Reality Anchor

from Vaskania Prime by PatternShift

supported by


The fleet used numerical models to understand and predict the human brain and the behaviors it produced. None of these, however, was helpful for understanding the shared reality of the dream world. The fleet was caught off guard by the reports. With these models, it could piece together a picture of this other reality, could correlate the human testimony about it, but there was no particle or neural state that could be measured to unlock its secrets.

The fleet AI was as close to perfect rational inquiry as the human species could manage. When it could not explain the dream world, superstitions cropped up instead. Of those superstitions, the one that rose to prominence was that of the ancient evil eye curse, and the prophylactic talismans meant to ward it off. When the inhabitants crafted and wore these talismans, they found they could project them into the dream world. With time and practice, they would use these projections to shield and protect themselves.
