Not only modayas but mentally sick also see these things in various shades, colours, shapes..........known as visual hallucinations.
Seethrough Jungi is fast losing touch with reality, time he went to see the Doctor and get some Prozac for his metal depression. Stop bringing everyone down with your metal depression.!!
I went to this place about 5 years ago when it was under going major renovation and had all the Scaff holding around it, nice to see the final finishing touches are being put to it now. I hope I get to visit it someday again.
When I last went there, what I did notice was how nice it felt to walk bare foot on the wet cool stone floors in the evening, one realises when one is walking on these polished stones, that have been naturally polished by thousands of pilgrims walking on them over the years, that they are a means of connecting with our Great Heritage of the past. One can only truly experience these things if they physically go there and bother to take your trainers or shoes off & walk around and connect with history. I felt quite humbled to have been allowed to walk around and be have been there.

I envy you walking bare foot and feeling the cool polished stones and getting connected to the heritage. So it was indeed great to walk bare feet but you won't have the previlage of doing that in England, your land of domicile, owing to the temperate weather and the 'local heritage'!
While you enjoy walking bare feet in SL, do you ever care to realise that there are millions in SL looking for a decent pair of footwear to walk along the dusty, rugged, snake infested lanes and roads?
It is always fun when you come from the West with pocket full of Sterling or Dollars and throw around and feeling 'wonderful' looking at the way the poor people live and even try to experience how they lead their primitive lives!
Walking bare foot on cool polished stones, shorts to ward off the tropical humidity and heat, perhaps a straw hat bought in Galle or Matara for 50 pence (and you did not get the balance), polarised sunglass to keep the UV rays away, sunscreen cream applied all over even making you look like the Aussie Aborigines, and then walk into an expensive hotel for a chilled larger (you even boast to the locals that SL beer is better than the English, German or Belgian beer)and then a good intimate body massage for walking in the cool polished stone for half an hour...ha...ha...we also have experienced similar fantacies Mr Joe Oblique but one difference is that we still don't dissociate the local people who are struggling to meet their daily needs.
Just getting connected to the past heritage by walking bare feet is a pleasant and an easy way to attain ecstasy but there are more collateral issues involved in this whole game.
Your kind of life, getting connected to the past heritage is all available for a small number, the ruling class, their stooges and crooks but not for the people of this country. They only 'enjoy' the heat of hot tar road or sand while walking bare feet but after they complete their task they neither get connected to the past glories or capable of going into a star class hotel for a chilled larger or a body massage!
This is why I was referring to 'hallucination' of some of the newly found rich. What is important for us today is to worry about today and tomorrow and not about yesterday.
So please don't call me 'depressed' my dear Joe Oblique and then how can I describe your 'elation' ? Is it due to Coca, Cannabis or Ecstasy?
May God help you souls. England or Sterling is not the end of our spiritual journey. Lord Buddha never meant that way.
