Today I was sitting on the system studying when a wave of sleep surrounded me. Forced by it I went to bed.
And I saw I am a teenager again, and just as in this lifetime I am very naughty going to all places I am not supposed to go. And added as icing on the cake, I have a twin brother (just-like-me in nature) and he is also my best friend. In this lifetime he is a very good friend and my mentor.
I live on some planet like Earth (or maybe Earth itself), It has much more water than what it has now and our small country gets people from other countries coming and going through small ships. So in the dream I somehow in a lazy afternoon, go on top of a secluded building, I love going there as I love to see the horizon. Today I am alone, on that top building, there is an isolated system (it is a discarded Apache server, left there by someone, and is still in working condition, I and my brother have been trying to hack into it.
I come down waiting for my brother to tell him the adventure. As usual, we first have a sibling fight, he telling me why I went alone, but soon the adventure overtakes us both, as we realize we are living in a holo-suite. All on our ship are living in the impression they live on land.

How many such ships would be there?
Those who come to us on occasions, do they too live on a Holo-Ship/land?
The size of our ship cannot have so many people, so those strangers we have seen on roads, whom no one we know talks to, who do not wave to us, or pass us the ball when it is near them, are they too holographic, created just to give us illusion that there are many of us!!!
