Westworld (Film)

What is it?

The 1973 American science fiction western thriller film Westworld.

What is it about?

This is how Metacritic describes this movie:

For $1,000 a day, vacationers can indulge whims at the theme park called Westworld.

They can bust up a bar or bust out of jail, drop in on a brothel or get the drop on a gunslinger.

It’s all safe: the park’s lifelike androids are programmed never to harm the customers. But not all droids are getting with the program.

[Warner Bros.]

Final Thoughts

My brother GC and I watched this movie earlier this year I think, the new Westworld television show is better, but this movie was not bad for an older movie.

A Smart Building? | Human-Looking Robots In A Building?

I somehow managed to barely remember part of several dreams, even thought I woke up & went back to sleep without recording my dreams or thinking about them much, and I got caught in a quicksand-like sleeping & waking up cycle where I had more dreams, semi-daydreams, et cetera while also forgetting parts of some of my other dreams.

Dream 1

One dream involved me going to my grandfather’s house, and I got all of his trash & I took it out by the road for trash pickup day; but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

Another dream involved a tall thin futuristic/modern multi-story building in a field during the day in a fictional area, I was outside of the building, and at some point younger versions of my brothers TD & KD were there with me.

I think that the building was a smart building with a program / artificial intelligence (AI) that ran the building, and it had a female voice; and the building talked with us as we waited outside the building, and it taught us things.

At some point we went inside the building and maybe the building could project itself as a hologram of a woman, and it continued to talk with us & teach us things; and it let my brothers TD & KD play games around the building.

The building was very smart and even philosophical to my surprise, I remember talking about a variety of topics with the building, and I learned a variety of things; but I can not remember most of the dream unfortunately but I know that my brothers were having fun & it was nice seeing them as kids again back when we actually treated each other like brothers.

Dream 3

Another dream involved me walking outside another multi-story building during the day, when a group of security guards wearing body armor with assault rifles asked me if I wanted a job helping them do security at this building, and I said yes; and they gave me some body armor, and an assault rifle.

There was a situation maybe in the building and so I followed them into the building, and eventually all the other security guards died or disappeared (but I can not remember if we had fought anything or not); and I came across a person in the building, and I tried to protect this person as we sneaked through the building trying to figure out what was going on & what happened to the other security guards & trying to survive.

At some point on an upper floor I started to see what seemed to be people when you looked at them, but to me they seemed to be robots who looked like people; and they moved, looked, acted robotic.

I hid with the person who I was protecting as we watched these human-looking robots walking around, and at some point we started sneaking around; but then we tried to act robotic as well because we could no longer sneak around without being seen, and some of the human-looking robots would stare at us briefly like they suspected that we were human.

Their stares were freaky/scary like on the film Inception when projections sense another dreamer, so I would look away & act like them, and then they would stop staring at us & continue what they were doing.

I wondered what were all these human-like robots doing in the building pretending to be human, and I assumed that they had killed the other security guards; and I felt that something very strange was going on that I wanted to figure out, but I also had to worry about surviving & protecting the person with me but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 4

I had another dream that took place during the day where a woman with glasses, who reminded me of the woman who works at OW with glasses except she had whitish colored skin & she had an American English accent, was teaching me & maybe several other people something; but I can not remember what she was teaching us, but she was very nice like the building had been to my brothers & I.

At some point we finished our lesson I guess and I walked away from the house or building or whatever, and two men from Eastside gave me a ride home; but we went to CK to get something to eat/drink, and I paid for most of it.

I only got a drink, one of the men got a food plate & drink, and the other man got one food item & one drink; but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

I had more dreams but I can not remember them at this time, but if I do remember them later I will try to type them here.

The Android Experiment

Source: Wikipedia

Last night I barely remember some of the end of my last dream, which took place during the day, at a fictional modern building far away from any fictional city; I think that this area or an area similar to it has been in a few of my past dreams.

I think that I was with a woman who probably was like a fake Helen Magnus from the TV show Sanctuary, and I think that another woman was with us; and I think that we drove to the fictional modern building for some unknown reason.

I remember that we went inside of the building which had a main lobby, several stairways, and the building had several floors; and I think that there was a small library in the building & that the building had a variety of uses/types of areas.

I can not remember what happened during this time, but at some point we were running from what I think was an experimental android (I am not sure what it was but this is what I think that it was) that was sent by an unknown shadow/secret group to get some information/knowledge and/or a special item from us; this android looked human and it looked like a man, and it might have looked like me or it looked like someone else.

The reason that I am confused by its appearance, is because the android had some of my memories/thoughts/knowledge/et cetera, somehow members of the shadow/secret group and/or the android had somehow copied some of my brain; but I am not sure when or how they did that or how much of my brain did they copy to the android.

I remember thinking that the android did not need food, water, sleep, and it never gets tired; but it did have a power source that could run out of power if it was not re-charged or replaced, and I think that the power source was located in its chest area but I am not sure.

The android used some of my memories to find us & to trap us, and the android was trying to capture us so that it could copy all of our brains to help it find something and/or someone and/or to complete its mission and/or that was part of the experiment; but I am not sure if we would die or not after the brain copying process or how it would copy our brains, because we were not going to let it copy our brains.

To me the android seemed to want to copy the rest of my brain maybe, but its main target was the woman who reminded me of Helen Magnus, I remember thinking that she had many years of knowledge that the android & shadow/secret group wanted to help them, since she was hundreds of years old; and she had knowledge on the item(s) and/or person/people who they were looking for.

The android had us trapped in the building and it kept preventing us from escaping by blocking off each exit that we tried to use, and so we went around the building in circles running from the android for a long time; which was very annoying since the android seemed to be using some of my memories to help predict our movements.

After a while we got tired of running and I was tired of the android using my memories, and I was afraid since I was not sure how many of my memories had the android been given; and so we started to make a plan to deal with the android.

I hoped that we could keep running until the android ran out of power, but I did not think that would happen any time soon, and so I suggested that I deal with the android alone so that the others could escape; especially the woman who reminded me of Helen Magnus, since the knowledge in her brain was too valuable to let them copy it.

The two women did not want me to stay alone since I would probably die & have my entire brain copied by the android, but I convinced them that we could split up to confuse the android & I would make the android focus its attention on me while the woman who reminded me of Helen Magnus would escape in the automobile & the other woman could help me continue to run around the building in circles to distract the android & hopefully make it run out of power eventually if she wanted to.

We split up and I got the android to focus its attention on me by talking & taunting it, and I really was angry that the android had some of my memories & so this was personal/serious to me; and I wanted to destroy the android once it lost enough power, which would hopefully weaken it enough to be destroyed.

The woman who reminded me of Helen Magnus escaped in the automobile, but I am not sure if the other woman went with her or not, I just remember running around talking & taunting the android; hoping to get my chance to destroy it.

I still can not remember if the android looked like me or not, since my feelings about it having some of my memories made me feel that it was part me, and so the android is somewhat associated with me in my memory because of this dream.

I remember that I did not want this android to copy all of my brain & use that to harm other people & the World, and so I was willing to die to stop it if necessary; but I tried to focus on making it waste its power so that I could destroy it without dying. 😉

This entire thing seemed to be a big conspiracy and experiment by the shadow/secret group who seemed to have a large network of compartmentalized groups around the World who were taking orders from an unknown source; but I woke up.
