    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey there
    Caledonia Heron: hi :)
    Caledonia Heron: how are you today?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i hope you had a good start into the day :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: yeah, i am fine, just came home from work and had lunch/dinner
    Yakuzza Lethecus: too late for lunch too early for dinner but it´s the last meal :P
    Yakuzza Lethecus: 4pm around here
    Caledonia Heron: just getting started here :)
    Caledonia Heron: 9am
    Yakuzza Lethecus: ur in texas ?
    Caledonia Heron: yes :)


    Yakuzza Lethecus: are you interested in buddism,taoism like pema and many others here ?
    Caledonia Heron: interested in it as I am in many things, though not a "follower"
    Yakuzza Lethecus: it´s complicated i think i became more interested in that but my self perspective was more that i am just curious about the interests of the people
    Caledonia Heron: how about you?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: here
    Yakuzza Lethecus: so, there is really much to get in contact with and to think about around here and what might trigger initial interests
    Yakuzza Lethecus: in the first place i was just on all those kira events and now i notice me spending too much time alone for pab :)
    Caledonia Heron: :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: there isn´t that much to learn in second life itself to my believe but it can trigger interests and inspire
    Yakuzza Lethecus: so i changed in the selection of podcasts i listen to often
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey adams
    Caledonia Heron: hmmm, well, imo there's lots to learn in SL and.... yes, it does trigger interests


    Caledonia Heron: hi Adams :)
    Adams Rubble: Hello Cl and Yak :)
    Adams Rubble: Cal
    Caledonia Heron: :)
    Caledonia Heron: how are you today?
    Adams Rubble: I am well. I just had a thought that I haven't seen Cal at PaB in a long time
    Adams Rubble: so here I am
    Caledonia Heron: :) usually my friend Kallie comes  :)
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Adams Rubble: we have lots of friends. hehe
    Caledonia Heron: indeed :)
    Adams Rubble: I hope I did not interrupt
    Caledonia Heron: no, not at all... Yakuzza was asking me if I lean to the buddhist, toaist camps
    Adams Rubble: :)


    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey gen
    Adams Rubble: Hello Gen :)
    Caledonia Heron: I think lots of people who come here have those interests in common
    Caledonia Heron: hey Gen :)
    Adams Rubble: It seems to be a popular subject :)
    Caledonia Heron: do you follow those traditions Yakuzza?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: no, i am just curious
    Adams Rubble: That is another thing we have in common
    Yakuzza Lethecus: and i like the fact that people here are often really devoted to those topics and have deeper inside
    Yakuzza Lethecus: so when i am here it doesn´t feel like the mumbo jumbo i thought it was before i came here


    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey sophia
    Caledonia Heron: hi sophia :)
    Adams Rubble: Hello Sophia :)
    sophia Placebo: hi yak ,adams,cal and gen :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: because people here are able to explain things and know about those traditions and have an overview of what they are interested in
    Adams Rubble: wb gen :)
    Caledonia Heron: hey (again) Gen :) ... rough login? :)
    genesis Zhangsun: Hi Adams, sophia, yak, and Cal
    genesis Zhangsun: yeah u got it CAl
    Caledonia Heron: makes sense Yakuzza, people explain their experiences from which you might be able to draw parallels or ideas


    Caledonia Heron: any recent experiences along the 9sec lines you might like to share?
    Adams Rubble: A very good question Cal :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: finally the spotlight moves away :)
    Adams Rubble: hehe
    Adams Rubble has gotten out of the habit. a nice reminder
    Caledonia Heron: out of the 9sec habit or spotlight habit?
    Adams Rubble giggles
    Adams Rubble aims a sotlight at Cal
    Caledonia Heron: lol all of a sudden I'm lost
    Caledonia Heron: I personally took up what seemed like a lot of bandwidth the last time I was here so my aim today is to let others share :)
    Adams Rubble: Sorry I missed that Cal :)
    Caledonia Heron: it was no big deal :)
    Caledonia Heron: just personal experience that goes to our discussion
    Adams Rubble: I find it interesting that while it not good to try too hard that somehow we have to stay engaged
    Adams Rubble: The 9 seconds can help do that
    Adams Rubble: It is so easy to lose our way again


    sophia Placebo: im having an experiance to keep silent as long as possible in pab
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Caledonia Heron: lol, oops sophia, have to start over :)
    Adams Rubble: I love to hear you talk Sophia :)
    Adams Rubble: hehe Cal
    Caledonia Heron: why do you choose to keep silent Sophia?
    genesis Zhangsun: what inspired the silence Sophia?
    sophia Placebo: more peacefull , no sudden spotlights
    Adams Rubble puts the spotlight away
    sophia Placebo: keep you open to poeple , know them without crashing with them
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Caledonia Heron: for sure
    Caledonia Heron: the flip side of that coin is if you share we can learn from you :)
    Adams Rubble: and we do :)
    sophia Placebo: :)
    sophia Placebo: imagine if no one talks in this world , it would be a disaster
    Adams Rubble: we would be little islands
    Caledonia Heron: maybe groups and collaborations would still form using other ways to communicate


    Adams Rubble: we are social animals
    genesis Zhangsun: language is fascinating- the use of words to communicate, like rafts bringing us across the river but often we get attached to meanings and forget what words are for :)
    sophia Placebo: :)
    Adams Rubble: just one of the things we get ourselves attached to :)
    genesis Zhangsun: some might say it is the primary attachement
    genesis Zhangsun: now with all of the research out there indicating that language actually shapes our thoughts as opposed to the other way around
    Caledonia Heron: yes, it is one of the first things we teach our babies, how to communicate using primitive and then more sophisticated vocabularies


    genesis Zhangsun: Language is the house of Being. In its home man dwells. Those who think and those who create with words are the guardians of this home.
    genesis Zhangsun: Martin Heidegger
    genesis Zhangsun: "On the Way to Language"
    Caledonia Heron: interesting quote and citation, thank you
    genesis Zhangsun: seems fitting :)
    Caledonia Heron: are you reading that or did your memory withstand the test of time? :)
    genesis Zhangsun: I just finished reading it
    genesis Zhangsun: memory is terrible :)
    Adams Rubble: yet we continue to use so much non-verbal cimmunication
    Adams Rubble: so often what we say is given meaning by whether we say it through are teetch or with a friendly smile
    Adams Rubble: teeth
    Yakuzza Lethecus: thats for example something why i am around here, and i often just feel that i just can´t share insides
    Adams Rubble: except here in SL (giggles)
    Caledonia Heron: funny comparison, I am reading "The Importance of Being Earnest" whose brilliance relies on the flippancy of language, the hilarity of language :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i like to hear heidegger cited or or language as a topic in general
    genesis Zhangsun: it would be a great theme session
    Caledonia Heron: yes, for sure, everyone has a stake in it :)
    sophia Placebo: just thought to share :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: thx
    Adams Rubble: hehe
    Adams Rubble: thank you Sophia
    genesis Zhangsun: :)
    Caledonia Heron: ty Sophia :)


    genesis Zhangsun: we should have a group "The Importance of Being Earnest" it would be a great tag/reminder
    Caledonia Heron: lol yes
    sophia Placebo: yw :)
    Caledonia Heron: there used to be a comic called Frank and Earnest
    genesis Zhangsun: good reminder to lighten up :)
    genesis Zhangsun: hehe
    Caledonia Heron: I had an English prof that would say, "I'll be frank and you be earnest."
    Adams Rubble: :)
    genesis Zhangsun: seems like a great way to express the teacher/student relationship :)
    genesis Zhangsun: (me being earnest)
    Caledonia Heron: :)
    Caledonia Heron: yeah, I thought so too, he was a great teacher
    genesis Zhangsun: good teachers are frank and good students earnest
    Caledonia Heron: for sure

    genesis Zhangsun: bye Adams
