http://movies.yahoo.com/feature/buzz-log-the-end-of-inception.html If you havent seen Inception and plan on doing so, dont read this thread I saw the movie tonight, it was amazing. now, in this article many people believe that the top doesn't stop spinning and he is still in a stage of dreaming. if this is true, even though he and the old man "killed" themselves to get out of limbo (the 4th stage of dream), does it mean it wasn't his dream to begin with and his wife was right about reality? I'm going to see it again, but I'm just confused with if the top falls at any point (which means he was in reality) and then he brings himself back to the plane which he is on in reality how it could be anything but reality. since the top was his wifes, could it possibly be that it had no bearing on judging reality and dreaming in the first place?
