The movie Inception is all about the idea of planting an idea into someone else’s mind by entering the four levels of lucid dreaming by  having a dream within a dream. Cobb’s main task is to achieve inception on Robert Fischer in order to benefit Saito’s company. While some of the concepts that Christopher Nolan mentions are psychologically true, others are just made up to correspond with the idea behind the movie.

A lot of the information presented in Inception is correct not only in the movie but in the real world as well. For example, as Cobb states in the movie, although we only use a fraction of our brain, we do use more than ten percent of it unlike what most people believe to be true. Also, a main theory presented in the movie is that there are four levels of Lucid Dreaming that can occur. A Lucid dream is a dream in which a person’s control center is awake while the rest of the brain is asleep. The first step to Lucid dreaming is knowing you’re awake, the second step is being able to control your dream, the third step is being able to  manipulate the surroundings in one’s own dream, and the fourth and deepest state is having the ability to control the actions other people’s dreams, which is exactly what Cobb is trying to accomplish throughout the movie. Although uncommon, it can be possible to experience Lucid dreaming in real life. Another fact from the movie that is scientifically proved to be true is that we do have the ability to strategize to dream about a particular subject, solve a problem, or end a recurring nightmare. One more example of truth from the movie is the fact that pain in created in the mind.

Although a lot of truth is presented in Inception, some false information is presented as well. For example, we cannot actually see other people’s dreams. It is  an impossible task although it has been attempted. Another false fact is that time in dreams is actually slower than time in reality. In the movie, a level one dream is twelve times slower than reality, a level two dream is twelve times slower than level one, a level three dream is 1,728 times slower than reality, and level four is 20,736 times slower. Although in reality some dreams feel shorter than real time, it is not factual information. It’s all about how each individual perceives it.

Inception is a great psychological thriller that makes one think into his or her own reality. Although some false information was presented, as in most movies, the majority of the information seemed to be true and the dream world is very interesting to learn about.

    Great article, Lexi. I recently watched Inception, and the way you described it is spot on! I like how you said that some of the information is true but some is also false. Great job!
