It’s true. AND: I did it in a dream the premise of which was: THIS IS NOT A DREAM.
You know how you have those dreams? Those other dreams? You realize, “Wait! This is a DREAM!”
This was not like that. THIS IS NOT A DREAM was the foundation of the dream.
SO: I was seeing cats that no one else could see. And I sought to PROVE that no one else could see these cats, these cats I was seeing in what was NOT A DREAM.
I called people into the room where I saw a cat. I pointed directly at the cat that I saw and asked, “Do you see a cat there?”
No one saw a cat there. But this was NOT A DREAM, this dream.
More cats came. No one else saw the cats, and I grew accustomed to seeing the cats that no one else saw.
It began to get funny when the cats that I saw showed that they were hungry. I began to worry that if I dished out real food in what was NOT A DREAM to cats that no one else saw, it might mean that I had gone mad.
This was a TRUE DREAM.
When I awoke, I remembered my TRUE DREAM and how within my TRUE DREAM my dream was NOT A DREAM.
And then I read the TRUE NEWS and the first story I read (THIS IS TRUE) was about how scientists built a neural network of 16,000 computer processors with one billion connections and how it had taught itself to recognize cats.
“We never told it during the training, ‘This is a cat,’” said Google fellow Dr. Jeff Dean. “It basically invented the concept of a cat.”
This is a TRUE STORY.
