Inception Meme by ihni Inception Meme by ihni
Original is here: [link] by :iconradioactivemongoose:

Okay, I've been living in this fandom for weeks now, and it's starting to drive me just a little bit insane.

Inception. Movie. Go see it, if you haven't seen it already. I'm SURE you'll figure out an ending/interpretation that fits your current mood. Me, I'm alternating between three interpretations, and there are two more that might work as well ... I'll have to try them out next time I'm watching the movie.

Because yeah, I'll watch it again. And then again. And again.

I can't WAIT 'til the DVD.

Anyway. In about two weeks, I've seen the movie twice and read hundreds of fanfics and theories. Movie ... vs fanfics. Canon ... vs fandom. Yeah, I'm a little confused about what's "real" or not, now. WHICH IS ONLY FITTING!

I'm going on vacation now. No internet for a couple of days. I think that's a good thing.

Ehm. Bye.

Very funny and amusing meme.

I do believe I can answer some of those questions for you. If you 'die' in limbo you merely wake up. As with Cobb and Mal, Aiadne and Fiscer, and then Cobb and Saito. The shock of practically dying, or almost dying, woke them up.

He said that the spent years building limbo together. That means that it was both of their ideas going into building. Also, it was said in the movie that Limbo is the final destination. Where one goes when they have gone to far into the dream realm. And since it was technically surrounded by water, and I have read where someone described it as akin to an Iceberg. I believe Limbo is infinite. What Cobb had was merely an island, and since both he and Mal had gone into the same dream, they both shared the same island. So there could quite possibly be thousands of others who have died in their sleep and gone to Limbo. They are all just on separate islands, divided by a vast expanse of water.

Another point that reaffirms that is that Cobb washed up once again on a beach, but the lay out was different. His dream world with Mal crumbled during the storm, so he must have 'drifted' to Saito's version of Limbo, the infinite nothing. Which was more oriental based in appearance.

Why there are no projections is truly a good question and one that I cannot conceive an answer for.

Hope you found these slightly helpful in your quest for answers.

Thank you for your answers, but as with a lot that has to do with Inception, the answers give birth to even more questions, like; if you merely wake up if you 'die' in limbo, then why was everyone so terrified of ending up in limbo? Like "oh no, if we die on this level we'll end up in LIMBO!" ... like it was the end of the world. Limbo seemed like a pretty neat place to me - you could create ANYTHING there - especially if you just wake up again if you 'die' there.

And so, if they dreamed up a boat in limbo, could they go visit other islands? And was it possible to dream up PEOPLE in Limbo? If they could dream up everything else, people should have been a piece of cake, right? But then, how would they know that it was "real" people they met when they went to those other islands, in stead of people they just dreamed up?

... I wonder if Limbo is like Earth, like, a round planet?

Now you've made me wonder about more things about this movie! XD But it's what I love about it - there doesn't seem to be any definitive (spelling?) answers. There are only interpretations, and I very much enjoy hearing people's interpretations. So thank you for taking the time to give me your point of view. :)

Because once in Limbo it becomes increasingly difficult to tell the difference from reality. Except in reality, jump off a building and you die. Permanently. So Limbo was pretty much the 'Ultimate Confusing Mystery.' People are generally afraid of the unknown. Cobb was really the only one in the group who had ever been to Limbo, where as it was a mystery to everyone else and it is not like they could ask someone. Seeing as how Cobb was practically one of the very few to ever escape and he was touchy on the subject.

People are complicated with all their minute details, their flaws, strengths, weaknesses, personalities. Despite Limbo being describe as infinite there probably were some rules and limitations. Though not many.

Now that would be interesting indeed.

Having questions to wonder and answer is just another great feature about the movie. Right down to the 'end' it keeps you guessing and I doubt anyone will ever find all the answers.

You are welcome, I liked many of your opinion's as well. They really helped me to see somethings from a different angle.

I would think so, people are still very much interested in Inception. What do you mean with a fic challenge?
