“I like how the rain makes all of the city lights look like an ocean of stars. What do you think it would be like in space? Sometimes, I wish I was an astroid miner just so I could know what it was like“ says the person sitting across from me. I know that we have been friends for many years but I do not know this person’s name. “If you’re going to fantasize about space, why don’t you imagine something more glamorous like being an ambassador for earth?” I say in a lighthearted tone. “Well, now that you mention it, I suppose I would rather be an EGP pilot” my friend says with a sly smile. “Hey what’s that“ she points to the window. A large airbus had parked its self outside and was just hovering. This sort of thing is a normal occurrence, were it not for the fact that neither of us had seen this particular type of airbus before. “I’ve never seen one like that before“ I say. “Let’s go check it out!“ my friend shouts. We both run outside, taking no precautions for the rain. “Woah, whoever made this craft is definitely not human. It’s almost like it’s made out of light. And look around, I don’t think anyone else sees it. What do you think it is?” I say over the roar of craft flying by. No answer. I look around, but now both my friend and the craft are gone.
I have a lot of dreams about the future. The above story is based on once such dream I had recently. On April 16 I’m releasing a song called “Escape velocity” Inspired by this dream and many others. Whenever I catch a glimpse of the future in my dreams it is both fantastic and terrible. Have you ever had a dream about the future? What do you think the future will be like? What kind of future do you want to live in?
