Speaking to my own ghost.

Posted in Cleverness, inworldz, Obsessiveness, Second Life, secondlife on May 11, 2014 by Wizzy

Yesterday I couldn’t attend the opening of Glyph Graves’ new installation at Inworldz Translation sim.  The sim wouldn’t allow me to connect to it. I tried and tried, using three different viewers.  I was able to get onto the SecondLife LEA21 sim for SL’s side of the multi-grid communication experiment.  See, the deal is that from either world, you will see a ghost appear of whoever’s avies are present on the sim in the other world.  By clicking on the ghost, barring any technical issues (like a slow internet connection) you can speak to that avie in the other world in your own open chat.

Today I gave it a shot and found SL’s side at LEA21 to be empty of traffic – except for PatriciaAnne Daviau.  I found out from her that she was also present at the Inworldz Translation sim… so naturally, I had to log in to Inworldz and go there too.  Now we were both present simultaneously in both worlds.  Now it gets interesting because our ghosts now appeared in both worlds as well.  By clicking on our own ghost, we could chat with ourselves in the other world.

This is an intriguing idea, thought up by the redoubtable Glyph Graves, who likes to crash sims almost as much as I do.  The tech utilizes the same multi-grid communication protocols that were used by the now-defunct Radionne multi-grid communicator of a few years ago.

This is a screenshot of PatriciaAnne and myself logged in simultaneously to both SecondLife and Inworldz, and our respective ghosts:

Newly Discovered Complex Polyhedron

Posted in Building, Cleverness, Obsessiveness on January 25, 2012 by Wizzy

While I was in my workshop on Inworldz, playing around with various shapes that are made of the Golden Rhombus, by accident I stumbled upon a previously undiscovered complex polyhedron.  I went online and searched for any information about this particular shape and couldn’t find anything.  I found a similar object on Wolfram, but this one is definitely different.

The Golden Rhombus is a geometric object of Sacred Geometry.  This is because the width to length is in the Golden Ratio – Phi.  This particular object is made up of 222 equal faces that are the Golden Rhombus.  The object has 444 edges.

Since I have previously discovered the Wizardgynoiderene and the Rhombic Gynoidahedron, I am naming this object the Fractal Rhombic Triagynoidahedron.  The object is now on display on my “Wizard” sim in http://inworldz.com .

222 equal faces, 444 edges.

Happy Solstice to all my Peeps in the Metaverse!

This Lotus-like flower pattern was found inside the E8 Polytope.  I have colored it here with the seven colors of the rainbow, beginning with red at the center and ending with violet on the edges.

The same seven colors of the rainbow are used to color the seven chakras.

New Star of Diablo III is WIZARD!

Posted in Cleverness with tags , , , on February 28, 2009 by Wizzy

I used to be a Diablo and Diablo II player.  I was a maniac about it.  Then World of Warcraft came out and everyone forgot about Diablo…

Well, Blizzard has been working on Diablo III and the new star character is… Wizard!

Ta da!

Diablo III's Wizard!
