The WDYM, in short, was a shopping-mall sized machine which would somehow gather the latent energy in every dream by every man, woman, and child within a 5 mile radius, which would then be used as a cleaner, safer version of more conventional power plants. This energy would then be used to power an exceptionally large virtual game world which would be based partially on the ideas encoded within the captured dream energy.
