I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream – The End Of The Apocalypse – Extra Sci Fi

Yesterday the YouTube channel Extra Credits had a video about a post-apocalyptic science fiction short story by Harlan Ellison called I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream, which is an amazing title, and the video was called I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream – The End Of The Apocalypse – Extra Sci Fi:

The title of that short story caught my attention immediately, there is something about it that I find pretty amazing and poetic and symbolic et cetera, and now I want to read this short story one day.

Audio Recordings Of John McCain

The end of this dream involved me working at a job, maybe a fictional library, and me and my coworkers each had our own separate areas in one large open area.

We each had a computer and each of our areas was like a boxed in cash register-like area like at a store combined with a hotel front desk / office, and to enter our areas was a short swing door.

At some point some of us were playing catch and / or American football, and then a fictional woman with light-color skin with maybe brown hair who was John McCain’s wife entered our building (she did not look or sound or act like Cindy McCain).

She somewhat reminded of The First Lady Of The United States Melania Trump in appearance and in the way that she spoke with a similar accent, it was not her, but she seemed to be like a combination of her and another woman.

John McCain’s fictional wife wanted some audio recordings of John McCain copied / saved to somewhere / something else that I can not remember.

She possibly wanted to know if it was possible to upload those audio recordings to an AI (artificial intelligence) and / or another person and / or a robot and / or an android or something like that so that, and so I assume that in a way she wanted to bring Mr. McCain back in a way (not literally, but something close) but I could be wrong.

One of my coworkers suggested saving some backups to several locations including online so that she could just listen to the audio recordings of Mr. McCain whenever, and then maybe upload them to an AI who could learn to mimic his voice et cetera and use that audio data to try to simulate Mr. McCain.

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

Poem Portraits – Your Dream Has Struck The Sound

The image above is a Poem Portrait that was created by using the word Dream as the base for an AI to create a poem with an image through the Poem Portraits website.

The poem that the AI created from the word Dream that I submitted was:

Your dream has struck the sound, My love is half-deceived, the sight of the frost.

I found out about this website thanks to a news article by The Verge called Google’s Latest AI Art Project Turns Your Face Into A ‘Poem Portrait’.

Google also has a post about this called Create A Personalized Poem, With The Help Of AI.

An Alien Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) / Spaceship With Artificial Intelligence (AI)?

I fell asleep on the living room couch and I had some dreams, it was uncomfortable which caused me to wake up sometimes and I had to keep changing sleeping positions, but I kept going back to sleep and I never got in my bed.

Unfortunately I did not record the dreams that I remembered, but fortunately I managed to barely remember part of my most interesting dream that I can remember.

This dream possibly took place during the day and I remember being outside in the yard of my parents when I saw an unidentified flying object (UFO) in the sky.

I followed the UFO trying to figure out what it was, unfortunately my memory is too unclear to remember which I saw first, and so I am not sure if I saw the experimental government spaceship / aircraft / UFO first or if I saw the possibly alien UFO / spacecraft / aircraft first.

Either way I saw one of them before I saw the other, the possibly alien UFO was maybe silver and circular horizontally but was probably a different shape vertically, but I can not remember.

The government was probably secretly testing their experimental spaceship / aircraft / UFO when suddenly the assumed alien UFO probably appeared high above it in the sky.

I am not sure if I got to interact with the possibly alien UFO or not, but I do know that it landed somewhere and a boy with light-color skin who was probably a genius interacted with the assumed alien UFO because it landed probably near him and his family.

I saw this but I can not remember how close I got, the experimental government spaceship / aircraft / UFO saw this, and so the government probably sent some people to investigate.

The boy and his family probably boarded the assumed alien UFO, the assumed alien UFO communicated with them like maybe it was controlled by some kind of alien artificial intelligence (AI) that could speak English with maybe a male voice, and it probably took the family flying and later to its dimension and / or planet.

The government got into contact with the family, the government wanted the assumed alien UFO, but the family seemed to have a special connection with it now like it was identifying them as the pilots of it maybe so the government decided to be cautious and to not take the assumed alien UFO yet but they made some kind of agreement with the family but the government was probably secretly plotting and spying on the family looking for any openings to get their hands on it and / or to learn its secrets so that they could make their own and maybe learn about where it came from and who built it et cetera.

The government probably had the family doing some experiments and missions for them and / or something like that, but I am not sure.

I am not sure if the government interrogated me or not about what I saw, but my voice recording of this dream mentioned something about the government and / or someone else betraying me and my family.

I also can not remember if the government sent me to talk to the family or not, I just know that I went to see the family at their house and / or in the other dimension and / or on the other planet.

The mother of the family was my coworker Ms. J, the father was a man with light-color skin, and they had at least two sons with light-color skin with the youngest son appearing to be a genius who had the closest connection with the assumed alien UFO.

Their entire family seemed to be good with technology, in the real world Ms. J is somewhat over the IT (information technology) Department at The BP Library where we work, and so this was not too surprising.

I guess we had met before at the UFO landing site and Ms. J is my coworker so the family knew me, and they welcomed me inside the house.

I wanted to talk to them about the assumed alien UFO and some other sensitive topics, but I was worried that the government was watching and listening with covert surveillance devices so I was going to have to be very careful so my plan was to talk about other topics while carefully communicating through writing about sensitive topics hoping that no camera could see what I was writing secretly to them.

The two sons were excited and were showing me around like I was one of their young friends or something, at some point the young son told me that he had reprogrammed the assumed alien UFO to my surprise, and so I tried to warn him in writing that it was not safe to talk about this out-loud and that we should communicate through writing about topics like that while talking about other topics out-loud to hoping trick anyone who might be spying on us.

I probably wrote that the government is probably spying on them and is probably plotting against them, and so we had to be very careful.

I wrote that I had some questions but that I wanted to wait until it felt safe enough for me to ask these questions, but I woke up.

In the real world I found out why sleeping on the couch felt more uncomfortable than usual, it was because one side of the couch had sank in even more than the other side, and so I woke up sore and stiff and I forgot most of my dreams including parts of this dream.

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

Source: Wikimedia Commons

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.

The end,
