...ality-in-music
    There are 2 points that are relivant to PaB. 
    In preparing for today's session, I replay the interview.  The Spiritality topic that I thought I heard in my sleepy pre-dawn stupor was not there.  The Miles Davis quote of "Play as if you Played Before" was there, but not as powerful as my memory served up.
    Oh Darn!!!! might as well talk about my pure-energy Av outfit.

    Sartre Placebo: i like ur avatar
    Riddle Sideways: thanks
    Sartre Placebo: may i ask what kind of being you try to represent ?
    Riddle Sideways: well, I do not know
    Riddle Sideways: started out to make a rez cloud
    Riddle Sideways: wanted an av that was like the rez cloud we see before formed
    Riddle Sideways: but like so many things we "want"
    Riddle Sideways: could not have or build
    Riddle Sideways: along the way several of these things stuck
    Riddle Sideways: does it make me look too fat?
         this joke is lost on Sartre
    Sartre Placebo: ur a pretty being, i wouldn´t even associate fatness or boldness with ur avatar
    Sartre Placebo: so it´s just a creative expression of of creativeness :)
    Riddle Sideways: sci fi (probably star trek) has several creatures like this
    Riddle Sideways: pure energy
    Riddle Sideways: flashing lights
    Sartre Placebo: an ascended being
    Riddle Sideways: supposedly advanced intelligence
    Riddle Sideways: fun to play as advanced intelligence :)
    Riddle Sideways: hmmmm, AI
    Riddle Sideways: well, I do dabble in play as AI

         Please forgive, I paraphrase the following very badly.
    Riddle Sideways: In early writtings about PaB or WoK there is something
    Riddle Sideways: about placing us as if at the end/head of the generations
    Riddle Sideways: as if sci has advanced and no need to review history
    Riddle Sideways: just live forward with that sci knowledge
    Riddle Sideways: then step a little further

    Riddle Sideways: in your current knowledge base
    Riddle Sideways: there are un-provens
    Riddle Sideways: hypothesis
    Riddle Sideways: well, shall we try living in the future.  when those are proven
    Riddle Sideways: sit upon a point when they are fact or false
         Riddle Sideways: Hi Xirana
         Sartre Placebo: hey xirana
         Xirana Oximoxi: hello Riddle: and Sartre
         Xirana Oximoxi: :)
    Riddle Sideways: would relate today's topic if knew it :)
    Riddle Sideways: ah yes, how to chat with a superior being
    Xirana Oximoxi: you mean there's no topic today?
    Xirana Oximoxi: for exemple ... how to chat with one God?
    Riddle Sideways: that would be a good start
    Riddle Sideways: difficult to think of any being superior to you
    Xirana Oximoxi: yes... but I have no idea, I don't believe in Gods... except maybe the nature itself:)
    Riddle Sideways: song: what if g-d were one of us, just a slop like one of us.  Just a stranger on the bus trying to make his way home...
    Xirana Oximoxi: and Nature is really strong and superior being... will stay here when we desapear.. (I think)
    Riddle Sideways: probably why this group uses the word "Being"
    Riddle Sideways: each can assign the appropriate meaning to the word "Being"
    Xirana Oximoxi: yes, that's true... being can be undesrstood differently for each one
    Riddle Sideways: Nature=Being is very good
    Riddle Sideways: nature is all around
    Riddle Sideways: within and without
    Riddle Sideways: goes on without us
    Riddle Sideways: big force
    Riddle Sideways: so sitting down with Mother Nature and chatting over a cup of nice tea
    Xirana Oximoxi: :))
    Xirana Oximoxi: nice !
    Riddle Sideways: would probably stumble into asking questions
    Riddle Sideways: not a shared friendly equals chat
    Xirana Oximoxi: well.... MOther Nature has her days... and sometimes she is friendly:)
    Xirana Oximoxi: and like to chat:)
    Riddle Sideways: many days has lots to say
    Xirana Oximoxi: but anyway... she always will give strong feelings to us
    Xirana Oximoxi: wonderful or not... but if we look around.. she is always saying something:)
    Xirana Oximoxi: and we are also Nature :))...
    Riddle Sideways: yes
    Riddle Sideways: there is a place (end of driveway) that we go almost same time every day (pick up newspaper) and look out and listen to Nature.
    Riddle Sideways: do you have a simular place(s)
    Riddle Sideways: to say good morning to nature
    Riddle Sideways: count turkeys, deer, dogs

    Xirana Oximoxi: I live in the countryside... and everyday I do the same walk in the morning with my dogs... and everyday the light and colours are different:)
    Riddle Sideways: yes, same but always different
    Xirana Oximoxi: and even if it rains or snows... the dogs don't let me stay at home:))
    Riddle Sideways: good.... Cats are not like that
    Xirana Oximoxi: lol... no.... they don't like to go into water
    Riddle Sideways: but your friend takes you out to chat with nature 365 days
    Riddle Sideways: you seeing the year revolve
    Xirana Oximoxi: yes... I think it's a good thing...
    Riddle Sideways: 'seeing you' bring dogs into their nature
    Xirana Oximoxi: do you like dogs?
    Riddle Sideways: yes like dogs, just do not have any
    Xirana Oximoxi: ah ok:)
    Riddle Sideways: we dog sit occasionally
    Riddle Sideways: saw a great SPCA advert on TV
    Riddle Sideways: shows quick slides of all the different types, kinds, shapes, ages, etc. etc. of humanoids
    Riddle Sideways: says: no matter who you are...  you are loved
    Xirana Oximoxi: SPCA = Society for the Promotion of the Communist Agenda ??
    Riddle Sideways: and shows a dogs big Irish Setter eyes
    Riddle Sideways: :O
    Xirana Oximoxi: I've looked it up at a Dictionnary:))
    Riddle Sideways: Prevention of Crueality to Animals was the one I was thinking of
    Xirana Oximoxi: lol... sorry!!! :)))
    Xirana Oximoxi: it's a nice advert:)
    Xirana Oximoxi: Sartre... have you been sometimes at Goethe Institut?
    Xirana Oximoxi: Sartre has been there... but not sure if it's you :)

    Riddle Sideways: languages are neccessary, but hard
    Xirana Oximoxi: ah... nice... hebrew must be very difficult
    Riddle Sideways: well, know about 10 computer languages
    Xirana Oximoxi: yes, I agree... it's always difficult to learn a language.. but if you speak English... it's the first language of the world today
    Xirana Oximoxi: WOW... 10 computer languages... those are also very complicated... I've begin to learn, HTML, CSS...but given up
    Xirana Oximoxi: it's not for me.. for my Character:)
    Xirana Oximoxi: with Computer languages a simple point can make the difference:)
    Riddle Sideways: also in human languages
    Riddle Sideways: typos can throw everything
    Riddle Sideways: off
    Xirana Oximoxi: that's true... but maybe not soo much as with computers:)

    Xirana Oximoxi: lol... you are right... in human Languages everyword and also points are also very important!!
    Riddle Sideways: it was joke.... a call to distroy the world function probably should always have a "not" in it
