I’m lying on the floor in the dark.

Alert: probable false awakening, with lucid potential.

I click OK and an invisible force drags me round by the feet; faster, faster, and:

Pop. I’m born into an insanely-coloured 3D Avatar-type scene. A hyperreal stereogram.

A slight strobo effect resolves.

Illuminated in fine detail, butterflies and other colourful symbols hang, tremble, as if on a gossamer mobile.

I appreciate the complex silhouettes and metashapes; from somewhere parallel I observe my own wonder.


Could your mind blink fast enough, strobe reality, such that you stopped the model?

Such that you appreciated detail, scale and depth, the texture of life’s surfaces, in a billion packets of bullet time?
