Thinking About The Ender’s Game Series And Getting Attacked In Nuka-World

Source: Wikipedia

I had several dreams last night but I went back to sleep several times without voice recording them, and so now I can only barely remember part of several dreams.

Dream 1

All that I can remember of this dream is that it involved thoughts, daydreams, and more about things related to Ender’s Game and Speaker For The Dead and First Meetings In The Enderverse but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

All that I can remember of this dream is that it took place during the day in a video game-like dream world in what seemed to be the Nuka-World amusement park from the video game DLC Fallout 4: Nuka-World.

I was there walking out of the entrance of one of the theme parks on my way to a field when I was attacked by either a robot or a raider, I saw a creature or robot or raiders around the corner of the entrance by the wall, and so I led my attacker there and my attacker started fighting the creature or robot or raiders instead.

I then made my way toward the field while they fought, and I saw and heard others fighting in the distance on my right side but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 3

All that I can remember of this dream is that one of my brothers (maybe my brother GC) and I were walking through one or more buildings, we probably started outside, and at some point we were in a small room that looked like an employees-only area and that seemed Walmart-like but there were other customers there looking around as well and there were a few female employees with light-color skin wearing blue Walmart-like vests.

This room was along a hallway that did not look like it was part of a Walmart or a store at all, there were a few barely stocked shelves in the room, and the back shelf was empty except for a computer in the middle of the shelf.

I think that there was a problem with the computer and the employees were trying to figure it out, and so I probably stopped to help them before continuing on through the building.

Before I left the room there was a situation that I can not remember that involved a female customer with light-color skin with maybe yellow hair who had several young children, there was some kind of disturbance or drama that happened between the woman and the employees, but I can not remember the details.

Eventually I reached a part of the building or a building where the inside looked like The BP Library where I work as a shelver, and I remember walking to the front desk where some of my coworkers like Mr. CF and Mrs. T and Mrs. DT et cetera were standing around talking.

I remember hearing them talking about some drama that happened between a female patron and some of my coworkers, they said that this patron had a history of causing problems, and what they described sounded like the woman who caused a scene in the room earlier so I asked them about this female patron.

What they described sounded like the situation that I saw earlier, I told them what I saw, and they said that sounded like the woman and like the situation that they were talking about.

This confused me because that room did not look like it was part of The BP Library at all and I did not recognize the employees and they were dressed like Walmart employees, but I woke up.

Ender’s Game

I decided to make this post after Lost Truth mentioned it in one of her dream posts called Information Download? Dream Sharing? And Shifting Perception, and so thank you for the inspiration Lost Truth. 😉

What is it?

The 1985 military science fiction book Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card.

What is it about?

This is how Goodreads describe this book:

Andrew “Ender” Wiggin thinks he is playing computer simulated war games; he is, in fact, engaged in something far more desperate.

The result of genetic experimentation, Ender may be the military genius Earth desperately needs in a war against an alien enemy seeking to destroy all human life.

The only way to find out is to throw Ender into ever harsher training, to chip away and find the diamond inside, or destroy him utterly.

Ender Wiggin is six years old when it begins.

He will grow up fast.

But Ender is not the only result of the experiment.

The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway almost as long.

Ender’s two older siblings, Peter and Valentine, are every bit as unusual as he is, but in very different ways.

While Peter was too uncontrollably violent, Valentine very nearly lacks the capability for violence altogether.

Neither was found suitable for the military’s purpose.

But they are driven by their jealousy of Ender, and by their inbred drive for power.

Peter seeks to control the political process, to become a ruler.

Valentine’s abilities turn more toward the subtle control of the beliefs of commoner and elite alike, through powerfully convincing essays.

Hiding their youth and identities behind the anonymity of the computer networks, these two begin working together to shape the destiny of Earth-an Earth that has no future at all if their brother Ender fails.

Final Thoughts

I read this book many years ago after my former male classmate KW or CW recommended it, and maybe my female classmate CW recommended it as well.

I remember liking the book and I probably read it pretty fast so it probably was an interesting read.

I have a memory of reading some of this book during the day while in or near my dad’s automobile when maybe we were on a side job doing some yard work or something like that at a house / yard on maybe the street to the left of O Street where my former uncle DW lives.

Maybe one day I will watch the 2013 Ender’s Game movie.
