Ten thousand and one nights

It is believed that dreams help a person overcome fears and work out possible scenarios for the future. We dream to rehearse: dreams allow us to practice our fight or flight instincts, train our natural instincts, and support these scenarios when we need them in life.

Relying on the human experience of dreaming and collecting the repressed material, artificial intelligence constructs it into new poetic forms and images that acquire their own meaning and action. Artificial intelligence algorithms have the power to transform fragments of memories and separate, sometimes meaningless phrases into something holistic, into a single image, into a narrative capable of awakening subconscious experiences in a person. Thanks to illogical patterns of the algorithm, we can get scenarios that expand our view of the possible future. Images that tantalize and promise something that never will, and show something that never happened. The images and text from the unconscious machine are like a call, like a secret signal from the essence of a different order, into which memories break through, breaking loose from their leash in time, to become a kind of special form of life, real, but in another dimension, a force acting along a different trajectory.
