First and Second Life at least.

More Thoughts August 14, 2012

Filed under: Carrcass-7,Sunklands,Uncategorized — baker Blinker @ 7:24 am

Haven’t decided exactly what to do with this blog. Logically I suppose I should give it up and create a whole new blog that isn’t Second Life centered but instead Real Life centered (as in Frank/Herman Park Real Life exploring stuff centered). Another option is just to make new posts of this particular blog private as needed and keep moving on here.

I don’t invest any money in Second Life now but I still have builds there: a gallery or two, a temple or three, and some other random places. Most of these are found on Hilo Ridge in Lower Austra. Hilo may also be the same as Philo. So I still have a “center” in Second Life, a type of presence. But virtually speaking I don’t explore there any longer except in spot locations now and then when I get bored of doing other things. I’ll keep popping over to Sunklands and the old Pietmond grounds and other locations there every now and then. I’ll still manifest in Noru and Greater Chilbo in general once in a while. Still will check in with Yeot (Teepot/Boris location) every week or four. Most of all I’ll peruse the cheapest mainland locations for sale.

Presently, my “art” budget for the month, about 50 dollars as I’ve determined, is tied up in music and video purchases/rentals. This is for a/v synching purposes. The Billfork Agreement prevents me from talking about this subject too much. In the blog, as regular reader knows, synchs are codenamed carcasses. I’ve just created a recipe for Carcass-7, the last in this line of 37 or 38 works so far, and will start to tape this week. Very exciting. The formation of Carcass-7 seems to indicate the end of this blog, however.

Why do I feel this? Basically I need to frame the blog so I can begin to figure out what the heck it is and how to organize all the thoughts and information inside. This is the Baker Blinker Blog, created from 2008 to 2012. Put a tombstone on it. So I might as well call it the end and go ahead from there. What is all this about?? Essentially I think it is about synchronicity, pure and simple. Second Life was a place, especially toward the beginning, that provided a great backdrop for synchronicity study in the shape of this blog, or recorded or attempted to be recorded in this blog. Now this energy has shifted elsewhere, mainly to real life explorations in Frank/Herman Parks, but also, in the future, other attached locations within the same county, *my* county. I am tempted to call it Haze County.

Why the needed secrecy? I’ve mentioned the Billfork Agreement, which calls for this. Also I don’t want the general public to know the whereabouts of me and my parks, in tandem with it. The Billfork Agreement suggests that secrecy, when in doubt, wins out over exposure. By blocking off a part of my life in this way, I give the hidden side extra energy because I don’t have to deal with this public scrutiny. This probably makes it akin to The Residents’ Theory of Obscurity connected with their own very mysterious figure known as N. Senada.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/N._Senada

Senada’s “Theory of Obscurity” states that an artist can only produce pure art when the expectations and influences of the outside world are not taken into consideration. Senada and his theory are referred to almost exclusively in connection with avant garde musical group The Residents.

All participants in the Second Life experience are called Residents, known collectively as The Residents I suppose. Curious synchronicity once more.

The peak of My Second Lyfe experience comes in the region known as Sunklands, containing mysterious (once again) sinkholes in the southwest part of Jeogeot, the largest mainland continent of this world. In a probable direction, Sunklands was much more fulfilled than it is in this recorded world-reality. It was in Sunklands that various variants were gathered together to create a Sunklands Initiative, which I first became aware of (along with the region itself) in August 2009. These variants included both Little Robert Plant Variant (a variant of Robert Plant, former led singer of Lead Zeppelin), and also Marty, a variant of Paul McCartney. LRPV was the more formed and solid of the two, being the main guest spirit on this blog for a considerable number of months (Hucka D., of course, being the house blog spirit, so to speak). But many questions still remain unanswered about the Sunklands Initiative. It appears to have been primarily organized by Dr. Blood, whose physical appearance seems similar or perhaps identical with the Tinman of Oz of “Wizard of Oz” fame. Dr. Blood seems mainly attached to the Aotearoa sink, one of the six identifiable sinkholes in the region. Little Robert Plant Variant or LRPV comes from the Sternberg metro area according to legend, which is just north of Sunklands, and departed from his main variants’ path in this city by giving up the Zeppelin Tube, containing the sealed energy of the group itself. He gave the Led Zeppelin group energy to the Initiative, then (in essence). Marty also comes from outside Sunklands, but, once again, from nearby, this time to the west in a place called WES and West End. A departing point from the main variant band, once more, occurs here, with the decision to keep the name Beetles instead of Beatles. In *this* reality, the insects are called beatles instead, perhaps. Early in their Second Life career, The Beetles and Marty had to “remember” the events of the Lennon killing, which led them to the Nautilus continent and Roostre’s Peninsula, where they reexamined the Sea of Green through the Yellow Submarine. The Sea of Green is the same as the Valley of Nye, whereupon [spied on] by the Eye of Rye.

Hucka D.:

Let me interrupt you here, baker b., for we have to move on to other variants tonight as well. One is OWZ, pronouced like “owes” as in someone owes someone something. He has recently appeared on this blog in connection with The Table.

bb:

But it was known that Marty and Little Robert Plant Variant appeared in the blog at this time in preparation for Carcass-3. Carcass-3 is where Sunklands and Second Life itself peaked for me, but then returned its energy to carcasses afterwards. Carcass-3 is a small, single movie affair. The story is mainly in the synchronicities surrounding it and leading up to it. The story is mainly found in Sunklands.

Hucka D.:

From Carcass-3 you can know everything.

bb:

Then Carcass-4, 5, 6 are now apparently referred to as the Pietmond carcasses, because they are composed when I was involved with that land, which, of course, is also a part of Sunklands.

Hucka D.:

It is a struggle of carcasses to escape the gravity of Your Second Lyfe. The energy was collected into Pietmond by that time, which began to make it easier. Carcasses grew again; your attachment to Second Life as a whole, at least outside of Pietmond, lessened.

bb:

And now it seems I’ve escaped altogether, and the Carcasses have come out of the clouds and into the open air again. Carcass-7 is flying.

Hucka D.:

Carcass-7 is important[ true].

“You forgot something.”*

6/14/12:

I have now returned to Jeogeot, at least temporarily.

I’ve purchased a 3584 parcel in the very heart of the Aotearoa sink, which at the time of the sell was the cheapest mainland lot per square meter available, right at the top of the list. Cost me the stupendous amount of $2.90; broke the bank. To buy it I had to abandon the recently purchased 2048 parcel in Goremoor, plus 1/2 of the other 2048 parcel in the same sim bordering Mysten Parva. I kept a square 1024 in Lower Austra that The Table House occupies. Let’s see, as I’m checking now I still have 55 prims to play around with there, which might be enough.

I’m pretty sure — fairly sure — that the land I just bought in Aotearoa represents the old homestead property of Dr. Blood of Table fame. Let’s bring in Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Had to try it out. But will you keep it?

bb:

That’s a question I was hoping you could shed light on, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Let’s ask Dr. Blood.

Dr. Blood:

Hi. I’ve softened.

bb:

Great. Can you tell us more about Aotearoa?

Dr. Blood:

My land, my sink. Gushing. Then quiet. Like now… quiet. You are at the heart.

bb:

Should The Table even be set up *here* instead of Goremoor?

Dr. Blood:

Not yet. But soon.

bb:

If I keep the Goremoor land abandoned, I’ll still — the Philo Line will still be intact in the main.

Dr. Blood:

Keep both.

bb:

I’m not sure that’s practical.

Dr. Blood:

Let’s talk Table, then.

bb:

You’re sitting between OWZ and Peter SoSo now as we pick up the action.

Dr. Blood:

I am X-Ray.

bb:

Cool.

Dr. Blood:

I have X-Ray. Within me. Take it. (Dr. Blood opens up a panel in his chest which, indeed, includes a bevy of x-rays. bb removes and takes a look at them.)

bb:

There’s no heart.

Dr. Blood:

Now there is: heart. These are old… obsolete. Thank you. We can proceed. Pietmond. Ancient.

—–

OWZ (at Table, also taking a look at the x-rays):

Well I’m convinced. Where do we start[ again]?

—–

“Well, I’ve decided to just keep both the Goremoor and Aotearoa properties, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Smart move. As it should be. You’ll have fun in Aotearoa. Rebuild the original Pietmond there. You’ll see.

bb:

Thanks!

Little did the aunt know that Shaun had actually already encountered one of the “little people”, Arrietty, one day while out in the garden and found her again in his room that night while she was out on her first borrow with her dad. They were in Shaun’s room trying to get a piece of tissue when Shaun turns and spots them. He tells her not to be afraid but she accidentally drops a cube a sugar she had borrowed and the pair quickly retreats. The next morning Arrietty finds the cube the sugar and a note saying “You forgot something.

Hey. What’s up tonight?

Hucka D.:

Usual. Beanies. Linguini. But not linguinis.

Hucka D.:

Maybe not. They need a history[, though]. I told you that. I told you to write one. Not write one, I mean.

bb:

Yeah you told me to stay sort of noninvolved.

Hucka D.:

This is the beginning of virtual reality. People don’t understand the uniqueness of the situation. The world is dying. Second Life, Second World. Things go outward into the world again. Seeds. Here and there. But you have Carcass-One now. A new peak, a new height. Keep on climbing. Keep on seeking. Next will be the destruction of groundside. Next will be the creation of Carcass-None. Carcassonne.

bb:

What does that mean really?

Hucka D.:

The town is split already, East and West. One is One and one is None. Already. One from None. Easy to see, right?

bb:

Brainard Hole, The April 15, 2012

Filed under: Jeogeot Continent,Synching Creek (RL) — baker Blinker @ 7:31 am

A pool of water about half the size of Square Island Pond where Synching Creek (Real Life name: Sinking Creek) seems to simply disappear into at the southwest edge of the prestigious Olde Farm Golf Course.

Zooming in. Notice that the pool, which I call the Brainard Hole per Hucka D.’s suggestion in a recent post, is roughly shaped like a backwards capital “E”. Then notice that a nearby sandtrap, “pointed” directly at it, seems to reflect this shape backwards, making a roughly regular capital “E”. Too queer of a juxtaposition, given all else that seems connected to it, outlined a bit below…

… like this missing “E” from the east side of the Moonlite Theatre sign, as also picked up by Edna in her excellent Signs Sign Sign blog post “the moonlight th_atre is opening soon.”… 🙂

(west side now)

… and the fact that a giant capital “E”, in both forwards and backwards facing directions, plays such a large role in Jeogeot mysticism, as discussed in posts such as “Biggie Island” from this January.

Big E in Pietmond. Notice especially the similarity in shape of Big E from this angle with the Brainard Hole from the first photos of the current blog entry. Is the Brainard Hole a dimensional doorway, perhaps to Second Life or to a “second life”, as in a death state??

—–

“So the idea is that the Brainard Hole is mirrored in not one but several, perhaps even many Synching Creek D.M.A. objects, Hucka D.”

Hucka D.:

Let’s count.

bb:

Let’s do. Well, there’s the Moonlite Theatre sign, obviously, with its missing “E”. Before additionally associating it with the Brainard Hole I already connected this to the Big E formed by Korean Channel sims in Second Life. That’s at East End, Synching Creek D.M.A. There’s an East End and a West End to the mystery area, then.

Hucka D.:

There’s a forward “E” and a backward “E”.

bb:

Right. Because Big E can be turned around to form the Big Schwa. And that’s linked to Eschwa Park in Chilbo and its own reversible “e”, little one this time.

Hucka D.:

What passes between them?

bb:

The Oblong Box or box filled with Oblong letters I believe. Perhaps this represents a golf course because it is a green box. Green like Ireland.

Hucka D.:

[More specifically] it is a golf tee. Directing your attention back to the Sunklands Golf Course in the Synching Creek Designated Mystery Area.

—–

Hucka D.:

Are you ready to tee it up yet?

bb:

Not sure, Hucka D. The letters in the Oblong Box: sign letters?

Hucka D.:

Yes (!)

bb:

Continuing our SCDMA object review, we have the missing Barker Cemetery sign that eventually points to the largest of 3 such cemeteries in Washington County, where — ultra-mysterious again — Philip Lime, er Linden shows up. He is gazing over the cemetery from a respective corner, just like the Philip Linden avatar doll is checking out the Korean Channel centered Jeogeot continent in my old Blue Feather Gallery, Hucka D., and on top of the lower prong of the Big E ta boot, making up the core of that gallery.

—–

bb:

What else? Robert E. Lee is obviously Brainard in this blog entry picture, Hucka D. Motoring around again as I put it.

Hucka D.:

Brainard has been reborn; restored. Looking for his Hole again. Not a hole in the wall though but a hole in the ground like a well. Well, well, well.

bb:

Good title for a post, eh? (smiles)

Hucka D.: (smiles)

Brainard:

You have saved me. I am motoring again. I fight Amoco. I will outfox them like a Silver Fox. They will not win and the great state of Virginia shall be saved. I will *not* drop down a hole. I am the Silver Fox.

“But I still have the Temple of TILE. 2 of ‘em in fact.” March 9, 2012

Filed under: Lower Austra,Seven Stones,Uncategorized,Yeot — baker Blinker @ 9:12 am

Hucka D.:

Carcassonne is lonely and wonders why you moved her out to this barren landscape. She misses Pietmond. She liked the environment there.

bb:

Perhaps Siliconicus is closer to Hermania, since both are sort of Astra. ASTRA.

Hucka D.:

If so, TILE Creek is then both Route 13 and Route 14. United. Is that possible? They are the same length as TILE Creek most likely: 1 1/4th miles. I think it is so. SoSo so.

bb:

With Astra in the middle, formerly called Australa. Astra… makes sense.

Hucka D.:

Does Carcassonne buy into this[, though]? Does she recognize the connection with Tippy?

bb:

And so Tip Drip. Hmmm… dunno Hucka D. Makes sense?

Hucka D.:

The tree in Siliconicus temple would be whole tree but also the several dead rhododendron bushes around it. Carcassonne can see that. She is Tippy.

bb:

Where’s TILE or Tyle or Tyler, then?

Hucka D.:

The temple itself. The 3rd floor is Hermania as a whole. But also the 1st and 2nd floors are Hermania as well — the labyrinth is Hermania. If you…

bb:

If I don’t have the temple, I don’t have much life in Second Life.

Hucka D.:

Good. Now… place the temple in the center. Where would that be?

bb:

Pietmond.

Hucka D.:

That’s what Carcassonne needs. But it can wait.

—–

bb:

But in another way, perhaps a stronger way now, Siliconicus — Astra, after all — is the center. This is where the Temple of TILE is founded in Second Life.

Hucka D.:

You better talk to Carcassonne[, then]. You better tell her all of this to make her feel better. She’s not convinced, believe me.

bb:

Carcassonne has been replaced by a giant emerald in Yeot, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Not replaced. That’s her as well.

“You should visit[ her] more often.”

 

“Boris is no more… March 8, 2012

Filed under: Uncategorized,Yards Creek (CREEK),Yeot — baker Blinker @ 9:01 am

… Hucka D. But I still have the Temple of TILE. 2 of ’em in fact.

Hucka D.:

Green being in both. Cool. Coolie I mean.

bb:

I think this is a good move. Focus should be on Hermania and the Great Outdoors as a whole. But Pietmond could return — Phaze 3.

Hucka D.:

To Hermania now[, though]. You have 2 beaches, north and south, equidistant from the centering Hermania. Yet only one (North) seems to allow access into Hermania. The other is locked/barred. Pathfinder Rock may not be a good name[ for it] after all.

bb:

But I mean it’s very obvious that these 2 beaches are twinned, north and south, and mark the basic north-south boundaries of Hermania itself. Or actually in terms of real directions this would be east and west. Let’s just, for now, call them Up Beach and Down Beach. I see them as red and blue.

Hucka D.:

True[ enough].

bb:

Red is Mars Beach, logically enough.

Hucka D. (offering name):

And then the other would be Jupiter Beach. True enough. Between them is Astra. Australa.

bb:

I’m tempted to call the longer, winding path on the lower side of Hermania the Long Path, logically enough. Every time I walk it it seems to become longer and more convoluted (!).

Hucka D.: As you have guessed, it is changing and hiding itself more each time you visit.

bb:

Long Path would start at Mars Beach or more specifically Pathfinder Rock just downstream from this beach.

Hucka D.:

That is correct.

bb:

But there is no quote unquote short path leading from Mars Beach directly to Hermania here, although I’ve hiked through the brush to reach it from this beach twice now. Instead Short Path, the legitimate path, comes from the direction of the *other* equidistant beach of Jupiter. That’s the only really practical way to Hermania — one way in and one way out basically.

Hucka D.:

Basically. [Other] things may open up. The woods keep changing — hard to keep up.

bb:

Long Path crosses two legitimate flows of water, as yet unnamed.

Hucka D.:

We can name Astra Beach, though.

bb:

OK, we can do that. It’s the beach at Hermania I’m assuming. A smaller one that either Mars or Jupiter but still a beach.

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb:

So this is like the hikers heading from Jupiter Beach toward Hermania (blue) and then from Mars Beach to Hermania coming from the opposite direction. Only one, for *now*, is correct.

Hucka D.:

Very good. Astra is also 7 Stones. 7 asteriods perhaps.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Largest_asteroids#Largest_by_diameter

bb (contining this thought):

Whole Tree must be a representation of the 7 stones as well, Hucka D. Like the 7 whole tones I suppose.

Hucka D.:

Nice.

bb:

Since the 7 whole tones are all white keys, is this Spectre[, Alabama] Hucka D.?

[no answer]

bb:

Where are the sharp and flat keys, then?

[no answer]

bb:

I think I know. Stick Stack, pheh.

Hucka D.:

That time of month again, eh?

bb:

Yeah. Decision gate. Tomorrow. But less money involved this time than often happens.

Hucka D.:

Might as well just keep it[ then].

bb:

I now have the Temple of TILE in Boris, Hucka D. That could be a decision tipper-maker there.

Hucka D.:

What is the emerald? Does it have a name? Interesting new development.

bb:

Hold on…

Hucka D.:

I mean, does it help your experience or aid your experience of walking the labyrinth?

bb:

Not sure. Don’t see how it could hurt, though.

Hucka D.:

The cleared out space in the temple is the same as Hermania. Add the branches and you’re done.

bb:

I thought of that as well[ not surprisingly].

Hucka D.:

The emerald subs for Sharon, don’t you think.

bb:

Has to.

Hucka D.:

bb:

Whaddaya think? Keep the 512, which is free after all this month, and get rid of the rest.

Hucka D.:

Sounds good. We better get to Hermania tonight.

bb:

Well, that money, that 25 dollars I save this month will go to toys and such for Hermania and perhaps NORRIS. Or somewhere else on TILE Creek.

Hucka D.:

It has begun.

bb:

Maybe raise it to 50. Think I took your lines again.

Hucka D.:

[That’s] OK.

Hucka D.:

25 smackeroos is a lot of Art Bears (smiles).

bb:

But we haven’t yet talked of Hermania.

Hucka D.:

Only prices.

bb:

I do like it better without the, after all, function-less towers now.

Hucka D.:

You can choose tomorrow. You don’t have to do it tonight.

bb:

So what kind of avatars lived in Hermania, Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

Humanoid. And Mossmen. And Marbles. And Mmmmmmm’s of course [since their homeland was so close]. Even Second Life avatars were there, baker b.

bb:

Were *you* there?

Hucka D.:

You know it!

bb:

How about Art Bears?

Hucka D.:

Why not.

bb:

And Henry L. Cow, I suppose.

Hucka D.:

We can work that in for sure. It’s all still in the works after all.

bb:

Could write a Book of Gong.

Hucka D.:

Read please (smiles).

bb:

Thanks!
