    Moon Fargis: morning fael :)
    Fael Illyar: morning :)
    Fael Illyar: Morning Star :)
    Moon Fargis: mornng star
    Moon Fargis rises an eyebrow , 90 seconds?
    Fael Illyar: Hi Pema :)
    Moon Fargis: ahhh morning, or.. good night pema :)
    Pema Pera: Hi Stargate, Moon, Fael!
    Stargate Tone: Morning Moon, Fael and Pema
    Moon Fargis: pema: i wasnt really able to check all emails but i saw you are doing a Play as being flatrate as tarmel sugessted ?
    Pema Pera: yes, that is the latest experiment
    Moon Fargis: (fatrate might be a engleutsch word)
    Pema Pera: and Storm implemented it in various ways: a second bell 90 seconds after the first one
    Fael Illyar certainly isn't certain what the flatrate means here.
    Pema Pera: with green lettering in the local chat window
    Pema Pera: and also the fountain goes misty during those 90 seconds
    Moon Fargis: (non stop without break, used in Adsl providers here, pay a price and you can surf nonstop how long and often you want)
    Moon Fargis: yes i just wondered ^^
    Pema Pera: so the idea was to have a 1% time tax in RL and 10% in SL
    Pema Pera: 9 sec in RL and 90 while we are here in a PaB session in SL
    Pema Pera: for a while at least
    Pema Pera: to see how that would go
    Moon Fargis: hmhmm ok, how late is it for you atm ?
    Pema Pera: 4 am
    Moon Fargis: brrr
    Pema Pera: did daylight saving time (Sommerzeit) start for you now?
    Moon Fargis: yes ^^
    Moon Fargis: hmhms yes now europe started to mess around with the time again
    Moon Fargis: just pondered this night over this
    Fael Illyar: Hi Qt :)
    Moon Fargis: how human world build everything based on time
    Pema Pera: Hi there Qt!
    Moon Fargis: hi qt
    Pema Pera: thanks, Moon :-)
    Qt Core: springtime i suppose
    Stargate Tone: Hello Qt
    Pema Pera: :)
    Stargate Tone: _/!\_
    Fael Illyar: It's again 11AM in Finland for 1AM meeting. No longer 10AM :)
    Moon Fargis: yup^^
    Qt Core: and it is 10 am here in Italy instead of 9
    Moon Fargis: and still the tiredness s the same :)
    Moon Fargis: cus we just play around with numbers here
    Qt Core: how much these changes disrupt your internal clock ?
    Moon Fargis: ohh for a sleeping bear like me.. verry much :)
    Moon Fargis: but its still intresting to see.. that the humans, who are freely slaves to the time, mess around with their god
    Pema Pera: :)
    Moon Fargis: ahwel maybe its becasue they invented it
    Qt Core: trying to deny it the god status ?
    Moon Fargis: hehe..see, time is everywhere, without time we wouldnt be here becasue noone could calculate the formulas who where needed for all the comlex stuff happening in the pc, even for creating them .... yes i ont see time as god personally but i see how people treat themself that time is one, following its rules exactly as possible
    Moon Fargis likes that binnng
    Fael Illyar smiles.
    Qt Core: your one hand typing reminded me more about directing an orchestra than typing ;-)
    Pema Pera: :)
    Moon Fargis: like a micrwave is ready :)
    Qt Core: great work by storm i suppose
    Pema Pera: yup
    Moon Fargis: ˙·•| mmh *nods* |•·˙
    Pema Pera: the original PaB bell was by Moon and Fael?
    Qt Core: we were talking 12 hours ago about some visual and audio warning
    Moon Fargis: yups
    Pema Pera: yes, and this is the result of that discussion
    Pema Pera: Moon, you know Momo, I guess?
    Pema Pera: Michael Ende's book?
    Qt Core: great response time for something IT related (sorry, jk)
    Moon Fargis: momo.. hmm heard of it
    Moon Fargis: but never read it
    Qt Core: read many many years ago
    Pema Pera: yes, Qt, indeed :-)
    Pema Pera: ah, you were talking as if you were coming straight out of the book -- you may like it, Moon!
    Qt Core: much more gentle and deep than the Never Ending Story
    Moon Fargis: aha
    Pema Pera: did you read the Never Ending Story or see the movie, Qt?
    Qt Core: first the book (when no one knew about it
    Pema Pera: I only read the book, didn't see the movie -- must be almost impossible to put all those ideas in a movie . . . .
    Qt Core: don't even remember if i went to see the movie or waited for it to be aired on tv
    Moon Fargis: well the movies where awsome.. even if i just saw 1 and 2
    Pema Pera: I enjoyed both, read them both two years ago
    Qt Core: i'm not a great movie watcher (at the cinema)
    Moon Fargis: well the "nothingness" he described in the story , i wonder if that has something todo with emptyness i buddhism ...
    Pema Pera: I don't think so -- his nothingness was too nihilistic . . .
    Pema Pera: indicating what happens when fantasy and reality get too much separated
    Qt Core: maybe i'm just ignorant, is the emptyness in buddhism so negative ?
    Moon Fargis: no ^^
    Pema Pera: the fact that neither of the two can stand on its own may come closer to a notion of emptiness
    Qt Core: ok, i feared i had misunderstood the little i get about buddhism ;-)
    Moon Fargis: i just got reminded that basicly when we are in emptyness, also all phantasy and illusions even imaginations are dropped
    Moon Fargis: but then maybe the emptyness in buddhism doesnt reject it as the nothingness
    Moon Fargis: it just fades away into a harmonic state
    Qt Core: but always both and togheter
    Qt Core: both stay or both go
    Pema Pera: emptiness in Buddhism could equally well be called fullness . . . .
    Pema Pera: it goes beyond the realm of concepts
    Stargate Tone: _/!\_
    Moon Fargis: hmhm yes just thought about it, felt that nothingness is dark and emptyness is bright
    Stargate Tone: oh
    Stargate Tone: ah
    Stargate Tone: sry
    Stargate Tone: mixed up again with that word 'nothingless'...which is near like the emptyness in buddhism
    Qt Core: which word is used in english in the book, empty or void ? in italian is the equivalent for nothing (nulla)
    Stargate Tone: which also is light, but not as bright as the emptyness
    Stargate Tone: btw Pema
    Stargate Tone: english is your own language
    Stargate Tone: how do you think about the word 'nothigless' ?
    Stargate Tone: nothingless
    Fael Illyar smiles about 'nothingless'.
    Fael Illyar: clever :)
    Pema Pera: (sorry, waiting for the 90 sec)
    Pema Pera: yes, a nice word, nothingless :-)
    Qt Core: it feel like jumping backward just thinking about it ;-)
    Moon Fargis: ^^
    Stargate Tone: said by the man in Egyp; highly educated in english; genious person...tried to describe 'where' he felt himself to be
    Stargate Tone: and...well...this nothingless I feel to be 'around'...but the emptyness is inside...
    Stargate Tone: that emptyness, which also I'de like to call full
    Qt Core: that almost define something dividing outide and inside.... ourselves ?
    Stargate Tone: the own existence
    Moon Fargis: hmm maybe both ^^
    Stargate Tone: well; have never experienced that fullness around....
    Moon Fargis just remembers how he munched away a box of candy and remembers fullness
    Stargate Tone: well...might silence also be good word to describe the emptyness/full
    Stargate Tone: maybe people could then also understand better, how little possibilities there's to any movement in that state...
    Qt Core: it seem "less void" to me as it refer only to sound
    Moon Fargis: hmm well emptyness, is also termless, everything is stll there, but has no terms, no meaning, no purpose, no good or bad
    Stargate Tone: can U FAel tell the word 'refere' ?
    Pema Pera: yes, silence can come from emptiness and lead further into emptiness
    Pema Pera: and emptiness refers to everything, indeed Qt, like the light of a movie projector
    Moon Fargis: hmhm you can walk in emptyness and still can hurt your foot when you run against something you called table back then
    Pema Pera: refers to all of the movie
    Qt Core: wonder how you will call it after hitting it ;-)
    Stargate Tone: lol
    Pema Pera: :)
    Moon Fargis: well bascly when you are in a state of emptyness, you wouldnt recognice it.. but when you are coming back ..this describes it the best:
    Moon Fargis: *mumblegrumble*
    Stargate Tone: well; take that one can be aware of all earthly things in state of emptyness, but not move...
    Pema Pera: yes, *
    Stargate Tone: ah...may yes need somebody around to move ...
    Moon Fargis: brb
    Stargate Tone: ...silence is golden golden...lalllallallllalllaaaaaa
    Stargate Tone: hearts
    Moon Fargis: golden hmhm
    Moon Fargis waves a "good morning " to pema :)
    Stargate Tone: claps her hands *
    Pema Pera: not yet morning here, Moon, but good :)
    Qt Core: a good wake call especially if you had your eyes closed for the 90 sec silence ;-)
    Stargate Tone: _/!\_
    Moon Fargis: hmhm wel we got better ones, shall i show you ?
    Pema Pera: I like to keep them open, but either way is fine
    Moon Fargis: who dares to click it ?:)
    Pema Pera has a sense of foreboding
    Pema Pera: or deja vu
    Pema Pera: it sounds very much like Manhattan
    Fael Illyar smiles.
    Stargate Tone: -> Pema wonderful
    Pema Pera: actually, I think I'm going to get some more sleep
    Pema Pera: Had a long session with Threedee yesterday evening
    Fael Illyar: Ah Moon, you scared him away :)
    Moon Fargis: hehe
    Pema Pera: only got two hours of sleep
    Stargate Tone: Sweet dreams and good rest
    Pema Pera: :-)
    Fael Illyar: Good night Pema :)
    Moon Fargis: good night pema :)
    Pema Pera: thanks, Stargate!
    Pema Pera: and good seeing you all here
    Qt Core: 'night Pema
    Pema Pera: bye everybody
    Fael Illyar waves.
    Qt Core: i have to go to some chaffeur duty
    Moon Fargis: ah
    Moon Fargis: ok have fun too :)
    Fael Illyar: See you later Qt :)
