Sovereign Mind

Sovereign Mind

Early this morning I dreamt. Human minds were synthetic, AI-like constructs, except that our minds were biological-ideological constructs rather than computer-like constructs as we commonly understand them. In the dream, there was no sense of extra-terrestrial or divine intervention or genetic manipulation. It was a fully human endeavor.

In the dream, I was an investigator. Other people were taking their seats for a big show. I did not. I stood aside a doorway across the aisle from the rows of seats. I just stood there observing. I was not going to take a seat, even though I was told to do so. I stepped toward the crowd, but slipped away unseen and through a doorway instead. I found myself in the place where human minds were being assembled - something I was not supposed to see. Seeing it, my mind was now rogue, a danger to those who adversely mold the minds of the mass of humanity.

I interpret this dream as marking another step up along my path of individuation and self-realization. I also understand the danger I am to those who profit from controlling the minds of others, who profit from keeping us ignorant, who profit from quashing our spirits into sameness, uniformity and misidentity. Nevertheless, I claim sovereignty over my own mind.
