    Adams Rubble was the guardian and provided the comments which is mostly a record of comings and goings. There is some discussion between the hellos, intros and goodbuyes

    I arrived first and was soon joined by Geo

    Adams Rubble: Hello Geo :)
    Geo Netizen: Hi Adams
    Adams Rubble: How are you today?

    Storm joined us

    Geo Netizen: There is a blizzard here, I am inside and warm so I am great
    Geo Netizen: Waitin for my coffee to brew thought
    Geo Netizen: Hi Storm
    Adams Rubble: Wow
    Adams Rubble: Hello Storm :)
    Storm Nordwind: Hi!
    Storm Nordwind: I'm not staying. Very busy. But just to say the Cafe is open again, if you haven't read your email yet
    Geo Netizen: Yes, I saw the notice

    A newcomer then arrived...

    Geo Netizen: Haven't had a chance to check it out yet
    Adams Rubble: Yes. I have. I thought you might be here to make the fountain dispense Champaign for this afternoons session

    ..and then Fael

    Adams Rubble: Hello Fael :)
    Storm Nordwind: Hmmm...
    Geo Netizen laughs
    Adams Rubble: Hello Yumi :)
    Newcomer: Hello
    Geo Netizen: Hi Yumi, Fael
    Fael Illyar: Hi Adams, Geo, Yumi, Storm :)
    Adams Rubble: Is this your first time here Yumi?
    Newcomer: Do You speak French?
    Adams Rubble: No, sorry
    Newcomer: ok
    Fael Illyar doesn't speak French either, sorry.
    Storm Nordwind: Je parle Francais seulement un peu, mes excuses
    Geo Netizen: Do you have a translator?
    Geo's translator: Avez-vous un traducteur?
    Fael Illyar only speaks Finnish, English and Japanese.

    Yumi crashed and so left us briefly

    Adams Rubble: Whoops
    Storm Nordwind: Et voila!
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Faenik: なるほど^^
    Newcomer: Probleme
    Adams Rubble: wb Yumi
    Newcomer: ^^
    Storm Nordwind: Bienvenue encore
    Newcomer: merci
    Storm Nordwind: Desole, mais on parle Anglais tout les temps ici Yumi
    Adams Rubble: I have given you a notecard with an introduction to our group Yumi
    Newcomer: No problem
    Newcomer: ^^
    Newcomer accepted your inventory offer.
    Faenik: ah :)

    Fael began the thread

    Fael Illyar: I realized today that the reason it's more difficult to accept things in people we're closer to is that it gets easier and easier to imagine you know the person as you get closer.
    Newcomer: Bye bye
    Newcomer: ^^
    Fael Illyar: When, what really happens is that you just build an image, like your own self-image of the other person.
    Adams Rubble: Newcomer, we record our conversations. Do you have a problem with that?
    Adams Rubble: Yes Fael, that is part of it
    Adams Rubble: I have also found thatmy own expectations get in the way of my seeing clearly

    The newcomer diasppeared and Wol arrived. Wol's head and shoulders were the only part visible on top of the cushion

    Fael Illyar: Hi Wol :)
    Adams Rubble: Hello Wol :)
    Geo Netizen: Hi Wol
    Wol Euler: hello adams, geo, fael, storm
    Geo Netizen: Wol seems to be a bit low :)
    Wol Euler: ah, how true.
    Storm Nordwind: We welcome low-down bums to this meeting too ;)
    Wol Euler: hehehehe
    Fael Illyar: Like Crusty has been emphasizing lately, we know nothing. All we have is guesses, which, granted, can quite likely be right.
    Wol Euler waves her bottle and drools
    Geo Netizen: I think we can make a whole list of why it can be difficult
    Fael Illyar: umm... bums?

    Crusty was next....

    Storm Nordwind: It's a pun Fael
    Adams Rubble: Hello Crusty :)
    Wol Euler: hi crusty
    Geo Netizen: Hi Crusty
    Crusty Goldshark: hi guys
    Fael Illyar: Hi Crusty :)
    Storm Nordwind is going to continue scripting in the Cafe. Please excuse :)
    Wol Euler: bye storm
    Storm Nordwind: Namaste
    Adams Rubble: bye Storm :)
    Geo Netizen: Bye Storm

    Storm left...

    Fael Illyar: perhaps I was too hasty in starting to talk :)
    Fael Illyar: [7:08] Fael Illyar: I realized today that the reason it's more difficult to accept things in people we're closer to is that it gets easier and easier to imagine you know the person as you get closer.
    Fael Illyar: [7:09] Fael Illyar: When, what really happens is that you just build an image, like your own self-image of the other person.
    Adams Rubble: No, Fael, it is a good topic if you would like to talk about it
    Fael Illyar: [7:12] Fael Illyar: Like Crusty has been emphasizing lately, we know nothing. All we have is guesses, which, granted, can quite likely be right.
    Fael Illyar: I just mean hasty as in, people were still incoming :)
    Adams Rubble: ah
    Geo Netizen: Another reason it can be difficult is that people we are close to we usually have know for a while and we may have accepted something that has now changed with the person and we need to change our acceptance
    Fael Illyar: Geo, isn't that basically that the image we have suddenly no longer matches and thus we can't accept?
    Adams Rubble: yes Geo
    Faenik: indeed?
    Geo Netizen: Could be just a better understanding, yes
    Crusty Goldshark: Personally I find it difficult to accept flaws in myself or those around me - but that is a flaw . . .
    Geo Netizen: or the person may have changed
    Geo Netizen: in either case it can be difficult
    Adams Rubble: Not everything goes out the window becauseof some changes
    Geo Netizen: since we may have become comforatable with out acceptance
    Geo Netizen smiles at Crusty

    Prashant Joined us here

    Geo Netizen: Hi Prashant
    Crusty Goldshark: People are complex and at first on their best behaviour, character emerges and we see different things . . .
    Fael Illyar: Hi Prashant :)
    Prashant Parkin: hi
    Prashant Parkin: hello
    Crusty Goldshark: Hi Prashant
    Prashant Parkin: so how r u guys
    Adams Rubble: Hello Prashant
    Wol Euler: the cushions are more comfortable than my shoulder, prashant.
    Geo Netizen chuckles
    Fael Illyar grins.
    Prashant Parkin: oh im so sorry
    Wol Euler: it happens
    Prashant Parkin: i didnt see it
    Fael Illyar: The water might be a bit cold :)
    Prashant Parkin accepted your inventory offer.
    Geo Netizen: perhaps you should wait till rez is finished :)
    Geo Netizen: We certainly understand rez issues
    Wol Euler nods
    Prashant Parkin: i guess the net connection is slow
    Wol Euler: that too happens :)
    Geo Netizen nods
    Adams Rubble: Yes and SL seems a bit slow today too
    Prashant Parkin: so wat r u guys doing here
    Crusty Goldshark: Waiting for Santa
    Adams Rubble: The card I gave you will explain some
    Prashant Parkin: ha ha ha
    Crusty Goldshark: Have you seen him?
    Geo Netizen nods towards Adams
    Adams Rubble: We are a group exploring the nature of reality
    Geo Netizen: Thanks
    Prashant Parkin: il just see it
    Crusty Goldshark: Something ironic about seeking reality in a simulation . . . No ?
    Adams Rubble: Fael, we are not always equipped to understand things in others
    Wol Euler: not really, no.
    Wol Euler: we are real.
    Crusty Goldshark: I'm not
    Adams Rubble: Sometimes we understand things years later :)
    Prashant Parkin: ok
    Adams Rubble: Crusty, you're such an anarchist :)
    Crusty Goldshark: :(
    Geo Netizen: The sim help emphasis appearance
    Fael Illyar: You know, we don't really understand ourselves, how could we understand others?
    Adams Rubble: well there is that too Fael
    Crusty Goldshark: Good point Fael
    Prashant Parkin: so u guys r from which country
    Fael Illyar: <-- Finland
    Crusty Goldshark: I am still to be convinced I am a self . . .
    Prashant Parkin: all
    Adams Rubble: Prashant, we record our convertsations here and post them on a Wiki. do you have any problem with that?
    Geo Netizen: <-- States
    Adams Rubble: US
    Prashant Parkin: not at all
    Fael Illyar: Crusty, I fail to see where I suggested you are :)
    Crusty Goldshark: I am in the UK but only in Real Life . . .
    Wol Euler: Germany here
    Prashant Parkin: im in india
    Adams Rubble: Great to have you with us Prashant :)
    Faenik: なるほど^^
    Prashant Parkin: hey wol my bro is in germany right noe
    Prashant Parkin: now
    Geo Netizen: And Crusty is the one to use the term *Real Life* !!
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Moon Fargis is Online
    Prashant Parkin: Wol my brother had just cald up from germany 5 mins back
    Wol Euler smiles
    Crusty Goldshark: So Prashant - any clues about reality?
    Prashant Parkin: wat clues?
    Crusty Goldshark: Is it real?
    Prashant Parkin: way is real?
    Prashant Parkin: wat is real
    Crusty Goldshark: Do you feel reality is real?
    Geo Netizen: Is Crusty just a figment of your imagination?
    Prashant Parkin: well it is complete imagination
    Crusty Goldshark: Exactly Geo - am a real or a projection?
    Prashant Parkin: reality is nothing but imagination in execution
    Geo Netizen: And if projection, projected from ??
    Wol Euler: you are a projection insofar as I make assumptions and inferences about you based on how you act
    Wol Euler: those are not "you"
    Crusty Goldshark: So you are seeing a little of me and a lot of yourself - perhaps?
    Wol Euler: or vice versa. Mixed in any case.
    Wol Euler: as are you when you look at us.
    Faenik: could be
    Geo Netizen: And if projection, projected from ??
    Crusty Goldshark: m m m. . . I wonder about the vice versa - I feel most of us project and assume much more than we know . . .
    Geo Netizen: Opppps
    Prashant Parkin: yes crusty its true
    Geo Netizen: to say our perception is flawed is to assume there is something real to perceive
    Crusty Goldshark: I feel there is more reality to be aware of when we drop the assumptions . . .
    Prashant Parkin: yes because we view reality according to our own perception
    Wol Euler: do you own a refrigerator?
    Prashant Parkin: who me?
    Wol Euler: Geo, actually, but it can be a general uestion :)
    Adams Rubble: I agree with Crusty's last statement
    Geo Netizen: I do not own a regriderator
    Adams Rubble: We can remove many of our assumptions if we try
    Geo Netizen: but that is a special case

    Another visitor came and went

    Geo Netizen: Our perceptions are certainly colored by us
    Crusty Goldshark: I think we can react 'as new' - we can treat each moment without past or future . . .
    Geo Netizen: One reason why this group is so useful
    Prashant Parkin: but we cant
    Geo Netizen: It can challenge those assumptions
    Prashant Parkin: because our minds cant think that way

    Solobill arrived

    Geo Netizen: Aren’t we all here to get a *reality* check on our assumptions?
    Geo Netizen: Hi Solo
    Wol Euler: hello solo
    Crusty Goldshark: We don't have to use our minds to be aware - thinking yes - aware no
    Adams Rubble: Hello Bill :)
    Fael Illyar: Hi Solo:)
    Solobill Laville: Hi, all [rezzing]
    Crusty Goldshark: Hi SoloBill
    Crusty Goldshark: what does rezzing mean?
    Crusty Goldshark: reading resumes?
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Wol Euler: waiting fo the world to resolve
    Crusty Goldshark: got it
    Wol Euler: (in this instance)
    Adams Rubble: thanks Wol
    Wol Euler: can also mean placing something from inventory onto the ground
    Adams Rubble: Wol, I am assuming by the refrigerator you were trying to point out the perception of cold?
    Geo Netizen is looking for sympathy on the reality of his local weather forecast:
    Snow and widespread blowing snow. The snow could be heavy at times. Temperature falling to around -14 by 5pm. Wind chill values as low as -45. Windy, with a north wind between 26 and 31 mph, with gusts as high as 44 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100%. Total snow accumulation of up to a foot is possible.
    Wol Euler: actually, I would like to withdraw that. I am in an argumentative mood and am trying to overcome it. The question was intended to open a line of attack that would be unhelpful.
    Faenik: indeed?
    Wol Euler: ooh, lucky geo!
    Adams Rubble: Geo seems to have enough cold for one person
    Fael Illyar: certainly more snow than here.
    Adams Rubble: You have my sympathy Geo
    Wol Euler: I can see snow on the hills but there is none in town
    Geo Netizen nods at the successful fishing expedition
    Fael Illyar: 10 days left to get this thing called white christmas everyone is so hung up on here :)
    Crusty Goldshark: Moods are hard Wol - sometimes they have to be allowed to pass without effecting others too . . .
    Crusty Goldshark: The Buddha advocated Noble Silence
    Geo Netizen agrees with the Buddha
    Faenik: ah :)
    Wol Euler is trying.
    Crusty Goldshark: Ha - I am often trying . . .
    Geo Netizen and wishes he followed that advice more often
    Fael Illyar: Yet, sometimes it's the right choice (however you define that) to allow others to help you with your mood.
    Crusty Goldshark: Depends how you work with moods - music changes mine
    Adams Rubble: yes, recongizing them is much of the battle

    Prashant needed to depart

    Prashant Parkin: hey people got to go
    Prashant Parkin: il see u guys later
    Crusty Goldshark: bye prashat - keep it real . . .
    Wol Euler: bye prashant, take care.
    Fael Illyar: Ok, see you later Prashant :)
    Prashant Parkin: bye :)
    Fael Illyar: (did he get an introduction by the way?)
    Geo Netizen: The effects of music and the **very** long history of it would be a good topic on its own
    Adams Rubble: yes
    Adams Rubble: Bye Prashant, nice to meet you :)
    Geo Netizen: Bye Preshant
    Solobill Laville: Bye, Prashant

    I announce the 999th session but, alas, I am premature (see next session for explanation). The 1000th will be tomorrow at 1 pm

    Adams Rubble: (for those of you who might have missed my email this morning, this is the 999th session of PaB)
    Wol Euler: indeed!
    Wol Euler: we need to arrange a celebration somehow...
    Wol Euler: get Storm to rezz one of his champagne sets
    Solobill Laville wonders if someone was making notches on their wall
    Adams Rubble: or cell?
    Solobill Laville: hehe, that too
    Geo Netizen: So the 1pm session is #1,000?
    Adams Rubble: yes

    Moon came next and soon munching on a cookie

    Geo Netizen: Hi Moon
    Adams Rubble: Hello Moon :)
    Wol Euler: yep!
    Crusty Goldshark: hi moon
    Wol Euler: hello moon
    Moon Fargis: greetings
    Geo Netizen: May have to redo my schedule
    Fael Illyar: Hi Moon :)
    Solobill Laville: HI, Moon
    Warm Cookie whispers: Ahhh, Fresh from the oven. Yumm!!
    Adams Rubble watches crumbs floating in the pool
    Geo Netizen: Did you bring enough to share?
    Wol Euler grins
    Moon Fargis: hmmmm maybe :)

    Moon gives us all a cookie

    Warm Cookie whispers: Ahhh, Fresh from the oven. Yumm!!
    Moon Fargis gave you Warm Cookie.
    Adams Rubble: ty Moon :)
    Warm Cookie whispers: Ahhh, Fresh from the oven. Yumm!!
    Wol Euler: delicious!thanks moon
    Warm Cookie whispers: Ahhh, Fresh from the oven. Yumm!!
    Faenik: indeed?
    Geo Netizen: Hmmm ... thanks Moon
    Warm Cookie whispers: Ahhh, Fresh from the oven. Yumm!!
    Warm Cookie whispers: Ahhh, Fresh from the oven. Yumm!!
    Warm Cookie whispers: Ahhh, Fresh from the oven. Yumm!!
    candy cookie* for kero whispers: Mmmmm... Cookie!
    Moon Fargis: Cookies!
    Fael Illyar smiles.
    Moon Fargis: hmmhmmm brb reboot

    Moon vanishes abruptly.

    Crusty Goldshark: Has Moon gone for the hot chocolate?
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Wol Euler: hopefully
    Geo Netizen: So back to music …
    Geo Netizen: I found the book by Mithen to be very interesting: “The Singing Neanderthals”
    Solobill Laville: Yay! Geo floats!
    Geo Netizen: He made some very interesting points
    Fael Illyar sees if she can float too.
    Wol Euler googles
    Geo Netizen: Cookies with my coffee will do that :)
    Fael Illyar: nope, no floatie.
    Fael Illyar: my cookie wasn't a float cookie :/
    Adams Rubble: Geo?
    Faenik: なるほど^^
    Adams Rubble wonders what where the points
    Geo Netizen: He proposesHe proposes that the making of music goes way back
    Geo Netizen: and may be *wired* into us
    candy cookie* for kero whispers: Mmmmm... Cookie!

    Moon returns abd Crusty leaves; we find that when we detach the cookie we float in the air

    Fael Illyar: wb Moon :)
    Wol Euler: wb moon
    Adams Rubble: wb Moon
    PaB Listener Master: Removing "Crusty Goldshark" from list.
    Fael Illyar: Well, it seems to me there are arts for every sense we have.
    Fael Illyar: we like to control what we perceive :)
    Adams Rubble thinking about people using classical music in barns to make cows give more milk
    Fael Illyar: ah, yes, we like to control what others perceive as well
    Wol Euler thinks about watching my boss's kid who can barely stand, dancing.
    Wol Euler: to music, I meant
    Adams Rubble: whoa
    Solobill Laville: oh, yes, that is amazing...very basic...to Geo's point
    Adams Rubble: strong cookies
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Fael Illyar: music or something similar was probably the only way we had to communicate before words.
    Geo Netizen: One of Mithen's points
    Geo Netizen: He provides some support to the thesis that music predated language
    Solobill Laville: yes, i agree, Fael, and also a way to attempt to express the un-expressable

    Another newcomer, Twang, joins us and is interested in the group

    Solobill Laville: then and now
    Geo Netizen: Hi Twang
    Twang Rexen: hello
    Wol Euler: hello twang
    Adams Rubble: Hello Twang :)
    Twang Rexen: is this a private place?
    Fael Illyar: yes, no strict structure, yet it can be used to convey so much.
    Wol Euler: nope, everyone is welcome
    Fael Illyar: Hello Twang :)
    Twang Rexen: yay
    Faenik: ah :)

    Bill leaves

    Solobill Laville: OK, friends, I must be off, thougth I'd stop by for a bit...
    Wol Euler chuckles at Moon.
    Geo Netizen: Bye Solo
    Fael Illyar: See you later Solo :)
    Wol Euler: bye solo, will you be here for the 1000 later?
    Adams Rubble: bye Bill :)
    Adams Rubble: Twang that is a notecard introducing our group
    Geo Netizen: Say Adams, can you give one of those note cards that you give on PaB to me too.
    Geo Netizen: Would be useful for my invetory
    Fael Illyar: is it from the info dispenser here?
    Geo Netizen accepted your inventory offer.
    Geo Netizen: TY
    Adams Rubble: Yes from the dispenser
    Twang Rexen: ty
    Fael Illyar: hmmh... the notecard could use an embedded landmark.
    Adams Rubble: Twang, we record our conversations here. Do you have a problem with that?
    Twang Rexen: no not at all

    Moon transformed into a teddy bear and gave Twang a welcoming hug

    Fael Illyar: Ah, our fluffy teddybear is welcoming Twang :)
    Adams Rubble: We are at the end of this ession though. We meet four times a day at 1, 4, 1 and 4 SLT
    Twang Rexen: ok
    Fael Illyar: ummh... 1,7,1,7 I thought :)
    Wol Euler: SL times
    Adams Rubble: Thats for the correction Fael
    Wol Euler: :)
    Geo Netizen: Yes Fael is right
    Twang Rexen: wow now that is a candy lolli
    Twang Rexen: lol
    Wol Euler: amusing to infer who uses the numeric keypad for numbers and who doesn't ...
    Geo Netizen is confused
    Adams Rubble remembers that 7 is 4 her time
    Geo Netizen nods
    Twang Rexen: may i ask in what part of the world u all from?
    Moon Fargis: germany
    Wol Euler: also germany
    Adams Rubble: I am from the US, east coast
    Geo Netizen: <-- States
    Twang Rexen waves from the UK*
    Geo Netizen loved the way Twang danced into our presence
    Fael Illyar: <-- Finland
    Twang Rexen: am i dancing rofl?
    Moon Fargis: ok ialso need to go
    Geo Netizen: Bye Moon
    Moon Fargis: see you soon
    Wol Euler: you were, yep
    Adams Rubble: bye Moon :)
    Wol Euler: bye moon, see you later perpahs
    Twang Rexen: bye moon nice to have met u

    Moon left

    Fael Illyar: Yes, you were. If you teleport while dancing, you'll keep dancing on other's screens but not on your own.
    Faenik: ah :)
    Twang Rexen: hmm u live and learn lol
    Wol Euler nods. It's a viewer bug.
    Geo Netizen files that piece of info for future refence
    Geo Netizen: *reference
    Twang Rexen: how long have u been doing this?
    Geo Netizen not that he dances much :)
    Twang Rexen: rofl
    Wol Euler: it'll be a year for me on Thursday
    Adams Rubble: This is our 999th session
    Twang Rexen: Oooo wow
    Geo Netizen Adams is faster on the fingers
    Adams Rubble stretches fingers
    Geo Netizen: Not that we have made them all :))
    Fael Illyar: Not quite a year of PaB though
    Wol Euler slaps down her ego.
    Adams Rubble: hehe
    Geo Netizen: I have been attending for only around a month
    Fael Illyar has been attending since late May.
    Adams Rubble wonders if anyone read all 998 sessions
    Twang Rexen: what do u all do in RL?
    Twang Rexen: lol
    Faenik: なるほど^^
    Fael Illyar slacks off too much.
    Twang Rexen: lol
    Twang Rexen: i tend to do that too!
    Geo Netizen: We have an over abundance of science and tech :)
    Geo Netizen: Need more of the arts
    Adams Rubble working on that Geo
    Fael Illyar is kind of branching there a bit too. *points to her wings*
    Geo Netizen: Perhaps Twang can help bring that balance
    Wol Euler: me remembers. When does that exhibition open, Adams?
    Twang Rexen: hmm i did fine art for 4 years
    Twang Rexen: does that count?
    Faenik: ah :)
    Adams Rubble: Hopefully at the end o January Wol
    Fael Illyar: perhaps :)
    Wol Euler: ty
    Geo Netizen smiles at Twang and hopes she become a regular member
    Adams Rubble: Yes, that counts Twang
    Twang Rexen: ok so
    Twang Rexen: how do i read the last 998 sedssions rofl
    Fael Illyar: but if you've done art, you might be able to make textures for things :)
    Wol Euler: they#re on our website, twang
    Wol Euler: http://playasbeing.wik.is/
    Fael Illyar: http://playasbeing.wik.is(
    Twang Rexen: ty
    Adams Rubble: Thanks Wol and Fael
    Wol Euler: there are the full logs, and also a series of "greatest hits" :)
    Wol Euler: the concentrated essence, as it were.
    Twang Rexen: hmm
    Twang Rexen: I fear i may be to dim for this
    Wol Euler: naaaaah.
    Geo Netizen: In no way

    Another newcomer joined us for awhile without giving permission

    Geo Netizen: are we any brighter
    Adams Rubble: no way Twang
    Geo Netizen: I assure you :)
    Wol Euler: the guff that gets spoken here is incidental to what the group is about.
    Twang Rexen: uhm not that age makes a difference
    Adams Rubble: It basically is stopping what we are doing to see what happens
    Twang Rexen: what are the ages of the group?
    Adams Rubble: There are many ages represented Twang
    Wol Euler: immaterial :)
    Twang Rexen: hmm
    Wol Euler: but the average age of SL residents is probably much higher than one first thinks!
    Twang Rexen: i think i might be liking this more and more
    Geo Netizen: Any we always appreciate new topics if you have one
    Wol Euler: most of us are "older" because meditation and sitting still tends not to attract the young and energetic :)
    Twang Rexen: lol
    Twang Rexen: and in i waltzed dancing hehehehe
    Faenik loves wells!
    Geo Netizen: WE all act a little odd in Sl at time
    Twang Rexen: u dont say
    Twang Rexen: lol
    Geo Netizen then thinks that may also be in FL
    Adams Rubble: Geo !!?!
    Adams Rubble: hehe
    Wol Euler: wear that, twang :)
    Wol Euler: it's invisible, a bit of harmless oddity.
    Twang Rexen: what is it?
    Wol Euler: try it, you'll like it
    Wol Euler: truly harmless
    Twang Rexen: its on
    Twang Rexen: lol
    Wol Euler: unless someone says the magic word:
    Wol Euler: onigokko
    Twang Rexen: ROFL
    Twang Rexen: LMFAO
    Wol Euler: stop
