Inception | Leonardo DiCaprio | Marion Cotillard

I went to see Inception, which was recommended to me by alywaibel.  Excellent movie! I liked how they changed ‘dreams’ — as Toltecs do in the ‘dreaming attention’, although you don’t need all that equipment to do that. What I liked best, however, was the end of the movie when Cobb after reuniting with his family spins his totem to make sure he is not ‘dreaming’ anymore. But we can’t see the outcome, which implies that perhaps life is but a ‘dream’. . .

Regard this fleeting world,

as a star at dawn, a bubble in a stream,

a flash of lightning in a summer cloud,

a flickering lamp, a phantom and a dream.

–Buddha’s Diamond Sutra

Random thought is a trap. Pay attention! It is a dream.

The dreamed dreams the dreamer.
