The metaphor describing the relationship between consciousness and the sub-conscious can be applied to the relationship between protected and shared intellectual property. Dreams can be appropriated and influenced through light and sound, by various stresses throughout our days or by more direct methods as with Brion Gysin's dream machine. The effect is complete whether or not the desire to create it is overt. Piracy can be just that; an aggressive act of ripping someone's property, be it physical or intellectual, out from under them and making it your own. It can also take on the more subtle nature of the effect a blinking light or passing ambulance might have on the sleeper. Dreams help us to reexamine our waking lives in new innovative ways. Without dreams there is so much about ourselves that could go unrealized. In the universe of digital intellectual information, the same applies. Piracy is an integral part of exploration. Just as song writers, poets, and artists "steal" from one another and just as our dreams are focused thoughts from our subconscious, piracy moves our collective thought process. Sharing is caring.
