Inception – Wonderful Movie, Totally Confusing. Did Any Of You Fully Understand It?

Okay, so if you’re like most people out there, chances are you’ve seen Inception. And if you haven’t, don’t worry, I’m not going to give away any spoiler alerts. But even though I saw it, paid attention, and sat through the entire thing, I’ve got a confession: I don’t get it.

I mean, I get the gist of it. I get the whole implanting an idea in someone’s brain thing. I get the general story. But there’s also a lot that I just don’t understand.

And I don’t think I’m the only one who feels this way either. But before I go any further, for those who haven’t seen it, check out the trailer. It’s really good.

YouTube Preview Image

This movie toys a lot with reality and dreams and the blending of the two so yes, there are parts that get a little tricky. I’m not saying I didn’t like the movie. I loved it. And I really recommend you go see it, but just don’t expect to get a clear cut Disney beginning, middle and end.

But here’s my big question for you. Do you think this is possible? How secure are our minds and consciousness? Is it possible for someone to penetrate our minds and take and give ideas? It’s a slightly unnerving topic but I wanted to get your opinions on this.

Drop a comment and tell me what your interpretation of the movie was and how weak or strong is the security of our mind.

I’m really excited to get a discussion going on about this. I usually don’t care for the big Hollywood blockbusters but this one really surprised me.

    I admit , Inception was a good Movie , im not sure if its totally Sane though to say its actually possible ,( like dreaming withindreaming) , its something like the Matrix series , which makes up something which can be thought of but not felt.

    I believe our mids are as open to be read like a book by someone whos been in close proximity like a partner or parent , then its possible to predict what one would do in certain situations. I believe mind reading is possible and can be done but not ordinarily , Trancendental meditation is one of the known techniques whereby this is possible. I have tried to read people ( dont do it anymore) .So i would say itsquite possible to implanyt ideasinto people.Also mind reading is possible.

    Hi Michael, I have not seen Inception but will now get it. It looks great. I work in emotional intelligence and work with clients on there belief systems. Yes I totally believe that our minds are open to influence by others all the time and because we have no natural fire wall and virus checking systems we can be influenced by both positive intent and negative intent. All my life I have battled with my own inner script telling me that this is good and that is bad. I will look at the film with very open eyes and give you feed back once I have seen it. Be amazing!

        there is a personal firewall, it just has to be tuned to it to work properly. It's kinda like those auric vision things and bunch of everything else, you already have the "ability" or whatever, they just need to be tuned to give the maximum power. There are lots of different techniques for that ranging from yoga to some kind of shamanism, chinese tai chi things ext.., and actually theres some in the bible too. There's lot of mentalists and psychics at these days who I promise will find stuff about your life and can implement their ideas if you dont know how to watch out for that.. And talking 'bout is it possible for someone to penetrate our minds and give ideas?, I say yes for basing it only to my knowledge of tv-industry.. commercial-tv.. Even that movie has influenced your mind, and in many ways I promise? Do you remember the music on the film? I bet you dont remember even a note, but thats one of the most mind influencing powers in movies ext.. And thats only one.. But if you think about the other half of the story can someone take your idea? First of all, you have to get the idea.. And when you do, it's very possible that you give it away yourself..

        • Persta
          August 30, 2010 | 11:48 am

          afterall I believe that "other side"of yourself is giving and taking ideas to you and from you.. Divide yourself and see it yourself.
          Actually just remembered that there has been some study to the implementing ideas part and it gave some positive reactions, but of course it couldn't have any scientific bases 'couse they couldn't measure the effect…

    First off, I was not a fan of the movie. It felt like a Matrix knock off. There were so many more wonderful ways they could have gone with imagination and creation of dream state realities. Although not confusing to me, it focused on so many complexities, rather than a "good strong story/plot". Just my opinion.

    On to the question… The power of suggestion is so strong. I felt the movie made this much more complex than it really is. Really, is it so difficult to communicate in a way that makes someone think that it was "their" idea, "their" concept? I can say, my Mother is a pro at this, I am not even close :) She is good at getting people to think, to reason through to a conclusion with little effort. Even Hermetics suggests to adhere to that which is subtle through care and wisdom.Could this be the begining of an idea, the creation of something… everything, every goal, every result stemming from one little thought, idea, seed… and then carried on the wind (wavelengths through conciousness) to bring your idea into fruition. Does this make us creators of our Universe, is that blasphemy…

    Well, I've rambled on enough!

    Hi Michael, I saw the film and loved it !
    I do think its possible to plant ideas in someones mind – BUT – its upto that person – to execute them or no – as I think – that each one of us is in control of our mind – unless you are under deep hypnosis or on drugs – so if you are grounded and aware – nobody can really *make* you do things – as per their whims and fancies – wouldnt it defeat the whole purpose of *free will*
    Just my thoughts – I may be completely off the mark -

      My problem is how to stop compulsive thinking. Detach from my mind and attach with consciousness or Being. Not worried about inception or implanting of ideas is non-issue.

    The movie was quite interesting in away since it is an exention of guided meditation and hypnotism. Concepts we know are powerful mind tools for making feel better about themselfs at a subconcious level which transposes into consious action for the good of the person. What it will not do is get secrets out of you. You still have a guard under hynotism and that is free will so you will not do anything you do not want to do that goes against this guard. If you could get round the guard by use of drugs then that could be a different matter that is morally wrong.

  6. Whitemare
    August 4, 2010 | 7:41 am

    Yes, it is possible to influence another mind. But……it is very hard indeed to influence someone to go counter to their own moral values. A weak personality is easier to influence than a strong one. By strong, I mean one with a solid sense of self, a personal good of right and wrong. Not necessesarily a good person, just one with a definite identity, and not just ego either.
    I have not seen the film. I will make a point of it, for I love tearing apart the premise on which films are based. Deep impact? Physics says that if they'd left the damn asteroid alone it would have missed Earth. It was the change in trajectory that caused the catastrophe, but I digress.
    Most people who have trained enough and studied enough to be able to directly and instantaneously affect another person's mind who have a big moral dilemma in actually doing so.

    Isn't that what hypnotism is all about? You "plant the seed, that when you hear a bell sound, you will cluck like a chicken". I have not seen the movie, but I think it is similar to hypnotism, except you aren't furnishing the solution. You are encouraging finding a solution. Once the solution is found, the idea is "harvested". I think could be possible to a degree.

    Through meditation I've made things happen, 1/2 hour of concentration on all the positive things related to cooking bread made my sister and some neighbors start cooking bread. Putting my thought at stand by after entering a bus, coming back to into physical consciousness, the first thing I sensed was the presence of a friend living on the bus route, when we passed his home he entered the bus and we enjoyed the bus ride together, this happened 3 times in a row with different people, last time the friend didn't live near the bus route and I first concluded that the two other incidents were coincidences, but when he entered the bus I no longer doubted, but asked whether I was predicting the future or whether I was creating the future. I learned that I was creating the future, and it scared me, what damage might I do to other people, making them do things they didn't intend to do? I was told not to worry, but also not to misuse the gift, if misused the "backfiring" would be severe. Later on in life I've made many things happen through meditation/thoughts. Namaste

    Of course our minds energy and imagination are what create, but the greater your mind has ability the more you need to filter all of your decisions through your heart. A mind is a terrible thing to listen to lest it be refined with the love that feeds its capabilities. On that note which is surely contrary to popular belief no one can control your heart, because there are so many we do love, and even more we need to love. This is not to say one cannot pull your heart strings, but one string, regardless of the diameter of it compared to others you love, does not compare to the enormous ball of Love you have to give. So love all, all the time give it out without need to rhyme, no condition or ill intent and our daze will clear as our rebirths vent. We need not die to resurrect . Our time has come to see our power is endless if with love we shower each moment or chance of any single circumstance. The only thing we can control in any way is our own response our "PMA" Positive Mental Attitude. So send out the thoughts we can all feel them well, especially if it was from your heart to tell.
    Hope you enjoy a tune or two and pass them along if you do. Peace & Compassion be my Only Actions for Love & Laughter be my Souls Lone Attraction. "MySoulAria" of Peace! Soul☯Fish122469 p.s.

    Hi, have not seen the film.I have no doubt how easily peoples minds can be influenced. We are all connected to one universal mind & are part of it. See how group meditation effeccts things. Check out cia ,mi5 and other agencies how they have screwed with peoples minds. Check out common purpose in the uk they use nlp to to implant ideas in peoples subconcious. There are many things going on covertly by the so called powers that be. The media is the most common . Also advertising subliminals. So keep focused on love and the good things. J J.

      What a horrible comparison. Even if you didn't like president Bush, (and either you are not an American or have no education), but to compare a mass murderer of millions of people to a president of the US, is utterly heinous. This could be an example of mind influencing. You are parroting something which the extreme left axpouses.

      Also, what seems to you as good, may not seem so to others. Mother Theres, for instance, fought against the possibility of divorce in Ireland.

    Hi Michael, I watched the film inception and the time dilation figures, at least for the first level, are reasonably correct. Our minds are wide open to outside influence. How do so few, hold most of the wealth and control so many? The word 'program' in the sentence ' your TV program guide', speaks volumes.

    The word spell is used to de-scribe a process in language and magic. Its no coincidence that a process used to program thought is called spelling and those that repeatedly read sentences through wrote learning, become sentenced. There is little or no mention at school of the 'internal' dialogue and its effects of behaviour.

    inception makes a process that has been going on inside us all since learning to spell, look complicated and hard to achieve, when in reality mind control is happening on a day to day basis.

    I spent the best part of 40 years as a Psychiatric nurse and later as a Psychotherapist. Changing minds is very possible, knowing when and how to do so is important. Clients who have fears, phobias and obsessions are very happy to get rid of these.

    Where do you think good (or bad) ideas come from???

      Hello Charlotte. I find your question "where do you think ideas come from" very interesting. I have been doing a little research on the web and asking doctors and others with special knowledge of the brain and mind but no one can give me an answer as to where do thoughts and ideas originate. Somewhere in the brain an electro chemical reaction takes place that eventually results in a thought but what originates the electro-chemical reaction? What decides to initiate an electro-chemical reaction? Is it our conciousness?

    I have been watching a series of youtube videos that relate to Hypnosis and NLP influencing, and boy ! A person even was influenced to believe red was black ! Ouch ! Without a deep trance ! So there is the possibility that a lot of what appears as spiritual evolution might just be suggestion and mind conditioning…. Need to research further.

    I have not seen the movie, but to answer your question, read PSYCHIC DISCOVERIES BEHIND THE IRON CURTAIN by Sheila Ostrander and Lynn Schroeder (the original 1970 edition). They do discuss the possibility of remote control of another person's mind. However, this book was republished after the Iron Curtain came down to include things they learned since their original book was published. It also included a condensed version of their original book, but htat version failed to include one of the most important paragraphs that had to do with an experiment in which a weak magnetic field was appkied to an aquarium and the fish were found to respond to it. That was an important clue, but even the autthors missed its significance. ALSO consider reiki which can work at a distance but apparently requires that the reiki master has a photo of the target person or can talk to the that perons on the phone. Room does not permit me to mention any more at this time, but this idea must be taken very seriously.

    I am of the opinion that 95% of our reactions to every day events comes from the subconscious mind. The things we have in our subconscious mind dictate our reaction. Therefore, it is not only possible, but is a reality that we can be affected, influenced and coerced by mind intrusion. We do have the power to fight back, by training our minds to think in a certain way, ( Wallace D. Wattles, "The Science of getting Rich"). Life is a series of battles, and we must be constantly vigil against outside influence. Essentially, we choose what is reality for ourselves, and perception is the key.

    • Phoenix
      August 10, 2010 | 8:45 am

      "fighting back" is not the answer. when I have a problem/intrusion rather than expend energy unnecessarily I disconnect/remove myself from the situation/agitation and focus on something else and the agitation becomes void. I have used this successfully over the last 20 or so years of my life.

    the word 'leader', ' follower' all imply possibility of ' implant ideas in others/ million or a number of people,
    when its a good cause ; leaders like Gandhi or Mother Theresa are recognized by the world.
    when it s against humanity : leaders like hitler put a black mark in the human history

    I liked the idea of the movie……and the possibilities of shared dreaming and dreams within dreams (which has happened to me). The potential for conversation after the film was more interesting than the film itself, which got very long and convoluted. Using Remote Influincing we can, indeed, influence anothers reality. I was extremely disappointed that there wasn't more use of the "528" energy which was the reason i went in the first place. 528 is the frequency of love, harmony and creation (google Dr. Len Horowitz) and was only referred to in passing.

    I haven't seen Inception. But I have done some experiments while beeing in Alpha. Before I ever heard of Alpha brainwaves, I frequently wook up between 4 and 5 in the morning, feeling emotions that obviously weren't mine. I then felt someone I knew -but had no longer contact with- close. Years later I read about Alpha and I realised that if someone dear to me connects in Alpha, I wake up and know who is there.
    I started to experiment. Someone who came too close and flirted too much at my work with me, I asked in Alpha to keep distance, using a hypnotic script i wrote in case he'd contact me in Alpha. I asked for a specific uncounsious but defenitely recognisable sign to give me if he got the message. The very next day his behaviour had changed towards me, no more flirtations, and was strictly bussiness, but friendly. The specific sign however, came at an unsuspected time during a meeting, but 3 weeks later! I was astonished. He was so obviously unaware of the sign he gave me, but it was so clear the posthypnotic suggestion I gave him. I don't know if putting ideas in someone's head is possible, but I am convinced that people can be influenced when in sync in Alpha.

    well i have not seen the movie, but i had the opportunity to use thought to impose concepts or emotions on others. when showing people how to balance their chakras, i have sent thoughts to a person that they look as though their health is not up to snuff. both in thought and also verbally declaring it. both caused tested energy levels to drop. the flip side is that energy (like water) seeks its own level. in so saying i the best defense is a constant offense of positive and powerful thought.

    "Inception" was an awesome movie, and I actually think I followed it throughout. Do we have multiple levels of mind? Yes, since we're multidimensional beings and science posits that there are at least 10 dimensions. And the idea of a dream within a dream was used by Shakespeare and other writers hundreds of years ago, so there's nothing really new there. If there are multiple dimensions we can tap into, then life itself and what we call "reality" may be a dream, as posited by Calderon, again hundreds of years ago.

    Can we be manipulated at more than one level or dimension of mind? Very likely, since we know that advertising, both overt and subliminal, is attempting to manipulate our every purchase, our every move. And if we're being manipulated subliminally, then doesn't that constitute multidimensional manipulation?

    And what about the Bush government's reaction to 9/11? Nearly everybody in the country was in fear over the attack, which gave the government an opportunity to impinge on many of our basic freedoms, in our "best interests," of course. Public relations operate at all levels–in government, business, religion, you name it.

    But I believe the movie "Inception" also showed us that at every level of mind, the individual will fight hard to maintain autonomy. It seems to me that's what all the vehicles with armed "protectors" were at each dream level. We want to maintain our freedom to make our own choices. And whether we can ultimately do that at all levels of consciousness may be determined by what emotion informs our choices.

    Elisabeth Kubler-Ross often said that inside each of us is a little Hitler at one end of the spectrum and a little Mother Theresa at the other end of the spectrum, and that what informs our choices is whether we come from fear or from love, which are the only two emotions we can experience. The masters and gurus of all the world's spiritual paths tell us that if we come from fear, we make ourselves susceptible to the attacks of others. To be invulnerable, it becomes necessary to come from unconditional love, which means having no stake in any outcome. (Easier said than done!)

    There is always a kind of access to get in somebody's mind .But when you break the rules of the Higher Power , sooner or later , there is a price . There is an art and a force ,to keep the mind secure . Depends on what Gate you open , a good , positive ,on a high level , or on a low level .
    At this time , the power of the mind is very strong all over the world . But this force comes from a higher level .

    The mind is both powerful and pliable. There is solid evidence to support either condition. My wife is living proof of how wide the range of potential is, both good and bad.

    Hi Mike,
    I saw the movie and I even recommended it to all my friends on Facebook. At last, one good movie about the real last frontier: "The human mind". I'm sure it's possible to implement an idea in someone's mind. Remember, "we are one" as Gerald O'Donnel said in his last interview with you. Je pense que ce genre d'expérience est déjà en cours et que le fils "Origine" or Inception is just the tip of the iceberg

    I haven't seen the movie – but am looking forward to watching it!

    And, I didn't read the comments above because I don't want any parts to be ruined. ;)

    But, I do believe our minds can be "hijacked" and our dreams used. Many, many times I have had the impression that my mind was being read and my thoughts used – especially, when a short time later my dreams, thoughts and/or ideas show up in a book, TV show or movie or as a product in stores.

    I used to think that a lot of great ideas were shared by The One and whoever could act on it faster got to use the idea to their advantage.

    However, there have been too many times that I have known someone was inside looking around. Why are they probing into my mind? I do not know. But, they have been there…

    Looking forward to a movie that is, hopefully, very, very cool!

    How secure your mind is depends on your emotional state and your understanding of its workings. The nature of reality is far more complex than any of us understand.

    Is it possible for others to influence our thinking? What do you think politicians, salespeople, religious gurus, advertising agents, our parents, society, doctors and bankers do all day? How do you think suicide bombers come to be? Why do you think we take drugs, drink alcohol, eat foods that all harm us in the mistaken belief that these are actually our own choices?

    Conditioning is the biggest form of control and societies use it, albeit often ignorantly, to create a matrix of reality that keeps us prisoners of that reality. Allowing others to penetrate our personal minds may be a worry, but not being able to break out of the constraints of that same mind is an equally daunting worry. But such is the nature of polarities.

    Several years ago I did a course in Astral Travel, one of the exercises was for us to induce an OBE and meet up on Mt Everest at a nominated time and discuss it at the following meeting. I was new at this, so I was unable to, but 2 of the students who didn't know each other outside the course related their experiences and the 2 had obviously met and their stories were a match.

    With perseverance I got better and contrary to all my expectations I found myself on the other side and was taken on a conducted tour of life after death. I am no fan of science fiction movies, but The Matrix, Vanilla Sky and Inception are so close to my experiences and subsequent understanding of that reality that I cannot dismiss them as fiction, and I might add my experiences took place long before I saw these movies.

    I have experienced many lucid dreams and have woken up inside a dream and a dream within a dream, and again long before I saw Inception.

    Consciously or unconsciously the writers of these movies are accessing realities which are the stage of our next level of evolution. That's what 2012 is about.

    Have not as yet seen movie – intend to with positive anticipation! Your quest (ion) is certainly not unique; consider the history of propaganda, the many varieties of subliminal suggestion, the age old effect of exposure to graffiti, or even the up front guidance that was intentionally disregarded. But then, whose illusion holds more sway, yours? mine? that of someone else? If we are to write the story of our own lives then (since we are not presently in the realm of pure thought) that story must perforce be a fiction, ie. a lie. What's wrong with that? On a somber note, I would like to refer to a piece of literature from E. A. Poe titled " A Dream Within A Dream." I believe that he closes the piece with a question mark – how appropriate!

    ive had dream warfare before.
    just thought i was having nightmares, but the way my brain works, i took a right hand turn, when i should have been walking straight, and i could watch thing happening to the block towards the path i left.
    this was before i did total lucid dreaming, now i just enjoy dreams and wake up in them, when its fun to do so.
    oh yes, after i figured out it was an attack, and who was doing it
    i took a night off, and built dream nightmare machines, (that still exist, i upgrade them once and a while)
    i went into his mind, found all of his possessions, (which were i guess very important to him, ) and had all my nightmare machines 1,000's of them rip his world apart.
    funny he didn't care about his own life, or his family, just his stupid belongings.
    next day, he moved out of town, and i have never heard from him again.
    i am waiting.
    his discipline was aleister crowley, madame Blavatsky they have been doing this for a century.
    i pulled that out of his mind also. using a military 1968 version of remote viewing and psychic espionage

      jack parsons learned from them, just imagine what they could do with electronic assistance, either with a man "in the chair" , or a computer that could transmit on human thought frequencies. but i can only guess at that.

    Just saw the movie today and it was awesome. And yes it is totally possible. I have been knowingly and intentionally doing it for 10 years. There is one person who I continually confuse my waking thoughts with and I fully believe these thoughts are mine. I know I am in this persons head just as much. I have worked with children and adults. BTW, there are certain people currently in political power who used these concepts to get there.

    Is Inception possible? Perhaps, there is so much of the human mind that is not used. I beleive we may be on the verge of evolving to a point that we develope our mental, subconscious powers and there are many who beleive in the combined consciousness. If remote viewing and Astral projection are possible, then perhaps the implanting of ideas is also a future possibility.

    I think that if you can control other's minds, you yourself can be controlled also. You can't have your rule of the universe apply to everyone but yourself.

    If a person is not aware of their subconscious thoughts, they easily get sucked into what ever low-level drama in their life triggers that particular vibration. It is wise to be always in awareness of what you are thinking.

    I saw the movie and was disappointed as it did not cover in any depth this topic of influencing and/or affecting one’s dreams, thought, etc. We are being manipulated on such a subtle level. I reommend reading books on NeuroLinguistic Programming so you can recognize these techniques when they are being used on you. Very subtle work.

    Hi Michael/Vishen………

    Thank you for your emails/blog! I look forward to them everyday. :-)
    Do I think that it is possible to implant ideas in people's brains? I say it's child's play! I need only look around my world to see that it's being done on a grand scale. And there can be no doubt that the greatest tool ever invented to accomplish the task of relieving one of his or her free will is the television. I could write for hours on the subject as it has been my passion for nearly twenty years. It is my well considered opinion that most have had precious few of thoughts that they could genuinely call their own in their lives! :-(

    Remember back in the late 60's. Television commercials got into trouble with subliminal messages hidden in the commercial telling you to buy their product? Well, it really worked, that is why is was stopped because it was dangerous and unfair marketing practice. It told your subconscious what to get, with out your knowledge. And that was just a single flash of the product mixed in with the regular commercial. Pretty slick.

    mind security? I beleive that is depends on the indivial speaking and how the company
    listening clearly understands what is being said is believes it to be true. A Speaker that
    speaks the truth and believies in what they say, will install the believalbe important- pick -up
    -information and the listner will be more likely to have a mind change. sorry about the spelling

    Ok. I have seen the movie -Inception . Is very interesting .
    Yes ,is true that can take somebody in a Lucid dream . I know how it is .I have had this experience with a person who at that time , was interested in this technique , Lucid dream .
    And as in this movie , you can't get inside this information if you don't know at least a few things about mind , memory ,dreams ,emotions and control .
    They take in this movie , some drugs , to enter deeper .This can be dangerous .
    But can use music to enter in delta state of mind .Or have to rise your energetical level higher .
    The movie is very complex and full of informations if you know to 'read' it .
    Do not expect to understand at the first side this movie , have to see again ,and again ,pieces from this journey ,to analise piece with piece .There are a few stages of the dream there .Have to be a specialist , in the art of dreaming and in the science of the mind ,or just to be a visionary person , a dreamer one ..
    The art of dreaming is a complex process because our mind is complex .
    But this movie is a fantastic example to study this subject .

    We are so influenced by the media and our own family telling our minds what is right and wrong by our culture rules we grow a certain direction. TV and movies now employ flashes that work at hypnotizing their audience. All kinds of things by all kinds of people are always trying to influence us to do something against our "Spiritual Will."
    Society even demands us to have a job and influences us that those who don't are lesser for not doing their part.
    The Laws of self and how to live a proper respectful life are encoded in our soul. It is through mediation and reconnection with the Creator of all that is that we come unto ourselves and live life purposefully and wholly.
    Understanding this I was given a meditation by the creator on how to protect your mind and souls knowledge and grow forthright and bring inner peace to the self. I now find myself on the outside looking in at all those running around under the influence of other s and reacting to what really is important to life.
    It is time we disconnect with the controllers and start running our own lives in harmony with spirit and nature as God intended.

    I believe that this thing that we all call life,is a dream. Most of us are all dreaming.To wake up from this dream,is to become enlightened.That is what enlightenment is about, waking up,and the only way out this mess. I know that mind manipulation is possible.It's been going on forever.The government's and other private parties however have been investing, researching, and developing these techniques for quite some time now.They have made leap's and bound's this area.Unfortunately for mostly the wrong reasons.I totally related to Inception,and do believe that this kind of mind manipulation is possible.For us that are out of the elite group that is informed,we can only imagine how far they have advanced.This much I feel certain of though,and that is that we are only informed minutely.We only know what they want us to know for programing purposes.If you want to know or realize more,you have to think out of the box.The truth can be extremely scary stuff to look at for most people,so most people don't.Fortunately thank's to the internet more and more people are waking up. If anyone out there is interested in realizing that this really is a dream that we need to wake up from,Disappearance Of The Universe,bye Gary R. Renard is a good place to start.Disappearance is a pre emt to A Course in Miracles. Namaste my Brother's and Sister's,and remember forgiveness is the key to Heaven

    Thanks Michael for raising this topic. I watched the movie one week ago. Shocked! Definitely will get back and watch it again. I love it very much as it triggers one's thoughts like a gushing well. For me a lot of metaphors are coded there, for instance:

    1. A dream in dream in dream..
    This is a real picture of our reality in polarity world. Actually as we are living in this world at this moment, it is just within one "dream" of a web of unlimited dreams (not just 3), no beginning, no end. Above us, there are unlimited ones, and below us there are also unlimited ones. Like a fracas.

    2. Go back to home: one more last dream
    Then I ask myself, if you have a unlimited levels of dream (dimensions) are above you, and unlimited ones below you, what is the point of your level, it is just meaningless, as everything is relative, you can say you are at the right side, or the left side, up or down…all depends on which reference you are using.

    Same in the movie, the guy lost in his dream after dream…never get the change to see the real home (represented by his child)….then come the concept of "one more last dream" to go back to "home". That is what I am asking myself. What will be our last dream as human being? the one that will finish all this endless illusions and back to the pure reality, the home run?

    3. Love is the tool to bring us back to home
    The motivation/link that finally brings him out of the maze and back to home is his desires to see the face of his beloved child. The symbol of love. I am feeling strange it did not using the metaphor of the love of a father (as we all perceived the image of GOD/source as a father). Of course, when he got back to home finally at the end of the movie, his father welcomes him and a nice reunion. But it feels not an important part of the movie compared with the children.

    4. the "kick": the pain/event/drama we have to go thought to emerge into another world.

    whenever a dream is getting to the end, it usually came with a lot of chaos/pain/drama…such as the explosion, death, car falling into the water etc. in the movie, they called it "kicks" (the triggers?). It is interesting that when one fall sleep, there is a physiology phenomenon called "kick" as well. Dr. explains it as the jerk of your leg muscle during a certain stage of sleep. Spiritual person explains it as the moment when your astral body leaves your physical body (if the moves is too hush),as it pull your astral cord suddenly. For me it is the moment when the "bubble" of a dream gets burst, and then you get into another bubble of dream. Then I asked myself, will 2012 is just a kick that "send" us to another dimension? if yes, is this the home run or just another one?

    5. Let it go; otherwise you stuck in the cage of the old reality.

    each one's reality is formed by one believing system. Your believe system like a matrix of reference which defines your position (reality) through the relationship with your surrounding (just like you define your location in a map). Without reference, you are not exiting in this world. You need a reference to define yourself. If you change your reference, your position changes, so is your reality and environment; however, if you keep sticking with your old reference system, you can not change your reality. These holding points are the memory. Like in that movie, the hold is his guilty feeling toward his wife. It prevents him from getting back to home. So we have to let it go so as to be able to move on to another page/reality.

    It is interesting in the movie, to visit his deep memory (his wife), that guy was taking an elevator sending him deep down. A same metaphor used by Gerald to visit our own subconscious, also the interface of the universal mind at the very bottom…I was doing this lesson today, and that image of movie keeps coming to my mind interfering me…kind funny.

    In short, this is a very deep and interesting movie, and each ones will get things different from it, just like the movie of Avatar. The above are just some thoughts of mine to share with you. Hope to get comments from here as I don't know what I understand is right or not.
    Thanks

    haven't seen the movie but I can say that the mind is constantly influenced by our surroundings whether deliberately or just by the nature of living in this reality. used to do remote viewing where I would go on missions till one night it totally freaked me out as to what I was doing and I said "no more.," and yes it stopped. I knew what I was seeing and it was with a group of people, sometimes just myself and one other who was like my protector/teacher. dreams reveal the subconscious mind, the reflector of our life, in a way that to our conscious mind can be made sense of and until that happens there is unrest and the constancy of searching for the truth, the resolution, the peace

        i do agree with the two of you guys. but i guess, it’s already upon us and it’s been with us since time immemorial, isn’t it? see how people are able to influence and convince us about their ideas and philosophies? i believe it is one reality that some of us are just equipped with the right mindset to be able to “enter” some people’s minds. although looks like some of them are able to do it unconsciously, while some it is learned. and for most of us, we still have to learn it.

        Hi, I just read your comment on the “truth”. I haven’t been seeking the truth but I have been trying to define it. I gave up on the search when I applied the simple logic that the truth is seen by all thus giving the truth infinite variations. Example; if three people are standing in a line with the first and second person facing one another and the third person looking at the the back of the second person’s head. If the first person hits the second person in the face with a pie, which person saw the whole truth of the incident? My answer would be none. Each indiviual saw a fraction of what happened and then processed that information to form their individual version of the truth. Well if I,m off base with this please let me know. Thanks.

    Haven't watched the movie. Yes, I believe that the mind can be influenced by others, while conscious and or unconscious via dreams. Telepathy is an awesome skill/experience but one needs to be mentally strong to recognize/understand who you really are, your beliefs, your limits, integrity… and learn to block others emotions and thoughts whether intentionally planted or just picked up randomly and to be able to tell the difference.

    I absolutely agree that people can influence your mind,… I think depending on your level of conciousness at the time, you are can be more aware of it than others…. the question is are they doing it to benefit you or themselves…

    If our minds were not open to influence, would we spend half of our adulthood trying to overcome the limiting beliefs installed in childhood? Of course we're absorbing influence from outside all the time, the media, films, music, people. Its just that our conscious (non-dreaming) mind has a filter and dismisses any beliefs that don't match the ones already installed. But in Inception, the beliefs are being installed in the sub-conscious, which has no filters, hence will accept anything fed to it.

  56. AMPowers
    August 12, 2010 | 12:03 pm

    I haven't seen the movie but the idea of mind power has had a strong hold on my own mind for the last few years. It does seem believable that there is a shift in evolution of our consciousness and that thoughts are more than mere empty forms in the vast void of our minds. If you think back to the 70's the US Government, and most likely others, took a serious interest in remote viewing and "psychic" intelligence work, much of which is now declassified information (but probably only to a point). Thirty years ago we would have laughed at the thought of any governmental organization taking interest and even studying such "nonsense". Now knowing how powerful the mind is and how much untappped potential lies within it's confines, I would be inclined to think that world intelligence agencies are not as removed from the subject of mind power as they would like us to think. In declassifying much of the confidential material in their remote viewing operations it would suffice to say that the message conveyed to the public would be…..hey we tried it out and it didn't work.

  57. AMPowers
    August 12, 2010 | 12:03 pm

    (Part 2) Now wouldn't that be fitting, all the while actual emphasis on the ever evolving subject of mind control is increasing globally. In a weird way it kind of reminds me of the church years ago. Threatening people with the wrath of God and burning witches at the stake for even delving in the area of personal power. Of course there are many charlatans out there jumping on the band wagon of the newest radical fad but there genuinely are some individuals and organizations that are pioneering some pretty amazing research into the area and the results are amazing. So, is the idea of inception far fetched…come one…we used to think the world was flat remember?? Translation, an astounding, YES!!…we are only skimming the surface of THAT iceberg :)

    offcourse is this happening im living it it isnt coinsedense that all these movies coming out now they want to feed it to our subconsious minds i cant even describe how far this expiriments off them go but i am a moonchild and they have tortured me in so many ways mentaly [iff you realy want to know more about this read the book ''the perfect formula to create a monarch slave''] the truth is that i awoken and have seen to much off what is allready used in mindtechnolegy and satelite entetys the moment you know to much you become victem and you cant imagine how worse this hell can get and the worst thing was that there is nowere you can find help becose they only send you to a mental hospital and drug you with medicine to keep you quiet and there the torture wont stop so there were only two options one was commiting suicide and one was seeking help in higher powers so from there i went the path off light hoping to get help from the masters off light but also they refused to offer help so i went deeper in history where i found the powers off darkness [shadows] and the spirits off the subconsious part off the mind it was necronomacy where i found help and their torturing and imprisoning with fake demonolegy was becose they wanted their virtual creation off their created reality and force it upon me but the answer i found was laying in agient history in black magic called necronomicon becose this reality was ment to be found by one off their victems and is what continues after a war that was going on before the birth off men they have indead maneged to control the minds off humans but they cant avoid destination that is allready created but needed to be found by someone who has roots with the past its more like a hallucination that will take place at the moment in evolution off globalisation so it becomes a global hallucination off agient gods that are manrefested from the mental sickness off what can happen when someone is beying tortured in mind it is a sick mind where it gets created and the point in evolution that makes it multiversal reality its a global hallucination i know it sounds crazy but the world doesnt know what awayts upon them and illuminati [the real illuminati] is now preparing humanity for what is yet to come and do this by film and music industry i know i am retardet but we will eventualy see

    brain working instead of……(not even 10 % ) ….

    In those times of changing of "PARADYGME" it comes to "àpoint "for us to see (in a movie) what can go in our mind…..certain things are from a GOOD-IMAGINATION,,,but there are some others from the anciant paradygme……now….we are going into somewhere where- we never- have -been-before.

    The only secure mind is the mind of a psychotic (untreated).
    The movie is completely possible, and completely understandable. Though, the tech isn't quite there
    yet (maybe)
    Every moment of the day the conscious, and scanning unconscious are formulating and reformulating
    reality-based on vectoring experiencial platform references…movies, television, and slowly evolving
    culturization (life mobility experiences) keep this neuro activity questing for understanding. And repetition of all these element create a form of individual custom based reality. When in fact there is no reality…only cause and effect which has a feedback stored Quantum style form called 'your reality'.
    The world is your idea…or the assault of your ideas by other catalytic ideas on the internal neurological
    vectoring energy images vectoring systems.
    Without such changes…the human organism has no purpose to live and respond by default.

    Michael, seeing this picture tomorrow night. My opinion is though, as we are all One Consciousness, each carrying the God particle within, that most definately we can enter into someone else's dream state. Subliminal audio discs do exactly that, implant ideas into your brain. Note I said brain. Those of us that are not awakened to the fact that we each are God and indeed can co-create with him on all levels working with the mind/soul and the God within are very easily open to auto suggestions through the brain and ego, whereas the other person who lives by the mind and Universal Law can easily block unwanted thoughts and intruders, they easily detect attempted invasion. I feel sure Gerald will agree. At this time many of the population are awakening to the fact that we have been kept in a Matrix World of slavery where the Money Moguls have done exactly what you are asking about to keep us at war, enslaved to making money and more money and riches for the greed of the dark eletists. It is time for us to awaken and be released from this dark world forever.

    In an effort to combat terrorism and gain intelligence our government is working on this stuff
    even though it is not perfected yet! This is similar to the remote viewing that many thought
    was impossible but now we all know the truth! Look ,anything that the human mind can conceive
    it will act on and experiment with unless there is a restraining power to stop it! Most minds are
    totally unprotected that is why mass media is so influential and dangerous and the human
    population is in so much trouble and we are near a great human nuclear holocaust!!!

    I haven't seen the movie yet…will definitely go watch it now…but more importantly, the topic of this conversation is interesting. I believe we as INDIVIDUALS make (perhaps unconsciously) the decision about what we choose to think. We, individually, choose whether to think happy thoughts or unhappy thoughts, & we choose what information to discuss and share and dwell on and think about all day long. If our thoughts are being manipulated by others, then ultimately we made the choice to allow that manipulation in to our thoughts.

    Yes, the mind can be manipulated…thoughts can be manipulated…and ultimately beliefs begin to form. Our thoughts have been manipulated since birth. Our parents began creating our thoughts for us before we could walk or talk, and began turning their beliefs and biases and prejudices and certainties in to our own. That is the BEGINNING of mind control… Our teachers, our churches, our politicians, our media ALL control and manipulate thoughts. Advertisers, salesmen, the nightly news, movies, books, religions, people…. all mind manipulators.

    We are all part of the collective thoughts of this universe. Ultimately, we all have the power to let others think for us or to think for ourselves. It's our decision to be manipulated or not to be. The real question is not if our thoughts can be controlled…but how many of us choose to be controlled. Hitler took over a whole country. That's a lot of minds…lots of thoughts…lots of individuals who chose his control. Why?

    I think it's possible implant memory and erase memory and send dreams to the people any time any where even the operator of memory machine is on the other side of the world.
    I think is it possible
    erase the memory of the life of a person and implant the memory of another person in the brain of another person
    sometimes i think something important and one second after i forget the information. i try to recover
    the informations and one minute or two i recover the information . the operator sends dreams about things from my everyday life that are very logical and perfect to be mere dreams. Be careful they are watching you. bye bye.

    Hey Michael, good topic. Our minds have been polluted with subliminal garbage since the 70′s. I believe mankind is becoming more immune to mind control. However, until you become aware of the different forms of mind control and influence, chances are a lot of thoughts rolling around in your mind are not your own. A good book on this subject is “Mind Programming” by Eldon Taylor. I started reading this book at the same time I received my remote viewing and influencing program from A.R.V.A.R.I. These two products work really well with each other. I highly recommend this book to anyone practicing remote viewing. As we begin to open our minds to the ONE, we are bound to run into some psychic pollution before we reach enlightenment. Don’t be afraid, truth and love will always prevail. I love Gerald’s RV exercise on breaking away from the fear matrix. We have to realize that the mind power linked to the subconscious is nothing new to the secret world of advertising/commercial, and military psychology. The next time you got to a shopping mall, try to be aware of all the sudden impulsive urges you have. Look at an add in a magazine with no pictures of people in it and ask yourself what you feel. They deliberately put symbols and shapes that are meant specifically for your subconscious. I say this only to spread awareness, NOT to spread fear. If you are practicing Gerald’s RV and RI CD’s, you got nothing to be afraid of.

    Einstien once said "reality is an illusion, although it's a stubbornly persistent illusion. I agree with Einstien. The movie inception was a facinating movie with many twists and turns and I believe it shows what is possible with the use of technology and how the mind can be accesed and manipulated. We all have the power and gift of our imagination. why do we have this gift if not to use it? And when we use this gift what we imagine may become real. We have the gift of dreaming and what we dream may become real. In the movie if I understood it correctly, dreams were used to make a desired outcome real. There may have been confusion in in understanding the plot because there were times when I was not sure having a dream within a dream; and within dreams happen in "real life" Our minds may not be as secure as we believe. What proof do we have that what we think is reality is not just a giant holodeck that functions on an advanced computer program from a bieng far more intelligent than us?

    Thanks for asking.
    I enjoyed reading some of the comments.
    We are disillsioned or arrogant when we believe that we physical beings are not and have always not been subject to every kind of mind control in more ways and more completely than we can even imagine.Our mind's security system is totally a sieve and we are completely controlled like actors following a script.It's not a real world so the best we can do is to help others, don't take it too seriously and enjoy the ride to the fullest.
    However:
    Only when we are able to remember that we are spiritual beings with a soul and not just physical beings with a mind can we start to step outside the range of mind control.When we perfect this then we can not be controlled without giving our permission.And why would we?

    I haven't seen the movie but watched the trailer.It looks exciting and thought provoking.Leonardo is an unusually gifted actor.

    Dream states can take us to alternate realities that seem understandable while we are there.. After returning to our state of consciousness those experiences have no grounding or understanding here and therefor become confusing.. Getting stuck between these 2 could cause some deep conscious problems..
    Movies like the Matrix, Star Trek, Dr Who etc.. Expand our thoughts, plant a seed..

    My girlfriend saw Inception for the 2nd time with me for my 1st. She said she caught a lot of details she missed the 1st time, and had no doubts this time about what was happening or the resolution. I liked the film. I think they leave you hanging at the end about whether he has made it home.

    Yes, others can get into your thoughts. Look at all of the sheep who unquestioningly regurgitate what they're told in the media. For example, how many still believe the "official story" of 9/11, when credible experts have documented proof of how it is physically impossible for the buildings to have been demolished the way they were by airplane collision. Look at the people who mindlessly followed the KKK, or Hitler, who just sat and lackadaisically let George W steal a second election… There are many ways to imprint and implant ideas, beliefs, fears. Socialization is a constant process of people telling people how to believe and behave, and many vehicles and avenues to facilitate this.
    I also think that there are those out there (humans, and perhaps other aware entities from beyond Earth, the physical plane, biological life?) that can actively invade our minds if they choose, and I believe the movie illustrates one potential way, through dreams. I think we can find one another in shared dreams. I believe I have experienced this. I have definitely had precognitive and lucid dreams. My most recent lucid dream was while listening to the Remote Influencing audio while falling asleep- the consistent recording play was the key that helped me realize I was dreaming and take control of the dream.
    There are shamans, mystics, spiritual masters and cultivators of awareness that have practiced to the point of learning to transcend many of the boundaries that the public accepts as final. I think most beings with the level of awareness to accomplish these kind of abilities probably have enough awareness to use their powers responsibly, and enough insight to realize the futility of engaging in acts of warfare and deception with other humans, but who knows… A world of infinite possibility, right?
    And the self is just an illusion, right? Individuality is just a dream of the cosmic soup? So if our minds are illusory projections, and life is one, who cares if one illusion invades another?

    Agrees with Eddie these shows and movies like Inception really introduce ourselves into ideas that transcend our notions of time and space. I am interested in the idea of Lucid Dreaming and what it can accomplish. I often think of the afterlife as the Big Sleep, the idea that we would remain in the dream world. I believe that one day we will learn how to bring the lucidity of the real world with the infinite potential of the dream world and literally create for ourselves a heaven on earth.

    ha~ha~haha~~~lol~~I can imagine. . will not want to see this movie. Yes, yes, human mind is like a sponge and chameleon is what humanity is very much sensitive to our environment and what we hear, see ~~LIFE IS A JOKE!! We are greatly influenced by the environment we live in. Many things we think about may not be your truth but it may be just the matrix of humanity that is not so evolved or whatever they think, many tap into their thoughts and ideas. It is therefore important that one self is clear about one's own belief system. as all of humanity is like a sponge. Therefore, "pure consciousness is the order of the day", in order for humanity to rise above this "earthmadness" This is an insight to fengshui: what we think and what we see and create in our environment becomes part of our reality. The big joke is that each one of us are born with a deck of 52 cards..check out Destiny Cards by Robert Camp. there are personalities that describes the CLUBS, Hearts, Daimonds, Spades. Clubs are the MENTAL quality and the EIGHT of Clubs is the only fixed card that is not so easily manipulated from its own belief system. The HEARTS are reactive to emotion of LOVE, and the Diamonds are reactive to Values. the SPADES are reactive to ACTION. there are only three fixed cards that
    may have a chance of remaining stable..everyone else shifts according to the changes.
    Each one of us holds these cards through out our lives and affects us to the qualities of these cards for every day of our lives. It is all mathematically set as we are born in this human race.
    Back to this film…I can imagine it must be most profound and would be careful for its subliminal effects on sensitive minds. most people have sensitive minds. we are all subject to what we see and hear and it all depends on our level of consciousness. It always fascinates me, the script writers of movies have much depth beyond the unconsciousness of humanity. it is only a seed planted for changes that are coming with the AWAKENING OF HUMANITY. "Guard your thinking ability" is another order of the day…..life is a joke!!! we live in an illusional world but there is the CENTER of each person where we will all find our truth that is universal and good for all…we are all interconnected..if HUMANITY connects through the DIVINE MATRIX, we will understand the value of ONE for all. ALL for ONE.

    Part 1
    Hi Guys
    Thanks for opening up the question
    Have you ever wondered where your thoughts come from, 90 percent of our thoughts and emotions we pick up from others, without us knowing we are tuning into others and them tuning into us. People who are sensitive are more likely to be more open to others energy.
    I worked with a ADD boy, his emotions were all over the place especiaslly at school, he was always getting into trouble. So I possed the question to him to ask himself when things were out of control. WHO DOES THIS BELONG TO.
    I explained how to tune into the question and then to see if it was actually his or not, what followed was awesome, it was like turning on a light in somebodies life. His words were, is that why all of a sudden i want to eat, punch somebodies lights out, feel sad, feel like crying, getting angry with my teachers for no reason, do crazy things, say things that I would not usually say. And of course him being ADD the whole lot came out in about 2 seconds flat.

    Mind control from big bussiness and others in higher places has been around since the 50s and still is now, the bigger your pcket the more you are allowed to get away with.
    Just go online there are all sorts of tools to stop subliminals coming thru your computer while you are on line. There are all sorts of tools to get your life back on track using subliminals, basically undoing all the past programming where we have been programmed to others expectations, teachers parents government, employers tv magazine the web.
    I think it would take a very enlightened mind to be completely free and hey is this not part of the challenges we face every day to grow.
    The other night I had a dream with in a dream while running a subliminal sleep program, quite awsome actually left me a bit rattled after for a while, a really good clearing

    Hi. I have not seen this film. The human brain is a big lump of fat serving as a antenna receiving electromagnetic and higher frequencies from the ether and as a electromagnetic "central control" for the body and it´s functions. The body/brain produces thoughts as you experiences as your own thinking, this kind of thinking is affected by the physical conditions in the body/brain and the input from the outside world through the senses. An other kind of thoughts are of a certain quality, crisp, clear, profound, innovative etc, thoughts induced in your brain by the field surrounding your body, the part of you that lives forever and knows all there is to know. Somewhere down my lifeline i was a member of a certain "spiritual developement organisation" whose members regularly meditated in groups, focusing on specific persons of power somewhere in the physical world, with the single aim to implant specific thoughts in to the persons mind, thus trying to influence this persons way of thinking (and his/her acts as a ruler/politician or the like). I left this organisation due to its incongruence with my personal kind of ethics and morals.
    Absolutely, this is very possible ( done with the best result when the "receiver" or "target" is at deep sleep, as the awakened state is a state of strong "intruding thoughts immunity" due to the volume of the persons own thinking mind) . And if you pay attention; you can hear in your inner ear -your own thoughts (loud and clear) and the thoughts of the masses (like a buzz of static electricity or "white noise" and the specific "world teacher" thoughts (low volume, clear and audible, presenting ideas in your mind (inspiration) that makes you think: "yes, why not. Why haven´t i thought of this before?", being broadcast by highly developed indiviudals in the effort of impacting the ordinary person in this world to think, do and be in a certain manner. Sleep tight, sweethearts, you may wake up to morrow with the thoughts of a genius….or the solution to a problem which has been a bother to you for a long time.
    Ps: spend some time searching for events of "syncronicity", different persons living far apart in different parts of the world presenting the same cutting edge invention or breakthrough in science or philosophy, they are there – if you take a closer look. (and so is the source)….

    Saw the Move, loved it, just like I loved the Matrix, (Matrix was better IMO). In answer to the question do I think it is possible to implant an idea in someone's mind, I would have to say it depends on the person. If that person's subconcious is very strong then probably not. If you notice in the movie, the original dreamer's subconcious automatically became hostile to the intruder sharing his dream.

    Reality is all a matter of perception when you get down to it. There is so much discussion material in this movie that it could go on for days, but I would recommend to any one who has not seen to go see it, twice and then get the DVD when it comes out so the journey can continue. lol.

      " If that person's subconcious is very strong then probably not. If you notice in the movie, the original dreamer's subconcious automatically became hostile to the intruder sharing his dream."

      Getting into a persons mind; depends whether the mind is entered in via a front door, back door or piggy backs on a thought, belief, idea the person has already. Go in the front door with an agenda, there will probably be push back…go in floating on a fluffy white cloud…

    Sometimes I can tap into a frequency while in meditation where I am shown advanced technology. After, I’m not sure if I tapped into something or if I recieved the information by a group trying to get me to create a new technology on this plane and in this time period. The technology is foreign and appears to be comming from another time and place. I am currently trying to bring one such technology to this paradigm. Although this is a very interesting lifes work for me I do feel like I am being used and influenced.

      August 13, 2010 | 6:50 am

      Hi Vicdowl: Take a look at the great ones of science and innovative invention, in fact, anybody who has said or done something so significant that they are part of our shared collective history. They all receive(d) their guidance and ideas through in-spiration, sometimes through direct conscious verbal communication with "the source", they all tell the story of "something bigger than I" whispering in their inner ears. And in many cases the "voice" seemed to come from "the future". And it is, your future self is whispering to itself (you) across the illusive time barrier. Some of us do that – you know, deliberately and at command in order to fulfill the purpose for our being here in this present time (highly interesting and highly demanding period of our evolution as a specie on this planet). And you ARE being used: Remember: "thy will – not mine – be done"..? Concrats, my fellow man, (or woman), that you are this awake as to be conscious of your guidance. May I ask: in which area lies your technology? (if you don´t mind my asking..)

      • Vicdowl
        August 14, 2010 | 4:22 am

        Hi Sippedeje,
        There have been four major technologies I have been shown. The first was a large device that braught the ionispere down to earth via a large tower that used a laser. The next on used vacuum and water to rip electrons from the water for power. The next one used a series of layered material to for antigravity waves that were in rods placed under a huver craft. The final one was a huge magnifing glass on top of a pyramid that had a complex set of collection bars under it that soaked up the energy. But why me? These devices are too complex for me to create by myself. But I am working on one of the elements in one of the devices and who knows maybe someday it will come together.

        • sippedeje
          August 15, 2010 | 5:38 pm

          Hi Vicdowl:
          That¨s cool. Hope you finally figure it out! Did you ever consider asking the source of your inspirations to guide you? How to do, how to create, who to talk to etc? Maybe you will get some handy clues..By the way, take a look at The Holy Book, "The book of Ezekiel", that old guy spotted something in the heavens that very very likely was something close to our modern days flying vehicles. To Ezekiel it was something revealed to him by God and it seems like he didn´t have the slightest idea what it was. In our time some NASA engineer created a landing wheel for spacecrafts by the observations and descriptions by that old time prophet. Cool, ha? In other words: who knows when ones inspirations ever come to be in this reality. And the way i see it: no one man can do it all by himself, we are ment to help and support each others and together we can do miracles and more. Best wishes and good luck to you, maybe i will read about you in the world press some day.

    I thought the movie was fantastic also! I liked it when they were discussing which though and how they were going to implant it in the the subjects mind/consciousness. They sounded like "affirmations." i.e "I am going to….." or "I will….." I got a chuckle out of it. :) To say that it's not possible would be predjudice on my behalf because I am not certain if there are technologies in this world that do remotely what was suggested in the movie…..maybe there is. But I highly doubt that I will be able to find it at "Best Buy!" lol I know that there are people / mediums on this planet that can hear what your thinking. I've learned this from experience. Everytime I'd block a thought. She say to me; "Stop that!" lol

    However, as far invoking a thought or an idea into ones mind or subconsious…….?!? It does tickle the curiousity doesn't it. The vibrational frequency that one would have to acquire and be aware of to do such a thing, would be out-of-this-world!!

    August 12, 2010 | 10:54 pm

    Speaking of which, I am sure "ET's" have the capacity to do so……….maybe we will too……in time. The dreaming within a dream was abit of a bender for me as I have a hard time remembering my dreams. Then again the dreams within a dream in the movie Inception were actually "induced" upon the subject by DiCaprio and Team. (sorry i can't remember the characters names). So…….. could someone actually dream within a dream at their won free-will……..I DON'T KNOW?!? lol So many questions and far too many unknowns. I think they did a great job with the movie and covered aspects of that reality or fantasy (i.e. movie) very well. they covered alot of the angles/ perspectives. Like how the mind goes into a defense mechanism state when the changes aren't subtle or well composed enough. Technically your in their world……therefore…….your presence is like a virus within a body and your immune system attacks the tthreat immediately. This was fun chatter. can't wait to read other peoples posts after mine.

    Ideas can be implanted through dreams, but the outcome and the reaction to any new idea cannot neccessarily be predicted. I believe it has a similar effect to any ideas that are implanted in the usual ways of conversation, reading, watching TV, etc. etc.
    I believe, as Daniel says above, 'all ideas must be filtered through the heart', before they will bear any real fruit.

    ….Ahem,….HEY!…It's Hollywood!! Fantasy!!…Illusion! Deeper than the state that all gathered here are trying to escape. Free will is a Divine gift to not be taken from any of us. We can be cajoled, influenced, convinced, but our choices are NOT to be ever overridden…even by GOD, the ONE, who in the first place gave us this right under HIM. We rescued a two year old cat from very bad restriction, giving him free reign to even GO OUTSIDE and see for himself the world….and he always comes back to his home, where he knows he's loved unconditionally. He's grown in size and strength and weight and…knowledge and inner understanding of his life. I speak of just a cat, a domestic animal. In the scriptures there was the fall of eden because of cajoling and influencing, but never of overtaking of another individual. GOD lives at our core, the bastion of our freedom to be one and all and everything. All e need to do is find him within us.

    Mind reading and mind control is possible by someone outside of yourself but you also have the power to resist others from minding reading and mind control of you, just by knowing that you can. I know that I would not enjoy the movie at all. I would avoid seeing it. I don't enjoy violence and contention in the least, it seems to me to be the very lowest aspect of human existence. The motive of showing violence and contention is to get people into low vibrational fear consciousness so that their minds can be manipulated and controlled. The love, truth, freedom, trust in the Divine consciousness protects us from others manipulating our minds. Those who would manipulate us present us with fear-mongering pictures and situations so that they can access our energy fields and our consciousness and control us. Our attention is extremely powerful. We magnetize to ourselves whatever we put our attention and thoughts on.

    An amazing movie. My partner and I arrived less than five minutes after the film had started. In an attempt to make detailed sense of it stayed for a second viewing, madness – and it didn’t help much either!
    To your question:
    Our minds are already being controlled to a great extent through social interaction (particularly religion and politics) and lately through various forms of visual and audio media (particularly through various and often subtle advertising).
    We are also making strides in controlling machines using mind control by sensing and tracking electrical impulses generated by the brain. (In parallel uses of mind control, via nerve stimulation, thought is allowing the manipulation of prosthetic limbs.)
    Whatever we think about genetics and inherited instincts and knowledge, ultimately the brain,is just a miraculously complex circuit board where it’s all about “on” or “off”! This being so it seems logical to think that before long the “circuitry” of the brain will be better understood which, by default will allow control by outside influences.
    I am not a scientist, but might compare our ability to understand the brain as a corollary to the development of the computer where the rooms full of machines that made up ENIAC can now be housed on a pinhead!
    Whether we can develop an ability to influence or read the mind of others without an interface is less clear.
    As we think about the implications of mind control, from our current perspective, it may not be comfortable to contemplate but so be it as man’s destiny is to explore and search for answers – even if it does end in self destruction!

    well i have not seen the movie, but yes i do believe that the mind can be manipulated, even against one's will. i know that the govt.s believe it too, or that we are led to believe that in the movies, as all the spys supposedly had pills that if caught that they would take it to kill themselves rather than be coerced in to telling their secrets, and that they use it to convince someone that there is someone that needs to die like in the "conspiricy theory". and what about subliminal messages through the television. they have proven that that works very effectively, which is still legal by the way. they tried to pass a bill in 1964, but it never went through. why doesn't that surprise me? and isn't there learning by playing a tape over and over again while sleeping? and what about hypnosis? has anyone seen the movie "vanilla sky"? i really believe that it is so.

    There isn't such a thing as security, it's only a concept like everything else. I know that altering the thoughts of others are possible by personal experience. Everything is thought, including the self; a thought can be looked at as a dream; thoughts come from the dream of what society calls God. Gods are also dreamt by Their creator many layers deep. Each God believes they are THE creator, since They are busy controlling things (dreaming) They don't notice They are in a dream or that Their dream is an illusion. People believe they are co-creators because they are the dream of God, Gods dream is a reflection of the "evolution" of the everything, God knows everything that happens in Its dream and we are aspects of God; so how can security fit into this reality?

    Haven't seen it, but on "An Evening with Kreskin", I was guessing everything ahead of Kreskin just "picking up" his powers. When asked for volunteers to be hypnotized, he told me "get the hell off my stage!" because I was thinking a message to him that he was wasting his powers on parlor tricks. He was looking for easily suggestable people and I was not one of them, anyway. So if the subject is right and the topic is acceptable, why would it be different than hypnosis that used to be thought of as impossible. The hypnotized state is the same as all altered states that bring you to 4.5 cycles per second, the rotation divided by mass of the earth "heartbeat" energy of Maya that heals by restoring all to it's natural state. Allign your shakras to it and you can have "healing hands". At 7 years old I drew a dentist "massage" chair with a white noise dome designed to get people to deep REM sleep thus decreasing the time needed for sleep, while increasing the quality of sleep. Delta is good for us.

    Of course everyone’s mind is influenced in varied ways every minute of every day. The most insidious and harmful brainwashing is the closest to home and the ones you least suspect. The belief systems implanted into children by their parents, communities and schools are the biggest stumbling blocks to most domesticated civilized humans. It it exceedingly difficult for people to free themselves from these chains they cannot see, that have been there so long, and were given to them by those who were convinced it was in their best interest to be slaves.

    Can the difference between a Homo Sapien and Human Being be defined by viewing the Homo Sapien as the vehicle for the Human Being? Can there be Homo Sapiens walking about that are not Human Beings?

    I wrote a long comment but forgot to put in my email and somehow my message was discarded in the process so I will just say, I haven't seen the movie yet and although I wouldn't really want to watch violence I think I could detach myself from it to see the rest. I beleive thoughts and dreams can be interefered wtih, most definitely. I suspect mine have been from time to time. Although I watch my waking thoughts, its more difficult in sleep and during dreams. I have been using affirmations before going to sleep to help prevent this as well as listeing to Gerald's CDs. I've recently begun studying psychology and being in a large lecture theatre with so many people around me, there must be some connection going on between minds. I listened to the audio of one of the lectures and the buzz of voices before it began was just a bit disquieting. Why? I don't know I didn't sense anything while I was there. Of course, being a creative person, writing and performing, I could just be a little over-imaginative Anyway, thanks for this discussion and I've enjoyed the comments of others.

    lol pls let i tell you what ok; first of all there's no such thing as absolute value in this world we live in also there's nothing is absolute; therfore i can say to right now my mind is solid like a rock with what i know but then again what i know is not always absolute; therefore when new knowldge is presented for me to learn & it makes perfectly common senes to me at the time then i will bow to it & i am totally entillted to change my mind any time i want it too lol. so your question is out of the question my friend. i hope you got my point & i am open for discussion. Thx for letting me in on it

    I haven’t watch the movie yet. But it does seem very interesting :D

    Personally I think that our minds are not completely secure. In a sense yes we can control our thoughts but at the same time our thoughts are normally influence.

    I think it can also relate to being in a hypnotic state. Anyone can do a hypnosis and we can actually do that to ourselves.

    I saw the movie, and while it had its interesting and real moments, it did go deep into the "what-ifs" to provide a storyline that would help conceptualize this topic with the masses easily… I believe that our minds are as secure as we individually wnat them to be.

    The movie shows that in the future there are even more ways to crush your spirit. We are constantly assulted with brain washing from the 12 mins of comercials to 5 mins show all the way the Fox spin on political events and what The PTA or home owners association wants. its all around us!!! The 6% that control 90% of wealth keep us in check….

    I Haven’t watch the movie yet, but I think that mind is able to protect some kind of information not all, the information that you have in your mind now in this life, if you believe in reincarnation, maybe is vulnerable, someone could influence it and give a kind of commands in order that you do things that in your regular behave don’t do it, sometimes don’t do things to force in a very soft way they guide you to do certain kind of things.

    It actually happens that I've had the experience of waking up within a dream… only to wake up within THAT dream yet again… and had this experience repeated up to 7 times before I found myself back in my bedroom literally with eyes wide open, my room slowly coming into focus.

    That may sound odd but it was a spontaneous event. I wasn't trying to "have" that experience, or even studying about dreaming at that time, it simply happened.

    That said I've always considered myself an avid dreamer. The greatest early hurdle for me was overcoming some culturally implanted fears about dreaming, such as "if you're falling through space in your dream and hit the ground, you'll die", etc.

    Not true. I've fallen in my dreams, landed (hit ground), flown under my own willpower, been shot (fatally), met what I would only call "satan", etc. — and I'm still here, very much so.

    Drop the cultural baggage, lose your fears, free your mind, and you WILL become a very strong and powerful dreamer. That's about all I can add to the conversation, except that as a strong and wilfull, honest dreamer, there will be very little any individual can do to overcome your basic nature while dreaming — you'll simply leave the dream, or "fly away" to greener pastures if that happens, and generally speaking you'll be aware of that dream event in real time, so you can actually review any discomfortable ideas that attempted to make their way past your dreaming mind.

    Everyone should try it, simply because it works. I highly recommend it, and you have nothing to lose by trying — simply acknowledge it's possible, and then allow it to happen.

    I haven't seen the movie, yet. But I've seen the trailers and read plenty of SF Books involving similar things. All the comments are very good and thought provoking. Consider this: When you talk with someone, what makes them more persuasive than someone else. Is it their voice? What about their body language? Do you pay attention to their logic or facts? Have you considered that it might be their use of "mind energy"? Their projection of a thought into your mind.
    The vast majority of persuasive people are only able to influence people they can actually see, that is – in person. Get them on the phone and they have lost their influence. A small percentage of these can influence people they are actually talking with – on the phone. Recordings don't work nearly as well, they require a more active participation on the part of the listener.
    A "remote viewer" is just that – remote, not actually there, and therefore unable to effect what and who they are viewing. A "remote projector" on the other hand can influence and effect others. It is this person who could possibly accomplish this. In a dream? Very possible. In the persons own thoughts? Yes. My own experience tells me this can be done. But while everyone is capable of remote viewing, the experts say only a small percentage of people can remotely project.
    But how to protect yourself from someone doing it to you? I have erected shields around my mind and body that I keep active at all times. I have verified that they work through friends that are able and experienced in such things. I did this in 1976 and have kept them active since. They do not stop everything (physically), but they do protect my mind and body from the "influence" of others. I have also put shields in place around the house to protect my family. My advice, don't panic – focus.

    Once we quiet our mind we receive information, visions that are just as powerful as the outside influences. Where is this information coming from? We know from the mystery schools that we can focus ourself on this power we have and play with this information, we can intensify it and make it more frequent. If you question this reality, as I do you, immerse yourself in this information coming in from the ethers. When you do you will find out that what is out there and available to your can be beautiful and be scary and can be more that you can handle. It will influence you, it will change you you may try to control it and find there are elements outside of our normal plane of existence that can influence you if you come into contact with them. What is even more scary is no one seems to be concerned about that. Most of you are still concerned about what is on TV….I beg you to wake up there is a whole universe out there that most of you seem to be oblivious to.

    I just saw the movie and though I thought the plot was overly convoluted, and it was overlong in general, I loved the themes. In fact the CIA actually used 'remote viewers' in the past doing something reminiscent of what these characters do. It also had themes of lucid dreaming, which is a very real occurrence, which I have experienced, and some people can train themselves to do. It was right on in the concept of a 'totem' that triggers you in the dream; that is indeed how it works: you find a symbol or object that you agree before you sleep will be your 'sign' that tells you are dreaming, then you become 'lucid', and then can control what you do in the dream. In my case it was a mirror or reflective surface – if I saw that in the dream and went up to it and looked into my own eyes, I would 'flip' into lucidity. Also the sensation of 'falling' and the thundering sensations the movie showed, does happen when one 'goes back' into ones body. Not all science fiction here by any means. Leonard DiCaprio is making some wonderful and fascinating choices lately.

    "Waking" life is a paradox dream…a complex, collaborative dream in which THE ONE is multiplied into infinite separate focused entities. We are actually the ONE experiencing itself as the many….pure beautiful genius!

    Remote Influencing is real. We are like wireless receptors. Inception conveys emotions so sophisticate it might be just a matter of time before we as civilians can access conceivable technology and resources.

    We also lack that type of training, but what about skilled oneironauts? Joseph Mcmoneagle did run TRNs from a lucid dream at Stanford, Dr. LaBerge was his monitor.

    I would LOVE to achieve that level of expertise.
