The Arab Found! (And Much More!) October 30, 2008

In a rather incredible aboutface, decided to keep the Rubi property after integrating a photography gallery into the rebuilt Temple of TILE. The name of the gallery (logically enough): The Gallery at The Temple of TILE. Already listed in the SL art gallery list as such (live database).

*Now* my art (basically collages) and Edna’s art (essentially photographs) are in separate galleries… separate yet still pretty close, with only a sub-sim sized forest separating the two. Draw your view distance out to 256 meters and you can see one from the other.

*****

Let’s just talk with Hucka D. on this subject, if he’s once again willing.

Hucka D.:

Just call.

bb:

Hello Hucka D. and happy Halloween.

Hucka D.:

Same to you sir.

bb:

You sound happier than the other night for certain.

Hucka D.:

I had to help press you into rebuilding the temple. The temple is important. Very much so. You did good. Edna is pleased as well.

bb:

Do you want to talk about any of the attached subjects? Obviously, I think the temple floating above the giant cross on the ground is of some significance.

Hucka D.:

Yes, The Arab formed the cross. Very interesting indeed. What do you think it means?

bb:

I think it stands for the cross of Christianity and all the attached, um, baggage. The temple rises above all that because it is not really a religion, although it has that aspect. It is, instead, a game/philosophy/religion, with philosophy having to have over a 50 percent cut in the deal at any one time.

Hucka D.:

What is the power source, then? The clear blue orb that emits so many of those particles in an hour’s time?

bb:

It must be attached to the mystery of The Arab in general. I merely centered the hole in the ship to contain this orb, and “accidentally” formed the giant cross on the land. That would be about 60 meters by 40 meters or so, I believe. So the power source seems directly tied into the cross motif.

Hucka D.:

It is the freeing of crystallized energy within Christianity itself. And this energy continually zooms toward the temple above. The ship also emits smoke particles from its smokestack on top of that. But the orb is the key.

bb:

I believe I’ve theorized it may be a representation of Earth, or perhaps the Mythos planet.

Hucka D.:

The two are tied, though.

bb:

It’s also squaring the circle again, I suppose, since the sphere was fitted into a square hole in the ship. Dark and light as well. Baby blue. See through. I only mention that because the word “Arnold” is now on the *front* of the Temple of TILE*

Hucka D. (prompting): Also…?

bb:

Um, The Wall. The song with the phrase “baby blue” in it. And The Arab may have been built at The Great Wall in Ziczac. Ziczac-zoe. Could it have sort of teleported down through The Great Wall to Rubi?

Hucka D.:

Oblio. Earth.

bb:

The Point of The Wall. Oblio is a symbol of Earth. Baby blue. The first song of the synch. Then we have, next up in the synch, the song “Goodbye Blue Sky”, as Oblio leaves the home nest to eventually reach the Pointless Forest.

Hucka D.:

He leaves The Arab. (pause) Whatever, the orb is Oblio. Round on the ends. High in the middle. Point.

bb:

Hucka D., I have a feeling we are entering some totally different space.

Hucka D.:

That is true enough. I’m so so glad you rebuilt the Temple. It will take you far.

bb:

I’m going to take a look at that ship again. I may get back to you tonight.

Hucka D.:

Ok.

*****

*****

bb:

Hucka D., I’m also thinking that this reminds me of the movie Sphere and the connected synchronicity MessiaenSphere. There was a ship in that movie that also carried an “alien” orb, the only thing alien about it, as it turned out. Much to the disappointment of the alien exploring crew sent down there to investigate. They thought the whole ship was of alien origin when it was in fact an American ship, but from the future. Encountered a black hole, perhaps caused by that sphere in the first place. Displaced ship again.

Hucka D.:

Harry went inside. Then Jerry showed up. Jules Verne again. Monster.

bb:

Taking it a step beyond the twin Messiaen Trek, if intellectually and not particularly aesthetically.

Hucka D.:

The Sphere talked back. It wanted to communicate. but instead it was turned into a *Monster*.

bb:

Hucka D., can we talk to the sphere on The Arab?

Hucka D.:

Not quite yet. SF is available, though.

bb:

Alright, that’ll do. SF?

SF:

Yes.

bb:

You mentioned Mythos and The Arab the other night in our chatting then. Can you tell me more now that The Arab has manifested on the Rubi land and formed a giant cross with the subway there?

SF:

Squaring of the circle again. I am at all corners. Control.

bb:

Are you the same as The Arab, then?

Hucka D.:

SF does not wish to talk further tonight, but another night he will.

bb:

Can you then answer more questions about The Arab tonight, Hucka D.? Or the temple, perhaps?

Hucka D.:

Power source. Energy, but needs to be controlled. *Cornered*.

bb:

This is where 9 becomes 1 instead of 8, isn’t it?

Hucka D.:

Yes. Point. Wall. *SID*.

bb:

Thank you.

  1. […] already covered The Arab’s strangest and most apparent quality in this earlier post, so I’ll just finish this particular post off with some snapshots of Baker Bloch on the deck […]

  2. […] Then a picture of the gallery exterior from the front, showing the relationship of the new subway sub-level to the stuff higher up. I think it works great; I especially like how the direction of the Arab crosses the main tunnel of the subway now, making a cross such as existed between the same two elements in the old Rubi gallery/temple complex.
