Weekly Update – Feb 18 2012


Alright guys. I know I haven’t been posting reviews for the events. I apologize. I really haven’t had time, with the new job and all.

So – updates! The magazine is coming along nicely. Do let me know if you want your artwork or writing included – either through comments, in SL (Chraeloos), or email (laurajones@epithetandsynonym.biz). Otherwise, we are starting a new event, as I posted here, on Thursdays at 4pmSLT. Rhiannon and I are hosting, and it will be held at E&S.

This week held a metric-ton of awesome discussions. I can’t even list all the ones I went to, but there must have been over 15. A particularly awesome one was today at Edutopia, Geekspeak (noonSLT every Saturday). I’ve got the transcript below. We discussed alien life forms and ended up attempting to create a list of criteria for what we would look for on other planets. It was really interesting. Also, Tuesday’s discussion at E&S went really well. We discussed Hume and some of his ideas. I ended up talking as Hume, since his ideas are fairly abstract, and it was a lot of fun and everyone learned a lot. That’s where the idea for everyone taking on a different philosopher or scientist on the Thursday discussions came from.

Sedona Resident was kind enough to put her art up at E&S. There’s six photo’s total of hers, in the upstairs gallery. Please do tip, as she really deserves it, and they aren’t for sale.

I don’t think I wrote about Corona’s lecture last sunday either. Almost 10 people came, and surprisingly not all the same ones from the week before. It was Part 3 of the invention and evolution of religion and magic. Part 4 comes tomorrow at noonSLT, and I hope to see you there!

  • Sunday, Feb 19 2012, noonSLT – Corona Anatine Lecture, Part 4 Invention and Evolution of Religion/Magic

Corona Anatine Lecture Jan 8, 2012


Corona presented her theory that two books of the bible relate to astronomy, specifically constellations, and that many of the descriptions can be described as astronomical events. It was a good turnout with seven people who came, and everyone stayed right till the end. She will be presenting a lecture next Sunday, Jan 15 at noonSLT, at the online E&S Cafe.
