Emerging technologies, Guides

Skip: hi sweetie.

Kiri: hey, hey.

Skip: how ya doing hon?

Kiri: I can do that if you want. Hello greetings, I hear footsteps. 

Russ: ahh, it's working good. 

Kiri: cool. 

Russ: hi Kiri.

Kiri: hey, hey, hey kids what's happening?

Russ: hanging tough, how you doing?

Kiri: great, I'm doing good. 

Russ: excellent. 

Kiri: uh huh. So okay, we're all here tonight? So everybody say hi.

Russ: hi.

Skip: hi

Laura: greetings.

Kiri: ohhhh, you have a voice.

Laura: amazingly so.

Kiri: okay let me see, okay down to business. Okay, Tia's predictions about Kosovo, spot on as always. She's a smart cookie isn't she?

Skip: uh huh.

Kiri: okay now where were we? We have an agenda tonight as I'm doing the ring mistress, let me go and put my hot pants on and my waistcoat and my whip and my big hat. What's big hats called?

Russ: top hat

Kiri: top hat and I'll do the ring mistress thing. Tia used to wear that outfit so as I've been given the job and the duty and all the stuff.........

Russ: a little small for you isn't it?

Kiri: it looks better being small. What was up?

Russ: oh I just turned the volume up so it picks up better on the microphone. 

Kiri: ahhh. Okay now then, before I go off and do that and I'm joking, it's a Sirian joke........okay first of all let's go over a few interesting little points. As you know and you might have sensed it Russ, you had a visitation from our grandmother. 

Russ: uh-huh. 

Skip: oh great. 

Kiri: yeah she prowled around for a little while on the astral, she's checked out a few things and you might want to think about appeasing the devas as they're still a little upset and irked. Probably do something like maybe put out some fruit for them where the holy spot is. 

Russ: okay.

Kiri: maybe light a few candles for them.

Russ: like put a very large crystal out there?

Kiri: uh huh, what else, what else, what else, what else? Ummmmm....reasons that they are upset, my grandmother couldn't put it down to any one thing as their thought processes and she hasn't worked with earth devas in quite a long time so she said it was difficult to understand what they were complaining about and what they were upset about. I don't think it's so much the changes.....the vibrations around the locale. Also she brought up a few interesting points of the fact that the garden definitely needs some work but I'll leave that to Treebeard who talked to her more than I did on that side through our communication system.

Russ: excellent.

Kiri: and what is up with the domestic, short-haired, felix catus?

Russ: she's just hanging around.

Kiri: oh, she seems very affectionate. It's not the big one there. Okay.....

Russ: gossip dear?

Kiri: oh, gossip, gossip, gossip, I'm still working on that for the web page.

Russ: all right, I'm still waiting for it.

Kiri: okay I'll email it to you. 

Russ: okay, 

Kiri: the thing about your earth computers and I could really get on a thing here is that the speed and the processors are just so......we could plug in one of our computers, one of our small even my portable one, my what you call laptops?

Russ: no, just Leonedies' would be fine.

Kiri: no it Alex's.

Russ: oh it's Alex's?

Kiri: yes it's Alex's laptop. I mean that runs at about 2,000 MHz and that's old.

Russ: that's fine, I can work with old equipment.

Skip: sure we can work with ancient equipment darling,

Russ: look at Korton. 

(In charge of communications for Ashtar Command.)

Kiri: yes, Korton and his collection, we could go off on that. Okay, as I'm supposed to be the engineer, okay let's look at the upcoming technologies that are about to be released. You've been following Gateway 2000 I assume?

Russ: I've been following Windows 2000.

Kiri: well Gateway 2000 is a computer company correct?

Russ: well Gateway is. 

Skip: yes it is.

Kiri: yeah Gateway.

Russ: Gateway 2000 might be a new version of their computer line coming out, I don't know.

Kiri: well there have always been Gateway 2000's I think.

Russ: no.

Kiri: okay anyway, Gateway. They brought out a whole new line of computers and they're missing certain key elements such as........the plug-ins or the slots are there for them but the hardware that they're using is generic video hardware. Now as was stated about a year and a half ago, the meshing of the two technologies together with the graphic technology, it is still far superior than standard PC technology being the technology used by the silicon graphic workstations, and the Amigas (An early computer brand) and all those line of graphic animation computers is about to occur. My projected time is probably September when they start to release it or maybe early 2000. It's been rumored on your planet and we somehow mysteriously got a hold of one. A complete operating system and it is impressive. The animation capability is very impressive, the tightness and working capability. For example, you use megabytes of RAM for video....

Russ: uh-huh.

Kiri: is they achieve on half the amount what the standard PC uses. The standard has what four?

Russ: the standard's got usually 16.

Kiri: the standard PC has 16 megs of RAM? 

Russ: generally. 

Kiri: okay, these have standard four megs of video RAM with the one we got a hold of.

Russ: oh, video RAM yeah, they usually run around four right so they probably run around two.

Kiri: yeah it was about half and the graphic capability is that we bumped up a standard PC that we have to about 24 and it was just close. So this new technology coming out is much more efficient and much better. Also the software programming is much tighter and there's not the hesitations or hangups that you suffer from with the standard 24 MB of the video RAM.

Russ: now with the computer changes going on, we're understanding that the whole idea of laptops might be outdated soon where you are just using a cell phone as your computer, getting smaller and smarter.

Kiri: uh-huh, well they have palmtops as well.

Russ: right, actually introducing the whole cell phone technology in conjunction with that.

Kiri: yeah you have them and they're can hold them in the palm of your hand and use a pen to type with. 

Russ: right.

Kiri: from I've been told, a point on the screen. I haven't actually seen one. I know Mark has and I think you have?

Russ: yeah.

Kiri: yeah. Okay, do we any more questions on either coercion, computers, engineering and no Skip.......

(He likes to ask Kiri how the base's ship's propulsion systems works)

Skip: (Laughs)

Laura: oh man I got that thought right into my head like a gunshot. I heard that one on both of your ends dear.

Skip: I love to torment her though, I love to torment her.

Kiri: and spirituality. I've been getting more in contact with the religious side of being a Sirian.

Skip: okay one question darlin', you say you have been talking to your grandma.

Kiri: yeah.

Skip: all right, has the gentleman that supposed to be my guide come out of training yet? 

(The guide in question was a soul between lives Kiri and Karra's grandmother identified as as coming to guide Skip in the future.)

Kiri: he's doing part time at the moment. 

Skip: okay.

Kiri: so when you feel that nudge or that thought or that suggestion that pops into your mind, which I think you have from time to time recently right?

Skip: yeah I believe so.

Kiri: yeah that's him guiding......

Skip: okay.

Kiri: but he is still doing training at what would be the word? He would be doing on-the-job training for a few hours a week?

Skip: okay alright that's fine, that's fine. I was just curious okay?

Kiri: yeah from what my grandmother explained to me is that when you're in that state and you're doing the learning necessary to be a guide, part of it is that you spend a lot of times on the spiritual plane talking with other people that are guides, that are about to be guides, that have been guides. They all get together and they learn from each other and and then they look at individual situations and then they go off and do a little bit of work with the person that they're intended to be a guide for. Normally that there's another guide to help them, to guide them, so the guide's being guided.

Laura: sort of a mentor?

Kiri: yes.

Skip: on-the-job training......

Kiri: uh-huh.

Skip: on-the-job training.

Kiri: so that that they normally ease into it gently. In this case it's a little different due to the fact of that you don't have any until now......

Skip: yes.

Kiri: and the guiding is part of the process. Now there is another kind of guide which is a guide from love and they're normally things like spouses, parents, very close friends and they don't need the on-the-job training because they know the person intimately, mentally, sometimes physically and they do a lot of their own kind of guiding and pushing in the correct direction or the direction that they perceive is correct. Now the important thing to remember is that guides do it from their point of view and try to analyze what is best for you even though it is their point of view. 

Skip: yeah. 

Kiri: so that's something very important to understand is that when they're pushing you in that direction, they are guiding you to what they think is the best goal, not what is actually the best goal but what they perceive is the best goal for you. So therefore mistakes do happen, errors do happen and both parties learn. Part of the process and that is the learning process for both the guide and the individual being guided. 

Skip: okay.

Kiri: next question? 

Skip: thank you. 

Kiri: no more questions?

Russ: I have one. 

Kiri: okay.

Russ: it seems like we just got through with the Renaissance fair down here.....

Kiri: uh-huh.

Russ: celebrating one of Earth's Renaissance periods. It seems to me as if we're actually going through another Renaissance period now with the age of the computers coming in and the worldwide ability to speak to each other as they experienced then, what do you think on that?

Kiri: I'm watching with interest and I'm not going to make a commitment one way or another at this time due to the fact that I really don't know enough about the political and social, economic set up. I'd have to spend time talking with Tia to come up with a formulated answer. I'm batting 100 at the moment since I've been appointed ring mistress. 

Russ: good.

Kiri: it is a heavy mantle to wear. I haven't been goofy, I haven't flirted, I haven't hit on anybody.

Skip: you're doing great.

Kiri: hey Skip, you going to come up and maybe we can have some mischief?

Skip: if you teach me how to astral travel, I'll come on up.

Kiri: I'm not an astral traveler.

Skip: I know. (Laughs)

Laura: you're not that kind a girl

Skip: you're not that kind a girl

Kiri: hey I'm a wild girl but I am taken, somewhat. 

Skip: alright, okay darling.

Kiri: okay I'll be back.

Skip: okay love.
