I dreampt I took a jewish girl from a toy store out to lunch on her break. I could smell her, and it was a new smell... never before smelled by me, maybe never before smelled by humanity. When I said "oh my god" regarding the smell, she got angry. To be expected, I suppose. I took her to an ancient, fancy, expensive part of town, several stories up, with lots of green metal sculpture/architecture.
I am not suprised my brain invented a beautiful ancient city, with history that I could remember. I am not suprised my brain invented a history of me going to visit the toy store, scoping her out several times before asking her to lunch. My brain is a supercomputer, with history revision capabilities, and it can create almost any impression. I am just suprised at the smell. I am nearly certain complex smells are composed of simple variables... but I have not studied smells like I have colors, I don't know what those variables are, or how they're arranged. The girl's smell resembled fruit (of an unknown variety), but like her body produced it. What part of the smell indicates human-glandular manufacture? I don't know. Maybe it's just an implication, like it was implied that I'd been to the toy store before... but it smelled like part of the smell.
I hope to dream of a new color someday. I know all the colors composed of variables my standard vision system can assimilate... my brain would have to invent a new variable... I believe it can. If so, I'll se a whole range of new colors... but I'd need a new set of eyes for these colors to be useful for waking perception. Whatever, irrelivant. The dream was very pleasant and detailed, and I wish I could share it.
