A Cave full of the Worst Dreams Ever

In my dream, somewhere in a remote part of the world, we found a cave full of the worst dreams ever. The dreams people had that led them to instigate great evil. Words flew around the cave, words and fragments of words. "six million". "enslave". "killing fields" "manacle". "golgotha". "rwanda". "inquisition".

Before human beings do evil things, they dream them, they imagine them. This cave is full of all the worst things people have ever dreamt of.

It's best left alone. We know the outcomes and stories of those dreams only too well. This is a cave of memory, not of threat.

It's the other cave we need to find. The one that contains the dreams people have yet to dream.
