Third Life, I think, is a reference to a joke in the US series of The Office: An American Workplace. One of the characters (Dwight Shrute, a paper salesman and assistant to the regional manager) gets a Second Life account to avoid doing his work and begins participating in-world.

Before long, Dwight secures himself a regional manager's assistant position at a virtual, Second Life paper mill and his avatar (modelled in his likeness) spends most of its time in-world playing on a virtual computer inside Second Life - avoiding doingvirtual work in a virtual paper mill by playing Third Life.

And so the cycle continues. :P

Here's a link to an extract from the episode:

I've also sometimes joked that Project Sansar (the follow-up to Second Life, created by the same folks) is Third Life.
