    [07:28] Tess Aristocrat: ㋡

    Eliza Madrigal: Nice to meet you Tenk, will give you a note about the group
    Tess Aristocrat: beats the alternative :D
    Zen: think Tenk was here before?
    Zen: long time ago?
    boxy: 53... one must feel wise at this age
    Tenk Kidd: Thanks Eliza :)

    Tess Aristocrat: Tenk is a dear friend from Philosophy Island
    Eliza Madrigal: ah :) wonderful
    boxy: ah, this is where i met you, tenk :)
    boxy: the name is familiar
    Santoshima: love that expression: think tenk


    Tess Aristocrat: Eliza, I thought I had met you there, actually
    Tess Aristocrat: ㋡
    Play as Being 15 minute bell: Thank you.
    Eliza Madrigal: quite likely :) I think we've overlapped in a few places actually
    Tenk Kidd: I think we have met before Eliza - at PI
    Tess Aristocrat: yes ㋡
    Eliza Madrigal: yes :) fun to actually talk
    Tess Aristocrat: I see your name and your sweet spirit..I remember this..
    Tess Aristocrat: brb..
    Eliza Madrigal: aw, ty

    Eliza Madrigal: Tenk, I need to let you know that we record all of our sessions Tenk, and ask whether it is okay to include your comments :) (playasbeing.org)
    Zen: we have a mutual friend called Aurora
    boxy: yes, the spirit of pab
    boxy: this is our eliza
    boxy: *pats eliza*

    Eliza Madrigal: spirit of pab has affected eliza more like :)

    Tenk Kidd: Indeed it is - I'll try to say stuff that is erudite and stands the test of time :)
    boxy: :)
    Eliza Madrigal smiles widely!
    Eliza Madrigal: wish I'd done that
    boxy: that was the first one, tenk :)
    Zen: you won't fit in here then enk :)
    Eliza Madrigal: instead there are about two years of bla bla ...hehe
    Eliza Madrigal: kidding :)
    Santoshima: :))

    boxy: zen, actually, anyone will fit in. the logs are posted on the net :)
    Eliza Madrigal: it is quite a practice though, reading back
    Eliza Madrigal: thanks though, for your permission Tenk
    boxy: *feels peaceful in his belly*
    Eliza Madrigal: :) Boxy

    Zen wonders if he is ever erudite
    boxy: nommm... :)
    Zen: thinks not
    Eliza Madrigal: yes you are Zen
    Tenk Kidd: well, I sort of side with Edison about genius being 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration - od something like that - so if I come out with close to 1% of sense I'll be batting well
    boxy: zen, you're an erudite painter, i can tell you that :)
    Santoshima: erudite is your middle name, zen
    Eliza Madrigal: as many have said, most is 'showing up'
    Eliza Madrigal: but there seem to be layers of that...
    Zen: Grea worksare peformed not b strenth, bu by peseverace.
    Zen: ~ Samuel ohnson
    Santoshima: SJ
    Eliza Madrigal: there is being somewhere, and then there is really *there*
    Santoshima: there is no there there
    Zen: hmm Phrase express doesn't work too well for quotes
    Eliza Madrigal: :))

    boxy: tenk, i tend to think it's dna-related
    boxy: fluctuations in evolution
    Tenk Kidd: most stuff is, isn't it, Boxy?
    Eliza Madrigal tends to think of dna as an outline
    Zen: an influence

    boxy: tenk, i was referring to the edison quote
    Zen: along with all the others
    Tenk Kidd: Edison was noted for being sweaty
    Eliza Madrigal: heheh
    Zen: oh
    Eliza Madrigal: like steve jobs
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Zen: oh?
    Zen: it's all coming ut now
    boxy: or like lots of others whose names you will never know

    Eliza Madrigal: yes... the book is quite interesting in that regard, you have this person who is an incredible juxtoposition of inspiration and will and meanness often, but forces people to actualize things they wouldn't think they could
    Zen: what book?
    Eliza Madrigal: jobs biography, sorry
    Zen: oh the book about Jobs
    Zen: guessed
    Eliza Madrigal nods... was thinking that many might say the same of their parents or key teachers
    Zen: wonder if it's on Kindle
    Zen: he was a college dropout
    Zen: like Gates
    Eliza Madrigal nods
    Zen: way to go
    Zen: maybe

    Eliza Madrigal: Last night Pila shared that his last words were "oh wow oh wow"
    Eliza Madrigal: :))

    Tenk Kidd: I think Steve Jobs (and other prominent people) are sometimes misinterpreded as being more intellectually brilliant than they really were - a significant portion of their success came from hard work, adaptability, and getting the best out of those they worked with
    Zen: yes agree Tenk
    Eliza Madrigal: indeed Tenk... persistence...pushiness

    Santoshima: isn't that intelligence in action
    Eliza Madrigal: vision
    Zen: he needed the engineer guy too
    Zen: can't spell his name
    Eliza Madrigal: wozniak
    Zen: yeh that's him
    Eliza Madrigal: :) hard not to like him when reading this book... his generous nature
    Zen: yes

    Tenk Kidd: in a sense yes - a sort of 'social intelligence' as opposed to 'emotiona' or 'functional' intelligence perhaps?
    Santoshima: failing to see the need to isolate any of those aspects from the other
    Zen: he could be hard
    Zen: and fussy on detail


    Tenk Kidd: I agree Santoshima - difficult to separate 'intelligences', but I believe there are distinct sorts or types of intelligent trait (not that I have any psychological training)
    Eliza Madrigal: in part it is just inspiring to see the way collaborations happen, how people's strengths and weaknessnes may interact with environments and timings
    Tenk Kidd: fussy on detail that is important is very necessary
    Tess Aristocrat: They say 'The early bird catches the worm.' Though, I'm not so sure how that can be a good fable for the early worm... *ponders this..
    Eliza Madrigal: :))
    Zen: yeh that's what makes Apple products so good
    Zen: gosh back to this again
    Santoshima: the worm?

    Tenk Kidd: worms do seem to hava a hard time of it - perhaps it's their DNA...
    Tess Aristocrat: yes!
    Tess Aristocrat: lol
    Eliza Madrigal: lol
    Eliza Madrigal: networks are amazing... watching how key meetings open this, spark that, bring together unlikely situations
    Zen: if you cut then in half they hardly notice
    Tess Aristocrat: :0
    Eliza Madrigal: :)) Zen
    Tess Aristocrat: lollll
    Zen: it's true
    Zen: few pain receptors

    Tenk Kidd: I do like that you can go to an Apple showroom and they have all their stuff on working on display and it just does - I can't imagine Windows stuff doing that
    Eliza Madrigal thinks of lizard tails
    Tess Aristocrat: aha! worms are more adaptive
    Zen: used to use them fishing
    Eliza Madrigal: right.... very distinctive and everything friendly and saying 'touch me' in a way
    Zen: felt bad sticking a hook through them
    boxy's nose: Eliza Madrigal slowly strokes boxy's wet nose
    Eliza Madrigal giggles
    boxy's nose: Eliza Madrigal pokes boxy's nose

    Tess Aristocrat: Oh, I know..I remember the dismay of trying to catch lizards as a child only to come up with a lizard tail
    Eliza Madrigal: did you ever put them on your ears? lizards?
    Zen: these sessions are turning into Apple promotions
    Tess Aristocrat: yesEliza lolll
    Zen: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: hahah!!
    Tess Aristocrat: hehehe :P
    Eliza Madrigal: and lizard promotions
    Zen: lol
    Zen: disposable tails
    Eliza Madrigal: and playfullness promotions :)
    Tess Aristocrat: lol

    Zen: have never seen a lizard

    Tenk Kidd: I'm afraid I have to duck out - just before the worms get to the Apples...
    Eliza Madrigal: what?
    Zen: none in Ireland
    Tenk Kidd: Catch you later :)
    Eliza Madrigal: or in Australia?
    Eliza Madrigal: Bye Tenk
    Santoshima: bye tenk
    Zen: bye Tenk :)
    Tess Aristocrat: Tenk, be safe and thanks for coming!
    Eliza Madrigal: thanks for joining us today
    Tenk Kidd: Tara the noo!
    Zen: not in Sydney anyway
    Zen: hmmm maybe there were
    Zen: long time ago
    Tess Aristocrat: I will find a pic..
    Zen: och aye
    Eliza Madrigal: Miami is a lizard land

    Santoshima: hmm, no lizards in ireland? truly?
    Zen: and gators
    Tess Aristocrat: here, we have lots of chameleons
    Eliza Madrigal: oooo
    Eliza Madrigal: yes here too, as in SL :)
    Zen: maybe St Patrick drove them out along with the snakes
    Eliza Madrigal: must be it Zen
    Tess Aristocrat: and even some geckos!
    Zen: too cold and wet more likely
    Eliza Madrigal: geckos are near and dear to my heart
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Zen: lizards and gators cold blooded?
    Zen: reptiles
    Eliza Madrigal: yes they don't like cold Zen.... when we have a snap, people bring iguanas into their homes and bathtubs
    Tess Aristocrat: though, I think the geckos are not indigenous to the area
    Eliza Madrigal nods
    Santoshima: imported?
    Tess Aristocrat: I think they got started here..when people had them as pets
    Santoshima: oh
    Eliza Madrigal: there is a big gecko pet market... my daughter had a leopard gecko for a while actually
    Tess Aristocrat: and then they either escaped or were turned loose
    Eliza Madrigal: mmm, nods
    Santoshima: right

    Santoshima: any frogs there, zen?
    Tess Aristocrat: because now they are all over
    Zen: yes we have frogs
    Tess Aristocrat: ㋡
    Eliza Madrigal: :))
    Zen: just no reptiles or snakes
    Zen: so must be temperature related
    Santoshima: yeah

    Eliza Madrigal: have enjoyed being with you guys but I'd intended to stay just a few minutes.. such a full day... have the log tho
    Santoshima: bye eliza, take good care
    Eliza Madrigal: be well and see you soon :)
