Joining the Facebook Billionaires Club
Inception on Amazon
Dreams are only Dreams
On some super cold evening in 2013 a little after New Years time. You had joined Facebook for the very first time, you receive a very important message in your FB inbox. This message was prompted by one of them cool status update's, stating that "You're the 1 Billionth member to have joined Facebook", and a big fat word of Congratulations! followed it, as you think to yourself "holy crap! is it even possible".
Of course you're dreaming and floating on "Cloud 10" right now, but that's besides the point, its such an intense dream state you're in, with your eyes rolling backwards into deep, and you have no idea its not a true reality that has appeared to have just occurred on your Facebook account. Totally blinding you from that fact that you've had one all along "oh dreams do that to us sometimes, don't they." rem sleep
Now carrying onwards into this FB dream mode of a fantasy, your eyes immediately pop out of your head onto the floor. You then pick them up thinking you're in a beetle juice movie or something, because beneath such a status report it says your the lucky member who just received a 1 billion dollars FB sweep stakes, that nobody ever knew about.
You instantly pass out crashing your forehead onto the floor, and your head roles off, you then are submerged into a brief comma state for a minute or so, when you awake like Leonardo DiCaprio did several times in the movie, in and out of one outrageous dream after the next. You're blown away by all of this FB dreaming action, thinking to yourself that this must be the real deal, and that you just became a Billionaire, Wow! Inception
The fact of the matter is, even though you may have thought you've woken up, no way Jose Canseco, you actually still sound asleep in your 1 bedroom apartment sweating up a storm, and still don't realize your dreaming. Now, your deep sleeping dream takes you to yet another imaginative zone once again.
You awake out of your second sleep into a padded room with Facebook icons, and images of Nicki Minaj, and you quickly turn your head to the right to visualize a naked picture of Lady Gaga, "Yikes that was a rough one", you think to yourself, and then as your eyes begin to auto scroll back towards the left, you see more Facebook paraphernalia, with some cool Twitter tweedy bird stickers. There's also some really huge true to life size Angry Bird's, and they're all fighting one another in a pink outlined platinum diamond studded cage (I'm not sure if its Nicki Minaj's or Lady Gaga's pets), they're yelling annoyingly loud, and luckily for your poor ears they stop after a minute or so.
When, suddenly a huge wide screen virtual holodeck (Doesn't exist yet) like monitor screen slides into view right in front of your face, and you get stunned a bit, but you cannot move your hands, fingers, toes, legs, of torso. Just your head, lips and eyes can move for some odd reason. "Am I paralyzed", you think to yourself, "Is this for real", but again you believe it to be true reality, and especially after what happens next.
Hail to the King!
Suddenly from nowhere, King Zuckerberg appears aka Mr. Mark himself, and your super trilled to see him, and so anxious to speak with him, and hear him speak. This anxiety has caused a pool of sweat to rush down your temple, and it won't stop poring.
"Welcome to the Facebook Billionaires Club, a place where where only the richest geeks get to have their way with things, plan weddings anywhere we choose, and purchase vast amounts of real life stock, that gets sold to the silliest of bidders." King Zuck! Spiels out from his hologram of a digital face as shown in the initial images of this article (Scroll back up to the top of the web page if you missed it, LOL).
You are speechless, and simply stare at his image, with that huge glowing crown of Illumination he has on, with a really fat FB symbol engraved in the center of it. The next thing you know, you get sucked into your holding chair, and like in The Matrix movie, you get turned into some weird looking virtual slime, and sucked into fiber optic wires from Verizon Fios. The funny thing though about it all, is that you can visualize them singular laser beams flying back, and fourth at mock speed right beside you, and you can sense it all as if its somehow adjoined to your strong yet out of control beating pulse, and heart rate.
Condo Sky Scraping Apartment - Feeling like NEO
This entire dream experience is far out indeed, and way to much to take in but its not over yet, not by far. Jumping back in and head first, you're entirely grey and ultra gooey substance of an existence gets reconfigured, one molecule at a time, into this new person, with a cyber kinetic style of blue glow for a body now, and hot yellow hair, like Nicki Minaj has from time to time.
This seems so fun to you and you giggling now and cannot stop, plus your so anxious to find out what's going to happen next. A door swings open, and you can actually sense everything around you now, as if your connected to everything as a single entity. "Is this what being a FB Billionaire is like", you think to yourself, "and if so can I just think of something to make it appear".
Your feeling that NEO effect right about now, it feels quite magical indeed, and so you start thinking about being outdoors, and flying in the air like you've done many times in your dreams as a child. Suddenly your body begins to tremble like a rocket ship that's shaking off of its rocker. You lift high up off the floor in that intensely cool new roof top skyscraper apartment your in, and blast through the window without touching the glass, not one spec of glass shatters at all.
Then for a fraction of a millisecond of time, your flight status is maintained, until you hear the ringing of bells faintly at first, and then it begins to get increasingly much louder. Its not no ordinary bell sounds though, these bells sound like huge Congo Bongo gongs, and they're so annoying, the sound waves knocks you out of the air, and you free fall, like an anvil to strike the floor super hard.
The Rude Awakening
Hitting the floor head first, you awaken in your real home, and your head didn't fall off this time. You feel a huge lump on your forehead this time, and begin to realize that this is your actual one bedroom apartment again. You look up, slowly stand after shaking your head twice, and look towards your Windows XP computer desktop.
You've been logged into Facebook all night long, and after that really crazy dream of a fantasy, more like a nightmare how it ended, you're slightly afraid to approach the PC. You take your time getting to the monitor screen dragging your feet, and notice there's a new status blinking on your message inbox. You then think to yourself, "Was that really a dream, and why is Facebook giving me a inbox status." Hmmm......
The mind can dream up the darndest of things, Don't ya think!
