This panel, besides being inspired by the Himba, was also inspired by this Iqgirha, or Xhosa traditional healer, whom I met in our Eastern Cape. She’ll read your dreams, and might give you a surprisingly accurate analysis of where your mind is at.

It amazes me how many AI intellectuals dismiss dreams as ‘non empirical’. That shouldn’t matter! Everything in our psyche affects our thoughts, which affect our actions, which certainly are empirical.

As we hurtle towards amplification, of both the good and the bad, brought by AI, and as some of us begin to ponder AI Ethics, hadn’t we better start getting to know every little thing about our psyches much better? And surely dreams are a good place to start?
