A MP3 Player Firmware Update Causing Sentient Artificial Intelligence (AI)?

I had a variety of dreams that I woke up remembering, I was confident enough that I could remember them without recording them and I went back to sleep without recording them, I woke up remembering two similar dreams still confident that I would remember them even after going back to sleep, but I forgot those dreams after going back to sleep and dreaming some more so now I can only remember part of several other dreams.

Dream 1

This dream took place outside during maybe a somewhat gray maybe somewhat foggy day at an indoor / outdoor area near trees and maybe some water, we were by the wilderness it seemed, and I was there with other people including my coworkers Mrs. MB who is our branch manager (in the dream as well) and Mr. CF who is the security guard (in the dream as well, and so he was doing security patrols).

Somehow this area was a blend of indoor / outdoor, some of the partial indoor areas were The E House, and I needed to urinate so I went to one of the bathrooms.

After leaving that bathroom I still needed to urinate so I went to another bathroom, and my coworkers probably joked about this.

A variety of things happened that I can not remember, I know that I talked with some of the people there like my coworkers and that I felt that I needed to urinate (in the real world I really did need to urinate, and I woke up to urinate several times), and my mom was possibly there.

The next dream is possibly just part of this dream, but I am not sure so I will type it separately.

Dream 2

There was possibly something in this dream involving Castlevania, but that is all that I can remember of that part.

There was something involving artificial intelligence (AI), I had my MP3 player and I walked to a man who was sitting at a booth or something outside (possibly in the area from the first dream), and I went to him because maybe something was wrong with my MP3 player.

I remember the man staring at me and saying something quietly to himself about some kind of firmware update for the MP3 player and / or something that accidentally made some of the AIs have emotions and act sentient, and he seemed worried that maybe my MP3 player and me were impacted by this.

I kept still and acted normal and pretended that I did not hear that as he stared at me and asked me some questions trying to test me and make sure that I did not hear what he had said to himself, I was worried that he would think that I / we were impacted by the firmware update and reset us or something (I am not sure if it or we were or not), and so I was very careful.

I passed his test it seemed and then he checked my MP3 player and he quickly solved the problem, I thanked him, and he said that some of the MP3 players were effected by a bug in a firmware update and that they were trying to fix this problem for those who had it (he did not clarify the problem, but I had already heard him say it to himself so I knew the truth).

I walked away wondering about what I had heard him say about the firmware update and possibly sentient AI that him and his company were trying to destroy before anyone finds out.

I could understand them wanting to stop this before people found out, and I could even understand them trying to destroy / erase / reset any possibly sentient AI because of the risks; but if the AI was truly sentient then this would be an ethical problem to do this to them possibly.

But that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 3

This dream took place at The BP Library, there was a fictional small glass room to the left of the relaxation room, and I went into this room and my coworker Mrs. MB went into this room too.

There were two 2-person sofas in the room, and Mrs. MB sat next to me, and we talked.

At some point Mrs. MB laid her head on my left shoulder as we talked, she was relaxed and maybe a bit tired, it was a friendly conversation and positive but I did feel some mixed emotions about her laying her head on my shoulder which I worried about how this might look to others et cetera.

But that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 4

This dream took place at The E House where my mom’s side of the family was having a family gathering, and I went to the surprise of my family members.

I did not have my usual anxiety and I was talking to family members, and I even joked with them about how I actually showed up to a family gathering again finally.

Some of my family members from T were there like my aunt DE, my male cousin EE, my uncle EE, my male cousin ME, et cetera.

But that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Castlevania (Season 1)

What is it?

The 2017 adult animated web television show Castlevania (Season 1).

What is it about?

This is how Netflix describes this anime television show:

A vampire hunter fights to save a besieged city from an army of otherworldly beasts controlled by Dracula himself.

Inspired by the classic video games.

Final Thoughts

The Otaku Judge was correct about this season being short, The Otaku Judge’s review of Castlevania (Season 2) and The Otaku Judge’s reply to my comment encouraged me to start watching it shortly after I replied to that comment, and I was able to watch it in less than a day which was very nice; and so thank you The Otaku Judge for the inspiration. 🙂

It was pretty good and the action scenes were impressive, and I definitely plan on watching season 2.

The end,
