IRAYO, ma oeya tsmuke. Later today, tomorrow morning your time, I will PM you some of what the Eagle, and his younger brother the Red Tailed Hawk have taught me about flying, and about living. The Red Tailed Hawk is my personal Tirealoang.

I want to be a Navi on Pandora purely for idealistic reasons. I have become so well acquainted with solitude that I wonder if I could live communally. I enjoy our cook outs and barbecues with our neighbors, but I am grateful for doors! I just want to be blue and live a primitive lifestyle. I wish I wasn't so dependant on automobiles for our monthly shopping excursions!

The na'vi are anything but isolated, so solitude seems like a strange reason to me.

I think what Ateyo means is separation from the "throw away, polluting, energy wasting, third world abusing" folks that make up a large part of American Society Today. Not of us that live out here in the toolies are like that, and we are all so exclusionary of outsiders, yet comfortable with each other, that we might be classified by a Na'vi as an " 'Olo".

I think I understand. The appeal is a smaller community.

Moco Loco, I guess you're also right about the Na'vi Not seeming isolated - we didn't really see any of them all alone in the movie - apart from a few occasions (like, Neytiri was alone when she was about to shoot Jake - & she would if it were not for the Atokirina sign. If she did shoot him, the movie would have been Very short! )

But I was thinking: if I know anything, there are "times of solitude" in native cultures. Like, one is supposed to go away into the wilderness to find one's own... song. Or name. Or something. (whatever 'wilderness' is in one's region: mountains, forest, prairie... a desert...). There were also story-tellers who would travel between the clans & bring them news & stories - they would spend some time on their own while travelling. Personally, i like to be alone in the forest, with the waterfall that we have here - or in a valley, nobody but birds, sun, plants, butterflies & wind around... Good company!

Solitude, the space or ability to just be alone with yourself, is something I think we all crave or desire at some points in our life. With solitude, particulairly when out in the country and with Nature, comes a quiet stillness, freedom from the stress and hectiness and expectations that we are bombarded with daily. It doesn't mean that we don't usually enjoy the company of others, or the need to be part of and involved or connected to community, rather its just we all need a break. I'm fortunate right now that i have been blessed with an extended opportunity to be experiencing both a community of a small town whose natural state of being is laid back and slower paced, plus lots of time to walk and commune with nature.

For me that same longing, for that in my dreams on Pandora, has embued me to find and create that here. I feel I am and always was already Na'vi my whole life, I just didn't know till now how to live it for 'real'.

"Its only 'here' that we lose perspective, out at the Cosmic Consciousness Level things get a lot clearer. For example, there is an actual star pattern that is traced in the shape of a Willow Tree, across the breadth of the Milky Way! And no wonder Indigenous peoples refer to the 'here after' as the Happy Hunting Grounds! Has it ever occured to anyone why the bioluminescence dots, on the Na'vi!"

^^^i guess so... right now I tend to like plants more than people with a Very few exceptions. Maybe I should go to a forest & "recharge" myself. It would be nice to have a queue!
