Valery (Valeri) & The Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Westworld | Season 3 – Date Announce | 2020 (HBO)

This dream was inspired by me watching episode 3 (The Absence Of Field) of the TV show Westworld (Season 3) before going to sleep.

Westworld: Creating Westworld’s Reality – Behind the Scenes of Season 3 Episode 3 | HBO

This dream involved a Rehoboam-like system/technology called Valery or Valeri that seemed to be an advanced artificial intelligence (AI) that people could connect to using maybe an implant and/or external device.

The Sovereign Blows Up A City?

I had more dreams and there was more to this dream, but I did not record them so now I barely remember part of the end of my last dream.

This dream probably started in a city inside a building that was next to a body of water near it and below it, and I was inside this building with various people including: Grace Randolph, at least one man and one woman with light-color skin, maybe some of my family, and some other people.

Harlan Ellison was a little dismissive of this short story that you’ve might only heard of because you saw it on a Steam summer sale, but at the time of its publication (1967) its ideas about the possibility of “evil AI,” as well as the possible degeneracy of humanity, were shocking and unexpected, and it set the stage for the wave of sci-fi we’ll talk about next season: New Wave!
