SKIN BURN 2018!

SKIN BURN 2018 posterOur decompression event consists of a reprise Man Burn with everyone "skinnied down" to their very lowest lag forms. By removing unnecessary scripts and attachments (Let it all GO! Just for the day!) we will have an environment conducive to a great, glorious, big Burn!

The Burns will take place twice on Saturday the 3rd of November: 12:00pm SLT and 6:00PM SLT. Check-in will start 2 hours before each Burn, at an off-playa location. When avatars pass check-in, they are given a special tag and told to teleport to the playa.

To get ready, we distribute scales in world and explain how to remove attachments and scripted items from your avatar and viewer. on Saturday

Group notices with details will have been sent out inworld. If you are not in the BurningMan 2.0 group and you'd like a copy of the information, you can contact iSkye Silverweb inworld.

I, Robot was Great! Even With Glitches!

But it is not quite over yet. Last Sunday, both scheduled Temple Burns were postponed due to technical problems affecting much of SL. It was a huge disappointment not to be able to Burn the Temple that day.

They are rescheduled for Sunday, 4 November. Times are given below:

Morning Burn

10:00am SLT - Lamplighters Procession and Fire Dance followed by a readout of messages from the Temple Censer

11:00am SLT - Temple Burn

--------------------------------

Afternoon/Evening Burn

4:00pm SLT - Lamplighters Procession and Fire Dance followed by a readout of messages from the Temple Censer

11:00am SLT - Temple Burn

A thought for you...consider being in just skin for the Temple Burn as well! This is optional but again, it could help more among us to see an exceptionally beautiful Burn of the Temple.

Google Plus is closing down in 10 months. Are there any plans for this group to migrate over there yet? I have been experimenting with MeWe and so far it appears to be a good alternative.

Theme:
Conception 2018: Prometheus' Gift

And So the Story Goes, That the Gift of Fire Was Stolen...

The inspiration for this theme came from the love of fire that is common to all of us Burners. The sight of a spark inspires us, a raging bonfire enthralls us.

But before fire inspired creativity, it gave warmth to our bodies and flavour to our food. And how did we get fire? We told each other many stories, different peoples everywhere creating various myths, handed dowun through the generations.

So many myths, so many stories. Fire stolen by gods, mankind or animals. It gives, and yes, it takes, life. Ancient Greek and Roman mythology, Etruscan, Egyptian, Chinese and Indian, Native Peoples. In some stories, fire was a gift; in others a stolen power; in still others a side effect of the actions of gods and goddesses.

Dragons and spirits, beavers and birds, demigods and even the gods themselves.

Hence is mentioned the coming of fire to humanity by way of a thieving, sympathetic Titan who pays dearly for disobeying the will of the gods. But this is just one story, and there are so many others - share the favourites that tell the "history" of how humanity came to master fire. You can even create your own story of fire and its arrival among mankind.

Fire, however it came to us, we see its dual nature as destroyer, and also creator, of life. We tell and re-tell the stories, and while we may understand more, and know more, it's always good to look back, to remember the ways in which we once explained the mysteries of the world around us.

Creative Burners near and far, we call you to sign up and participate in the next event to take place on the virtual playa on Deep Hole: Burnal Equinox. The event dates will be March 24-25, 2018.

The Theme is "H2O = Water but H2+O -> Fire"

What does this mean? It is in two parts. The first we all know, that H2O represents WATER. But...the second part is not a chemical formula; rather it is an attempt to describe the process of combustion that results in FIRE. Both utilise hydrogen and oxygen, but manifest in different ways.

This excerpt from The Urantia Revelation may inspire ideas for creativity in building, art, and music for this event:

"Mathematics, material science, is indispensable to the intelligent discussion of the material aspects of the universe, but such knowledge is not necessarily a part of the higher realization of truth or of the personal appreciation of spiritual realities. Not only in the realms of life but even in the world of physical energy, the sum of two or more things is very often something more than, or something different from, the predictable additive consequences of such unions. The entire science of mathematics, the whole domain of philosophy, the highest physics or chemistry, could not predict or know that the union of two gaseous hydrogen atoms with one gaseous oxygen atom would result in a new and qualitatively superadditive substance—liquid water. The understanding knowledge of this one physiochemical phenomenon should have prevented the development of materialistic philosophy and mechanistic cosmology.

"Technical analysis does not reveal what a person or a thing can do. For example: Water is used effectively to extinguish fire. That water will put out fire is a fact of everyday experience, but no analysis of water could ever be made to disclose such a property. Analysis determines that water is composed of hydrogen and oxygen; a further study of these elements discloses that oxygen is the real supporter of combustion and that hydrogen will itself freely burn."

The event will officially open with a walk-on by the Lamplighters at 10:00am SLT on March 24th, and Burners are welcome join us in the fun.

In the meantime, we come together as a community to prepare for this event. You are invited to PARTICIPATE, because no Burner is a mere bystander on the pixel dust of BURN2's Deep Hole playa that is our virtual Home. There are several ways in which you can do this.

Build on a Plot!

Plots are free, but limited in number.

Perform on the Stage!

The stage, a quarter circle, will be specially built for this event, where many can gather to listen, to dance and to enjoy this opportunity to celebrate the Equinox that brings the change of seasons and sunlight.

Sign up and the Performance Team will contact you to schedule your performance.

Become a Fashionista!
