First and Second Life at least.

Looser Thoughts… June 24, 2011

Filed under: Norum,Uncategorized — baker Blinker @ 9:29 am

Should be able to catch up with blog post texts tomorrow. Exciting things happening in Norum for certain!

Hucka D.:

Here I am.

bb:

Thanks for showing up Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

This is indeed the beginning of 3rd Life beyond 2nd Life. True beginning. Synchpatch. Study.

bb:

More of a move, of sorts, toward OpenSim, and both the isolation and additional creative freedom involved.

Hucka D.:

Pioneers. (pause)

bb:

I suppose I’ll start to be called baker Beach more on this blog.

Hucka D.:

2 Parks. Newton County. Jasper County too. What is life and what is death.

bb:

In a way, the Southern Continent — Jeogeot — is death, Hucka D. Much of my limited readership chose not to follow me when I went there May 2009. For good, it seems.

Hucka D.:

More and more it seems. More and more and more.

bb:

Into the abyss itself.

Hucka D.:

Like The Father before. Now you can receive clues through The Book. The Father Book.

bb:

I am at the center of Jeogeot.

Hucka D.:

You know you are.

bb:

And at the center is a hole to the future. And the past I suppose.

Hucka D.:

Time itself.

bb:

I’m setting you up: Which is the true reality, the Noru Woods or the Mashed Potato Hills directly above it?

Hucka D.:

Like Blue Mountain and Mythopolis before it. Equal yet very different. (pause) Go ahead…

bb:

Mashed Potato Hills has no trees; Noru Woods is obviously full of trees, mostly linden versions. No pools at Mashed Potato Hills; Noru Woods has a number. Waterfall is a link — Tired Falls in the Noru Woods, and Bee Run Falls in MPH. Should I take a picture or 3?

Hucka D.:

Go ahead. We can start that tonight[ as well].

*****

Looks like we’re not going to be able to add pictures to this post tonight for some odd reason, Hucka D., but Widow’s Knob on the ground equals the larger of the two Mashed Potato Hills. There seems to be no equivalent hillock for the second.

Hucka D.:

The story of Widow’s Knob is furthered in the story of Mashed Potato Hill High.

bb:

But not a high school. Just the higher of the two Mashed Potato Peaks. Low and High, then.

Hucka D.:

In a way. In another way it is a school. The Russian Matrix. Underground, where Widow’s Knob could have no underground.

bb:

What of the waterfall? It seems that Bee Run Falls, the 300 meter version, could fall all the way to the ground beside Tired Falls, forming a common pool between the two.

Hucka D.:

That is correct. Shared Pool. Tired Falls itself is more akin to the spring source of the very short Bee Run, only about 10 meters long. And there are no streams in the Noru Woods — another difference. Bee Run is the only stream in Noru, in fact, despite its short length.

bb:

You think that’s the name of it? Bee Run?

Hucka D.:

The Bee smiled and it was so. Scared the water off the heights and into the depths. It fell. Bee Run Fell. Falls…

bb:

Maybe it’s Cub Run instead, Hucka D.

bb:

There we go. Anyway, the Mashed Potato Hills version of the falls is considerably narrower. Of course I created the narrowing. And then the stream emerges from the smaller pool as well — Woods version has no stream. Then the stream quickly drops over Bee Run Falls, which has no equivalent in the Woods as well unless you count… wait, I suppose the Noru Woods waterfall has to count as a stream… duh.

Hucka D.:

The pool is above the falls as well. Tired Pool.

bb:

The oversized tire doesn’t appear in MPH, Hucka D. Not yet anyway. Let’s shift to the Mashed Potato Hill High now that our picture insertion powers seem to be working again.

bb:

Widow’s Knob is the most prominent knoll in Noru Woods, Hucka D. Above is the exact counterpart point in MPH. Same object, even: pipe entrance, the old entrance to the Useless Tube that use to exist here last year. 300 meters long it was.

Hucka D.:

Is the new, duplicate pipe entrance on Mashed Potato Hills High… let’s just call that High Hill and the other one Low Hill… is it, anyway, the entrance to another tube system?

bb:

Russian Matrix? That’s at least what I’ve been experimenting around with, to limited success still.

Hucka D.:

Don’t you think it has to be[ though]? And if so, and it is so, what is the relationship between The Useless Tube and The Russian Matrix? It’s the same type of tubes after all.

bb:

This is quite a bit of fun, Hucka D. So here Blochs is standing in front of the small Gothic castle that we know has no equivalent in the Noru Woods.

But let’s see where he lands directly below.

Hucka D.:

Nutt’n.

bb:

Let’s move to the Ravenwood Cottage, Hucka D. Quickly though.

bb:

Sorry… sidetracked again. It appears the top of Low Peak basically coincides with the top of the stairs leading down to the Blue Feather Gallery just below the Noru Woods, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Very similar but not quite the same. And the differences and similarities list will grow. Or not.

bb:

Thank you.
