First and Second Life at least.

Measuring things again… January 27, 2010

Filed under: Hucka D.,Jeogeot Continent,Mythopolis (rl city),Sapphire — baker Blinker @ 7:29 am

“I didn’t mind my p’s and q’s enough when counting the number of Jeogeot continent sims. It’s actually 776. 1 from 777. But at least my total for Maebaleia (678) was correct. (pause) Hucka D.?”

Sapphire:

Good that you started exploring Yd Island again and found the house/gallery. I am Sapphire. I was born in the Micro-Hole you probed tonight as well. The Micro-Hole was formed to counter the intense gravity of the Macro-Hole, or what most people knew as just The Hole. The Micro-Hole was a sort of hidden project, although not overtly. You must think about Yd Island and TILE now, baker b. Baker Beach. And the Mmmmmm’s again.

Hucka D.:

Yes, Sapphire is right, baker b. Pudding Hill is a center now, but you must keep Yd Island in the mix. And now you have yet another new structure to deal with. The mythology of Yd Island can even be sharpened now that you are in the heart of Sunklands for real. You must give up Aotearoa. Sorry. Ideally, you would keep everything… (pause)

*****

They may be gone.

Hucka D.:

We’re over here.

Sapphire:

Yd. Island will be needed more in the spring and fall, countered by the winter-summer axis of Sunklands. No… (pause)

*****

“Glop people, Hucka D. What were they in Second Life?”

Hucka D.:

They were never here. They were in your Sharon.

bb:

One of my problems is how to convey through writing the emotions of exploring that region while living in Mythopolis. Sharon was an independent country from Wazob at one time, like Texas from the US before the Mexican War.

*****

bb:

Let’s get this done with tonight as well, Hucka D., and Sapphire. The comparison of ancient Wazob with more modern Jeogeot. Then maybe we can determine some bleedthroughs…

Hucka D.:

There is no parallel to Bridee, your mother’s house, unless you want to count the new finds in Eunhaeng, as you probably should.

bb:

If so, then, it’s split in two in Jeogeot, a night side and a day side. But the same structure.

Hucka D.:

If so, again, then the dry waterfall on the Emerald Center properties with the obvious parallel to the Sampson’s Stones must also be factored in. That’s the province of Emerald, which is, or was, just beyond the central Q province — Zircon, wasn’t it?

bb:

Yes. And this seems to apply, or backed up, by the fact that (Chip) Sampson was a star forward for the Emerald basketball team, its greatest star, perhaps, before (John) Raphael showed up in about 1970.* So, yeah, I think this would *have* to represent the Emerald province of Wazob. Or, I mean, there’s a direct resonance going on between it and Second Life — and the Lake District of England as well. The house: books that can’t be read on one side, night side, and books that can on the day side.

*****

bb:

Jeogeot is about 6 miles wide and 7 miles high, Hucka D. Let’s see, Wazob is maybe 4 miles high and 4 miles wide or so. Not an exact match, but not incomparable. But one of the things I see is the relation of Sunklands to the traditional Sharon country, or what later became the Chrysoberyl province. Now Nick Barkley was a star forward for both the Chrysoberl college basketball team and then the Chrysoberyl pro basketball team. Nick Barkley is a charater in Big Valley (a tv show), which reminds me of that old poem…

Big valley, huge valley
Side for you, side for me

Hucka D.:

That’s your poem. I like “Lucky Penguins Stupid Penguins” better.

bb:

Thanks for that. But it sounds like Big Sink, though. Maybe St. Nick is the patron saint of Sunklands, not St. Lemon. St. Nick is of course Santa Claus to us. Bringing us toys when we were small.

Hucka D.:

Smaller.

bb:

Right (smiles). So, Hucka D. are there any other comparisons to make here?

Hucka D.:

You seem to have covered the major ones. No real parallel to Chilbo, for instance.

bb:

Oh, I guess the Korean Channel would have to be a substitute for Silver Creek, the spine of Wazob. (pause) Before I forget, Hucka D., I think the Corsica continent may have been purposely planned as a type of Russian/Siberia thing, forming slowly west to east across a large breadth. It’s the longest SL continent.

Hucka D.:

But instead of Russia you get Pennsylvania — unplanned.

bb:

Yeah, to emphasize the Egg Hill sink as a center, and some other stuff. Getting back to the Wazob-Jeogeot link, Sunklands must parallel Sharon.

Hucka D.:

Think of your mother’s house, Bridee, and the 2 structures that are so different in Eunheung but yet the same. Underneath is an old map of Second Life, almost from its beginning. Not chance it’s there. Like your old maps of Mythos, or Wazob. *Beanstalk* — food for thought. We better end.

bb:

Thank you.

* Chip Sampson and John Raphael played for a number of years (1970 – 1975) on the Emerald pro basketball team and were considered one of the best, if not the best forward tandem in the league they played (Wazobian Basketball Association, or WBA). They won two championships while playing together. Now all this is imaginary, but a number of years later while attending college (about 1980 or 1981) I met two actual people who were named *Chip and Raphael* I often saw hanging around together. Both were campers who lived in tents at the time. And to add to the oddity, another friend knew this same duo by two totally different names: *John* and Fred respectively.

  1. […] They’re both doves, though. Not Florence and Alabama. But maybe both, like your John and Fred and Chip and Raphael. […]
