    The Guardian for this meeting was Yakuzza Lethecus. The comments are by Yakuzza Lethecus.

    Archmage Atlantis: It is scary to let oneself be seen
    Wol Euler: yep
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi guys, what a surprise to see you all here!
    Eliza Madrigal: :D
    Archmage Atlantis: Still, it is more towards the concept of truth than to hide
    Wol Euler: hello Korel, have you been here before?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: but the letting ourselves being seing practice wasn´t that about being seing urselves through the eyes of a different object ?
    Korel Laloix: Yes.... sorry... the new Freud Jungsten....
    Eliza Madrigal: :))
    Wol Euler: ah! fine :)
    Wol Euler: ty
    Bleu Oleander: hi Korel
    Korel Laloix: Heya
    Eliza Madrigal: I'll have to go and actually pick my daughter up in a few minutes :)
    Wol Euler: what, again? :)
    Bleu Oleander: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: hahah, yes
    Archmage Atlantis: From Anime class, I heard
    Wol Euler: :)
    Bleu Oleander: text always feels clunky after voice
    Eliza Madrigal: :) yes... feels so odd.. like being submerged in a submarine
    Wol Euler: sending up little airbubbles of words
    Wol Euler: hello brue
    Wol Euler: *bruce
    Yakuzza Lethecus: wb bruce
    Bleu Oleander: wb Bruce
    Eliza Madrigal: :) Like that description
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Bruce :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Blub understands
    Bruce Mowbray: Hello, everyone.
    Bruce Mowbray: ;-) more than you realize, Eliza.
    Bruce Mowbray: perhaps.
    Archmage Atlantis: Bruce, perhaps you and I can practice voice in sl.........maybe I can get the tech to work here
    Wol Euler: do you have skype installed, arch?
    Bruce Mowbray: I surely do wish I could, Arch. . .
    Archmage Atlantis: No, Wol, I don't think I do
    Bruce Mowbray: My connection is too slow for both voice and SKYPE, unfortunately.
    Wol Euler: good, I've heard of that conflicting witht SL voice
    Archmage Atlantis: then I should check for that
    Archmage Atlantis: Everyone is silent
    Eliza Madrigal: the silence seems heavier after voice
    Bruce Mowbray notices how DAZLING Wol is today.
    Wol Euler beams silently.
    Bleu Oleander: creates some distance doesn't it?
    Bruce Mowbray: DAZZLING, sry.
    Archmage Atlantis: Reminds me of when I approach an other than human, and the need to establish safety
    Bruce Mowbray feels his peacock denes kicking in.
    Bruce Mowbray: genes*
    Archmage Atlantis: jeans
    Eliza Madrigal: okay... time for me to be off...
    Bleu Oleander: take care Eliza
    Wol Euler: bye eliza, take care, enjoy the evening
    Eliza Madrigal: thanks everyone :)) you guys too
    Archmage Atlantis: Bye for the moment, brave Eliza
    Bruce Mowbray ponders "safety" with other and - with sadness - feels he's sometimes made that a priority. . .
    Wol Euler nods.
    Bruce Mowbray: others*
    Wol Euler: I can relate to that.
    Bruce Mowbray: but it is not physical safety - never that.
    Bruce Mowbray: Only emotional safety, for me.
    Korel Laloix: Ther are physical safety aspects to SL as well.
    Wol Euler: how so?
    Bruce Mowbray: thus, Yo Estoy un hermito. . .
    Korel Laloix: You have to be careful what you tel people.
    Wol Euler: ah, yes, ok.
    Bruce Mowbray ponders being careful what he tells people -- and thinks he's not that smart.
    Korel Laloix: Certain sorts of perves can figure things out a lot more easily than you think.
    Korel Laloix: <-- knows this first hand.
    Wol Euler: :(
    Korel Laloix: <--- smarter and wiser now though
    Yakuzza Lethecus: can you elaborate opon it a bit further korel, what happend ?
    Bruce Mowbray fears neither man nor beast - physically. . . [upon further consideration, feels he sometimes fears the female. . . but no way proud of that.)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: or is that too unpleasant to recall
    Korel Laloix: LOng or short stroy?
    Wol Euler: whatever you are comvortable with
    Archmage Atlantis: A perve is an individual who does not respect you, is that correct?
    Bruce Mowbray: Whatever you wish. . . go for it, Korel.
    Korel Laloix: Pervert I should have said.
    Korel Laloix: More to it than this of course... but back when I thought I shuld like guys...
    Korel Laloix: I met a guy on campus through SL... seemed nice at first.
    Korel Laloix: Then got demanind.. so I said goodbye
    Korel Laloix: Next thign I know he breaks into my house.
    Bleu Oleander: (sorry, have to slip out ... bye all)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: bye bleu *whispers*
    Bruce Mowbray: bye, Bleu.
    Archmage Atlantis: Bye
    Archmage Atlantis: bleu
    Korel Laloix: ciao
    Korel Laloix: brb
    Archmage Atlantis: Pls continue Korel
    Korel Laloix: work
    Korel Laloix: Will have to finish later
    Korel Laloix: SOrry
    Archmage Atlantis: np
    Bruce Mowbray: It's OK. . .
    Bruce Mowbray: We did not mean to push you.
    Archmage Atlantis: life is long, and short.......both
    Bruce Mowbray now is feeling, "oh dear...."
    Wol Euler: she said it was because of work, and I know that she often logs on from college
    Wol Euler: so I wouldn't presume that we upset her
    Bruce Mowbray: ok -- yes, Bruce need to respect that.
    Bruce Mowbray: needs*
    Wol Euler: bruce needs to be kind to himself today, he's sounding a bit sad and almost judgemental
    Archmage Atlantis: I would accept Korel at his/her word
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i was thinking on the definition of pervert, for me a pervert is discespectful but disrespect isn´t pervertism in my mind, a pervert is stranger it´s a harsher form up to intimacy like ppl whom expose themselves publicly
    Bruce Mowbray is having a rough day - week. . .
    Wol Euler: I'm sorry to hear it.
    Bruce Mowbray says it's OK -- just a transitional period. . . like so many that preceded this one.
    Wol Euler is reassured.
    Wol Euler suggests doing a session entirely in passive voice.
    Bruce Mowbray smiles -- It's really quite OK. . .
    Bruce Mowbray is learning some things about himself that he "should" have learned a few decades ago.
    Archmage Atlantis: A prevert to me, is a damaged individual......the problem is that e is spreading the damage
    Yakuzza Lethecus: bruce: is it affiliated with you taking in the homeless ?
    Bruce Mowbray also just watched a movie that sort of ripped him up emotionally.
    Bruce Mowbray: so
    Wol Euler: oh dear :(
    Bruce Mowbray is really all right (not faking, now).
    Wol Euler: good
    Wol Euler nods to Arch
    Archmage Atlantis: Would you share the name of the movie, Bruce?
    Bruce Mowbray: @ Yaky - yes, it is related to taking in the homeless man - in a way. . .
    Bruce Mowbray: That has opened up part of my heart that I did not really know I was capable of. . .
    Wol Euler smiles warmly
    Bruce Mowbray: and he's probably the BEST thing happening in my life right now.
    Bruce Mowbray: The movie: BLOOD IRISH
    Bruce Mowbray: Too much like my own family. . .
    Bruce Mowbray: grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
    Bruce Mowbray: but enough of that.
    Bruce Mowbray feels a bit embarrassed. . .
    Wol Euler shakes her head and takes your hand. It's fine.
    Archmage Atlantis: No reason to be embarrassed.....to me, that was honest
    Bruce Mowbray: Not BLOOD Irish but BLACK IRISH -- so sorry!
    Wol Euler: ah! that you can be embarrassed about :)
    Bruce Mowbray: I will find it on imdb.com
    Archmage Atlantis: Freudian slip *g*
    Yakuzza Lethecus: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0455915/
    Wol Euler: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0455915/
    Wol Euler: snap
    Yakuzza Lethecus: :)
    Bruce Mowbray thinks that was a Freudian slip -- but realizes that Freud left several minutes ago, so . . . . 9not0
    Bruce Mowbray: yeppers. . . .
    Wol Euler: that sounds pretty grim.
    Bruce Mowbray: that's the one.
    Archmage Atlantis: dueling links, how cool is that
    Bruce Mowbray chooses to go the high road. . .
    Wol Euler whistles the theme tune.
    Bruce Mowbray: ;-)
    Wol Euler: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uzae_SqbmDE
    Wol Euler: since it's a linky kind of day
    Yakuzza Lethecus: onigokko
    Archmage Atlantis: bad puns don't count
    Bruce Mowbray wonders why Arch is sitting out this dance. . . but respects his choice to do so, of course.
    Yakuzza Lethecus: stop
    Yakuzza Lethecus: onigokko
    Bruce Mowbray: THANKS -- I needed that!
    Bruce Mowbray: /me's typist is laughing out loud!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: stop
    Archmage Atlantis: lolli
    Bruce Mowbray: good -- that was GOOD.
    Bruce Mowbray: lollipop
    Bruce Mowbray: lolli
    Bruce Mowbray: I think it works better if you stand up -- AFTER the bell (!)
    Wol Euler: eat me
    Archmage Atlantis: Be a bitch, dude....ok
    Yakuzza Lethecus: ur dress is much better this way wol :)
    Wol Euler: yeah, it doesn'T really work sitting

    Aphrodite Macbain: Yayy thanks
    Wol Euler: thats what I said
    Aphrodite Macbain: snap!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: actually i sometimes think a lot if constant reflection on ,,being" actually prevents ,,just being"
    Aphrodite Macbain grins at Yaku
    Archmage Atlantis: Agree, Yaku
    Yakuzza Lethecus: the verbalizing sometimes feels like fixating it as a preparation for use under a microskope and prevents futher development
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hello chi
    Aphrodite Macbain: Hello Chi!
    Chi Aho: hello yaku. aphro, everyone
    Wol Euler: hello chi, happy friday
    Chi Aho: hello, Wol

    Aphrodite Macbain: where are you looking?
    Archmage Atlantis: Shalom, Blessings & Namaste
    Wol Euler: :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: take care arch
    Wol Euler: enjoy, arch, and happy hunting

    Wol Euler: or hte end of the journey
    Aphrodite Macbain: Oh. I woud hate for the journey to end.
    Wol Euler: yes, unfortunately phrased. sorry.
    Aphrodite Macbain: I am reading Karen Armstrong's book on Compassion. It's realy amaing
    Aphrodite Macbain: amazing. Has any one sen it?
    Wol Euler: huh, you're the second person today to mention her
    Wol Euler: eliza has read it/is reading it
    Aphrodite Macbain: 12 steps to compassion
    Wol Euler makes a note
    Aphrodite Macbain: She is so well informed on so many religions.
    Chi Aho: Does the author mention the development of empathic power as essential to compassion?
    Aphrodite Macbain: She puts bits and piecve of my knowlege into a coherent whole
    Wol Euler nods
    Aphrodite Macbain: Yes- she talks about empathy and comassion as part of the same continuum
    Aphrodite Macbain: compassion
    Aphrodite Macbain: She also observes that compassion is an important element in ALL religions
    Chi Aho: Is this the same author who wrote about the history of Christianity?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: yes
    Chi Aho: The History of God, was it called?
    Aphrodite Macbain: Yes- she has written about Islam, Buddhism and the Bible
    Aphrodite Macbain: The Case for God
    Aphrodite Macbain: opposit of Dworkin
    Wol Euler is still taking notes :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: not only is she s widely read, she writes beautifully
    Chi Aho: To me it would seem that how we behave is much more important that what we believe, especially when it comes to theological concepts.
    Aphrodite Macbain: Yes, but how we behave is often based on what we beleve
    Aphrodite Macbain: we act with intention
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i don´t know, actually especially with conservative america i sometimes feel that religion on comes to mind when it´s convenient
    Aphrodite Macbain: yes. there are many ways of approaching religion, but the main religions that have been around for centuries, place compassion (in their writings as fundmental)
    Aphrodite Macbain: I must go and do some very profane activities - like shopping
    Wol Euler: :)
    Chi Aho: but is this practiced? (despite all of their beliefs) with the Buddhists maybe
    Wol Euler: enjoy the evening, aph
    Yakuzza Lethecus: bye wol
    Wol Euler: actually I should go too, I have places and people to be
    Wol Euler: bye for now
    Chi Aho: bye to both
    Yakuzza Lethecus: the exegesis is often a problem since you can interpret so much into words
    Aphrodite Macbain: Thanks for the conversation everyone. (Good question Cihi)
    Chi Aho: later perhaps
    Yakuzza Lethecus: bye aph
    Aphrodite Macbain: Bye
    Aphrodite Macbain: Bye! friends
    Yakuzza Lethecus: do you have a special subject in mind ?
    Chi Aho: for when?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: like right now, otherwise i would also head off as well
    Yakuzza Lethecus: but you just came
    Chi Aho: No, it is all right if you go. I drop in from time to time.
    Yakuzza Lethecus: actually, i also like to hear other ppl´s conversation, other ppl are much more skilled in these subjects
    Chi Aho: one min. plz
    Chi Aho: sorry; I have an IM now; will come back, but if you have to go; it is ok
    Yakuzza Lethecus: nah i have a few min
    Chi Aho: She is just going on and on - a friend from Germany
    Yakuzza Lethecus: ah, actually i am also german
    Chi Aho: Sie sind von Deutschland :-)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: but i haven´t had any contemplative exposure before i came from this group
    Yakuzza Lethecus: Ja, ich bin aus Deutschland.
    Chi Aho: Do you mean you had done little in the way of meditation before coming here?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: Nothing!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i said that before in the voice session, it was quiet a contradiction
    Chi Aho: Meditation is kind of a way of - I call it "coming home to yourself"
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i mean until 1 1/2 years ago
    Yakuzza Lethecus: before i came to pab
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i am a guardian here now :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: but it´s good to hear what you think about it, sry pls go ahead
    Chi Aho: I've asked my friend if she wants to join us here
    Yakuzza Lethecus: sure
    Yakuzza Lethecus: are you interested in phenomenology ?
    Chi Aho: at one point I may have been - that would be - I've forgotten his name right now; phenomenology other than being a philosophical position also came to be a methodological approach in sociology
    Chi Aho: i think they do phenomenology at philosophy house in sl
    Chi Aho: they've got this guy's portrait up there
    Yakuzza Lethecus: at phil house i didn´t see a portrai of like husserl last time i went there
    Chi Aho: What is the other guy's name, other than Husserl?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: only the big hobbes toy, tree stumps tree´s and the river
    Yakuzza Lethecus: into sociology you mean like max weber ?
    Chi Aho: Can you refresh me on phenomenology very briefly
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i can´t i am not too skilled on the despciption of appearances of like boxes
    Chi Aho: I do not recall Weber being classified as a phenomenologist
    Yakuzza Lethecus: no he isn´t he´s sociologist
    Chi Aho: yes
    Yakuzza Lethecus: just because you brought up the transition to sociology that´s why i asked you
    Chi Aho: but phenomenology is a methodological approach used by some modern sociologists
    Chi Aho: can you briefly summarize phenomenology?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: google brings alfred shütz
    Yakuzza Lethecus: never hear d of him
    Chi Aho: Heidegger was the name i was trying to remember
    Chi Aho: it is his picture i see at phil. house
    Yakuzza Lethecus: ah
    Chi Aho: isn't he a phenomenologist?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: yes
    Chi Aho: now what is the message of phenomenology?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: but was he into sociology ?
    Chi Aho: no, not Heidegger; he was strictly a philosopher
    Yakuzza Lethecus: pardon, you are testing me on something that i can´t tell you too much about, that´s even why i am quiet when i am at phil places
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i like to hear about these things and try to let a framework grow slightly
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i even read a poem by heidgger before
    Yakuzza Lethecus: when ppl mention books like 4 phenomenologcal philosophers or something i try to read a bit but i usually don´t make too much out of it
    Chi Aho: No, not testing you; I think we may be talking past one another; you said i brought up the subject of phenomenology, but as i recall it was you. This is really not important.
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i am not very structured
    Chi Aho: Now I recall where I met you earlier.
    Yakuzza Lethecus: where ?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i thought i met you here
    Chi Aho: If you don't remember me, it is just as well.
    Yakuzza Lethecus: would you mind to remind me ? :)
    Chi Aho: Well, Yaku, it was at a sim I would just as soon forget.
    Yakuzza Lethecus: what you are telling me sounds a bit not understandable to me, would you pls elaborate ?
    Chi Aho: I met you earlier at a sim, a place, in sl that I would just as soon forget.
    Yakuzza Lethecus: with a different avatar ?
    Chi Aho: no
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i mean, if you used an different avatar there ?
    Chi Aho: No, I did not.
    Chi Aho: You say you are searching in sl in your profile. At what point are you in this search?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: not very far actually, i simply look for constant exposure with a lot of these subjects
    Chi Aho: Well, there must be some goal, such as personal development, say for your own emotional, moral and spiritual development
    Chi Aho: Is this the case with you?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: my alt has seen you on PI when i check the logs
    Yakuzza Lethecus: but i don´t even know you
    Chi Aho: and who might your alt be?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: satre placebo
    Yakuzza Lethecus: but that´s public
    Yakuzza Lethecus: for a long time
    Yakuzza Lethecus: may you tell me who your alt is ?
    Chi Aho: Sartre placebo, you mean?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: since according to my logs you have one
    Yakuzza Lethecus: yes
    Chi Aho: Why do you assume I have an alt?
    Chi Aho: I don't follow this at all
    Yakuzza Lethecus: because you wrote it in ,,rhi´s circle of philosophical frein"
    Chi Aho: How can your logs say this about me
    Yakuzza Lethecus: you said that
    Chi Aho: Now why do ppl get alts?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i do that for multitasking
    Yakuzza Lethecus: to stay connected to different places
    Yakuzza Lethecus: and there were only 25 groups allowed
    Chi Aho: So you are Sartre Placebo at phil. island and yakuzza here
    Yakuzza Lethecus: or on various other places, but ppl i know know aobut sartre usually
    Yakuzza Lethecus: who are you if i may ask as your alt ?
    Chi Aho: Yaku, why do people turn in their avi's and get an alt? It must have something to do with identity; if I choose to disclose something personal, then i will disclose it, but otherwise this prying is unnecessary
    Yakuzza Lethecus: as i mentioned i have an alt and that alt was open
    Yakuzza Lethecus: to almost all ppl i know and he´s publicly mentioned even in the pab chatlogs
    Chi Aho: ok; i'd prefer not discussing alts
    Yakuzza Lethecus: would you mind telling me ur alt ?
    Chi Aho: Yaku, that is what is known as "a loaded question"
    Chi Aho: Do you know the definition of a loaded question?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: it´s not a trick, i simply have the feeling that you don´t have positive intentions towards me and would like to know who´s accusing me of something
    Chi Aho: You feel that I would like to know who is accusing you of someting? Is that correct?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: do you have to tell me something ?
    Chi Aho: no
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i recognize that you changed ur profile
    Yakuzza Lethecus: you don´t write ,,i am not chinese" anymore
    Yakuzza Lethecus: wb korel
    Chi Aho: hello, Korel
    Korel Laloix: Heya
    Korel Laloix: Way laggy today for me.
    Yakuzza Lethecus: yes it is
    Chi Aho: I must be going now.
    Korel Laloix: Tschusse
    Yakuzza Lethecus: bye chi
    Korel Laloix: Ciao
    Chi Aho: Goodbye and peace to all.
    Korel Laloix: What did I miss?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: well i also got to go to bed
    Korel Laloix: OK... take care then.
