Dom, Robert, Eames, Arthur, Mal and Saito. First letters spell "DREAMS". If you add Peter, Ariadne and Yusuf, the whole makes “Dreams Pay”, which is what they do for a stealing from dreams. Found while browsing; hope this isn't a repost!! :roll:

This is trivia that we've known ever since the movie was released.

One of the marks of a great film is that viewers continue to make discoveries in it--discoveries that are new to them, if not to others.

If there's not already a thread about something (say, the DREAMS initials) on the first few dozen pages of a site, what's wrong with bringing it up for discussion?

It's a common known piece of trivia (here at least).

I tried to follow most of topics in Inception Sub forum but I had no idea about this DREAMS PAY trivia. Hm, that means I have to go deeper :) Anyway, great found and it is overally great that filmakers care to add such a small funny bits. For some this is useless and for some it extends cinematic magic :)

So, for Interstellar, we will need programming language from another dimension to encode hidden message hiding in the names? 8-)
