Baker Blinker:

We thought you were gone Hucka D.! Glad you’re still with us. You are still with us?

Hucka D.:

Yes.

Baker Blinker:

Well, where’ve you been this past 36 hours?

Hucka D.:

Can’t I have a life in the real world?

Baker Blinker:

Absolutely not. Just kidd’n. But we were worried after the last interview. You seem frustrated.

Hucka D.:

Where’s Baker Bloch?

Baker Blinker:

Well, he can’t be here when I’m here usually, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Then how am I here?

Baker Blinker:

Well, we agreed, if you remember, to treat our discussions a little differently. To create the Microsoft Works document first and then do a cut and paste number into a Podcast post, but pretend like the discussion is done in-world. Baker Bloch and I have no such agreement.

Hucka D.:

Why not?

Baker Blinker:

Well, let’s deal with that in the right time.

Hucka D.:

Seriously, why can’t Baker Bloch be here? It seems I never see him. Where is he now?

Baker Blinker:

He’s… he’s busy underwater somewhere Hucka D. I’m curious: how old would you say you are Hucka?

Hucka D.:

I’m 48 going on 49, just like you and just like Baker Bloch.

Baker Blinker:

Getting down to business, then — unlike Baker Bloch and I can do here! — did you go through the portal again? Did you go to Hidalgo?

Hucka D.:

Yes, the portal goes to RL.

Baker Blinker
(after a pause):

What’s there??

Hucka D.:

A rock.

Baker Blinker:

A rock. Is that all?

Hucka D.:

Well, a glyph. Would you like to see it?

Baker Blinker:

Certainly!

(Hucka D. attaches a small carton of colored chalk to his avatar and begins to draw on the deck they are standing on, just as in the previous part of the interview. Here’s what Hucka D. draws):

J K L M N
A B C D E
S T U V W
P Q R S T
————-
R Q P O N

Baker Blinker:

Wow, that’s very pretty Hucka. So this was on your rock. How big was the rock? Where was it in RL?

Hucka D.
(detaching chalk carton):

At a place called New Hope. It is the beginning of the New.

Baker Blinker:

Like a new life in Real Life?

Hucka D.:

Er, yeah. That too.

Baker Blinker:

What do these letters and patterns indicate to you?

Hucka D.:

I wish to talk about Baker Bloch now, if you don’t mind.

Baker Blinker:

Ok, that’s fine.

Hucka D.:

He’s found the limit to his underwater explorations. He is running out of time.

Baker Blinker:

Is he getting bored?

Hucka D.:

He has found the limit.

Baker Blinker:

The limit of the Ancient’s kingdom or whatever they called it?

Hucka D.:

Precisely.

Baker Blinker:

What does that mean, then?

Hucka D.:

He cannot go forward without going backwards the same length of time and space.

Baker Blinker:

There must be more areas for him to explore.

Hucka D.:

Not without the resonance. Baker Bloch has been here before. He knows what he is doing and where he needs to go. He is walking the footsteps of old.

Baker Blinker:

Hucka D., you’ve indicated to me that something or someone called “The Body” will show up sometime soon.

Hucka D.:

Soon, yeah.

Baker Blinker:

Is The Body another Ancient One, like Mr. Low?

Hucka D.:

The Body is just that. The Body.

Baker Blinker:

You’ve indicated to me that it is a female form.

Hucka D.:

Yes, as a balance.

Baker Blinker:

Where will this Body be found?

Hucka D.:

Where the Ancients are still strong. Underneath the waters, obviously. But also above them now. It can surface. It can walk among us.

Baker Blinker:

What did you mean by the statement that Baker Bloch is the last pea in the pod?

Hucka D.:

Baker Bloch and The Ancients walk as one now.

Baker Blinker:

What do the other peas represent?

Hucka D.:

Do you remember anything else about those pairs we talked about before?

Baker Blinker:

I did do some thinking about that. Looked back over my — our web log here. I think the post Brainstorm has something to do with this. I think from the beginning Second Life was designed to be a primary continent, a second, reactive continent, and then, perpendicular to all this, something else was designed based not on the square, like a sim square, but the triangle. But from the beginning it was known that the triangle design would not be stable and would function differently.

Hucka D.:

Good. What are the triangle based land masses?

Baker Blinker:

Well, I don’t think they exist in Second Life per se. I think they exist in another time, another space. They are outside the limits of Second Life but just barely. Hovering on the edge. But they are also one and the same, like the primary and secondary or reactive continent of Second Life are actually treated now as one continent for the most part. But these two masses are even closer. There’s an overlap.

Hucka D.:

They are the high and the low.

Baker Blinker:

Right, like the bushes I saw in [delete name] sim. My assumption is that they are Baker’s Island in unison, which would cover 32 Second Life sims if translated to this virtual reality.

Hucka D.:

This is the Ancient Ones, then.

Baker Blinker:

The high and the low? Mr. Low?

Hucka D.:

Portal.

Baker Blinker:

Um, ok. Like the stargate? The stargate on Isle of Baker – Not?

Hucka D.:

I decided to return to this world and not enter RL to give you additional information. I have brought you the glyph. I am telling you about the Ancients and Baker Bloch’s limitations. Baker Bloch has found the lemon.

Baker Blinker:

I’m confused. Is the lemon the last pea in the pod somehow?

Hucka D.:

Whatever happens next happens through the lemon.

END.
