    For those who seek through play the wisdom of being, Ari scribbles...

    Act 1 Scene 1

    In this scene the primary players are Bertrum and Susi. Bertrum wonders about the benefits of technology and Susi answers:

    Susi Alcott: well; time limits much human life ...
    Susi Alcott: if all should use much time for the heating shelter and so
    Susi Alcott: and couldn't have contact to other people so easily
    Susi Alcott: that wouldn't give pleasure to nowadays people
    Susi Alcott: but I believe in such imporvements prefere to come
    Susi Alcott: that many things shall become more natural way; that the technology shall be more gentle
    Susi Alcott: and that it shall help also the nature
    Susi Alcott: that people shall come more capable to help nature too
    Susi Alcott: planting trees and so
    Susi Alcott: on the needed areas
    Susi Alcott: well, have much faith to human will and mind

    As a firm believer myself that the benefits of technology will outweigh its dangers, I found Susi's words both profound and inspiring.

    Act 1 Scene 2

    Sophia plays one of the starring roles in this scene as she seeks a balance between seeing and being:

    SophiaSharon Larnia: well, it is my baseline exaserbated by the change in season, but I have been doing to much thinking about seeing being, being seeing...merry go round

    I will admit to spending a lot of time on that merry-go-round myself, and believe Sophia and I have a lot of company. Pema makes his entrance, staying just long enough to drop a pearl of wisdom from his catchbag of sayings:

    Pema Pera: Buddha had a nice image, of tuning a guitar (or some such instrument :-)
    Pema Pera: too much tension or too little tension, and you don't get nice music; you have to find the right tension

    With the help of Eliza and Susi,:

    Susi Alcott: so; nobody is outsider completely, even if not knowingly in connection
    Eliza Madrigal: The only way to stay with have compassion/not turn to breathe...
    Susi Alcott: it's just a question of how much one 'communicates' with surrounding
    Eliza Madrigal: and to allow Being to affect it...we *can't*
    Eliza Madrigal: Susi, yes....not being disconnected
    Susi Alcott: when I learned that difference to be true, I wondered the reason to that
    SophiaSharon Larnia: but we are being at least imho
    SophiaSharon Larnia: we are the created and the creators

    I believe Sophia finds the right tension.

    Act 1 Scene 3 & 4 missing.

    Act 2 Scene 1

    Wol, Tarmel, and Fael are featured actors in this scene. When Wol comments, "With this question, all hope of a serious and solemn discussion was lost!", I really begin to pay attention, and was rewarded with some real gems:

    Fael Illyar: the more you try to deny something, the stronger that something becomes.
    Wol Euler: much of early culture and most of religion can be read as men attempting to control women's sexuality.
    Fael Illyar: That's just the way things have been. No helping that. Can only change what is now
    Tarmel Udimo: I think there is something intriniscally male and something instrinically female
    Tarmel Udimo: and yes we have both aspects or can cultivate both aspects
    Fael Illyar: intrinsically, yes, but everyone, male and female has both intrinsics.
    Fael Illyar: just te strengths differ
    Wol Euler: and which of them we allow ourselves to express
    Tarmel Udimo: and these differences are important and when developed to their highest power can produce enlighten beings in both genders

    Act 2 Scene 2

    This scene is full of thought provoking comments such as:

    Pema Pera: sometimes when you want to express ideas that seem really simple, it can take some time . . . .
    quen Oh: the more simple the more difficult to express, as you want to express it simple to do it justice?
    Pema Pera: of course, in daily life, if you want to switch on a light, you have to reach for the light switch
    Pema Pera: the best way to be with someone is not to expect anything, but just to be together
    Eliza Madrigal: when one is a portal, everyting is a portal

    quen Oh then wonders:
    The portal analogy initiated some thinking here: are things passing through us? And what about the difficulty to express Pema was talking about earlier? We can experience and think so much, but to think we need 'forms' which we constantly inaptly (re)create... We are perhaps imperfect projection screens... Too often mistake the projection for reality... And to describe and express what you see on your inner projection screen in a precise way seems even more difficult. Isn't 'expecting' or 'reaching' also not some form of projecting your own ideas?

    Act 2 Scenes 3 & 4 missing.

    Act 3 Scenes 1 & 2 missing.

    Act 3 Scene 3

    The scene begins with a nod to quietness, which all who know me know I am a master of.

    Scathach Rhiadra: very quiet here tonight:)
    Qt Core: yes, but sometimes quiet is good ;'-)
    Scathach Rhiadra nods:)
    Qt Core: np, we just quieted ourself after (at least for me) a hurried day
    Fael Illyar listens to the silence.

    The discussion then moved to the importance of orientation when contemplating or meditating, and the basis for its importance and evolution.

    Pila gave this link which is a good example of not judging a book by its cover:

    Pila Mulligan: my favorite UK thing this week was the Scot lady singing on the TV show
    Pila Mulligan: I got tears in me eyes watching the videono on You tube
    Pila Mulligan:
    Pila Mulligan: she comes on stage looking so unlikely as a singer, then her beuatiful voice makes a mockery of the mockery

    Act 3 Scene 4

    Pema spends some time explaining the purpose of PaB to a newcomer, and later tries an experiment with everyone:

    Pema Pera: seriously, I'd love to hear what happens if you try to let Being see without any vantage point
    Pema Pera: and independent of your body or even your mind
