Last weekend I had to do a bit of driving for the national guard. I was in a big truck called an LMTV. The thing only goes about 55 mph so I had plenty of time to think while I was driving down the interstate.

So anyways, I’m cruising along the Interstate without a radio at 55 mph, and I’m trying to think of things to keep me entertained over the next three hours. I look over to my right at the guy next to me named Mujahed Kuwa. Kuwa had a pretty interesting life story, and had seen things in his childhood that I would not wish upon anyone. He was born in Somalia and eventually had moved to Kenya before coming to the United States when he was 12. This was quite synchronous, I thought, as I had lived in Alaska before moving to the lower 48 at the age of 12.

At the moment Kuwa was sleeping. I looked back at the road and began to imagine a good dream for him. In my mind I was in Africa, following a cheetah through the grasslands. I began to imagine what it would be like to be the cheetah. My mind seemed to slip off into another quantum dimension, and I began to feel at one with the cheetah. To say this means that my imagination was fully immersed in the way that a cheetah would think, feel, smell… how it’s muscles would feel as it stalked through the grass searching for prey.

I then detached the video from my mind, and attempted to plant it in Kuwa’s mind. I didn’t ask him later on whether or not he had had a dream about cheetahs, but I should have.

After that, I detached from the image of the cheetah, and began to float above the grassland. I opened up my mind and transcended its’ limits, and allowed myself to search out the various animals in the area, so I could see through their eyes. I then floated higher in the sky, using my body as a focus point, and extended my vision into multiple animals at once. I could feel my ego dissolving into multiple viewpoints, a mouse somewhere in the grass, a grasshopper chirping in the distance. Though I felt open and receptive to the harmonies around me, I could also sense a lack of connection to the grass and the rocks and the air; so, I expanded my perspective out to include the vegetation and the inanimate objects.

As I did that, I felt supremely connected to much of what was around me. A nagging feeling came over me suddenly, and I still felt like I was not at one. Suddenly, I felt someone/something speak to me, and it said, “See through the light”. So, I attempted to shift my conscious perspective to that of the photons striking everywhere around me from the sun.

I could not have been more surprised with what I imagined. Trillions of light rays, streaking through space, headed for us here at Earth. These rays were doing nothing more than driving along the solar interstate, just as I was driving along our terrestrial interstate. I suddenly had this realization that I was consuming, devouring, literally capturing the energy of the sun’s rays as they struck me.

When light (consisting of the photon) strikes my eye, it gets absorbed by receptors and transmitted directly to the brain. Every single moment I am devouring millions if not billions of photons, gobbled up by my receptors and interpreted and digested by my unquenchable desire to ‘see’. I imagined the life of the photon, flying through space (picture the photon screaming wildly, like he’s driving a toyota that has the gas pedal stuck) and eventually smashing against the earth. The trees and animals and plants all greedily and mercilessly feasting on the never-ending onslaught of photons. See through the light, see the light being eaten and consumed by yourself and your surroundings. Witness the death of a photon. Damn that would make a funny cartoon.

Cruising along, I began to daydream about alternate plains of reality. It occurred to me that there is a reason that we should think upon the good. By imagining things which are good, we are reverberating along a wave fluctuation that permeates throughout the entire universe. We construct our realities through the quantum probability matrix. By focusing on permutations and fluctuations that are positive in value, it is possible to eventually eliminate all alternate realities, bringing new meaning to the idea that ‘sin is dead to me’. Through simple belief it actually may be possible to change reality.

This is based off of a dream.

In the dream, I was wandering through a future mall. It was a somewhat plain hallway, but there were many rooms spanning off. The rooms were built in amphitheater style (I always thought it was ampitheatre, guess not..) with little platform sections for the players. Each group/player had their own little section of space. Everyone was wearing contact lenses, and an attendant acquired me a pair. When I stepped into the small playing field that was my ‘space’/’seat’ (there was no chair), approx. 8 ft by 8 ft in area, a projector light shined into my eyes.

Kinda.

You see, the contact lenses were specially designed to refract and reflect certain wavelengths of light. So, when the projector shined the light in my playing area, they refracted off of the specially designed contacts, which in turn created an image on the contacts. This created an essentially 3-d rendering of the video game that I had stepped into, completely immersing me in the visuals of the war game room that I had chosen to enter (like I said, it was a mall, and there were many rooms spanning off, i.e. many video game rooms. I had chosen a gears of war style gameroom).

Using facial, eye, and body recognition software, along with numerous other aspects (i.e. psych profile, previous player motion history (to compile approximations on reaction time, decision making, etc)) the computer was able to analyze my motions and intuitively respond to my every move, making the gaming experience extremely functional.

It’s not too far-fetched to believe that the true revolution in 3-d will come with specialized contacts.
