The ‘dream’ of the future – a video game
Posted On July 9, 2021
By Alex Lantier and John Pritchard The following article is an excerpt from a new book entitled The Dream of the Future: How Technology and Art are shaping our dreams and shaping the world around us.
We’re excited to be publishing it, as it presents a fascinating view into the future of the art world, and the creative industries that will be impacted by it.
The title is taken from a short essay by the writer Michael Caley, entitled, “I am dreaming of a new world”.
In it, he describes his fascination with the dreamscape of the imagination, which has been transformed by computer-generated imagery, 3D printing and the rise of augmented reality.
We spoke to Michael Caleys about the nature of his own “dream”.
How did the term “dream” come about?
Michael Cadeys is the author of a number of novels and non-fiction books, including the award-winning trilogy, Dreams of the Dreamers, which was nominated for a Bafta Award in 2017.
He is also the author, with John Pivens, of The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath, which won the American Library Association’s 2017 Pulitzer Prize.
Dream is a word that’s a bit like a dream, he says.
It’s just a little thing you have a dream about, like going to a place, or meeting a person, and then you wake up and you go back to your normal life.
What is the “dream”?
What do you dream about?
There are two types of dreams, according to Michael.
There’s the traditional kind of dream, where the person who is dreaming has a dream and you’re there.
And then there’s the new kind, where you are dreaming, but you’re not there.
There are lots of ways you can have these dreams.
You can have a vision or a dream in which you are, like, in a room somewhere and you hear a noise, and you get up and go into the room and the noise is not there, and suddenly you’re back in your old room, with the sound gone.
And you’re just like, “Oh my God, what’s that noise?”
And then you go and find it.
Or you can just think of a different way of having that dream.
Or what you dream of in a dream is different to what you have in real life.
For example, you might have a different dream of the beach.
The dream might be about a guy swimming around in the ocean.
Or it might be a dream of being in a different place, like a jungle, and finding a way to get through that jungle.
Or the dream might just be, like in a movie, about something happening, and it might happen in a way that you’re a little bit surprised.
In that case, it might just sound like you’re really surprised.
What does this mean for the work that artists are doing?
You might think that because of the rise in virtual reality, artists are trying to create virtual worlds where they can interact with objects in a realistic way, but they are not creating virtual worlds in which they are actually doing the actual work.
And there’s actually nothing like that, where virtual worlds are created with a virtual reality in mind, but the work is done in the real world.
The difference is that virtual worlds can be created in a virtual space.
For a lot of artists, the goal is to create worlds where you actually experience the world and you actually make a lot more progress.
That’s where the focus is.
That means you can make an incredible amount of progress in creating a virtual world, because you’re able to do all sorts of things that you can’t do in real space.
That has a lot to do with how the brain works.
If you have your mind in the virtual world of a computer, and your body in the physical world, your brain is basically trying to do the same things that it’s doing in real time.
So your brain works like this: it’s trying to process the information that’s coming in, and to make sense of it.
That happens all the time in the brain.
But if you are in a real world, you’re thinking, “What is the best way to interact with the world?
What is my best way of interacting with it?
How can I make my work stand out from the rest of the crowd?”
The brain has this sort of “dream brain”.
You have to be able to actually remember your thoughts, and be able process those thoughts.
But also be able actually think about them in a physical space.
What you are really trying to achieve is to be in the space of a virtual environment where you can actually make those kinds of abstractions and visualizations.
That might mean that you have these visualizations that you could be making in your mind.
But the reality is that you are not making those abstractions in a game, because the actual game is doing that. So that
