    oO0Oo Resident exclaims
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Multiverse1 Resident: digging for gold Zen
    Zen Arado: a heart of gold :)
    Zen Arado: hard to find
    Multiverse1 Resident: yes, a claim,
    Zen Arado: but keep on searching :)
    Archmage Atlantis: The wheelchair.....I listened....the N Ireland...I listened
    Lucinda Lavender: that looks like a nice spot to sit Korel
    Multiverse1 Resident: iThe gold of the heart then
    Korel Laloix: Nice view... and I feel so tall.. grins
    Multiverse1 Resident: so, a seat is added, then
    Korel Laloix: NOt very comfy though.
    Multiverse1 Resident: yes, take a pillow then Korel
    Zen Arado: what are the texts?
    Zen Arado: from chat logs?
    Multiverse1 Resident: yes
    Multiverse1 Resident: Alf put them here as a contemmplation if you are but one, or for topics, as a group, methinx
    Zen Arado: clever..wonder if sequential or random?
    Korel Laloix: I am sure I have some fairly frightening quotes avialable.
    Archmage Atlantis: If one chooses to represent,...then one has to deside what one is that is to be represented
    Eliza Madrigal giggles Korel
    Eliza Madrigal: So far these are from 2008 so most of us are OK, haha
    Zen Arado: :) Korel
    Lucinda Lavender: is the chat log name placed in the parentheses?
    Korel Laloix: I think so.
    Eliza Madrigal: yes
    Eliza Madrigal: bracketed
    Lucinda Lavender: nods
    Eliza Madrigal: like the above "Natural Rest" nice session
    Lucinda Lavender: sounds like an interesting topic...natural rest
    Korel Laloix: I really don't have time to read the transcipts... but I have a few.
    Multiverse1 Resident: Like the fountain in a way, but a flow of quotes.
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Zen Arado: yes :)
    Lucinda Lavender: river flowing by
    Eliza Madrigal: I like the 'no real meaning' quotes too
    Zen Arado: spouting words:)
    Multiverse1 Resident: river of words and thoughts
    Multiverse1 Resident: snippets of tyme
    Lucinda Lavender: any thoughts regarding the 6 am session that are still resonating?
    Lucinda Lavender: that flow into this...
    Zen Arado: how do you cook cabbage?
    Zen Arado: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: The session asked interesting questions about time, art, the way we impose patterns ... think environment is outside, etc

    Lucinda Lavender: I usually boil or steam cabbage Zen...or eat raw
    Multiverse1 Resident: Eliza, on the environment, is it the outside or separation from self to ( other) that you refer. Physical vs: non-physical?
    Multiverse1 Resident: L like raw myself
    Archmage Atlantis: Cooking the cabbage, smile:}
    Zen Arado: that Ted video about patternicity and Agenticity was interesting
    Korel Laloix: Cabbage is great when panfired with bacon... yummy
    Eliza Madrigal: physical v non physical wasn't really a factor of discussion but drawing lines 'making something' so yes in a way
    Zen Arado: goes for Korel's suggestion :)
    Multiverse1 Resident: hhmm cabbage and bacon, my mouth waters at that
    Archmage Atlantis: It is a difficult vegoie
    Multiverse1 Resident: drawing lines, as in boundaries.
    Eliza Madrigal: yes
    Eliza Madrigal: or being drawn
    Zen Arado: just to explain...I had to cut one in half and photocopy for an art project
    Multiverse1 Resident: thought that was the reference, thx
    Zen Arado: so now might as well use it
    Eliza Madrigal: like I'm drawn toward shopping today because I must have brussel sprouts with lemon now
    Multiverse1 Resident: Like shredding cabbage
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    oO0Oo Resident: :)
    Lucinda Lavender: :))
    Archmage Atlantis: My Scotch and my Ireland sides.....those fight over cabbate
    Multiverse1 Resident: small cabbages then
    Zen Arado: removing cabage secrets :)
    Eliza Madrigal: cabbages beyond borders
    Yakuzza Lethecus: :)
    Lucinda Lavender: cabbages are so goo at not going bad
    Lucinda Lavender: good
    Korel Laloix: Where do you draw the line on cabbage though?
    Multiverse1 Resident: Growing to maturity
    Lucinda Lavender: waiting patiently
    Multiverse1 Resident: when to pick it
    Archmage Atlantis: My jewisish and my roman elements - jesu foghts
    Zen Arado: are ok on my new low carb diet
    Multiverse1 Resident: then to taste
    Zen Arado: cabbage boundaries
    Yakuzza Lethecus: bye everyone
    Multiverse1 Resident: preparation is a preference
    oO0Oo Resident: tender and raw
    Korel Laloix: Ciao
    Zen Arado: bye Yaku
    Archmage Atlantis: mY AFRrican slf
    Multiverse1 Resident: Bye Yaku
    oO0Oo Resident: Bye Yaku
    Archmage Atlantis: it tries to restablih
    Eileen Lancaster: thank you everyone for this experience (even if I only read)! I've to go now. Goodbye :)
    Korel Laloix: So lemon can make brusslespourts eatible?
    Eliza Madrigal: thanks for joining us Eileen, pleasant day to you
    Korel Laloix: Take care?
    oO0Oo Resident: Thanks for coming Eileen :)
    Lucinda Lavender: nice to meet you Eileen...come again
    Multiverse1 Resident: Bye Eileen
    Zen Arado: bye Eileen
    Eliza Madrigal: :) lemon is a good trick for many things
    Eliza Madrigal: like rice
    Korel Laloix: I know lemon is good, but doubtfull it is that good... smiles
    Eliza Madrigal: hahah Korel
    Korel Laloix: I love rice.
    Multiverse1 Resident: combinations create new configurations
    Multiverse1 Resident: so many foods we have, and ways to combine them
    Lucinda Lavender: so in making art...the idea of taking what is inside and bringing it out ...or merging in and out...just thinking about this
    Multiverse1 Resident: Muti, tastes Luci's art and words
    Eliza Madrigal: yes, Alan Watts described awareness as 'outer work no longer outside'
    Multiverse1 Resident: savors a new flavor
    Lucinda Lavender: Luci has been eating the same food for 5 days...at dinner:)
    Eliza Madrigal: like that because it describes something I think many feel but never quite can put words to
    Zen Arado: I don't think much when painting...you just do it
    Eliza Madrigal: Oh?
    Multiverse1 Resident: A bumper crop
    Lucinda Lavender: nodding to Zen
    Multiverse1 Resident: Yes Zen, you seem to allow for a free flow of events
    Zen Arado: it is intuitive, not logical or analytical I think
    Multiverse1 Resident: do you complete a work in one sitting, or develop it over a period?
    Zen Arado: depends
    Zen Arado: some are quick others take months
    Multiverse1 Resident: yes, on your flow
    Lucinda Lavender: there are these moments when a need surfaces...about repositioning things in the environment...and I often wonder if it is awareness...sudden noticing of the outer world...and working with it

    Multiverse1 Resident: I wonder if it is need, or Zen's inuition.
    Eliza Madrigal: Oh Luci, please say more?
    Zen Arado: I feel I know little about painting
    Zen Arado: it is as if there is no 'me' who did a painting
    Lucinda Lavender: I look at the environment and think that things have been beginning to crowd each other I think
    Multiverse1 Resident: an outside view
    Lucinda Lavender: so I give them more space
    oO0Oo Resident: :)
    Zen Arado: nature acting through us
    Zen Arado: all we need to do is unblock the flow?
    oO0Oo Resident: sudden feng shui
    Lucinda Lavender: imagine that Zen gets into a kind of awareness...
    Eliza Madrigal: :)))
    Lucinda Lavender: yes Sam
    Eliza Madrigal giggling... really like that phrase...
    Eliza Madrigal: sometimes the environment does seem to ask something or make a demand
    Multiverse1 Resident: Through you as you paint. I cannot paint, except in the abstract
    oO0Oo Resident: nice to ask of it
    Korel Laloix: Are you saying that painting is mainly an externally origionated expression?
    Zen Arado: it's just ordinary to me
    Zen Arado: think we tend to mysticize things ?
    Multiverse1 Resident: a conduit you are then Zen
    Zen Arado: but we are part of nature too Korel
    Zen Arado: though we like to think we are separate
    Zen Arado: I think
    Korel Laloix: YOu can say that, but when I dance, it is mostly based on what is already in me, so I could say it is mostly an internally origionaed art form.
    Zen Arado: if we have any skills or talents they were just given to us
    Korel Laloix: That is just the method.
    Multiverse1 Resident: elop these things though
    Korel Laloix: The location of the inspiration is what I meant.
    Korel Laloix: If that makes sense.
    Zen Arado: yes but you need that too to be able to express
    Multiverse1 Resident: Has your painting, and Korel your dance progressed
    Eliza Madrigal: there are studies that show it takes ten years to mastery... and then there is sudden skill
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Lucinda Lavender: ! really!
    oO0Oo Resident: that may go a very interesting path in time and dpace Korel
    Lucinda Lavender: how interesting
    Korel Laloix: I like the way I dance, but I am not competative at it.
    oO0Oo Resident: *space
    Zen Arado: I always Picasso saying it took him years to learn to paint like a child
    Eliza Madrigal: which doesn't mean there aren't those who have talents the likes of which can't be learned
    Korel Laloix: I am not any "good" by contest standards, but I like the way I feel when I do it.
    Eliza Madrigal: :)) Korel
    Zen Arado: yeh...what is 'good'? it's very subjective
    Zen Arado: and changes through the ages
    Lucinda Lavender: love the kind of dance you do Korel...
    Korel Laloix: That is also interesting, I find Picasso as interesting as looking at a slice of white bread.
    oO0Oo Resident: "location of the inspiration"
    Multiverse1 Resident: The judges have different ratings, systems, and ourselves yet another
    Korel Laloix: But I know some people are really moved by his stuff.
    Eliza Madrigal: yes, if able to see in a museum Picasso is far better... some work just doesn't translate out of 'live' very well imo
    Eliza Madrigal: and there are some with great talents whose work lacks the heart of someone who may struggle more too
    Multiverse1 Resident: interactive exhibits then
    Korel Laloix: I have seen quite a lot... and I find the frame around his stuff far far far more intersting.
    Eliza Madrigal: hahah
    Zen Arado: agree Eliza...superealism can be lifeless
    Eliza Madrigal: what about the horse and boy painting? he had many different phases
    Korel Laloix: I don't know that one... let me look.
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Druth :))
    Lucinda Lavender: I feel the location of my inspiration is an interesting question...I will have to go soon will enjoy reading and hope the claim worked...
    druth Vlodovic: hey guys
    Multiverse1 Resident: I get lost in Picasso, tends to make me wander throughout each segment of his works. The frame included
    Lucinda Lavender: HI druth
    Zen Arado: Hi Druth :)
    Eliza Madrigal: OK Luci, thank you
    Korel Laloix: Also uninterseting to me.
    Multiverse1 Resident: Hi Druth, bye Luci
    Korel Laloix: Osiyo
    Multiverse1 Resident: Beauty is
    Lucinda Lavender: :))
    oO0Oo Resident: Bye Luci.. thanks
    Lucinda Lavender: :)
    Zen Arado: bye Luci
    Korel Laloix: WHich brings up another question..... location for the inspiration for appreciation.
    Lucinda Lavender: bye all...must move my car so that plumbers can work on our street:)
    Eliza Madrigal: :)) good question
    Korel Laloix: Do we like what we see becuase the world tells us it is good, or becuase i moves us internally.
    Korel Laloix: ciao
    Multiverse1 Resident: Is thee a set point then , Korel?
    Multiverse1 Resident: there

    Zen Arado: it's hard to escape our cultural conditioning I think
    Eliza Madrigal: various flavors of appreciation, some instant and some slower cooking?
    Zen Arado: even the way our brains translates a lot of daubs of paint into a 3D version of a landscape
    Zen Arado: which is a 2D illusion
    Eliza Madrigal: nods
    Multiverse1 Resident: Sometymes we make things difficult for ourselves, sometymes we need the correct tolls or ingediants
    Multiverse1 Resident: tools
    Zen Arado: how can I look at a painting with fresh eye?
    Multiverse1 Resident: from the back?
    Zen Arado: is it possible?
    Multiverse1 Resident: or inside
    Zen Arado: :)
    Multiverse1 Resident: the presence of the painting looking at you, Zen
    Zen Arado: easier to do that wih an abstract
    Eliza Madrigal: pema uses an analogy of shifting from painting to paint at times
    Eliza Madrigal: seeing under the story
    Zen Arado: abstracts can make peole uneasy because there are no familiar guidelines
    oO0Oo Resident: "Sometimes people find that being tender and raw is threatening and seemingly exhausting. Openness seems demanding and energy consuming, so they prefer to cover up their tender heart. "
    Multiverse1 Resident: the storyline shifts
    Zen Arado: hmmm yes Sam
    oO0Oo Resident: --VCTR
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Multiverse1 Resident: people find things a certain way, based on your environment at tymes, as Zen spoke of. or our "history"
    Zen Arado: I suppose that applies to all of our worldview
    Zen Arado: our mutual consensus
    Multiverse1 Resident: individuals we are, yet share a world
    Multiverse1 Resident: many views indeed
    Multiverse1 Resident: consensus, remains group oriented though
    Multiverse1 Resident: unless it is a consensus of one.
    Multiverse1 Resident: Multi sees a consensual painting of Zen
    Zen Arado: I'm going against the main view ideas of what constitutes a good diet atm
    Multiverse1 Resident: and, is it working?
    Zen Arado: so hope I will survive
    Zen Arado: only tried it for a week
    Zen Arado: so far
    Zen Arado: low carb
    oO0Oo Resident: good carbs bad carbs?
    Multiverse1 Resident: I hope such also, who would paint the cabbages then
    Eliza Madrigal: why so much dieting Zen?
    Zen Arado: very like Atkins
    Zen Arado: yes same guy Sam
    Zen Arado: Gary Taubes
    Korel Laloix: Well they tell me to eat lots of carbs to gain weight, so it would follow that eating less should be good for most trying to loose.
    Zen Arado: Wester started it
    Zen Arado: she lost 30 lbs
    Multiverse1 Resident: works for her then
    Multiverse1 Resident: wortha try
    Eliza Madrigal: good results long term?
    Zen Arado: the book is very convincing
    Zen Arado: 'Why We get fat'
    oO0Oo Resident: no one lives long enough to measure Eliza ;)
    Eliza Madrigal: :)))
    Multiverse1 Resident: :-)
    Eliza Madrigal: I like all the diets that tell you to be very indulgent in small amounts
    Korel Laloix: Frustrating topic.
    Zen Arado: there is a good study of diets ion outube
    oO0Oo Resident: confirmation bias diet
    Zen Arado: a guy who was a vegetearian 25 years
    Eliza Madrigal: hahaha
    Zen Arado: and a nutritionist
    Zen Arado: was horrified to see Atkins diet doo really well in all sorts ot studies
    Zen Arado: true Sam

    Eliza Madrigal: just have seen so many people do great on diets and then beat themselves up later when it didn't 'stick' because long term not sustainable
    Multiverse1 Resident: I am going to have an omlet now, this hungry talk makes me so.
    Multiverse1 Resident: Bye all
    Zen Arado: hard to be open but Ihave treid various diets in the past
    Eliza Madrigal: :) Bye Multi
    oO0Oo Resident: Bye Multi.. :)
    Zen Arado: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eREuZEdMAVo
    Eliza Madrigal: for myself think it is better to prepare the ground for a long time then make a kind of lifetime shift
    Zen Arado: that is a pretty unbiased view I think
    Zen Arado: or try it and see
    oO0Oo Resident: diets can be a way of trying to paint ourselves
    Zen Arado: but we have to choose
    Eliza Madrigal: nods, and try things
    Zen Arado: I tend to challenge conventional views I guess
    Zen Arado: rebel Zen :)
    Zen Arado: yeh sticking is hardest
    Zen Arado: and our culture is always pushing sugary foods on us
    Eliza Madrigal: processing more a prob than sugar maybe
    Zen Arado: and easily digestible carbs that are easily turned into sugar
    Zen Arado: processing oftens adds carbs?
    Eliza Madrigal: imbalances
    Zen Arado: maybe I am too old for my body to change
    oO0Oo Resident: it will change without your help Zen
    Zen Arado: I notice I don't feel much hunger during the day now
    Korel Laloix: I just don't like sweet stuff.
    oO0Oo Resident: maybe not as you wish
    Korel Laloix: I can only handly honey when on something savory like frybread.
    Zen Arado: oh I know Sam :(
    Korel Laloix: Can't do candybars at all.
    oO0Oo Resident: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: mmmm
    Eliza Madrigal: honey should go on everything...
    oO0Oo Resident: hahaha
    Korel Laloix: Chocolate that is over 60% I like though.
    Eliza Madrigal: wonder what it takes like on brussell sprouts...haha
    Korel Laloix: oh ick
    druth Vlodovic: catch you later
    Eliza Madrigal giggles
    Korel Laloix: Hvae to get some work done.
