    [13:29] Wol Euler: I've always been shopping
    [13:29] Wol Euler: that's too easy
    [13:29] Wol Euler: I'm not sure what hte proper name of htis style is, fef.
    [13:29] Alfred Kelberry: well, true
    [13:29] Alfred Kelberry: fef, i think you're close
    [13:31] Alfred Kelberry: ok, it's from french carré
    [13:32] Fefonz Quan: yes, that;s what i thought
    [13:32] Alfred Kelberry: which is a bob in english :)
    [13:32] Wol Euler: aha!
    [13:32] Alfred Kelberry: cute
    [13:32] Wol Euler: :)
    [13:32] Fefonz Quan: not that i would know how to type this apostroph even if i knew it should be there
    [13:33] Alfred Kelberry: :)
    [13:33] Wol Euler: huh
    [13:33] Alfred Kelberry: é <- this one, woly
    [13:33] Alfred Kelberry: accent
    [13:33] Wol Euler: é
    [13:33] Wol Euler: è
    [13:33] Fefonz Quan: e
    [13:33] Wol Euler: on my keyboard, it's a two-stroke operation, first the accent (left of the delete key) then the vowel that goes with it
    [13:33] Wol Euler: á
    [13:34] Wol Euler: ò
    [13:34] Wol Euler: ú
    [13:34] Alfred Kelberry: Ñ‘ :)
    [13:34] Fefonz Quan: `e
    [13:34] Wol Euler: nearly :)
    [13:34] Wol Euler: dunno why that doesn't work for you
    [13:34] Wol Euler: hello eliza!
    [13:35] Alfred Kelberry: eliza! :)
    [13:35] Wol Euler smiles warmly
    [13:35] Fefonz Quan: maybe because there is no key to the left of my delete
    [13:35] Eliza Madrigal: Hi Wol :)) wow, such a new look and hair... nice
    [13:35] Wol Euler: well, you clearly do have the accent, but it doesn't get added to the vowel
    [13:35] Alfred Kelberry: just a different keyboard layout
    [13:35] Wol Euler: ty :)
    [13:35] Eliza Madrigal: Hi Fef, Boxy, Susan :)
    [13:35] iwandertoo Resident: waves
    [13:35] iwandertoo Resident: brb
    [13:35] Fefonz Quan: hey liza
    [13:36] Wol Euler: hello pema
    [13:36] Alfred Kelberry: pema-san :)
    [13:36] Fefonz Quan: Hello Pema
    [13:36] Eliza Madrigal: HI Pema
    [13:36] Fefonz Quan: nice BUddha-eyes Eliza
    [13:36] Eliza Madrigal: TY Fef :)
    [13:36] Pema Pera: hi everybody!
    [13:37] Alfred Kelberry: btw, i've found out recently that the word "buddhism" was invented in the eary 19 century and there's no "ism" in asian languages :)
    [13:37] Wol Euler is surprised, and skeptical
    [13:37] Fefonz Quan: so it should work for hinduism as well :)
    [13:38] Alfred Kelberry: also, some pali canon scholars claim that "meditation" itself is a concept (as westerners understand it) not found in buddhism
    [13:39] Alfred Kelberry: we see it as introspection then the early text proposes awareness of the totally of what's going on right now
    [13:39] Fefonz Quan: as far as i know, the group of practices we call 'meditation' has different words for different types in buddhism
    [13:39] iwandertoo Resident: back
    [13:40] Fefonz Quan: Vipassanna, Shamata, are just a few i guess
    [13:40] Alfred Kelberry: yes
    [13:41] Fefonz Quan: and that may also differ for different languages of differnt people in south east asia
    [13:42] Alfred Kelberry: i think it's a matter of terms, but they come to grow and carry the meaning which may be skewed
    [13:43] Pema Pera: it's hard to believe we are now in our fourth year . . .
    [13:43] iwandertoo Resident: what is the impact - ref to "skewed"?
    [13:43] Wol Euler smiles.
    [13:43] Eliza Madrigal: Hi Arch :)
    [13:43] Fefonz Quan: yes, even Time flies when you're having fun :)
    [13:43] Wol Euler: hello arch
    [13:43] Pema Pera: hi Arch!
    [13:43] iwandertoo Resident: waves
    [13:43] Fefonz Quan: Hi Arch!
    [13:44] Archmage Atlantis: It's difficult to believe I'm in my 3rd year
    [13:44] Pema Pera waiting for boxy's skewedness answer :-)

    [13:44] Pema Pera: meanwhile, I wonder how many of us are still playing with the 9-sec pauses . . .
    [13:44] Alfred Kelberry: susan, early western scholars of buddhism saw it through the background of christian teaching
    [13:44] Pema Pera: whether it has become second nature or forgotten :)
    [13:44] Fefonz Quan: I sometimes play with them at work. i have a popup reminder
    [13:44] Wol Euler is going to try again, after a very long time-out from them
    [13:44] Alfred Kelberry: all the differences that i mentioned are the result of it
    [13:45] iwandertoo Resident: is there not similar states in hebraic and christian txts from centuries ago?
    [13:45] Alfred Kelberry: presumably
    [13:45] Archmage Atlantis: And the shamen saw there was good.
    [13:45] Archmage Atlantis: Yes, Susan......and from the stories of humanity
    [13:47] Alfred Kelberry: 9 sec...
    [13:47] Alfred Kelberry: i forgot, i confess :)
    [13:47] Pema Pera: Susan, if I may ask, have you tried the 9-sec breaks?
    [13:47] Archmage Atlantis: And all shamen believe the good will prevail
    [13:47] iwandertoo Resident: my understanding is that when one is going through seminary or rabbinical school - there a similar state of being from the depth of what they are reaching to understand...that moment of "clicking" without effort
    [13:47] iwandertoo Resident: "things make sense without sense"
    [13:48] Pema Pera: that's very interesting, Susan!
    [13:48] Archmage Atlantis: That Susan, is the 9
    [13:48] Fefonz Quan: (Suan?)
    [13:48] Eliza Madrigal: Hi yellow Bleu :)
    [13:48] Fefonz Quan: s
    [13:48] Alfred Kelberry: bleu :)
    [13:48] Eliza Madrigal: Hi Sharon :)
    [13:48] Pema Pera: did you have that kind of experience?
    [13:48] Bleu Oleander: hi everyone
    [13:48] iwandertoo Resident: not my way...nor can i say i understand beyond an intellectual understanding
    [13:48] Pema Pera: hi Bleu and Sharon!
    [13:48] Wol Euler: hello bleu, sharon
    [13:48] iwandertoo Resident: waves
    [13:48] Alfred Kelberry: neko girl :)
    [13:48] SophiaSharon Larnia: hi everyone :))
    [13:48] Fefonz Quan: Hi Bleu
    [13:49] Fefonz Quan: Hy Sharon
    [13:49] Pema Pera: but perhaps some incling (@ Susan)
    [13:49] iwandertoo Resident: i dont think so, pema. it's the process of seeing others think...that i have an affinity for. (if this makes sense)
    [13:49] Archmage Atlantis: Dang Fefonz
    [13:50] Archmage Atlantis: I was hoping for an orphan session
    [13:50] Fefonz Quan: (Dang?)
    [13:50] Pema Pera: sure, it does!
    [13:50] Pema Pera: at the same time, the affinity itself may already be part of the experience
    [13:50] Fefonz Quan: it can be reorphaned by your wish Arch ;-)
    [13:50] Pema Pera: and lead to further familiarity
    [13:50] iwandertoo Resident: yes, true.
    [13:51] Archmage Atlantis: No
    [13:51] Pema Pera: did you try the 9 second breaks (and have you heard about them)?
    [13:51] Archmage Atlantis: A child claimed is a child loved
    [13:51] SophiaSharon Larnia: hi eggsalad

    [13:52] Eliza Madrigal: (Hi Eggsalad)
    [13:52] Pema Pera: the 9 seconds, Susan, have you heard of them?
    [13:53] Archmage Atlantis: The stars align, or if astrohysicts choose
    [13:53] iwandertoo Resident: i have. not quite there yet. just getting back into sitting.
    [13:53] Pema Pera: sure, whenever you feel like!
    [13:53] Pema Pera: it's not that hard though, just to try and so nothing (or less) for nine seconds :-)

    [14:04] Agatha Macbeth loves compliments
    [14:04] SophiaSharon Larnia: :)
    [14:04] Archmage Atlantis: Che was an idealist.....idealists tend to breed dictators
    [14:04] Archmage Atlantis: As did Marx
    [14:05] Alfred Kelberry: the box is for you, aga :)
    [14:05] SophiaSharon Larnia: heh
    [14:05] Agatha Macbeth looks
    [14:06] Alfred Kelberry: hey! tantalizing 2 times?! :)
    [14:06] SophiaSharon Larnia: :DD
    [14:06] Wol Euler: preciousssssssssssssssss
    [14:06] Agatha Macbeth: Well, it certainly is oniscient :p
    [14:06] Archmage Atlantis: Aggers is a person
    [14:06] Agatha Macbeth: +m
    [14:06] Archmage Atlantis: Not an ideal
    [14:06] Alfred Kelberry: wee!
    [14:06] Agatha Macbeth: Eek
    [14:06] SophiaSharon Larnia: new statements boxy
    [14:07] Alfred Kelberry: yes, some :)
    [14:07] Wol Euler: oh, that's interesting. How does it know her gender, or was that a lucky guess?
    [14:07] Bleu Oleander: talk about dropping :)
    [14:07] Alfred Kelberry: but never enough for aga :)
    [14:07] Alfred Kelberry: she's a special customer :)
    [14:07] Agatha Macbeth: It's perceptive :)
    [14:07] SophiaSharon Larnia: hah
    [14:07] Archmage Atlantis: Remember Lord of the Rings, one to wear them
    [14:07] Archmage Atlantis: Tales are true
    [14:08] Agatha Macbeth: Ah, good old Sauron
    [14:08] Alfred Kelberry: i've only seen one movie
    [14:08] Wol Euler: you should get out more
    [14:08] Alfred Kelberry: :)
    [14:08] Agatha Macbeth: Read the book, it's way better
    [14:08] Wol Euler: there are dozens released every year, you know
    [14:08] Alfred Kelberry: aga, yes, it's trendy to say that a book is better :)
    [14:08] Archmage Atlantis: I started with Ivanhoe
    [14:08] Wol Euler: not trendy, just true
    [14:08] Agatha Macbeth: And true, usually
    [14:08] Agatha Macbeth: snap
    [14:08] Wol Euler: the book is almost always better than the film
    [14:08] Wol Euler: IMHO
    [14:08] Archmage Atlantis: It is true
    [14:09] Bleu Oleander: :)
    [14:09] Alfred Kelberry: if you read a book first, especially true :)
    [14:09] Agatha Macbeth: Films leave too much out owing to time constraints
    [14:09] Wol Euler: mmhmm
    [14:09] SophiaSharon Larnia: yes can be disappointing
    [14:09] Alfred Kelberry: which is... well, obvious
    [14:09] Agatha Macbeth: East of eden was only the last quarter of the book
    [14:09] Wol Euler: why aren't films 19 hours long?
    [14:09] Wol Euler: that way they could get in more of the story
    [14:09] Agatha Macbeth: Blade runner was similar
    [14:09] Archmage Atlantis: Till Avatar, no movie captured the moment
    [14:10] Agatha Macbeth: Well, time contraints on actors, producers, studios etc
    [14:10] Archmage Atlantis: The junction of time/space/life
    [14:10] Bleu Oleander: bye everyone :)
    [14:10] Bleu Oleander: take care
    [14:10] Wol Euler: bye bleu, take care
    [14:10] Agatha Macbeth: Plus everybody needs paying of course!
    [14:10] SophiaSharon Larnia: bye Belu :)
    [14:10] Agatha Macbeth: Bye bleu
    [14:10] Agatha Macbeth: Or Belu
    [14:10] Wol Euler: "Belu" would be a nice name
    [14:10] Agatha Macbeth: Belu lugosi's dead
    [14:10] Archmage Atlantis: Of course gges
    [14:10] Wol Euler: mmhmm
    [14:11] Alfred Kelberry: when you read a book, you're a tabula rasa so to speak. then when you come to see a movie you have all the baggage of judgment and expectations.
    [14:11] Agatha Macbeth: Undead, undead, undead
    [14:11] Wol Euler grins.
    [14:11] Archmage Atlantis: Bein Human
    [14:11] SophiaSharon Larnia: ive just started watching that
