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.”

Mass Mind Reading / Mind Control?

Dream 1

All that I can remember of this dream is that most of my family and I were driving somewhere, and we went to a school building when school was not taking place.

At the school I remember seeing a woman who looked like or was Ellie Kendrick.

Trying To Survive A Torture Chamber

Dream 1

All that I can remember of this dream from last night is that I was inside a building, maybe a fictional version of The BP Library where I work as a shelver, and I was in the back in probably the employee area.

There was something involving computers going on that I can not remember, maybe computer maintenance / repair / et cetera, and maybe at least one of the computers contained maybe some pornography.

Getting Tortured & Humiliated & Experimented On By The Police?

Dream 1

All that I can remember of this dream from last night is that it involved news and things about The President Of The United States Donald Trump  and his administration, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

My memory of this dream is not so good because of what happened to me in the dream, I literally suffered memory loss in the dream from what was being done to me, and so I can not remember most of this dream.
