More Underwater Ruins November 15, 2008

While exploring the general region of the new-ish Bay City area, ran across more underwater ruins, quite similar to the sets one can find around the new Nautilus Island. Thought I’d drop some photos of the finds in this post here. I may have more to comment about this later, but basically I think the Lindens just wanted to add some pizzazz to the watery areas of Bay City, as they did with the Nautilus Island environs. We’ll see what develops, though. The ruins in the Bay City region seem to be confined to one sim so far: Chikepe. There is also some underwater vegetation to be found in the sim called Manyiminya directly to the west of Chikepe.

Go see for yourself!

“It seems like The Jug is Ozmo in fetal form, Hucka D., a green oval of some 4 dimensional nature, attracting life to itself but not quite alive itself in the sense that it has no permanent entrapped soul yet.”

Hucka D.:

Not been born yet.

bb:

Ozma is lonely?

Hucka D.:

An agreement between the two is being reached. This is a coming full circle.

bb:

What about the Wheeler series?

Hucka D.:

Examine each of the part-souls attempting to inhabit the body of Ozmo. But also always remember that Ozmo is more than Ozmo. Always.

bb:

I know this is difficult to talk about Hucka D. We speak abstractly of something the reader knows really nothing about.

Hucka D.:

You can look on a map and find The Jug. You can visit it [in West Virginia]. Real enough.

bb:

But once you go inside you have, presently, an infinite surface. Klein bottle. And I think the main question is: can Ozmo [which appears to be the same as The Jug in both baker b. and Hucka D.’s eyes] be ensouled? And how does this or did this effect SID’s 1st Oz in the first place? Because all of this is really happening at once. We agree on that Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Sure. Time is porous.

*****

“You are on the edge of ensoulment.”

*****

“The Stream.”

*****

“Hucka D., it’s usually a symmetrical affair.”

Hucka D.:

Chaos control. Bartlet hates chaos.

bb:

Don’t you mean Barr- oh yeah, Bartlet.

*****

“What can I say? Ozma likes Ozmo. She sees it as a sort of parallel world for Oz. One that couldn’t take place in Baum’s mind, or in someone’s mind like Gardner’s. So she commissioned the ensoulment. Sealed in ink.”

bb:

It is the other half of the United States. 25th to 26th. (pause) But what about the S of S-Bum, then. ESBUM? That’s 26 as well, matching SID’s 1st Oz. Tiles, that is.

Hucka D.:

The US is the parallel to Oz, not another Oz.

bb:

But it’s *Oz*mo.

Hucka D.:

Is it, though?

*****

“Are tiles like states, then?”

Hucka D.:

Missouri, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, West Virginia, Ohio…

bb:

But its sort of kind of Arkansas and Missouri. In the center. Pivotal. Back and forths there. One blows and then the other. What kind of battle is this?

Hucka D.:

Between you and your block. It starts all the way back in Maine. [delete name]. He controls. He blocks. You don’t like it.

bb:

No. Who gave him the right to come in here and take over so much? Never mind, I know the answer.

Hucka D.:

You did.

bb:

But he’s trying to make it all come full circle.

Hucka D.:

He’s trying to work with you, baker b., on this.

bb:

Ok, Hucka D., I’ll focus on the center. The center of SID’s 1st Oz. Hare.

Hucka D.:

Story. Yes.
