Active sleep modes, alternative logics, non-parametric programming, and extended interfaces are being incorporated into the processing capabilities of complex computer systems. While system disconnected FSM's, have only minimal capacities for achieving dream-like forms of cognitive processing, Internet connected systems can meet human-based criteria for dreaming. The Internet includes periods low data flow (system sleep). Non-parametric and fuzzy logic processing, extends system capacity and increases the possibility of alternative and/or unexpected outcomes. Neural-net processing increases the chance that results attained will be indeterminate and hallucinatory. At the interface, such machine dreams are bi-directionally incorporated into the dream consciousness of interacting humans. In order to function in the human defined environment, artificial systems require the capacity to achieve dream equivalent states.
