If it was Level 4 then kicks should have worked. Also Fischer wasn’t hooked up to any dream equipment so it would have been impossible for him to proceed along the linear Levels anyway. The only reason Cobb and Adriane would have gone after him would be if he was in a place where they couldn’t kick him out. Any of the Levels without heavy sedatives you can kick a person out. I hesitate to say “with heavy sedatives” because the rules regarding those and kicks are somewhat unclear. Cobb also recognizes it as Limbo too.Spurple wrote:I can't comment on Fischer, cause I still don't understand how he could come back to life after being killed. I thought it wasn't just because he was in "limbo," but because Mal had him trapped there. They had to get him back from Mal.Jarmel wrote:Yes the line “You can’t be kicked out limbo” was never said in the film but it’s certainly true. If they could be kicked out of Limbo then why would Cobb and Ariadne take the risk of even going into Limbo in the first place after Fischer? They could have just used the defibrillators and then kicked him awake.
But as I said, that's why I think the "limbo" that Fischer got sent to was really just level 4. That explains the time difference perfectly.You’re also being somewhat dramatic with the numbers. The 10 seconds it would take you to wake up and shove the person next to you would almost certainly not be some ridiculous 10 million years. Also before you say “How would you know what the time effect would be?”, there is certainly a correlation between the real world(and the levels) with Limbo. Look how long it took for the effects of the explosion and the defibrillators to kick in. It wasn’t anything like 10 years in Limbo but rather a few minutes at max.
The big threat of limbo is that it could be INFINITE. How could it be INFINITE if the time difference isn't that big of a deal?
Before I go any further, give me a realistic explanation for what level you think limbo is, time wise? Limbo time is about what dream level time? 5? 6? 7?
Yusef really just blurts out “It could be Infinite. I don’t know”. The only one who does know what Limbo is, is Cobb. Nobody else has measure the time effect in Limbo so the time effect might be something simple such as the previous Level you were on or it could even vary. Nobody in the movie measured it.
