Characters: guy, me

At one point in a dream I was dancing around with some people, they were singing a song. The chorus was something like "We will liberate you, we will free your mind". Looking at myself in the mirror I had a beard and some kind of bushy hair--similar to my face, but different.
A guy who looked like a friend of mine was laying on the ground next to a wall with a large screen TV. I approached him and he began to speak.
guy: "It sure must be frustrating for you... living in a world that runs so counter to your values."
me: "Tell me about it. I'm in Mexico right now, and the government is just horribly corrupt. You see broken systems everywhere."
guy: "Well, you set all that up."
me: "Aaaaah! That again! I never screwed up Mexico. What do you mean when you say I was responsible for something I have no memory of?"
guy: "No, not saying that. Okay, let's get something straight. First of all, you were human, and a member of a group that had a vision of a better future. But it's now mandatory that you have to go back the other direction for 105 years--everyone has to. You learn things that way...about jealousy, or hate. You also can find what would make someone who went through a bad situation NOT fix it so that others wouldn't have to face the same thing."
me: "You said 105 years? How many have I done?"
guy: "Well you were running late, you had a lot of political obligations to take care of first. And there's still some incarnations you need to do before you're finished. You haven't lived as part of an agricultural-based society. Like in Vietnam or China, growing sugar..."
me: "Vietnam or China?! For decades? I don't want to do that! If I do, is this dreaming and alternate existence going to stabilize? Will I live a double life of some kind, or am I going to get reset so I don't remember any of this?"
I woke up while he was answering.

The accounts written here are as true as I can manage. While the words are my own, they are not independent creative works of fiction —in any intentional way. Thus I do not consider the material to be protected by anything, other than that you'd have to be crazy to want to try and use it for genuine purposes (much less disingenuous ones!) But who's to say?
