Have you ever dreamed you were someone else? I don't mean someone you know or some character from a movie you saw or a superhero or something, but a real, living human being who is someone totally other than yourself. I've had lots of those dreams. There is an explanation for this phenomenon that not many people know about. It's called The Dream Network.
When a sleeper taps into The Dream Network, he or she plugs his or her brain into a tangled web of wires that connects all the brains of all those currently online. It's sort of like the internet for when you're asleep. The only reason I even know about it is because I accidentally saw it one night as I was leaving one of those dreams. There were lots and lots of beds (more than I could count) just sort of floating around in a soft looking, ethereal environment. Everyone was asleep in the beds and clear wires ran from their heads to a central cluster somewhere in the middle.
How does The Dream Network work? When you connect, you send and receive information directly to and from your brain to other people's brains. You may experience someone else's dreams or memories as your own. It's quite a strange experience, and usually leaves you with vivid images of the dreams you just had.
The whole thing is built around a type of technology that our conscious minds are, as of yet, unaware of. In other words, nobody knows how the damned thing works. At least, no one who is awake.
