The Reflections Group is no longer an official Koryphon Academy class however, the Academy supports its efforts!! The Meetings are meant to help all attendees to grow personally in our virtual experience. What does that mean? Well we discuss a wide variety of topics that highlights what VIRTUAL LIFE can mean to us personally. From technical issues with avatars and/or grid, to what we 'get out of' virtual life, to what are our future dreams/goals/visions. The Good - Bad - Ugly. It is an OPEN, honest and sincere talk on how Virtual Life helps us .....PERIOD!

Come join us!! Tuesday's at noon - Alternate Metaverse Grid - Woodhaven Retreat Region
The WHY? of virtual life.

(first paragraph in italics)
Gray Delwood (avatar's name) is a freelance writer and explorer of Virtual Life platforms for thirteen years (Second Life and OpenSIM to be specific). With a real life background in psychology, Gray often thinks about the social construct known as "virtual life simulations". In this article, he offers a few nuggets for your consideration in hopes that it might spur some fresh thinking about the "WHY?" of a virtual life.

While teaching in an adult degree completion program and during a class break, I heard students chatting about "Second Life" - later to find out that it was a computer 'game'. [Also later, I found out to NEVER call it a game!] To satisfy my curiosity and understand why they were so animated and excited about this topic, I spent the next couple of weeks exploring this mystery. I created an account, made an acceptable avatar and jumped into what I thought would be a three, maybe four week journey.

Needless to say, after thirteen (fourteen? loss track) years I am here writing my fifth article on this amazing digital vortex of an experience. I will try my best to focus on a narrow field of thought. I want to ask three questions and highlight the third and final one. The key words for each of the questions are as follows:
WHAT? A very tangible and fact oriented question.
HOW? More to do with 'process'
and
WHY? Now this word/question opens up the depth of the universe itself. (insert spooky music here lol)

~ companionship / friendship
~ need to be creative (build, script and art)
~ the need to be MORE than I am in real life


~ companionship / friendship

Meeting today of the Reflections Group on Fire and Ice grid. (1:00pm grid time) The topic will be: "Retirement - Truth or Fiction?" [the sub-topic will be on "FEAR".] Do they relate at all???? We'll see.


Hello OpenSim friends…

I wanted to post the rest of our meeting dates so you can plan accordingly.
The interaction in these meetings have been a real joy to me and I hope to those
that attended. We have had some wonderful reflections on our many years in virtual
reality. The insights, laughs and discoveries have been a hoot to witness.

If you are not yet aware of exactly what "Reflections" is all about, let me give you
some details: Reflections is a group meeting open to all residents of Opensim and
is now conducted in THREE grids. It is an open and honest discussion on a
variety of topics about the personal experiences of those that attend.

The overall 'mission' of this type of event is two-fold: 1. To promote 'community'.
The trust that is built when people share their experiences often builds a sense of
belonging. We often relate to others when we hear their history/stories. 2. Out
of this 'relating', we can more easily feel a sense of, "I am not alone.' We can learn
about others and possibly better understand ourselves.

Please join us as you can. Voice must be activated but you do NOT need to speak.
Many text their stories and find it very rewarding. Hope to see you there!!

Sunday Oct 4th at 1:00, you are invited to do just that! How did you get 'into' virtual life? How many years? What was the most embarrassing thing that has happened? What have you experienced that was outrageous? How much RL do you bring in? Who is your weirdest friend? What have you learned about yourself? ~~These are but a few of the possible topics for what is now called "Reflection Sunday" Join Us!
