Just finished watching "Inception."  It was kinda freaky for me and while I loved every minute of it a thought kept popping up with it came to the relationship between Mr. and Mrs. Cobb.  "Wow, talk about the dark side of soulmate love." In some ways I'm finding myself equating Cobb's decision to plant the suggestion/idea that the dream was real even after they awoke with that of Kal-El/Clark's at the end of Lester's version of Superman II.  That we would love her so much that in order to make her happy in the short term he would do something that drastic and life-altering negatively in the long-term is something that has me shifting in my chair in discomfort.  I've always said that I want to believe in soulmates but something like that makes me rethink that belief a bit.... but only a bit. 

For some reason I was mixing my Greek myths up a bit when I heard the architect's name was Ariadne.  For some odd reason I was thinking of her as a "dreamweaver" and mixed her up with Arachne.  Believe me when I got home I was extremely red-faced in shame over that considering how well I know the myths about Athena (considering she's my favorite Greek character you would understand why).
