Dream-Share Manual

Another very interesting update today surrounding the viral game for Chris Nolan's Inception. The always awesome Wired magazine was recently sent a tattered operations manual for something called the "Dream-Share." I think it took them some time to figure out what it was for, but beyond its connection to Inception, they have no clue. The manual contains multiple pages (examples below) for various "tactical employment procedures," like Environment Creation and Interrogation Techniques. However, it ends right at the PASIV Device Instructions, which is where this viral site picks up: But is there anything else?

Inception Viral - Dream-Share Manual

This is the first time we've ever seen or heard of this either, so we have no clue what it means. What's weird is that every page in the book has all of the text blacked out redacted, so there's nothing but visual clues. At first I thought it was just an old, outdated way of introducing the website, but there may be something more to this. Wired has scanned every page of the manual and you can read through the pages to look for clues if anyone's interested. To be honest, I think this is all just a unique, viral way of visualizing the procedures for entering dreams that we'll see in Inception. But who really knows? We'll keep you updated!

"The projections as they become aware will seek out and destroy the source of the projections" That's the one readable thing in the manual and I have no clue what it means.

Sounds like maybe a 'projection' is a dream creation...the projection becomes real enough to attack the creator maybe?

yeah, the dream images start to become hostile once they become self aware
