    The Guardian for this meeting was Wester Kiranov. The comments are by Wester Kiranov.

    Archmage Atlantis, eggsalad Ormstein and Alfred Kelberry joined me and we had a quiet conversation about observations.

    Wester Kiranov: hi arch
    Archmage Atlantis: Hello Wester
    Archmage Atlantis: Early Monday morning.......I thought early Wednesday mornings wer quiet :)
    Wester Kiranov: early Tuesday mornings are quiet as wel :)
    Archmage Atlantis: True
    Archmage Atlantis: It would be a good time to opine about life, the universe, and everything,,,,,but I don't have anything much to say anymor *g*
    Wester Kiranov: in rl here it is not quiet at all, I've got my twins arguing over breakfast
    Wester Kiranov: so about those other things i can only say 42
    Archmage Atlantis: Yes, 42....but we've had to build another planet to find the meanin of 42........I am glad you have your twins.....frustrating tho others we love may be, we love them still.....and that is part of the meaning of 42
    eggsalad Ormstein: hi
    Archmage Atlantis: Hi
    Wester Kiranov: hi eggsalad
    eggsalad Ormstein: hi arch. hi west
    Wester Kiranov: have a seat
    Archmage Atlantis: Pls sit with us egg
    eggsalad Ormstein: ok
    Archmage Atlantis: Somehow i feel I should insert some brilliant comment,.....but just sitting here is enought
    eggsalad Ormstein: not much for the recorder to record
    Wester Kiranov: I'm glad you resisted being brilliant then ;) (to arch)
    Archmage Atlantis: Nope, not much....but more than often this is a quiet time
    Alfred Kelberry: hi :)
    Alfred Kelberry: wuff!
    Wester Kiranov: hi alf

    Archmage Atlantis: ltns
    Alfred Kelberry: lovely manga sun did
    Alfred Kelberry: um, what's the topic?
    Wester Kiranov: yes, that was a very nice idea
    Wester Kiranov: no topic, as yet
    Archmage Atlantis: The boards, yes.....the topic is silence
    Alfred Kelberry: i thought so, archy :)
    Alfred Kelberry: i like this pic
    Alfred Kelberry: i think it's adams quietly observing the crowd
    Archmage Atlantis: So we observe the observer, very zen
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Wester Kiranov: i thought that was quantum mechanics :)
    Alfred Kelberry: wester, it was derived from zen :)
    Wester Kiranov: zen is not observing the nonobserver as well :)
    Archmage Atlantis: My impressiom of the viewpoint often expressed as zen is that there is no viepoint yet one exists
    Archmage Atlantis: doublespeak
    Archmage Atlantis: conundrum
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    eggsalad Ormstein: this sim has an odd topography
    Alfred Kelberry: wester, in human relations, if you observe quietly you don't really influence much
    Alfred Kelberry: we often don't notice the presence of our observer behind the bushes :)
    Archmage Atlantis: Agree, Eggers......Storm was quite creative in the old days, before things became more standardized
    Wester Kiranov: i actually believe observing quietly is probably the most effective way of behaving
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Alfred Kelberry: yet in qm it can't happen
    eggsalad Ormstein: well, I know very little of terraforming
    Archmage Atlantis: For me, the most obvious is the lodge.....it sits on 2 sims to accomodate more avs
    Alfred Kelberry: i'm off folks
    Alfred Kelberry: thanks
    Wester Kiranov: bye boxy
    Wester Kiranov: I'm off too. bye
