'Inception' ending: 'Lost' showrunner Damon Lindelof's theory

damon-lindelof-inception-320.jpgHi, Damon Lindelof. Welcome to the "Inception" fan club and philosophical rumination society.

Trust the "Lost" showrunner to have an idea or two about complicated plots that play fast and loose with reality.

Spoilers!  We're not going to get too explicit here, but if you haven't seen the film, then a) Why haven't you? and b) Don't read any further.

While "Inception's" last scene as it pertains to dream invader/ideas thief Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) is ambiguous at best, with two main interpretations at the forefront, Lindelof sees things a little differently.

"There is a THIRD possibility -- It neither stopped ... nor kept spinning. The story ended before either could happen. Discuss," he tweets.

Later, he adds, "Legitimate apologies. I am currently obsessed with INCEPTION. Spoilers abound, so unfollow until you've seen it. Sorry, folks."

He's not claiming the ending's reality is one way or another. After all, his Twitter profile even states: "Yeah, I'm one of the idiots behind LOST. And no, I don't understand it either."

Of course, our faithful and deep-thinking Zap2it readers have already dreamed up (heh) this possibility and have debated the ending at length. Join in the discussion, already in progress.
