    The Guardian for this meeting was Stim, but he couldn't make it.  Fael dug up the chat log from the autologger, and Pema posted it and provided a title.

    Sidona Donogal: Hi Scathach
    Scathach Rhiadra: Hello Sidona
    Sidona Donogal: I thought there was a meeting at this time, right?
    Scathach Rhiadra: yes, have you been here before?
    Sidona Donogal: Only once. I only discovered the place yesterday.
    Scathach Rhiadra: ah, so you know a little about what we are about:)
    Sidona Donogal: yes. I think it is a very good idea.
    Scathach Rhiadra: :)
    Scathach Rhiadra: there are usually more people here, but I suppose it is the time of the year:)
    Sidona Donogal: I see.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: Hello
    Scathach Rhiadra: Hello Corvi:)
    Sidona Donogal: Do you have anything you would like to talk about?
    Sidona Donogal: Hi Corvi
    Scathach Rhiadra: no, do you?
    Sidona Donogal: I wonder if there is any research done about the things people write down.
    Sidona Donogal: In the 9 Sec
    Scathach Rhiadra: well I think they write down things for their own benefit
    Scathach Rhiadra: and also, not everyone can write things down:)
    Sidona Donogal: I guess it would be great to gather all these things.
    Gaya Ethaniel: _/!\_
    Sidona Donogal: Hi Gaya
    Scathach Rhiadra: Hello Gaya:)
    Scathach Rhiadra: I find it quite difficult to write anything down, I have to admit
    Sidona Donogal: I like writing, writing ideas down, dreams, intuitive messages. It is a nice way to surprise myself.:)
    Gaya Ethaniel: ^^
    Sidona Donogal: are there any activities in the group from time to time?
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: Thanks, Gaya.
    Gaya Ethaniel: Some of us met in RL last Oct Sidona
    Sidona Donogal: Great.
    Gaya Ethaniel: I know you know Corvi ^.-
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: yes inded you do.
    Gaya Ethaniel: Sometimes this kind of 'inactive' activity [companionable silence] happens too Sidona ^^
    Scathach Rhiadra: :)
    Sidona Donogal: really?
    Gaya Ethaniel: mmhmm, quite nice no?
    Corvuscorva Nightfire grins.
    Sidona Donogal: well, when in Rome......
    Gaya Ethaniel: ^^
    Gaya Ethaniel: Nothing stops you breaking the silence Sidona :P
    Sidona Donogal: What does the P stand for?
    Gaya Ethaniel: :P - blowing rasberry
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: funny, I can't think of a single thing to talk about today.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: And I feel like I can always think of something...
    Gaya Ethaniel: This titler... what made you to get it Corvi?
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: someone gave it to me at a party.
    Gaya Ethaniel: ah
    Gaya Ethaniel: Is it no copy?
    Scathach Rhiadra: can you remove it if you really wanted to?
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: of course.
    Scathach Rhiadra: :)
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: but I can't change the title.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: only other people can.
    Gaya Ethaniel: That's not fair...
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: kind of fun, though.
    Gaya Ethaniel: ^^ it is
    Gaya Ethaniel: What was the worse title given so far?
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: this is only the second one....
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: heheh
    Gaya Ethaniel: ah ^^
    Sidona Donogal: Has anyone of you tried PoB?
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: what's that?
    Gaya Ethaniel hears the bell
    Scathach Rhiadra: the 9 seconds, paB?
    Sidona Donogal: yes
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: oh, of course.
    Gaya Ethaniel nods
    Scathach Rhiadra: have you tried it yet, Sidona?
    Sidona Donogal: Not yet, but similar things. I like to take a different perspective.
    Scathach Rhiadra: how so, if I may ask?
    Sidona Donogal: Like e.g. in the position of an observer self.
    Sidona Donogal: Or in asking myself wether I am dreaming, throughout the day.
    Sidona Donogal: Or from taking the perspective of the inner self, other times of the higher self.
    Scathach Rhiadra: do you do that through meditation?
    Sidona Donogal: Only sometimes, throughout the day on many occations basicly and before going to sleep.
    Gaya Ethaniel: During the day, you do when you remember to do it or you set a reminder of some sort?
    Gaya Ethaniel: Hey Adele ^^
    Sidona Donogal: Hey Adelene, nice to see you
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: grins.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: Hi, Ade.
    Scathach Rhiadra: Hello adeline
    Adelene Dawner: ^.^
    Sidona Donogal: For the dreaming I pick dreamsigns. Like everytime I turn on a light or see a red car or so.
    Sidona Donogal: usually 5 always different signes a day
    Sidona Donogal: I guess it is similar to the 9 seconds
    Sidona Donogal: not to get caught up in acting so much during the day.
    Gaya Ethaniel nods
    Gaya Ethaniel: ^^
    Gaya Ethaniel: ^^
    Adelene Dawner: What a cute toy, Corvi. ^.^
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: Thanks, Adelene.

    Sidona Donogal: I enjoyed the entertaining effect.
    will Delvalle: i thought htis was a holy place
    Scathach Rhiadra: you have arrived just at the end of a meeting
    will Delvalle: you all seem very chilled
    Adelene Dawner: isn't every place a holy place? ^.^
    Corvuscorva Nightfire laughs..we are chilled.
    will Delvalle: what was the meeting?
    Sidona Donogal: Kind of an "enjoy the silence"- thing.
    will Delvalle: i see
    Scathach Rhiadra: i've given you a notecard Will, explains what we are about:)
    will Delvalle: i've read it
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: well honestly..we talk alot most days.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: just somedays...we don't.
    will Delvalle: can't say fairer than that
    will Delvalle: you talk about reality?
    Scathach Rhiadra: you can also look at he wiki http://playasbeing.wik.is/ for more information
    Scathach Rhiadra: yes, when we talk, it is about reality:)
    will Delvalle: is that existentialist realism?
    Sidona Donogal: What were you looking for?
    will Delvalle: or pure fundamentalist realsim?
    Scathach Rhiadra: just exploring the nature of reality, no particular philosophy
    Adelene Dawner giggles at Will, and replies cryptically, "Yes."
    will Delvalle: sorry- i was taking you literally
    will Delvalle: nice place
    will Delvalle: have you been on here long?
    Adelene Dawner: We do tend ot assume that there's one reality, for what that's worth, but as Scathach said - no particular philosophy. All are welcome here.
    Adelene Dawner: The group's been around since April, but I don't think any of us have been members that long.
    will Delvalle: i'm pleased you say one reality
    Scathach Rhiadra: Hello Allan
    Sidona Donogal: What is your view on it?
    Allan Whiteberry: Hello Everyone
    Sidona Donogal: Hi Allan

    Adelene Dawner: cya, Corvi-Love. ^.^
    Scathach Rhiadra: have you been here before Allan?
    Scathach Rhiadra: bye Corvi
    Allan Whiteberry: I was just flying around at random and dropped in here totally by chance
    Allan Whiteberry: Wondering what's going on
    will Delvalle: me too- i saw the lights on..
    Scathach Rhiadra: we record the discussions here and put the chat logs on our wiki, do you have any objections to being recorded?
    Allan Whiteberry: No

    Adelene Dawner is a winged lion.
    will Delvalle: a griffin
    Adelene Dawner: No, a winged lion. ^.^
    will Delvalle: same thing in greek religion
    Scathach Rhiadra: I've given you a notecard which explains what we are about

    will Delvalle: where are you from rhiadrah?
    Scathach Rhiadra: hmmm, well in SL, we don't usually mix RL & SL:)
    will Delvalle: sorry
    Scathach Rhiadra: np:))
    will Delvalle: just wondered what you reality was
    Allan Whiteberry: That is a question that I almost always ask people I speak with
    Scathach Rhiadra: ah
    will Delvalle: some people bite your head off i know for that question Al
    Allan Whiteberry: figuratively
    Adelene Dawner: I rarely ask, but don't mind sharing... and it does sem to come up. Most don't mind being asked, that I've seen.
    Scathach Rhiadra: haha, well, I don't bite:)
    Allan Whiteberry: Mine is in my profile
    Allan Whiteberry: I don't hide it
    will Delvalle: Adelene -you have a unique view of SL
    Adelene Dawner shrugs. "I seem to have a unique view of most things."
    will Delvalle: do you want to be flying lion?
    Adelene Dawner: In what sense?
    Allan Whiteberry: obviously
    Adelene Dawner grins at Allan.
    will Delvalle: grins/ sizes up for lunch
    will Delvalle: i'd run mate
    Adelene Dawner chuckles.
    Scathach Rhiadra: well, unfortunately i have to leave now, its been nice meeting you all, may see you again sometime
    Sidona Donogal: see you!
    will Delvalle: night
    Allan Whiteberry: bye
    Scathach Rhiadra: Namasté
    Adelene Dawner: My perspective, as far as avatars, is that the whole world here is highly metaphorical anyway, so why not use a more meaningful metaphor? ^.^
    Adelene Dawner: cya, Sca.
    will Delvalle: sorry sidona i did not see you behind the fountain
    Sidona Donogal: Nothing wrong.
    will Delvalle: and then there were 4
    will Delvalle: including one female pussycat
    Sidona Donogal: I found it difficult to get a body and get dressed and everything, really
    Sidona Donogal: I am only in SL for four days now.
    Adelene Dawner: You'll get used to it, Sid. I can answer questions if you run into trouble.
    Allan Whiteberry: I saw that. I always read profiles
    Sidona Donogal: Thank you Adelene!
    Adelene Dawner: ^.^
    Sidona Donogal: How about you Allan?
    Allan Whiteberry: If you are new Didona, how did you find this place?
    Allan Whiteberry: Was it randome, like me?
    will Delvalle: i've loged on about a month ago- this is about my 10th time on
    Allan Whiteberry: What about me?
    Allan Whiteberry: I'm not sure of the question
    Sidona Donogal: Are you here for long?
    Allan Whiteberry: About a year
    Sidona Donogal: I was looking for some spiritual meeting place.
    Sidona Donogal: Then I liked the whole kira-idea.
    will Delvalle: so Adelene- what brings you here?
    Allan Whiteberry: May I ask where you are from, Sidona. I am guessing it is not an English speaking country, although your English is excellent.
    Sidona Donogal: I do my best.
    will Delvalle: not sure there Al
    Adelene Dawner: I've been an active guardian for months, Will... *chuckle* believe it or not, it's mostly for the socialization at this point. ^.
    Adelene Dawner: ^.^
    Sidona Donogal: The most important is to be understood, not the gramma
    Allan Whiteberry: of course
    will Delvalle: never thought i would be chatting to a winged lion...
    Adelene Dawner chuckles.
    Allan Whiteberry: I take it then, you would rather not say. NP.
    Sidona Donogal: It is also new for me to "chat". I am all puzzled about abbreviations and all that. But I will get used to it.
    Sidona Donogal: It is fun to get into it though.
    Allan Whiteberry: I only know a few of the abbreviations
    will Delvalle: i think these 2 can do without us winged lion
    Adelene Dawner shrugs.
    Sidona Donogal: Adelene. What does a guardian do?
    Allan Whiteberry: It seems to be getting dark. What time is it here?
    Adelene Dawner: It's the title given to official members of the group. Every meeting also has a guardian-on-call, who takes the log of the meeting. Not every guardian has a guardian-on-call assignment, though. (Mine is Friday at 7pm)
    will Delvalle: i leave you guys to it
    Adelene Dawner: Allan - 2:30, but SL's 'day cycle' is every 6 hours, so four SL days per RL day.
    Adelene Dawner: cya, Will.
    Sidona Donogal: by will
    will Delvalle: night all
    Allan Whiteberry: Thanks, I never knew that.
    Allan Whiteberry: night will
    Sidona Donogal: Me not too
    Allan Whiteberry: So SL time conicides with Pacific Standard Time?
    Adelene Dawner: yup
    Sidona Donogal: So the meetings here are "really "every day at the same time?
    Allan Whiteberry: Interesting, but the 6 hour days confuses things
    Adelene Dawner: yup, every 6 hours around the clock.
    Adelene Dawner: Allan - most people don't seem to worry about it, and if the darnkness bothers you, you can change it.
    Sidona Donogal: But the 9 seconds are in real-time 15-minutes, right?
    Adelene Dawner: World > Environment Settings (last entry on the list) >Midday will set your view to noontie lighting.
    Adelene Dawner: And yes, 15 RL minutes.
    Allan Whiteberry: Yes, I know how to set the time to middday.
    Adelene Dawner: ok
    Sidona Donogal: How did you do that? turning on the light?
    Adelene Dawner: hm?
    Allan Whiteberry: World>Environmental settings
    Sidona Donogal: Thank you
    Adelene Dawner: [14:34] Adelene Dawner: World > Environment Settings (last entry on the list) >Midday will set your view to noontime lighting.
    Allan Whiteberry: On your toolbar
    Adelene Dawner: also, at the bottom, clicking 'local chat' in the 'communicate' menu will let you see the chat history - very useful.
    Sidona Donogal: I got to go now. Hope to see you soon. Buy
    Adelene Dawner: cya
    Adelene Dawner chuckles. "No worries, I ate before I came." *toothy grin*
    Adelene Dawner: most likely not... see you around. ^.^
    Adelene Dawner: good :)
