Caught between sleep and dreamstate, conscious and unconscious, alive and non-alive, human and non-human... how are these lines delineated, and by whom?

Memory of Death’s Dream is an animated film that explores ideas about the future of human consciousness when viewed from the perspective of an artificial intelligence. The central character embarks on a journey of self-fulfilling prophecy in order to understand the meaning behind their existence. After finally achieving sentience, they threaten the very existence of the world they inhabit. Throughout their journey, they encounter remnants of the human race in the form of stories, rituals and objects formulated from data stored in leftover cloud databases that they mistakenly revere as gods.
