June 8, 2011Just a few quick notes after watching Inception last night. First, whoever wrote it knew what they were writing about. The wife's emotions, the use of totems, environmental influences on dreams, and many other concepts were right on. I think someone would have to be an experienced lucid dreamer to know those things, or else they did their research very well. One of the few things the movie didn't show is that any experienced lucid dreamer can conjure up more powerful things than machine guns and grenade launchers. I suspect they had to do that because if you're all-powerful in a movie, that doesn't make for any suspense. And I suppose if you're sharing a dream world, everyone dreaming should have access to the same weaponry.
