    So I just found out about Sansar

    You walk around in those things...I'm impressed! I do stand now, and conquer musical elements attacking me, but if I walked or jumped around I fear crashing into RL furniture... I had the most fun of times this past holiday season, watching the astonishment & hearing the squeals of VR-virgin users when I introduced them to VR.

    Or maybe it appeals to a poorer user base...one that can afford the one-off 350 bucks for a headset, but can't afford 300 usd every month to own a decent sized piece land in SL... * because land is free in Sansar…...HUGE amounts of land..
  5. Well don't throw out your tendency toward psychological analysis! It evoked some poetry for me regarding paradise/nirvana/heaven (how one can evoke past or future experiences to explain current realities on both a personal and collective level). Regarding our early days in SL, I agree, it is probably impossible or at the least very difficult to recapture the 'magic' of the earliest days. But I do feel it again every time I really let myself go and lose myself in a creative project -- that childlike enthusiasm, the wonder, returns and SL is beautiful again

    I don't like fakeness, but I think what you're describing here could be defined as 'politeness', almost like saying 'have a nice day' to strangers when you part from them. Since many holidays are accepted by the majority it seems many are trying to be polite and 'go with the flow' by acknowledging them in public. I don't mind this as long as they aren't forcing it on me. In this day and age of too much rudeness and negativity I think it best to take something offered in kindness whenever you can! I do remember, however, with my soon-to-be husband, in our teen-age 'wisdom', declaring that holidays were stupid & fake and we vowed not to follow them. Of course, we had a better way to run the world in so many areas...lol.

    I agree, life is competitive...but this fact does not have to mean one can't respect their competitor (or even love them). Competition helps us learn and develop our skills -- in many areas we can't see the level we're at unless we can compare our skills to others. I don't want to destroy my competitor, come in for 'the kill' at the end if my argument or skill is 'best', or revel at the fact I came out on top. I'd be more inclined to thank the competitor for helping me develop my skills at the end of a contest. I've actually been helped by competitors in SL, for example, and I've helped others who were my competition. I've also encountered cut-throat creeps who wanted nothing but to tear me down and win over me while I was left in the dust as they went on their 'victorious' way. Choose your friends wisely.

    So you can't love people you're also competitive with? If you can't, why can't you or what would prevent it?

  12. Another possible reason why the internet appears more negative... we encounter others who differ from us to a greater degree online than in RL. Just by flicking on a switch and checking the news or a few forums we can instantly encounter hundreds of people who differ from ourselves. Given the reactions evident at the end of some articles or on some forums I can only imagine this must be too much to bear for some, and require major adjustments. Some of these comments at the end of various articles sound like they're given by someone who just escaped from a mental hospital as they ingested several hits of LSD while climbing out the window. But in RL, aside from the uncle with his MAGA hat that graces us at holidays, we tend to hang around people like us, or at the very least seldom SEEM to encounter someone so different as we make our trips through the grocery store or gym on the corner -- we simply aren't forced to be aware, for the most part, of how different we all are from each other at the core (not talking about physical or socioeconomic differences). The deeper differences are shoved in our face on the internet just by casual surfing.

    invention conception Haha, Ivanova -- "stale kale". I created the puzzle "expired produce" but could not come up with an answer myself! I should have thought of this, as it's usually the state of the kale in my fridge I keep buying and not eating..lol. amazing flight >>>>

  16. People's ability to self govern (and be empathetic) is variable. Those who do it best are civil everywhere. Those who do it worst are likely to become more uncivil as societal constraints are lifted. Anonymity removes a lot of constraints. Written words cause a focusing effect, if you're paying attention - an intensification of energy. Unfortunately, we are wired to be aware of what's wrong in our environment more than what's right -- as a protection. Hence, the internet becomes more negative than other social habitats outside of the internet. Not saying anonymity cannot be a part of the above and "remove some constraints" as you say -- I'm sure it factors in to a degree, or for some people -- but I don't think it's the root cause. * And I'm referring to average people in this theory, and not to those with major mental illnesses or personality disorders.
  17. The anonymity is what allows you to evade disapproval and unwanted consequences. Years ago some newspapers, hoping to stem the massive abuse in their comments sections, restricted access to paid subscribers, and used their RL identities. Things went civil very quickly. Well, then what explanation or cause do we give to those who are anonymous yet exhibit civil and generally positive behavior on the internet?
  18. I'd say that's fear of both disapproval and unwanted consequences at work. Anonymity may play a part, but it's not the root cause of this trolling problem or the negativity we see on the net in general. * Just because a factor occurs in many instances does not mean it's the cause, nor does it mean it would occur in other instances.
  19. While I agree with your assessment here regarding more accurate representation of withholdings, I'm discovering other ways these new tax laws are likely sticking it to the poor and middle class. There are new rules about hobby income and business classifications (related to what can be classified as an itemized deduction) that I've discovered so far, and no doubt many more. I guess I'll find out for sure if I actually do my taxes today and quit blabbing on the forum.
  20. lol yes, and here's one solution to focusing on the positive:

    Dappy happy. lol I like that..but I tend to like short and to the point.. I tried to be complicated this time, and worked backwards. I came up with the solution and THEN posited the puzzle, so I was thinking: dumb emotion >>> moronic histrionic A new challenge: fast tendency >>>>>
  22. Poeple r dum! Maybe we're not dumb...maybe we're just tryin to 'fix things'. I remember some Psychological studies from some time back (not willing to try and find them again but maybe somebody can) that showed humans in general are simply more attuned to negative stimuli. This is a protective mechanism so that we can learn and fix what is wrong -- to grow then into something better or more adaptive to the environment (evolution). Have you ever noticed on a forum that someone could post a long speech of the most positive, wonderful sentiments but somebody will come along and only comment on the one or two negative ones (or the ones they don't like or agree with). Human nature But there IS hope -- one can train themselves to pay more attention to the positive and ignore the negative. * I don't know much about current theories on evolution -- some would probably place the focus is on 'what works' , and so the focus would be to pay attention to the positive. But, can you know what's right if you don't see what's not working? Interesting question....and maybe more apropos for complex human consciousness than early evolution..

    yes, I was actually doing a little experiment here, albeit semi-subconsciously. I wondered how people would interpret 'simple' (can be interpreted in a negative AND a positive way). I like your interpretation. Later I came up with: simple poem >>> honest monist and real reveal
