    Default An odd dream

    Last night I had a pretty odd dream. It was an apocalypse-style dream. It started out pretty normal, but then we started getting word of some weird (computer) virus that was going around. Don't remember who "we" is. It was two or three people, myself taking the perspective as one of them.

    Anyways, after some investigating, we finally figured out how the virus was getting around (apparently it was being sold to hundreds of wannabe hackers for something like $100, which is partially why it was being spread so fast). It was both a cellphone and a computer virus.

    Anyways, about the time we were about to close in on the asshole behind the whole thing, some giant ass robot starts appearing, destroying everything and killing almost everyone. Eventually he would disappear. It seemed like he would teleport around the globe, destroy/kill for 20-30 minutes, then disappear/go somewhere else.

    Eventually, we realized that it was cellphones that were allowing the deathbot to track down large clusters of people. Most people hadn't caught on. Internet/phone services still worked for the most part, which is why people were still able to use them.


    Somehow, I ended up in some huge city on the coast. Not sure if it was Europe/Asia/America or what. I had gotten separated from (or they had died) the people I had been with. I watched a pretty neat battle of the military trying to take out the robot, they even made use of some macross-style transforming jets.

    That's about when I woke up.

    What happened to the robot?

    This hacker gets $100 for every virus he sells, PLUS gets to kill thousands of people?
    ... That moment when you realized that your bath towel is covered in sawdust.

    I don't think the hacker realized what his virus would end up being used for. I'm honestly not sure if he was the creator of it, either.

    I wasn't omnipotent in the dream, so I had no idea what was going on half the time :S Most of it was just best guesses.


    Edit: But then again, perhaps her does. Now that I think about it, I read a novel a few months ago called First Activation where some group/cult used an alien device to kill off large portions of the population so that they could restart civilization and be kings or some such. Perhaps the hacker was doing something similar to that, and you could "buy" into the elite with just a $100 and a little initiative.

    Sounds like a fun dream. I always hate when I wake up before they end.
    However through some magic I can usually start my dream back up where it was interrupted if I go back to sleep within 5-10 minutes.
