Not a night has gone by this past week without me playing out a mission on Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3. This was the influence to my dream last night.
I was a new general for the Soviet side (side I've been playing recently) and they didn't trust me because I was an American. I swore I was loyal to them and that I would do anything they wanted me to. They put me on some paper pushing job and showed me to a desk. I decided to walk around rather than sit around and do nothing.
I found some room with a ton of computers and some people playing on them. This other general Zhan started questioning me and asked if I wanted to test my abilities against her. I said sure and it was over pretty quickly. I had crushed her and I asked if she wanted me to submit the results. She said no but I was told to by a superior officer.
They asked me how I knew so much and I quoted The Art of War by Sun Tzu. I personally have never read it but I guess I had in my dream. They were both impressed and Zhan asked if I could teach her more. This is where I woke up.
I'm inspired to read The Art of War now. Has a dream ever inspired you to do anything?
