“An Economy of Dreams – I” / A Memorable Fancy #215

Neuroscientists at Harvard find a way to record dreams as the dreamer experienced them, not merely as blips on a screen. Papers are published, students experimented on. A quasi-religious cult develops, with apostles and adherents, then goes mainstream. An app is developed to let people download their dreams and share them on the Web, or show them at parties to applause and guffaws. Politicians are Alarmed. “Sin” is whispered by those who like to sin, and by those who do not.

There are dream-competitions on network TV, with wacky judges and instant fame. Sporting competitions are held to see who can dream running the fastest mile.
