    The Guardian for this meeting was Pema Pera. The comments are by Pema Pera.

    Tess Aristocrat: Hi :)
    Lucinda Lavender: hi sam
    Pema Pera: hi everybody!
    Lucinda Lavender: HI Pema
    Lucinda Lavender: :)
    Lucinda Lavender: HI San
    Lucinda Lavender: :)
    Lucinda Lavender: brb...
    Santoshima Resident: Hi Luci,Tess, Pema, Sam
    Pema Pera: I've been wondering whether it would be fun to write children's stories about "Playing as Being" . . . .
    Pema Pera: also aimed at adults, like Alice in Wonderland, etc
    Pema Pera: or the little prince
    oO0Oo Resident: That sounds both playful and fun
    Pema Pera: the main character falling through trapdoors into other ways of experiencing the reality around her
    oO0Oo Resident: :)
    Pema Pera: like 9-sec escape mechanisms in space and time
    Lucinda Lavender: nods
    Pema Pera: perhaps we can come up with a sketch right here?
    Pema Pera: "dream one up"?
    Lucinda Lavender: :)
    Pema Pera said, inspired by Luci's presence
    Lucinda Lavender: :)
    oO0Oo Resident: at first she thought it might be a cult, but then ended up seeing her own mind
    Pema Pera: hahaha
    Lucinda Lavender: thinkling about the trip I was just on in Tess's landscape...a canoe trip though mountains and such
    Pema Pera: and then she realized that the grownup society is one big cult . . . .
    Pema Pera: a magic canoe . . .
    oO0Oo Resident: :)
    Lucinda Lavender: :))
    Pema Pera: running the rapids of space and time
    Lucinda Lavender: going under over around and through
    Pema Pera: from the canoe you can see the same situation simultaneously from many angles
    Lucinda Lavender: breathing as she goes
    Tess Aristocrat: :)
    Lucinda Lavender: looking both out to sea and inland
    Pema Pera: most stories involve a spell started by clicking your heals or clapping your hands -- here it starts by just being still for nine seconds . . . .
    Tess Aristocrat: steering into a cool cave
    Pema Pera: and finding that it opens up into another world
    Lucinda Lavender: yes
    Pema Pera: and finding oneself transformed, too, in the other world
    Pema Pera: traveling in selves as well as worlds
    Tess Aristocrat: yes
    Pema Pera: making friends with one's selves
    Lucinda Lavender: floating lightly along
    Pema Pera: like with avatars in SL
    oO0Oo Resident:

         Come ride with us in the magic canoe,
         eventually we will drop that too

         But, for now different angles to see.
         Breathing and letting things be.

         Watching our paddle, and choosing a shore.
         Oh my, Dorothy. We're not in Kansas.. anymore.

    Pema Pera: clap clap clap !!!!
    Lucinda Lavender: :))
    Lucinda Lavender: hooray!
    oO0Oo Resident: :)
    Tess Aristocrat: :D
    Pema Pera looking for flying monkeys
    Lucinda Lavender: and the guy behind the curtian
    Pema Pera: oh yes, a central character
    Lucinda Lavender: fools us all
    Pema Pera: including himself
    Lucinda Lavender: but not in the end
    oO0Oo Resident: central.. but multiple
    Pema Pera: yes
    Lucinda Lavender: so fun to explor together
    Pema Pera nods!
    Lucinda Lavender: build our landscapes
    Pema Pera: the character behind curtains made of space and time . . . .
    Lucinda Lavender: ah...
    Pema Pera: each curtain opens on a new space
    Pema Pera: with a new rhythm of time
    Pema Pera: as an invitation to get familiar with a larger Space allowing all particular spaces
    Pema Pera: the way each space allows the presence of its objects
    Tess Aristocrat: yes, so crack the coconut and slice the lime :)
    Pema Pera: :-)
    Pema Pera: finer and finer and finer
    Pema Pera: until a diamantine time dust is all that is left
    Tess Aristocrat: Closer to fine :)
    Lucinda Lavender: :)
    Pema Pera: refining time . . . .
    Pema Pera: and so the main character discovered that space is full of holes . . . . letting time shine through in various ways
    Pema Pera: but when she came back to Kansas, she had a tough time explaining what she had experienced
    Pema Pera: because people kept asking about "things"
    Pema Pera: and she only could talk about space and time . . . .
    Lucinda Lavender: Luci is wondering what we find dropping down the first hole....an experience...rather than things
    Pema Pera: yes, dropping things is what the first dropping may be all about . . . .
    Pema Pera: including that odd thing called self/ego
    Lucinda Lavender: being together with space and time
    Pema Pera: and then beginning to see in startling glimpses that this may even imply . . .
    Pema Pera: being space and time
    Lucinda Lavender: perhaps there could be something about placement as she lands at a first place...
    Pema Pera: yes, placement and presence
    oO0Oo Resident: a mirror?
    Pema Pera: nice!
    oO0Oo Resident:

         space time
         sdɐɔǝ ʇıɯǝ

    Pema Pera: hahaha
    Pema Pera: Sam the magician
    oO0Oo Resident: ǝɔıdıɔǝɹd ˙˙sbuıɥʇ ˙˙spɹoʍ
    Pema Pera: tumbling down those precipes in time . . . .
    Pema Pera like the rabbit in Alice in Wonderland is looking at his watch . . . and realizing that once again he has to catch a train (from Kyoto to Tokyo this time) . . . . reluctantly gets up and out . . . .
    Lucinda Lavender: happy travels Pema:)
    oO0Oo Resident: bullet canoe :)
    Multiverse1 Resident: watch the clock, Pema
    Lucinda Lavender: :)
    Tess Aristocrat: bye Pema
    Pema Pera: thank you, all
    Pema Pera: hahaha
    oO0Oo Resident: :) be well
    Pema Pera: through many tunnels of time . . . .
    Pema Pera: bfn
    Lucinda Lavender: bfn
    Tess Aristocrat: like sands in the hourglass..
    Multiverse1 Resident: each a small pebble
    Multiverse1 Resident: only to turn it over and begin again
    Tess Aristocrat: beginning anew
    oO0Oo Resident: funny thought of us as grains in an hourglass, and mingling and flowing.. settling.. then when the glass is turned.. that is reincarnation ;)
    Lucinda Lavender: ah ha
    Multiverse1 Resident: an endless cycle
    Tess Aristocrat: and what are your thoughts on reincarnation?
    oO0Oo Resident: not something i have thought too much about, and can't remember having alot of experience with it... [personally]
    Multiverse1 Resident: why do you call this reincarnation, is this not carnation.
    Multiverse1 Resident: or incarnation
    oO0Oo Resident: that smells nice
    Tess Aristocrat: well, tarnation..
    Multiverse1 Resident: one life has many cycles
    oO0Oo Resident: lots of cycles
    Tess Aristocrat: and epiphanys
    oO0Oo Resident: colours and dreams
    Multiverse1 Resident: do we then break it down into years, or lives?
    Lucinda Lavender: Luci thinks of timelines...that kind ov overlap
    Multiverse1 Resident: white and black
    Tess Aristocrat: years..
    Multiverse1 Resident: all and no colors
    Tess Aristocrat: lots of color
    Lucinda Lavender: one for the body...
    Multiverse1 Resident: yes, everything inbetween
    Multiverse1 Resident: and lavender is but many of one
    Tess Aristocrat: lots of knowing and lots more unknowing
    Multiverse1 Resident: This day for me, I have pondered "unenlightenment"
    Tess Aristocrat: lots of wonderment
    oO0Oo Resident: analog waterfall of uniqueness
    Lucinda Lavender: can you say more multi
    Multiverse1 Resident: and once enlightenment were achieved, what would be next
    Multiverse1 Resident: just like turning the hourglass
    oO0Oo Resident: wait for the gods to ask you to turn the wheel?
    oO0Oo Resident: deliberate a while
    oO0Oo Resident: decide if you will teach?
    Tess Aristocrat: perhaps there wouldn't be a need to wonder what would be next
    Multiverse1 Resident: to live your tyme in reverse, or as Samuo wrote, uopside down
    Tess Aristocrat: only what is now
    Multiverse1 Resident: no, we would wonder
    oO0Oo Resident: interesting Tess
    Multiverse1 Resident: what would be the next now
