I had a dream the other night that a stranger came up to me and said, "There's been an accident. It's ... The Internet."
Let's put aside for a moment the Passions caliber of my subconscious. What would be the proper response to The Internet's accident? Should I have offered to feed The Internet's dog while The Internet recovers? Maybe water The Internet's plants? Bring a lasagna to The Internet's family?
I don't know what this dream means, and I'm glad I wasn't doing any of this psychological stuff in the heyday of Freud. Sometimes a melodramatic dream about the www is just a melodramatic dream about the www.
