    Multiverse1 Resident: was it then a wave, rather than a point?
    Storm Nordwind: Pema encouraged it at the start of PaB

    Seeing colors.

    Multiverse1 Resident: todays color is red, then?
    Alfred Kelberry: i like it how notion of color has no sense on the nano scale
    Multiverse1 Resident: blurs out up close
    Alfred Kelberry: also, it's quite possible that we see colors differently
    Multiverse1 Resident: like a dog/ boxy?
    Alfred Kelberry: what is presented by the brain
    Multiverse1 Resident: or bumblebee
    Alfred Kelberry: like anyone
    Multiverse1 Resident: yep, one of the hardest things to describe
    Xirana Oximoxi: I must go now...have a nice day all!! :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: bye xirana
    Multiverse1 Resident: ye Xirana
    Alfred Kelberry: what we know as red may not be seen the same color by everyone
    Riddle Sideways: by Xir
    Multiverse1 Resident: cones and what is the other thing?
    Riddle Sideways: and how each relates to a red differs too
    Multiverse1 Resident: receptors, both
    Alfred Kelberry: mult, no the mechanics, but perception of color
    Multiverse1 Resident: the feel, and taste then
    Multiverse1 Resident: texture
    Alfred Kelberry: yes
    Multiverse1 Resident: thus, the shades of red?
    Alfred Kelberry: er...
    Multiverse1 Resident: arf

    Hearing colors.

    Storm Nordwind: It was interesting to hear colors, as a child.
    Alfred Kelberry: hear colors?
    Multiverse1 Resident: here, are colors
    Storm Nordwind: Yes. Even today, traffic lights sing to me ;)
    oO0Oo Resident: back :)

    Calm in the storm.

    Alfred Kelberry: *ponders storm's name and violence/anger associated with the word*
    Alfred Kelberry: how's that, storm?
    Storm Nordwind: You need my full name to understand that Alfred
    Multiverse1 Resident: hiya, ooOoo,
    Alfred Kelberry: sam :)
    oO0Oo Resident: @ Multi (rods?)
    Multiverse1 Resident: that's it
    Multiverse1 Resident: perceptors
    Storm Nordwind: My name is Stormerne, where erne is old word for the eagle. The eagles of northern Europe fly unperturbed in a storm, as though it were calm.
    Multiverse1 Resident: translations from color to sound even
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Alfred Kelberry: you like to think of yourself as such an eagle?


    Storm Nordwind: Anyway, when I was young I was profoundly synesthesic - and still am to a small extent
    Storm Nordwind: But I just thought everyone was like that!
    Alfred Kelberry: correct :)
    Multiverse1 Resident: but each, adifferent shade of color and sound
    Storm Nordwind: And the American bald eagle is an erne :)
    Alfred Kelberry: can you tell how do you associate colors with sound?
    Multiverse1 Resident: color coding the keyboard?
    oO0Oo Resident: brb
    Riddle Sideways: the blues has a certain musical structure of 12 bars :)
    Storm Nordwind: I am not a neuroscientist. I have no credible explanation for how it worked. But at the time I didn't need one. It made for a very rich childhood!
    Multiverse1 Resident: I have often vrought this up. If when a child you are told something is blue, over and over, for years and years. Then everyone tells you No! It is red. Then what color would that be?
    Storm Nordwind: It would make no difference unless you were hung up on labels
    Multiverse1 Resident: nice answer. It is colorful, either way!
    Storm Nordwind: I go to France and I have to learn a new label with only a slightly different spelling (bleu). The experience remains the same.
    Alfred Kelberry: interesting
    Multiverse1 Resident: but the light reflects it in a different manner
    Alfred Kelberry: re: color sound

    Funny guy.

    Alfred Kelberry: you're a funny guy, storm :)
    Storm Nordwind: Alfred, I merely give myself permission to be funny. Other people can do the same to themselves, if they wish to take the risk. :)
    Alfred Kelberry: that was a compliment :)
    Storm Nordwind: I took it as such. :)
    Storm Nordwind: Thus everyone can give themselves permission to be Boxy-compliment-worthy! :))
    Riddle Sideways: well, must be going.
    Alfred Kelberry: yes
    Multiverse1 Resident: bye riddle
    Alfred Kelberry: cuteelephant!
    Storm Nordwind: Good to see you Riddle
    Alfred Kelberry: agreed


    oO0Oo Resident: :) back
    Multiverse1 Resident: forth
    Multiverse1 Resident: the pendulum swings
    Storm Nordwind: Only because it has a point of stillness
    oO0Oo Resident waves and smiles at passing Riddle :)
    Multiverse1 Resident: was reading about Foulk? pendulum the other day. It "proves" the Erth revolves
    Multiverse1 Resident: was wondering if the galaxy has a fulcrum point
    Multiverse1 Resident: here it is
    Multiverse1 Resident: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foucault_pendulum

    Blog update.

    Storm Nordwind: By the way, thank you Alfred [actually Yakuuza] for mentioning that old blog. I decided to update the profile and put in a new entry while we were speaking. Don't know why, but it seemed important. :)

    Recipe for happiness
    Be kind.
    Put others before self - constantly.
    Have compassion for all - constantly.
    And when constantly is hard - as much as you can, more and more.

    ~ Lokeshvara

    I don't think the world is round.

    Multiverse1 Resident: don't want to misname someones discovery
    Storm Nordwind: Is that the pendulum we did science experiments with at school - hanging a very long one from the top of a stairwell with a pen attached to the weight?
    Storm Nordwind: Yes, looking tha article, apparently it is
    Multiverse1 Resident: have to devise one of these, for a larger scale
    Multiverse1 Resident: he also invented the 1st gyroscope
    Multiverse1 Resident: there is an exhibit, at the science cafe, or close to it
    Multiverse1 Resident: hi Korel
    oO0Oo Resident: Hi Korel !
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey korel
    Storm Nordwind: If we put such a pendulum in Second Life, it would have to rotate on a four hour cycle
    oO0Oo Resident: OsiyosiyosiyosiyOsiyo!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: but i don´t think the 2nd life world is round
    Korel Laloix: Heya
    Yakuzza Lethecus: and neither rotates
    Multiverse1 Resident: wind light cycles?
    Storm Nordwind: Hi Korel!
    Multiverse1 Resident: how is the anatomy this day, Korel?

    Multiverse1 Resident: Storm of Seas, I aim to please
    Multiverse1 Resident: turbulance, I'm on my knees
    Multiverse1 Resident: Creator of the world you are,
    Multiverse1 Resident: Your own it seems, It's in your dreams.
    Multiverse1 Resident: Vast it is the Sea of Night
    Yakuzza Lethecus: bye everyone

    Multiverse1 Resident: well have to eat food now
    Korel Laloix: I am always cold.
    Multiverse1 Resident: finish it another tyme
    Multiverse1 Resident: be well all.
    oO0Oo Resident wraps a warm blanket round Korel :)
    Korel Laloix: Back in a bit maybe
    Storm Nordwind: Bye!
    Korel Laloix: Two please.
    oO0Oo Resident: Bye Multi.. :) Korel.. two for sure
    Korel Laloix smiles
    Alfred Kelberry: hi :)

    Sam's poem.

    oO0Oo Resident: .

    still points
    the gyroscopic eagle centers

    warm and downy closeup
    playing host in tempest

    lightness and ease
    atmosphere of focused precision

    formational aero ..dynamic

    tenderness.. arriving
    wave upon wave
    invitation opens

    lost lines recover
    the > CRACKING < sounds
    of dignified flags

    no time to loose
    unfurling yielding

    Spring shoots emerge
    as water passing riverstones

    In places

    the rootlets seeking

    smiles served in increments
    neither this nor that

    to be happy

    Storm Nordwind: That is beautiful. Did you just write that?
    oO0Oo Resident: Yes. thanks Storm
    oO0Oo Resident: You inspired me
    Storm Nordwind: I am deeply honored and grateful for your creative presence.
    oO0Oo Resident: likewise *
    Storm Nordwind: What a space we hold together where art and wisdom both flourish!
    oO0Oo Resident: :)


    oO0Oo Resident: Well.. I need to meet someone, so will say goodbye for now. Thanks Storm, Boxy :)
    oO0Oo Resident: :)
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Storm Nordwind: Good to see you both!
    oO0Oo Resident: :))))
