A dream with a dream... within a dream... Well i couldn't take Inception seriously when i watch the episode of South Park "Insheeption" xD

My totem is my Chrome Dokuro keychain figure.It most likely gives me good dreams since I never wake up in a cold sweat.

Are you even using the word "totem" correctly? Cuz it seems to me that you mean "amulet".

I imagine they meant something akin to a dreamcatcher oe peacekeep. Not necessarily a totem, since as far as I'm aware totems aren't that spiritually connected to dreams.

They mean totem,not amulet, as thats what they were referred to as in the film Inception.I'd choose a mini-birdcage for no particular reason

I don't have a totem or an amulet.
But i always have my thoughts, so that would be my totem i suppose

When they sedate themselves to have the dreams it made me wonder if my ADHD medication would do the same, as they are effectively, also sedatives. No it did not, although I did have a dream that I was in a layer.....but it was a cake. Now thats a mind-fuck.

I enjoyed Inception, I'm one of few people in the cinema at the time who understood, maybe because I didn't ask questions throughout the whole thing and shut up and watched it

Meh, Inception was a mediocre caper flick at best. Existenz is a better mindscrew IMO.

By totem he means a small object you keep at all times, which has a function only you understand. The totem would work how it normally would in the real world, but if you were dreaming it would do something different or strange. This is a reference to Christopher Nolans 2010 movie, "Inception", a really good movie that I highly recommend for those who like to think.

In the movie the main characters totem is a top that spins but falls in the real world, while in a ream, it would spin forever.

Mine is a singing reindeer plushy XD
