Dreamtime

Can stress-disorders be cured through dream-sharing–scientifically trading sleep dreams with a person with a similar or an opposite disorder?

What if time-travel tourism allowed future citizens to observe a past event–to follow their great great grandmother on her first date with their great great grandfather–silently and invisibly (as the limits of the technology dictate), guided by historians?

What if we somehow caught these time-touring ghosts monitoring us, are private moments on public stages? What rules would be needed to govern common decency?

Our past, travel and dreaming.

    When I grow up, in the distant sci fi future, I want to be a dream scriptwriter for lucid dreamers. I will interview them, research their lives, toss in a bit of psychology, leaven with art, and serve them scripts for problem-solving, catharsis, entertainment, what have you. Dream sharing and time travel would be useful too!
