In one of the many SL RP SIMS, a coveted warrior gets engaged.   Gradually the warrior´s reputation begins to get tarnished through the  doubts that the infamous and rejected women who came before her install on the bride to be´s mind.

At first she is unaware of being manipulated into rejecting her groom so that others can step in.   But, ultimately she arrives at the unexpected and undesirable reaction of questioning her sources.  After all these are her ¨friends¨, right ? … WRONG !    You see, as  a close relative of the groom I know about the female individuals who had tried to get permanently into his pixels pants to no avail.

Think for Yourself.  Don´t ever become and empty carcass.  However Beautiful!

Think for Yourself. Don´t ever become and empty carcass. However Beautiful!

¨Sapere Aude¨= Dare to be Wise, as stated by the great Philosopher and personal favorite, Immanuel Kant in his essay ¨What is Enlightenment¨.     His words are pure glory to my ears and they are soothing to my heart.  They make me feel respected and honored.  Most importantly being revered and deeply admired by me served the purpose of having a reliable source give, the  young adult me,  permisson to think for myself when I read him early on in my adolescent life:

¨Laziness and cowardice are the reasons why such a large part of mankind gladly remain minors all their lives, long after nature has freed them from external guidance. They are the reasons why it is so easy for others to set themselves up as guardians. It is so comfortable to be a minor. If I have a book that thinks for me, a pastor who acts as my conscience, a physician who prescribes my diet, and so on–then I have no need to exert myself. I have no need to think, if only I can pay; others will take care of that disagreeable business for me. Those guardians who have kindly taken supervision upon themselves see to it that the overwhelming majority of mankind–among them the entire fair sex–should consider the step to maturity, not only as hard, but as extremely dangerous. First, these guardians make their domestic cattle stupid and carefully prevent the docile creatures from taking a single step without the leading-strings to which they have fastened them. Then they show them the danger that would threaten them if they should try to walk by themselves. Now this danger is really not very great; after stumbling a few times they would, at last, learn to walk. However, examples of such failures intimidate and generally discourage all further attempts.

Thus it is very difficult for the individual to work himself out of the nonage which has become almost second nature to him. He has even grown to like it, and is at first really incapable of using his own understanding because he has never been permitted to try it. Dogmas and formulas, these mechanical tools designed for reasonable use–or rather abuse–of his natural gifts, are the fetters of an everlasting nonage. The man who casts them off would make an uncertain leap over the narrowest ditch, because he is not used to such free movement. That is why there are only a few men who walk firmly, and who have emerged from nonage by cultivating their own minds.

Dare to think by yourself.  Gather evidence.  Don´t take what others tell you at face value.  Dare to be wise.  Question your leaders, your Government.  Question religion.  Question the status quo.   Question authority and don´t believe anything simply because I say so.

The Brain is a wonderful and ever fashionable accessory that combines with all your clothing.    Use it with pride I say !

My sabbatical month is over and my first post for the year is already overdue. It´s time to stop thinking and pondering and start taking action in both my lives. For some days already I´ve begun to feel this overwhelming need to clean up (inventory in SL, belongings in RL), of editing  and simplifying.

Perhaps this is one of the reasons I´m currently in love with the Mirte Structural Dress by Faenzo. I had actually tried to get it so many times already but Collaborator 88, where it is available, is such a success that the SIM is almost always full. Eventually after many, many tries and several days, I was able to get in and snatch it.

The reason why I love it, is of course its minimalist and sensual simplicity which is exactly what I am currently in the mood for and not just for Fashion. The dress comes in two types of textures:  Leather (as worn) or cotton for a lot less visual noise.

Last but not least, the dress reminds me of one I happen to own in RL with a few less bare differences.  It´s made of cotton and all perfect to keep you feminine in all your coolness. The RL dress reminds me of good times, Sunday afternoons after a beach trip and ice cream cones.    To balance the bare feel of the SL dress I paired it with one of the best boots of the season: The Ikela by HH Hucci.

I hope to start decluttering my life and my surroundings tomorrow and I truly hope that this act will bring me greater clarity of mind and spiritual awareness.  I will pull out my cotton dress and wear it afterwards and I will bask in the summer sun*  eating an ice cream.
