I thought the breathtaking Somniatis build at SL11B went with this meme.

Epsilon and Kaelis Ember
“Somniatis” (sohm-nee-ah-tis); Latin for ‘to dream’.
Somniatis is a meditation piece — something of
travel, contemplation and beauty. It flows upward,
towards a higher state of digital consciousness
via surreal imaginings and dream-imagery. Things
become more solid, complex and advanced as
individuals travel to the apex of the spiral — the
end of their journey — going from the state of
“idea” to the state of “completion”.
On the way back down, the traveler re-connects
with the primal technological state — the formation
of the idea. The code. The data. Which works to
operate the abstract core of the completed
Second Life is to live within a collective
consciousness. We journey through these vast
terrains of ever-expanding, ever-changing worlds
— worlds that are mirrors of our inner thoughts
and inner selves.
Second Life is a pocket dimension of digital
existence, where dreams are realized in a very
tangible manner. We weave the thread between the
realms of reality and that of our psyche – which
is endless, infinite and ever-growing upward and
We are a generation of digital shamans. “
Direct from the notecard at Somniatis.
1. How is your resurrected avatar different?
Through experience and time many aspects have changed from appearance to more importantly thought and action.
2. Can you truly know a place if you haven’t left it and returned?
I honestly don’t think you can.
3. The, as yet, vaporworlds of High Fidelity & SL2 are coming on strong! Of course, so did Blue Mars & Cloud Party. Will you try these worlds when they’re available? Would you maintain “dual citizenship” in SL and SL2 or High Fidelity?
I would keep my foot in all worlds until i knew what was best for me.
4. What would it take from SL2 or High Fidelity for you to say farewell to SL?
Amazing things with room for my friends.
5. Does your computer or graphics card need a resurrection? How do you imagine your new computing life?
Who’s doesn’t! I recently got a new laptop and my graphics world has become so amazing. I am looking forward to the next leap i can take in that direction..it will be awhile.
6. If you resurrect multiple times (have multiple alts in SL, or avatars in other worlds) how do you know what your core identity is? What is your core identity?
“wherever you go ..There you are” No mater what form or mask you wear you are still you.

Oh gosh so many 60’s rock, big band, swing, rockabilly, jazz, blues ….oh wait we can still hear so much of these and more.
