    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey everyone

    Yakuzza Lethecus: oh, only gen :)

    genesis Zhangsun: Hi Yakuzza

    genesis Zhangsun: yes only me

    Yakuzza Lethecus: good morning then

    genesis Zhangsun: good morning to you

    genesis Zhangsun: ?

    Yakuzza Lethecus: nah, germany here

    Yakuzza Lethecus: but sure we haven't spoken so far when i recall that right

    genesis Zhangsun: ah right so good evening

    Yakuzza Lethecus: sad that you couldn't log in to the last coparative law session

    genesis Zhangsun: yes

    genesis Zhangsun: were you there?

    Yakuzza Lethecus: yeah, i was waiting but i was nearly asleep anyway :)

    Yakuzza Lethecus: i watch the screen while lying on the couch at that time usually :)

    genesis Zhangsun: I lost internet connection about 5 minutes before

    genesis Zhangsun: and then ran to an internet cafe

    genesis Zhangsun: but their connection was not strong enough for SL

    genesis Zhangsun: I could only manage to send emails out

    Yakuzza Lethecus: i am just curious, i follow many events, i am not really related to law or what ever but it´s actually interesting to hear even more about those topics as well :)

    Yakuzza Lethecus: so i like the variation on kira

    Yakuzza Lethecus: i even heard about retreats here on pab for the first time

    Yakuzza Lethecus: since buddism was also a bit alienated to me

    genesis Zhangsun: well technically the retreat isn't a buddhist retreat

    genesis Zhangsun: it is basically a continuation of what we do here

    genesis Zhangsun: which probably has parallels to buddhist practices but isn't buddhism per se

    Yakuzza Lethecus: yeah, i understood it in that way

    genesis Zhangsun: so are you interested in attending the retreat?

    Yakuzza Lethecus: nah, it's to far away and we just started working after our company was closed for 2 weeks

    Yakuzza Lethecus: maybe if there might be one next year :P

    genesis Zhangsun: sure, likely to happen. So why was your company closed?

    genesis Zhangsun: holiday?

    Yakuzza Lethecus: yeah, that was a regular thing

    Yakuzza Lethecus: we always close for 2 weeks during the summertime, we are very small only 3 coworkers and the boss :)

    Yakuzza Lethecus: so there was the "schützenfest" in the town i am working in

    Yakuzza Lethecus: and that is usually when our vacation starts

    genesis Zhangsun: what is the schuzenfest?

    Yakuzza Lethecus: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schützenfest

    genesis Zhangsun: are you in Bavaria?

    Yakuzza Lethecus: no balve

    Yakuzza Lethecus: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Balver_Höhle


    Yakuzza Lethecus: I don't like the Schützenfest that much :)

    Yakuzza Lethecus: for me it's just a cultural event where most of the people have the habit to get drunk :)

    Yakuzza Lethecus: that's what i see in the schützenfest, everything else is tradition but i guess even the drinking is :D

    genesis Zhangsun: so its quite of a summer beer festival in a way?

    Yakuzza Lethecus: right

    genesis Zhangsun: sorry I was looking at Balve in relation to Berlin

    genesis Zhangsun: Germany is so big

    Yakuzza Lethecus: i am not directly in balve, every villiage got it's own schützenfest here :)

    Yakuzza Lethecus: 400km west

    Yakuzza Lethecus: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Balve

    genesis Zhangsun: I think we actually had this conversation

    genesis Zhangsun: I remember looking up balve

    genesis Zhangsun: sorry about that

    genesis Zhangsun: I think it must have been earlier this year though

    Yakuzza Lethecus: oh, i can't remember have talked to you so far

    Yakuzza Lethecus: maybe bad memory :)

    genesis Zhangsun: I think it was quite early on when you first came to PaB

    genesis Zhangsun: when did you first join?

    Yakuzza Lethecus: i guess 3-4 weeks after i was born

    Yakuzza Lethecus: around april

    genesis Zhangsun: and how have you found it so far?

    Yakuzza Lethecus: it's just one place with very interesting people and especially openminded persons

    Yakuzza Lethecus: great variation of topics!

    Yakuzza Lethecus: sometimes it's hard to get topics started or to find something to discuss but when one starts it's usually great :)

    genesis Zhangsun: yes thats true, so do you have an interest in meditation?

    genesis Zhangsun: or "creative exploration" as I heard it called recently

    Yakuzza Lethecus: i have, it's just one of many things i am interested in and i even think about my own thinking of the term ,,meditation"

    Yakuzza Lethecus: in that past meditation was just something wired for me but i guess i acquired that by the people i am usually surrounded by

    Yakuzza Lethecus: so changing the wired prejudice to get to ,,concepts to achieve more selfawareness"...

    genesis Zhangsun: what do you mean by "wired"?

    Yakuzza Lethecus: wiered ?

    genesis Zhangsun: ah yes weird!

    genesis Zhangsun: something strange

    Yakuzza Lethecus: weird :D

    Yakuzza Lethecus: right :)

    genesis Zhangsun: thats a big thing to overcome your own prejudicies

    genesis Zhangsun: and to recognize that they were influenced by the people around you

    Yakuzza Lethecus: to some part we need concepts in schema's and when you know it'´s even percieved as weird in ur usual peergroup then you don't elaborate much on it

    Yakuzza Lethecus: here it's a normal topic thats actually very interesting


    genesis Zhangsun: do u meditate?

    Yakuzza Lethecus: only with cds sometimes

    Yakuzza Lethecus: i don't know if that really would count for you as meditation

    Yakuzza Lethecus: there are a couple of meditations on the cds i am using

    genesis Zhangsun: I suppose anything can "count" here as meditation :)

    genesis Zhangsun: after all 9 seconds is a pretty quick "meditation" from a more traditional perspective

    Yakuzza Lethecus: hehe, it's interesting to for example trying to imagine different perceptions like walking on sand, icecube melting...

    Yakuzza Lethecus: or just to still the mind with relaxing the tongue

    Yakuzza Lethecus: or different technniques

    Yakuzza Lethecus: so it's quite new for me, and i don't do that regularly but i started at least to try some forms

    Yakuzza Lethecus: with the 9 seconds i only try "not to think"

    Yakuzza Lethecus: brb

    genesis Zhangsun: how does that work out for you?

    genesis Zhangsun: not thinking

    genesis Zhangsun: Yak

    genesis Zhangsun: I have to go

    genesis Zhangsun: RL calls

    genesis Zhangsun: thanks for the nice chat!

    genesis Zhangsun: hope to see you in the comparative law workshop when it restarts in Sept
