I am in a huge, open-ceiling observatory-type place. There is no telescope present though; just a massive hole above us. I am seated in (and strapped in) an upright dentist-type chair, surrounded by 5 or 6 other people who are connected to wires plugged into a large power-source. Swirling, flashing multi-colored lights flash in all directions. A scientist appears and explains how we are part of an experiment which will attempt completely stopping time. If the experiment goes awry and fails, everyone participating will be killed instantly by electric shock. If all goes well, each participant will receive significant compensation. The first attempt is not a success, and everyone dies at that moment. Somehow we are all brought back to life, and a second attempt is made. This attempt is successful. Time stops. Everything around us ceases to move. Science trumps logic. And we are all apart of this miraculous feat.
And then, I wake up.
