    The Guardian for this meeting was Eden Haiku. The comments are by Eden Haiku. SophiaSharon, iwandertoo (Susan), Yakuzza, Bleu, Storm and Xirana attended the session. We were observed by an hidden "observerm resident". 

    This was a strange session that started with a massive crash and ended in a PaB Airways tour on a magic toast carpet !

    We had started a conversation, but as I crashed before I remembered to claim the session, this fragment of the log has vanished into limbo as well as many of us.

    [Updated: Wol Euler recovered the conversation before the crash from the autologging database.]

    Storm Nordwind: Banana flavored simshake for me please
    SophiaSharon Larnia: hehe
    Eden Haiku: hehe tks for the butterflies Yak!
    SophiaSharon Larnia: I can tell you that an avatar had rezzed at the landing point just before we all crashed, not that that probably has anything to do with it
    Yakuzza Lethecus: sun gave them to me, she's a well of positive gifts :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: yes she is :)
    Eden Haiku: She is :)
    Bleu Oleander: :))

    Eden Haiku: I was reflecting on my typos this morning
    Eden Haiku: Thinking how I go into a frenzy
    Eden Haiku: to say something
    Eden Haiku: usually not that important :)
    Eden Haiku: and I type too fast


    Two threads intertwining: Chauvet cave paintings and typos tempo

    Bleu Oleander: saw a wonderful film this weekend: Cave of Forgotten Dreams by Werner Herzog

    SophiaSharon Larnia: important enough to want to get out, no?

    Bleu Oleander: about the Chauvet cave in France
    Eden Haiku: Oh yes, you gave us the trailer Bleu. How was it?
    Bleu Oleander: it was filmed in 3D
    Bleu Oleander: drawings are dated back 32,000 years
    SophiaSharon Larnia: wow
    Bleu Oleander: amazing!!
    Bleu Oleander: don't miss it
    Eden Haiku: Yes, the trailer was impressive.
    Eden Haiku: Do you need special glasses to see it?
    Bleu Oleander: yes
    Bleu Oleander: hi Xirana
    Xirana Oximoxi: hello to all this nice people:)
    Eden Haiku: Hello Xirana!
    Bleu Oleander: we then had a conversation with Werner about making the film
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey xirana
    SophiaSharon Larnia: hi Xirana :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: oh wow Bleu how wonderful
    Bleu Oleander: only had 6 days to do it

    Eden Haiku: Yes, Sharon, I guess I should think it's important enough :)

    Eden Haiku: to get out

    Xirana Oximoxi: hi Yaku, Storm, Eden, Bleu, Susan, Sharon :)

    SophiaSharon Larnia: did you mean in chat or when your'e writing ?

    iwandertoo Resident: waves
    Eden Haiku: because the drawings are fragile Bleu?
    Bleu Oleander: yes Eden

    Eden Haiku: in mean writing Sharon (typos)

    Bleu Oleander: the French gov't limited access

    Eden Haiku: and also how I sometimes write loooong sentences
    Eden Haiku: which can break the rythm

    Bleu Oleander: they couldn't film more than 4 hours each day

    Eden Haiku: there is a tempo to our conversations
    SophiaSharon Larnia: yes :) in that case, Eden, how can one help it, really, it would take amazing self control to be able to spell everything right :D
    Eden Haiku: hehe

    Eden Haiku: why only 4 hours a day I wonder?
    Bleu Oleander: human breath damages the paintings
    Eden Haiku: does the drawings "rest" in the meantime?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: how priceless, that we still have them
    Eden Haiku: picture prehistoric horses relaxing in their caves, frolicking around while Werner Herzog is not around...
    Bleu Oleander: causes mold to grow and disturbs the environment of a cave that has been shut tight for years


    Eden Haiku: ah I see, 4 hours stretches is the maximum of breathing time...
    Bleu Oleander: amazing to realize that humans were painting and making music over 30,000 year ago!
    SophiaSharon Larnia: I guess they can't exactly transplant them somewhere else, and to do so seems sort of wrong to me
    Bleu Oleander: has anyone here been to any of the caves that have paintings?
    Eden Haiku: I guess we are not the first humanity Bleu :)
    Eden Haiku: I never did :(
    SophiaSharon Larnia: not yet Bleu ;0
    Eden Haiku: Have you?
    Xirana Oximoxi: in Spain we have Altamira paintings...impossible to visit.. but they have made an exact copy for visitors and tourist
    Bleu Oleander: the movie is almost like being there! I wish I could visit them
    Eden Haiku: I have seen Egyptian tombs though. But that's not that ancient ...
    Storm Nordwind is happy enough to see pictures taken by others.


    Altamira caves 

    Xirana Oximoxi: http://www.google.es/search?q=altami...w=1280&bih=830
    Bleu Oleander: yes, I have been inside Egyptian tombs also
    SophiaSharon Larnia: thanks Xirana :)
    Eden Haiku: beautiful pictures Xirana. Is Altamira near Catalonia?
    Xirana Oximoxi: yw:)
    Xirana Oximoxi: not far:)
    Xirana Oximoxi: maybe 350 km
    SophiaSharon Larnia: they have a sympathetic magic quality to them
    Bleu Oleander: they also talked about a cave in South Africa where the artifacts have been dated to 164,000 years ago
    Eden Haiku: Is your mother tongue catalan Xirana?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: oh wow


    Negative hands

    Eden Haiku: I have seen this short movie by French writer Marguerite Duras about "negative hands", these colored hands in prehistoric caves.
    Xirana Oximoxi: ehem.... 750 km. from Barcelona :)
    Bleu Oleander: there are negative and positive hands in Chauvet
    Eden Haiku: Where prehistoric people seem to claim: "I have been here"
    Xirana Oximoxi: yes, Eden Catalan is my first language:)
    Eden Haiku: Nice :)
    Xirana Oximoxi: are you French?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: :)
    Eden Haiku: From Quebec, French speaking yes.
    SophiaSharon Larnia: hard to imagine such a thing could be graffiti, but maybe :D
    Xirana Oximoxi: ahhh nice:)
    Eden Haiku: Play as Being es un "Gran hotel d'estrangers"... :)
    Xirana Oximoxi: :)
    Bleu Oleander: :)
    Eden Haiku: Negative hands are the ones with only a contour I think Bleu ?
    Eden Haiku: And positive ones the ones that are filled out?
    Bleu Oleander: yes Eden


    Students and apprentices

    Storm Nordwind would guess that negative hand graphics are simply the marks of students and apprentices
    Storm Nordwind: practising
    Eden Haiku: The need to express oneself though art is very powerful as we see in these frescoes from an antique time.
    Eden Haiku: Ah yes Storm, like our primitive prims here, when we learn how to build hehe
    Bleu Oleander: they found flutes near by also
    Storm Nordwind: perhaps yes!
    Eden Haiku: Sunshine thought me how to create a form I can wear the other day.
    Eden Haiku: But then it's floating around my body?
    Eden Haiku: Is there a way to stabilize it?
    Bleu Oleander: where is it attached Eden?
    Eden Haiku: Apprentice seeking free advice from skilled builders here :))
    Xirana Oximoxi: :)
    Eden Haiku: Let me show you...
    Bleu Oleander: what attachment point are you using for it?
    Eden Haiku: I just click"wear", Where does it say where it's attached?
    Storm Nordwind: You can override that if you want
    Bleu Oleander: you can choose where it is attached
    Eden Haiku: Oh?
    Eden Haiku: in modify?
    Storm Nordwind: Though be careful that in doing so you don't unwear something else at that point!
    Storm Nordwind: Right click the item in inventory
    Eden Haiku: oh, I see...
    Bleu Oleander: hehe ... done that Storm :)


    Storm Nordwind: you can also just accept the wear point you were given (though a new one will override that) and just edit its position.
    Eden Haiku: Ah I see :) Thank you for the tip :)
    Storm Nordwind: A posing stand is invaluable for doing the latter
    Eden Haiku: Will experiment in the privacy of my home ...
    Bleu Oleander: hehe
    Eden Haiku: Don't want to lose my obi now :))
    Xirana Oximoxi: :))
    Xirana Oximoxi: sometimes 'embarrassing' (things happens in SL
    Eden Haiku: hehe
    Xirana Oximoxi: :)
    Eden Haiku: When I introduced Eliza to an RL friend the other day
    Eden Haiku: she was wearing a kimono but almost bare breasts, she was embarrassed...:))
    SophiaSharon Larnia: smiles
    Xirana Oximoxi: once a man told me I was total naked in a welcomed area (he was serious)... and I saw me total dressed:)
    Eden Haiku: but then she found what new attachment had made this mishap possible :)
    Eden Haiku: heh Xirana, he was pulling your leg maybe?
    Xirana Oximoxi: at the end he told me not to worry...'just pixels' heheh but I left:)
    Eden Haiku: smiles
    Bleu Oleander: bye everyone ... take care :)
    Eden Haiku: Great outfit Bleu!
    Xirana Oximoxi: no, he was not puling my leg... he was telling me it was forbidden to be naked there:)
    iwandertoo Resident: waves
    SophiaSharon Larnia: bye Bleu
    Xirana Oximoxi: bye Bleu:)
    Bleu Oleander: ty Eden :)
    Eden Haiku: Bye dear :)

    Eden Haiku: Bye Sharon :)
    Xirana Oximoxi: that happened too to a boy in German chat... mysteries of SL :)
    Xirana Oximoxi: bye Sharon:)
    Eden Haiku: Yes, different viewers maybe?
    Xirana Oximoxi: that can be.. now I use always the same
    Xirana Oximoxi: and no more problems:)


    A magic toast carpet

    Eden Haiku: Storm, I saw you yesterday testing a magic toast carpet with butter... why a toast?
    Xirana Oximoxi: oh! lol... a toast' !!! :)
    Storm Nordwind: Because I have a bizarre sense of humor, perhaps?
    Eden Haiku: perhaps?
    Xirana Oximoxi: hehehe
    Storm Nordwind: definitely
    Xirana Oximoxi: :)
    Eden Haiku: Curious about what prompted the idea? Being famished?
    Eden Haiku: Breakfast time creation?
    Storm Nordwind: When it flies, golden and black toast crumbs fall off the back
    Eden Haiku: I thought British ate only porridge :)
    Storm Nordwind: No that's the Scots
    iwandertoo Resident: crumbs that feed the soul
    Storm Nordwind: and they only eat it standing up too
    Eden Haiku: Wow! Toast dust! We have fairy dust and star dust, toast dust is something new!
    iwandertoo Resident: a crumb ingested brings a smile...
    Xirana Oximoxi: is it still possible to fly with the 'carpet' of the party..Storm?
    Storm Nordwind: Oh yes.
    Xirana Oximoxi: or you've left the pilot job?
    Storm Nordwind: Today is casual day - no uniform
    Eden Haiku: Except now I think you will have to fly on a toast Xirana :)
    Xirana Oximoxi: :)
    Xirana Oximoxi: hehe ok:)
    Eden Haiku: Casual day in PaB Airways hehe
    Xirana Oximoxi: not so traditional... but really original :)
    Eden Haiku: Less 1000 Arabian nights....
    Xirana Oximoxi: yes!... more XXI century
    Eden Haiku: Shall we all take a field trip to nowhere to end the session as I have to go soon?
    Storm Nordwind: I'd like to point out that the butter is 100% organic and the flour is whole wheat and rye
    Xirana Oximoxi: yes!!! I would like it:)
    Eden Haiku: Maybe Storm could take us to an unusual kingdom?
    Eden Haiku: Is it bread you made yourself Storm?
    Eden Haiku: Yaku, i wandertoo are you up for a toast trip?
    iwandertoo Resident: best to everyone
    Storm Nordwind: Actually this is version #2. #1 used my own bread.
    iwandertoo Resident: i need to get going. sorry.
    Storm Nordwind: This is someone else's bread
    Yakuzza Lethecus: yes, didn't catch up with the chat yet
    Eden Haiku: Bye iwandertoo, see you soon!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: but i do
    Xirana Oximoxi: bye Susan:)


    Eden Haiku: Ok, let's go for a short tour Storm?
    Storm Nordwind: Sure
    Eden Haiku: Coming Yak?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: does butter cost extra ?
    Xirana Oximoxi: weeeeeeeeeeeeeee


    And off we go, on the wings of PaB Airways with our dear pilot Storm in casual wear and Yaku playing as a tour guide. We hear Xirana's voice for the first time (nice catalonian accent!), flying over the Molecule and the Dome, the gorgeous SL retreat center built by Sophia Sharon, the lush Kuan Yin gardens, landing at the tea house where Play as Being started three years ago and back at the pavilion after an exhilarating ride!
