The technology to capture dreams is in the works. I remember asking my sixth grade science teacher if it would ever be possible for the images I saw in my dreams to ever be recorded. The answer is yes, but not at all in the way I was hoping for. They can do this only for the simplest of dreams and only then an object or scan of a person, without any details.
The Sixth Grader inside is rather disappointed in the lack of development in this area. Why? Because I have some of the most amazing, movie like dreams almost every night, sometimes more then one a night. This is one of the major things that influence my stories.
In fact I still remember a lot of them, even ones I had in early childhood. Needless to say I wish, and have always wished that there was such a machine. One that could record the amazing images and stories that I have come to cherish. Sometimes there are just no words to describe the out-of-this-world exquisite settings. Many of my children's stories actually started out from a dream that I have had, including Polarbe's Hibernation and our upcoming Halloween monster story.
Last night I had one such dream. It was actually about a machine that could make anything that a person with a huge imagination could come up with, in 3d. Made into movies and books. It was a corporation, who was looking for the next prodigy. Walt Disney had been the last person who had succeeded to make the programs and technology work. I was the next. Needless to say I learned the price of such technology and the machine and I started to become one.
I woke up and wrote down everything I could remember, but part of me just wished, despite the consequences, that such a machine and company could actually exist.
Maybe in the future it can. Until then I will have to be content with writing my dreams down and making them into books and movies the old fashioned way. Until then I will be dreaming, and writing. - K. A. Petentler
I am a fairytale writer of children's books and young adult novels. At the moment I have self published through my own publishing company. Remnants Publishing. Unmasked is my first long short fairytale. Polarbe's Hibernation is our children's book. And there is plenty more on the way.
