Notations For the weekend: On SecondLife & Other Thoughts

It is the weekend here in Outsiders.     We continue to be fascinated with the our World ever more.    As we deliberate today, share updates in our daily Twitter Feed, we also have a eye to the future.   This channel's mission has been part of it.   One of the tools "on the grid' has been Second Life.

We have recently taken an interest to assess Second Life after our Founder initially got acclimated with it.    It has not been as "prevalent" now and it is considered more of a "niche".   One thing we do continue to note is that this venture is backed by Pierre Omidyar of the eBay fame who also has gone on now to launch the Intercept.     Our team was out in "Second Life" recently:

It is also of note to be reminded about the "why" one is here as our team selected this for all to enjoy as our #outsider journey continues which our team was quite moved by:

“May I be the doctor and the medicine
And may I be the nurse
For all sick beings in the world
Until everyone is healed.
May a rain of food and drink descend
To clear away the pain of thirst and hunger
And during the aeon of famine
May I myself change into food and drink.
May I become an inexhaustible treasure
For those who are poor and destitute;
May I turn into all things they could need
And may these be placed close beside them….
May I be protector for those without one,
A guide for all travelers on the way;
May I be a bridge, a boat and a ship
For all who wish to cross the water.
May I be an island for those who seek one,
And a lamp for those desiring light,
May I be a bed for all who wish to rest,
And a servant for those needing serivce.”
