Thank you!

>>Great poem! The ending made me laugh, but also made me wonder.<<

I'm glad you like this.

>> What becomes of the infant minds? Do they live in the computers connecting the dreamers? <<

Yes, they live in the computers.

>> Are they harmed when the coma patients leave the dream? <<

No, they have their own independent existence.

>>How do they perceive the worlds of the dream-city and the larger world?<<

They would perceive the dream city as their home. The larger world ... may not seem fully real to them, just a place that sometimes sends messages.

>> Is it possible for the kids to move between their home city and the outside world? <<

No. They have a birth defect of being bodyless.

>> If nothing else, it'll give me something interesting to think about during the slow periods at work... <<

Re: Thank you!

Computer-run bodysuits like powered armour to let the computer-born visit and interact with the out of the computer world...

Re: Thank you!

That's a good idea, and something like it has been done in some settings. I don't think it will work in this one.
