Patient Intervention Thread - Phillip


#22

Another thing I found interesting is the fact he heard a child cry. Not sure if this will become important, but it may considering they can hear fragments of the other dreamers.


#23

A child yes. Maybe a child is stucked too.


#24

Thank you so much for the transcript. I cannot access the dashboard on PS4 so it is good to at least be able to read what is happening.


#25

Haha you’re welcome Mac :grin:


#26

Philip and the other dreamer are wearing different exosuits. Thought it was worth mentioning.


#27

Sorry for asking… but what are we supposed to do after we gather enough info on Philip?


#28

This guy has low self esteem and does not like crowds…so why did he want to run a restaurant?
Or is this the result of failure?


#29

No, not really - he says he’s OK with people, but he doesn’t like THEM. And he’s useless as a mechanic.


#30

Philip:

#231187661T


#31

But he does seem to let his wife make the decisions.


#32

Is it odd he specifically mentions he left two days before Martin Luther King Day?

Edit: Jan 13th seems to be unremarkable.


#33

Numbers probably mean something…


#34

We need to figure out the activation code to move to the next step.


#35

I’m not able to connect on my phone. But, I can on my desktop.
Here are a couple screen shots for those that are on different platforms and can’t participate:

Main Screen:

Meet Phillip!!

Hope the photos aren’t too horrible. But- it gives y’all an idea of what’s happening.

2018/01/13 Got it!

Emily : Alright, some people can be pretty phased by being put in the spotlight. I suggest we continue like this to judge if he can adapt.
You : I suggest we try to make him comfortable
Emily : Alright. It’s his first time after all.
SIMULATION RESUMED
Emily : Don’t worry, they don’t exist, they are only part of the simulation.
Phillip : The simulation?
Emily : I know you don’t want to be here. You just need to trust me. I’m trying to get you out.
Phillip : I…I don’t understand.
Emily : Just be honest with me when I ask you questions. Deal?
Phillip : Only if you are honest with me, too.
Emily : Do you have questions for me?
Phillip : Are the spectators real?
Emily : As I said, they are virtual. Only to stimulate your mind.
Phillip : Thank you for the clarification. I was definitely worried.
Emily : What were you worried about?
Phillip : I know there are other people here. I can hear some of them.
Emily : What can you hear, exactly?
Phillip : I can’t hear anything clearly. I heard shouting. A child crying.
Phillip : I guess some of them found a way to speak together. I didn’t manage to do that myself though.
Emily : You were nervous about finally meeting them?
Phillip : I think I was just wondering what would be more maddening.
Phillip : Being scrutinized by people I know I’m stuck here with maybe forever.
Phillip : Or simply knowing that I could be forced to become an audience extra in their own interview simulation.
Phillip : Anyway, I’m glad they’re all fake. Ask any question you want.
Emily : Alright, Phillip. Can you tell us a bit about yourself?
Phillip : What do you mean by that? You want to ask simple questions or like…get all personal?
SIMULATION PAUSED
Emily : Where do we begin?
You : Personal questions
SIMULATION RESUMED
Emily : Let’s get personal.
Phillip : Well, my name’s Phil Moretti. Born and raised in New York City. Never left. I don’t know what else you want me to tell about myself. I’m really not interesting at all.
Emily : We’ll get to it, Phil, no worries.
Phillip : I get it.
Emily : Are you married? Do you have children?
Phillip : Two young boys. And a beautiful wife. I knew her since high school.
Phillip : She’s the one that asked me out!
Phillip : Damn, she must be raising hell to get me out of here right now.
SIMULATION PAUSED
Emily : So…married with children.
You : Inquire about his wife
SIMULATION RESUMED
Emily : So she’s still the one making the hard decisions?
Phillip : Yeah, she was always like that. That’s why I loved her.
Emily : Did she have to make some of those tough calls lately?
Phillip : Yeah…
Phillip : Not her best call to this date.
Emily : What happened?
Phillip : I don’t know if I want to talk about it.
SIMULATION PAUSED
Emily : I think we got something.
You : Respect his choice
SIMULATION RESUMED
Emily : Are you sure?
Phillip : Yep, definitely sure.
SIMULATION PAUSED
Emily : Maybe if we press him a bit…
You : Empathise
SIMULATION RESUMED
Emily : I know it’s hard for you to tell me all that but I need you to help me get you out of here.
Phillip : Damn it.
Phillip : …
Phillip : Alright, alright.
Phillip : I had this stupid dream, you know.
Emily : What are you talking about?
Phillip : My father owned a business, my grandfather before that. All self-made men.
Emily : Weren’t interested in taking back the family business?
Phillip : It was a garage. I’m not remotely good with my hands, I found it boring as hell. I wanted to do my own thing.
SIMULATION PAUSED
Emily : This is getting interesting.
You : Agree about the decision
SIMULATION RESUMED
Emily : It’s totally reasonable for people to want to pursue their dreams.
Phillip : Finally someone who gets me.
Phillip : For as long as I remember, I dreamed of opening a restaurant.
Emily : And how did it turn out?
Phillip : It was……fine, I guess, at the start.
Phillip : Lots of customers, I was constantly working.
Phillip : But, I mean…I was starting my own business, I knew it was risky, I knew that the workload would be terrible.
Emily : Was your wife supportive?
Phillip : She said that she trusted me.
Emily : You seem like you had a fine thing going.
Phillip : A fine thing indeed.
Phillip : I put all I had in it.
Phillip : Lost it all.
Emily : I’m terribly sorry.
Phillip : I had it coming, I guess. I jeopardized my family’s well being for this. Serves me right.
SIMULATION PAUSED
Emily : That’s rough. That poor man.
You : Inquire about causes
SIMULATION RESUMED
Emily : How did it come to this?
Phillip : What happened, you mean?
Phillip : I made some bad decisions.
Phillip : I think I wasn’t ready, but it doesn’t matter right now.
Emily : Is it really that simple?
Phillip : Yes, unfortunately.
Phillip : That’s all you’ll get from me for the moment. I need to rest.
Emily : Thank you Phil. We’ll talk more later.
