The Genesis of Dreams

It starts

with

a cluster

of synapses

engaged

in an instant,

sparking

a thought

that demands

utterance.

From there,

the thought

encounters

the Creative web,

spun into an image

and challenging

other Creatives

to interpret

this happenstance

as something personal,

something artistic,

even transcendent.

All efforts

to parse,

to map

the web of inspiration

fall behind,

as more connections

are born

from a single word,

from a single sentience,

revealing the hidden shape

of the collective consciousness,

the existence

of the macro-organism

forming in the digital realm,

reshaping our worlds

from the chaotician's

fractal calculations

of nascent probability

as the overmind wakens.
