The joy of imagination

I think what I enjoyed most about Christopher Nolan’s spectacular Inception is that it neatly captures the allure – and the peril – of throwing yourself into the imaginative task of building worlds out of the ether.

When Ariadne builds a Paris dreamscape and Tom Cobb helps tweak and change it, I’m reminded of working with my cohorts on OtherSpace as we built a world’s grid, described the rooms, and developed the lore around them.

Similarly, the scenes of the “memory” area in Cobb’s mind, where the ocean of time churns and starts tearing down the monuments of creation, reminds me of all the old unused grid areas on OtherSpace. Some use outdated room code and look broken. Some aren’t even properly attached to anything else on the world grid. Bits and pieces of a lost age.
