Motivation


** Woods of Cardonicus and Village of Piedmont **

I have found that sex RP sims are often the most detailed and beautiful. This fits in to the general nature of art where sexual motivation drives us to produce some of the most sublime and well worked art. Sex offers not only a great motivation to designers to stay up all night , but sexuality is key to issues of identity and relationships to others.



I think maybe communities of "pervs", people with sexual interests outside of the TV definition of sexuality, will continue to form some of the richest communities in Second Life, like the Gorian community.

Goean SIMS are some of the best quality and detail in SL. These communities may form Guild in the future, building SIMS to be sold to more conventional groups for more ordinary purposes. In the way the software industry took of in large part because there was a community of dateless geeks obsessed with the new technology a class of sex deviants could produce much of the virtual world of Web 3.0

http://slurl.com/secondlife/Open%20Habitat/60/134/24


Skeptic Magazine: James Randi Interview – Saturday 1 August
Exclusive Second Life Premier Screening of Skeptic Magazine’s James Randi Interview

Date: Saturday 01 August
Time: 13:00 PDT (21:00 GMT)
Place: Open Habitat
http://slurl.com/secondlife/Open%20Habitat/60/134/24

The Skeptic Magazine and the Open Habitat project invite you to an exclusive Second Life premier screening of The Skeptic Magazine interview with James Randi on 01 August at 13:00 PDT (21:00 GMT)

Filmed on 20th April 2008, the day after his presentation to a sell-out, 500-strong audience for the Evening with James Randi and Friends, this footage was filmed exclusively for The Skeptic Magazine.

The link below will take you to a teaser of the full 52 minute interview, which will be released to coincide with the re-launch issue of The Skeptic Magazine in early August – we are also streaming this teaser in world at the Open Habitat Auditorium, so drop by anytime.

The video is a 2 minute snippet from the start of an interview with James Randi, a long-standing supporter of the magazine and of scepticism in the UK generally, so it seems only fitting to re-launch Britain's foremost and longest-running sceptical magazine alongside this interview. Randi also conducted an interview for the first ever issue of the magazine, back in 1987.

The shopping malls and strip bars of past have left and a vast waste land has been created of much of Second Life.

Fetish construction


Fetish Fantasy BDSM Castle and Strip Club

Second Life sees the realisation of sexual fantasy. Sex motivates some of the most amazing artistic structures, just like in RL.

Empty, I think I have been here before but maybe the Orgy room is a standard build.

Colonizing Virtual Reality

This quote from Neuromancer is invariably cited by VR proponents as an inspiration for the new technology.23 Virtual reality had its origin to a great extent in the imagination of science fiction writers and readers. The ideas of hyperspace from Star Wars, transporter beams from Star Trek, cyberspace from Gibson, and many others were familiar fantasies. Science fiction is often a critical and oppositional fictional form, however. The ostensibly alien setting licences writers to discuss contemporary social issues without referring directly to what they criticize. Sci fi often presents dystopic visions of alienation and struggle against impossible problems. Extending the consequences of social trends can be more incisive than overt criticism. Sci fi in its critical mode can show that things perceived as natural and normal are in fact cultural constructs. Neuromancer was intended as social criticism, rather than prediction. As Gibson himself says it is not really a prediction at all:

Green in SL


http://slurl.com/secondlife/Jonestown/180/176/48

Well I think I should point out that mind mills in Second Life that are running all the time just slightly increase the overall energy consumption of a SIM over prims that don't have attached motion, or no PRIMS at all. Every PRIM has an energy cost, its a law of nature and why you can only rez so many.

Defense Mechanism


Cheynatra Furniture !!! in the WW2 RP Sim Free Vice Weapons

Its interesting to speculate how the current problems in Second Life's economy and community, and the larger issue in RL that motivate people coming in to SL, are reflected in the kinds of spaces that are made. Are defensive or military structures and RP a defence mechanism from issues of RL. Do people join steampunk militias and air forces to try and protect themselves from the threats they imagine (real or not) in the Real World?

The above picture was taken by a Republican and Conservative in Second Life.  It and other photos on the GOP Cafe in Second Life show that body and gender formation in Second Life functions independently of political ideology.
