After inserting a couple pictures from Legoland, UK into the House of Truth just last week (Thursday?), I saw Legoland, Denmark advertised on a tv show we watched during the weekend at the in-laws’ house in Mountain City. I took it for another sign, another breadcrumb. I was on the right track. As you can see from the above link, there’s only 4 Legolands world-wide, with the other 2 in Germany and the United States.

I also think this is tied into the very, very early machinima of SL supposedly created in August 2001, or about the time that Hucka D. claims Chilbolton, UK transformed into its own type of Legoland. (again, pictures are within the House of Truth). I wanted to talk to him tonight, perhaps, more about this, if he’s game. Maybe he won’t be, but let’s give it a try.

First, some snapshots of the newly erected b_hivia (as of last week as well). Hucka D. has already stated that this new version of the old, classic build will be subtitled the Beehive of Truth, and will apparently act as a direct continuation of the story unfolded in the House of Truth.

Pictures of this b_hivia so far:

The only other objects in the new b_hivia right now besides the structural walls themselves are 4 Fuchsia Diamond rings, and also two plywood prim cubes. The whole adds up to 65 prims, which represents a ceiling for the number of prims he’s allowed. Not very much, but Hucka D. insists that it’s enough.

Again just to review a bit, Hucka D. now states that this new b_hivia, although an illegal build, has been erected on land that traditionally belongs in his SL family. Or maybe SL is not the way to put it… Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

Yes. Hello.

bb:

Glad you could make it tonight.

Hucka D.:

I show up when I can (smiles). You have a lot of work to do in the short run ahead. You’ve already done a lot. I assume you’ll catch up with the text for these post tomorrow or the day after. Then we need to explore further — you’re not through at all. Good that Karoz keeps going back to Chilbo. Good that you’re attempting to read the various Chilbo related blogs now. Good that you met Zeek… nice fellow… already luvs Chilbo.*** But I know you want to talk more about the Beehive of Truth tonight. Lego tie ins. Well… (pause)

bb:

Thank you for that, Hucka D. I assume the BoT will contain a maximum of 30 pictures, to continue the 20 or so in the House of Truth. Will there be a direct link from one to the other?

Hucka D.:

Yes, but not right now. After the 30 are finished.

bb:

What is the relationship of BoT to the “Just Call Me Ernie Banks” gallery? I know this has something to do with Kelley the Bee Man. Are you still claiming that Kelley is your father?

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb:

It’s amazing to me that right now on the land and in the sky of the southern continent, we have so many of the old structures recreated…

Hucka D.:

You have the Temple of TILE and the Edwardston Station Gallery in Noru, yes, and then b_hivia. All the original structures created in Gliese.*

bb:

What about the Cub gallery?

Hucka D.:

This is a direct continuation. The first illegal build since then, really, for the family. Our family. The new, illegal build is considerably larger than the old Just Call Me Ernie Banks. And in the sky instead of the sea. But the two are directly tied. You’ve entered, what, phaze 16 of the blog. Amazing.

bb:

Phazes 1, 8, and 15 — all 7 apart — deal with attempted mergers with the Sansara continent. Attempts and then failures. Then escape. For part 1, Baker Bloch ‘splored and ‘splored the ocean bottoms, etc., of that continent. In phaze 8 he hit places he missed in the first search, such as the Ross Sea and so on. In phaze 15 — this is very interesting — a new explorer entered the picture and — how would you put it?

Hucka D.:

There was an exchange of energy. You, or your Baker Bloch, was in Kissling and Lusk at almost the same time as this fellow explorer. This brought the link to consciousness for both involved parties. Then at Fuchsia came the most direct exchange when this was brought to light. Karoz was born at this intersection. Half Mossman, half alien. The most important of your creations so far, perhaps, because he is going to tie the otherwise separated story strand regarding the toy avatars directly to Second Life now. That was the main reason for the intersection. Karoz, and also the Fuchsia Diamond.**

bb:

That’s a different twist to the inability to become completely absorbed into Sansara. The fellow explorer’s story continues on…

Hucka D.:

Yet it will be on another continent soon as well… the Color Sims represent a dead end for her as well.

bb:

Very strange…

Hucka D.:

Lots of strangeness going on now. Who would have predicted that I would recreate b_hivia as an illegal build on my father’s old property?

bb:

So you’re admitting that this is your father’s property and not the one on the same highway but much nearer to Chilbo.

Hucka D.:

Um, yes. Mostly.

bb:

Did your father own both properties?

Hucka D.:

The other is a bleedthrough as well. But I’m now admitting this is the main bleedthrough. Legos.

bb:

Another general energy pocket to work from.

Hucka D.:

Right. You cannot work alone now.

bb:

There seems to be other interactions implied between SL and legos as well. Here’s one at least. Perhaps there’s more.

Hucka D.:

Yup. You need to look at those. Also keep in mind that the original avatars in Linden World looked as much like lego creations as our more modern avatars. For the most part.

bb:

Ahah!

Hucka D.:

Right! Ha!

bb:

So… wow… Hucka D. You’re saying this virtual Lego World, a version of it, already existed in the past. Before SL?

Hucka D.:

Yes. Retrofitting.

bb:

And it was into this world that the toy avatars were invited into? Avatars like Mossman/Gene Fade and also Grassy?

Hucka D.:

Prims do not have to be set up the way they are in modern SL. Prims can be legos as well. There’s a whole sub-culture dealing with that.

bb:

But you’re saying this is where the toy avatar world and the SL avatar world unite or overlap?

Hucka D.:

Yes. Basically.

bb:

Come to think of it, Hucka D., your beehives use prims or primatives in a different way than most SL builds for sure. They’re modules there as well.

Hucka D.:

Precisely. That’s another gradient between the two. My father taught me to build beehives. He taught me to build b_hivia, in fact. And the Ubertemple for that matter. Beehives, like you said, are a little different from most. I’m glad Baker Bloch has decided to include at least one in the new gallery complex [in Noru; this is the Temple of TILE].

bb:

What does this have to do with Lemon World?

Hucka D.:

Lemon World was — is — perpendicular to Lime World or Linden World. Lemon-limes. Sprite. Tyrone… Azure.

bb:

To switch the subject a bit, Karoz is disappointed at not finding his mother at either Mos Ainsley or The Moon.

Hucka D.:

He found his mother on the moon.

bb:

Really. Isis?

Hucka D.:

Yes. Chilbolton. Sirius. Stars. Mars. G… (pause)

bb:

Brainard?

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb:

Hucka D., what of Alice and the overlap now with Fleep and Prok.

Hucka D.:

Yeah, interesting. Just another pointer. In both directions, yours and theirs.

bb:

I have more research to do!

Hucka D.:

Yes. Goodnight and good luck!

*****

* all classic beehive structures, as Hucka D. has called them at least once, originated in the Gliese sim of the Azure Islands, when the family lived there last summer. These primarily include b_hivia and also the Temple of TILE. Originally, beehives were defined by the property boundaries of the parcels they were erected on/designed for. This would then also include the “original” (Cub) beehive.

** The Fuchia Diamond now lies in the very center of my Noru gallery complex in the central island of the various property paths. Already pictured here in the blog. Hucka D., for the Beehive of Truth, merely took copies of this Noru diamond — anyone, actually, can pop over and take a copy of the diamond if they wish!

*** Town Hall meeting minutes for May. Zeek indicated he attended this meeting (?) but I can’t find his name among the attendees.
