So what is the actual experience going to be like? If we're interested, and if Dave doesn't have something else in mind (or wants suggestions): This is basically a very invasive surgical procedure on the brain, mediated through the nanobots and orchestrated by Leo's Heart Factory. The patient will be awake for the procedure. Administering dexmedetomidine or a similar sedative will happen first. If Jason has a doctor, or the Quill Foundation has a medical staff, Leo will want them on hand for this part. The sedative will have an effect on blood pressure, and other sedatives could affect respiration. I don't think Jason is on any medication, but Alycia might be... So imagine you're laying on your back, laying on a cold-ass metal gurney. There's a device on your index finger, measuring blood pressure. There's an anesthetist standing by, carefully measuring out a dose of some drug through an IV and into your arm. The needle hurt for a moment, but they gave you a sticker, and everybody loves stickers, even if you can't admit to it. Right now, the drug they're feeding into you makes all the pain go away. You're feeling happy and cooperative, dreamy but not delirious. Summer Skye Newman is hunched over a machine. She spares you a glance, smiles, and gives you a thumbs up (for both values of "you"). There's a monitor indicating neurotransmitter levels, and everyone else's eyes are glued to that. On the gurney next to yours is the person with whom you've shared adventures, conflict, and very mixed emotions about your respective fathers. Both of you have probably experienced blood transfusions on the field, as an emergency life-saving measure for somebody . So what is this? A memory transfusion. As the process starts, the room, the people, the situation, changes. Nothing really is any different, except your perspective . The brain naturally produces trace amounts of dimethyltryptamine, or DMT, "the spirit molecule", and a component in some cultures' shamanic tradition or religious beliefs. It's thought to affect the process of dreaming. Recreational use of DMT can lead to feelings of love, guilt, the dissolution of the ego, hearing music, falling into a void, the experience of contact with ephemeral beings, the opening of the gates of the self, and more. Right now, to help heal the swiss-cheese gaps in itself, your brain is producing DMT on overdrive. Right now, you are dreaming the most fantastically vivid dream you ever had. That's foreign memories, flooding over your mental landscape, leaving behind puddles of experience wherever it finds depressions to fill. Right now, you are about to crash through the comfortable lies and cruel self-taunts you tell yourself every day, and get a glimpse of yourself through someone else's eyes. Good luck.
