Receiving a message about a bottle is something totally different than receiving a message in a bottle. One should be extremely careful if he/she bothers to response. Messages about bottles are usually tricky since they don´t use a liquid to transport themselves, but they refer to a liquid substance, a fluid, meaning a substance that flows and deforms. Especially when that substance contains alcohol, the danger to slip between literal and metaphorical meanings grows. In short, be careful of your steps.

Day 3. Sea Star Wasting Syndrome: a possible treatment
Sea Star Wasting Syndrome Map: Last updated 2015-10-07
“We do not know what is causing Sea Star Wasting Syndrome, and the cause may be different in different regions. The map below includes information from our regular intertidal monitoring surveys as well as information from logs submitted by other researchers, divers, and the general public.” (Source: http://data.piscoweb.org/marine1/seastardisease.html)
“The first photograph in the below series of a sea star with wasting syndrome was taking on June 27th, 2014 on Guemes Island, Washington. The following picture was taken a day later, and the last picture, the day after that. These sequential photographs of a single individual demonstrate how quickly the disease can progress and the extent of damage that can be done in only three days.”

Starfish with SSWS are mainly found along the coast of North Pacific Ocean, from San Diego to the Gulf of Alaska. The reasons they exhibit the syndrome may be connected to some particular substances in the seawater of the Pacific that are shown highly increasing in the measurements of the last decade. More specifically, if the starfish could be redirected approx. 2,200 miles west, they would end up in the ideal climate and water quality for their species.
Wish Lake, West Cook, MN 55604, USA
A huge research and experimental operation is taking place for the moment including the transportation of the newborns of the subspecies of Taurids inside the Wish Lake and see how they react to the change and if SSWS appears. Starfish as any other life form defines and redefines itself according to its surroundings. A team of experts specialized in environmental shifts and scientists trained for this particular purpose, will guide them directly to the lakesides, a switching practice that will automatically turn every starfish into a starwish.
Star Rain September to December 2015:
Active: September 10–November 20; Maximum: October 10 (λ⊙ = 197◦); ZHR = 5; Radiant: α = 32◦, δ = +09◦; Radiant drift: see Table 6;
V∞ =27km/s;r =2.3;
TFC: Choose fields on the ecliptic and ∼ 10◦ E or W of the radiant (β > 40◦ S).
Day 4. Home breeze
Location: Wind Tunnel Toni Areal
Experiment: home simulation
Method: Bringing the inside out and vice versa
The open space surrounded by the Wind Tunnel simulates a home situation and the Tunnel itself becomes a balcony where the laundry is drying and the tea is served in a slight air breeze.
Nostalgia is an illness with no cure, a contagious one. Nostalgia for home, for the mother, the mother-land, for the mother-lover. Through the wind tunnel visitors of the “home breeze” can travel to a past that never existed, to a future that will exist only if we specify it on our way there.

Travel agency of the impossible
“I feel no need to move. All the intensities that I have are immobile intensities. Intensities distribute themselves in space or in other systems that aren’t necessarily in exterior spaces. I can assure you that when I read a book that I admire, that I find beautiful, or when I hear music that I consider beautiful, I really get the feeling of passing into such states… Never could traveling inspire such emotions. So, why would I go seek emotions that don’t suit me very well, since I have more beautiful ones for myself in immobile systems, like music,
like philosophy? There is a geo-music, a geo- philosophy, I mean, they are profound countries, and these are more my countries, yes?
Parnet: Your foreign lands.
Deleuze: My very own foreign lands that I don’t find by traveling.”
