In a world where reality was too harsh, people escaped into the dream machines. These machines transported them to fantastical worlds filled with endless possibilities. However, the machines were powered by powerful hallucinogenic drugs, which made it hard for people to distinguish between the dream world and reality. Some became addicted to the dream world and could no longer function without it. The line between fantasy and reality became blurred, and many people lost touch with what was real. Eventually, the world became consumed by the dream machines, and it was impossible to escape the grasp of the fantasy world and the drugs that powered it.
