    Hokon Cazalet: uhoh
    Hokon Cazalet: I lost my pc sound
    Hokon Cazalet: brb I need to relog
    Paradise Tennant: oh no
    Paradise Tennant: hiya arch :) gtsy :)
    Archmage Atlantis: Hi, Paradise (fog person), druth
    Paradise Tennant: waves a foggy wave :)
    Archmage Atlantis: Hmm, druth, is Paradise a fog to you?
    Archmage Atlantis: Sorry, I forget my manners......
    druth Vlodovic: I've got so many windows open paradise is only a voice to me :)
    Archmage Atlantis: I got called on the carpet by an old friend today
    Paradise Tennant: smiles
    Paradise Tennant: at druth :)
    Paradise Tennant: what happened arch ?
    Archmage Atlantis: I always want to know what it happening and why, and I forget that everyone, does not appreciate that
    Archmage Atlantis: Hi, Hokon
    Hokon Cazalet: =)
    druth Vlodovic: uh oh
    druth Vlodovic: what did you ask?
    Archmage Atlantis: I was supposed to understand that "it's not important" and "I don't want to talk about it" were similar........indications to stop asking questions
    druth Vlodovic: or to dig deeper depending on all sorts of strange and wonderful factors
    Archmage Atlantis: I don't know.....all I know is I missed the "social clues""........but that happens a lot
    Archmage Atlantis: dig deeper....yep that's me
    Hokon Cazalet: hold on a sec . . .
    Paradise Tennant: we should all have sub titles in big print – it would make everything so much easier
    druth Vlodovic: nah, that'd be easy, we might all understand one another and be happy
    Hokon Cazalet: darn, paradise is still an ether cloud to me . . .
    druth Vlodovic: I like luminous beings
    Hokon Cazalet: =)
    druth Vlodovic: hey sue
    iwandertoo Resident: hi team
    Archmage Atlantis: I agree with the first part of that sentence druth, about understanding each other, but I'm not sure that it would make us happy *g*
    Hokon Cazalet: hiya susan =)
    Archmage Atlantis: Yo, Susan, wass-up
    Paradise Tennant: hiya susan gtsy
    druth Vlodovic: people getting along make one another happy, and nothing is as big as people imagine (well, not much anyway)
    druth Vlodovic: to put things in perspective though, he might have snapped at you because he was upset, rather than being upset at you
    Paradise Tennant: nods yes .. sometimes people react to their own emotions not yours ..
    druth Vlodovic: especially if he is a good friend, then he'd be upset and feeling more secure because you're around, making his emotions harder to control
    Paradise Tennant: yes so funny how we are the most volatile with those who are closest to us and so well behaved with strangers :)
    Archmage Atlantis: all good points
    Archmage Atlantis: Hi Freud :) - (talking fast to beat the bell)
    Paradise Tennant: hiya Freud :)
    Freud Jungsten: Heya... way lagged
    Archmage Atlantis: Hiya, Ewan
    Paradise Tennant: Hiya Ewan gtsy :)
    druth Vlodovic: we're discussing interpersonal esoterica and obfuscation
    Ewan Bonham: Hi Folks!
    Hokon Cazalet: hi freud =)
    Hokon Cazalet: hi ewan
    Paradise Tennant: We are talking of the vagarities of human communication ..
    Ewan Bonham: Lol...:)...big words...:)
    Freud Jungsten: osiyo
    Archmage Atlantis: Wow....big words
    Paradise Tennant: how hard it is to understand one another sometimes ..
    druth Vlodovic: the more syllables involved the more intelligent the phrase :)
    Freud Jungsten: What?
    Freud Jungsten smiles
    Ewan Bonham: Lol..
    Freud Jungsten brings up an internet dictionary.
    Paradise Tennant: in part I think because we are little monkeys who love a good story so we embellish .what is said .. with our translation :)
    Paradise Tennant: smiles
    Archmage Atlantis: clarification - the more syllables, the more intelligent the phrase appears to be
    Archmage Atlantis: Hey, I like a good monkey story *g*
    Ewan Bonham: Yes...cause the heart communicates in one syllable phrases..:)
    druth Vlodovic: until someone brings in a dictionary
    Freud Jungsten: To late.
    Archmage Atlantis: Sometimes, even different dictionaries don't agree.....and word usage evolves
    druth Vlodovic: sending small rodents electronically would settle a lot of online debates
    Freud Jungsten: Why small?
    Paradise Tennant: think there is a lot to be said for unspoken communication .. birds animals kind of see your thoughts .. research shows that parrots can read their owners mind from 55 feet away and accurately depict the picture they are looking ..almost 30% of the time .. just surfing consciousness :)
    Archmage Atlantis: My favorite in English is "bad".....which, can mean good or bad
    Paradise Tennant: smiles at druth
    druth Vlodovic: voles
    Paradise Tennant: bad is a big word
    Paradise Tennant: smiles
    Archmage Atlantis: Agree Paradise, animals are much more clear
    druth Vlodovic: lol, you've never lived with cats
    druth Vlodovic: "moody" is a word we invented to describe them
    Paradise Tennant: lol they are mystics :) shrouded in the unknowable
    Archmage Atlantis: Like my 17 yr old cat who insisted on eating the potato chips tonight when I nodded off
    druth Vlodovic: but I guess you always know what their moods are
    Paradise Tennant: sighs looks up from her vegan lasagna knowing that now she will want potato chips too :)
    Freud Jungsten: Cats are predictable, people are not.
    Archmage Atlantis: Actually, cats are the easiest to read.....they want whatever one doesn't want them to have
    Freud Jungsten: 20 sec text lag for me.. painful.
    Archmage Atlantis: Och, Freud
    druth Vlodovic: it's not right to make lasagnas out of vegans, no matter what we think of them
    Ewan Bonham: You can have vegan lasagna..:)
    Paradise Tennant: druth they are training rats to sniff out land mines in Africa ..very sucessful program .. each rat has a trainer .. they appear to be wonderfully close ..the rats are too light to set up the mines ..doing better than dogs ..covers Blue's ears for a moment there
    Paradise Tennant: lol
    Freud Jungsten: Yes, vegans taste funny like clowns.
    Paradise Tennant: lol
    Paradise Tennant: poor vegans
    druth Vlodovic: so the trainer follows the rat and...
    Freud Jungsten: I dated a vegan once.... once.... grins
    Archmage Atlantis: Never knew Bleu was a dog.......types well......Nimbus is more random in his trips across the key board
    Paradise Tennant: hmm they set up a rope grid .. put the rats in little harnesses and they clip them to the grid lines they walk back and forth and paw at the spots where they can smell a mine .. not one rat fatality :)
    Freud Jungsten: So no rat lasagna then?
    Ewan Bonham: Yes, but how do you get rats to want to do that?

    Paradise Tennant: they interviewed the trainers who were all very enamored with them
    Ewan Bonham: Apparently not, Freud..
    Archmage Atlantis: Squirrel stew ain't too bad,,,,gotta clean out all the buckshot tho
    Paradise Tennant: training ;) reward praise love ..the best .. incentive
    Archmage Atlantis: Rats......not so much
    Freud Jungsten: Stew? Squirrel is by far best in a pie.
    Archmage Atlantis: Where is Angela Lansbury when one needs her? ..... Need a song from the musical "The Demon Barber of Seville" :)))
    Paradise Tennant: loves the idea of people bursting into song at random :)
    Hokon Cazalet: Weeee! ^.^
    Paradise Tennant: hiya nizar92 welcome
    Freud Jungsten: What are you talking about?
    Paradise Tennant: have you been to pab before
    Archmage Atlantis: Heya nizar
    Hokon Cazalet turns her force field on, deflecting all bullets with ease
    Hokon Cazalet: MWHAHAHA!!!
    nizar92 Ferraris: what
    nizar92 Ferraris: yoré til kelkun ki parle francais ici
    Hokon Cazalet: im from the 22nd century, projectile weapons are out of fashion
    Paradise Tennant: smiles nizar we normally just sit and talk :)
    Archmage Atlantis: You are welcome to join us in peace, Nizar
    Archmage Atlantis: Ah well
    Paradise Tennant: smiles sigh well not a vegan anyways :)
    Hokon Cazalet goes back to her chinese food
    Hokon Cazalet: hehe
    Hokon Cazalet: I was vegetarian for a while, but never vegan, i got vegan friends though
    nizar92 Ferraris: I want to sit but I can’t
    Hokon Cazalet: right-click --> sit here
    Paradise Tennant: smiles
    Paradise Tennant: ok just right click and select sit
    Archmage Atlantis: np, I've been in the fountain a time or two
    Hokon Cazalet: me too =)
    Hokon Cazalet: I do that in rl
    Paradise Tennant: there is a little box off to your right that if you .. click on it , it will give you a notecard that explains what this group is about ..
    Hokon Cazalet: sit on the ledge of a pond
    Ewan Bonham: I've swum in the pool .."-
    Hokon Cazalet: hehe I havent done that
    Paradise Tennant: we normally just talk about life about appearances about what it all is  or means …
    Paradise Tennant: we also record our sessions on a wiki site called playasbeing.org
    nizar92 Ferraris: ok
    Paradise Tennant: do you mind your comments being recorded nizar?
    nizar92 Ferraris: see you later
    nizar92 Ferraris: friends
    Freud Jungsten: ciao
    Archmage Atlantis: Hi, Stevenaia
    Ewan Bonham: Hi Steve..
    Hokon Cazalet: hiya =)
    Paradise Tennant: hiya stev :) gtsy :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: hiya
    Archmage Atlantis: I only just this figured out gtsy vs. gutsey
    Archmage Atlantis: *this week
    druth Vlodovic: I'm not sure I told anyone here my latest thought on communication
    druth Vlodovic: we only send meaning in terms of symbols, words, facial expressions etc, never directly
    Archmage Atlantis: I don't remember it druth, but being old I forget a lot
    Ewan Bonham: No, you have not communicated it..:)
    druth Vlodovic: so any message spends a period of time in a state of meaninglessness
    druth Vlodovic: and derives all of its meaning at the receiving end directly from the listener
    Ewan Bonham: Druth it only has meaning when it is understoo by the receiver..
    Archmage Atlantis: Agree with that last bit, the listener hears the meaning the listener assigns
    druth Vlodovic: so anything said to you is just your own thoughts, inspired by symbols

    nizar92 Ferraris: damage
    Paradise Tennant: good nite susan :)
    Archmage Atlantis: Agree, druth....that is an interesting way to say it
    Paradise Tennant: very interesting :)
    Paradise Tennant: still comprehending .. blinking here
    Paradise Tennant: lol or err ascribing my meaning :)
    Paradise Tennant: sometimes communication springs without words to understanding I guess emotions which fly between people are communication that has not been abstracted or gutted so to speak
    nizar92 Ferraris: push bullets
    Paradise Tennant: smiles at nizar ;) sitting would be easier :)
    nizar92 Ferraris: push
    stevenaia Michinaga: I sort of see what you said, Druth as a container of conciousness that is passed from person to person
    Ewan Bonham: Para...or received..:)
    Ewan Bonham: Yes, Steve..
    Paradise Tennant: hmm so getting back to the point where we are all one consciousness ..
    nizar92 Ferraris: draw
    druth Vlodovic: paint
    Paradise Tennant: sketch :)

    Archmage Atlantis: Tabled, Luci....got intense
    Lucinda Lavender: ah...
    Lucinda Lavender: breathing then...
    druth Vlodovic: communication through the loss of items of clothing
    Ewan Bonham: Or the loss of items of clothing being a means of communication...:)
    Lucinda Lavender: well...I tried to move the rocks around in the box of stars...and kept accidentally moving my skirt so put it away...
    Lucinda Lavender: now just looking again...

    Wonderful title, but I can't help but think this may have been the group's only opportunity for a 'chicken bath' title. hahaha
