  1. That is the root, and here is the historical reality. Humans have always borrowed from other cultures and for differing reasons. Like gathering relics of war among your enemies whom you feared, for the pride and esteem among your compatriots -- this goes back to ancient times, and too, human cultures will tend to learn and mimic from other cultures for their differing uses of medicines, diets, habits and clothing, and even spiritual beliefs and methods of upliftment. This is the reality, and is not in itself a negative. Normal people have always loved borrowing from other cultures out
  2. THIS! Thank you very much for that candor, it makes me feel better and imbues me with renewed patience. We are "getting it on," so yeah, keep up the push. I came here just now out of concerns at the continuing issues in performance, but you just explained it all. ~Cheers!
  3. THIS, is such a GREAT point, and your son would benefit in such a place as Second Life, simply because of the use of writing. We are all different and many of us are quite verbally fluent, yet when it comes to the written word we can stumble, and my theory is that our brains move so fast, that writing, being a slower medium, acts as a sort of moving roadblock -- our fingers can't keep up with the firing synapses of our cortex. So, like... our great ideas get mangled by now smashing into one another in their fast occurring sequence, while waiting for the labors of trying to capture them
  4. SECRETS TIME: Using the HUD you can get for Hugs and Kisses, stand casually in front of your mate, bump up against him, but don't struggle at being EXACTLY in front (I'll show you why), and then execute the Hug animation via the HUD, and when your partner accepts the permission popup (or when you accept one) then... AND NOW FOR THE SECRET....!! >> Go into Mouselook (press the "m" key) and here you can turn your body smoothly and easily and in tiny increments during this animation and get your smacker right onto his!. Then come out of mouselook (scroll back your mouse scroll wheel)
  5. Yeah. I think I've come to see it that way too, and in a broader sense to answer my own "general" question. It is that, when we log onto a "game" platform or some chat platforms, that just because there is a convenient little interface there for us to control the volumes, even turning them "off" (which may in fact not be true), during our experiences on the platform, doesn't mean those little UI's are functioning as absolute firewalls. I get that. So, it makes sense that clever other people can find work arounds and still broadcast to your speakers or headset (around those interfaces,
  6. ...an to elaborate, is was inside SL (not outside on the player side), since the player realizing she couldn't turn it off in the viewer (Firestorm latest vers.) suspected foul play and closed the viewer, logging out, and the sound stopped as she exited. The next day in the same region she heard the voice clip again and asked a friend with her if she heard but she didn't. She is rather calm about this, but concerned. It happened tonight that in a public sandbox, a music clip came loud over the region music and she franticlly pulled all sliders to the left and unchecked boxes and the pulled
  7. Is it possible to receive sounds (music or voice) in your headset (or speakers) which are not coming from any of the sound sliders on your settings as you stand in a region where suddenly it comes in OVER the region music if you have it on, and you turn that music OFF, turn the voice off, media off.. all sliders moved hard to the left, including Master volume itself, and yet, the sound plays on all by itself....and after some small interim will repeat regardless all of your settings of everything off... and maybe you tp out to another region and it follows you and finishes it's short clip, suc
  8. Funny how consistently wrong you are. Know it or not, I've been helping you. You appear to be someone who just labels what they don't understand. It's not going to serve you well going forward.
  9. Oddly, you didn't attempt to expand on my concepts, but rather to roll your eyes, label them, and then express frustration. That's when anyone can see you are not serious about discussion. You seem to want to pretend. But that's ok. I accept you. I support you in your growth. But don't think you fool anyone.
  10. Yes, and frankly, this thread portended its own "flame war" even predicting what on pages it should begin. Then, it is suggested further on, with, "/me takes a long toke, passes it to someone else in the dorm room and settles down into the role of devil's advocate." So, it's all fine, no real bullying going on here. And yes, ad hominem reared it's face at, "...I roll my eyes at your superiority gig," from the OP. Ok. I'm game to play. Hope it wasn't too distracting. And btw, the purpose of the "comment search" suggestions was to buttress the fact that originality of expressio
  11. Wow. Thank you for this thread! I love African music -- from the Cape to the Nile -- that is our common cradle. Listening to that Blood Diamond piece is moving as such music is; it gives you the sense of a long forgotten pathway receding far away behind it. I'll offer up here my latest that I listen to while doing work. Like yours, the instruments become definitive as it progresses.
  12. It's plain my distinction evades you. Maybe your brain will learn to distinguish in more detail later on. On second thought... meh, probably not.
  13. It's not only absolutely possible, it is the definition of human evolution. Look, let me explain. Since the fullness of reality is beyond our limited senses, there are simply things we can never know about this sea of existence in which we live — then it’s axiomatic that we are truth-starved beings in a grand unknowable universe. Just like the ants beneath our feet, hugely truth-starved beings just so, are we. Let junior gato run a quote search on those words. Hah. Being truth-starved, we seek. Seeking we can find small trails. That's pretty cool, if you can find them.
  14. Yeah, I recognize that technique. Some who lack original thought like to quote others (in this case, Havel) as a stand-in for what they don't have. But it's okay. I'm accustomed to that. It fades with the substance of any other segment of echo. But to quote you directly, "False dichotomies are rife tonight in the GD subforum! (Probably elsewhere too)." I'm sorry that I assumed you comprehended the fact that the state of being is more comprehensive than (and inclusive of) the mere state of doing. You thought it was a comment of dichotomy. tsk tsk.
  15. Yeah, I hear you. You've summed up the world, haven't you. Think of humanity as a population of chickens in a barnyard... whole lot of cluckin' going on.
