    sophia Placebo: Hi Yak !
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey everyone
    Geoff Baily: hi Yakuzza
    Archmage Atlantis: Greetings, Yak
    Yakuzza Lethecus: any topics ?
    Archmage Atlantis: None I've heard so far
    Archmage Atlantis: The thing that has been on my mind the most is the approaching winter solstice
    Archmage Atlantis: The renewal of the sun
    Archmage Atlantis: I got reminded that's just for out hemisphere :)
    Archmage Atlantis: *our
    sophia Placebo: say more arch plz
    Archmage Atlantis: Well, the solstice has generally held a position of a symbol of the rebirth of life
    Archmage Atlantis: Celebrated in some fashion my most Northern hemisphere faiths since a long time
    Archmage Atlantis: When I was reminded that the southern hemisphere is a mirrow image, it led me to wonder if celebrations are also reversed by the native Australians.....I don't know
    Archmage Atlantis: Then it led me to think that as our descendents travel to the stars, many different perspectives will be held by those at different stars and different biologies
    Archmage Atlantis: Frankly, I can't keep all the different times in the US straight :)
    Archmage Atlantis: Much less the wide variety we dream of
    Geoff Baily: Inspiring thinking of our descendents going ot th stars!
    Geoff Baily: to the*
    Archmage Atlantis: Just realistic, to me......they may not look like us, but we don't look like those who preceded us
    Archmage Atlantis: We choose each moment
    Archmage Atlantis: As individuals
    Archmage Atlantis: As a species
    Archmage Atlantis: As a planet
    Geoff Baily: ;)
    Archmage Atlantis: I am having many choices in my RL to make, it has me waxing philosophical.........sorry about tht
    sophia Placebo: :)
    Geoff Baily: lucky to have choices?
    Geoff Baily: the sun
    Archmage Atlantis: Yes, I would rather chose than to be told (stubborn as they call it)
    Geoff Baily: ;)
    Geoff Baily: in order to have choices you have to have information about the options
    Archmage Atlantis: Had to think about that one a minute Geoff......yes, without information it is not choice, it is chance
    sophia Placebo: it seems to me that though many would say they are happy they can choose , they dont look much happy at the moment they do choose , lots of burden comes with some choices
    Geoff Baily: ;)
    Archmage Atlantis: Agree Sophia
    Geoff Baily: the information is incomplete in practice usually!
    sophia Placebo: it is strange how we are happy for having something that put some stress on us
    Geoff Baily: without information you may not even be aware of the possibility of there being a choice
    Geoff Baily: ie unaware
    Geoff Baily: yes sophia risk is often fun!
    Archmage Atlantis: Seems to me there are different emotional approaches to the incompleteness of infomation
    Archmage Atlantis: Or rather different outlooks
    Archmage Atlantis: To embrace the uncertainty of the outcome as a thrill
    Archmage Atlantis: To shy awary and hide from it
    Archmage Atlantis: To recognize the risk and accept it as a resonsibility
    Archmage Atlantis: Sometimes all of the above, and probably other outlooks that just don't come to mind right now, or are yet to be experience
    Geoff Baily: making decisions is often very difficult ;)
    sophia Placebo: To shy awary and hide from it, can you say more about this arch ?
    Archmage Atlantis: I will have to think on that, Sophia, I have to get ready for another gathering. Bye Sophia, Bye Geoff......I hope Yak's av is enjoying his tea while he is away :)
