Wandering in, a little lost

Post by Traveller in Time » Tue Aug 23, 2016 6:54 pm

Excuse me for my weird language, it seems :D

I'm Dutch
Electronics engineer
Been playing with lights (and fire) since age 10.
Created micro burns in 90s some lasting for more then a month.
Found the real Burn on the WEB about 03 seemed scary.
Since 09 yearly tapping into the streams and blogs.
:coffee:
I would need large funds to get me and gear to BRC.
Dont bother, perhaps one day . . .

My ePlaya Registered User number is 95750
That would be -9+57-5-0!=42 or 9*5-7+5-0!=42, so I am a true Virgin!
Sorry, a habit from another world.
And can I be an Ember? (as well as a playa virgin)
Glowing in aspiration to become a true burner once . . .

Fitting in . . . does not compute . . .

(I am a bit authistic >> :? )
Is that not what is published on the front page?
Ten Principles starting with Radical Inclusion
My dictionary says about 'Inclusion' == the action or state of including or of being included within a group or structure.

However this Inclusion goes with accepting the Principles; I also have to accept anyone as they are.

:twisted: How about 'leave no trace' on the ePlaya. Is our trace not the only contribution to the site.

What am I doing here ? Trying to fit in ?

Chances are pretty slim I will ever make it to Nevada.
Perhaps a more local burn.

I kind of like the Principles and the effect on groups trying to live to them.
And chances are I will fit in as more or less like minded they will not differ much from my own life philosophy.

FOMO I personally do not like mnemonics as there is one for every character combination. Fear Of Missing Out.
Some are having that fear apparently.

How about doing will get you somewhere,
while just thinking about it does not get you anywhere.

I should be going to camp Envy. (Envy is based on FOMO)

OK here goes;
Radical Self-reliance should make you void the entire issue.
Radical Self-expression makes you show your a burner (birgin / virgin / ember :D ) at heart and perhaps only not present.
Communal support would be just dance along with the (Camp Envy) supporters on the playa.
Already being aware of Burning Man and trying to share the concept with the default world is a form of participation.
Immediacy as in reading comments from many burners around the world and feeling to be part of that part of the community. It is not much compared to being in the real Black Rock City.

I took the week off to follow the streams and 'drown' in the experience.
The first days setting up (barely functional) computers and connecting television and audio.

Only to find out my favourite Amp had a burnt out safety checking chip. Just bridged it. Worst case the entire amp will burn :D

Late Friday I found the Web-cast on the audio behind the video stream. I have had the stream active since Monday and not noticed the once an hour chat?

It feels great as 'your' presence is recognised on the playa.
I think I joined Camp Envy a long time ago.

The week feels like a roller coaster ride probably mainly by adapting 9 hours time difference.

Why not react by creating something?

Perhaps I just like to share some happy time with probably like minded.

I am still changing, managed to contibute to the Fuck thread . . .

Sad as it is due to a loss.




On a happy note: Tomorrow this time we will have a 2nd life session on the WebCast,
And I plan to be present, after more then a decade finally managed to create a 2nd life account.
