One day last week I woke up from one of the strangest dreams I've had in some time & I'm still rather bemused by my subconscious.
I've forgotten most of the fine detail but from what I remember it was seen from a first-person perspective as somebody walked around what appeared to
be a generic city scape which didn't correspond to a particular location as I didn't recognise anything. Whether the perspective was that of a person
or a camera I'm not entirely sure. Whoever it was had conversations with various people, the content of most of the conversations is beyond my
What did stand out, and was therefore the part I remember most, was a conversation with what fictional TV shows & films present as a generic
government agent: someone in a dark suit & black shades who was seated with a young-ish boy, estimated age 12-15, sat next to him. Amusingly enough he
introduced himself by saying, "I'm a government agent."
Then he proceeded to demonstrate how he had complete control over the mind of the young boy, however in typical dream fashion he never said why the
need for control was warranted. The dream perspective person asked how this control was achieved and the agent's explanation was thus:
The young boy spoke in sentences which consisted of a maximum of ten words, the reason behind this was it limited his self-expression to a very high
degree and was thus an essential part of his 'programming'. By placing such strict limits on his self-expression those same limits are imposed upon
his imagination. The strict limiting of his imagination is the means through which mind control is achieved.
Reading that back I can't help thinking that it sounds like something my subconscious has pulled from its backside, to coin a phrase. Am I right in
thinking that or is this theory plausible in some way?
