    The Guardian for this meeting was stevenaia Michinaga. The comments are by stevenaia Michinaga.


    stevenaia Michinaga: hi, I was hoping i'd run into you soon
    Pila Mulligan: hi Steve
    Pila Mulligan: how are you?
    stevenaia Michinaga: I am good, I have my sister-in-law by my side from Detroit
    Pila Mulligan: hi Sis :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: She says hello
    Pila Mulligan: Nice to almost make your acquaintance
    Pila Mulligan: is this her first look at Second Life?
    stevenaia Michinaga: I have a quick iChing process question for you after reading about Mick's boxes, it relates to the sticks vs coins
    Pila Mulligan: ok
    stevenaia Michinaga: she has an account but a very show computer
    Pila Mulligan: hi Rosecrucian
    stevenaia Michinaga: did not use it much
    Rosecrucian Roeth: Good evening all.
    stevenaia Michinaga: hello Rose
    Pila Mulligan: welcome :)
    Rosecrucian Roeth: Could you please explain "FreeAphrodite"?
    Pila Mulligan: Aphrodite's avi account is stuck in a Linden Lab purgatory
    Pila Mulligan: she cannot sign on
    Rosecrucian Roeth: Yes??
    Pila Mulligan: yes :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: Aphrodite is a friend who is stuck in Sl limbo and cannot log off
    Pila Mulligan: for several days now
    Rosecrucian Roeth: And the reasoning?
    Pila Mulligan: none known
    Pila Mulligan: (*
    stevenaia Michinaga: a bug in the simulator
    stevenaia Michinaga: happened to another friend here recently
    Rosecrucian Roeth: Ah, so SL is not perfect?
    Pila Mulligan: hi Rhi
    Pila Mulligan: SL is not perfect yet
    stevenaia Michinaga: hello Rhi
    Rosecrucian Roeth: OK.
    Rhiannon Dragoone: hi Pila
    Rhiannon Dragoone: hi Steve
    stevenaia Michinaga: If I may complete my question to Pila before you all arrived
    Pila Mulligan: :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: it relates to my iChing practice
    Pila Mulligan: ok
    stevenaia Michinaga: is it best to throw coins and then use the sticks to "lay out" the results? or can you throw the sticks?
    Rhiannon Dragoone: so we are discussing the i Ching?
    stevenaia Michinaga: we can
    Pila Mulligan: you can do it however you wish -- the sticks were originally a method to record a coin toss, one at a time -- a stick for each toss (as opposed to writing it down on paper)
    Rosecrucian Roeth: My apologies, Rhi, my back was to you and I did not see you arrive. Greetings.
    stevenaia Michinaga: Pila hosts an iChing discussion group once or twice a month
    Rhiannon Dragoone: hi Rose
    Pila Mulligan: however, people also noticed that you can use just the sticks to obtain a result, skipping the coin toss altogether
    stevenaia Michinaga: he has many students
    Pila Mulligan: so however you wish :)
    Rosecrucian Roeth: I am not very familiar with the i Ching.
    Pila Mulligan: it is an old Chines philosophy book
    Rhiannon Dragoone: it is for divination and I've herd it can be very accurate
    Rhiannon Dragoone: And even if not, it brings out a connection with your subconscious and super conscious minds
    Rosecrucian Roeth: Yes, that I know yet it is, as I recall very interesting, once you get into it.
    Pila Mulligan: the latter is my approach more than divination, Rhi
    Pila Mulligan: as a contemplation tool
    Pila Mulligan: http://www.iching.ws/
    Rhiannon Dragoone: hi SophiaSharon!
    Pila Mulligan: hi sharon
    stevenaia Michinaga: hi Sophia
    SophiaSharon Larnia: hi everyone :)
    Pila Mulligan: nice to see you
    Rosecrucian Roeth: I must admit that I have taken a position that is quite uncomfortable as far as seeing new arrivals is concerned.
    SophiaSharon Larnia: thanks nice to see you too! :)
    Rosecrucian Roeth: Geed evening Sophia.
    Rhiannon Dragoone: maybe you should move across the fountain, Rose
    Pila Mulligan: feel free to reposition yourself Rosecrucian
    stevenaia Michinaga: I use the mini-map to see when someone approaches
    Rhiannon Dragoone: hi Dasi!
    Rhiannon Dragoone: i used my radar on my emDash
    Rosecrucian Roeth: Mayhaps in the future, for now the suspense is thrilling?!
    SophiaSharon Larnia: hi Dasi
    Pila Mulligan: hi Dasi



    Pila Mulligan: Shanti
    Rosecrucian Roeth: Sometimes it is better not to know who is arriving.
    Rosecrucian Roeth: Good evening Dasi.

    I IM'd Dasi but she continued away

    A discussion began about Aphrodite's "condition"


    Rosecrucian Roeth: That comment was not meant to be offensive.
    Pila Mulligan: :)
    Rosecrucian Roeth: Is it possible to find a way to free Aphrodite?
    Rhiannon Dragoone: what's that about, Rose?
    Pila Mulligan: petition Linden Labs?
    Rosecrucian Roeth: Or is she at the mercy of SL?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: Aphrodite filed a ticket
    stevenaia Michinaga: if the area restarts , that will free you as well
    Pila Mulligan: you can still see her stuck avi named n the mini-map
    stevenaia Michinaga: but we have no control over that
    Rhiannon Dragoone: you mean her avi got stuck?
    Pila Mulligan: yes
    stevenaia Michinaga: yes
    Rosecrucian Roeth: Can you explain "filed a ticket'?
    Pila Mulligan: now she cannot log in
    stevenaia Michinaga: SL limbo
    Rhiannon Dragoone: ohhh
    Pila Mulligan: submitted a help request to linden labs
    SophiaSharon Larnia: sent a complaint to linden lab Roseecrucian
    Rosecrucian Roeth: I do not understand. Did she do something wrong?
    Rhiannon Dragoone: that happened to me once and to a gf of mine, who had to come as an alt for a week
    stevenaia Michinaga: no it;s a big
    SophiaSharon Larnia: no she didn't
    Rhiannon Dragoone: i got out of it by turning off my computer for an hour
    stevenaia Michinaga: not punishment
    Rosecrucian Roeth: Sophia, you said she sent a complaint to SL?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: she said she did
    stevenaia Michinaga: yes, the Lindens
    Rhiannon Dragoone: how long has she been stuck?
    Rosecrucian Roeth: Explain Steven.
    SophiaSharon Larnia: over a week?
    Rhiannon Dragoone: I've heard of it happening for a week at the most
    Rosecrucian Roeth: Sorry. explain stevenaia.
    SophiaSharon Larnia: hmm'
    Rosecrucian Roeth: Wish I could type properly!
    stevenaia Michinaga: the Lindens own Second life, they created the bug that trapped Aphro's avatar here
    stevenaia Michinaga: Linden Labs
    Rosecrucian Roeth: Bug?
    stevenaia Michinaga: programming bug that froze her
    SophiaSharon Larnia: probably
    stevenaia Michinaga: I don't know much more than that
    Rhiannon Dragoone: well, usually you just severe your connection with the Internet for a while and it goes away
    Rosecrucian Roeth: I find this rather troubling, unless I have missed something that she may have done incorrectly.
    Rhiannon Dragoone: That's how i got out of it
    SophiaSharon Larnia: she tried that and it didn't
    SophiaSharon Larnia: its sl
    Rhiannon Dragoone is happy she has an alt that is identical to her for just these problems
    Rosecrucian Roeth: Has she approached the powers that be, or anyone else approached them?
    stevenaia Michinaga: yes
    SophiaSharon Larnia: well, im very tired and stopped by to say hello :))
    Rosecrucian Roeth: And?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: hi Lucinda :)
    Rhiannon Dragoone: One temp solution would be to have an identical alt, then your old name as your display name
    SophiaSharon Larnia: bye all, have a great night!!!
    Pila Mulligan: nice to see you Sharon, sleep well
    Rhiannon Dragoone: nite Sophia
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Happy Thanksgiving!
    SophiaSharon Larnia: tx!!
    Rosecrucian Roeth: NIte Sophia.
    Lucinda Lavender: Hi Sophia:)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: yes happy turkey day don't eat too much
    stevenaia Michinaga: night SS


    SophiaSharon Larnia departs, Lucinda Lavender arrives

    stevenaia Michinaga: hello Lucinda
    stevenaia Michinaga: she does have an alt who visits us
    Rosecrucian Roeth: Oh, forgot, yes Happy Thanksgiving to all of you US'ers, and I do luv ya!!
    Lucinda Lavender: hi steve:),Pila,Rhiannon,Rosecrucian
    Pila Mulligan: hi Lucinda
    Pila Mulligan: thanks Rose
    Rosecrucian Roeth: Hi Lucinda.
    Pila Mulligan: same to you
    Rhiannon Dragoone: i know it's not the same thing to have an alt, but it helps
    Rhiannon Dragoone: hi Lucinda
    Rosecrucian Roeth: I am still concerned about Aphrodite, would it have anything to do with her name or just an anomaly?
    stevenaia Michinaga: an anomaly
    Rhiannon Dragoone: it's an anomaly; Rose; it happened to me and it happened to a woman i know named peaches
    Rhiannon Dragoone: And both of us are heavily invested in our names and appearances so it was a problem
    Rosecrucian Roeth: I must say I have come to havoc a distaste for ther name anomaly. It seems to be a reason for many things that do not make sense.
    stevenaia Michinaga: I'm sure Aphrodite will appreciate your concern Rose, but she is doing everything she can to return. It does give one an appreciation for who they are
    Rosecrucian Roeth: I have an understanding of many things in this world that happen, and many of them I have a distaste for because there is no reasonable explanation for them.....but then again is not the whole subject of existence similar?
    stevenaia Michinaga: yes, there are parallels
    Rhiannon Dragoone: I've never been stuck in heaven trying to get back to earth though
    Rhiannon Dragoone: or would the analogy be vice versa?
    stevenaia Michinaga: one person's reality is similar to one avatar's SL reality


    Rosecrucian Roeth: Perhaps a parallel universe that may create havoc here when and if it happens to sneak in if only for a brief time.
    Rosecrucian Roeth: Is SL t ereality or the other one we go back to every evening?
    Rosecrucian Roeth: I do wish I could improve my typing!
    stevenaia Michinaga: Before SL I would think the same of my dreams as being a different part of my reality
    stevenaia Michinaga: now there are two parts (or three)
    Rosecrucian Roeth: I must admit that being in SL, it is possible to do that which may not be possible in RL, yet there is still the reality that we all must return to , but each of us must determine which it is.
    stevenaia Michinaga: which can we say is more or less real.. just different parts of how we see
    Rosecrucian Roeth: Well said Stevenaia.
    Lucinda Lavender: sorry for composing and erasing but this is my lot...I just do it when I notice I have not really composed the idea...
    Rosecrucian Roeth: iF i COULD ONLY TYPE!!
    stevenaia Michinaga: Aphrodite is an interesting example of us observing someone's frozen reality
    stevenaia Michinaga: I do the same often Lucinda
    Lucinda Lavender: maybe we are all practicing...seeing
    Rosecrucian Roeth: I find her situation very frustrating.
    stevenaia Michinaga: does frustration give you special insight into a situation Rose?
    Rhiannon Dragoone: oh, i'm in IM with my friend who was in Aphrodite's situation
    stevenaia Michinaga: hello Tess
    Rhiannon Dragoone: She's telling me how she got out!
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Rose, please listen so you can tell Aphrodite
    Rosecrucian Roeth: We all see in different ways, whether it is physical or mental.
    stevenaia Michinaga: nice to see you again
    Tess Aristocrat: hello ã‹¡
    Rhiannon Dragoone: type in as last location aqua or pool
    Rhiannon Dragoone: you will land in water
    Rosecrucian Roeth: HI Tess.
    Rhiannon Dragoone: then you can tp home
    Pila Mulligan: hi Tess
    Rhiannon Dragoone: hi Tess!
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Rose, did you get that for Aphrodite?
    stevenaia Michinaga: I will Im her with that, see if it helps
    Rosecrucian Roeth: Frustration I suppose can give one special insight into a situation, although I am not sure it would help a lot.
    Lucinda Lavender: Hi tess:) I like your statement about all being possible till proven otherwise...
    Rhiannon Dragoone: thanks steve
    Rhiannon Dragoone: it sounds weird, but it worked for Peaches
    Tess Aristocrat: thanks, I think that allows us to be unlimited in learning
    Rosecrucian Roeth: I hope that works, thanks Rhi.
    Rhiannon Dragoone: i think we can live in a world of unlimited possibilities or we can dwell on our limitations
    Rhiannon Dragoone: We attract what we focus on
    Rhiannon Dragoone: hi Paradise!
    Pila Mulligan: hi Paradise


    Paradise arrives standing directly over Rhiannon's head

    Rhiannon Dragoone: interesting view up ur skirt, Paradise
    Rhiannon Dragoone: and nice sharp heels.
    Paradise Tennant: hiya pila rhia lucinda stevenaia :))
    stevenaia Michinaga: paradise needs to rezz
    Paradise Tennant: tess :))
    stevenaia Michinaga: hello Paradise
    Rosecrucian Roeth: True, Rhi, but then again there are many circumstances which lead us in the direction that we take in life, and those are directions we are given in childhood, and we must learn to either accept them or try others.
    Rhiannon Dragoone: well, we can accept what we're programmed to do, or we can self program
    Rosecrucian Roeth: Hello Paradise. I was typing and am not able to multi-task much.
    stevenaia Michinaga: I often think about "Fate" and who serves it to us
    stevenaia Michinaga: and the choices we take
    Rhiannon Dragoone: oh, and Peaches says Aphrodite should check her email, that's how the lindens get back to you
    stevenaia Michinaga: the questions we ask and the answers provided
    Paradise Tennant: hiya rose :)
    Rosecrucian Roeth: Fate is overrated as far as I am concerned. We do have limitations placed on us as we grow up, yet we also have the abilities to rep[lace these limitations as we grow.
    Rhiannon Dragoone: steve, it gets served to us by others by default, by ourselves if we take charge of our lives
    Pila Mulligan: hi Hana
    Hana Furlough: Hi all!
    Rhiannon Dragoone: hi hana!
    Hana Furlough: Nice to see you all this evening
    Rosecrucian Roeth: Hello Hana, welcome to our world.
    stevenaia Michinaga: which brings me back to the iChing... which assists in such matters
    Hana Furlough: :)


    Paradise Tennant: hiya hana gtsy
    Rosecrucian Roeth: I must explore the iching more.
    Lucinda Lavender: Hi Hana
    Tess Aristocrat: About fate, I think it's like Forrest Gump says, it may be a little of both...
    Rosecrucian Roeth: A box of chocolates!
    Lucinda Lavender: LL is eating salad...
    Tess Aristocrat: a path is shown to you and you decide which way to go..
    Lucinda Lavender: Tess that is how it feels to me
    Tess Aristocrat: ã‹¡
    Rosecrucian Roeth: Tess, are you insinuating the path we area shown as we grow up or as adults?\
    Pila Mulligan: There are these two young fish swimming along, and they happen to meet an older fish swimming the other way, who nods at them and says, "Morning, boys, how's the water?" And the two young fish swim on for a bit, and then eventually one of them looks over at the other and goes, "What the hell is water?"
    Rhiannon Dragoone: you make your own paths or you get on the one given to you
    stevenaia Michinaga: yes, but how much thought you give the choice is always up to you
    Tess Aristocrat: All our life
    stevenaia Michinaga: smiles at Pila
    Tess Aristocrat: Life can be amazingly simple or as hard as we choose to make it.
    Rosecrucian Roeth: There are paths that are shown to us in each and every year of our life, and they change constantly. Which ones we take is determined by what knowledge we have at the time we must decide the proper path to take.
    Rosecrucian Roeth: What path we may take is determined by the way our life has progressed to that point.
    Pila Mulligan: a lot of the energy and elements of life that affect us are not readily visible, like water to the fish -- part of taking control of your life may be learning to yield
    stevenaia Michinaga: or, we can pause and think to gain additional knowledge
    Tess Aristocrat: Well, or we can always choose to do something different.
    Rhiannon Dragoone: we are surrounded by energy fields, and we can access them or they can lay fallow
    stevenaia Michinaga: then decide
    Rosecrucian Roeth: The choice is always our own, based on the experiences we have had to that point in our life.
    stevenaia Michinaga: decisions can also be made in a moment of emptiness... this give a place for the new idea to arise to assist us in the decision, where creativity comes from
    Rosecrucian Roeth: The one thing we cannot do is to say that we would have done something different in an earlier time, because the information we had then is not the same as we have now.
    stevenaia Michinaga: from a pause, like what we do hare every 15 minutes, give ourselves a "moment"
    Tess Aristocrat: Example: I was raised by a father that yelled and cussed and whipped. I could have simply continued in that family tradition, as we learn to parent from our parents, however, I chose to never subject my children to that, because of how it felt.
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Tess, right, there is the situation and how you respond to it
    Rosecrucian Roeth: I like where I am now, because I have learned many things in the years I have lived, I do not have all the answers nor do I want to have all the answers. Life is learning.
    Tess Aristocrat: nods
    stevenaia Michinaga: like saying "i will sleep on that" and the choice presents itself to take
    Rhiannon Dragoone: I left my abusive father at 12, was a prostitute for 3 years, and then, with the help of an older woman, got into a college at 15
    Rhiannon Dragoone: I'd be most likely dead by now had i not chosen my responses to my circumstances
    Paradise Tennant: ouch .. so much hardship so young ..
    stevenaia Michinaga: nods
    Tess Aristocrat: I love the quote; 'If you choose not to decide, you'd still have made a choice' ~Rush
    Rosecrucian Roeth: Rhi, I respect you for what you have done for yourself.
    Rhiannon Dragoone: ty, Rose
    Pila Mulligan: it seems to me we feel our way through things at a personal level, and we remember and follow whatever seems to work
    Rhiannon Dragoone: not everyone does for the choice I've made, but without making them, i wouldn't be here
    Tess Aristocrat: I left home at age 16...ran off with the hippies ã‹¡
    Rosecrucian Roeth: You have a strength that many do not have, Rhi. The most important part of life is to respect and love yourself first, and then you find you can respect and love everyone else as well.
    Tess Aristocrat: Rose, so true ã‹¡
    Rhiannon Dragoone nods
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Tess, is that anything like running off to join the circus?
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Rose, thank you for your words; ppl look down on me cuz i've been a prostitute and a stripper, but i have a Ph.D. now and am teaching part time at a college, and i think they should respect how i got there
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Anyway, i was just agreeing with Tess that its not your circumstances, it's how you choose to react to them
    stevenaia Michinaga: judgements like that only serve those who judge
    Lucinda Lavender: This is an interesting thing to think about. I too asked to leave my home at age 13.
    Rosecrucian Roeth: Rhi, I never look down on anybody other than those who look down on the world with destain.
    Rhiannon Dragoone: steve,yeah
    Pila Mulligan: actually, in the end, the judge you face is just yourself
    Rosecrucian Roeth: My typing is disgraceful!!
    Rhiannon Dragoone: yeah, only look down upon those who look down on others
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Rose, i won't look down on you cuz of ur typing


    Paradise Tennant: smiles at rhia ..and rose and the looking up :)
    Rosecrucian Roeth: I have a relative who went through a similar situation and pulled herself up Aden became very successful adn then fell in with someone from the 60's and has started to deteriorate. I do not know what to do.
    Rosecrucian Roeth: I was so proud of what she was doing adn nowit is starting to unravel.
    Paradise Tennant: aspiration .. visualize then well and in balance in your mind :
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Rose, nothing you can do but support her; she's the one who has to find her way out
    Hana Furlough: must run
    Hana Furlough: a good evening to you all
    Pila Mulligan: bye Hana
    Hana Furlough: and happy thanksgiving!
    Rhiannon Dragoone: thanks for coming, hana
    Paradise Tennant: take are hana nice to see you
    Lucinda Lavender: Bye Hana:)

    Paradise Tennant: yes

    Rosecrucian Roeth: Me from Brampton, just outside of the centre of the universe :>)
    Paradise Tennant: not so far from the centre of the universe :)
    Tess Aristocrat: Rose, there is nothing you can do about your Aunt but accept her path.
    Pila Mulligan: :) rl neighbors
    Rosecrucian Roeth: I must go soon, I do have to go to work on TO in themorning.
    Rhiannon Dragoone: TO?
    Rosecrucian Roeth: Hey Tess, I know we are hoping that she will come back to reality.
    Rosecrucian Roeth: Hey, she did it once and it was worse then.
    Rosecrucian Roeth: Short form for Toronto.
    Rhiannon Dragoone: oh
    Rosecrucian Roeth: YOu know like LA?
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Isn't Toronto where Superman works, now? I swear Metropolis in Smallville looks a lot like Toronto
    Paradise Tennant: smiles :) just like LA :)
    Rhiannon Dragoone: yeah, just like LA
    Paradise Tennant: yes !
    Rosecrucian Roeth: Probably, Rhia, we have been standing in for US cities on the movies for many years.
    Rhiannon Dragoone: And heck, in Kung fu: the legend continues, LA looked a lot like Toronto
    Lucinda Lavender: working on a list of things...must go for now.
    Rosecrucian Roeth: Maybe someday there should be a reality show called "Was this movie shot in Toronto or the USA?"
    Pila Mulligan: bye Lucinda
    Rhiannon Dragoone: ok, LUcinda
