Here’s a few films worth watching, not necessarily for the story telling, but for pure taste of imagination. Some of the imagery continues to be influential. A Socratic ciné moment perhaps…
Dreams have the ability to simulate life experiences and mental states, but sometimes it falls flat on its face.
I can’t recall how the dream started… but someone, Bob, that I worked with years ago was involved, and a conflict resolution event occurred in the form of hailing a taxi, arriving at our destination and exiting the taxi and getting all the luggage took place.
Once we got settled with the taxi, we’re standing on a street corner talking, and Bob comments on a hat that a Japanese woman is wearing. It’s brimmed sun hat of sorts. The woman overhears our conversation and tells us “it’s a Japanese hat gourd hat. It’s a hat made from from the Japanese hat gourd, and is literally shaped like a hat.”
We’re really interested in this, so we start to google for more info. While I’m browsing for results, I can’t get over the weird music and strange search interface. The more I try to make sense of it, the more bizarre it becomes until I wake up.
My brain couldn’t simulate a convincing internet search experience, so its haphazard attempt created a situation that resulted in my brain rejected the scenario.
on Mac OS, YMMV on linux, but i think syntax is same…
