GeekSpeak subject for Saturday 20th August at noon SLT: How far can we bend Nature?


One of the newest tricks we humans can do is to change the DNA of plants, bacteria and animals.  Reprogrammed bacteria can do useful things for us.  Nitrogen fixing bacteria can be made to live in our crops so they don’t need nitrogen fertilizer.  Bacteria can be made that will eat plastic, perhaps. Plant or animal material can be made to grow into chairs or buildings.  Would you sit in a chair grown from tooth material?

We may be looking at a future that is grown, rather than manufactured.  What does this mean for us?  Will there be no metal machinery?  Can we grow a car?  Or ride on a reprogrammed cheetah?

Are there limits to the changes that can be made now that we can alter DNA? Or is the sky the limit?  Come and join us in GeekSpeak on Saturday at noon SLT.  Bring some test tubes and your fellow geeks!

GeekSpeak – Do we have a moral obligation to nature? Or to individual animals and plants? Join the discussion Saturday February 29th at 12pm SLT

Do we humans have an obligation to preserve all species?  Is it ok to let some species go extinct?  Do we have obligations to individuals or only to species?
Is it morally ok to take down an old, beautiful tree to build a factory?  If not, is that because we have a duty to the tree?  Or just a duty to people?  How about other plants in the same location?  Grass, for instance?

How do we decide which species or individuals we must save?  Age?  Rarity?  Place in the food chain?  Or simply its value for us?

If we have duties to trees, what about duties to mountains, lakes, rivers?  Are we free to do whatever we want, if it does not harm humans?

Bring your friends to discuss our unique place in nature.

Ricardo Avalira, owner of Clear Creek Nursery, is also a RL Nature Photographer and has just opened his Gallery right next to his nursery. He has been a photographer for over 20 years and has a unique way of capturing images of Nature.

He has brought these amazing images into Second Life to share with everyone. The frames he uses are unlike any other frames in Second Life. When you purchase one of his images and click on the photo, you get a menu whereby you can re-size the frame either smaller or larger. They can be re-sized small enough to fit on your coffee table or large enough to cover your whole wall without losing any clarity of the image. Even though his images are displayed at different sizes, the price for each one is the same.

Life can become so busy that we loose ourselves in the process of living. Ricardo’s vision in providing these images is to allow you to connect with Nature. His hope is that if you would allow the rest of the world to fall away while gazing at the image, this connection will happen.

He also provides a custom service whereby, if you send your favorite image to him, he will insert it in the frame. Since these frames come in different formats, he asks that you allow his discretion in choosing the perfect one for your image.

You can visit his Gallery here -

Announcing the Grand Opening of Clear Creek Nursery November 20th at 1pm slt.

The nursery covers 1/2 sim and is beautifully landscaped by Ricardo Avalira, the owner of Clear Creek Nursery. With a discerning eye to detail, Avalira wants his customers to experience the beauty intrinsic in his landscaping talent, and has opened a sim that showcases his talent for all SL community members to see.  This is an especially unique thing, because while many landscapers can conveniently show their clientele pictures of their work, Avalira brings his work directly to his customers, and encourages all to use his land as a place for spiritual growth and meditation.

From the landing point, you can join our group and pick up your FREE gift for group members. The best way to experience the nursery is to walk the pathways as they wind all around the nursery. You never know just what you’ll find around the next bend.

This nursery was created so that you can have a peaceful shopping experience. There’s a meditation gazebo by the pond where you can sit and enjoy the sounds of nature. encourage people to come by and just sit and relax. Customer service is important to us and we strive to respond to your needs as quickly as possible.

At Clear Creek Nursery you will find just about anything you need for landscaping your home, your business or your sim. We strive to keep everything as low prim as possible and at very reasonable prices. We also do custom work, so please don’t hesitate to ask.

The Jungle; a Place of Enchantment and Wonder

There is no reality in The Jungle, only enchantment and wonder. The design was laid out with no expense or prims spared in the building of this sim. Explore and you will find yourself in awe of your surroundings.

SPOTLIGHT FEATURE: Art by Nature Photography Exhibit by anibrm Jung currently on Display at West of Ireland (WOI) Art Gallery. –Lanai Jarrico Reporting…

     Second Life© has some of the most creative artists I have had the pleasure of meeting from all over the world, but no matter how many prims and pixals used to create masterpieces here, capturing the essence of real life and the beauty that can be found in the simplest of things, is a skilled art form created by those that can bring out the details in nature and the vibrant colors found in our real world.

Recently I was invited to West of Ireland’s Art Gallery and greeted by director of (WOI), Hiawatha Runningbear.  If you have never visited West of Ireland, I would recommend putting it on your SL Itinerary.  After some small talk, I headed into the gallery and was immediately drawn to every photograph in anibrm Jung’s Art by Nature Exhibit.  Looking at her photographs, one can only wonder where they were taken and what inspires her. Of course, anything can be an inspiration but for artists like her, it is something from within that draws them to certain things.  So, I gave her my card and asked for an interview.
