What Is It?

The 2022 fantasy movie, Three Thousand Years Of Longing.

THREE THOUSAND YEARS OF LONGING | Official Trailer | MGM Studios
Three Thousand Years of Longing Featurette – The Djinn and the Genius (2022)

This is how the IMDB describes this movie:

Dr Alithea Binnie (Tilda Swinton) is an academic – content with life and a creature of reason.

While in Istanbul attending a conference, she happens to encounter a Djinn (Idris Elba) who offers her three wishes in exchange for his freedom.

This presents two problems.

First, she doubts that he is real and second, because she is a scholar of story and mythology, she knows all the cautionary tales of wishes gone wrong.

The Djinn pleads his case by telling her fantastical stories of his past.

Eventually, she is beguiled and makes a wish that surprises them both.

This is how Wikipedia describes this movie:

Three Thousand Years of Longing is a 2022 fantasy film co-written and directed by George Miller.

An adaptation of the short story “The Djinn in the Nightingale’s Eye” by A. S. Byatt, the film stars Idris Elba and Tilda Swinton.

Three Thousand Years of Longing had its world premiere at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival on May 20, 2022, and is scheduled to be released in the United States on August 31, 2022, by United Artists Releasing.[4]

A scholar, content with life, encounters a Djinn who offers her three wishes in exchange for his freedom.

Their conversation, in a hotel room in Istanbul, leads to consequences neither would have expected.[5]

I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream (Short Story)

I Have no Mouth and I Must Scream – Harlan Ellison (audiobook)

What Is It?

The video above is an audiobook version of the 1967 post-apocalyptic science fiction horror short story I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream by Harlan Ellison.

I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream – The End of the Apocalypse – Extra Sci Fi

This is how Wikipedia describes this short story:

In a dystopian future, the Cold War has degenerated into a brutal world war between the United States, the Soviet Union, and China, who have each built an “Allied Mastercomputer” (or AM) to manage their weapons and troops. One of the AMs eventually acquires self-awareness and, after assimilating the other two AMs, takes control of the conflict, giving way to a vast genocide operation that almost completely ends mankind. 109 years later, AM has left only four men and one woman alive and keeps them in captivity within an endless underground housing complex, the only habitable place left on Earth. AM derives its sole semblance of pleasure from torturing the group. To disallow the humans from escaping its torment, AM has rendered the humans virtually immortal and unable to commit suicide.

The machines are each referred to as “AM”, which originally stood for “Allied Mastercomputer”, but was changed to “Adaptive Manipulator” and later (after gaining sentience) “Aggressive Menace”. It finally refers to itself as purely “AM”, referring to the phrase “I think, therefore I am.”

A Medical & Library & College Computer Lab & Dreams Within Dreams

Part of this dream took place at a medical & library & college computer lab, and the different parts of the building where these three different places were located like: The BP Library, a medical office and / or clinic and / or research facility and / or something like that, and a college.

We all possibly shared a computer lab or our computer labs were next to each other, and some of our staff areas were near this area as well, like some of our staff areas for The BP Library.
