Re: What would have happened after 10 hrs ?

((10*20*20*20*20)/24)/365 = over 182 years, or two and a half average lifespans. That's a long time to live alone. It would destroy him.

Re: Lucid Dreamer

"A note about the paralyzation [...]" I'll add my own story here while on the topic. After I "broke the lucidity seal," I began having regular sleep paralysis in the early mornings. For the longest time, I thought I was awake during the paralysis because it was so realistic. I couldn't do my go-to r...

Re: Top vs. Ring: Theories About the End

Yeah, the loop theory has some substance to it. Let's not forget, the movie starts at the end. Although, I wouldn't at all be surprised if Nolan hears about the theory and thinks "Woah, I didn't think about that."

Re: Why doesn't this theory get more love?

Think of the last scene when we watch the top spinning. Do you remember how the audience reacted to the screen cutting to the credits? Everybody freaked out! That final cliffhanger must have significance. Saying "Dom woke up from a dream on the plane" means this isn't a cliffhanger at all. The final...

Re: Just noticed something huge...

That's true! So in a dream within a dream, dieing wakes you up--but only up one level. I didn't take notice of that at the beginning. Nice find. However, I'm with Vader in that it doesn't apply to Fischer's inception dreams. Dom and the chemist makes it clear that while under heavy sedation, dieing ...

Pinch your nose with your mouth shut. Try to breath. If you can't, you're awake. If you can, you're dreaming. Works every time.

Re: Lucid Dreamer

3) i kept waking up throughout the night, or maybe i was dreaming that i was waking up, because i kept trying to hold on to my consciousness of the process Many of these are likely "false awakenings." You need to do a reality check every time you wake up. Eventually you'll do a reality check during...

Re: Lucid Dreamer

yea i heard somthing like if you jump in a dream, you might hang in the air and extra second or less Oh man, the scene where everyone's floating in the hotel: that reminded me so much of lucid dreaming. In one lucid dream, I decided to try to fly. I jumped up, and I simply floated above the floor a...

Re: Two Spinning Top Cliffhanger Interpretations

if Dom eventually does wake up, then he will wake up only a fraction of a second after Mal. This is good stuff. If we assume Mal and Dom's experiment into limbo compounds time similarly to how they say the levels compound in Fischer's inception (which could very well not be the case, but let's go w...

Re: Two Spinning Top Cliffhanger Interpretations

If that were the case, Dom wouldn't have opposed to when Eames was going to shoot Taito (they could've just woke him up out of limbo later on). And you think they planned to go to limbo all along. Absolutely not. They wanted to stay out of limbo. Only reason was when their subject went to limbo. It...
