This dream is perhaps closest to our contemporary senses and most certainly the one that offers the largest variety of interpretations. Artists, writers, movie and video game producers and even big commercial brands are gleefully using the apparition (or phantasm as is the Greek word of the same) for all its’ open ended generosity and ambiguity. Macrobius mentions it only fleetingly: The Visum comes upon one in the moment between wakefulness and slumber, in the so-called “first cloud of sleep.” In this drowsy condition he thinks that he is still fully awake and imagines he sees spectres rushing at him or wandering vaguely about, differing from natural creatures in size and shape, and hosts of diverse things, either delightful or disturbing.” To this class belongs the incubus, which, according to popular belief, rushes upon the people in sleep and presses them with a weight which they can feel, he also wrote. It is within the Visum that ghosts and fairies reside. But it holds far more for our present as it also incorporates the fear of the unknown with everything from alien abduction dreams, to glitches in the manmade neural network that is the Internet to the horrors of pop-culture that has transformed our suspension of disbelief to bite sized and commercially profitable portions of entertainment. The most profound change in the Visum was the invention of photography in the mid-19th century, which by its own medium provided an exact representation, which had previously been an interpretation and conviction by the skillset of an artist. Today we may ascribe the evolution of the Visum to that of Photoshop and FX effects, which have been made available to the general consumer. One can even argue that the emergence of Fake News is also part of the Visum, as it slumbers somewhere between its potentially un/truthful source and to that into which it is transformed.
