    The Guardian for this meeting was Adams Rubble filling in for Pema. The comments are by Adams Rubble.

     I was a bit late getting to PaB and sat for awhile by myself until Eos arrived.

    Adams Rubble: Hello Eos :)
    Adams Rubble: How are you doing?
    Eos Amaterasu: Okay.... how are you? I was scanning thru a chat log where I think you talked about hving been doing PaB for a year
    Adams Rubble: Yes, I have been here a little more than a year and I am well thank you :)
    Adams Rubble: It has been quite a ride :)
    Eos Amaterasu: Where has it taken you? :-)
    Adams Rubble: I have done a bit of deconstructing to learn about myself
    Adams Rubble: or should I say a bit of unlearning
    Adams Rubble: breaking down identities and attachments one by one
    Eos Amaterasu: in those 9 secs or 90 secs gaps?
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Adams Rubble: along with exercises and explorations
    Adams Rubble: different tools for different things I faced
    Adams Rubble: the 9 seconds helps one stopm and look
    Adams Rubble: When I came I never expected to stay more than a few weeks. hehe
    Eos Amaterasu: we're always in some seconds or other
    Adams Rubble nods
    Eos Amaterasu: I like the idea of a group of people coming from different backgrounds doing a practice of suspending pre-this and thats, backgrounds
    Eos Amaterasu: personal and social
    Eos Amaterasu: and paying attention to what's just happening
    Adams Rubble: yes quite a diverse group looking for much the same thing :)
    Eos Amaterasu: what's the commonality?
    Adams Rubble: looking for what is real ?
    Eos Amaterasu: and Second LIfe makes that question more acute?
    Adams Rubble: seeking to understand what is this thing Pema calls Being :)
    Adams Rubble: Second Life helps me look at myself from different angles
    Eos Amaterasu: "though you may know the meaning locked within, it is Being, it is Being" - TNK, The Beatles
    Adams Rubble: just as I can move the camera around my avatar :)
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Eos Amaterasu: Yes, another kind of suspension, the visuality
    Eos Amaterasu: Knowing that the bodies/avatars, are in one sense not real, bu the emotional experience is totally real
    Adams Rubble: I feel that my avatars are different parts of myself
    Eos Amaterasu: is it a myself or a potential to be self/selves?
    Adams Rubble: It could be either but it has helped me isolate things so I can see them better
    Eos Amaterasu: Adams, do _you_ have a Being? Are you being?
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Adams Rubble: Well I know I am but don't ask me to explain
    Adams Rubble: The closest I can come is thinking of the Hindu idea of the God in everyone

    The soundless bell provides some inspiraions

    Eos Amaterasu: (I'm not hearing the bell that starts the 90 secs)
    Adams Rubble: I'm not either but I don;t have my sound on (giggles)
    Eos Amaterasu: Oh oh, Koan territory!
    Adams Rubble: oh? :)
    Eos Amaterasu: If the bell is struck but you don't have your sound on ,does it make a sound?
    Adams Rubble: hehe
    Adams Rubble: only a mist of the water :)
    Adams Rubble: on
    Eos Amaterasu: suggestive
    Eos Amaterasu: of the boundaries of appearance
    Eos Amaterasu: dissolving a bit
    Adams Rubble: :)

    Is the PaB experience important for the world?

    Eos Amaterasu: Is this kind of experience important for the world?
    Adams Rubble: which kind of experience Eos?
    Eos Amaterasu: the kind of thing we do here and in the 1% tax, etc
    Adams Rubble: The best I can do is that it is important for me
    Eos Amaterasu: I guess it's also important for me - I instantly gravitated here
    Adams Rubble: That may be all that is important
    Eos Amaterasu: I suppose if you can relate to what's imporant for you, and not just feel it but practice staying with feeling it
    Eos Amaterasu: yu can also relate to what's important for someone else
    Adams Rubble nods
    Eos Amaterasu: or if you can let yourself be you can let someone else be
    Eos Amaterasu: and that letting me might be contagious :-)
    Adams Rubble: yes
    Adams Rubble: we certainly have an effect on each other here
    Adams Rubble: support each other
    Eos Amaterasu: real community
    Eos Amaterasu: kind of remarkable
    Adams Rubble nods
    Adams Rubble: consodering how we are spread around he globe, truly remarkable :)
    Eos Amaterasu: shared being?
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Adams Rubble: I am afraid I am going to have to go. It is later than I usually am here
    Adams Rubble: good night Eos :)
    Eos Amaterasu: Okay. Late here too.
    Eos Amaterasu: Thank you!
    Adams Rubble: thank you for the chat
    Eos Amaterasu: Caio!
    Adams Rubble: bye :)
