Last night my dreams took another strange twists. Lately I’ve frequently dreamed of being other people, and I did have one of those last night as well, but the new thing is for the first time ever I’ve dreamt of being a different species or sex, I dreamt I was a female fish.
It is odd how natural the experience felt. Swimming around in water, oblivious that there was anything but water, but aware of the fact that some areas that used to have my species now didn’t and wanting to fix that. My level of thought was simple but not non-existent as I would have expected for a creature with a brain the size of a pinhead.
My being someone else dream last night involved being a student in a completely different school system. Core skills were taught at a very young age. By the time you got into high school you were completely free to study whatever you wanted. It was a totally open campus, not a youth jail like today’s schools. In the dream the degree of choices available was somewhat overwhelming, as opposed to the amount of requirements in the existing system.
I think the educational system I experienced in the dream would actually be a good way of doing things, instead of turning out a bunch of robot clones it would turn out students with highly developed unique skills.
