Re: [-empyre-] discussion on Second Life in another list
Interesting discussion! I approached SL with enthusiasm and built a
house (with stairs and doors and bought sofa with a script who showed
my avatar crossing legs and smoking). After two weeks of flying ballon
and swimming/diving, attending a church meeting for a new religion and
gambling some Linden dollars in a virtual casino, I dropped the whole
Later on I went into again, visited my lonely house, wathered the
virtual garden with virtual water and went into the Port, my friends
Art space. I was the only visitor then. I was later invited to a
concert and made my avatar jump with others in an avant garde dance
performance reproduced in "real life" and in SL.
After three months I really felt I exhausted the possibilities of
travel and interaction in SL, too much replics and reproductions of
"real things", furniture you don't need (an avatar don't need sleep,
sit on a couch or eat sitting near a table), clothes you don't need,
houses with living rooms and stairs and gardens and windows you don't
I feel that it's a really waste to have an universe you don't need to
respect the laws of gravity and other physical borders and not use the
"impossible" ways to perform. Why cars in SL? Why ways and motorways
ending in the void? Why are we so obsessed with the reproduction and
multiplication in an endless linear mainstream?
