Dreams in cyberspace were nothing like I’ve experienced before; they had none of the usual tropes of flying, falling, or getting chased. Instead, I casually walked through a series of mid-century landscapes. However, this time they were carved out of mathematical concepts - trigonometry, Fourier transforms, complex numbers, differential equations - all the stuff that does the heavy lifting for engineers. Walking through a differential equation was surreal; I forgot all the logical elements and experienced them instead. Rather than: “look over there, that’s an independent variable,” it was more like: “hey, that derivative feels partial,” like the winter sun through a window feels warm.
