Baker Blinker Blog Book VII: Jeogeot V 01a (April/May 2011 01 of 02)


Pietmond Exodus, Path 01: Crabwoo

Pietmond is techinically no more as of this writing. Two replacement villages, both considerably smaller in scope, have cropped up to replace it. The first described here is Crabwoo, already a blog category containing a number of related posts.

Since the structures have almost been totally switched out since I took the below pictures, I’ll just save a fuller description for a future post. But just for the record, we have, at this initial stage, Gallery Jack on the west side of the property, and the Pietmond South Gallery to its east.

Actually a third structure, the oft used Slum Econo Apts. crafted by the famous Arcadia Asylum, is found on the grounds still. Here we see part of the cobblestone walkways connecting it with Gallery Jack and Pietmond South Gallery.

Baker Bloch sits atop Peter’s Hill (not to be confused with Pietmond’s Peter’s Mound). More on all that soon enough!


Pietmond Exodus, Path 02: Lakeview (Postmond?)

And now we have the second replacement village for Pietmond, the somewhat larger (than Crabwoo) collective I decided to name Lakeview, another descriptive term. Below is pictured the center of the town, if you will, but more just a conjunction of walkways with a bus stop for now.

Newest version of the Eternally Bickering Newton Jasper Garden, Lakeview style.

There are 2 main walkways in the village, which I haven’t named yet. Below is the eastern and higher of the 2.

Then the northern edge of the western/lower walkway is seen in the next photograph. Both walkways border several art galleries as follows:

Western/Lower: SoSo West (Mike Casey), Norum (Julie Sadler), and Gallery in the Rocks (Stegokitty)
Eastern/Upper: SoSo East (baker b.), Something to CHRO About (Kenneth Rougeau)

All of these galleries formerly existed in Pietmond in one form or another. In addition to the 5 galleries, we also have Home Orange and Home o’ Fibs transposed from Pietmond, both off the eastern/upper walkway. Home Orange contains the office of village caretaker Baker Bloch, once more. Home o’ Fibs still holds the Big Island/Comet Archipelago related objects, as it has in most previous incarnations.

Steps connecting the two main walkways of Lakeview.

Amazing view of Lake Gnoma from atop SoSo West, where the bar formerly sitting there in Pietmond has also been restored. Had to, don’t you think!?

From the below pictures, you can also see that the town is slotted into the northeast corner of a sizable forest as well.

Moon rising directly above Baker’s Home Orange and also the Newton statue while he is snapping the above photos. He took it as a good omen. Seems directly related to the similarly tinted Newton as well, a kind of solar figure.

Again, more on all this soon enough!


Crabwoo/Lakeview: Things to do.

Both communities are essentially finished, first phase.

Create pod tour of Lakeview and perhaps even Crabwoo?

Downsize from premium to basic membership tomorrow.

Make map of Lakeview and put it near art kiosk.

Advertise Lakeview Art Crawl galleries.

Hucka D.:

You have some ‘splor’n to do!

bb:

Thanks!

Biggie

“We have a bit more time tonight, Hucka D. Carrcass-5 is coming up. I wonder what that’ll be all about?”

Hucka D.:

Gold. Skillet. 2nd. 1st and 2nd. Baker and Baker, and Squirrel. Confederation. Mythos square root. Humble Pie.

bb:

Thanks. Dr. Who seems to be more important now.

Hucka D.:

Satan Pit. When Jack moves back into the pit, so the legends go, then Pietmond will soon cease to exist. And so it has come to past. Pass, I mean. Pietmond is gone. Pit empty.

bb:

You’re talking about when I installed Gallery Jack near the center of the Pietmond sink earlier this month, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Yes. Read over all old Pietmond notes. Where has it taken you to this point? Where are you now? You are in Lakeview and Crabwoo. Pietmond still lives, just divided. Art and quote unquote religion, as you say. Very different spaces.

bb:

Crabwoo was a great place in its day. Bigger than Chilbo?

Hucka D.:

Yes. Crown jewel. The Blue Feather Sea was seen as prime vacation bathing spot for the rich and filthy. 12 or 13 it was, or still is, as opposed to the 1 of Rubisea. Rubisea is the C, the Note. Red Sea. Red C, as in a letter. The stream that still empties into it…

bb:

Unnasty Branch, you mean…

Hucka D.:

Yes. It use to be the color of blood. Very nasty indeed, then. Red as blood. Red C. Middle C. Note.

bb:

But the Blue Feather Sea then represents all chromatic notes. The chromatic scale, plus a 13th perhaps. Baker’s dozen and undozen both.

Hucka D.:

It is the Blue Feather. It is the Blue Earth. Curse upon Crabwoo laid down by that one bad ass mofo Blue Feather Douglas, former wacky teacher now just wacko. Built his TILE Temple.

bb:

What is the role of TILE in Crabwoo’s much more glorious past, Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

The TILE Temple was there, true enough, but it wasn’t Douglas’ temple, which was further south and on the Blue Feather Sea itself. This was the original temple.

bb:

I’m confused a bit. Pietmond had this identical temple sitting atop the bottom of the sink and the labyrinth. Did Pietmond’s temple come from Crabwoo? Fascinating, if so, then.

Hucka D.:

Yes. Peter brought the design to Pietmond. He helped redesign the TILE Cathedral into the TILE Temple.

bb:

*He* made the labyrinth at the center of Pietmond, then.

Hucka D.:

True enough. A bit of information you might not know if you hadn’t given up Pietmond for Crabwoo, in part.

bb:

The Tower of TILE beside it… dormitories?

Hucka D.:

Yes, at one time.

bb:

So, let me see, Peter attended Crabwoo University — Woo U. — at around the same time as Karoz, lured there by the presence of famous lawyer Blue Feather Douglas. He studied law, but Blue Feather D. was already becoming absorbed into the game/philosophy/religion of TILE and not as much concerned with teaching.

Hucka D.:

In the Curse Course, he did take both Peter and Karoz to The Moon of Maebaleia, where they found the truth about the Big E supposedly coming from the Blue Feather Sea.

bb:

It was a fish.

Hucka D.:

Yes. Later on it was decided to turn the fish image into the one of the Big E or Big Schwa. This was protection.

bb:

From what? And who made this decision?

Hucka D.:

The fish was quite disgusting. And it was inadvertently killed when removed from the sea and placed in the open — again just for a short time — at the center of the university. An uproar occurred over the death: why had the fish been laid out in the open for any spell of time?

bb:

How did they catch it?

Hucka D.:

It was sick. It was dying. It had almost given up the ghost. It decided to give itself to Crabwoo, to become the stuff of legends. And so it has come to past.

bb:

So the fish was called Big E.

Hucka D.:

Biggie, originally[ though].

bb:

How did the fish become the “E”?

Hucka D.:

Certain patterns upon its skin indicated the link, which was preordained. It had the markings of “E” on one side and [“Schwa”] on the other.

bb:

Was it sentient?

Hucka D.:

Oh, very much so (!) Its presence in the central mall began to effect all around. Warp space, even. The curse began there. Crabwoo began its slow, downward curve after Biggie’s death. It was laid out in the mall.

bb:

So it was put in a giant aquarium in the mall for all to see.

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb:

Did TILE develop directly from this fish? Biggie?

Hucka D.:

*Yes.*

bb:

Was it… sorry.

Hucka D.:

It was caught in the sim of Miccall in ’63. Very slowly moving. Wanted to be caught, as I indicated.

bb:

So let me see… blue E devolves to green T to red L to yellow I to end it all. Just like Crabwoo devolved after Biggie — Blue E in effect — was placed in its center as a sort of freak show.

Hucka D.:

Correct enough[ once more].

bb:

What is the role of Chilbo in all this?

Hucka D.:

Chilbo became the benificiary or output of the curse inputted in Crabwoo during that fateful time. Chilbo is the output of Crabwoo. Plain and simple.

bb:

What about Fleep Tuque and Cosimo Urbanowicz, the actual founders of Chilbo? I’m sure they’ve never heard of Crabwoo, the resonant spot on Jeogeot’s twin continent of Maebaleia.

Hucka D.:

No they haven’t. They merely moved into a spotlight that was already provided. Better, a sun lamp providing growth in a certain, selected spot. Crawboo lost what Chilbo gained. Eventually Crabwoo was no more and Chilbo was still prospering.

bb:

Why am *I* in Crabwoo now, Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

To find out about the origins of TILE. To understand the curse and the Chilbo-Crabwoo connection, input and output. To attempt to rekindle a spark. To find out what Crabwoo had and Chilbo still lacks. TILE. Center. Biggie. Something horrible happened to Biggie. Crabwoo never recovered.

bb:

Thank you. We’ll continue another night.


North and East of Lakeview


Around Crabwoo, 01

Baker Bloch stares out a window of the newly placed TILE Temple in Crabwoo at distant twirly color-things. “Hafta visit that location soon,” he notes.

Interesting hillocks separating Baker’s property from adjacent abandoned land. Could that heavy-on-the-plywood-prims house on the land be some kind of bleedthrough of historic Crabwoo, perhaps a part of the campus, once more? A thought crossed my mind that it could have been the president’s/chancellor’s home in those former times. Obviously just a guess, though.

But at any rate it’s nice Baker and my other alts have access to that land, unlike much of the surrounding area made up of banned property in contrast.

What remains of the presence of the formerly huge Dazed and Confused complex in Crabwoo, its obvious center. Now all we have is a a box structure providing a landmark to their new location on an estate sim called Pacific Dunes, many miles above Maebaleia and Crabwoo and inside the Great Grid Void. I’ll have to visit at some point, but I can’t help thinking in a perfect virtual world the associated stores never would have left Malyshkin.

Then comes some pictures of a structure quite far underneath the land’s surface that Baker took, thinking it also might be part of a greater mystery surrounding Crabwoo. As Wilsonia is checking behind Baker now, the structures might lie even at sea level, since it is considerably below the water table underneath the southwest corner of Vyachislav. Just as a reminder or refresher, when I visited the Crabwoo location in June 2009 for the first time (almost 2 years ago now!), the “town” appeared to fill both the Malyshkin sim and then also Vyacheslav to its west, as I discuss in a post at the time.

As Wilsonia is also discovering now, the structure is both created and owned by Logo Bombastic. In checking Logo’s profile, I also see that he was only born last year in SL, making a connection with historic Crabwoo less likely. Still interesting to note something embedded that deep in virtual crust, and colored almost entirely in the primary colors red, yellow, blue. Something to do with Piet Mondrian again, or perhaps Pietmond through him? A chance.

Church of Saints Polyeuct & Nearchos at the very center of Vyacheslav. I have visited this parcel once before through Baker Bloch, but it has radically changed since then, although the church theme has been retained. The land description is as follows:

“The Arimathean Orthopraxic Christian Church of Saints Polyeuct & Nearchos (worship services to resume shortly). Includes a lower level crypt with the Funerary Shrine of Cynthia Ruiz.”

Baker missed the crypt, but I’ll take some more pictures of the place soon enough, I believe. I’m in Crabwoo for quite some time, it seems, as it has become a new, virtual center, at least for ongoing mythology research.

Reaching the shores of the Blue Feather Sea and a look back at my nearby Tower of TILE.

Biking into the Blue Feather.

In the Blue Feather.


Around Crabwoo, 02

We follow Baker heading toward the Blue Feather Sea again the next night, this time in a more westerly direction. Only a 100 meters or so from his Crabwoo parcel he finds evidence of remant TILE energy in the area in the form of a 4 color game called Cheesy, along with some matching seating.

Almost directly above this he also discovers an empty sky platform with remarkable views of the Blue Feather Sea.

Now some details of what Baker found in the Blue Feather itself this particular night. Turns out that he focused on the Jael sim tucked in the northeast corner of the sea. Inside he found this hillock with a sharp cliff near Jael’s own northeast corner…

… and five curious dots arranged on the sea floor more in the opposite corner of the sim.

Jael as a whole.

(to be continued!)


Loose Thoughts…

* bring back “Wall of Ass.” Perhaps put on east side of Lakeview, behind SoSo East. But more logical place would be somewhere in Crabwoo now.

* study more of the Blue Feather Sea patterns, following once more in the footsteps of Blue Feather Douglas (down a path to wacko-ness?)

* further tie together 3 Gypsies of Maebaleia’s Moon with 3 Gypsy town names assoc. with Grassy throughout US. Obvious that Grassy and Gypsy (Purse) are directly involved. Think of song “Pluto” as well.

* Blue Feather Douglas is grandfather to Karoz, as Gypsy is BFD’s daughter. Separated from father’s continent and created The Moon of the continent. Gel contained the Heart (Rock It) of mysteries. Arab ship = Barracuda. Wilsons. Perhaps of Wilsonia.

* think more of BFD’s ties with the Satori Shallows and Chesterton. Keep in mind that Chesterton, England is site of another crop circle mentioned in this blog, related perhaps to the enneagram and DSotR again. Chesterton is also another city that BFD may have made virtually real inside SL, like Oliver, Wisconsin. Or perhaps both in one (polarized through Green Bay between them winning the 2011 Super Bowl).

* Think, then, of Oliver, WI and also Foxboro in same county. Think of Foxboro as seemingly referenced in this section of The Residents’ wikipedia article as a Resident (instead of actual Resident John Fox?). Direct quote:

On the May 21 they announced on their website that their first North America tour since Demons Dance Alone for a project entitled The Bunny Boy is set to begin on October 9 in New York – later an earlier date was added for Santa Cruz. Soon, it was announced that the tour will also include Europe, starting November 13. On June 3, the Residents.com website boasted the planned release of The Bunny Boy which was released on September 1. The website had posted information in which Foxboro claimed this would be a Farewell Tour; it was later revealed that this was nothing more than a mistake by Foxboro.

Think also of OK and Fox-Clem-Wilson-Wheeler-Keller-Heald conjunction.Wilson-Fox again, like in Wilsonia Foxclaw.

* BFD as grandfather to Karoz ties into his development as a way for Mossmen, such as Gene Fade, to safely walk the forbidden territory known as Grandaddy Mtn beyond Herman and Frank Parks. Must be more of an assoc. there. Maybe tie this to Klutzy Kamper and his love of Grandaddy as well.

* Develop idea of a chromagraphic gallery in Crabwoo. Think about this more now. Follows up on CHRO (Crow) and Blue Feather Sea as 12-13 (notes, like 12 chromatic colors) as opposed to the one RED C of Rubisea. Unnasty Branch (lone feeder stream of Rubisea) not nasty now but clear.

* Creature known as Biggie or “Big E” was taken to Crabwoo after capture, true, which started the curse (Gypsy Purse > Gypsy Curse). But another, twin Biggie may have been hidden on The Moon, in conj. with the 50 meter “E” island found there upon Karoz’s return to that collection of sims. Gypsies hid second Biggie fish from BFD, who wanted to study it again. May have been female (Eve from Eva) of male taken to Crabwoo (Adam, or perhaps even Oliver (!)).

* Rabbit Hole formerly connecting Jeogeot and Maebaleia has been sealed on the side of the latter. Give maps shown the timeline of when this was sealed. Fully opened with Baker Bloch initially found it in Ulyanovysk Oblast in August 09.

* Further connection of Ulyanovysk O. with sim Uli where Baker Bloch (and Hucka Doobie) ascended to Lemon World near beginning of this blog. Assoc. further Lemon with Lennon.

* study more the other lakes of Maebaleia’s Lake District. Rubisea and Blue Feather Sea have already been connected. Others?

* think more of the deep coding within the phrase “This is the girl”, surfacely seen in INLAND EMPIRE, among other places. The girl is LOST’s Kate in another dimension, another “Eve” (to Jack’s “Adam”?). Skeletons in cave are described as Adam and Eve, but they may not be present inside One Pink. Black and white rocks with them.

Photos proving intimate relationship of Lakeview and Crabwoo? More soon!


Finger Prince

“Quick ideas, then.”

bb:

Thanks for starting.

Hucka D.:

You’re welcome. Blue Feather Douglas visited the Finger Prince while he was in Jael. Reason for the sim name[ you see].

bb:

Finger Prince was a resident? A Resident?

Hucka D.:

We’ll see if he’s available to talk to us, even.

bb:

That might be interesting (!)

Hucka D.:

We’ll see, though. You’re understanding, at any rate, that you simply had to move to Crabwoo, and that it’s the most central place left in SL for ya. Can’t stand alone — or can it?

bb:

I’ll cross that bridge later.

Hucka D.:

There are several available options. (pause)

bb:

Yes?

Hucka D.:

Crabwoo cannot be given up now, since you don’t have Pietmond to fall back on. You’re without a net now.

bb:

Lakeview would go first[, then].

Hucka D.:

Finger Prince represents a limit.

bb:

What’s Beyond the Sea, Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

I believe that’s a song. Or a movie. Can’t remember. Story of Patsy Cline wasn’t it?

bb:

Bobby Darin, I believe. Mac the Knife Darin.

Hucka D.:

He died on the Dark Side of the Moon, baker b.

bb:

2 minute hole?

Hucka D.:

We can talk about Carrcass-5 on this blog if you wish. Tin Soldier Man.

bb:

Okay, I’ll do that soon, then.

Hucka D.:

The Tinman needs a heart. Lost it. All metal. Like a robot.

bb:

He is indeed beyond the sea. Is he the Finger Prince?

Hucka D.:

No (pause).

bb:

I assume that when Blue Feather Douglas visited the Finger Prince in Jael, he thought he was going nuts.

Hucka D.:

The Finger Prince showed him 40 things which are all 1 thing. 40 schedules which are 1 schedule which are no schedules atall.

bb:

Then The Moles.

Hucka D.:

The [Blue Feather] Sea may be Marion, which is east, central and west all in one, blue sum. Rion, then.

bb:

Rion.

Mrs. Sea

Rubi, then Blue Feather

Patirubi Resident: Is she destined to line the Great Rubi Forest with floating island art? May-be. Break a leg, PR!

Out of Rubi and into the Blue Feather: maze of Arcadia Asylum sewer tubes found on the western shore, in Murmur. Don’t know if the sim is named for the REM album or not; strange, if so, given all the surrounding sims have Russian associated names.*

Below finds us looking from inside a rock at the tubes. Draw a bit further back and they become hidden within these same rocks once more.

View from underneath.

Baker sits in the middle of the main junction of tubes in the complex. Tubes to the left and back lead down to the beach area from whence he came; tubes to the front and right lead up to a room filled with green sewage not pictured in this post.

Two additional tubes lead off from this room, then. Below, Baker finds a rock impasse in the longer of the two…

… but which is suppose to lead to this manhole (central dark dot) about 100 meters inland, on a grassy hill above the shore.

The main entrance to the tube complex seems to be from this nicely landscaped area where Baker presently sits at a tiki bar. No time for drinking tonight, though — more exploring to do.

Baker finds an additional entrance to the tube system hidden by rocks from the tiki bar area and partially underwater.

One tube jutting into another tube. Such a familiar sight for Baker, given he created the same type of overlap with the various turns of the Useless Tube, last seen in Pietmond.

Looking from this entrance back into the Blue Feather Sea. Baker can make out the splotchy sea floor patterns found in Miccall just south of Murmur, a protected sea sim.

Baker couldn’t resist. He heads into Miccall. Many more mysteries may lie within its waters. He still follows in the steps of super intelligent but perhaps also super wacky Blue Feather Douglas, Karoz’s maternal grandfather.

==========

* Hucka D. later relayed to me that the tube system, in slightly modified form, also existed in pre-Linden Maebaleia, and was known as the Russian Matrix, not to be confused with the Rushian Matrix I assume. He promises more info soon on that.


The controversial Orange House…

… in Crabwoo. I decided to delete the structure soon after taking these pictures.

Heading toward the temple from a new walkway.

House of Truth has also been duplicated in Crabwoo, minus the sun porch.

“Let’s bring in Hucka D.”

Hucka D.:

Good to delete Orange House and also Home Orange from Crabwoo. It is not really a town any longer. It all centers around the temple.

bb:

Thanks for that, Hucka D. I think I may give Lakeview 2 more weeks and then just focus on Crabwoo. “Mrs. Sea” is a fetus now.

Hucka D.:

She is the Birthday Boy/Girl.*

bb:

It all ends in Marion. You can’t get to Lulu that way. It ends at 10 and can’t get to 11. But there are 14 altogether, like the 14 sides of Shakespeare’s Globe.

Hucka D.:

11 is definitely missing. Lulu is under the bridge, under the lawn.

bb:

Missing Piece[ once more].

Hucka D.:

I’m looking… sorry.

bb:

I’m looking over some of these old Chatting A-Z posts, Hucka D. Specifically, let’s see — staring with this one, and filed under Carrcass-1.

Hucka D.:

Bill me later.

Beggar’s Bowl

Yet another possible, official Maebaleia sink, this time very near Crabwoo — part of Great Crabwoo, really. If we were up to 12, is this the 13th? Baker’s Dozen Sink?

The sink lies mainly in Moliman, the sim caddycorner to Malyshkin in a southwesterly direction. It also creeps into Phasmogora. I’ll attempt to give more details later, and I think I will call it Baker’s Dozen Sink for now.* The center of the proposed sink looks to be about 350 meters from the Crabwoo’s TILE Temple, but it’s even considerably closer to the southern shores of the Blue Feather Sea.

How many sinks are there like this on the continent? Perhaps too many to even count.

==========

* Since the Beggars Bowl sim is very nearby, with its re-creation of a Mayan temple that may have also been the stronghold of Blue Feather Douglas according to Hucka D., could the actual, original name of this sink be the same? “Beggars Bowl” is also the title of a recent track off Chapel Hill based math rock band Polvo’s newest album, “In Prism”.


Vistas

The first vista comes from Maebaleia, but considerably south of current home base of Crabwoo, and below the continent’s Lake District as a whole. Here we are in Incubus on a parcel called “Nother World”, owned by Aria Tisch. In fact, it looks like Aria owns almost the entire sim according to prim count. In her picks, she desrcibes Nother World as a place of, “exploring, fishing, RLV, traps, forests, magic and whimsy.” Below we find Baker perched on the edge of a green pond teaming with various aquatic life and lined around with colorful trees and bushes.

Back home in Crabwoo now, Baker sits on a hump of ground beside the Dazed and Confused shack near his temple, admiring the grassy expanse of a neighbor’s parcel.

Gazing down at the southern stretches of the Blue Feather Sea while sitting underneath a high prim English oak straddling the Phasmogoria-Guiler sim line.


Moon Temple

Baker attempts to love Maebaleia by biking on one of its several paved routes. A monitoring police officer doesn’t help his pessimism — he finds the ride mostly bland and the scenery basically devoid of interest.

But a return trip to the Blue Feather Sea and the Crabwoo area quickly lifts his spirits.

Checking out the baby blue whale again on land owned by the Aeryglow Wildlife company, on a hill above the lower part of the Blue Feather Sea, in Phasmogoria once more.

Swinging on the shores. Great spot!

Rare closeup picture of a mugg’n Baker Bloch. I believe the expression animating his face at the time is called “repulsed.”

While in the neighborhood, Baker visits the huge Mayan temple-pyramid that is the supposed former home of none other than Blue Feather Douglas, perhaps the most powerful avatar to have existed in any virtual reality, even including non-terrestrial ones. A working theory, anyway.

But first a quick tour of the Blue Feather Sea in an available sailboat.

Baker is soon back inside the temple, checking out its intricacies. Like this moon globe found near its top, and attached to a chain, apparently for raising and lowering purposes.

But then Baker moves further up to find that the chain is attached to nothing at the top except the moon itself. Hmmm…

Blood on the floor of a hidden room in the pyramid’s tip insinuates a hideous deed involving perhaps animal or even human sacrifice. Sacrifice to the moon? Recent?


Lemon.

[joined in progress]

bb:

Of course I want to know more about the Blue Feather curse itself.

Hucka D.:

Well… it obviously drained Crabwoo of energy, so it was effective. Did it all go to Chilbo? Maybe in the first place. How odd that you ran across Chilbo and Crabwoo when the balance was exactly even. But when the Crabwoo energy was exhausted, perhaps
at the end of November according to your research, then Chilbo had nothing left to feed upon. It too began to shrink. Already, Parktown had taken its role as the guardian of the Hanja Infohub. You just happened to come along at exactly the right time. You have timing, if not much else.

bb:

Hey, watch it.

Hucka D.:

But now you’re attempting to rekindle the flame. Better, in fact. You are attempting to recreate the *real* town, or at least part of the core. This would be the center of of Crabwoo University campus, as you’ve guessed. It all centered around the temple.

bb:

TILE Temple, you mean. Peter merely…

Hucka D.:

No, Peter found *another* temple in Pietmond, of very similar design. I don’t think it would be exactly the same design. But he immediately picked up on the resonance. And then he began to wonder if there was a labyrinth at the bottom of it, just like the Crabwoo temple had.

bb:

So Crabwoo’s labyrinth is the original one.

Hucka D.:

Yes. It was present when Peter went to college there, and then long before that.

bb:

Maybe Peter just installed the labyrinth inside Pietmond’s TILE Temple.

Hucka D.:

A possibility.

bb:

I’m still not sure that Pietmond’s labyrinth isn’t the original one.

Hucka D.:

Crabwoo’s influence was yd and far, baker b. (pause) You are kind of at the center of it all. At last.

bb:

The template for Chilbo, the sidewalk design skeleton, came from Crabwoo. The energy.

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb:

And the design of the Korean Channel came from the Blue Feather Sea, the original or uriginal cube.

Hucka D.:

That is right. It was decided that another continent was needed to make corrections in the original one: Maebaleia. Yd Island was the original island of SL, and Maebaleia was the original continent. Nautilus City Island was formed between the two to make a link[at one point].

bb:

So the rest of the Nautilus continent doesn’t count.

Hucka D.:

It’s all permutations of Yd Island, as you learned at Wildmutt.

bb:

What of Corsica?

Hucka D.:

The Corsica continent came later.

bb:

What of the seemingly intimate relationship between Corsica and Heterocera.

Hucka D.:

Yes. That’s what I mean.

bb:

Moving on, so Maebaleia was the original continent.

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb:

And then it formed a double: Jeogeot.

Hucka D.:

The Lindens grew the double, but the influence always came from the eastern hemisphere, beyond the rift.

bb:

Chilbo was the reflection of Crabwoo.

Hucka D.:

They are one. Spinning.

bb:

If the Lindens cooperated with another grid maker, what is the name of this other grid maker?

Hucka D.:

Lemon.


Self.

“The missing 11th is Lulu, under the bridge and under the lawn.”

bb:

Thanks for starting, Hucka D. Is Lulu Marion?

Hucka D.”

Lemon is here.

bb:

Alright.

Lemon:

Hiya. Baker. B.

bb:

Hi. Are you a lab, Lemon?

Lemon:

Rinse splash rinse splash.

Hucka D.:

Tell him what happened, Mr. Lemon. Sir Lemon.

bb:

I died. Lindens came. Greenup Yellow Down. Yd. Yd.

Hucka D.:

First an island, then a continent. You were all ready for the next big jump!

Lemon:

Then the Lindens[ came].

Hucka D.:

Lulu was left under the bridge, under the lawn.

bb:

What did they do?

Hucka D.:

Balance created. No where to jump[ to]. Journey over. Assimilation.

bb:

Are you The Ancients, Lemon?

Lemon:

I brought in The Bill. Peter was with the Bill. Hucka Doobie was with The Bill. She was their mother all 5. Or 6.

bb:

Hucka Doobie the purple-black alien woman.

Lemon:

I brought them in. Big Island to Big Sink through Big Ink. Splat.

Hucka D.:

Sp-u-lat.

bb:

The Bill were not black or African-American, but Men in Black.

Hucka D.:

I was black. My children were black. All but Peter. He danced to Guy Lombardo and all was done. Lemon down.

bb:

Peter obviously went to Crabwoo U. originally through the Rabbit Hole, Hucka D. He went from Jeogeot to Maebaleia. To study with the then Great Blue Feather Douglas. But Blue Feather had already kind of flown the coup.

Lemon:

I created the Rabbit Hole. But we had to put something on the other side. This attracted the Lindens. Greenup became yellow down, then.

bb:

Is Ratzenberger, then, the original original SL sim?

Hucka D.:

Baker b. is also recreating or attempting to recreate the core of Crabwoo U.

Lemon:

Yes I heard. Art gallery with his Oblong pictures. Just like the old days. I brought in The Bill. Greenup.

Hucka D.:

TILE Temple, obviously, since that was the core of the core. Then the chancellor’s home and the art gallery behind it.

Lemon:

Peter holds Satan’s head in his hands as he dies. Peter killed Satan.

Hucka D.:

That could be true. Do The Bills turn their back on him?

Lemon:

They look to Lyra. They look to the future.

bb:

Hate to interrupt, but where does the labyrinth come from?

Lemon:

Future.

Hucka D.:

You build from the bottom up. Labyrinth, then CHRO Gallery, then Pod Room. But where is the 4th?

bb:

That’s what I’m trying to find out.

Hucka D.:

Tinman. Tin Soldier Man. Man. Tin. Tin will lead. Gold. Man.

Lemon:

Self.


Old Wagon Road

Upper (northern) end of the short Linden made Old Wagon Road in the heart of Maebaleia, an unimproved two lane roadway running for only about 300 meter and taking the shape of a rough, half circle.

Baker is interested to find many cubes of various hues at this end; decides it worthy of a snapshot or three.

There are also dinosaurs in the immediate area, along with some giant footprints.

Interesting diamond-shaped kinetic sculpture to the west of the Old Wagon Road employing only the primary colors of red, yellow and blue in its design.

Walking toward the south end. A unique road in terms of length, texture, and isolation.

[in progress]

“I really like it in modern day Crabwoo, Hucka D. I don’t think I’ll give that up. Still there’s the attraction to Sunklands.”

Hucka D.:

Yeah.

bb:

But I still don’t think I can go back.

Hucka D.:

Nah.

bb:

What of Klutzy K.?

Hucka D.:

He’s in trouble. Green. Future. Trouble.

bb:

What can I do?

Hucka D.:

Stay on the edge of the green. Don’t descend into the green. Stay on the edge.

bb:

So the green is a hole.

Hucka D.:

Yes. You have your position of power. You know the hole. Stay on the edge but do not enter. Put a fence around it. Don’t fall in.

bb:

Is it, then, a projection of my own fear? Fear of being known?

Hucka D.:

If so, what is the hole?

bb:

Fear itself. Fear of having to lose Klutzy K.

Hucka D.:

Vile hole. What is VILE?

bb:

VILE is what came before TILE.

Hucka D.:

What it emerged from. Like a lungfish.

bb:

The hole is Mrs. Sea?

Hucka D.:

Hold on, please.

*****

Hucka D.:

There is no complete answer for now.

bb:

Thanks, Hucka D. So speaking of VILE and TILE… the Crabwoo Temple.

Hucka D.:

Great topic. Hellow Casey! So sweet.

bb:

Thanks. She is. Can you see her?

Hucka D.:

Of course!

bb:

TILE, or at least the labyrinth, protects one from the hole, the pit.

Hucka D.:

TILE is the 4th covering the 3rd, yes.

bb:

And the Crabwoo labyrinth is the original labyrinth. I think we determined that[ before].

Hucka D.:

Crabwoo is the original town, period. There was no real town on Yd Island, although Meddletown is a, er… (pause)

bb:

Yes? Meddletown is a reflection?

Hucka D.:

Meddledown. Dark Side of the Moon up, Meddle down.

Lemon:

I am called.

Hucka D.:

Thank you Lemon for showing up again tonight.

Lemon:

You are purely welcome Hucka D. The Bee. Are you well tonight as well?

Hucka D.:

I am so well I’m swell. So so swell.

Lemon:

Wonderbar. Howdy baker Bloch.

Hucka D.:

That’s not baker Bloch, it’s baker b. Not the avatar but the user.

Lemon:

How about you[ Hucka D.]?

Hucka D.:

I am both in one. baker b. is split between Baker Bloch and Baker Blinker.

bb:

I never really understood how all that worked.

Lemon:

I am one as well. Lemony goodness. Sweet n’ sour together. TILE/VILE.

*****

bb:

Thanks for being patient with me while I f— around with facebook, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

So sour.

bb:

Thanks again.

Hucka D.:

The 4th. Isn’t it always?

bb:

The Shadow.

Hucka D.:

Protected wood. Protected grove.

bb:

Pudding Hole has become a very interesting waste area. Green itself.

Hucka D.:

Itself green. Take a picture!

bb:

Alright. Do we have time?

Hucka D.:

Yes!

bb:

Well how clever.

Hucka D.:

Hole. Green. Pudding Hole. Green pudding hole. Not hill but hole.

Lemon:

Peas.

Baker attempting to whistle Dixie in Da Hole.


“Vortextra…

… seems to be a topic to keep talking about tonight.”

Lemon:

I am The Bill. Assimilation.

bb:

Hi Lemon. The hole in the center of Big Sink, which we think might be Vortextra — do you know of it?

Lemon:

Salad Days. Pudding Hole. Not a bad place overall. Sweet smelling. Sweet and sour both.

bb:

Is Vortextra death itself, Lemon?

Lemon (after a long pause):

Here’s Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Hi. Yes, Vortextra can be seen as a death. Not *the* death — I don’t think.

bb:

To the reader there: you’re borrowing from 1 Pink, when Bill — Phil in the movie — tells Rita that he is a God. “Not *The* God — I don’t think.”

Hucka D.:

I’m not sure you had to explain that. But: yes.

bb:

I probably should have called that Carrcass+1.

Hucka D.:

Too late!

bb:

So to another theory: Pietmond/Otaki Gorge had the labyrinth at the bottom, and this sealed up or contained the energy of the sink.

Hucka D.:

It focused the energy. Concentrated it.

bb:

But Big Sink’s energy was too strong. No labyrinth could be affixed to the center. So you just have this gaping — energy hole.

Hucka D.:

When Second Sink goes you’ll just have the first. You’ll be facing death straight in the center. The exit hole.

bb:

I don’t think Second Sink will ever just “go away.”

Hucka D.:

True[ enough]. But it will in practical terms. Just go away.

bb:

Death of work work.

Hucka D.:

Yeah. So how do the 2 related: Second and First/Big?

bb:

First is more important. Big Sink.

Hucka D.:

Correct. Or more central, like a planet and its moon. A big moon but still a moon.

bb:

The Moon being Second Sink.

Hucka D.:

Right.

bb:

What of Carrcass-5.

Hucka D.:

Energy is lower for the creation of carrcasses now. You don’t have group energy to draw upon.

bb:

What is a tile — in level 4?

Hucka D.:

It is like a string. Weaving.

bb:

I think it has something to do with Tinman + Tin Soldier Man. Flexi-tile?

Hucka D.:

Speak of Crabwoo, please.

bb:

Alright, more theories. First off, I found a maze called the Russian Matrix on the opposite side of the Blue Feather Sea, or what the Lindens incorrectly call the Little Sea.

Hucka D.:

You knew you were back in the U.S.S.R., then.


Scry.

“Lakeview — gone in 2 weeks. It will just be the wife and me then, Hucka.”

Hucka D.:

Go ahead. Do it.

bb:

Everything around TILE[, then].

Hucka D.:

You’ve given the visiting artist gallery ownership a shot. You did your finest. Good work!

bb:

Thanks. Everything must end. Everything must move on.

Hucka D.:

You have your prime property now. Crabwoo. Blue Feather Douglas. Moon Temple — that’s where he lived, what he built.

bb:

Fascinating. Sacrifice to The Moon. What of the Russian Matrix?

Hucka D.:

Directly related to The Matrix[ movie]. Red pill, blue pill. Waking up in the sewer. Or back safe on the beach. Your choice.

bb:

I think the sewer is the trap.

Hucka D.:

Could very well be. It’s also Rubi and the Blue Feather itself. Like the paradox of Rubisea being 12-13 times narrower than the Blue Feather, yet Blue Drake being the bird-source of the feather in the first place. Blue Drake is the continent’s axis point. Pivot. Blue Feather[ Sea] is merely an outgrowth of this seed, like All Notes come from the One Note of C. Sea, like water and C like note here.

bb:

And Rubisea is also like The Moon. Is this where Gypsy Purse *originally* came from? And perhaps her Moon itself?

Hucka D. (not answering directly):

And you must think of the Satori Flats, accompanyied by Foxboro, another art colony. Have you moved back yet?

bb:

Not yet Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

You must crack the mystery of Maebaleia. And at the same time you can resolve your past in Jeogeot. Pietmond and prior. Noru.

bb:

Crabwoo is the new center.

Hucka D.:

Crabwoo is the last center.

bb:

What of the new Carrcass-5? I have a starting point.

Hucka D.:

You are at 10 which is actually 11 beyond 10. Lulu under the bridge, under the lawn.

bb:

We better end. Thank you.

Hucka D.:

A word on Maebaleia. Use scrying techniques this time.

bb:

Blue Feather patterns?

Hucka D.:

Just keep that in mind. Thank *you*.

==========

Well, I won’t bother to bring Hucka D. back, but I did want to mention at least two courses I know were taught at Crabwoo University: The Curse Course, and a course on Sinkology. I think the former will center around the Blue Feather curse itself, which involves, more pointilistically, Crabwoo and Chilbo, but, expanding out, also the two involved continents of Maebaleia and Jeogeot. Chilbo takes energy from Crabwoo to itself exist and grow. When Crabwoo discovers Biggie, the big fish of the Blue Feather Sea, they effect the curse. He is put on display. He probably dies as an indirect result. Biggie was found in the Miccall sim, I think, near the Russian Matrix (another bleedthrough of pre-Linden days). The Russian Matrix may have been more of a sculpture at the time (?) The blue pill represents the Blue Feather Sea itself. The red pill is the internal sewer. A choice at the junction must be made: back to the beach of the Blue Feather or inward to the sewer pool. So the Russian Matrix is the Rabbit Hole of the movie as well. The junction is the gateway Neo faced when Morpheus presented him the 2 pills. Is this the gateway to 3rd Life? 1st Life? Maybe the latter, the Real World. Earth. Blue Feather equals Blue Earth — that’s where the name came from. So the land on the other side of the Blue Feather from Crabwoo came to be seen as the Earth itself.

Did Blue Feather Douglas go through this choice? If so he built the Temple of the Moon (or Moon Temple) afterwards. Or before — at any rate he had moved away from Crabwoo a bit and his university responsibilities. He found himself to be a joke, created from a bumbling lawyer in a surreal 1960s sitcom. That’s what he learned in the Russian Matrix. The Temple of The Moon tried to control the Earth by controlling its moon. Blue Feather Douglas also knew that this represented Rubisea as apart from the Blue Feather. Rubisea is, in another, strong way, the bitter red pill itself. Unnasty Branch that ran into Rubisea was formerly red, and made the pool red as well as it was the only, true feeder stream. The red came from the real world location of Ashville, though.

Foxboro announced the end of The Residents of Second Life, and thus, really, Second Life itself. Finger Prince is also involved, whom Blue Feather Douglas met somehow in the waters of the Blue Feather Sea, specifically in the sim of Jael. BFD discovered the finger prints on the sea floor, and knew it was a representation of the Finger Prince.

When Blue Feather Douglas found and took the red pill inside the Russian Matrix, he knew that Rubisea had created the Blue Feather Sea, and that it was the oldest part of SL.


Wilsons.

“Hucka D., I believe the Russian Matrix may *be* the Rabbit Hole of Jeogeot-Maebaleia. The older, pre-Linden version I mean.”

Hucka D.:

That might be correct.

bb:

*Did* Blue Feather Douglas simply just find the Rabbit Hole in that location and then used it to…

Hucka D.:

Symbolic.

bb:

Does it have to do with the same type of pipe affixed to the Edwardston Station Gallery now? Which, after all, is also a symbol of this same Jeogeot-Maebaleia Rabbit Hole.

Hucka D.:

Why are floors 2 and 5 only half filled so that this Rabbit Hole exhibit could be set up?

bb:

Well, Rose Hill and Hidalgo on those two floors[ respectively] are only composed of 10 collages and not the 20 of all other floors [1, 3, 4, 6].

Hucka D.:

It was designed that way.

bb:

This slow internet connection is really starting to bother me, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

And the heat. The cats can tell. They’re becoming more active now.

bb:

Crabwoo active.

Hucka D.:

About the Rabbit Hole: it links Blackmount to Ulyanovysk Oblast. *Use* to, since the Ulyanovysk Oblast side is sealed up now. But not when I first found it.

bb:

But not when *I* first found it.

Hucka D.:

We seemed to have spoken each others words there for a couple of lines.

bb:

Curious. I think we may still be doing it.

Lemon:

I was born there, in Ulyanovysk Oblast. White on White Gallery. Have you been back, Baker Beach?

bb:

Not recently. Thanks for showing up tonight. (pause) Hold on, please…

==========

bb:

Sorry for the delay. I was just popping into SL to check to see if the White on White Gallery was still there in U. Oblast. Apparently it isn’t any longer.

Lemon:

It moved when the hole completely sealed up. It comes with the hole.

bb:

Do *you* come with the hole?

Lemon:

Yes.

Hucka D.:

Remember we went into his world a long, long time ago. 30 years ago?

bb:

Try 3, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Bee years are shorter than human years.

Lemon:

I am the red pill. Deeper into the Rabbit Hole. You do not exit and go back to your safe Jeogeot. You have swallowed the bitter drug.

bb:

Crabwoo is the most important location in SL.

Hucka D.:

It was because of the university. Blue Feather Douglas was a large part of the story but not the whole story.

bb:

Well I know Peter SoSo and also Karoz were there. Peter went there to study with Blue Feather, but he was already becoming absorbed in the study of TILE and not university matters. Karoz probably just followed Peter to Crabwoo.

Hucka D.:

Karoz went to study TILE. Peter went to study Law. There was overlap, though: The Curse Course and the excursion to The Moon of Maebaleia and the meeting of Gypsy Purse. Gypsy had the other Biggie Fish, set loose in the Sea of Tranquility. Maybe even Natha Neil was there. The Eagle has landed Natha Neil.

bb:

He was a shipbuilder, after all. More than just a builder of ships, then.

Hucka D.:

He was building the Barracuda, which is also known as The Arab or Foreign One or 4orrin1.

bb:

I know that it could be as big as a Red Zeppelin, but could also shrink to the size of the Joplin Sphere. Same red textured surface, though.

Hucka D.:

This same sphere existed in the center of Big Sink. Causer of holes, the Vortextra hole in particular?

bb:

I don’t know.

Hucka D.:

Neither do I. What do we know about the Joplin Sphere/Barracuda?

bb:

We know now that it came from Maebaleia, specifically The Moon sim, or better the Sea of — hold on once more (pause)

Well, certainly the island shaped like a Big E in the Sea of *Despair* sim has long since been transformed. There’s still an island there[ see above picture].

Hucka D.:

You should send Karoz back to Gelsomina.

bb:

As I am checking through Baker Bloch now, Hucka D., Gelsomina seems to be a banned sim — no public access possible. Karoz will not be able to return.

Hucka D.:

Same as before. He came back, he was not allowed in. The Wilsons had moved on.

bb:

I think it also has to do with the ugly word jello — gel or gelatin. Like Green Jelly or Jello.

Hucka D.:

You agree to leave the green, the hole, alone for now. Make a pact with Klutzy. That is the answer until [delete name] shows back up.

bb:

Like putting a fence around it, then. Ban lines — fence.

Hucka D.:

You have to.

bb:

Thanks.


Lakeview Art Colony basically dismantled.

Reason? Outside of a handful of friends, no one came, not even the exhibiting artists except myself of course. It never felt quite on center to be there, although I still find it to be a beautiful location. In the 2 weeks remaining on my rent, I’ll experiment with other structures, but most likely will not open another gallery in that location. I thought it might work and I definitely think it was worth a try.

So it looks like it’ll come down to Crabwoo and that’s all, perhaps for the whole summer and even beyond. The energy of Pietmond can’t be carried forth in the way that I had originally planned. Spiritual/mythological concerns must be the priority.

==========

I subsequently played around with one of the larger versions of the Edwardston Station Gallery on the grounds, but I’m almost positive it won’t be sticking around.


Greater Crabwoo crop circles reinvestigated.

First off, before starting this, I’d like to report a new crop circle in Wiltshire, info found here:

http://www.cropcircleconnector.com/2011/eastkennett/eastkennett2011a.html

Not much to see on the surface, but I like the introductory comments enough to quote in full:

This is quite a startling discovery in very young barley. It certainly takes me back to over twenty years ago, from the 1990 days in Wiltshire. This is what we were all very used to seeing back then, very simple designs, with a sense of excitement of what they could become. It’s a great indication, that the earlier designs are very much part of what’s occurring today. The precursor of what was to be an evolutionary road in geometry and complexity. Perhaps the phenomenon is telling us not to ignore the purity of what was occurring at the very beginning.

Seems like wise words indeed, and reminds me quite a lot about how audiovisual synchronicity progressed from the very simple, early days of Dark Side of the Rainbow, although no one save a handful of people know the entire history of, what in my opinion, is a very similar type of development. In fact, there seem to be some direct connections between the Greater Crabwoo crop circle pictured in photos below and a/v synchs. I believe I’ll be going into considerably greater detail about all that soon enough.

There is a quite startling parallel between this set of virtual crop circles and a “real’ set appearing in Chesterton, England in mid-summer, 2009, centered upon the appearance of a working 4 sail windmill very nearby each — in fact, each set can be said to “point” directly to the windmill, or indicate it as part of the overall pattern.

Yet in looking over the Second Life profile of the avatar who owns both the virtual windmill and crop circle, I doubt his created, bucolic tableau is any type of homage to the former; it is merely chance or coincidence as we like to say. But I also believe there is meaning behind this coincidence, moving it into the realm of Jungian synchronicities, or, as Carl Jung himself variously put it, “acausal connecting principles”, “meaningful coincidences” or “acausal parallelisms”. Often these are described as also being part of a web of meaningful coincidence or appearing in various sets or relationships themselves.

Inside a watermill to the northwest of the crop circles.

Baker sits beside a nice stream next to the watermill, with crop circles visible in the background. The object in the middle of the pond between Baker and the crop circles is a beaver dam…

… better seen from this angle.

Baker relaxing in a rocking chair at the watermill, with both the windmill and the crop circles (right) in plain sight.

Baker enters the field containing the circles, which number 3. In addition, several paths lead off from the circles, mainly leading to other circles but with one exception, which is instead a dead end. It is difficult to determine, in this virtual setting, whether these are suppose to act as part of the crop circle design (like connecting lines first seen in 1990) or conversely represent merely manmade paths.

2 of the circles appear to be about the same size in the design, and their interior whirl of bent grains seem identical as well. A considerably smaller circle appears near the northeast corner of the field, more separate from the two although connected to both through the aforementioned paths.

A shot from near the ground across the center of one of the two larger circles, looking toward the windmill. Again, the path seems to point to the windmill, just like the triangle pattern of the Chesterton crop circle points to the counterpart, real life windmill.

I’ll have to dig deeper into the designer of the Greater Crabwoo circle’s profile to see if other, “meaningful coincidences” surface. It would probably also be appropriate to mention here that the Chesteron crop circles have already, er, cropped up in this blog, but in a totally different context. I’ll just leave you with the appropriate link to peruse if you wish, and save additional comments for later until I do some further study.*

http://bakerblinker.wordpress.com/2010/03/11/prep/

Baker enters the windmill itself, but hastens his investigation when he discovers that the place contains black widow spiders. Ick!

Quick picture of windmill gears and then he’s outta there!

All.

“In Crabwoo, the temple is all important and central, Hucka D.”

Hucka D.:

And the labyrinth within. Did you walk[ it] today?

bb:

No, sorry.

Hucka D.:

Once a day every day. It is also a crop circle.

bb:

I think I’ll create a post on how to walk the labyrinth, Hucka D.

Hucka D.L

8 5 6 7 4 1 2 3. All the numbers.

bb:

In Pietmond this same temple was central but there was more “stuff” around.

Hucka D.:

When the Pietmond labyrinth was deleted the energy of Vortextra opened up wide and screaming. Babymouth.

bb:

No labyrinth could seal it.

Hucka D.:

Too big. Big Sink big. And this is where you must go out of yourself and also out of Sunklands. For the Vortex cannot be dealt with.

bb:

What is inside?

Hucka D.:

Red, blue. A man, a small man who is unhappy but who is a very big man. Big Sink big. Acknowledge the hole and you can deal with it. Cover it with green. Fence around. A place to be.

bb:

Only in… sorry once more.

Hucka D.:

Only in Crabwoo can the whole of Sunklands be properly sealed. Because it is where Sunklands came from.

bb:

I can’t leave that temple[, then].

Hucka D.:

No.

bb:

85674123.

Hucka D.:

Yes. All.

*****

bb:

I’m trying to envision the Crabwoo campus, Hucka D. I believe the mall area southeast of the temple would have perhaps been the dorm area, maybe classroom buildings.

Hucka D.:

That area has a controversial history. A large building was there in campus days as well, but it was a later additional, after the temple was constructed. Yes, it was classrooms and dorms both. It was a bit like the Biggie Gallery. Some said the fish cursed Crabwoo because of that particular building. Or through it[ I mean].*

bb:

I would say the Rookwood Cottage came before the temple as well.

Hucka D.:

That is correct. But it was there originally, moved, then put back in its original location to make a main entrance for the almost completed temple.

bb:

The stairs seem strangely out of place.

Hucka D.:

Both sets of stairs once led to the cottage. It was aligned to 135 degrees, then 225, then finally 180 as it became absorbed into the temple. The first set of stairs led to the door of the 135 degree version, the second to the 225, but the first set of stairs remained still. Then in the 180 degree version both sets of stairs, although they remained a part of the landscape, became rather equally useless and useful at once.

bb:

Interesting. And the cottage sits on that hill, perhaps the highest of Crabwoo.

Hucka D.:

Along with the grave.

bb:

Is that one of the Peter’s grave, Hucka D.? Peter the Good perhaps?

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb:

A main difference between the Crabwoo TILE Temple and the Pietmond TILE Temple is that Crabwoo was not built upon a cemetery. Nor is there the equivalent of Peter’s Rock within, like we have with Pietmond.

Hucka D.:

It was a great center of learning. Approached a 1000 students in its day.

bb:

Can i ask about the study of Sinkology now, Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

The 8 major sinks were all known in its day, along with Finsteraahorn and Sink X of Maebaleia. Maebaleia prided itself upon its Lake District and not the sinks, unlike Jeogeot. As you know, there is no equivalent of, especially, Big Sink on Maebaleia. Satori Shallows became interesting to Blue Feather Douglas at one point. He thought about asking the college to be relocated in Foxboro, but this was later found to be untrue. Maybe just a branch college.

bb:

Was Casey in Finsteraahorn?

Hucka D.:

Good! And Bacon in Sink X, the 10th. Those were the 9th and 10th. But they had little relevance to the main flow of Maebaleia spirtual politics. Instead it relates to a different grid altogether. The Gridcosm. But it was not known by that name in those days. Really, it is another virtual reality, like Second Life itself, and has similarities. Each grid begins with a seed square. For Second Life this is DaBoom. For Mike this is also the Mikecosm, a separate “sync” from the Gridcosm, a branch college (smiles).

bb:

Obviously there’s probably no way to recreate whatever village or community lie in the Finsteraahorn Sink in those days, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

The 9th and 10th[ sinks here] work together. Together they are Peter.

bb:

They are the equivalent to Sunklands in the Maebaleia-Jeogeot twirling (!)

Hucka D.:

Exactly. Precisely. What formed fully on Jeogeot was only half baked on Maebaleia, half formed and less even. Instead, the Lake District dominated by Rubisea ruled. Rubisea, in its loneliness, created the Blue Feather Sea, which seems bigger in virtual reality but actually is smaller by a considerable amount.

bb:

Rubisea reminds me of Rydal Water from England’s Lake District, Hucka D., as present in some collages of the 10×10. Like, let’s see, Yale 09, Wheeler 09, Jasper 09, Newton 05, and Newton 06. And there’s even a cave on cliffs above Rubisea, just as is the case with Rydal Water, a Lake District cave seen in Yale 09, Newton 05, and Newton 06.

Hucka D.;

Back to Jeogeot-Maebaleia, it was decided that the dry sinks would be emphasized and deepened in the new continent [Jeogeot]. The shallower Finsteraahorn and Sink X became Sunklands. That’s really how Casey became involved. He is a bridge. Zeppelin Bridge.

bb:

But all that stops at, in my direction, SID’s 1st Oz.

Hucka D.:

Finsteraahorn and Sink X together must form Sunklands. That is the other side[ of one thing].

bb:

Hold on, Hucka D. I’m going to take a picture through Baker Bloch of the two continents, with Jeogeot turned 180 degrees.

bb:

It’s obvious that the Blue Feather Sea and Jeogeot’s Korean Channel are two separate events in this animation, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

The Korean Channel had to be designed on Maebaleia, in Crabwoo to be specific, in order for the double to form properly. Or better, erase the memory of Maebaleia, the older of the two. All Letters became Single Letters. TILE became tiles. Birth of the alphabet. Screaming.

==========

* Hucka D. later claimed that the dorms/classrooms formed one giant cube like shape, and, yes, that Biggie was displayed in a tank on its side, just like the “E” of the Biggie Gallery in Aotearoa. Below it existed a forest and perhaps garden space.


Bowl.

Name: Beggar’s Bowl? Super Bowl? Baker’s Dozen? Oliver?

http://realtravels.blogspot.com/2011/04/beggars-bowl.html

http://realtravels.blogspot.com/2011/04/xyz-math-and-art.html

Hucka D.:

Well, it was the Super Bowl for Crabwoo (!) But it was originally Beggars Bowl, changed to Baker’s Dozen since it was the 13th identified mainland sink. The Sinkology course students use to take field trips to the bowl. Probably still do. “This is where the sink stops”, they were told or possibly are still told. The origin, then, of the expression, the sink stops here.

bb:

I thought that was buck. Anyway, so Oliver was placed in the bowl that was filled, artificially, with water, perhaps even artificially terraformed to be unusually deep.

Hucka D.:

It was semi-deep already[, though].

bb:

Another insight I had is that Oliver had complete memory of his mother, Biggie.

Hucka D.:

Correct enough. Yes, it was different from us humans and the stories passed down from mother to child. This was more than stories. It was actual blood. Memory in the blood. They knew how to [delete word] it.

bb:

And then I have that Chester was also in the bowl with Oliver. Otherwise I suppose it wouldn’t be “Super”. And also that Green Bay is an actual bay of not Maebaleia but Jeogeot, but more commonly called the Sea of Green there, or Green Sea. It’s the sea Chilbo had designs on during its most expansive period a year or 2 back. Chilbo wanted to be a port.

Hucka D.:

Like Crabwoo, then.

bb:

Hold on…

*****

bb:

Was Chester a jellyfish or an octopus or a plant or something else, Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

Jellyfish. Maybe. Anyway, Chester didn’t come from around here. Chester knew of other sinks. Sink Y and Golden Sink, the 12th. He may have been from Foxboro, even.

bb:

And I assume that Oliver and Chester could communicate with each other.

Hucka D.:

Oliver and Chester were in perfect communion. It was a Super Bowl after all.

bb:

So Oliver knew everything the mother knew, and Chester knew everything Oliver knew?

Hucka D.:
