    Agatha Macbeth: Doesn't get much deeper than that
    Eliza Madrigal: no...
    Eliza Madrigal: this is true
    Agatha Macbeth: Ok if you fancy a long swim
    Eliza Madrigal: hah
    Agatha Macbeth: And there are creatures that live down there, amazingly
    Eliza Madrigal: I have such a persistent cold so I came here for you all to wake me up
    Agatha Macbeth slaps Liz around the head
    Eliza Madrigal: giant squid perhaps
    Agatha Macbeth: Did it work?
    Eliza Madrigal: hm... let me check
    Eliza Madrigal: :::looks for head::::
    Agatha Macbeth: :D
    Eliza Madrigal: she still looks pretty drowsy
    Eliza Madrigal: hahaha, the horn helps :D
    Agatha Macbeth: Who's feeling horny?
    Subaru Arun: Mooo
    Eliza Madrigal: well you are back to good health I think with lines like that :D
    Agatha Macbeth: On the way...
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: So Subaru, what have you learned in your year in SL?
    Subaru Arun: Hm, good qustion
    Subaru Arun: Or question even
    Eliza Madrigal smiles at Bruce
    Subaru Arun thinks deeply
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Eliza Madrigal listens deeply
    Bruce Mowbray: Hey, Calvino.
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Cal :)
    Subaru Arun: I suppose I have learned a lot by just sitting around listening and observing people
    Subaru Arun: Hello Calvino
    Lugh Fehr: hey cal and zon
    Eliza Madrigal: change any of the ideas you had before you came to SL you think?
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Zon :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Zon too :)
    Subaru Arun: Oh I'm not sure I really had any :)
    Eliza Madrigal: :))
    Subaru Arun: I maybe have more now
    Lugh Fehr: horny bruce
    Eliza Madrigal: interesting! (@ Subaru)
    Subaru Arun: ?
    Subaru Arun: (@ Lugh)
    Lugh Fehr: look at him
    Agatha Macbeth: Horny Bruce?
    Bruce Mowbray can't find his long black pants and feels undignified - - as well as horny.
    Zon Kwan: he has horns
    Eliza Madrigal: Hey Zen :)
    Lugh Fehr: hey zen
    Eliza Madrigal: was talking with people this morning...about instinct and intution in SL... so I've been thinking about that a bit...
    Zon Kwan: zen hi
    Zen Arado: Hi all
    Agatha Macbeth: Sorry, they looked like balls to me ;-)
    Agatha Macbeth: Hi Zen :)
    Zon Kwan: what is the difference ?
    Subaru Arun: Hello Zen
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hi zen
    Bruce Mowbray: Hey, Zen and Zon.
    Eliza Madrigal thinks bruce is not the only one who hasn't stopped drinking champagne since New Years
    Yakuzza Lethecus: and zon
    Agatha Macbeth: Actually they're antlers, not horns
    Lugh Fehr: have you heard the experiment that prooves we see the future 3.5 sec befor it does
    Bruce Mowbray: When I wear my Scottish tartans and my tux and my horns, I an a transformed avi.
    Eliza Madrigal: ?
    Agatha Macbeth: Before it does what?
    Eliza Madrigal: we see the future before it sees us?
    Subaru Arun: Ooh, heavy
    Bruce Mowbray listens mightily to Lugh and this 3.5 sec thing.
    Yakuzza Lethecus: wb cal
    Zen Arado: or we start to act 8 seconds before we become aware of it
    Calvino Rabeni: thanks , hello now things work
    Lugh Fehr: let me find it on the web
    Zen Arado: wb Cal
    Eliza Madrigal: we give a lot of credit to our reasoning but our motives are hidden from even ourselves perhaps
    Agatha Macbeth: Well mine certainly are
    Eliza Madrigal: :) :::looks for motives:::::
    Agatha Macbeth: What was the motive Miss Marple?
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Colonel Mustard in the shed
    Bruce Mowbray can tell aggers is feeling better -- and is glad.
    Subaru Arun: With the knife
    Eliza Madrigal smiles
    Agatha Macbeth: :D
    Agatha Macbeth is glad you're glad
    Zon Kwan: how can that be proved ?
    Agatha Macbeth: By Professor Plum Zon...
    Eliza Madrigal watches for bruce to prove his gladness
    Lugh Fehr: arrghh cant find it
    Eliza Madrigal: its with the motives
    Agatha Macbeth: Wrongly filed as usual
    Eliza Madrigal grins
    Agatha Macbeth: 'I thought experiment began with an X'
    Bruce Mowbray: ?me will now prove his gladness to have aggers feeling better.
    Bruce Mowbray: lolli
    Zon Kwan: zen,,how do u do that what u do with ur hands
    Eliza Madrigal: hahahah
    Zen Arado: there were scientific studies done showed this but I can't remember the details
    Zen Arado: it's just this AO Zon
    Eliza Madrigal: :D
    Agatha Macbeth: LOLl-ly
    Zon Kwan: perhaps it just shows our brain lags 3,5 sec from now ?
    Agatha Macbeth: Nah, mine's worse than that!
    Lugh Fehr: 20 minitues after a loud sound would be played on the headphones randomly the body teanses 3.5 sec befor the sound is played
    Eliza Madrigal: or that more happens instantly than we realize
    Eliza Madrigal: Ah, interesting
    Zon Kwan: yes..i know all 24 hours nefore i do
    Zon Kwan: before
    Agatha Macbeth: 24 hours from Tulsa
    Eliza Madrigal: so what should this tell us in a practical sense?
    Eliza Madrigal: about what we 'are'?
    Zon Kwan: so body is faster than brain
    Eliza Madrigal: knowing is in the body?
    Lugh Fehr: time is an illustion
    Bruce Mowbray: all time is now.
    Bruce Mowbray: ?
    Zon Kwan: perhaps all this has alredy happened
    Zen Arado: it has implications for free will too
    Subaru Arun: Maybe it's feeling rather than knowing
    Bruce Mowbray: perhaps all this is happening now.
    Zon Kwan: i doubt
    Eliza Madrigal: yes maybe we downplay feelings/instinct
    Zen Arado: if our bodies decide what to do first
    Eliza Madrigal: well... not sure it is instinct... hm...
    Eliza Madrigal: instinct does seem physical though
    Zen Arado: and our brain thought it made the decision....
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Zen Arado: but only rationalized it...
    Zon Kwan: all has already happened..we just realize later why (matrix)
    Eliza Madrigal: isn't that a bit scary? implies we don't know what we're doing?
    Lugh Fehr: all emotions can be shown as chemicals mabey the phisical and the mind are one as well
    Zen Arado: I never did :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Maybe we don't ;-)
    Eliza Madrigal: or at least can't talk about it? what are we sharing? hahah
    Bruce Mowbray wonders if all chemicals can be shown as emotions. . .
    Eliza Madrigal: hmmm...
    Agatha Macbeth: Happy potassium
    Zon Kwan: if we know what we r doing..why would we do it
    Eliza Madrigal: :D
    Bruce Mowbray: lethargic lead.
    Eliza Madrigal: surely it can't be smarter to go with pure feeling?
    Lugh Fehr: mabey thas why chemicals have such a wierd effect on the concuisness and mood
    Bruce Mowbray imagines iron "steeling" itself against all intruders.
    Calvino Rabeni: Isn't it great, that Life has found away to put all those chemicals into play, to compute our emotions and thoughts for us?
    Subaru Arun: Depends on which chemicals you use ;-)
    Eliza Madrigal: :) Cal
    Eliza Madrigal: haha Subaru
    Zon Kwan: al i know is what i feel
    Eliza Madrigal: so what is life then :)
    Agatha Macbeth: 42
    Zon Kwan: life is life
    Lugh Fehr: life is life na na na naa na
    Yakuzza Lethecus: :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Ha
    Eliza Madrigal smiles
    Subaru Arun: Hee

    Zen Arado: Hi Korel
    Eliza Madrigal: what is alive about what we are doing?
    Eliza Madrigal: (she who asks the questions doesn't have to answer them, hahah)
    Zon Kwan: a question contains its answer
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Lugh Fehr: hey korel
    Zen Arado: nothing - it was 8 seconds ago and out brains are catching up...
    Eliza Madrigal laughs (on a time delay)
    Agatha Macbeth: That's called lag Zen ;P
    Lugh Fehr: life is living hehee
    Agatha Macbeth: Life is lagging

    Eliza Madrigal: quite an animation there Lugh
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh, I missed that one sorry
    Eliza Madrigal: that was in response to what zen is going to do next
    Agatha Macbeth: In 8seconds
    Zen Arado: just noticed fish in pond
    Eliza Madrigal: gratsi
    Zen Arado: think I am lagging more than 8 secs ....
    Bruce Mowbray: The future thanks Zen for lagging -- will now take less time to catch up with him.
    Zen Arado: but hope it will be fun when it arrives
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Bruce Mowbray: sooner than you think!
    Zen Arado: am I time travelling?
    Zen Arado: part of me is anyway
    Agatha Macbeth: The part in the blue box
    Bruce Mowbray: If you are traveling at all, then you are probably time traveling.
    Eliza Madrigal: it is odd when you really notice it.. the lag/delay... and if you try to just stop
    Eliza Madrigal: stopping is harder than traveling?
    Agatha Macbeth: Inertia
    Lugh Fehr: friction
    Bruce Mowbray doesn't know - has never stopped.
    Agatha Macbeth: You'll notice when you do Bruce
    Bruce Mowbray: Hmmmm. . . Well, I hope so.
    Zen Arado: don't stop me now
    Zon Kwan: isnt life just that..an adventure travelling in time
    Zen Arado: and we have no control of it...
    Eliza Madrigal: guess I was thinking of the thought loop... just once I felt like "Oh, not going" then started
    Zen Arado: have we?
    Zon Kwan: why should we have
    Eliza Madrigal: and to think this all started with asking Subaru what she'd learned in her year in SL...
    Zon Kwan: would it be an adventure then
    Subaru Arun: It did?
    Eliza Madrigal: how'd that happen? hahah
    Eliza Madrigal: maybe... maybe not....
    Subaru Arun: Must have been quite an adventure then :)
    Eliza Madrigal: :))
    Eliza Madrigal: guess so
    Eliza Madrigal: box of time
    Agatha Macbeth: Box of frogs
    Eliza Madrigal: ribbit

    Agatha Macbeth: Speaking of which, where's Alfred today?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: he was there this afternoon

    Calvino Rabeni: I've heard you say that before :)
    Freud Jungsten: It can be so true....
    Lugh Fehr: :)
    Calvino Rabeni: What's the secret of it?
    Freud Jungsten: Annoying questions really.
    Lugh Fehr: cant stop moving hands
    Freud Jungsten: Get people off guard.
    Calvino Rabeni: That might do it all right
    Freud Jungsten: I tned to ask silly questions, not on purpose though.
    Calvino Rabeni: Tried but not on purpose hmm.
    Calvino Rabeni: When I try that it never works
    Freud Jungsten: If I tried it would not work either...
    Calvino Rabeni: So I just hope sometimes I can do it by mistake
    Freud Jungsten: It is far more fun that way.
    Calvino Rabeni: Far more fun
    Calvino Rabeni: :)
    Freud Jungsten: I love seeing my proffesors try to answer politely....
    Freud Jungsten: At least the ones that will....
    Freud Jungsten: But the eyes rolling look can be amuzing as well.
    Freud Jungsten: OH well...
    Freud Jungsten: Was fun...
    Freud Jungsten: Take care...
    Calvino Rabeni: Thanks, some one has to do it
    Calvino Rabeni: I don't think we have much choice
