First and Second Life at least.

more Jeogeot-Maebaleia examinations, 01 January 13, 2010

Employing the timeline maps from the nifty Maps of Second Life site, I’ve now been able to chart, month by month, how the Second Life mainland formed from 2006 on.

Jeogeot, originally known as the Southern Continent, it seems, first shows up on this grid in 01-01-2006 according to month. I’ve also seen it referred to as the Korean Continent, because of its numerous sims named for Korean locations. It’s that bit of green at the bottom of the map below. To the top we have the larger masses of Heterocera (north) and Sansara (south), the two original Second Life continents, joined to each other by a sim-wide column of water.

By 01-01-2007, Jeogeot is still not complete, being slowly formed from top to bottom, essentially. One year on, the creeping formation of the continent, at least compared to those that follow, had only just started to move around the lower edge of what now is called the Korean Channel (the official Linden name).

What also surprised me is that the Sansara continent was still developing around the edges at the same time as Jeogeot’s formation throughout 2006. Compare this with Heterocera/Atoll Continent, which already stood complete at the beginning of 2006.

2 months later (03-01-2007), a fourth mainland continent begins to form to the east of any former continent. This would become the Maebaleia continent, also known as Satori or the Japanese Continent. This is also the first month that the Jeogeot continent has assumed its final shape, minus the filling in of the Korean Channel and the additional of Mos Ainsley sims about 1 year later (see below). To differentiate between what eventually turned out to be a whole eastern hemisphere of the mainland grid to complement the now almost completed western hemisphere, I’ll color the eastern continents pink in the maps to follow.

By 05-01-2007, the Maebaleia continent already stood complete. Compare its roughly two month creation to that of Jeogeot, which took well over a year. And by this time, even the continent above Maebaleia, Nautilus, was off to a good head start.

Slightly less than a year later (03-01-2008), the aforementioned filling in of the Korean Channel occurred, removing that central notch from Jeogeot appearing above. Difficult to tell from this map if the Mos Ainsley related sims, 3 in number, were added at the same time, but I’m assuming they were in checking other sources. You can also see that Nautilus is well completed by now, and also Corsica, the continent to the north, is rather slowly forming west to east, to be finished by 05-01-2008, at the same time the next continent, Gaeta, has begun. Interestingly, it took Corsica about 9 months to form after the quite quick creation of both Maebaleia and Nautilus in this hemisphere.

And the mainland grid as it stands today, with a completed Gaeta and an as yet unfinished continent to the north of Corsica, even. The still forming Zindra and the spanking new Nascera are not added in, I assume, because of space purposes, both being well to the east and southeast of this central continent cluster respectively.

Another important addition since 05/2008 is the Nautilus City/Blake Sea region, sandwiched between Maebaleia to the south and Nautilus to the north.

“I was born on that island and brought to Yeot, baker b. I am Sapphire.”

bb:

Yd Island?

Sapphire:

Yes. I was born inside the Micro Hole.

bb:

Well… can you speak of that a bit more?

Sapphire:

4-2-2 as opposite of 4-4-2. I am the (missing) 2.

bb:

Were you brought here to *rule* Jeogeot, Sapphire? At least the eastern side?

Sapphire:

Yes. I am Alma.

bb:

Are you like Ozma, then?

Sapphire:

Yes. 1/2.

bb:

Did you create the Korean Channel?

Sapphire:

Yes. Scrabble-Korea. Channel. Chaneller. I am Sapphire and Alma in one.

bb:

And you ruled Jeogeot or 1/2 of Jeogeot from Yeot.

Sapphire:

Not quite. (A bit) further south.

bb:

But I thought you were just a child.

Sapphire:

I am everchild.

bb:

Who rules the western side (of Jeogeot)? Little Robert Plant Variant?

Sapphire:

Yes.

bb:

What role does Sunklands play in this?

Sapphire:

That’s where Peter is buried. Peter’s Grave. In Petemond. Peter’s Mound.

bb:

So my Big E Gallery is placed atop the old position of Petemond.

Sapphire:

Yes. Cross. Built around.

bb:

Petemond is the same as Piedmont? A name corruption.

Sapphire:

Good guess, yes.

bb:

What was in the Aotearoa sink at the time of The Ancients, Sapphire?

Sapphire:

A park. A house. A garden. A path. A rose.

bb:

What happened to Robert Plant Variant on this blog, and Marty?

Sapphire:

They are not needed any longer. They moved to the center and then disappeared. You now know that The Beetles and Lead Zeppelin have karmic issues. Now resolved. Until next time. (smiles)

bb:

What of Carrcass-4? I don’t seem to have any openings into it yet.

Sapphire:

I am the opening.

bb:

You are the guiding spirit of Carrcass-4.

Sapphire:

Yes. It must proceed from One Pink. Make a link with that.

bb:

Thanks, I will.

*****

bb:

I think that collage is about Helen Keller and channeling.

Sapphire:

Alabama. Alma.

bb (continuing):

Seeing, hearing, speaking. The (8) tulips represent “two lips”, you see.

Sapphire:

I am Alabama.

bb:

It’s the same configuration of 8 found in Villeneuve, found in Elderglen. The 3 marbles of red, green, blue — of different sizes — like an altar? They’re on a fork.

Sapphire:

The lips speak poetry. Sprite… spirit.

bb:

I think it’s a death situation. The fish is dead… yellow. Like Bias. Ejected from the red, green, blue bird by a downward (golden) spiral. It is Polk.

Sapphire (repeating):

It is Polk.

Healy, Jeogeot, Yd Island, Nascera…

Filed under: Jeogeot Continent,Kelly Yap Gallery,Nascera Continent,Yd Island — baker Blinker @ 10:50 am

My old digs in Healy. A stream of molten lava now flows right through the place where my Something To CHRO About gallery use to sit. Did the lava destroy the gallery structure?

Ornaglyph Gallery in Yapland and its new black and white look. Here’s Mindy’s flickr site.

Looking up the front (schwa) side of Big E. Is the Big E Gallery destined to be dismantled soon now that I have the Pudding Hill gallery property? Might be.

Nighttime view down into the Otaki Gorge sink and Peter’s Mound. Doesn’t really get old.

Then it’s back to Nascera once more to take another look at the central Elderglen sim.

The Elderglen transporter through colorful mushrooms (east).

Then some kind of musical performance stage looking south from the same position. Might have more to say about that space soon as well.

Ritual objects at the “9th” stone of the Billfork “transporter” in Villeneuve. Pretty sure now that the very similar Elderglen and Villeneuve octagonal set-ups are directly linked, somehow.

View toward Rabbit Head in Ratzenberger from the 8 sided tower just to the north of the transporter, as we’re calling it here.

Baker pondering meanings, once more.
