So, right before I woke up this morning, I had a dream about net neutrality...

...in the dream, I was in a room or office or such, and I heard a voice say "oh look, it's Ajit Pai."

Next thing I know, Ajit - who looks like a really young-20-something-Japanese-guy, NOT what the actual Ajit Pai looks like - comes up to me and sez: "Here, take this" as he hands me a packaged-in-a-plastic-bubble-black-disc which looks like a flat, circular refrigerator magnet about the size and thickness of a quarter.

He sez: "Stick this to your laptop" (I don't have one in real life, but I do in this dream) - "and it will play what you need to see."

The content from the black disc was a video of a woman sitting in a chair, in full left side profile, being stripped of her clothes by unseen forces - like powerful winds - and then it zoomed in on the left side of her face, which was covered by massive amounts of what appeared to be acne.

Not sure what it means, but it was fuckin weird! Kinda like a Dali crawling ants thing.

I usually don't remember my dreams, but this one was very memorable, in a disturbing way.

I did, however, think that a "digital magnet" device was a pretty cool idea.

Happy New Year.

1. Let's decode this

The woman sitting the chair being stripped of clothes is tantalizing. It's as tantalizing as the promise of the end of net neutrality making everything better. It's also a major distraction. It's only when you zoom in that you realize how horrible the end of net neutrality really is (when you are staring it in the face, so to speak).

There is another way to interpret this as well. Clothing is protection in the same way net neutrality is protection. Unseen forces are forces that are out of your control. The acne on her face can either be the damage that was inflicted by the repeal of net neutrality (the ripping off of the clothes) or, as above, the nastiness of a world without net neutrality.

4. WoW! Thanks for that, because now I don't feel so crazy...

...this "dream" or whatever was very startling!

I totally agree with that interpretation.

So far...

2. perhaps Ajit Pai is the evil face of the rethug party and the woman being stripped of her clothes is

representative of people, particularly women, being rendered powerless by tools like Pai; the horrible acne is the closeup to show how the dynamic of rethugs stripping away power from constituents is a disease that is spreading...

The disc represents the digitization of individuals -- we are each just a bunch of data.

The good news is that acne can be treated. Hopefully the disease of evil Rethugs can be "cured'


That's my take, anyhow --

6. After I posted, I thought about something similar

It's like sexual violence being equal to violence perpetrated on us by a government entity. The repeal of net neutrality lays us bare in front of the big corporations and ISPs getting paid to advertise their brands. The fact that it's a woman is probably down to the fact that all these harassment claims are floating around the news.

I like the idea of the disc being the digitization of people.
