Ariadne constructs the labyrinth in the Greek myths. In Inception, she is the projection of Cobb’s pysche that grounds him – the anima of Jung. Some goofballs in a forum were laughing at my analysis of Labyrinth, but if you look at Inception, there are some very fascinating parallels between the two, inasmuch as we enter Sarah’s psyche just as we enter Cobb’s. Both are labyrinthine.
In “The Process of Individuation” by M.L. von Franz in Carl Jung’s Man and His Symbols, explains of the meaning of the labyrinth as subconscious:
“The maze of strange passages, chambers, and unlocked exits in the cellar recalls the old Egyptian representation of the underworld, which is a well-known symbol of the unconscious with its abilities. It also shows how one is “open” to other influences in one’s unconscious shadow side and how uncanny and alien elements can break in.” (pg. 176)
This dude nails it in terms of all of Inception being Cobb’s process of individuation. And never listen to anyone who uses anime characters as their avatar.

I recently saw Muse in concert. It was a great show. Virtually the entire show was a video presentation of how mind control works, combined with the inside job destruction of the world trade towers. Later in the concert, these towers explode and fall. I suspect the three buildings are the two towers plus building 7:
And here the towers fall during Knights of Cydonia: Read more of this post

We’ve all heard the nerds say it – “Dude, what if like, all of this was a dream,” or, “Man, what if like, we’re in the Matrix man?” Such has been the whim and fantasy of stoners and dudes for years, all the way back to Descartes’ speculations, as well as Berkeley and even ol Augustine himself in the Soliloquies (and Berkeley ripped this off of Augustine).
But this doesn’t work at all, is self-refuting, and destructive to the possibility of knowledge whatsoever. For example, a friend claimed:
“Perhaps the matrix is real, perhaps the evil demon hypothesis is correct. You can still be certain of at least one thing, that experience is happening. Consciousness is always a given. You can found a whole kingdom of knowledge upon it. Plus, the world outside doesn’t have have absolute existence whether it’s a hologram or a physical universe.” Read more of this post
