It appears to be a philosophical account based on the idea of a simulated universe and a man as God but he lives in another REAL universe.
Nice philosophy but not a nice idea at all.
The god in this dream is a bit of an ass as he enslaves the people he has created in this universe except in fact he did not create them they are a
chimera created from real intelligence of people which he has harvested from his own universe and is then parasite upon them by using them as slaves
such as placing a mind of a person into his car.
But somewhere, somehow if computers can ever become powerful enough it also posits the question is someone out there doing exactly this.
It would not however be AI as it is real intelligence held in a simulation of a brain which is itself in a simulation of a body in a simulation of a
world in a simulation of a universe.
AI and real intelligence are very different thing's and in the moral of this tale while his real captive intelligences are limited by there nature
what if one of them created an AI inside the simulated universe which then realized what it's creator had not and in turn found a way to upload itself
into the real world?.
But since you have shared what I assume was a vivid dream the weirdest dream I had was back when I was a student studying electronic engineering and
Went to sleep one night a bit late and dreamed an extremely vivid dream, in this dream I was me but not on this planet, we were somewhere very far
away and an extremely long time ago, we lived in what you may call bungalow type houses that had large gardens' that would not look out of place in
Australia, New Zealand or many parts of the States and they were mostly build around people for people, we did not work or have industry as our
society had devolved over time into a more eco friendly society and though we appeared human we were in fact a very ancient race whom had once
explored much of the universe, at least that part of it that was near to our own planet and had encountered several other races in that time.
But having become a peaceful ancient society our ancient expansion and exploration was now long behind us and we had become a planetary culture more
interesting in the furtherment of our own personal lives as a part of the whole of our society, poverty, illness and social problem's had all long
since been cured in our society.
Yet we were now under occupation, a race of beings with pale almost grey skin, they looked similar to human's but also different with dark hair and
large dark eye's were occupying our planet, we did not know why they had invaded our world but we lived now under a curfew and could only leave our
home's for a limited time each day so our society had all but ceased to function as a result of this, further to this these being's appeared each and
every one of them Identical to one another like clones, they were some kind of soldiers and were searching for something as well as ransacking our
ancient archives for knowledge as while we had always been a peaceful people they were a militant race of conquerors.
We knew that they were intending to destroy our planet as a mean's of finalizing our extinction and so we in secret worked to construct a craft, one
person and it would be a suicide mission but this small craft would leave our atmosphere and send a directed signal that was faster than light but due
to the enemy's occupying and screening our world we could not send it form the surface, the craft had no wing's and was like a small cigar with a tiny
cockpit, almost the entirety was some kind of electromagnetic engine and the rest of it was for that one signal, the pilot knew he was not coming back
down and would die either in orbit or on re-entry.
This dream was then followed by another.
The same planet years had passed by and I was now an old man, I do not know if our attempt to make a cry for help had succeeded but we had worked in
these decades from ancient plan's and knowledge our people still had, the enemy had left our planet but had planted a device which was slowly making
it's way to our planet's core were it would then cause our planet to be destroyed.
The craft we had created long, wingless but had three pod's at there rear, they were shaped like elongated rounded triangle's and when seen from the
front were also like rounded triangles with no sharp edges and all the straight surfaced curved outward.
Very few window's and one porthole between the three pod's that were some kind of engine assembly no fire, no smoke but they could impel these craft
to near the speed of light somehow.
We knew that we could not save our world or our people but we took children, each ship had three adult's that would take turn's and near to the
engine assembly's on the inside were the time displacement slowed internal time the most were a set of sleeping bed's that would preserve our
As we left we looking back crying as our world seen through the lens of time moving much faster outside exploded from within and died then we slept,
from time to time one of the adult's would waken and take his place to check the ship for any damage or failures and perform maintenance and also to
check our course, many hundreds or even thousands of ship's had left our world at the same time in pod's of three ship's each pod of three headed in
separate direction's as we sought to find a safe world to settle from the world's we know of from our ancestral knowledge but of course our enemy had
also stolen that knowledge so it was a danger that they may already be there when we got there and it could have all been for nothing.
At least we reached a world, they were there already and they brought our ship's down, by this time I was an elderly tall thin man with white hair
and a long white bearded, I had been in my 20's or thirty's in human terms though we did live for thousands of years despite looking exactly human,
the clone aliens not knowing what to do with us at first and probably not knowing who we were since the death of our world and presumably our race had
occurred a very long time ago by this point in time but wanting information from us took us prisoner and we were placed into rudimentary bunker like
cell's, we felt when they killed the inhabitants of one of our three ship's as if we were all psychically connected and it was then that something
that should have awakened long ago to save our world finally woke up, being aware that the children now young teenagers (they had aged less as they
did not leave there time sleepers) under my care were going to be killed and with them the hope of our race I became angry, an alien emotion to me, my
eye's blazed red and my hand's and body took on a red shimmering aura, as I reached for the metal bars in the window that were inches thick they
melted and bent at my touch like candles in a flame, the sky of this world was greenish so unlike the bluish sky of our lost home world but it was as
if the entire spirit of our lost race was within us and we were not going to let our children die, I woke and only know but did not dream that we took
that world and wiped out the entire clone population with powers neither they nor we knew had been dormant within us all that time, perhaps it was
even the soul of our entire world enraged that this final seed of it's life was about to snuffed out by evil being's.
A dream is just a dream.
