technology representing some kind of rebirth?

Nolan dreamt of a little monkey living happily in his community with his animal friends.

He saw a stream, and they all wondered where it came from.

 

The little monkey followed it, and at the end (or beginning) he found a waterfall...

 

And behind the waterfall was a great city with tall buildings and flying vehicles...

 

He saw a golden chair with an all-encomposing chamber where the head was to rest.

Surrounding this circular dome, there were brightly colored patterns and flashes and landscapes.
