    Pema in PaB Chronicles by Adams #4 A




    As comfortable as you have made me with SL and PaB friendships there are still things in my life, my past and my thinking that have not fit in yet.  Perhaps some day I can relate to the group some of those examples.  Some in the group may know what a live blade coming at you does to time. Most would know the equivalent of being on stage in front of 10,000 and hitting the wrong B# and then just smiling the smile of joy.   I have the greatest of inner needs to discuss out of body mishaps and flukes with somebody that has done same.  Are we ready to discuss parallel universes/realities. Or speak of Magic.

    There are simple, complex and chaos levels. We always discuss the simple.  We edge up to the complex at the end of the hour.  When will be explore chaos, the chaotic states, the over whelming of the rules, the overrunning of 'your' borders.

    Guardian of the Void 

    genesis Zhangsun: I can tell you what I think was the inspiration behind the Guardian name
    genesis Zhangsun: is that what you are asking?
    Adams Rubble: That would be great
    genesis Zhangsun: Well the person who made the introduction to Pema possible was a girl who worked at the Cafe, who is a friend of mine
    genesis Zhangsun: in RL
    genesis Zhangsun: she is an artist
    genesis Zhangsun: before Pema left Berkeley
    genesis Zhangsun: I asked her
    genesis Zhangsun: to draw something for Pema as a gift
    genesis Zhangsun: that drawing was of a raven
    genesis Zhangsun: she called it "Guardian of the Void"
    Adams Rubble: :)
    genesis Zhangsun: this was around the same time Guardian emerged


    Genesis in PaB Chronicles by Adams #5 



    (Adams): Zeroith Time. I ask Gen whether that concept too has changed for her


    genesis Zhangsun: this remains still quite mysterious to me...I had one of my strongest experiences in PaB related to this and it probably changed the course of my entire life and yet it alludes me still
    genesis Zhangsun: I am definitely more aware of its presence
    genesis Zhangsun: since I had my most signficant experience with it
    genesis Zhangsun: and I think that is making small differences in my life
    genesis Zhangsun: the significant experience I am referring to is walking out on the Bar
    Adams Rubble: I hadn't realized it was connected to zeroith time
    genesis Zhangsun: yes the day before I walked out
    genesis Zhangsun: I was again with Pema in RL
    genesis Zhangsun: I had an experiences of "time"
    genesis Zhangsun: somehow I just "got" that it wasn't real in the way I thought it was before
    genesis Zhangsun: my whole presence with my life changed in that moment
    genesis Zhangsun: and when I walked into the Bar
    genesis Zhangsun: I knew I wasn't supposed to be there
    genesis Zhangsun:
    that I was traveling a stream of time which didn't belong to me
    Adams Rubble: That is a powerful experience. Thank you for sharing

    To preserve the fertile void 


    Adams Rubble: Pema is helping us to test our skills--to learn to fly where we have never flown before :)
    genesis Zhangsun: yes :)
    genesis Zhangsun:
    like a raven into the void :)
    Adams Rubble: It is interesting that we have such different perspectives on things and at the same time so similar
    Adams Rubble: yes, hehe
    Adams Rubble: I hadn't caught the meaning
    genesis Zhangsun:
    ravens are mythically messenger birds
    genesis Zhangsun: they bring news from the "other side"
    Adams Rubble: ah
    Adams Rubble: so this one is going the other way?
    genesis Zhangsun: no this one is not going in either direction, it protect the void
    genesis Zhangsun: the place beyond form
    genesis Zhangsun: the place of potentialities
    genesis Zhangsun:
    we are those protectors
    genesis Zhangsun:
    the Guardians
    Adams Rubble: :)

    genesis Zhangsun: making sure no one form starts to dominate
    genesis Zhangsun: whether as an idea, as a person,
    genesis Zhangsun:
    to preserve the fertile void
    genesis Zhangsun: :)
    Adams Rubble: :)
