"The machine thinks.

"We trained it using huge volumes of data, taken from scans of normal brain activity. But it's too predictable, too rational; it lacks imagination, capriciousness, soul. For that, we need data from a different, much more subtle source.

"We need dreams."

— Professor Alia Gold
