Characters: me, other

I was typing on a computer terminal...making a few errors, but able to do a decent job. What was going on was some kind of text adventure game. I tried typing in words like "system" and "version" to figure out what kind of computer it was, and I got back a lot of stuff I'd never heard of.
It occurred to me to make an effort to remember one word which was ARAMANAIA. I used that the end was AIA to help me remember.
It sounded like nonsense, but a Google search upon awakening amazingly found only four hits, one of which was on a "psychic spiritual portrait" of someone apparently named Aramanaia:
When I wrote a letter to the 'School of Spiritual Knowledge' inquiring about what this was about, I got a response saying that the picture had been uploaded by a member with no context and thus there was no further information.
Some manipulations were happening on the screen that I wasn't causing to happen, so I thought maybe someone was watching me type. I tried to initiate a conversation by typing.
me: "Hello?"
other: "Oh... yes?"
me: "What's going on? What is this game?"
other: "Oh it's shiite [sic] someone uploaded."
The next thing I saw was a directory listing where the files were. The game was called "outpost". After some failed attempts to type more questions and getting puzzled responses back, I decided to change tactics.
me: "Would you like to meet in person?"
other: "Now?"
me: "Yes!"
This caused something to change radically, and I was suddenly reading words that had been printed three dimensionally on layers of glass. It explained that meeting now would violate a certain condition and be a bad thing.
I woke up, long enough to note down the name ARAMANAIA and go back to sleep.
Currently I am experimenting with using Disqus for comments, however it is configured that you don't have to log in or tie it to an account. Simply check the "I'd rather post as a guest" button after clicking in the spot to type in a name.

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?
