    SophiaSharon Larnia: and wondered, how was the flight?
    Qt Core: for being my first it was even better than taking a bus
    SophiaSharon Larnia: yea!
    SophiaSharon Larnia: because my first flight was just a few years ago
    Qt Core: they told me we had some big turbolence in one of the flight but i slept it ;-)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: oh thats good I havent hit real turbulence yet
    SophiaSharon Larnia: it was a mini epiphany, my first flight, how it didnt feel right and right at the same time
    Bertram Jacobus: the fontane ... is it hypnotising a bit ? ... ;o)

    SophiaSharon Larnia: wants to swim in it, it's hot outside :)
    Bertram Jacobus: temperatures raise ...
    Bertram Jacobus: i read about ideas to install devices in space to lower the sun influence if necessairy ...
    SophiaSharon Larnia: the first flight I ever took, I did managed to doze off for a few minutes, and had a dream with one thought that woke me up...what do we do when the light turns red? I couln't sleep again on a flight ;P
    SophiaSharon Larnia: like some kind of sheild Bertram?
    Qt Core: i have no problem sleeping, i have a massive sleep debt accumulated in last couple year
    SophiaSharon Larnia: ah yes
    Bertram Jacobus: yes exactly. many shields
    SophiaSharon Larnia: a part of me thinks this technology is already being developed and tested
    Bertram Jacobus: a part of you ?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: haha
    Bertram Jacobus: which part ? and which part not ? :-)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: ok bad way to put that, I am phone it in today, so to speak

    Qt Core: and they could even have solar cells on the outside side...
    Bertram Jacobus: yes
    Bertram Jacobus: they ? we ? :-)
    Bertram Jacobus: mankind ?
    Qt Core: we can have solar cells on us ? ;-)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: as expensive as things in the space program is, the money is probably being funneled somewhere else

    Shyama Sheryffe: hi stev
    Qt Core: hi Stevanaia
    Bertram Jacobus: i would like to ask : are you engaged in other projects or groups linked with the pab ? and if yes - how ? or in another way also questioned : what can one do else with this project ?
    Qt Core: i may like it but i can't find the coupling of will, time and commitment to do it
    Bertram Jacobus: ah okay. i see ...
    Bertram Jacobus: but if you wanted to, you would know how ?
    Bertram Jacobus: and what ? ;-)
    Qt Core: i think i would ask someone of the other guardian or in the Kira Cafe or on the relative websites
    Bertram Jacobus: okay. very easy :-)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: i wish I could go to more Kira groups, never seem to be on when they are going on
    Qt Core: i have the feeling of always been in the wrong timezone too ;-)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: :)
    Qt Core: being


    Bertram Jacobus: and other meeting areas here ? are there some and are they used ?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: there are quite a few discussion groups in sl
    Qt Core: i only went a couple time to the Kira Cafe, it is north, from here
    Bertram Jacobus: and what did you find there qt ? :-)
    stevenaia Michinaga: I think there is a balloon ride that takes you there
    Bertram Jacobus: okay. thanks for the hint stevenaia :-9
    SophiaSharon Larnia: Join the Kira Cafe group, Bertram :)
    Qt Core: a nice place, science related meeting
    Bertram Jacobus: yes. i saw it, but did not use it yet steven :-)
    stevenaia Michinaga: yes
    Qt Core: something in japanese too if you can understand it
    Bertram Jacobus: oh no - for sake not (japanese) -
    stevenaia Michinaga: then there is always the "Landmark"
    Bertram Jacobus: thanks for the lm steve :-)
    stevenaia Michinaga: :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: they have an index of all the groups inside
    Bertram Jacobus: and sophias - you take part in such discussion groups ?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: I would like to participate more
    SophiaSharon Larnia: but have not gone in a long time
    Qt Core: they send a few notices too about all the meetings they have, it make you wish you have a third life ... to attend to all of them
    Shyama Sheryffe: what was that landmark ?
    Bertram Jacobus: okay ... so you mostly participate here ?
    stevenaia Michinaga: some have logs on the Kira site
    stevenaia Michinaga: yes
    Bertram Jacobus: of kira cafe shyama
    SophiaSharon Larnia: I wanted so much to go to Stim's workshop, but felt I was 'behine' the class, and not sure if it is still going on
    SophiaSharon Larnia: behind*
    Bertram Jacobus: what was the topic in that class sophais ?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: oops sorry brb
    Bertram Jacobus: np
    SophiaSharon Larnia: Ways of Knowing
    Bertram Jacobus: sounds interesting ...
    stevenaia Michinaga: Thu, Aug 6 Ways of Knowing Workshop: Stim Morane (1400 - 1500)
    stevenaia Michinaga: :)
    Bertram Jacobus: whereas ... knowing ... i think it´s alway "only relative", isn´t it ? ...
    SophiaSharon Larnia: ty!!
    SophiaSharon Larnia: yes Bertram :)
    Bertram Jacobus: and isn´t the question for the absolute much more interesting ?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: it is, but for me to get there from here, takes small steps ;P
    Bertram Jacobus: or many question related to that. for example how to reach it. about several ways ...
    SophiaSharon Larnia: different ways that can be used to arrive at an understanding of reality.
    Bertram Jacobus: modesty ... a graet quality ... *sigh* ...
    Bertram Jacobus: but from a certain point, understanding may not help anymore (?)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: I like to think how they interact.. the different ways of knowing, and how they influence each other
    Bertram Jacobus: who do you mean with "they" ? :-)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: the different ways appearances are interpreted and how
    SophiaSharon Larnia: people in general
    Bertram Jacobus: okay. nice
    SophiaSharon Larnia: its rather clinical, that way of looking at it


    Bertram Jacobus: what do you mean with that ? is that good or not so good ? :-)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: at risk of saying something 'strange' here (haha), I fall back on theoretical explorations when I feel emotionally involved in what I'm thinking about.
    SophiaSharon Larnia: (ugh lag is bad)
    Bertram Jacobus: i think, the "strange things" often are the most authentical ones ...
    SophiaSharon Larnia: oh yes
    Bertram Jacobus: and i like them very much
    Bertram Jacobus: appreciate them
    Bertram Jacobus: it needs encouragement to express them
    SophiaSharon Larnia: the emotional involvement that I am talking about here is sometimes stranger then the refuge of theoretical ones ;P
    Bertram Jacobus: i think that is very normal ... :-)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: a way of knowing is sometimes not read about in books or heard from others, sometimes an idea just comes to the surface on its own
    Bertram Jacobus: yes. i know a phenomenon at the billiard game (!) : sometimes one "knows", that the hit will be alright - and that happens then, too
    SophiaSharon Larnia: yes :) its like that
    Bertram Jacobus: :-))
    SophiaSharon Larnia: i think things surface when you are reading to hear it, but sometimes this gets intense
    SophiaSharon Larnia: so rely on what others have to say about it
    SophiaSharon Larnia: well, maybe not rely, so much as want to hear other pointsa of view
    Shyama Sheryffe: its kind of syncronism
    SophiaSharon Larnia: :) love that!
    Bertram Jacobus: yes. that touches the general topic of "interaction versus the own world" ? ... :-)
    Bertram Jacobus: and i think, because we are gregarius animals, we like so much understanding (me too !) ...
    Shyama Sheryffe: gregarius ?
    Bertram Jacobus: beings living in grous normally
    Bertram Jacobus: and traditionally
    Shyama Sheryffe: ah...
    Bertram Jacobus: groups* :o)
    Shyama Sheryffe: nods
    Bertram Jacobus: :-)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: born to seek
    Bertram Jacobus: sure ? :-)
    Shyama Sheryffe: and being connected with ppl...
    Shyama Sheryffe: is a kind of spirituality to me
    Bertram Jacobus: "yes" - it´s a fate ... karma ...
    Bertram Jacobus: but - even thus i´m nearly addicted to groups, connections, understanding etc. - spirituallity goes wider as only in relation to others, no ? :-)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: thats lovely Shyama
    Shyama Sheryffe: yes..
    Bertram Jacobus: fine. nice. ...
    Bertram Jacobus: wonderful. to understand and to feel to be understood ...
    Shyama Sheryffe: if we r separated..its not right way to me..
    Bertram Jacobus: i have the same impressions . i think, being connected is ... a goal, a normal state, kind of home ...
    Shyama Sheryffe: nods
    SophiaSharon Larnia: lately i have been feeling a pulling away, in seeing appearances as full, this is not permenant but if feels like it is okay to do, right now
    SophiaSharon Larnia: i dont know what this means yet lmao
