Dream Country

September 27, 2011

There is a frontier inside our heads, just as big as the one that could potentially be found inside a computer, as evidenced in TRON or The Matrix. And in fact, it may be much bigger. Dreams seem to be explored so much lately within movies and shows, such as FRINGE episode 319, in which Walter and Peter enter Olivia’s mind, with the help of some LSD and other assorted things in order to retrieve her consciousness. They are faced with an entire world within this mind in which to look for her. Just think if we could actually traverse the mind in such a manner, just what other sorts of astounding things will be available for us to explore. In Inception, Christopher Nolan pondered what it would be like to place and idea in someone’s head and convince them that they were the originators or that thought. Inception also presented the idea of how the passage of time differs while in the dream state, and that the deeper into a dream we are, the more distorted time seems to get. A whole lifetime can even be lived in a dream. I propose the idea, that maybe parallel universes, alternate realities, our other lives are lived during the dreaming, while our life is lived by our alternate selves in their dreams. Mind-blowing I know. Also tied into the idea of traversing a dream landscape, maybe we can learn how to travel between places through use of this limitless space inside each of us. After all, there is proof that a shared dream state can exist, so obviously it goes to show, that there is proof of other sorts of dream travel. But maybe I’m just crazy. All the same, as the Cheshire Cat says, “We’re all a little mad here.”
