I dreamed of a person who was a holodeck type hard hologram where he could be touched, I do not know his name but for this let us call him Randal. He was a companion to the person in the house and he started being having an existential crisis and a technician was called in. Contrary to the usual robot or AI technician in stories this guy was reluctant to go along with Randal’s request to be reset to his factory original settings to eliminate his emotional turmoil. Instead the technician said, “I hate to do that, to erase everything you have become. Can we just try to make you feel better instead of going all the way to a reset?” Randal agreed and the tech set to working on Randal’s brain, which was something like a parlor organ with a covered/locked keyboard. It was interesting that the tech wanted to negotiate with the hologram instead of just doing what he thought right.

The thing is that I know how often dreams are made up of parts or whole of works of fiction so I am wondering if I have seen this friendly to the AIs under his care tech elsewhere.

A completely pointless milestone! I have more than 11,500 songs in my computer library currently. Late last year I decided to listen to all of them again (or for the first time). I passed 10,000 today. That is about 576 hours of music listened to with 81 hours to go (more or less).

And then I will probably start adding albums to my library again.
