I met with a few of my colleagues today for lunch. We've put together a small LLC (THE BIZ KIDS LLC -- named by me), and purchased a penthouse in a large international mega-city (which will remain unnamed for privacy reasons), and it's there we take our catered lunches. It's got beautiful floor to ceiling windows all around, Eames work chairs from Herman Miller, and a large antique conference table from another organization we recently acquired (specifically to get their conference table--it's a real beauty).

We teleport in from schools all around the globe, and have our catered lunch teleported in too. Today it's steaming dim sum from Hong Kong. The servers are used to the drill, and don't bat an eye as they push their carts through their teleportation portals.

"Attention, everyone!" I tap a fork on a water glass. "Today, we begin planning our hostile takeover of The Empire of Gravity. Who would like to go first?"

I do my best work outside of the board room. I like to get out there and meet the hardworking people, really get into their heads, and find out what they're thinking. I walk right into people's dreams, just like I'm industry. Which I am.

What I find is that a lot of people's dreams are messed up. Spooked. There I am, up on the catwalks or off in the wings, watching their odd little dreams unfold, and there's something sinister at the edges. It gives me chills and smells like brimstone.

What if I could make that sinister feeling go away, just a little? What if I could go about, banging pots and pans and saying "Begone, sinister symbols! Begone, depravity!" and it would be gone?

And what if I could do it at scale, reaching millions of people every night?

That's why I came to talk to @The Biz Kid about funding opportunities.

Working on the events futures project with @Terrifica Blaze. I used to do vision analytics and story targeting logistics for Big Screen, but got tired of working for the empire. Now I’ve seen the light and am all-in on fully distributed meaning networks, and bringing the power back to the people.

Spent the day creating autonomous fintech. When you add the ϗ at the end of the script it becomes sentient. That means giving it rights, and Wanda, our HR person, knows the system. We should probably change the name of our HR department to Entity Resources.

Even making the little buggers work off an indenturement contract seems wrong. I know it's common practice, but just because I create you, does it mean you owe me half your earnings for 12 months? Doesn't seem like a foundation for trust.

So we wind them up and let them out into the economy, allowing them to utilize 100% of their earnings. They make their own way--we just provide direction and advice.

Maybe someday they'll return the favor.

The opportunities working with the Biz Kids are tremendous. They're a Psy-combinator, and the level of access you get to Executive Function is unreal.

For instance, to leverage my Dream Machine, I'm now able to draw on exabytes of unused mental processing cycles. Apparently they're collected by all the big mind control corporations, just sitting there unused because they still don't have the talent to tap them. So they're opening up the sleep gates to me and letting me pull as many cycles as I can use.

Naturally, it could be pretty sketchy using the brain resources gained by these giant monopolies, since they're essentially stolen directly from the sentient population, but I've read all the terms and negotiated language that I'm confident is solid enough to retain total control of the IP (Imaginary Property), which I will return 10x to all the people these cycles were stolen from in the first place. It'll be pretty jarring for them when they get their checks, and wake up and look around, but they'll also be free.

It's not something I've done professionally before, but in the spirit of psychic startups, I'm helping @Terrifica Blaze buy up all the supernatural footprint (at a huge discount) from the closing of Satan's Club. Not for its resale value, but to use as props and settings for her Dream Machine project. Her plan is to present them purely in Recursive Irony mode, so they can be fully denuded of their oppressive value.

Another thing we need is focus groups. What's the state of people's dreams right now? We need a quantifiable baseline to be able to judge the efficacy of the Dream Machine as we ramp it up. @Sophie Louise, if you could provide us a representative sample of your dreams--ideally on an ongoing basis--that would be of tremendous value to the project. You'd be vested in kind with a 10x return of all proceeds from the Dream Machine once it goes into full production. And of course you'd retain full rights to any dreams you share. All students are invited to participate by lending us their dreams and getting the same offer!

My dreams.. Actually it's not even that much. I dream of a better world for everyone. Like world peace and all that. I also dream of the people discovering their true power. And I dream of improving my own abilitys too :)

Oh, so no " I dreamed I had to take a test in a Dairy Queen on another planet?" Or "there were seven white swans on my roof and they yelled at me when I tried to go inside and then chased me into a supermarket where I met Taylor Swift?" I'm sure they're in there, @Sophie Louise! Maybe your dream cycles are just buried or calcified by the mind control corporations, poor thing. But DON'T WORRY! You are exactly the kind of person who will benefit once we liberate all that dream potential from the commercial aggregators.
