    The Guardian for this meeting was Maxine Walden . The comments are by her .

    As I came to the Pavilion I saw several folks there already.  Trying to hurry to a seat and claim the recording I stopped the recording by mistake rather than claiming it.  Just the beginning of an interesting discussion.  By the end of the session we had 18 or so participants, a few coming and going during the session.  This may have been one of the best attended guardian sessions, perhaps any PaB session we have held.

    Fael Illyar blinks 'Why restart the recording?'
    Fael Illyar: oh, wild hair Wol :)
    Maxine Walden: sorry, I was trying to claim it! did the wrong thing!
    Arisia Vita: and how did I get the Listener?
    Maxine Walden: Wol, what do I do to claim the log, as I am the guardian?
    Wol Euler: they are distributed automagically
    Wol Euler: maxine, select "claim" from the dialog wehn you click on the base.
    Fael Illyar: Well, click on it and select claim, not the stop button.
    Fael Illyar: Hi Pila :)
    Arisia Vita: Welcome Pila
    Susi Alcott: hi Pila
    Maxine Walden: ah, thanks.
    Pila Mulligan: greetings
    Adelene Dawner: It's tagged with your name to make it easier for the script, Ari - I got this message, for example: [13:00] Adelene Dawner's PaB Listener: No longer recording. Have a nice day. :)
    Maxine Walden: hi, Pila
    Wol Euler: stopping the recording if nobody has yet claimed it will also make it yours.
    Wol Euler: hello steve, pila
    stevenaia Michinaga: hello
    Fael Illyar: well, the stopper always gets the link. If someone has claimed it before that, they also get it.
    Fael Illyar: Hi Steve :)
    Adelene Dawner: hi, Steve - oh, and Pila snuck in, too. Hi. ^.^
    Maxine Walden: ah, so much I don't know about this. Thanks for updating me
    stevenaia Michinaga: no sneaking
    Pila Mulligan: :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: hello Maxine, so nice to see you
    Maxine Walden: hi, Steve, so good to see you as well
    Arisia Vita: Welcome Pema
    Fael Illyar: Hi Pema :)
    Wol Euler: and pema, a rare treat.
    Adelene Dawner: Hi Max, Hi Pema ^.^ Sca.... good grief, big group today.
    Maxine Walden: ah, yes, Pema hi
    Pema Pera: Hi everybody!
    Wol Euler: hello scath
    Maxine Walden: hi, Scath
    Scathach Rhiadra: Hello all:)
    Fael Illyar: Hi Tarmel :)
    Pema Pera: not that rare, I hope, Wol; this is my 8th session in three days :-)
    Wol Euler: :)
    Wol Euler: rare only in the enormous gap your absences have left in my memory and imagination :)
    Adelene Dawner .... does not think she's up for a crowd, today. Catch y'all later.
    Arisia Vita: welcome Tarmel
    Susi Alcott: hi Tarmel
    Wol Euler: hello tarmel, and bye ade. take care
    Maxine Walden: see you, Ade
    stevenaia Michinaga: Bye Ade
    Scathach Rhiadra: Hey Tarmel:)
    Maxine Walden: hi Tarmel
    Pema Pera: will we fill up the circle?
    Maxine Walden: might do
    Tarmel Udimo: hi all!
    Wol Euler: only two short ...
    Fael Illyar: Hi Scath :)
    Scathach Rhiadra: Hi Fael:)
    Susi Alcott: hi Scath
    Maxine Walden: restful silence it seems...
    Pila Mulligan: hi everyone -- was busy
    Pema Pera: unlike the rest of us . . :)
    Tarmel Udimo: Glad Pema and Stim will resume talks:-)
    Susi Alcott: hi Pema
    Maxine Walden: yes, that is nice, Tarmel
    Pema Pera: Hi Susi!
    Susi Alcott: (I'm connected and disconnected 'all the time')
    Pema Pera: We won't make it into a strict dialogue though, more like a theme session
    stevenaia Michinaga: can you give us any insight on how the Kira birthday celebration turned out Pema?
    Pema Pera: oh, it was fun!
    Pema Pera: Talks, tours, dancing even at the end
    Wol Euler grins and nods. Though I missed the dancing.
    Maxine Walden: what kind of turnout or is that hard to say?
    Pema Pera: oh, I think in total some 80 or so avatars
    Maxine Walden: wonderful
    Pema Pera: but hard to say; people came and went

    Feeling that we were not focussed as a group I decided to ask about topics for discussion; as the reader will note this met with some mixed reviews and several strands of conversation continued.

    Maxine Walden: any PaB topics we would like to discuss?
    Wol Euler: hello adams
    Scathach Rhiadra: Hello Adams:)
    Pema Pera: Hi Adams!
    Maxine Walden: hi, Adams, good to see you
    Pila Mulligan: hi Adams
    stevenaia Michinaga: great turn out Pema
    Pema Pera: almost a full circle . . . .
    Adams Rubble: Hello everyone (and I mean almost everyone )
    Susi Alcott: hi Adams
    Fael Illyar: If I may, I'd like to ask for people to not specifically request PaB topics. Instead ask if there's something anyone wants to talk about. I've got a feeling that asking for PaB topics might get some people with an actual topic to think it's not worthy.
    Susi Alcott: hi steve
    Fael Illyar: Hi Adams :)
    Maxine Walden: OK, Fael, thanks for your comment
    stevenaia Michinaga: hello Susi
    Pema Pera: Hi Moon!
    Fael Illyar: Hi Moon :)
    Scathach Rhiadra: Hello Moon:)
    Adams Rubble: Hello Moon :)
    Tarmel Udimo: ahhhhh moon
    Wol Euler: moon!
    Wol Euler: a full circle
    Susi Alcott: hi Moon
    Pema Pera: full Moon :)
    Moon Fargis: yaay
    Wol Euler: we all get bonus karma points for this :)
    Susi Alcott: _/!\_
    Pila Mulligan: :)
    Fael Illyar: Hi Zen :)
    Moon Fargis: greetings zen ^^
    Tarmel Udimo: don't get me started I may have to start baying
    Wol Euler: hello zen
    Adams Rubble: Hello Zen
    Scathach Rhiadra: Hello Zen
    Pema Pera: Hi Zen!
    Susi Alcott: hi Zen
    Maxine Walden: hi, Moon and Zen
    Zen Arado: Hi folks
    Tarmel Udimo: I was thinking this morning which time slot was the one that most of us seem to make it to, and here we are:-)
    Moon Fargis: ^^

    Moon has some ideas about what to focus on:

    Moon Fargis whispers to tarmel "press my nose press my nose!"
    Tarmel Udimo: would this be a good time to hold Stim/Pema sessions?
    Wol Euler: I think so.
    Wol Euler: if it works for you both...
    Pema Pera: well, it is one of the four designated weekly guardian sessions, and we don't want to dominate that much . . .
    stevenaia Michinaga: 
    Wol Euler: heheh
    Pema Pera: who is that nosey?

    The issue of a focussed conversation during this timeslot with themes by Stem and Pema seemed worth discussing a bit further. The group signals its approval for such a focus.

    Maxine Walden: but the guardians might feel nourished by Stem and Pema sessions during these times
    Moon Fargis: *giggles*
    Pema Pera: well, it is up to you, really
    Tarmel Udimo: agree in fact I think its been the missing ingredient
    Scathach Rhiadra: mmm, maybe a lot of the guardians would appreciate a session with a 'theme'...
    Adams Rubble: seems to me to be a good use of us all being ogether
    Pema Pera: well, let's hold a vote then
    Adams Rubble: ay
    Wol Euler raises her hand
    Tarmel Udimo: me too yes
    Pila Mulligan: what is the vote question?
    Pema Pera: we can all vote pro, con, or neutral :)
    Scathach Rhiadra: me yes
    Maxine Walden: yes, for Stim and Pema meeting during this time
    Pila Mulligan: Sunday at 1?
    Fael Illyar neutral.
    Susi Alcott: _/!\_
    Pila Mulligan: sure -- yes
    stevenaia Michinaga: yes
    Moon Fargis: hmhm ok
    Tarmel Udimo: hey can Stim?
    Maxine Walden: yes
    Pema Pera: interesting question :)
    Pema Pera: we will have to check -- at least one time out of four he is conducting a chan (zen) weekend
    stevenaia Michinaga: like nominating the member who does not attend...grins

    Discussion about having more than one avatar during a meeting picks up.

    Wol Euler: :)
    Moon Fargis: meep ?
    Pema Pera: yup
    Tarmel Udimo: or you may have to clone yourself
    Tarmel Udimo: we were talking about having more than one AV a few sessions ago and what that was like:-)
    Zen Arado: I was wondering about that
    Pema Pera: having an alt here at the same time you mean?
    Arisia Vita: does two keyboards really save that much?
    Zen Arado: why do you need one ?
    Arisia Vita: one brain?
    Zen Arado: need 2 computers ?
    Adams Rubble: Two computers works best
    Pema Pera: http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Help...nd_Life_client
    Wol Euler: there are practical reasons, Zen. Some businesspeople use an alt instead of a partner (because you need 2 people to found a group)
    Zen Arado: same broadband connection would be slow?
    Arisia Vita: still one brain though?
    Wol Euler: (sorry, misread. Ignore that)
    Arisia Vita: don't see how it will save...
    Tarmel Udimo: it was the implications of it that was interesting rather than the technical details:-)
    Zen Arado: other reasons?
    Adams Rubble: Passing things between inventories
    Tarmel Udimo: it allows an individual to express more than oneside
    Zen Arado: you could have sex with youself ?:)
    Wol Euler: hello myna
    Adams Rubble: hello Mayna :)
    Moon Fargis: hmm
    Pema Pera: Mi Myna!
    Moon Fargis: could we ?
    Zen Arado: sorry
    Moon Fargis: ?:)
    Scathach Rhiadra: Hello Myna
    Maxine Walden: hi, Myna
    Susi Alcott: hi Myna
    Fael Illyar: Hi Myna :)
    Zen Arado: hi Myna
    Tarmel Udimo: hi myna
    Myna Maven: Hi all.
    Wol Euler smiles at Fael.
    Moon Fargis: greetings myna
    Fael Illyar smiles back to Wol.
    Zen Arado: tyr being opposite gender ?
    Wol Euler: to get back to Zen's question: alts are different, an alt develops a personality of its own
    Zen Arado: see what they have to put up with?
    Wol Euler: it does things that sometimes surprise you.
    Pema Pera: Hi Stargate!
    Moon Fargis: ahh not just alts do that
    Zen Arado: would increase understanding?
    Wol Euler: hello star
    Adams Rubble: Hello Stargate
    Fael Illyar: Hi Star :)
    Moon Fargis: changing the avatar completley also does this in a away
    Maxine Walden: Jeckle and Hyde perhaps?
    Wol Euler: definitely :)
    Scathach Rhiadra: Hello Stargate
    Myna Maven: You're talking about alt SL personnas?
    Zen Arado: Hi Star
    Wol Euler: mmhmm
    Moon Fargis: hi star
    Tarmel Udimo: hi star
    Maxine Walden: hi Star
    Wol Euler looks at the wiki. Maxine, do you happen to have the name of that session at hand?
    Myna Maven: Hi Star.
    Zen Arado: if you can change the alt you have doesnt seem to be much point?
    Maxine Walden: which session, Wol? the one with the discussion of the several alt?
    stevenaia Michinaga: hello Stargate
    Zen Arado: except for reason Wo gave
    Maxine Walden: alts?
    Wol Euler: yes, that one
    Scathach Rhiadra: is that yesterday's 01:00 session?
    Maxine Walden: no, I don't, does anyone else have that log? Ah, Sat 1am SL log, thanks Scath
    Zen Arado: except for identity tag
    Zen Arado: gives you away
    Wol Euler: ah, right, the griefing incident session.
    Scathach Rhiadra: :)
    Tarmel Udimo: the interest is also does your alt affect your RL life? has one noticed changes in oneself because of one's alt?
    Wol Euler: was that only yesterday?
    Zen Arado: oh yes
    Zen Arado: big changes
    Susi Alcott: hi star :)
    Scathach Rhiadra: yes seems like ages ago:)
    Maxine Walden: interesting question, Tarmel
    Adams Rubble: yes
    Wol Euler: welcome back, medium.
    Stargate Tone: strokes Moon's ears :)****
    Mediumflow Difference: Thank you, Wol.
    Moon Fargis purrrrrrsssssssss
    Wol Euler: http://playasbeing.wik.is/index.php?..._and_twisty%22
    Tarmel Udimo: has anyone noticed any effects apart form lack of sleep?
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Myna Maven: I've experienced no changes in RL connected with the SL avatar.
    Zen Arado: learning about the lives of people in other countries
    Wol Euler: (I met Mediumflow earlier, I've given him the notecard and an intro)

    A couple of more Kira attendees arrive, new to these PaB sessions.

    Pema Pera: Hi Arabella!
    Fael Illyar: Hello arabella :)
    Maxine Walden: hi, Ara, nice of you to drop in
    Myna Maven: Hi Arabella.
    Adams Rubble: Hello arabella :)
    Pema Pera: Let me introduce Arabella, this is her first time here
    Zen Arado: increased tolerance and understanding
    arabella Ella: hiya Pema
    Scathach Rhiadra: Hello Arabella
    Wol Euler: hello arabella
    Pema Pera: But she often comes to Kira sessions
    Zen Arado: hi Arabella
    Moon Fargis: ohh this round would mostly need a ..onigoko ritual.. hmhm
    Tarmel Udimo: hi arabella
    Pila Mulligan: hi Arabella
    Pema Pera: Hi Mickorod!
    arabella Ella: Hiya Scath everyone else
    Scathach Rhiadra: Hello Mickorod
    Maxine Walden: yes, Ara, welcome and Mick
    Pema Pera: Mick, like Arabella, is a Kira regular
    Adams Rubble: Hello Mickorod
    Fael Illyar: Hello Mickorod :)
    Zen Arado: a philosopher !
    arabella Ella: hey Maxine
    Susi Alcott: hi Micko
    Pema Pera: do you think we can fill the second circle now as well :?
    Maxine Walden: might do so, Pema
    Wol Euler: we'd already fill the innner one
    Stargate Tone: hi Mickorod
    Mickorod Renard: hi
    Zen Arado: Hi Mick
    Maxine Walden: Pema, while it is on mind, do you feel comfortable checking with Stim to see if he can make this time occasionally for those theme sessions?
    Pema Pera: Just to let you know, Arabella and Mick, we record our sessions on our wiki, http://playasbeing.wik.is/ , hope that's okay with you both
    Pema Pera: sure, I will, Maxine
    arabella Ella: yes no worries
    Mickorod Renard: fine Pema
    Pema Pera: seems we voted in favor
    Maxine Walden: great!
    Pema Pera: let's see whether he has time then
    Maxine Walden: Yes, that would nice to see what Stim's availability is. This does seem to be a popluar time for many of us
    Pema Pera: but we can start with a theme now, if we like
    Susi Alcott: ty Moon
    Zen Arado: ty
    Pema Pera: for example, what does "play as Being" actually mean
    Mickorod Renard: ty moon
    Moon Fargis: (plese everyone equit this)
    Maxine Walden: thanks, Moon
    Stargate Tone: ty Teddy :)****
    Moon Fargis: (equip)
    Pema Pera: Does anyone like to summarize it for Arabella and Mick, for example?
    arabella Ella: that would be great
    Tarmel Udimo: pema you took the words right out of my mouth:-)
    Mickorod Renard: please
    Pema Pera: hahaha
    Tarmel Udimo: :P >pema
    Pema Pera: well, the basic idea is to try to figure out what it would be like to just be
    Pema Pera: without identifying with what you have
    Tarmel Udimo: deeper, closer almost there....
    Pema Pera: but that may be hard to work with when put that way
    Tarmel Udimo: well a couple more lifetimes but almost...
    Pema Pera: to really *see* what Being is may take some time . . . but there is no reason to "play as if" right now!
    Zen Arado: but you cant do that by talking ?
    Pema Pera: no, you do that by practicing
    Moon Fargis: hmhm yes
    Pema Pera: and there are two aspects of practice
    Pema Pera: one is duration and the other is frequency
    Zen Arado: so why do we talk jsut wondering ?
    Pema Pera: so we all do it in RL (and SL too) and then talk about it here
    Zen Arado: ok
    Pema Pera: ideally all of us do it many times a day
    Pema Pera: for longer or shorter periods
    Pema Pera: half an hour or a few seconds, but many times
    Mediumflow Difference: just being - wouldn't that mean something like: follow what is there & then get your own reactions and actions out of that?
    Pema Pera: that may be a good start Medium
    Pema Pera: the point is to explore
    Pema Pera: and then to compare notes here about what you find
    Zen Arado: but we need both being and doing modes ?
    Zen Arado: alternately
    Susi Alcott: hi Electra
    Pema Pera: well, doing we are already doing a lot . . .
    Pema Pera: being is what we are less familiar with
    Pema Pera: Hi Electra!
    Zen Arado: yes
    Moon Fargis: greetings electra
    Fael Illyar: Hi Electra :)
    Mickorod Renard: so, does that mean we start by doing nothing?
    Adams Rubble: Hello Electrra
    Zen Arado: Hi Electra
    Mediumflow Difference: hi electra!
    Pema Pera: Hi Electra and Medium; We get together a few times a day to chat about the nature of reality, and everything else, and we have a wiki http://playasbeing.wik.is/ -- We record our conversations there. Do you mind being included in our blogs?
    Zen Arado: just being is a good way to get out of depression
    Mediumflow Difference: No!
    stevenaia Michinaga: http://playasbeing.wik.is/Informatio..._in_a_Nutshell
    Pema Pera: thanks, Steve!
    Mickorod Renard: thankyou

    After some introduction to the PaB, another aspect is mentioned by Moon, who soon bursts into song and then gets us all dancing.

    Moon Fargis: well we also should think that play as being always includes PLAY
    Mediumflow Difference: just being seems for me a good way of not being chased by strange and unfruitful goals.
    Moon Fargis: and play also means joy for me
    Zen Arado: what is play ?:)
    Pema Pera: doing nothing can mean many things, Mick -- doing by not-doing, doing without effort, wu-wei in Chinese
    Moon Fargis: ahh what is play perfect answer shall i show you ?
    Pema Pera: yes, play is essential in Play as Being
    Zen Arado: sure
    Moon Fargis: ok i better show
    Moon Fargis: s i gave you all this circle
    Moon Fargis: ccs circle
    stevenaia Michinaga: can someone change the location of the meeting location on the "Nutshell" wiki page?
    Wol Euler: yes, I'll do that.
    stevenaia Michinaga: thx
    Moon Fargis: so please attach that circle now and then stand up
    Mickorod Renard: attach to what?
    Moon Fargis: just wear
    Pema Pera: you see, Mick and Arabella, topics change here rather frequently . . . :)
    Mickorod Renard: ok
    Pila Mulligan: I need to watch, Moon -- due to weak system resourcesand SL connection
    Moon Fargis: ok^^
    Pila Mulligan: :)
    Moon Fargis: ok fael to my back then :)
    Moon Fargis: scat , tarmel ?
    Pema Pera: what should I attach? Are you still handing something out, Moon?
    Moon Fargis: this one
    Mickorod Renard: cool..whats happening?
    Tarmel Udimo: sorry RL
    Moon Fargis: one sec
    Moon Fargis: ok then

    Moon then goes to the middle of the fountain and bursts into a beautiful song which we can all hear clearly.  Much applause follows 

    Moon Fargis: ^^
    Maxine Walden: applause!!!
    Pema Pera: clap clap clap
    Pila Mulligan: nice Moon
    Zen Arado: nice
    Moon Fargis: did everyone heard the song ?
    Scathach Rhiadra: :)
    Mickorod Renard: amazing

    Maxine Walden: yes, heard it very clearly, and was beautiful
    stevenaia Michinaga: yes, thanks
    Myna Maven: Very nice.

    Wol Euler: it'S invisible and has no other side affects than this mad dance :)
    Mediumflow Difference: :)
    Myna Maven: What's the difference between onigokko and onigooko shippo?
    Wol Euler: everyone goes crazy as soon as somebody says teh magic word
    Wol Euler: onigokko
    Moon Fargis: its the same just othern ame

    Mickorod Renard: ok,,mines off

    Wol Euler: this session, yes.
    Riddle Sideways: might need bleacher seats soon
    Wol Euler grins
    arabella Ella: cool
    Wol Euler: actually we might need a better recorder soon. I don't know how well it will deal with that number of avs. that's never happened before.
    stevenaia Michinaga: I've sat on the roofs when needed
    Riddle Sideways: recorder looks like it is acting ok now
    Riddle Sideways: after reading storms scribing, I look up each time here
    Wol Euler: I won't be certain until the session ends, whether it actually grabbed everyone.
    stevenaia Michinaga: the top roof is to far to record, however... but I only checked once
    Mickorod Renard: ok folks,,i have to go now,,but maybe I will come at the proper time next
