Resurgence of 16th Century upper-class fashion in (circa) 3000

Posted in Dream by Will on Saturday, December 8th, 2007 ~ 7pm


I dreamed of a future that was so far in the future that it seemed like the past. This future was in some respects simple – uncrowded, no apparent work. The sky was blue. Everyone wore the fashions of Marie Antoinette, dozens of people in bright dresses so colorful in the bright summer sun, walking down a white courtyard, with a stone mansion in the near-distance larger even than the Château de Versailles.

It was perhaps the year 3,000 or thereabouts, perhaps in the 3,100s. People were happy, and technology had apparently made lives as easy as the lives of the wealthy from the 16th century. But technology was essentially invisible by this point, hence I for a moment thought I was in the past, and not in a resurgence of the style of the 16th. It seemed that everyone was enjoying this, it was no longer relevant to think in terms of classes. It did seem, based on the expansiveness of the spaces, that the population must have diminished to a more balanced level.

As for myself, I was slightly suspicious of the environment, so I soon flew up and away, to check out other parts of the world. And other parts of the world were slightly creepy — there were different kinds of animals, including dinosaur-like creatures that blended in with trees. Though, houses were built near these, so perhaps they were herbivores or something. In any case it scared me when I flew into some woods without recognizing that there were dinosaur-sized lizards about.

    I read one of his books many many years ago, not sure which one. Did he see a 16th century future too?
