“…When they are talking about inception as a concept and how to make the idea seem organic. There is specific discussion about the seed being very subtle. Was there a single part of the entire “Fischer three layer dream” that was subtle? No! Deep in the dream, dying dad on the ”holodeck” was not subtle. Yet to the casual viewer taking a linear view of the layers and assumes he seed is in the deepest layer. What we are suppose to assume is the “first layer”, is where the fully formed idea that he should break up the company is first introduced. There is nothing subtle about kidnapping, dying declarations and secret wills that say Dad wants the company to be broken up. This can not be the seed. The next two layers are all about him accepting the idea as right for him in his need to make his dad proud. They have nothing to do with the idea which comes in the kidnapping level, an idea that comes fully formed, not as the seed.

Where is the seed for the idea of breaking up the company? Its in the ”real” first layer of Cobb’s dream, inwhat is presented as reality. It is Fischer breaking the glass on the picture of him with his dad. This is key. Many people are discussing if the end is him still in limbo from the dreaming on the plane. If you adopt my idea that the seed for the idea that is the focus off the three “action layers” is the breaking of the glass on the image of father and son, that happens before the 747 ride. It means Cobb’s entire reality is the dream, his wife was right and she is not dead, his entire life as an extractor is THE dream.

The breaking of the picture frame glass is where we see the photo first and then we see the photo carried all they way down, always seen but never talked about. Posthumously creating signpost to the event and photo as being key.

The top layer is where Cobb, left his kids without seeing their faces (feels odd & dream like), the one where his wife kills herself, the one where his totem is her totem, even though you are suppose to never share this. I will watch it again later this year . But for now, I am convinced the broken picture is the Inception seed, and that is at the top layer we see. So that is the top layer of the dream for Cobb and we have never seen reality….”
