    Maxine Walden: yes, both are nourishing...
    Dash Earthboy: wb Zon
    Dash Earthboy: yep
    Maxine Walden: hi,Zon
    Bertram Jacobus: hi zon again ... (?) ;-)

    After these intros we begin the conversation

    Maxine Walden: So what flavor of conversation would folks like to have?
    Dash Earthboy: history is the science of why one never takes two steps into the same river?
    Agatha Macbeth: Hi all
    Bertram Jacobus: hi aggers
    Agatha Macbeth: (Or hi again!)
    Maxine Walden: nice to see you again
    Maxine Walden: :)
    FcSeeker Resident: you say interesting thing Dash...
    Agatha Macbeth: Sorry we lost you Max :(
    Maxine Walden: Dash, care to say more...?
    Dash Earthboy: more?
    FcSeeker Resident: as I've learned that saying that 'history repeats himself all the time'
    Maxine Walden: yes, Agatha, somehow I slipped through the tp net...
    Dash Earthboy: happy to oblige ;)
    Agatha Macbeth smiles
    Bertram Jacobus: hiya woly ! ... :-)
    Maxine Walden: always nice to see you, Wol
    Wol Euler smiles.
    Dash Earthboy: sans burka
    Agatha Macbeth: She's been busy talking Arabic :p
    Wol Euler: heheh
    Hokon Cazalet: hi coprinka
    Wol Euler: yeah, it catches on the horns, very tricky to wear
    Maxine Walden: ah...multi talented...
    Agatha Macbeth: Sure is!
    Maxine Walden: Dash was in the middle of a thought a bit ago...
    Agatha Macbeth: Please continue Dash
    Wol Euler listens.

    Zon continues the thread abotu history and repeating it...

    Zon Kwan: history usually shows how man makes same mistakes over and over again
    Dash Earthboy: was i in the middle of something again?
    Maxine Walden: :), Dash
    Agatha Macbeth: Agreed, Zon
    Dash Earthboy: i hate when that happens
    FcSeeker Resident: do you mean that the same man makes the same mistake again and again ?
    Wol Euler: careless of him -- and unimaginative too
    Wol Euler: at least make fresh ones
    Dash Earthboy: :)
    Maxine Walden: maybe we have two poles about the same 'thought': can't really repeat anything because things always change....but also men keep repeating the same mistakes, as if never learn from history/experience
    Dash Earthboy: there's something to be said for consistency?
    FcSeeker Resident: as far as I've learned, there is much things that man needs many lives to learn
    Maxine Walden: would agree, Fc
    Agatha Macbeth: Me too
    Zon Kwan: repetition is the teacher
    Dash Earthboy: what about these books "all i need to know I learned in kindergarten?"
    Maxine Walden: :)
    Zon Kwan: thats for the clever ones
    FcSeeker Resident: that can be one person's experience
    Zon Kwan: not for me
    Wol Euler: some people lead simple lives
    Zon Kwan: must go see you guys
    Bertram Jacobus: i heared teachers who said : telling once a thing is enough. when the time comes the seed will grow ...
    Bertram Jacobus: bye zon ...
    Maxine Walden: may feel difficult to keep open-eyed and learning as we go through life...
    FcSeeker Resident: there is Uranus with her teaching
    FcSeeker Resident: "What ever you want to understand, you must experience by yourself"
    Maxine Walden: because being open to learn means change and loss
    Wol Euler nods.
    Hokon Cazalet: yup maxine
    Wol Euler: and admitting that you need to do it
    Maxine Walden: yes, Wol
    FcSeeker Resident: so is it possible to avoid learning ?
    Dash Earthboy: in RL i'm surrounded by those who think so
    Maxine Walden: :)
    Wol Euler: heheheh
    Dash Earthboy: except for what they want me to learn from them :)
    FcSeeker Resident: is there something that you want to learn from them ?
    Dash Earthboy: nope
    FcSeeker Resident: then I think that you could have peace inside you for them
    FcSeeker Resident: they are weeker than you
    FcSeeker Resident: and they are that because they have this problem
    FcSeeker Resident: they believe that they know better than you do
    Dash Earthboy: so far so true

    Trying to introduce the complexity of learning but also retaining an inner voice

    Maxine Walden: maybe there is a fine line between being open to learning, but also having a sense of an inner voice...
    FcSeeker Resident: can you see that you do genuinly teach them , even they might notice that much later than their this life
    Bertram Jacobus: hii zen ! ... :-
    FcSeeker Resident: there's still also the option that they notice that sooner
    Wol Euler: hello zen
    Dash Earthboy: hi zen
    Hokon Cazalet: i think they feed on each other maxine: the inner voice gets stronger with learning, and one can learn better with a strong inner voice
    FcSeeker Resident: Hello Zen
    Maxine Walden: hi, Zen
    Zen Arado: hi folks
    Hokon Cazalet: hi zen
    Maxine Walden: agree, Hokon
    Hokon Cazalet: without a strong inner voice, one is blind; without learning one's voice is empty
    Maxine Walden: ;)
    Hokon Cazalet: =)

    Zen returns and we begin a more jocular to and fro

    Agatha Macbeth: Hello again Zen
    Zen Arado: hello again Aggers
    Zen Arado: bought a new AO
    Zen Arado: hope it lets me sit places
    Agatha Macbeth: Do tell...
    Dash Earthboy: congrats Zen
    Agatha Macbeth: AOs are a pain in my experience
    Zen Arado: got fed up turning last one on and off
    Zen Arado: yeh
    Agatha Macbeth: They never seem to do what you want to do
    Agatha Macbeth: Especially sits
    FcSeeker Resident: aha
    Zen Arado: yeh keep sinking into seats
    FcSeeker Resident: (tries something)
    Agatha Macbeth: And other strange stuff
    Zen Arado: probably cos I buy cheap ones
    Maxine Walden: what'd you just try, Fc?
    Dash Earthboy: we like strange :)
    FcSeeker Resident: (didn't help to detach it)
    Agatha Macbeth: That's a relief Dash :)
    Wol Euler: :)
    FcSeeker Resident: (just would like to look a bit happier)
    Maxine Walden: :)
    Agatha Macbeth: You can get smile HUDs
    Dash Earthboy: (anything in parentheses can be ignored) -- writer's motto
    Hokon Cazalet: i never liked the ones i got
    Zen Arado: smiles
    Hokon Cazalet: ☻☻☻☻☻☻☻☻☻☻
    Zen Arado: text smile
    Maxine Walden: trapped in a sad-looking posture?
    FcSeeker Resident: I'm smiling, but that's not to see when I sit like this
    Zen Arado: yeh some sats make you slouch over and look sad
    Hokon Cazalet: yup
    Maxine Walden: hmm
    Agatha Macbeth: Maybe pandas don't smile much?
    Bertram Jacobus: but can´t you raise your head with putting the mouse pointer above you perhaps fc ?
    Maxine Walden: In a way, by their coloring, I think I have always thought nearly all pandas were smiling
    Agatha Macbeth: Are you getting enough bamboo?
    Hokon Cazalet: hehe agatha
    Hokon Cazalet wants a teddy bear avatar
    Dash Earthboy: me too Max
    FcSeeker Resident: I've tried that too without success
    Maxine Walden: :)

    Wol then gives Hokon a teddy to interact with Fc whose av is a panda.  Animal antics soon spring to life while the rest of us watch

    Wol Euler: I took Hokon at her word and gave her a teddy bear av
