    Act 1 Scene 1


    Lawrence makes an excellent observation on language, which is fairly important as our primary means of communciation:

    Lawrence Vyceratops: For instance, we rarely define the terms we use in speech...
    Lawrence Vyceratops: Although we all have access to dictionaries, we seldom check the definitions between one another.

    Act 1 Scene 2


    Act 1 Scene 3


    Agatha asks a great question, which didn't seem to have an answer:

    Act 1 Scene 4


    Calvino makes some excellent points concerning the idea of consciousness and self:

    Calvino Rabeni: A lot more is known about it than in past times, at least on the level of physical correlates of cognition
    Calvino Rabeni: It is a little like physics looking inside matter, or figuring out what happened during the big bang
    Calvino Rabeni: Because the introspection and observation are famously difficult
    Calvino Rabeni: given that the "instrument" is slower than the thing being observed (in classic introspection)
    Calvino Rabeni: You have a dream, form a concept, in almost an instant, then how can the slow process of thinking form accurate models of that, since it is itself affected
    Calvino Rabeni: Rational thinking, formation of ideas and concepts vetted against social considerations and history, is a slow process
    Calvino Rabeni: too slow to "catch perception in the act"
    Calvino Rabeni: memory is unreliable, many aspects of mind are not directly observable to consciousness
    Calvino Rabeni: it is just a pretty poor "instrument" for self observation, for various reasons
    Calvino Rabeni: Getting scientific instruments into the task will help and be influential, in the future
    Calvino Rabeni: I think we're at the beginning of a new phase - paradigm shift or whatever -

    Act 2 Scene 1


    Bolonath gives a great answer to the question of what is spirituality?

    Bolonath Crystal: for me spirituality is an efford to understand the world including the self in a non-conceptual way. or in other words: to find 'truth'

    Act 2 Scene 2


    Just what *can* we depend on Eliza? :)

    Eliza Madrigal: Sometimes we sense we can't depend/trust on our mere selves, so we then depend on structures... that won't do either it seems ...

    stevenaia speaks of that most important of emotions...love:

    stevenaia Michinaga: there is always the first true love of a certain type that define itself unlike any other
    stevenaia Michinaga: sometimes you don;t even know until it your heart beaks... and a lifelong understanding is learned

    Storm gives one benefit (among many) to PaB:

    Storm Nordwind: I rather think that the actual practice in PaB spurs people to think about things in their lives in new and different ways...

    Act 3 Scene 3


    The talk turns to holographic universes, which Mic knows something about:

    Mickorod Renard: the whole idea of a holographic universe is just a concept,,and it works in practice to explain some effects like gravity too,,but no one really has a good grasp of it yet
