On Dreams
1. What are the projections in the dreams during inception? What purpose do they serve to the dreamer?
According to Freud, projections refer to the images of objects of people within the human dreams, which are projected by the sub-coconscious mind of the sleeping individual. The projections act like the white blood cells in the body that fight infections because they tend to attach and defend the mind of the sleeping person from invasion when a dreamer manipulates the subject.
2. What do the ascents and descents mean throughout the dreams?
Ascents refer to ascending ascents in dreams where the person dreams being in a lift, climbing a hill or mountain or other high heights and link to the feelings of passion and sometimes sexual pleasure. It is a shift from a lower mood to exhilaration or being lighter as the individual ascends.

Cobb is able to use dreams to navigate through the dream world of Fischer because in this state, Fischer cannot prevent Cobb’s manipulation of his thoughts.
4. Why does the dreamer but not the team forget the dream?
The dreamer is already subconscious and the dream does not belong to him. Rather, it belongs to Earns, whose level is dreamt by a different member of the team. Fischer, the dreamer, is only brought in a subconscious state to fill in. Thus, the subconscious state of Fischer means that he remains in this state throughout the dream and will not likely remember he vents...
