"...Man"

"Ok, Hucka D., we have a busy week and a 1/2 ahead. Let's get to town on this one. Jasper 06. Is it finished?"

Hucka D.:

Might be. What we have in Jasper 05 and Jasper 06 is an animation, of course, the first where a cue of cars is diverted into Piers Gill, the giant gulch on the side of Lingmell Fell in England.

bb:

Ok, we had a bit of a glitch trying to run SL with all these Mozilla Firefox windows open, Hucka D., but I think we're alright now. Just can't run SL when creating these kind of posts. So... cues...

Hucka D.:

Then the 2nd cue of cars is allowed to pass up the road beyond the birds in the middle of the road and toward the blackbird now sitting in its center. What is the blackbird, then? And is it the same as the fox from Jasper 05?

bb:

The dingo and fox are obviously oppositioned between the 2 collages. This opposition has come up before in the 10x10, Hucka D., most immediately in Jasper 04, of course. But also, just in terms of animation sets, Newton 05 and Newton 06. That's what I wanted to take a picture of in the gallery/temple of SL, Hucka D., before the computer locked up.

Hucka D.:

Let's wing it instead with just images of Jasper 05 and Jasper 06 to work with. You can log in afterwards and take footnotes if you wish.

bb:

The dingo sits near the top of Pier's Gill in Jasper 06, at the same level, top to bottom, as the fox did in Jasper 05. I wanted it to be that way; I made the level part happen, not synchronicity.

Hucka D.:

Is the dingo, in turn, the same as the Ancient from Jasper 05? Both are orange colored, after all. Both are around or in Pier's Gill.

bb:

It's a logical assumption, I suppose. Fox is on same level as dingo, as blackbird is on same level as Ancient. Fox-blackbird, then, as dingo=Ancient. The Ancient here, again, is the smiling orange face atop the Santa body, walking up the side of Piers Gill, just as Santa did in Oblong 06.

Hucka D.:

This is Max.

bb:

Well... Max is the man holding the stick, technically, or more immediately. The stick is the walking stick, the willow diamond walking stick, also found in "Doorpick" (Jasper 02). Again it bends impossibly around something, in this case the handle of a coffee mug to pass to its front. It securely holds this mug in its vise like grip, Hucka D. Seemingly.

Hucka D.:

Klein bottle. Paradox. 4d conveyed as 3d. Impossible perspective. Just as all the Standing and Crouching Bakers are associated with, and, by conveyance, the walking stick now. You must observe when and how people/avatars view your art. They are an influence.

bb:

The actual Max of the collages holds the walking stick in his enlarged hand in Jasper 05, and then upright in his ordinary hand in Jasper 06. Like he's opening and closing a gate, almost.

Hucka D.:

He is opening and closing a gate. Gate of death.

bb:

The blackbird in the road is death? The road is the passage of life and death?

Hucka D.:

The fox is death. Jasper is death. The fox is the blackbird. Jasper the Rook/Raven/Crow. When the gate is open (stick up), then there is no barrier between the two. Life "naturally" passes into death, as the gatekeeper is suppose to allow. (pause)

bb:

Max, you mean?

Hucka D.:

But when the gate is closed and the impossible cup is lowered into the road, there is a diversion of the cue to another printer... I mean, another location. This would be Pier's Gill.

bb:

Pier's Gill is death, then.

Hucka D.:

The cue of cars seems to instead follow the Ancient up the gully, aiming for the top where the dingo stands in the next collage.

bb:

Maybe the gulch is now full of cars, and the dingo represents the new block. The flow of cars, the cue of cars, must be allowed into the death state again down the road, where the blackbird stands now. The blackbird is the more immediate form of death; the fox the more distant form.

Hucka D.:

It is very important to remember that this road is from The Jug. It allows passage into the Jug itself, which has been identified by Booker T. and his SID's 1st Oz interview as the 4d penetrating 3d. Klein bottle. Klein jug. Impossible passage.

bb:

The cars in the back of the road in Jasper 06: are they the ones that have already passed into death? They are with the blackbird now?

Hucka D.:

Yes, I think so. In Jasper 05, you have a condition of part of the cars being in life and part in death. The stick, again, represents the transition point between the two realms, life and death. It is the moment of death, perhaps.

bb:

I'm still unclear about the diversion into Piers Gill. Is this defeat of death?

Hucka D.:

Yes. [Delete name]. Gill's Pier. 2051.

bb:

Hucka D., I think the cars in the back of the road in Jasper 05 represent the ones that have reached Gill's Pier. They're white, like the von Trapp children in Jasper 04 under the Gill's Pier sign. I think its... backwards, then. Jasper 06 represents the ordinary passage of life into death, around the birds of death, leading to the blackbird. This is death. Blackbird is the opposite of whiteness, like in Carrcass-1, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Yes. Singing in the dead of night.

bb:

Jasper 05, then, would be the more unusual circumstance of escaping from death, or the, like you said, "natural" life-death cycle. This would be through Piers Gill. This would be through [delete name].

Hucka D.:

[Delete name] teaches us about the blackbird singing in the dead of night and allowing us to set it free. White-black. Race relations a bit, but...

bb:

It's also an unusual circumstance to have your hand enlarged like Max has in Jasper 05.

Hucka D.:

Hand is a key.

bb:

So the fox, which is the same as a blackbird, shows us a sneaky way around the normal life-death cycle. A sly way.

Hucka D.:

You must study. TILE.

Or the death state as already full. One *must* divert.

Hucka D.:

Go inworld now.

bb:

Thank you.
