What Is It?

The YouTube video Sci-Fi Short Film “Frances And Yuri Ring In The New Year” | DUST by the YouTube channel DUST.

Here is the description for the short film above:

It turns out that life as we know it is a sophisticated computer simulation. Earth, existence, and consciousness; all the design of a hyper intelligent race of aliens known as the Thesquardorians. On December the 31st, 1974, the Thesquardorians decided the simulation had run its course. This is an absurdist comedy set in a computer lab in the 1970s. Two computer technicians dredging through their graveyard shift on New Year’s Eve stumble upon the final digit of pi, which sends their entire existence spiraling out of control as they come to terms with the fact that it was all a sophisticated computer simulation.

Like Your People

I had more dreams but I kept going back to sleep without recording them, and so now I can only barely remember one part of one dream.

The dream involved me being inside a building with my former coworker Mr. CG from The BP School Board Computer / IT (Information Technology) Department, and he and / or we were working on fixing a computer / electronics / IT problem of some kind.

At some point I remember Mr. CG saying something in reference to someone (possibly himself and / or someone else) and / or something having multiple eye colors (maybe blue and green in one or both eyes) where he said something at the end of his sentence like: “Like your people.”.

I was confused and surprised for a moment, what did he mean by your people, and then I assumed that he either guessed or somehow knew that some of my ancestors possibly had multiple eye colors like that.

For a moment I wondered how did he know that, but him guessing that would not be so hard so I stopped thinking about it because it was possible based on the various locations my ancestors were from.

The end,
