the name of the dream

computer in charge


to watch films on the t.v. i put the video files onto a usb after downloading them from the internet


occasionally, there would be weeks and months between changing one batch of films for the next


waiting for the thumbnails of the films to show on the t.v. screen took longer and longer and every so often the t.v. went into "lockdown (waiting-for the-circle-chasing-itself to stop) ) " which made every film on the usb inaccessible and that meant the only way to watch the films on the usb was to do a factory reset on the t.v.


it took forever to do a t.v. reset so i decided to reformat the usb instead


that did the trick and it only took seconds to do


the next time the t.v./usb interaction got sluggish i put the usb into the computer to re-format it


instead of being given the options for re-formatting the usb the computer generated a black-on-white message which read "do not re-format"


"ah well", i thought, "the computer knows what's best" and didn't override the computer's suggestion


notes 1


there's a thought-provoking association between awake-time experiences and dream-time experiences taking place


in this dream, there is an intricate weaving of present-time and the other time-tense-memories taking place


the t.v. not loading, the t.v. going into "lockdown" and the use of usb sticks are present-time memories but reformatting the usb and the pop-up message are of another time-tense


the ever-elaborating fusion between the dream-time conscious and awake-time conscious is taking place


we have yet to incorporate love-time (see heaven) into the formulation!
