    Riddle Sideways: speed bumps
    Eliza Madrigal: mmm
    Riddle Sideways: all in the size you look at it
    Riddle Sideways: walls could be just bumps

    oO0Oo Resident: with that in mind
    Multiverse1 Resident: detours

    oO0Oo Resident: I have a video I would like to share with you all
    Riddle Sideways: ty
    Riddle Sideways: love your vids
    Yakuzza Lethecus: looks forward to it

    oO0Oo Resident: Can't explain it just watch.. http://is.gd/Hqp1KD
    Yakuzza Lethecus: thx
    Eliza Madrigal: ok :)
    Multiverse1 Resident: ok

         Please pause and go watch the vid.

    Riddle Sideways: just needs somebody to care
    Riddle Sideways: augmented reality
    Riddle Sideways: soon an app, near you
    Multiverse1 Resident: The things we never know
    Eliza Madrigal: nice, shifted to a different level
    Eliza Madrigal: hah, empathy app? :))
    Riddle Sideways: things we overlook
    Riddle Sideways: thank you, Sam
    Multiverse1 Resident: Thanx, Samuo
    oO0Oo Resident: ty for watching :)
    Multiverse1 Resident: Thanks for sharing that

    Yakuzza Lethecus: if it would just be as clear to know who demands which type of care and to know how to deliver exactly the fitting type of care
    Yakuzza Lethecus: need those glasses
    oO0Oo Resident: true compassion.. yes
    Multiverse1 Resident: with a little effort, at times, we can understand being at least, beside the shoes of others
    Riddle Sideways: empathy

    Eliza Madrigal: appreciated the empathy study that suggested that underneath we can sense when others are open or closed, and in that way, just being open in the world is some portion of enough

    Multiverse1 Resident: At times we get visual and other clues
    Riddle Sideways: ah, "some portion of enough"
          Please to excuse, but even on the third reading of that phrase the commentator is chocked up.
         "is some portion of enough"
            Note to Boxy and Adamms, please include "world is some portion of enough" in your works.
         What could it mean "the world is some portion of enough" ?
         The desire to be thought of as "just being", "open", "in the world is some portion of enough" would be epitaph.

    Multiverse1 Resident: If we can step aside from our own worries and troubles
    Eliza Madrigal: step out of obsessing over them anyway
    Multiverse1 Resident: the detours can be the actual chosen path
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Riddle Sideways: who knows
    Multiverse1 Resident: the glasses?
    Multiverse1 Resident: a fitting asimile
    Riddle Sideways: corrective lens
    Multiverse1 Resident: yes
    Multiverse1 Resident: a refocus of vision
    Multiverse1 Resident: For all the troubles we have, are just little bumps to be circumnavigated
    Riddle Sideways: making walls out of speed bumps
    Multiverse1 Resident: an ants view, yet they are very diligent in their tasks
    Eliza Madrigal: troubles are also points of connection, so some doorway there
    Multiverse1 Resident: yes, empathy
    Eliza Madrigal: so maybe going into and stepping out of same in some way
    Riddle Sideways: use whatever metaphor needed/available to get to empathy/compassion
    Riddle Sideways: Hi Arch
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Arch :)
    Riddle Sideways: gtsy
    Multiverse1 Resident: Hello Arch
    oO0Oo Resident: Hi Arch

    Riddle Sideways: were just off in a 90-sec before the 90-sec bell
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey arch
    Riddle Sideways: we all watched: Can't explain it just watch.. http://is.gd/Hqp1KD
    Archmage Atlantis: Helllo Eliza, Yaku, Riddle, Samúð
    Riddle Sideways: now trying hard not to watch the related vids
    Riddle Sideways: like "this is why I vote republican"
    Riddle Sideways: and "ocd girl"

    Archmage Atlantis: It takes along time to get Sam's name spelled correctly
    Multiverse1 Resident: Was thinking of the cat in your face, riddle. Sometimes we can be easily distrated.
    Multiverse1 Resident: distracted
    Multiverse1 Resident: like in the video, caught up in the momment
    oO0Oo Resident: '0' works pretty well Arch :)
    Riddle Sideways: A.D.D. adult distraction disorde ... is that a cat in your face?
    Multiverse1 Resident: and Koya, on Arch
    Riddle Sideways: and sometimes need to be distracted
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Riddle Sideways: maybe see what should be seen
    Eliza Madrigal: 'what should be seen' hm :)
    Multiverse1 Resident: yes, another outlook
    Eliza Madrigal: thanks Riddle and everyone... appreciate the session and also must go :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: have a good day eliza
    Riddle Sideways: thanks and bye, Eliza
    Multiverse1 Resident: Bye Eliza

    Archmage Atlantis: it is, to me, about learning to be kin in a world that does not appreciate kindness
    Eliza Madrigal: bye for now, thank you
    Multiverse1 Resident: Nice boots!
    oO0Oo Resident: Bye Eliza. gtsy :)

    Multiverse1 Resident: the world? or parts of it?
    Archmage Atlantis: Learning to believe in a greater purpose
    Archmage Atlantis: We may not know wat it is
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i don´t know what is
    Archmage Atlantis: We may disagree on the how and what of it
    Multiverse1 Resident: The video, shows such appreciation
    Archmage Atlantis: But, we who are here, we still believe
    Multiverse1 Resident: that others in this world share, as Samuo showed us through it.

    Riddle Sideways: the trucker might 'need' a hug, but might not take one from stranger
    Multiverse1 Resident: good point , Riddle
    Archmage Atlantis: blessings and namaste
    Yakuzza Lethecus: bye arch
    Riddle Sideways: bye arch
    Multiverse1 Resident: Namaste
    oO0Oo Resident: Bye Arch

    Riddle Sideways: these quotes from past sessions are a little like the glasses
    Multiverse1 Resident: so then, should we befriend the " trucker" sometimes, he may accept our hug. Then both of us may be fullfilled
    Riddle Sideways: a quick look through
    Multiverse1 Resident: I have written down and gone back to some of the quoted sessions, very pleasing in some instances,
    Multiverse1 Resident: The brackets can be searched in the wiki, to find them
    Riddle Sideways: hehehe, have about 5 of them right now
    Multiverse1 Resident: Feel I will buy someone a coffee, or such this day. Reach out, as I feel the opportunity shall present itself. A random act of kindness, only a planned random act planted in my tiny little brain.

    Riddle Sideways: guessing that empathy and/or compassion does not directly mean actionable redirection
    Riddle Sideways: not all the things he saw needed him to act on
    oO0Oo Resident: :)
    Riddle Sideways: but, the kid was one he could do
    Multiverse1 Resident: no, but he chose his victim
    Multiverse1 Resident: like the trucker may have pushed him aside, being in his own state of distration.
    Multiverse1 Resident: c

    Yakuzza Lethecus: without the glasses the child could have easily repllied, "wtf are you talking to me?" and tell his friends about the bugger, good intentions and even actions are not neccessarlily persieved even as such
    Yakuzza Lethecus: *percieved
    Riddle Sideways: yep
    Multiverse1 Resident: yes, but sometimes we know, or can attempt such actions
    Multiverse1 Resident: is there loss if we fail?
    Riddle Sideways: that act of kindness can be taken by any way
    Riddle Sideways: should not stop the act
    Riddle Sideways: but it does
    Riddle Sideways: hmmmmm
    Multiverse1 Resident: I have experienced this many times, both good and bad. I still will venture forth in this way. I do quite often.
    Riddle Sideways: and have done random acts of kindness, then left the scene so as not to know the results
    Riddle Sideways: not doing them for results
    Multiverse1 Resident: yes, many times I am gazed upon strangley. Or many are wondering as to my motives
    Multiverse1 Resident: the results then are of no consequence , I agree.
    Multiverse1 Resident: The hug, can be merely a smile at times.
    Riddle Sideways: yes
    Riddle Sideways: and holding a door open for somebody else
    Riddle Sideways: can be a sexist thing
    Riddle Sideways: or an act of kindness
    Riddle Sideways: or a bridge
    Riddle Sideways: or
    Riddle Sideways: or
    Riddle Sideways: or
    Riddle Sideways: why not hold the dorr
    Riddle Sideways: *door anyway
    Multiverse1 Resident: the view of the receiver, becomes the unknown
    Multiverse1 Resident: an attempt
    Riddle Sideways: can not force the receiver
    Riddle Sideways: to see my way
    Multiverse1 Resident: nor should we try, since we do not possess the magic glasses
    Riddle Sideways: need to go jump the neighbors car
    Yakuzza Lethecus: have a good day everyone
    oO0Oo Resident: :) thanks everyone :)
    Multiverse1 Resident: Yes , Riddle , Sam , and Yaku, enjoy the day!
    Riddle Sideways: thanks all
