Augmented Dreams is an allegory of the modern mind (psyche) struggling to find balance between the roots of our ancestors and the modern world in a time of accelerating change. It is a palimpsest that takes place at the intersection between advanced technology, ancient myth, gaming and environmentalism.
Ben, a nature friendly virtual artist (world-weaver) and dream researcher follows a trail of darkness on an odyssey through different worlds of cyberspace to find a virtual art thief. Gordon, an MRI researcher, technophile and part time AI hunter seeks a cure for a mysterious web based sleeping sickness spreading throughout the population. Daniel, a recluse poet and Luddite struggles with having to use medical nanotechnology to cure his cancer but what he finds in the unconscious foundations of his biology is nothing less than a revelation that will change everything.
