Willow Bloo: sweet thank you

Jack Prince: Perception versus imagination?

or a cross between the two

Willow Bloo: sort of

you fill in perceptions

Jack Prince: How do we avoid this?

Willow Bloo: ooh

Jake von Slatt: do you want to?

Jack Prince: Is it possible to do one hundred percent

Willow Bloo: I'll interject when I can

for my own reference, we're at the 34:45 mark

Jake von Slatt: doom vs. zork ?

Willow Bloo: don't know zork

relevent to discussion?

Jake von Slatt: a maze of twisty littla passages, all alike?

Willow Bloo: ah

Jack Prince: Having that helping hand all the time could make us complacent or lazy.

Jake von Slatt: zork is text based

Sent at 10:57 PM on Friday

Jake von Slatt: not quite what I was going for - I'm lagging the conversation. Zork is text based - it's all fill in by imagination.

ah good!

Jake von Slatt: LOL

Jack Prince: I am so lost when it comes to games. One of my downfalls.

Willow Bloo: not a downfall

Jake von Slatt: I don't play them but gamers are interesting people.

My dad is a big gamer

Jack Prince: I was a controller thrower as a child. I never recovered, and it bled over into everyother game: board, card, etc.

Jake von Slatt: actually gamers a good case studies for this - they totally immerse themselves and I'll bet that effect their view of the world when the surface again.

Jack Prince: Books can have the same effect.

Jake von Slatt: totally

Willow Bloo: yes

romance novels are an experience, not good literature

Jake von Slatt: have you read Diana Gabaldon's Outlander? is both.

Jack Prince: Action and questing. Tolkien King

No I haven't

Jack Prince: Couldn't we incorporate the buddhist definition of awareness into our daily life, so that we stay aware of the things around us.
