WARNING: THIS POST CONTAINS SPOILERS IN RELATION TO INTERSTELLAR & INCEPTION

I was just reading something by Noam Chomsky when all of a sudden this image floated into my head about Christopher Nolans latest work…

Actually, the thought started with Inception and how he used really simple – yet ideas with meaning to take you outside of the world you thought you knew and into something that was… different.

But it wasn’t like, “psychedelic different”. I mean, why was it that you could do anything you wanted in a dream world except for fly, morph, teleport, or become a giant squid monster? Why the limitations?

Surely that would have made it easier to do, right?

As I thought about it, what I came up with was that It must have been (at least in part) a purposeful decision to communicate the message and meaning of the story to a large audience in a way that wouldn’t freak them out.

That movie could have gotten crazy…

We have 3D limitations. We are subject to them all the time, and thus, in order to truly connect with something it has to be outside of, but relatively close to our understanding of reality.

But nonetheless that movie generated a predictable wave of interest in lucid dreaming, which had a positive effect on the people who connected with it in that way, and then attention and focused was diffused until the next big cosmic movie came out.

    Please don’t refer to movies in the past tense. Films made in the 1930s are just as present as those to be made next year.
    Movies are always now; every time you see one, it is the present.
