Strange Dreams
Last night, I dreamed a dialogue between two characters in the Journal Entries. They were discussing Higher Order Theories of Consciousness. Not only that, but one of them was asserting that someone was responsible for the human capacity for higher order thought, and that someone was still imprisoned somewhere in our solar system in a hellish existence, and they had to go rescue him.

I also dreamed I was Jay Lake.

I missed his birthday party yesterday, so this was my brain's consolation prize. Except Jay/I was the proprietor of a sad convenience store, one of those drab places with dirty white walls and sparsely populated shelves. The power went out, and Jay/I had implants all over my chest cavity, like Tony Stark's only many of them. One had a flashlight, and I was using it to try to figure out how to get the power back on.

Very strange.

Current Mood: amused amused

Long time reader, first time poster

Omg! You should write a new journal entry, based on that dream. Discussion, rescue and all.

Re: Long time reader, first time poster

No, because I find the plot offensive. I'm repeatedly offended by notions that we needed help to become human in all its variations: religion, ancient aliens, the whole gamut. In fact, as I worked it out, I'm going to invert the theme: somewhere trapped in the solar system is a lost ancient visitor condemned to stay here because it adopted something its peers rejected as dangerous and wasteful: human consciousness.
