Cyber Octopus World!

Cyber Octopus Story

Cyber Octopus Story

I kid you not! This is a tremendously innovative exhibit by Kyota Spitteler that is as intriguing as it is fantastical. The history of her exhibit focuses on a Marine Life that, in a clever addition to the Dallier’s Hope ethos, was brought to The Rock with the first pioneers. The Octopus adapted to the Marine Life by developing a thick skin which retained it’s moisture in an unnatural environment, and then further evolved into a species called Mother Octopuses (Or is it Octopi?!) Whatever, I’ll just affectionately call the one on display “OctoMom!”

These evolved creatures developed a sort of kinship with their human counterparts on the New World, living in harmony with one another. Featuring a great Octomom with her tentacles outspead, you can even walk up to her and give her thoughtful smooch if you’re inclined!

Kyota has also created a great machinima about her SL6B exhibit which tells the story of their journey to the future! Make sure you stop and visit Cyber Octopus World today!

Stardate: 00019.53000 Zenroid Log
Location: Below the cloning station situated on a ground level area is the power station named The Paradox. I made the following observation; green amoebic cells running ground up through the pipes surrounding the power hub – these organic cells are the core power to the colony, they are able to conduct and retain electrons which are then converted into bio friendly fuel. The cells are naturally occurring deep within this asteroid and were discovered by Dr. Audrey Camembert who was part of Dalliers early landing team. She saw a green oozing glow seeping from the ground and after some testing the unique properties were first discovered then later enhanced to become the fuel. This glowing property was also used as a light source on the roads here on the rock. The one down side is it smells rather like burnt toast – which really is a minimal downside to this most amazing energy source.

Virtual Life in a Virtual World Exhibit

Virtual Life in a Virtual World

Virtual Life in a Virtual World

Welcome to the Post human World! That is the concept of the New Life, a phenomenal Exhibit on Dallier’s Hope by Jenne Dibou that explores the concepts of a future existence and the preservation of the past. It’s a bit like discovering a cave tucked away somewhere in a remote recesses of the shadows, someplace long forgotten. Guarded by “monks” who look like celestial representatives of some New Life Cult. you enter a through a tunnel and are met with mysterious artifacts of world gone well before you arrived.

Take a look at a frozen man; Bob: the last cryo-patient transhuman… and one thing you DON’T Want to miss is the the spinning object in the very center of the cave that invite YOU to join the New Life, where you are presented with Red Pill/Blue Pill scenario – Join the New Life, or resist! Bob himself may indeed not be dead, one must wonder if now he thrives a s a conscious digital entity, traversing the information superway and heading up the recruitment of New Life Members!

Meet Bob!

Furries and Tinies and Elves, Oh My!

If Second Life has a “killer app”, it’s not Windlight, or Voice, or a virtual economy, it is the communities that thrive within the confines of our shared digital world. Communities are what drives people to come back to a place, and can give someone a virtual home where otherwise their time inworld could just be a rather lonely experience.

Dalliers Hope is proud to have three of the oldest communities within Second Life represented here with us. Luskwoodelfcircleraglan

Please take a moment to go and discover and meet with these great tribes of Second Life!

I’ll let the pictures and links do the work, as your job here is to go and find out. Thank you for being here with us, Luskwood, ElfCircle and Raglan Shire!

But… What Does It Mean?

Dallier's Hope Flag

It’s been tossed around in various chat groups for the great Birthday extravaganza… speculated about… contemplated… and still, some don’t really even give a flying saucer! The Dallier’s Hope history is a ripe one indeed; So many only imagine what must have happened between the “then” and “now” that brought us here to where we are today. And those that were here then most certainly never anticipated what it would become… Much the same can be said of Second Life!

If you’ve been a Dallier’s Hope info junky (You know who you are, those of you who’ve found all the info signs giving back-story on installations and regions, wanted more on spacial location and indigenous species!!) or happened to trip across even a small portion of it, you know our glorious home was founded by visionary space adventurer Ghorman Dallier who planted the first flag in the dried soils of The Paradox!

But why was it hopeful? Was Earth in Peril? Is Dallier’s Hope in fact one Big virtual world of the future as has been suggested? Are we all living virtual lives, having downloaded ourselves into a simulated space environment while our physical selves remain in stasis elsewhere? Is Dallier’s Hope just one planet in an endless universe of Virtual Worlds then, and maybe while we’re the new generation space Colony, 300 light years to our North is a world of cotton candy clouds and peanut butter and chocolate waterfalls… maybe the world is what we make it, after all. Maybe it *can* be anything we want.

Maybe that is what Ghorman Dallier though so many, many years ago. Yes, it seems like it must have possibly run in the family.

Maybe you will figure out the History of our Ghorman Dallier… perhaps those who’ve asked may just need to look a bit closer. After all, we are on T Minus 6 days from… well, I think it’s best you decide. 😉

Here we all are!

After a very late night (that was in fact a very early morning in the end), and then a few hours sleep, we had a pretty flawless opening ceremony, and then the gates opened!

It was quite amazing to see the grid fill up, and yes it was/is laggy, but isn’t that the sign of popularity?

Well done all, and if you are here exhibiting give yourselves a pat on the back, and if you haven’t dropped by yet? What are you waiting for?

Vivianne O'Flynn

Vivianne O'Flynn

Meet Vivianne O’Flynn, the Official Baker of the SL6B birthday cake! Vivianne is a Second Life veteran born 9/13/2003, which makes her almost as old as Second Life itself! As the owner of the Second Life delicacy shop, Divivity, her prime work in SL has long been creating virtual delights for the taste buds! So, last year when she inquired about participating in the future, there was no doubt who to call when the time came for a chef!

SL6B Birthday Cake

SL6B Birthday Cake

The Cake region is more than just a big Cake! Vivianne and her building partner Div Epoch have gone to great lengths to make it a party unto itself! It’s a space full of little treasures, lots of goodies and small surprises in every nook and cranny. Content creators in Second Life have contributed to a futuristic loot bag where you can get some fun, festive and humorous things!

You might even find Vivianne there herself as she greets visitors and answers questions about the birthday cake which was inspired by the concept of a Rocket Ship surrounded by lush lights that illuminate the path beneath your feet with each step. It’s one of the Points Of Interests you won’t want to miss on your visit to Dallier’s Hope!
