    Wol Euler: what do you see?
    Adams Rubble is all ears
    Nymf Hathaway: I see avi's double foulds
    Nymf Hathaway: needed to search the word :)
    Adams Rubble: foulds?
    Nymf Hathaway: folds, sorry
    Eliza Madrigal: When we begin to see differently, what we see behaves differently? heheh
    Adams Rubble: this sounds like it could lead us right to the question of what is reality :)
    Nymf Hathaway: :)))
    Adams Rubble: hehe
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Wol Euler: that would be unusual
    Adams Rubble: hehe Wol
    Eliza Madrigal: um, Adams....? hehe
    Adams Rubble feeling silly
    Eliza Madrigal: I guess there are alternate universes within SL and PaB too :)
    Wol Euler: :)

    Adams Rubble: hehe
    Nymf Hathaway: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Once we really outdid ourselves in Coconut Grove
    Eliza Madrigal: the police came... we ran :)
    Adams Rubble: oh my (giggles)
    Eliza Madrigal: Yes, we were almost charged with "criminal mischief"
    Eliza Madrigal: or so they said to scare us :)
    Adams Rubble: the beginnings of a life of crime
    Eliza Madrigal: as you see :)
    Nymf Hathaway: hahhaa

    Eliza Madrigal: I miss a little of that recklessness
    Eliza Madrigal: sometimes :)

    Adams Rubble: Wol, Stuart Smiley is a character from the American TV show Saturday Night Live

    Adams Rubble: a certain minority party does not like him much
    Eliza Madrigal: They consulted him for the skit "Barack Obama wants universal heathcare... is that so? Healthcare for the entire universe...even Osama Bin Laden??"
    Adams Rubble: hehe
    Adams Rubble still laughing
    Adams Rubble: Hello Yakuzza
    Wol Euler: hi yakuzza
    sophia Placebo: hi yak:)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey everyone
    Eliza Madrigal: Hey Ya :)
    Adams Rubble looks sternly at everyone (including herself) and points to recorder
    Wol Euler adjusts her expression and sits up straight
    Eliza Madrigal: OM
    Adams Rubble giggles
    Yakuzza Lethecus tries to relax his muscle´s then breethes the tension out
    Adams Rubble: Eliza, Sophia or Yakuzza...do you have anything you would like to discuss. Some of the rest of us have been a bit silly
    Wol Euler nods contritely wiht an expression of sorrow
    Yakuzza Lethecus: as long as its not about himalayan animals or the japanese mafia :)
    Adams Rubble comforts Wol
    Adams Rubble doesn;t know anything about Japanese mafia
    Eliza Madrigal: yet
    Yakuzza Lethecus: nah, i was on PH before and those were just 2 little topics related to my nickname
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Adams Rubble not well versed on himylayan animals
    sophia Placebo: appreciaing the silliness :)
    Adams Rubble: ah
    Yakuzza Lethecus: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yak
    Yakuzza Lethecus: :P
    Adams Rubble: hehe
    Adams Rubble likes Yaks
    sophia Placebo: yak lokks like a lovely animal
    Eliza and Yakuzza started things off with separate comments. The group eventually settled on books we have read
    Eliza Madrigal: I have a bit of a situation in which I 'intend' to greet people 'anew' in life... yet they seem to be flooding into the picture faster than I can process....
    Yakuzza Lethecus: What was the last book anybody read here ?
    Wol Euler: last one we finished?
    Adams Rubble wonders "read"???
    Eliza Madrigal is reading a few books....
    Adams Rubble: Eliza, would you like to say more?
    Eliza Madrigal: but yes finished is a qualifier :)
    Adams Rubble: Looking at people from a doifferent anngle?
    Eliza Madrigal: Just throwing that out Adams... wondered if anyone has that experience
    Adams Rubble: yes
    Wol Euler: The last one I finished was "Going Postal" by Terry Pratchett; currently reading "The consolatoins of philosopy" by Alain de Botton and "the eighth day" by Thornton Wilder
    Wol Euler: I always read at least two books at once
    Adams Rubble: :)
    sophia Placebo: long time no read here , last one was harry potter
    Wol Euler: ah :)
    Eliza Madrigal: yes.... but I'd like to do it systematically and life isn't doing that :)
    Adams Rubble: I think my last was The Color Purple and I am afraid to read again
    Eliza Madrigal has read all the Harry Potters with her kids
    Eliza Madrigal: Anyone who likes those... should read Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norell....
    Wol Euler: oh, adams
    Eliza Madrigal: I'm reading Stim's book also... but very slowly "Time Space and Knowledge"
    sophia Placebo: note taken
    Adams Rubble has been reading Stim's book sonce last June
    Eliza Madrigal: and a book called "Liberation in the Palm of Your Hand"
    Eliza Madrigal: heheh...Adams... see how that is possible!
    Adams Rubble: very slooooowwwwwly
    Eliza Madrigal nods
    Eliza Madrigal: yes, and another book about the Heart Sutra also... so dense.. read a few lines and have to close my eyes for a while and think...
    Eliza Madrigal: like Pooh "think think" "think think"
    Wol Euler: :)
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Wol Euler: there's a lot of good commonsense in Pooh.
    sophia Placebo: heh
    Eliza Madrigal nods and smiles
    Eliza Madrigal: Actually, anyone who likes Dickens would like Jonathan Strange also
    Eliza Madrigal: or Austen
    Wol Euler: ah :)
    A new avatar dropped in looking to have a conversation in voice
    Adams Rubble: Hello A new avatar

    Wol Euler: oh wow, welcome to second life!
    Eliza Madrigal: lovely dress
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hehe, i was glad that i brought a few words in the session :)
    Adams Rubble: we use text here
    A new avatar: the place where i just was people were talking
    Eliza Madrigal: :) Ya... quite a few
    Adams Rubble: I will give you a notecard
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i just read a couple of textbooks, nothing really to the end
    A new avatar: so what are you guys up to?
    Eliza Madrigal: We've been playing, and dancing, and flying, and discussing books :)
    Adams Rubble: The card will explain mpore about us
    A new avatar: oh i see =)
    Adams Rubble: We meditate for 9 seconds every 15 minutes and come here to discuss our explorations or sometimes other things like today
    Wol Euler: I'm afraid we do mostly sit and talk ...
    A new avatar: i have to go now, but i'll read the rest of the card later =D
    Adams Rubble: The group meets here four times a day
    Adams Rubble: OK, bye then. Enjoy second life :)
    Eliza Madrigal: :) Bye A new avatar... good to meet you
    A new avatar: i like talking, its best ^_^
    A new avatar: bye bye
    Ourvisitor gone, we resumed our conversation about reading
    Yakuzza Lethecus: actually i should read more, i want for example read wittgensteins tractatus but i never came over the first 10 pages, i cheated on plato´s republic because i found the audio book and then i have a couple of books that might be interesting because i heard about them several times but didn´t really got over the first pages.
    Yakuzza Lethecus: Like Skinners walden two...
    Eliza Madrigal: Skinner's Walden?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: two
    Eliza Madrigal: Hm
    Eliza Madrigal: The audios can be tricky...
    Yakuzza Lethecus: the other was thorau
    Eliza Madrigal: yes I know Th's..the other is new to me :)
    Wol Euler: ambitious stuff...
    Eliza Madrigal: Audios can be tricky....
    Eliza Madrigal: for instance War and Peace on audio is NOT a good idea
    Eliza Madrigal: too many names :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: Thoreau
    sophia Placebo: bye
    Adams Rubble: bye Sophia
    Yakuzza Lethecus: bye
    sophia Placebo: thanks for the happy time all :)
    Adams Rubble: Thanks for coming :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Bye sophia :)
    Wol Euler: bye sophia, enjoy the evening
    Eliza Madrigal: most men lead lives of quiet desperation....
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i don´t know never really read much my whole life, i try to change that but i have to get rid from some emotions durion reading that trigger absentistic behavior :D
    Yakuzza Lethecus: during
    Wol Euler nods
    Eliza Madrigal: We have a housing complex down the street, with a lake...named "Walden".. the lake has a tall fence around it!
    Eliza Madrigal: Awful
    Adams Rubble: ouch
    Eliza Madrigal looks up absentistic
    Adams Rubble wonders if Eliza wouold tell me too
    Reading and Education and "Imposter Syndrome"
    Wol Euler: so many people are put off reading by school, being forced to read the wrong books at the wrong time
    Wol Euler: which is a terrible waste of possible future happiness
    Adams Rubble: It IS much a matter of reading the right book at the right time
    Eliza Madrigal nods
    Wol Euler: there is so much snobbery in schools about what one may read
    Eliza Madrigal: there is a huge difference between learning and schooling, in general
    Adams Rubble: well, not so much snobbery as not knowing the students
    Eliza Madrigal: there was an article years ago, about imposter syndrome....
    Adams Rubble: A book that might work for one group will fail with another
    Eliza Madrigal: and how most academics haven't read all that they feel they 'should' have or must seem to have :)
    Wol Euler smiles and nods to Eliza.
    Eliza Madrigal: there are party games also... centered around that idea :)
    Wol Euler: it's something very basic and human, apparently almost all of us feel it at least in some situations
    Eliza Madrigal nods
    Eliza Madrigal: It touches on something Ade brought up yesterday about social signaling
    Wol Euler: oh! say more, please?
    Eliza Madrigal: and 'seeming' to belong in a group... hidden and overt messages....
    Eliza Madrigal: it was a great topic, but I only stayed a little while....
    Yakuzza Lethecus: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Impostor_Syndrome
    Eliza Madrigal: she was after a specific idea.. wonder if she found it :)
    Eliza Madrigal knows many people who have reverse imposter syndrome... hehe
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: I'm kidding... would love to have that uber-confidence some have though :)
    Wol Euler: eheheheh
    Adams Rubble: It takes the fun out of academics
    Adams Rubble: the feeling one is not up to it
    Eliza Madrigal: Adams, you think so? Does it not keep a little excitement alive to feel over one's head.. or that you somehow snuck in?
    Eliza Madrigal: in general... I feel like that here some days... hehe
    Adams Rubble: It creates a pressure that interferes with the excitement
    Adams Rubble: whoops
    Wol Euler: oh wow. You too, Eliza?
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Adams Rubble: we start out loving the adventure
    Eliza Madrigal: thanks for that
    Wol Euler: thank you for the company :)
    Adams Rubble missed Eliza's statement. yes we all have felt that Eliza
    Eliza Madrigal: Adams, and then ? Once it is part of the baseline then the pressure comes?
    Adams Rubble: Well I was talking about academia with the pressure
    Eliza Madrigal: yes
    Adams Rubble: the constant comparisons with others
    Eliza Madrigal: ah
    Wol Euler nods
    Adams Rubble: we can do that here if we want but it will make us unhappy
    Adams Rubble: here we need to focus on ourselves
    Adams Rubble: forget about where we may or may not be in comparison
    Eliza Madrigal: :) would not be very playful to compare with others
    I can't help myself and bring up Kira
    Adams Rubble: I think that what Piet is doing with Kira is pretty much what we are talking about
    Adams Rubble: He is trying to mix amateaurs and professionals and just have us all share
    Adams Rubble: no pressures
    Adams Rubble: no comparisons
    Adams Rubble: just the adventure
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Adams Rubble steps down from the soapbox and falls into the pool
    Adams Rubble: (spash)
    Adams Rubble: plash
    Adams Rubble: splash
    Adams Rubble: hehe
    Adams Rubble: messy landing
    Wol Euler: eheheh
    Helping and Comparitis
    Adams Rubble: here loving and helping one another seems to be an antidote to comparing
    Eliza Madrigal nods
    Wol Euler nods. Much of the time, at least...
    Eliza Madrigal: I'm of two thoughts simultaneously on comparitivitis.... I enjoy the wide open space of playing and experiencing 'first' and then talking about that....
    Eliza Madrigal: but I also enjoy sitting in a room where I'm out of my depth/league entirely...
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Adams Rubble: It challenges us
    Eliza Madrigal: yes
    Adams Rubble: If we are stoill here, let's ignore the next stop especially if it comes in the middle of thoughts. It is well past the hour :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i disagree, its good with the break, even ok when you might type somethink a few seconds after but i like the break
    Adams Rubble: OK
    Yakuzza Lethecus: :)

    Adams Rubble: I am going to have to go now. Would anyone mind if I close the log or would you prefer to go on?
    Eliza Madrigal: Please feel free Adams :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Thanks for guardianing
    Wol Euler: sure, adams. take care, enjoy the rest of the day
