Talking Heads (with Boring Ideas About Mentalism)

Characters: head, me, them, man

I had a long series of dreams in which I talked to a number of seeming disembodied heads. I was speaking to them about metaphysical questions, and one of them answered:
head: "You need to just figure out how to be happy in trance meditation. It's come to the point where I am actually happiest when I'm in an empty room and just experiencing enlightenment. If you master that you can take it anywhere and you won't have to worry about anything."
Note I find this kind of attitude very boring and am not drawn to the people who talk like this.
Later I was facing a discussion with an older woman disembodied head, who was some kind of Queen or leader. There were a few people walking around who were not just heads.
As I asked her questions of who she thought I was or how it was that I had arrived there, she acted like she was going to show me something shocking. She gestured at a wall of small statues as if that was relevant, but that if I looked closer I would be frightened.
me: "I've seen The Matrix, so, really...uh, y'know, if you show me a bunch of pods with people in it covered in goo and tubes and tell me that's my real body and I'm just a simulation...I'll be hardly shocked. Oh, wait... have you seen The Matrix?"
them: "Yes, we have."
Someone in the back piped up:
man: "The problem here is that he's just running on the wrong hardware. But I don't know what to put him on. The lawnmower?"
me: "Well, look, I accept the notion that I'm running on something. But you're running on something. What's that?"
man: "I don't want to know that yet."
me: "I'm ready for whatever creepy truth you guys have."
Rather than tell me anything I understood, they showed me clips of some movie about people who were stuck on a rollercoaster. It was a very vicious coaster that was like some kind of grotesque Funhouse theme, and the people (like Nick Cage or maybe Harrison Ford?) couldn't get off of it.
me: "Yes, I already know about this movie."
Note Upon waking I don't recall the resembling anything I know about, except one dream I had about a hellish rollercoaster.

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?
