Baker Blinker Blog Book IV: Jeogeot II 01c (Oct/Nov 2009 03 of 03)


Loose Thoughts…

Attempted a switch of themes for this blog, and after activating several decided to stick with the current one (Rounded). My main complaint still about this theme is that there’s a gap between the header and the main body of texts/links. But the advantages outweigh the disadvantages. Coming in a fairly close second were, let’s see, Inove and, maybe especially Silver is the New Black. See how the head and body are much closer in these 2 examples? (note: you have to be logged into WordPress to see the examples).

Chilbo:
I am now an official resident of Chilbo. Not sure what that entails, except that I filled out Chilbo Community Land Use Application and also, I *think*, a Chilbo Community Building Project Membership Application. Have to double check on that last one, because I had to fill out 2 versions of the first, I know, for various reasons all of my own fault, basically. More overall SL issues. I have been welcomed by the founder herself, a great honor. Always nice to have an active leader.

Early on in my experiences, I will give some very preliminary insights: I don’t think I could have been a member of the Chilbo group and Yapland group at once, since both create a lot of notecards. Both have active leadership, if you will. Yapland is very art oriented, although Kelly collaborated with a number of other SL organizations such as Bookstacks — there was actually a lot going on there that I let pass me by, being the introvert I am and avoiding crowds whenever possible. And the same would apply to Chilbo, *except* Chilbo is a much more diverse and larger community than Yapland, although it has a strong art component as well. However, if you look at the overall *mainland* sections of the SL Art Galleries Map (each gallery is located through a kiosk provided free by Sasun Steinbeck’s marvelous system) you’ll see the unique nature of both. There are simply not many diverse clusters of art galleries in these locations, with Chilbo and Yapland representing two of the largest, if not the *two largest*. But Chilbo is perhaps a much better fit for me because of all the other things going on there. The Chilbo Road Press acts as an excellent information portal to the community, and provides me, as well, with a type of window to the “outside inner” world. In other words, it keeps me from being totally enclosed in my own mythology, although I want that development to always take priority over shared projects. Just a personal preference — I have a lot of things going on both up front, blog-wise, and also behind the scenes. I think Chilbo may act, then — again for me — as a collective eye drawn to the attention of this and that, which I follow. I believe I respect the basic ideas of Chilbo enough, centered by that strong and active leadership I already mentioned, to trust that this eye is turning in profitable and valuable directions for me as well. I want to share this vision, in other words. Now how active I can be with hands on, virtually speaking, community building within Chilbo itself, the actual town, I’m much more uncertain about. Probably not a lot; my center in that respect is Sunklands presently.

I don’t want to give up renting to become a premium member again either; it seems to me, according to my calculations, that you have to really own at *least* 8192 square meters, a full 1/8th of a sim, for the Linden tier fee system to clearly become more advantageous than renting from the now many excellent and established rental businesses in SL. I’ve dealt with a number of ’em now, with no problem in the least. No land yanked out from under me in the middle of the night. As many people/avatars have correctly pointed out, we’re renting from Linden Labs through their tier system. Actually, the most problems I’ve encountered in “renting” have been from the larger estates such as Azure Islands and Otherland, perhaps queerly. But if you rent on the mainland through established companies, then you should have no problem. The basic (mainland) infrastructure should remain intact — I’ve heard stories to the contrary but I haven’t seen them acted out in person. Estates? Different story, unfortunately, although I think old version Azure Islands and, perhaps especially, the original version of Otherland (which largely remains intact despite a change of ownership, surprisingly) provided the best foundation for what a virtual reality such as Second Life *should* look like, ideally. Mainland, in comparison, is quite a mess, especially outside the oldest regions and even within. The double prim 1024 parcel basis of Nautilus City is, in essence, the idea of homestead regions turned inside out, which I don’t think works at all. The Nautilus City concept, I mean — homesteads are much closer, to me again, to an ideal virtual reality, which needs *space*, dammit (!) between structures. Castles, you know, are fine, unless they, say, take up a whole damn 4096 or 8192 or larger parcel. A lot of this is LL’s fault, of course, and I know much of it is out of their hands now. Much of it, though, is the fault of premium members who don’t understand the concept of, er, (say) *skyboxes*. 🙂 And I’m guilty as well — look at my Rubi builds in the archives of this blog. There’s a balance of SL as a place of experimentation — parcels as simply sandboxes, in essence, and the balance of aesthetics in relation to surrounding parcels. In my defense, I’ve always tried to create a park-like setting for my sometimes semi-monstrous builds. I’ve never really been bashful about planting trees, bushes, and doing a bit of landscaping at least around the edges. And I think my Aotearoa parcel looks pretty good because of the practice — this has been reinforced by my travels around Big Sink recently, especially the western side.

And this brings me back to Chilbo. Despite being a mainland establishment, Chilbo is a very *aesthetically pleasing* place to visit. It seems very well designed, even though the development is mainly organic and not planned (if I’m understanding the history correctly). Each time I visit the town through one of my avatars, I see something new. Despite being only 2 sims, in essence (although it is spreading out, slowly, into neighboring sims to these two oldest as well), there’s a lot to take in — I haven’t figured out how everything is laid out yet, which is a good thing. It means the development is fractal and complex, and seems to speak to the organic nature, again.

I better end this for tonight… more to say about Chilbo soon! Hard to speak about the possible negatives in the light I’m casting it, but maybe I can eventually touch upon, with more community experience, how Chilbo might improve in time, or develop.

And, yes, there is an SL before *this* SL — mythology has not been forgotten in the least. Karoz is right about this. Chilbol is probably just as real as Chilbo. It represents paths less taken, or paths more taken; some of this can be traced back to the founding of the community. But for now, for me, and perhaps for Karoz through me, the focus must be on *present* Chilbo. The role of Chilbo in Second Life and virtual reality in general is itself coming into sharper focus through its anticipated participation in the LL Communiy Partnership Proposal. Virtually speaking, this is damn important stuff, and will speak largely, I believe, to the continued success of SL itself. Can there be a meaningful dialog in this manner between Chilbo and LL, and between other communities and LL? I’m certainly biased, but I also can’t help but think that Chilbo has more to offer than the great majority of “internal” communities to the larger, overarching SL community, because of its more open nature and also the evolution from a mainland backdrop, to name two obvious advantages that spring to mind.

I’ll provide more links and thoughts soon.


Chats…

“Call that number again, baker Beach.”

bb:

Hi Plant. Hucka D. not around tonight?

Plant:

He’ll be over here in just a minute, I believe. Flight delay.

bb:

Interesting. You eating tonight again, Mr. Plant?

Plant:

No. Already done.

bb:

I’ve been exploring around Big Sink. Did you know that?

Plant:

Yeah, not much in these pits, is there. Why don’t you move back to Norumbega.

bb:

You mean Noru. Well… I liked it there a lot; I like Sunklands better. More options, for only a little more money.

Plant:

The Hammer of the Gods Place? I lived there. I blocked Marty from the center of the sink.

bb:

So you’re saying it isn’t coincidence that the name is the same as the tribute band or the book.

Plant:

Nah, that’s one’s pretty obvious. We wanted to protect the center, but Marty outfoxed us. He simply became The Residents. All Residents. That’s called teaming up, baker Beach.

bb:

So you originally had him trapped or cornered in Moa?

Plant:

We finally had all that under control. It took me quite a while to make my way down to this center, you understand. Several levels of purification had to be made… had to make my way through ’em. Then I got my plot; I was so happy. Had to put up with Marty, but you see he was cornered… shoved aside. But I was set up.

bb:

By Peter?

Plant:

No. Your Peter of Norumbega wasn’t around. Dr. Blood. He set me up.

bb:

What was Karoz’s role in this?

Plant:

He carved the diamond of 32 prims. They inserted it at the center, just beyond my land. I was close but not at the center. Then Vortextra formed. Or was sealed up.

bb:

You seemed confused. Seem confused, I mean.

Plant:

Huh?

bb:

Hucka D., I believe, has indicated Chilbo may have been conceived in a tent by that massive hole, Mr. Plant. Alice and Kerchal are the proud parents.

Plant:

That was Dr. Blood [‘s project].

bb:

Did Big Sink truly look like Hucka D.’s selected print, Mr. Plant?

Plant:

Plant’s the name. Just Plant. Yeah, it was pretty pretty.

bb:

Can you tell us about some of the other residents now?

Plant:

They were all Marty. Became Marty. He was in each and every one of ’em. Fox. Clem. Dingos. Foxes.

bb:

Outfoxed?

Plant:

In an ideal world, you should buy that Pudding Hill plot, baker Beach. The central one of course. But you won’t now. Here.

bb:

Who owned the central plot at the time?

Plant:

The Bakers, of course. That’s all they owned. Or so they said.

bb:

The Bakers… Baker Bloch and Baker Blinker?

Plant:

Yes. You two, the two of you inside you, were married. Id and Superego… sorry, animus and anima. That rebis you talk about. You honeymooned at Rubidoo… sorry again, Rubisea. You brought Hucka D. with you. He was in the house as well. You build, well, you built the temple here.

bb:

When we, us, moved here, was the community of the sink already in place?

Plant:

You were invited here, like everyone else, like me.

bb:

By Dr. Blood?

Plant:

You need to further figure out your relationship with Peter, baker Beach. He created the sinks, Big Sink included. It was a bleedthrough from the real world.

bb:

Sunk Lands, Arkansas? Sunklands, Missouri?

Plant:

The Bakers sacrificed their fine home, their plot, their temple, so that the hole could form. This virtual reality was better off with the hole forming. Chilbo was born.

bb:

Was Chilbo an actual child?

[Plant doesn’t answer.]

bb:

Mr. Plant? Plant?

Hucka D.:

I was there.

bb:

Hello Hucka D. You were with The Bakers in that reality as well. Can we determine a specific point where the realities split apart?

Hucka D.:

Think back on your Hidalgo collage series. Think back on the death of Charles Nelson Blinkerton of Hidalgo County, New Mexico. Think back on when I walked down to the house in Azure Islands when the flower was plucked, as a bee now and not very human atall. Think further back to the treehouse and the purple alien version of me. Think of Rodeo and the portal… that was before Azure Islands as well. Somewhere in all that is a specific clue.

bb:

Was Azure Islands even involved in that reality?

Hucka D.:

SL did not look exactly like it did in your reality. Rubisea played a larger role.

bb:

What of Chilbo in *this* reality? What was the difference between this Chilbo and that Chilbo?

Hucka D.:

You mean Vortextra conceived Chilbo? My father was there for one. CUBUS was around still. The Bank. My father funded Chilbo. He extended it beyond the present range through power and influence. It became, in essence, the whole continent, including Sunklands. Including Nowtown and Zen City. Including Sternberg and the Korean Channel. Chilbo and Jeogeot were one. Still are in a sense.

bb:

Chilbo was in charge of the Sunklands project (!)

Hucka D.:

Yes, you can say that. A second Chilbo was born there, or conceived there. A special Chilbo.

bb:

Chilbol?

Hucka D.:

Big Sink is 8 sims. Big Island *was* 7 sims. It’s gone now, baker b. Sorry. I was there as well. Peter moved to the mainland to make green. Money. Lindens. Limes.

bb:

Peter then formed Sunklands through his acquired power and influence.

Hucka D.:

Money and power can accomplish many things, especially in a virtual world. There’s quite a difference in being a servant to a couple who owns a 1024 in a relatively undesirable sink and one who owns a whole continent. Oz… Psycho.

bb:

Did your father own the continent, Hucka D.? Kelley, wasn’t it?

Hucka D.:

If so, he would have to own Maebaleia as well. Those two. Rubisea as well, then.

bb:

*He* created the rabbit holes?

Hucka D.:

Think back to your Square, Michigan. Kentucky on edge. Peanut. Bullet… bb. BB.

bb:

Ruuster. We’ve forgotten about R110.

Hucka D.:

I didn’t. How could I?

bb:

You defeated your father.

Hucka D.:

I did it by becoming the lowest of the low and then trapping him through his ego. He never suspected anything.

bb:

You lured him to Big Sink with a pie contest? Baking contest?

Hucka D.:

Yes. Pies.

bb:

We better end.

Hucka D.:

Yes. Thank you.


Trees, Etc.

Baker Bloch visits an interesting island in the Blake Sea, near the current eastern edge of a New England themed archipelago. Called Great Island, and spanning two sims: Point of Pines and Land’s End. Appropriate to the name, it is one of the largest islands of the archipelago.

Snapshot1385_001smaller

A large salt marsh dominates the center of the island, which a wet footed Blochs is standing in below, looking east toward a wooded hill.

Snapshot1385_003smaller

We then shift to Karoz meditating in the huge branches of the great Oracle Tree of Chilbo, which Hucka D. has just talked about in a blog post and with certainly some interesting stories about its possible, ancient or pre-Linden origins. (!) I’m sure Karoz will be returning to this tree soon. Just for the record, it looks like the Oracle Tree stands something under *200* meters tall, starting at an elevation of 122 at the base. Top elevation, then, would be around 300 meters or so. Below, Karoz sits at the 242 meter level. The name of the tree’s creator is Xirro Link, it seems, with another curiously empty SL profile to his name.

A look up from his meditation spot towards higher parts.

Snapshot1386_005smaller

A pool at the base of the tree, actually in an open area underneath the hollow base. Nice… it’s “Water for Super Hottub 1.1” that I use to fill all my pools with as well. Here you’ll find a teleporter to the shrine Karoz was just meditating inside as well.

As Karoz is checking behind Baker Bloch today, he also finds that you can fly up about 30 meters through the hollow trunk as well, fwiw.

I should add more about trees here. Weird run of “tree” references from many different directions yesterday. Let me list them out. 1) Visited UK Heights own sim in Pudding Hill sim, Big Sink, and came across the band’s “Trees” video, inspired by vision of a since deceased band member; 2) Later in same day visited meditation spot obviously focused upon dense cluster of trees, also in Big Sink but on the western side; 3) That same night when Baker Bloch logged in, found lone notecard waiting for him from Quadrapop *Tree* group that he didn’t even know he belonged to. Never got a notecard from ’em before. But by this time he was aware of the tree motif going on, and promptly visited the “Halloween Hideout” it advertised and met a very nice avatar who managed the three Univ. of Western Australia sims it was located within. He also bragged about the works of the artist owner of the Quadropop Tree Gallery that the aforementioned SL group promotes, one Quadrapop Lane, who has some art showing at the Halloween Hideout as well.*

On more minor note, perhaps, saw man with last name of “Trees” on the tv, what little I watched that day, although I can’t remember the show or the context. Also came across, earlier in the day, mention of beings from Sirius as tree-like. There were other, more indirect references that later surfaced in Hucka D.’s late night thoughts on the subject, including seeing a car bought at a dealership in Joplin, Missouri on my short commute home from work (I’m American, but nowhere *near* Missouri, and I can’t remember the last time I’d seen a Missouri license plate, if ever), and a couple of other bits and pieces I’m not recalling right now.

Below, Baker Bloch once again stands in the largest dry sink of the Corsica continent, this time to specifically visit the Quadrapop Tree Gallery. I’ve also added the gallery to this blog’s SL galleries list. Had to, don’t you think?

Trees And Such…

“Trees, Hucka D. Arkansas and trees.”

Hucka D.:

And Missouri. Sunklands in both. Sunk Lands. Which one’s real?

bb:

You prefer Arkansas over Missouri. You stated that a number of times now. You and Grassy differ on this.

Hucka D.:

Residue. Wilderness. Toy vs. Virtual avatars. Last war. Explosion.

bb:

When Karoz originally entered Chilbo, he was “killed” when he tried to hide behind the base of the town’s huge Oracle Tree, Hucka D. Now he’s thinking there’s more to this. The *tree* is the key, the center. Now… was there a similar tree in the center of Big Sink, where you state Vortextra was? Important question, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Probable realities. Jane Roberts up to another level. All in one. Trunk is one. Branches are many. One is many. Tree.

bb:

If you’re saying the tree was there, was it… well I obviously have several questions: 1) was it uprooted to make Vortextra?, 2) was it of the same species as the Oracle Tree, the same seed in other words, 3) …

Hucka D.:

It is more than the same species. It is the same tree. The tree in the center of Chilbo saves it from the probable reality where it is destroyed — stabbed — by an atomic explosion. Big Sink’s loss was Chilbo’s gain. That’s the residue you are encountering in Big Sink, the continued reference to trees. That’s what the meditating avatar is picking up on; that’s what UK Heights picked up on. There are, of course, other emphases spread out from Big Sink but this is a junction, a nodal point. Big Sink’s loss was Chilbo’s gain.

bb:

Fascinating. Vortextra is, um, the hole resulting from the uprooted tree.

Hucka D.:

The Chilbo tree is stated to come from unknown dimensions; Chilbo was built around it. You should ask [Fleep] the story of that sometime. What Chilbo has Big Sink lost.

bb:

Yes, good to restate that, I suppose. But… Big Sink’s loss was also a gain.

Hucka D.:

*Yes.* It would not become Chilbo. It was out of danger as well.

bb:

I’m not understanding…

Hucka D.:

It gained the hole.

bb:

Hucka D., did The Bakers, the probable Bakers, live in the tree?

Hucka D.:

*Yes.* They weren’t alone, though. In Chilbo now, no one lives in the tree. It is largely forgotten as far as that goes. It is the quiet center. In Big Sink, it was the center center. Children played on its branches, knowing that if they fell they would not be harmed. Grownups moved to the upper branches to talk more grown up things like philosophy, art, science. All was good.

bb:

What happened, then?

Hucka D.:

The Lindens. SL was coming, and the elders knew it. They could live in splendid isolation or they could join the new initiative, despite the obvious disadvantages and losses that would result in this. It was decided to build a new community to better handle the changes. This became Chilbo.

bb:

The tree was moved.

Hucka D.:

Yes. Shifted. Not really uprooted. Well, maybe uprooted. Trees had real, virtual roots in those days. Grew pies as well. (smiles)

bb:

This has something to do with the Sandbox treehouse, doesn’t it?

Hucka D.:

Synchs were shown there. K.C. Life. Second life. In the center: Centerville. Centreville.

bb:

I think I need to study the philosophy of the world tree.

Hucka D.:

And the art and the science of it.

bb:

So the tree was planted or existed on that 1024 parcel in the sw corner of Pudding Hill. The UK Heights group now has a virtual presence there [in that sim], and identify with their Trees video. Must be a connection. You must be telling the truth at least in part.

Hucka D.:

Always do. I fully tell the truth in part.

bb:

This was no ordinary tree.

Hucka D.:

The shift to the Linden Grid diffused the magic. However majestic the tree is in Chilbo now, it was 10x so in Big Sink. More senses back then — taste, touch, smell.

bb:

The Zeppelin tube! It has something to do with the tree.

Hucka D.:

There’s a reason Plant lived next to that parcel but not in it. Where the Hammer of the Gods people live now in Brouwer. You could ask him.

bb:

Ok.

Plant:

Luvly evening for late October. You want to know about the tree now.

bb:

Was, I don’t know, the tube the *seed*?

Plant:

It was all probable realities of Big Sink, and also Jeogeot as a whole. This would of course include my Nowtown, my, ahem, Zen City. You can buy property there now if you wish, baker Beach.

bb:

I’m having trouble picturing the immensity of this tree.

Plant:

Well… it certainly didn’t stop at that 1024, believe me. I was in it!

bb:

You were inside that vast plant, Plant.

Plant:

Uh, yeah.

bb:

Did you actually *plant* it?

Plant:

You didn’t actually have to live in it to be a part of it. You could set the limbs for phantom, or make them almost invisible. Yet the energy was still there. Potent. That’s why I had to be purified.

bb:

Sirius?

Plant:

Yup.

bb:

Care to elaborate?

Plant:

Nope. Not now. Hucka D. is back.

Hucka D.:

Now you know about the tree, think of the uprooting. Gaping hole. Loss. Gain for Chilbo but the grid was then superimposed. *Everything* changed.

bb:

What is R110, Hucka D.?

Hucka D.;

That had to do with [the moving of] the tree.

bb:

Was the tree Arkansas, Hucka D.? Wait… I already know.

Hucka D.:

It was the *Joplin* tree. Treemonisha. Interesting, eh?

bb:

Very!

Hucka D.:

You’ve absorbed a lot tonight. We should stop soon.

bb:

Hucka D., you were black then. Not necessarily African-American but just black. A black colored avatar.

Hucka D.:

What am I to The Bakers — you — in this reality?

bb:

Yes, I suppose we should end here. Ty!

Hucka D.:

Good night. Talk soon.


Caught Up, Review…

Goals:

> Further exploration of Big Sink and development of that mythology, as it reacts to “separate” mythologies of Chilbo and others (Korean Channel, Nowtown/Zen City/Sternberg) on the Jeogeot continent.

> Soon to be creation of another “Carrcass-1” in “RL”. Blog must be used as generator of energy, as it was before in late 2008.

> further exploration of Jeogeot in general. I don’t think a return to Noru will be made now (could certainly be wrong); I want to stay in Sunklands for the present. As I’ve found out (return to Azure Islands, return to Kerchal Forest in a more minor way, return to Rubi through Horisme), it’s difficult to repeat the past. I could attempt it with Otherland again — not sure it would work. Azure I.s are right out of the picture now.

> more RL explorations in Nov. and Dec. Focus? Denville (town) maybe. Beach Mtn. maybe. Granddaddy Mtn. Maybe just Blue Mtn. (town) itself, where I live. Or Boulder (nearby smaller town). Advancement of toy avatar mythology continues in ways through marbles and Denville and Key Rock/Castle Rock.

> which brings me to the tree seed (GA). In thinking about it further, not sure there *was* a giant tree in the heart of Sunklands, on that sw parcel of Pudding Hill sim Hucka D. has indicated. Think an *attempt* to plant a seed was made there (by Plant himself?), but “failed”. The seed, I believe, was brought from Rubisea on the Maebaleia continent, perhaps by the Bakers (Baker Bloch and Baker Blinker). The trip to Rubisea may not have been merely a honeymoon, or perhaps they just acquired the seed or seeds “by accident” during their honeymoon there. Were they, then, planning to move to Sunklands anyway?

> I think at least one of the seed was of a giant persimmon tree. Golf and drivers/woods were connected in some way. Wheeler 02 collage may represent a depiction of this giant tree or giant projected tree (Redwood in Wilsonia, CA on the collage). If so, then Wheeler 08 may also be important since the same “driver” is in it. The seed was the same as the marriage of Baker Blinker and Baker Bloch — their union, and also a symbol of Rubisea itself, the smaller inland sea, that is. It was known that it was also a “red c”, or a red note, perhaps middle c. From this c or seed, all 12 (or 13) notes of the chromatic scale were formed. In the Lake District of Maebaleia, this would represent relationship between Rubisea (c) and Blue Feather Sea (all 12 or 13 notes). Blue Feather Sea is about 12-13 times wider than Rubisea. Blue Feather Sea, then, is just a future version of Rubisea, demonstated by turning the geographic relationship 180 degrees.

> study Rabbit Holes of each continent… more to be found there I have a feeling.

> Blue Feather Sea of Maebaleia then represents the entire tree that sprang from the seed (Rubisea). Baker Bloch (and Blinker) found this out in Rubisea during their honeymoon. Baker Bloch especially was fascinated with the mythology. Thought he and Blinks must be some kind of Adams and Eve, but they called themselves AAron and ABigail. (Hucka D. states they were also married on Valentine‘s Day)

> the seed (or 2 seeds or perhaps even more) of the persimmon like tree was taken to Sunklands on Jeogeot. An attempt to plant was made. 9 months later, perhaps, the Black Hole was formed instead — Vortextra. The second seed, a non-Persimmon tree as it turned out, was taken to the Chilbo sim, eventually. This represented a successful planting, but on a smaller scale. It was not actually the Rubisea seed (Rubiseed? Ruby Seed?).*

> The Bakers (and others) planted the seed that was to become the tree, knowing that it was a Manifestation of God. The hole that instead formed was seen as the death or suicide of God. Negativ in impact, without the “e”, though. TILE was born from this hole, the 4 colors that split off from God. One could only understand The One through The Four. The first temple [of TILE] was there at Vortextra.***

> through Vortextra, a wormhole was affected between SL/Sunklands and RL/Mythos. There it appeared in the center of The Federation. It was identified with a Rat Hole. The Rat Hole. One doesn’t enter such a thing lightly.

> Not sure how exactly the Triva Ratsuit contest figures into this yet, or what the exact relationship between Big Sink and Big Island is.

> The relationship between Rubisea and Blue Feather Sea is like Key Rock (key, or seed perhaps) and Castle Rock (12th on this list, as Key Rock is first — another 12 to 1 relationship. Key Rock at Denville also seen as “note” or “seed”, with entire ridge it’s on (Castle Ridge or Castle Rock), as the whole scale, once more. 12:1. Study key holes in 10×10 collages as well.

> I am where I am suppose to be.

* A third seed, perhaps, was not planted but used for divination purposes, to predict the shape of the virtual reality obviously on the horizon. Spoon, knife and fork aspects were also involved here. Cutlery. I also think the Persimmon regiment figures into the Sunklands mythology somewhere.

** Another doctor who studied forks (in roads?), perhaps Dr. Blood or related to him or a comrade, performed the divination of the seed, as well as the splitting of the seed itself. Operation on the seed. (Blood Seed?) Anecdote was confused with Antidote.

*** Hucka D. has since indicated that the front of the Temple of TILE in *Rubi* sim, where it found its peak manifestation in *this* reality, was a bleedthrough of that alternate but more real, to him, Temple above Vortextra. He states I must study the Rubi-Silver front of the temple in more detail. Joplin is missing, he’s indicated. He further says this is the missing *Joplin Tree* that should have grown from the seed where, instead, the black hole of Vortextra formed.

“Tell us about the arrival of The Bill, Hucka D.?”

Hucka D.:

They arrived in black spaceships dressed all in black. Their mission was simple yet difficult. Remove the dead. They are pictured in Greenup 03. They wore black hats and black suits. They were from Lyra/Vega.

bb:

They came for the 3rd Seed. 3rd Life?

Hucka D.:

The 3rd Life was removed, yes. Marble. Castle Rock – Key Rock. 2x3x4. It was cut by knife. Inside was knife as well, not spoon not fork. Maybe all 3. Difficult to divine now. All 3 possibilities were glinty silver in hue.

bb:

The seed bled?

Hucka D.:

Yes. To the surprise of The Bakers and everyone else who were unpriviledged enough to watch. Except probably The Bills. So named because of their hats? No. Yes?

bb:

The Bills were not cruel, though?

Hucka D.:

Not really. Cold, though. Sterile. Icy a bit. Stare.

bb:

When Vortextra formed instead of a tree, as expected — as what had happened in Rubisea, The Bills were called in. They were also from the area of Rubisea.

Hucka D.:

Correct. Ruuster. R110.

bb:

They were called in to see what went wrong with the planting. Plant.

Plant:

Here.

bb:

We’re very late today with our usual middle of the night dialog.

Plant:

Hucka D. thought it wise to go ahead with it, though.

bb:

*Was* there a tree in the center of Sunklands?

Plant:

Was and wasn’t.

bb:

In *your* reality?

Plant.

Ummmmmmm…. no.

bb:

Did you know The Bill?

Plant:

Kind of. They made a mound which was a mountain.

bb:

Is this the same as Petemond or Pete’s Mound?

Plant:

May be.

bb:

Is it this mound?

Hucka D.:

There’s Marty (smiles).

*****

Even further thoughts:

> The death of “God” (Joplin Tree) could only come in the very center of the center of Sunklands, or the center of Big Sink. Big Sink ironically also called the smallest of sinks, or a Peewee Sink. This is the influence of the central hole, though, negativ in impact but not negative.

> Hucka D. states that a particular region of Blue Feather Sea represents its “seed area”, with direct resonance with Rubisea. He states this is in the sims of Shax and Asmodeus, but mainly the former. More soon on that.

*****

Hucka D.:

This is the seed of the Plant.

“Hucka D., should we talk more about this mound tonight?”

Yes, you found Pete’s Mound. We put a palm tree there so it would stick out. Good idea, no?

It is a grave.

Revelationary Book of Revolutionary St. Lemon of Troy

lemon_of_troy*
“St. Lemon of Troy”, 1/2 fuel oil and 1/2 kerosene painting by Hans “Balding” Grien, c. 1511 PL

———-

According to the abridged, 3d version of The Unikese Babble, St. Lemon of Troy (1800 PL – 1610 PL) was the original Bill or channeler of Bill, writing the 9 epistles of Revolution (1715 PL – 1706 PL) to the 6 or 7 sinking churches of Skinlands while trapped by renegade Ban Lines on the Profaned Islet of Roost Ear (later: Sacred or Holy Isle of Ruustre) in the Mabinogion sim of Maebaleia (wrongly: the Maebaleia sim of Mabinogion). It was written and delivered, epistle by epistle, in the sturdy claws of a strong winged eagle directly to Skinlands, already being refered to as Sinklands (alternately: Sinlands), over the 8 1/2 mile chasm of virtual ocean dividing Maebaleia from Jeogeot (inversely: Jeogeot from Maebaleia). From a central location in the already rapidly cooling Skinlands, each section was quickly copied and disseminated to the eagerly awaiting, shivering flocks of the various sinking churches, converting them to fully clothed and Godly ways and allowing holy escape from the sparingly deadly but always nakedly cold “Touch of Satan” scourge plaguing the region as a whole at the time. A popular, alternate version, arising sometime in the 12th -13th Century PL, has it that the book was spoken by St. Lemon of Troy to a strangely eagle-shaped, talking rooster or “Sacredly Fowl Chicken Parrot”, which then flew over the aforementioned 8 1/2 mile ocean chasm to recite each epistle directly to the Skinlands or Sinklands churches in order of current temperature, colder to less cold. Other versions include variations or conflations of these two main anecdotes, as well as more off-the-wall fantasies involving 67 or 76 blue bodied children with flame spitting heads of yellow fire, flirting lemon tarts with masticating lemon rinds for mouths, and Denver Pyle.

The revelationary Revolution epistles were such a scintilating money-making hit for St. Lemon of Troy that he wrote nine more (1705 PL – 1696 PL), equally dividing the 18 part book into a front and back nine. On his writing style, it is said that he consistently started each epistle in a wildly hurried (“swinging”) fashion and gradually slowed down to a much more measured, even puddering pace to end. The saint was reportedly quoted as saying he felt each epistle dropped, “rabbit-like”, down an icy void hole at the finish line, only to be “teed up” again in the succeeding one, as if reborn, “inside a hotly masticating, lemon rind shaped mouth”. He also supposedly referred to his entrapping islet itself as a hole, or a-hole, or, as the Unikese Babble more wholly puts it, “A Numbingly Uncomfortably Sinkhole” of complete and utter immobility.

———-

220px-St-john-patmos
Starting around the 8th Century PL, the traditional, sliced lemon was placed behind the saint’s head in pictorial representations instead of in front, allowing a still rabid fan base to first glimpse their hero’s true visage some 1000 years after his death from a citric acid overdose.


Chattiness…

“Up for a brief talk, Hucka D.?”

Hucka D.:

Plant is here.

Plant:

Hello. I have fish.

bb:

You eating, then?

Plant:

They’re thawing on the counter. Rainbow trout. But I can talk until then.

bb:

Where’d Hucka D. go… never mind.

Plant:

Ironing his many shirts, he said. Lots and lots of shirts. Lots.

bb:

Do you wish to talk about Big Sink tonight?

Plant:

Hucka D. states you found Peter’s grave, his mound.

bb:

I believe so. Perhaps. It’s in the Otaki Gorge.

Plant:

That is the 18th hole, the one you stay in and can’t escape. Body-wise.

bb:

Grave, then. (pause) There are many unanswered questions [for me] about Big Sink, Mr. Plant.

Plant:

Ask away.

bb:

You said Marty became all residents. What does that mean?

Plant:

You need to think more about the Bunny Boy, baker Beach. He holds the flag.

bb:

Flag pin to the 18th hole?

Plant:

It was a Halloween gift to you from Hucka D. The palm tree. He knew you would make the collage with Frank.

bb:

Peter is Frank.

Plant:

Sunklands is a split off reality from the main reality we collectively — you collectively call Second Life. From now on, though, we are going to use a “y” in the “Lyfe” — Hucka D.’s decision.

bb:

Is Sunklands a temporary reality? Does it collapse after a certain amount of time?

Plant:

When the pin is removed, the reality is removed.

bb:

The pin is the tree? Joplin Tree, I mean?

Plant:

Vortextra is opened, A Numbingly Uncomfortable Sink.

bb:

Did this black hole form Big Sink in the first place?

Plant:

Peter formed Big Sink and the other sinks from the Norumbega properties, 9 in total. Sunklands, Missouri and Sunk Lands, Arkansas were combined. Red Line. Joplin — missing.

bb:

St. Lemon of Troy — is that the same as Lemon we’ve been talking about?

Plant:

Yes?

bb:

Marty around tonight?

Marty:

Hey.

bb:

Marty, is Lemon the same as St. Lemon of Troy?

Marty:

I am joining Plant for fish tonight. We are trying to get along, you see. Yes, Lemon is the same as the other Lemon. Revolution 1… Revolution 9. And then the back 9 to make 18 total. Pin pulled out, game over. You have Peter’s Mound.

bb:

Were there really churches here in Sinklands? And was it really called Skinlands at the time? A sinking Skinlands changed to Sinklands after the conversion?

Marty:

Yes. Lemon… (pause)

bb:

Marty?

Hucka D.:

I am in the middle of ironing but was called in. Middle game. I am joining Marty and Plant for fish, baker b. We would luv to have you but it’s difficult.

bb:

Because I’m not “physically” here.

Hucka D.:

Right. Plant’s a pretty good cook I’ve heard.

bb:

What did he mean when he said Marty became all residents?

Hucka D.:

Let’s save that for another night. Fish is up. “Coming!”


Sinking In…

Thoughts:

I will stay in Sunklands at least another month or 2. Looking at Christmas for another decision point. Return to Otherland could be in the works — probably not. Must define, in the meantime, my role with Chilbo, if any. Obviously if I’m going to stay on the Jeogeot continent…

Sunklands, however, is also an escape. Return to the Atoll continent as well — specifically Rubi — is probably not an option either. Either I grow up now in Second Lyfe (new name!) or I begin an exit strategy. Maybe, queerly, both in one.

Return to my pre-Second Lyfe past is not a possibility now. Discussion boards; audiovisual synching. Yes, synchs… syncs. Sunklands contains things that cannot be discussed on such boards, apparently. Yet within Second Lyfe, I have made, well, I’ve made some friends…

“What’s in the center, Hucka D.? Of Sunklands I mean?”

Hucka D.:

An exit strategy. Time for reflection finally. What about our blog within the blog? Perhaps we can start that up again. I’m your friend.

bb:

You’re just me.

Hucka D.:

What of Marty and Plant? They’re here; they’re helping. They’re friends. They would tell you that. And you know they’re real in a variant way. Let them tell you more. Yes, they knew you were alone. That’s why they agreed to help [in the first place.]

bb:

I appreciate their help.

Hucka D.:

You don’t know — fully realize — what’s gone into this. (pause)

bb:

At one point, earlier on, I had plans for Second Lyfe interviews. Don’t think that’s going to happen now.

Hucka D.:

Don’t give up on Chilbo. Be careful about altering the time lines there, as I warned before. But stay peripherally involved. You can do that through the blog itself. Also [delete word] your land.

bb:

I was suppose to come to this place and break ties.

Hucka D.:

The End. But within…

bb:

The Whole.

*****

So this is what I think is gonna happen. Sunklands is a final Second Lyfe stop. I develop there or develop elsewhere. Third life? Possibility.

Hucka D.:

You know a battle — not physical — is taking place for the center of the USA between Arkansas and Missouri. You know this has something to do with Sunklands, Second Lyfe. Why does TILE become Tyle, baker b.?

bb:

I have everything I need.


Diamond Stone Rock Jam Band

“Yes, 65 is a number, Hucka D.”

Hucka D.:

I wish I would have said that.

bb:

So Hope is in the center of Big Sink. Arkansas. Sunk Lands.

Hucka D.:

And, unfortunately — maybe fortunately, or at least according to *your* Grassy — Missouri. Show me some truth. Just gimme some [truth].

Hope_diamond

Hucka D.:

Thank you, Brother Baker.

bb:

A Numbingly Uncomfortable Sinkhole.

Hucka D.:

And 56.

bb:

6[0]1. The Future.

Hucka D.:

S.F. Bunny Born. Light and Dark. Opposites. Peter. *Boz Ho.*

bb:

Plain, plain weird, Hucka D. Talking to a spirit through the tv.

Hucka D.:

18th hole. Maybe 19. Inescapable end. Mound. Flag pin. Pulled.

bb:

Second Lyfe Lovers all in one.

Hucka D. (ritually):

One in all.

*****

bb:

The question is, where does it *divert* from the other bb, the one with the capitals.

Hucka D.:

You mean Bunny Boy? Can I say that out loud here?

bb:

Suppose so.

Hucka D.:

Arkansas becomes the, “uh, uh,” navel of the world. See… humor again. (smiles broadly)

bb:

Back to the diversion question… well, the whole Missouri thing. Grassy. You think it ends in Arkansas.

Hucka D.:

Yes, the beast is killed. In Brainard or nearby. Hucka Doobee. Amagon. Armageddon. Plain speaking, you see, by this Boz Ho.

bb:

But that’s Beebe, not Huckabee.

Hucka D.:

Bee follows bee, though. Another bb.

bb:

Bb. Um… bB.

Hucka D.:

Wild knew this. Your friend Flynn knows but she or he doesn’t know. Flynn is the Bunny. Flunny… Funny.

bb:

A Tron video arcade marked the location of the sealed up hole. Spoken by Homer, this “Tron”. (Hucka D. laughs out loud) Cube becomes cue [second life becomes Second Lyfe]. Secrets revealed. Eyeballed.

Hucka D.:

People will think you are a Resident as well.

bb:

I am.

Hucka D.:

Marty was not, a thing which he is sorry for now. “I’m sorry, I’m sorry.” (smiles again).*

bb:

What of Plant?

Hucka D.:

Marty’s bitch. No, that’s not right. Marty surrounds [outfoxes] Plant. Plant thinks he has him cornered and [then] he becomes the All In One and One In All.

bb:

You said that he became The Residents.

Hucka D.:

I said he became *all* Residents. Second Lyfe. Now that’s directly tied to your Tyle and TILE. You see now, not at the beginning but not at the end. In the middle, but above the origin of the 6[6]6 monkey.

bb:

Well, you certainly lost me there.

Big Sink > Kahruvel Forest

Hopefully I’ll have more to say about Big Sink very soon. For now, I’ll leave you with this waterfall picture taken in Craggen Maw once more, but on what was clearly private property according to a prominently placed sign.

Snapshot1391_004smaller

Moving on to a more recent night of exploration, then, this time through the eyes of my green friend Karoz Blogger. I believe this might be his first visit to the oldest SL continent, Sansara, but not sure of that. Oh… of course not… he’s visited the Healy gallery a number of times. But this is definitely — I think — his first teleport into the *older,* old continent, the Forest of Kahruvel in this case. He finds the location very, very attractive, and wonders why Baker Bloch doesn’t spend more time there. Just before he takes the below pictures, he wanders around Salazar Jack’s famous seaside village in Cowell. Nice to see Headburro still has his digs there.

Below is an overhead shot of the great waterfall in Rodeo (Rodeo Falls?), a 25 meter cascade originating from a spring about 25 meters further up the mountain. If you haven’t been to Rodeo during your Second Life existence, then you’ve been missing something. Don’t wait; go now!

Snapshot1393_001smaller

I don’t remember this giant stone head being there when Baker Bloch and Baker Blinker use to visit. But as Baker Bloch is checking behind Karoz today (for a change), he finds that it is over 3 years old. Probably just missed it before.

Snapshot1393_004smaller

On a nearby cliff overlooking the sea, Karoz clicks on an open book, which turns out to be a “linking book” taking him to another well known location in the forest: Phyneas Jack’s Lookout, also in Rodeo. Karoz is standing in front of Phyneas’ portrait below. More on his story here. That’s Salazar Jack’s great grandfather, in case you didn’t catch it, and the namesake of the trust that protects the forest, spreading out not only over Rodeo but neighboring sims such as Cowell, Stinson, Noyo, and even others.

Snapshot1393_006smaller

On a whim, Karoz teleports over to the narrow strip of land marking the western boundary of Rosedale, one sim west of Stinson. He’s not in the great forest any longer, but he can dimly see the cliffs over the intervening sea. Admittedly the dark and jagged distant silhouettes in the two pictures below rather gave him the creeps, because he wasn’t sure what they were at first.

Snapshot1394_002smaller

Snapshot1394_003smaller

Karoz also took the time to visit Abbott’s Aerodrome, another famous site of the area. Again, this is not in the Forest of Kahruvel proper, but it’s just west, and the huge airport sits on the same mountain range running through the center of Kahruvel.

More on the Abbotts Aerodrome from the Second Life Wikia.

Snapshot1394_004smaller

Very interesting that it’s supposedly built on top of an older airport now in ruins. In fact, it was an area around some of those very ruins that most attracted Karoz’s attention last night, in particular a camping site near of the base of a dilapidated tower, still in Abbotts but very near Kahruvel indeed now, a mere meters away.

Snapshot1394_007smaller

The campsite included a tent w/ sleeping bag, a log fire, and also several stumps to sit yer rump on. What wonderful stories must have been told around this campfire down through the years now, he supposes. Could this make a good base from which to explore the forest and general area? Could Karoz actually spend a night or two or three away from his precious Jeogeot?

Snapshot1394_008smaller

Next!


Kahruvel Forest > Chilbo

Karoz attempts to get some shut eye in the tent and await the morning light for further exploration.

Snapshot1394_010smaller

However, he couldn’t settle in, and quickly arose to look over the ruined tower base…

Snapshot1394_013smaller

… and reexplore the airport itself more, with its nifty blue neon trim leading him through the various spaces.

Snapshot1394_016smaller

Then it was back to lands further west, even beyond Rosedale this time to Georgean, the site of a Vehicle Sandbox according the land description. In fact, the sandbox and sim appear to be one and the same.

Snapshot1394_018smaller

And over the mountain to the south is a “sandbox sandbox”, 4 adjacent sims worth, in fact. I remember Baker Blinker sitting on this high vantage point at times and viewing the various builds being executed. She also use to sit on a smaller, wooded ridge just north of the Cowell lighthouse and watch the flying vehicles coming and going from Abbotts Aerodrome. All this happened mainly before I started this blog about one month into my SL existence. By the time I started the blog, I had essentially left the forest behind to explore other areas of Sansara, and also beyond. But I’ll never forget finding Kahruvel — also a nighttime event. I was amazed, in flying west through sim after sim, that such a large, relatively natural area existed so close to the oldest, much more built up areas of Second Life just to the north. How could such a chunk of land remain protected all these years? Kudos, once more, to Mr. Jack and his immediate family for the idea of a Kahruvel trust.

Snapshot1394_019smaller

But, as it turned out, Karoz quickly got homesick, and returned to Jeogeot even before dawn could arrive in Second Lyfe. What a home body; even worse than The Bakers! Below he sits on a bench in one of his favorite Chilbo parks, soaking in the warmer air, as Karoz later put it. Was it really warmer? Perhaps to him it was, and although SL has no defined equator that I know of, Jeogeot is considerably south of Sansara. Hmmm… have to think about that warmth issue more.

Snapshot1394_027smaller


Roll’n Along…

“Karoz, I believe, likes Chilbo best of all.”

Hucka D.:

He is a native. That’s his natural element.

bb:

He claims Sansara felt “colder.” That couldn’t be, could it?

Hucka D.:

Why not. He remembers the past. Senses were different, then. You had more. Smell, taste, touch. Above and beyond sight and sound, even though they’re still the two most important ones. And he remembers food… pies even. There’s an interesting bakery in Chilbo that’s a trace of a former bakery that sold the real deal.

bb:

Did this former bakery sell any of your pies or baked goods, Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

Maybe (pause).

bb:

I think Karoz might want the family, our family, to re-rent the Noru property, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

You will stay in Big Sink for a spell. You just found Peter’s Mound or grave. You know more about Vortextra now. You know about the tie ins with Bunny Boy. Arkansas. Diamond… Hope. Fuchsia.

bb:

Speaking of Karoz…

Hucka D.:

Yes. Jeweler. 32 prims, reduced from 33. One void, then. SID. Syd.

bb:

Here we go…

Hucka D.:

You need to know more about the relationship between Jeogeot and Maebaleia/Satori. My father owned both continents, and built the Rabbit Hole to connect the two. That’s how The Bakers moved from one to the other.

bb:

Building on the theory that the two Rabbit Holes are actually one Rabbit Hole.

Hucka D.:

No theory. Fact. They are equal depth, equal width. Same. And they still can be used as such. Ancients created them.

bb:

What is the relationship between The Ancients and Peter, or Peter the Rabbit?

Hucka D.:

You must think back to ESBUM, and the two ponds which were actually one as well. Equally sized [in area]. Then lost just after the Missing Piece was lowered into them, uniting the two. ESBUM was soon lost as well… never recovered.

bb:

Is Esbum’s Missing Piece the same as the whole Rabbit Hole, then?

Hucka D.:

Yes, good.

bb:

It’s the 37th and final piece, added to the 36 already in the Temple of TILE. It was removed from the temple by Esbum, and de… um, lost its vital energy.

Hucka D.:

Right. Because it was removed from the 36, the square of the temple itself. You can place it back, though. Although Esbum is gone forever. You have Karoz now. And Wilsonia. But especially Karoz, your potential right hand man.

bb:

A true brother for Baker Bloch.

Hucka D.:

Yeah.

bb:

Well… I’m kind of rebuilding the temple in Aotearoa anyway. I suppose I could put the Missing Piece back in the temple.

Hucka D.:

And Karoz’s room.

bb:

Karoz? Did you mean Esbum’s Room?

Hucka D.:

No.

bb:

Karoz belongs in the temple?

Hucka D.:

*Yes.* He needs to feel protected. Warmed. With the Missing Piece back in its proper place, the temple can be used as a teleportation device. Put the [Rubie-Silver] map back on the front first, though.

bb:

I had just that thing in mind. Baker Blinker has the map…

Hucka D.:

You better log in again and allow Baker Blinker to give it to Baker Bloch, after she finds it herself.

bb:

Ok, thank you.

Hucka D.:

Thank you as well.


Gallery at the Temple of TILE: Returned, 01

Hopefully I’m not going to spend a lot of time describing new additions to the Aotearoa property in this series of posts, primarily featuring the Temple of TILE and inclusive gallery. But I really missed the temple in the meantime, and any land I live on doesn’t seem complete without a version of it. So here’s the newest model, a type of throwback version even.

We start with a long shot of the gallery to give a spacial relationship with the much larger (8 times larger, volume-wise) Edwardston Station *Sky*box Gallery. And, just to remind, the main (I suppose) Edwardston Station Gallery is still on the ground, and houses the same 100 collages of the 10×10 that the skystation version does. I know — very redundant. I’m thinking more and more one or the other has to go, and it may be the sky version that will be deleted. But let me just move on to more descriptions of the temple and the subject will most likely come up again.

So the temple “floats” about 15 meters above the top of the much larger cube. The temple is 30mx30mx30m; the big cube, or Edwardston Skystation, is 60mx60mx60m.

Snapshot1380_003smaller

Hucka D. and I chatted about this front of the temple a bit in a recent post. It’s the old one that was last present on, let’s see, could it be all the way back to the Rubi property? Maybe so, and if so, it hasn’t been rezzed in almost a year. More of the story of the front here, and how Baker Blinker “found” the silvery map on a cube in the very center of the temple, in fact, inside the spinning Tyle Cube itself.

Snapshot1380_004smaller

The new development or twist in that temple front story is the subsequent discovery of another registered population place that perhaps should have been on this map but wasn’t included for some reason. In fact, it’s the only village that would be included in the square on present topographic maps besides Rubie and Silver themselves. This would be Joplin. About the only thing in Joplin as far as interesting businesses go is Black Dog Design, which he says has something to do with all this in a sneaky kind of way. But the absence of Joplin is the main thing Hucka D. says to notice about this. He states this has something to do directly with the Joplin Tree that was suppose to grow from an imported seed in the middle of Big Sink, but for some reason didn’t, perhaps tragically so.

Well, I thought, if it’s not included on this map why not just add a marker to the map in some way to indicate its “missing” location. The result is what I’ve been calling the Joplin ball or sphere, whose ruddy mass is presently located partly inside the temple, as seen in the picture below. The other side juts out from the temple front and into the transparent map itself, marking the Joplin location (not pictured).

Now is it just me or does that yellow sphere in the nearby photograph seem to flying directly toward the location of the Joplin sphere? I put that photograph there several hours before thinking about creating the sphere; maybe it’s another “sign” that the Joplin archetype, as it extends into Big Sink, is a subject well worth further study.

Snapshot1380_008smaller

Another shot of the temple from above, looking down into the interior of the larger cube below.

Then a snapshot looking up from the bottom of the big cube toward the temple. I think it looks pretty cool way up there from this location.

Gallery at the Temple of TILE: Returned, 02

So let’s move inside the temple for a quick tour. This is the old floor 5 of the temple, as originally talked about in this June 2008 post. I’ve attempted to restore floor 5 to its original state, as described in that post, as much as is practical. Of course it could be modified again…

Snapshot1380_017smaller

Looking down into the inner chamber of the temple with its spinning Tyle Cube. One thing I did change was to add a 4th wall to this interior, which would be the yellow one on the opposite side of the temple from this vantage point on floor 5, as we’ll still call it here.

Snapshot1380_019smaller

A snapshot, then, from the original floor 3, another restoration project of sorts. The 4th wall mentioned above is directly in front of Baker here, transparent on this side. I’ve decided to make this wall non-phantom as well. Presently, there’s no easy way into this inner chamber. (Xmas tree already up!)

Snapshot1380_023smaller

On both floor 2 and floor 3 (keeping to old nomenclature, although technically there is no floor 4, at least as yet, in the new structure), I’ve decided to hang some of Edna’s newest OzLand photos, taken only last month.

Snapshot1380_025smaller

There’s the “Joplin Ball” again.

Snapshot1380_026smaller

In the grassy part surrounding the plad rugged part of this floor, I’ve planted a number of palm trees. Looks like one’s already fallen over. Anyway, this is an attempt to cut down on the overlap of transparent walls in the temple, an ongoing restoration problem. I won’t be able to eliminate the problem altogether, I don’t feel.

Snapshot1380_028smaller

Next!


Gallery at the Temple of TILE: Returned, 03

But here’s the really exciting, new addition to the temple now: an exhibit of more of Edna’s new photographs preliminarily called “Ruins in the Woods”. I won’t give out many details of the photographs yet except to say they are from two different locations in our area, both involving “ruins in the woods”. One of these locations has been “cleaned up” since the photographs, and the other, more important setting is certainly in danger of being cleaned up as well, but in a very negative way (non-protection of what one might consider a very valuable, historic site).

Snapshot1380_029smaller

The two framed photographs of the exhibit, which, by the way, is on the lowest floor of the temple (originally grassy state restored again here), are not by Edna but downloaded from an unrelated internet site. I promise not to sell them for my usual 20-30 rl cents. 🙂 Both were taken at the more important of the two locations. This particular one is of a ruined piano.

I’ll have more to say about this exhibit soon, hopefully, as well as some possible plans for the 60x60x60 cube just below involving music as well. As they say, stay tuned!

More snapshots of recent Edna OzLand photographs, this time from floor 2.

Then its 80 meters south to the open, lowest floor of the 60x60x60 cube. What to do with the Edna photos *here*? I really like how this space is set up, so I probably won’t make any major changes anytime soon. As I said before, though, I do probably have to make a decision about the 10×10: do the collages belong spread out amongst the various floors in the 60x60x60 cube, or should they stay in their original location on the property: the ground version of the Edwardston Station Gallery. I suppose if I had more visitors I could set up some kind of poll for them to help in the decision making.

Joplin Ball Seed, 01

“I think we should talk, however briefly, about the Joplin, um, ball, Hucka D.”

Hucka D.:

Um…

bb:

No comments?

Hucka D.:

Here’s Plant. (pause) Wait… OK, we’ll talk.

bb:

Is it a seed. *The* Seed?

Hucka D.:

Yes. Briefly.

bb:

What does this mean?

Hucka D.:

It was the only population place missing from the front of the Rubi Temple. Missing seed; missing tree; missing piece.

bb:

Is it a persimmon tree?

Hucka D.:

A God Tree.

bb:

And this was the seed planted at Voxtextra.

Hucka D.:

It wasn’t known as Vortextra, then. It was known as Pudding Hole.

bb:

But the seed didn’t sprout.

Hucka D.:

No. It worked in Rubisea. Didn’t in Jeogeot. Or it, er, worked in a different way. This was a different seed. The portal was opened.

bb:

But this is a different portal than the Rabbit Hole itself, because it’s not at the same location. The Rabbit Hole of Jeogeot is in Blackmount.

Hucka D.:

Rabbit Hole came first. It “merely” connected the two continents, as designed by my father Kelley the Bee Man. Teleporting wasn’t the automatic thing it is today. Kelley needed the Hole to properly fulfill his business ventures on the 2 continents he owned.

bb:

Now you say “owned”: this was pre-Linden? PL?

Hucka D.:

Yes. The Rabbit Holes are much older than the Vortextra Black Hole. Circa 2300 PL.

bb:

Wow. That is old. 2300 years before Second Lyfe actually began — Philip Rosedale…

Hucka D.:

You were just in Rosedale sim. Karoz, I mean. He saw shapes in the distance. He was scared. You shouldn’t have sent him to Sansara without preparing him first. He was cold; hungry. The campfire did not properly warm him. You give him a good winter coat and send him back sometime. Perhaps really soon, but perhaps not. You’ve got the Joplin Seed to worry about now.

*****

Hucka D.:

Rosedale, Kentucky. Not chance that it is right on top of Landsaw, Kentucky in Wolfe County. This points to the switch from PL, Pre-Linden, to PL, Post-Linden. Or, I guess better… no, let’s leave both at PL, just to confuse more and add a dash more humor. So the seed was brought over from Maebaleia, let’s see, around 500 PL? -500.

20Rosedale02

That’s the house where the toy avatars created their Confederation, just [after?] the Trivia Ratsuit contest that re-jump started your Second Lyfe. During Rosedale/Linden Second Lyfe, when it became with the “i” and all and lost the “y”, the toy avatars quickly became obsolete vehicles of motion. Shame. Blame shame.

bb:

You mentioned a confederation created in Pieland. I’m assuming, again, that Landsaw, Kentucky refers to both Pie*land*, and its founder or leader, Che*saw*. Landsaw, then.

Hucka D.:

At almost the same time Rosedale created SL. Actually it would have to overlap to some degree.

bb:

Back to the Rabbit Hole. You said they were Ancient.

Hucka D.:

Built by the Ancients as well, as hired in retro-time by daddy. The hole allowed St. Lemon of Troy to create his [revelationary] Revolution epistles for the Sinlands or Skinlands churches, 6 or 7 in all. Later they became the Sinklands churches and, after a time more, the Sunklands churches. But only several remain in any form atall. Otaki Gorge would be one. Peter was buried in the graveyard in back of the church. It was an open area church, somewhat like [what] is still set up in the bottomland there. And Lill Burn Valley hasn’t changed an awful lot. Many of these same avatars were there, since reincarnation applies to avatars as well as to users.

bb:

But what I’m getting out of the read of the St. Lemon of Troy post, Hucka D., is that the parishioners were nudists before the St. Lemon reformations, coming from the direction of Maebaleia.

Hucka D.;

That would be correct. They were nude because Jeogeot wasn’t really cold in those days. Still isn’t, of course, but that’s because there’s no weather at all now in this SL world. No [touchy/feely]. Now St. Lemon came along and said: this is wrong. Really wrong. You shouldn’t be walking about and bending over with all your naughty bits hanging out. So he sent clothes over til they could build their own clothing stores and factories. Skins became a hot seller, the thermal type. People thought they were cold all of a sudden. They forgot how warm Jeogeot actually is… was.

bb:

I have this feeling you’re going to say that golf was a popular sport then as well.

Hucka D.:

Well that’s the reason for the tree! Persimmon makes the best woods, and they saw that tree, that giant one coming from Maebaleia as well, as an unlimited source. They’d prune the thing now and then and make mucho golf clubs from the trimmed stuff. They already had the iron from the mine over in Jeremy for the middle clubs and putters and such.

bb:

Peter was, literally, buried under the 18th green, wasn’t he?

Hucka D.:

Actually it was the [middle of the] 9th [fairway]. His request. There were only 9 holes in the giant Sunklands golf course, then. Essentially the whole of Sunklands — Skinlands or Sinklands then, of course — was this course. That united the 6 or 7 churches, that activity. St. Lemon wrote his 9 and then 18 epistles with that framework in mind.
bb:

Hold on Hucka D.

*****

bb:

I know who grannie is, Hucka D. Grandma Death.

Hucka D.:

Vortextra.

bb:

Can we talk about what went wrong some more?

Hucka D.:

‘Nother night.

bb:

Thank you.


Joplin Seed Ball Sphere, 02

“Rabbit Hole, then, Hucka D. Two places in one.”

Hucka D.:

At once.”

bb:

This Rabbit *Hole*, then, was used by St. Lemon of Troy to disseminate the epistles [Maebaleia > Jeogeot], first the front 9 then the back 9 to complete.

Hucka D.:

Two places in one, at once. Lenin. Lemon. All Hail Lemon.

bb:

How exactly did that work, then?

Hucka D.:

Obviously since teleportation was more difficult in those days, way more, the contingent who wished to move between the two daddy owned continents had to stay fairly close to the holes in question. Sunklands was on one side [Jeogeot], and then the Lake District of Maebaleia on the other. It was like a telephone line that you could actually crawl through.

bb:

The hole was 300 meters deep… er, long? Or 600?

Hucka D.:

300. 3000?

bb:

So you just drop down the hole, say, in Ulyanovsk Oblast, and you’d come out, after a 300 meter drop, on the other side of the world in Blackmount. Like the proverbial hole to China.

Hucka D.:

Think so. I never saw it personally.

bb:

You said you use to live in Sunklands, though. With the alternate Bakers who were married and you were a purple or black alien woman avatar instead of a bee avatar. And you never saw the Rabbit Hole, then?

Hucka D.:

Oh of course I saw it. (pause)

bb:

Hucka D.? Well, anyway, reader, I would assume that’s how The Bakers, with this alternate Hucka D. in, er, tow, moved from Lake District, Maebaleia to Sunklands, Jeogeot, perhaps also carrying the Joplin seed/ball with them. Right, Hucka D.? (no answer). They would buy the 1024 parcel — perhaps even rent it — attempt to plant the seed, which might have been a bogus seed, like the one sold to Jack of Jack in the Beanstalk? “Hucka D.?” Anyway…

Hucka D. (interrupting):

2 seeds. 2 balls, baker b. One for now and one for later. Mulligan, then.

bb:

Obviously, then, this seed, this ball, is also identifiable with a golf ball. Hadn’t made that connection before. Was the seed or ball “planted” in the 18th hole, Hucka D.?

Plant:

I am here.

bb:

Hi Plant. Well???

Plant:

The end is the center, yes. End of the World. Armageddon. Amagon.

bb:

Arkansas. The end of the world really comes there.

Plant:

*Could* have come there. If the timelines weren’t altered. You don’t have Mena as a household name in this one. Thankfully.

bb:

I see. So my theories were right.

Plant:

Dead right. You don’t need all that explosed…um, exposed. You don’t need to light those wicks.

dynamite wicks

bb:

So Hucka D. was wrong when he said Arkansas should be the center. And perhaps Bunny Boy now as well.

Plant:

Bunny Boy is a work of genius. Beyond Marty. (smiles)

bb:

You seem to enjoy saying that.

Plant:

You’re darn toot’n. (smiling still)

bb:

But Marty now realizes this as well.

Plant:

It still digs at him. He’s not the greatest in the whole universe and all. Mozart, pheh.

bb:

Bunny Boy will never get the exposure it needs, Plant.

Plant:

You can help there.

bb:

I knew you were going to say that (blows out; shakes head).

Plant:

You have a pattern now. What’s the common link between Residents and [delete name] now in the temple?

bb:

Key Rock and Castle Rock, I suppose. The one and the twelve or thirteen. Baker’s Dozen.

Plant:

The temple provides the missing piece. Missing seed.

bb:

The Joplin Seed-Ball, you mean.

Plant:

You can still plant the seed. You can still save Second Lyfe. Third Life… that’s a key. The Key.

bb:

Marbles. Um, is the seed a marble?

Hucka D.:

We better end tonight, baker b. Thank you.

bb:

Thanks to you as well. And Plant.


4 Characters…

“Hucka D., take a look at the last 4 characters of this transmission from a screen at the Mos Ainsley Space Base. This was taken in May by Karoz. Its “2E2E”. *Now…* take a gander at what Petemond said for this blog near the very end of part 18 in mid-August. Here’s the post, and I’ll just cut and paste the quote I’m talking about here, which is the last line he said.

Ickle dickle do de dum don’t da. Weiner eeple to two e two e.

This is the same thing (!) — 2E2E equals “two e two e”. Is the terminal somehow generating the text of what Peter said??? Very interesting coincidence even if not!

And can we speak of the probable relationship between this “coincidence” and the “Ruins in the Woods” exhibit now showing at the Temple of TILE in Aotearoa?”

Hucka D.:

Crabwood has a deeper intensity than Chilbo. Already a debate has occurred between 2 [foundations] about the role of Sunklands in future development. A friendly debate, of course, for this is Chilbo. You are a focus, and through you The Residents… all residents. Of Jeogeot I mean (smiles).

Chilbo has a chance to open up to a quite considerably larger scale. Beef up… up a notch… and so on. You have played a small role in their thinking, mostly unconsciously but there. The powers have decided… well, there’s obviously 2 ways to go. Up or down. “Up” leads to a greater responsibility for Chilbo in a Linden run grid. Chilboans and Lindens will move forward more hand in hand. “Down” leads to increasing isolation for Chilbo, a condensing toward its center and small town perfection. Chilbo will shrink to eventually just Chilbo, and then probably just wink out of existence or turn into something totally new. This is the wave breaking now, baker b. Sunklands plays a small role in this as I said.

bb:

What’s this got to do with the transmission on the screen at Mos Ainsley?

Hucka D.:

Go back there…

bb:

… Knew you were going to say that.

Hucka D.:

This is a message from Petemond. Petemond came into existence after the death of Peter the rabbit. He was refound. And… that’s not the last time Petemond said that phrase. Check please.

bb:

Ok. Yeah, I vaguely remember something else. Later on, when I was considering buying land in the Egg Hill sink of Corsica Prime.

*****

bb:

Yes. Found it. This was immediately after the Corsica incident, as it was then called by you seemingly. But that was Peter, not Petemond, although the 2 seem to be 1 and the same.

Babble de boble hop tielly de winkle teu, e teu e.

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb:

There it’s “teu e teu e”. Phonetically identical, though. And, again, this is the last thing Peter or Petemond said that night. This was still considerably before my move to Aotearoa, so the New Zealand influence couldn’t have been so strong. Speaking of “e”s I have one snapshot to share with you tonight, maybe another in a minute.

Snapshot1382_003smaller

Hucka D.:

Black and white; on and off. Karoz stares at the “e” from one direction, Baker Bloch the other. This is also the choice Chilbo faces now. Which way to look at the “E”. Do they look through Karoz’s home body eyes or do they share, in part, Baker Bloch’s more western-type Sunklands vision? The Korean Channel is a division point. Does Noru remain the limit of Greater Chilbo? Karoz is Noru. Karoz is Chilbo. And… what do you do with Karoz now? His fate hangs on the fate of others [as well].

Snapshot1382_005smaller

bb:

What does this have to do with the “2E2E”?

Hucka D.:

That is a bird. Language of The Birds. Uniko, da.

bb:

Why was it on the monitor at Mos Ainsley?

Hucka D.:

Obviously someone is trying to get in touch with you.

1846_5

bb:

I think this has to do with The Residents as well.

Hucka D.:

Plant is unavailable tonight. We better end.

bb:

Thank you.


Mos Ainsley Revisited, 01

Well, of course Karoz wanted to revist Mos Ainsley after finding out about the Petemond transmission on computer terminals there, or what certainly *seemed* like Petemond attempting contact.

Some warm up shots of the Space Base before moving to the upper room with the terminals. Also: one more very important terminal was discovered by Karoz this same night… I’ll get to that in part 3 of this series!

Snapshot1386_003smaller

A space base shuttle (interior above), that you can apparently get in and drive all the way to the mainland 2 sims north and east, if you want to.

Snapshot1386_004smaller

Cul-de-sac.

Snapshot1386_013smaller

Door can’t be opened — built into wall. Many sealed locks in the base cannot be opened as well. Some can, some can’t.

Snapshot1386_014smaller

This one can.

Snapshot1386_015smaller

Snapshot1386_020smaller

Snapshot1386_021smaller

Snapshot1386_022smaller

Operating room? A nod to the famous 17 min. alien autopsy film from 1947?

Snapshot1386_023smaller

Next!


Mos Ainsley Revisited, 02

It took Karoz a bit to re-find the computer room, and to enter he had to rez a cube elsewhere and sit on it while I, his user, physically moved the cube into the room. Doors to it were still locked strangely, but I didn’t try very hard to examine all possible entrances and exits admittedly.

Nice 3rd story view of crater walls entirely encircling the space base.

Snapshot1386_029smaller

Close up of one of the 6 terminals in the room. 5 contain this same data line of 112 characters ending with “2E2E” now much discussed elsewhere in this blog. According to the judgment of both Hucka D. and myself, this simply has to be a transmission from Petemond in some way, since he’s also ended two other “transmissions” with phonetic equivalents to “2E2E’, as outlined in this post just above.

Snapshot1386_030smaller

Snapshot1386_031smaller

The lone terminal of the 6 not containing the “Petemond” data line. This is instead a 2 line stream called “Output Bound”, found on the terminal to the right of the first pictured above, and on the same table facing out toward the crater walls.

Snapshot1386_032smaller

The other 2 tables of the room, with 2 similarly placed monitors are against the window-less right and left walls behind the front table.

Snapshot1386_035smaller

View of this upper room in relationship to other surrounding, lower structures.

Snapshot1386_036smaller

Rrelationship with crater walls…

Snapshot1386_037smaller

Mysterious low-res map between the front two terminals of the room. A map of Mos Ainsley itself? Might be.

Snapshot1386_040smaller

Here’s a comparison shot.

Snapshot1386_041smaller

Karoz lengthens his draw distance to take in the rocks perched on the far wall. Do even the alignment of these rocks in relationship to this room have something to do with Petemond’s message?

Snapshot1386_057smaller

Next!


Mos Ainsley Revisited, 03

*Then* if that’s not enough, Karoz finds the alien that he looked for before in May upon his first visit, but apparently didn’t look for thoroughly enough. For there it was, just as Baker Bloch photographed it way back in October 08, for a long time his only journey to this now well traveled southernmost of mainland continents. Jeogeot I mean, of course. Karoz is admittedly a little embarrassed for missing this obviously big piece of the puzzle now.

Snapshot1386_059smaller

Two terminals again, one with the Petemond code or transmission ending in “2E2E’, and the second, to the right, with the 2 line “Outbound Feed”, once more. In addition, we have two new lines of code on the bigger screen above the two terminals, the top one called “Sequence ID” and the one just below that “Resource Locator.” Additional bits of information on this bigger screen also seem to indicate that the alien is considered humanoid, but of unknown species. Just like Karoz himself, I suppose — he can identify.

*Is* Karoz partly of this same unknown species of alien, supposedly on his mother’s side? He must find out!

Snapshot1386_061smaller

Snapshot1386_068smaller

And then the last seemingly important find for the night involves this greenhouse of sorts, growing three different types of plants as far as Karoz could tell: tomatoes, some kind of grass…

Snapshot1386_074smaller

… and then more toward the back some type of sprouts, it appeared, on three shelves.

Snapshot1386_075smaller

Nothing on the middle shelves, though.

Snapshot1386_077smaller

“Hucka D., I’m googling the first 6 numbers of the Petemond Code from Mos Ainsley and then the first 7 numbers to see what comes up, moving up to first 8 in a second. The above link is really only significant find with the first 7… this may be the end. ‘Who’s that girl?'”

“Let’s try a different approach, then. There are 112 total characters in this feed, the 2E2E on a 4th line and then 3 lines before this of 36 characters each, for a total of 108. 108 is an important geomantic number, Hucka D. For example, it is the sum of the Numbers of LOST.

“Actually, Hucka D., this ties in directly with The Residents.”

Hucka D.:

Yes? Can I type in a backwards question mark here?

bb:

Oh right. Yes, 2E2E is unicode for a backwards question mark. Thank you Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

bb:

Right. I think this too has something to do with MessiaenSphere. Messiaen was into the birds… for the birds. Tui… birds.

Hucka D.:

The Birds. Byrds.

bb:

Someone may be eyeballing this blog soon… probably not but…

Hucka D.:

Hucka D.:

Love birds and Hate byrds.

Byrds and bees as well.

Hucka D.:

Byrds… 8 miles. Distance between Crabwood and Chilbolton. Plus 1/2.

Hucka D.:

Byrd… Phish. (pause) Bowl.

bb:

Getting back to Mos Ainsley, you said in this post and also this post that Mos Ainsley was used to escape Jeogeot during a 2001 catastrophy which destroyed then Chilbol.

Hucka D.:

Hucka D.:

He is the town that was sent.

Why is that message at Mos Ainsley? It apparently was sent by Petemond, no?

Hucka D.:

Oh look who’s here… Plant.

Plant:

Hi baker Beach.

bb:

Hey Mr…. um, Plant.

Plant:

Like I said, Plant is fine.

bb:

What do you…

Plant (interrupting):

Joplin Tree.

bb:

Have I…?

Plant (interrupting again):

You have found the missing seed. In your temple. Hucka D. had all this laid out ahead of time.

bb:

Is the Joplin seed the same as Karoz’s Fuchsia Diamond?

Plant:

Close! It is Jasper.

bb:

Carter’s Jasper? (smiles)

Plant:

Funny. But: yes.

bb:

Agate?

Plant:

Half in, half out.

bb:

Of the temple, you mean. The ball sticks through the wall.

Plant:

I know that.

bb:

Is it The Rainbow Sphere?

Plant:

You are close… closing in. Joplin Tree. Was it planted and if so did it grow? Do you know yet?

bb:

Not sure. Did you plant it?

Plant:

Maybe.

bb:

Did you live on what is now the Hammer of the Gods property or properties?

Plant:

Yes. I did. Took a while but I procured that land, yes.

bb:

After a, er, purification process.

Plant:

You could say that. I was 17 and 59 at once. Retired. 2nd sink gone. Like will happen to you.

bb:

Yes, I was thinking about that today, as [I’m sure] you know. The Oolamoo-Drews Reservior and what it represents. Morning and afternoon. Lunch Wall. 10 feet lower on the Drews side. Relatively barren verses fertile. But in the end, as you say, only Big Sink left. It’s not… well… (pause)

Plant:

(pause) The Arab.

bb:

Hold on…

*****

According to your “city”, Mr. Plant, Drew is the “morning side.”

Plant (repeating):

Arab. Barra… (pause)

bb:

You related to this guy, Mr. Plant Variant?

Plant:

Maybe.

bb:

Looks like famous jewelers took over his son’s NYC mansion.

Plant:

Carter, yes.

bb:

It says Cartier.

Plant:

Ok. But Karoz remains unrelated.

bb:

Karoz, then, didn’t work for Cartier in a virtual sense.

Plant:

Not really.

bb:

But: yes?

Plant:

Yes?

bb:

Hmmm… Sure you aren’t related? (no answer). How about this writer, this Richard Plant?

Plant:

(pause) Maybe the railroad man more.

bb:

Interesting that this Morton Freeman Plant sold his New York City mansion for 100 dollars and a pearl string necklace valued at 1 million dollars at the time. (pause). History of the Plant surname for ya, Mr. Plant. (pause). And Plant variants… interesting, perhaps.

*****

bb:

Well, I’ll have to look over all those articles in more detail later. Care to add anything else to that right now?

Plant:

I was chosen to take care of the seed.

bb:

I still don’t…

Plant (interrupting):

A very important job.

Hucka D. (coming in quickly):

You know more about Plant now, don’t you think? You know the family name comes from a vegetative soul. Which brings in… well, Soybean Dean. I knew him as well.

bb:

Again: interesting. I think that it was mentioned early in in my talks with Plant that he knew this Soybean.

Hucka D.:

He knew the origin of the family name. The plants spoke to him. Destroy Zen City they commanded. Now! (snickers)

bb:

Plant was kind of born between Crabwoo and Chilbol, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Yes. Child of both. Red and blue-green. Two continents as well. Both owned by daddy, you see.

bb:

I was going to ask about that tonight as well. Are these 2 continents actually *1* continent?

Hucka D.:

In a way… as an e is also a schwa.

bb:

But the 32 is a difference. The Korean Channel.

Hucka D.:

Could say that. Difference maker. Did you make her.

bb:

I guess that’s the “E” as well.

Hucka D.:

Right. Check on…

bb:

Right.

Hucka D.:

Chilbo goes up or down now. They are interested in Sunklands, Nowtown, Korean Channel and the rest of Jeogeot, including Mos Ainsley… or not. Decision time. Wave breaking.

bb:

Plant is beyond, isn’t he.

Hucka D.:

Maybe not. Not decided yet. Up in the air. You better log off now. Or log on.

bb:

Thank you. Very interesting. Thanks to Plant as well.
