I had a dream once that really freaked me out. I woke up in a different place.
Everything was clean and minimalist in style. I was sitting against a wall with my head was in some sort of machine. There was no port in the back of
my head like in The Matrix or anything like that just a well fitting skullcap with a dense mesh of electrodes (like millions, each about a millimeter
I got out of the special little chair I was in and almost immediately, the panel next to me turned on. It was displaying news and what looked like
stock feeds. The display startled me at first but then I took in my surroundings. The floor looked like light toned wood but was fake and the walls
seemed to be made of a plastic that was subtly luminescent (more so at the top and bottom of the walls than at eye level.) I wandered around for a few
minutes and even remember looking down and seeing my bare feet which is something I hear is rare in a dream.
Eventually, I made my way to a door with a special handle. When I wrapped my hand around the handle, I heard a little click and the door swung open
easily. Outside the door was a walkway about six feet wide and a railing. I approached the railing slowly because I didn't know what to expect.
This is when I started to feel panic in the dream.
I could see that was about halfway up a pyramidal building with terraces and walkways for each floor. The pyramids were about 30 stories high. About
10 stories off the ground below ran monorails (each rail had a different color) and below them were four or five levels of highway (also
Just then, a person approached me on the walkway.
"Hey Joe!" the man called out from about 15 feet away. My name isn't Joe so I didn't respond but the man was looking directly at me as he
"Joe, you ignoring me?" He was standing so close now that he had almost stopped walking completely.
"Uh, no no." I said while searching my mind in vain for some memory of this person standing before me.
"You OK? How was work?" he said.
"Work?" I was failing in my attempt to seem like I belonged and I could see it in his eyes.
"Yeah, work. Are you sure that you're ok. I mean you're almost acting like you had a remergence or something." The man let out a nervous laugh at
first. Then he looks in my eyes for some sign of recognition. There was none. "You are. Aren't you? My God." The man's eyes grew two sizes and he
turned and ran off.
By now, I was in full WTF mode and I turned around and went back inside trying to find some normalcy. After a minute, there was a heavy knocking at
the door. The man on the other side said "This is Psi (I think maybe Cy, or Sci, or Sigh..I have no clue) open up." I just stood there with my heart
pounding - I didn't know what to do.
"Open the door, NOW Sir." The man on the other side of the door did his best impersonation of someone with authority.
There was only one thing I could think to do. So I sat back down in the chair from which I awoke as the knocking outside continued to grow louder and
the pleas more desperate. As I pulled the electrode-laden skullcap over my head, something quite remarkable happened.
I woke up - covered in sweat.
