    That night in Rieul, I could only stay a few minutes, so I had asked Fael and Moon to stand in for me instead. Little did I know what burst of creative inspiration would hit them … as you will see in the log for the next session, six hours later. The remainder of this transcript is Moon speaking, and the title is his as well.

    Getting a Email in the morning that Pema asked me to take over his 1 am session.
    So i just arrived seeing Fael waiting at the Teahouse.

    Fael Illyar: Hello Moon :)
    Moon Fargis: hi fael
    Moon Fargis: i might need your scipthing help fael
    Fael Illyar: What are you making?
    Moon Fargis: but first i have to prepare things for it… i made a gesture and i want to add some timed particle effects to it
    Moon Fargis: so first i have to create the playscript and the particles but i dont know how i can join them timed together

    Pema showed up

    Moon Fargis: hi pema.
    Fael Illyar: Hello Pema
    Pema Pera: Hi There
    Moon Fargis: got my im ?
    Pema Pera: Thank you both for coming here
    Pema Pera: I have to leave in five minutes
    Moon Fargis: ok
    Pema Pera: but I’m glad to see you both here
    Fael Illyar: Yes, I did get the IM :)
    Pema Pera: Moon, got your IM
    Pema Pera: clicked the link
    Pema Pera: and then my IM forwarding was TURNED OFF
    Pema Pera: ???
    Moon Fargis: ? what link ?
    Pema Pera: was that not you?
    Moon Fargis: no sorry didnt send you a link
    Pema Pera: [0:58] Moon Fargis: (Saved Sat Jun 7 16:39:02 2008) Guten Tag, sure, no prob. http://secondlife.com/account/im_off...z2lkvdzaomzrdr MfG,
    Moon Fargis: huh
    Fael Illyar: there is a checkbox in the preferences, in the communication tab. “Send IM to Email”
    Moon Fargis: where comes that from
    Pema Pera: I clicked on it, and now my forwarding is off
    Moon Fargis: could it be that it was automaticly added from sl ? because i awnswered with a email to your im ?
    Pema Pera: yes, that is stil on
    Pema Pera: That is all very strange
    Pema Pera: let me get off, and you both send me an LM please
    Pema Pera: to check
    Pema Pera: after I disappear
    Fael Illyar: you’ll probably have to log in to the website and see if you can re-enable it from there
    Moon Fargis: an im you mean ?

    Pema went offline and we wrote him a IM

    Fael Illyar: well, IM sent
    Moon Fargis: here too
    Moon Fargis: ahh i see
    Fael Illyar: I guess I’ll check the website.
    Moon Fargis: this link is automaticly created
    Moon Fargis: i see it in my email wich came from pema
    Fael Illyar: Yes, that looked like automatically generated link that will disable IMs to email
    Faenik: ah :)
    Fael Illyar: I wonder where that is hidden in the account page
    Fael Illyar: Ah, Contact Info section, of course
    Fael Illyar: you can set your email there and there is a checkbox on whether you want IMs to the email
    Moon Fargis: yes
    Moon Fargis: thats what i got from pema as email:
    Moon Fargis:

    To stop receiving these emails, log in to Second Life and uncheck “Send IM to Email” in the General tab of the Preferences window or visit:
    Faenik: ????^^
    Moon Fargis: reply to this message seems to make this url not quoted with an >
    Fael Illyar: Yes, I guess that link is such that if anyone opens it, IMs to email will be turned off
    Moon Fargis: hmm
    Moon Fargis: i dont think pema will come back :9
    Fael Illyar: well, he did say he has to go in 5 minutes and it’s already 10 :)
    Moon Fargis: yep
    Moon Fargis: normally this time 1 AM is a verry quiet one
    Fael Illyar: Yes, I think the logs I’ve read of this time have been quite short usually.
    Fael Illyar: It’s the first time I’ve been able to make it to this one :)
    Moon Fargis: enjoy the silence:)
    Fael Illyar: Not all that silent here ;)
    Fael Illyar: Well, except that I guess we’ll probably not get too many interruptions :)
    Moon Fargis: :)
    Moon Fargis: is there maybe something you got more intrested in about buddhism now?
    Moon Fargis: becasue of pab ?
    Fael Illyar: I guess my interest has been going up, yes.
    Moon Fargis: :) great dont hesitaste to ask if something is unclear
    Fael Illyar: I’ve read a few stories from a website Titled “Zen Stories to Tell Your Neighbors”
    Moon Fargis: hehe nice title
    Fael Illyar: http://www-usr.rider.edu/~suler/zenstory/zenstory.html
    Moon Fargis: wow alot to read thanks :)
    Fael Illyar: :)
    Moon Fargis: did you tryd to do longer meditations now ?
    Fael Illyar: I’ve been doing one every morning since I mentioned about it
    Faenik: could be
    Moon Fargis: ahyes right
    Fael Illyar: the day before yesterday I meditated in the morning and experimented a bit doing it with my eyes open.
    Moon Fargis: ah thats good, did you noticed something ?
    Fael Illyar: Well, other than that it does make it slightly more difficult, not much. Although, after I stopped, I got this idea of trying to see how long I could keep the mental state and then ended up meditating based on whether I thought it was necessary instead of every 15 minutes.
    Moon Fargis: ah
    Fael Illyar: I think I’ve had a permanent feeling change after that in … well mental state is the best word I can think of
    Moon Fargis: yes meditations increases your awareness often .. .wich doesnt mean you are much aware in rl that is another thing wich is just indirectly connected with it
    Moon Fargis: when i speak from awareness i mostly mean the inner awareness
    Fael Illyar: Yes, probably good idea to keep those separate :)
    Faenik is a hairy black ball with eyes and ears.
    Fael Illyar: then yesterday I was at work and didn’t have my 15 minute alarms with me so I had to meditate when I noticed it’s necessary
    Fael Illyar: When I returned and got taken unaware with the alarm (I’ve kind of conditioned myself to nearly automatically do it on them already, sort of worrying though), I noticed that I did manage to deepen the state a bit with it.
    Fael Illyar: So I’m now doing them timed again.
    Moon Fargis: well sounds intrestig really, i think as more you do them timed, as easier it will be for you to do it without a timer
    Moon Fargis: btw what timer do you use?
    Fael Illyar: cron ;)
    Moon Fargis: ah
    Moon Fargis: so it beeps every 15 min ?
    Fael Illyar: yes, I wrote a script to play a sound file and cron launches that every 15 minutes (well, I added exceptions so it won’t run it when I’m sleeping)
    Moon Fargis: cool
    Moon Fargis: hehe
    Moon Fargis: what soundfile?
    Fael Illyar: I was lazy so I tested it with a soundfile where someone says そうですよ (soudesuyo) at first to test it but then didn’t get around to changing it.
    Moon Fargis: shall i send you the bellsound?:)
    Fael Illyar: Yes, I’d appreciate that :)
    Moon Fargis: lets see it have to be somewhere on the deepest space of my harddrive
    Moon Fargis: a found it.. that was fast
    Moon Fargis: where shall i send it to ?
    Faenik: why not?
    Faenik loves wells!
    Moon Fargis: ok sucessfully send
    Fael Illyar: Ah, got it, thank you :)
    Moon Fargis: np :)
