Heh heh - the narrator is Nat.

I am trYIng to convince Nat to extend Given Time by simulcasting its real world presence (which reflects virtual SL avatars into real exhibit space) back into SL as a further reflection of real into virtual space. You know: create a new kind of recurring reflection related to but beyond standing between two mirrors, or having a video camera aimed at the video screen to which it is projecting.

That kind of reflection can lead to burnout or breakthrough, take your pick. Like the old Star Trek episode where Kirk defeats the Evil AI by telling it "This statement is a lie." It'll kill you or transcend you.

Nat's always coming up with weird - um I mean contemporary, innovative - concepts like this. He's a heck of an artist, teacher, and leader; and he's also hands-on practical (witness his ability to whip together a few PC chasses, projectors, not to mention custom SL avatar skins).
