But that doesn´t explain why cobb´s totem kept spinning in the end, indicating that he was still asleep.

I thought that Fisher didn't die but was in a comatose, because they can't send him a level deeper and revive him with the kick, same with Ariadne, because when Cobb dies at the level four and washes up on Limbo, he and Saito presumably kill themselves, they end up in reality. That's just what I thought...

There is another theory that in the plane is actually still in a dream, in which that could point out to why the top spins and mysteriously, we don't know if it falls or not. Who dreamed the plane?

But someone is only awake in a dream if it is his/her own dream. Limbo, on the other hand, is shared with the people dreaming it. In the plane, all of them are awake. We still don't know if it is reality or not, and the movie shows a mystery at the end. Reality is a dream? Or the dream is reality?

now I'm mindf*cked.

Oh my gosh, thank you! I had a jumbled up idea of what happened, but now it's all clear in my head. Yay!

Wow, this helped me alot. Thanks so much!! I really appreatate it.
The only thing I'm sort of still confused about is that at the end of the movie, Cobb finally gets to live with his kids. When he spins his top thing, it should fall since he is in reality. However it dosent, meaning he's not in reality...

The top is shown neither continuing to spin nor falling at the end of the movie. It begins to wobble as the camera tilt-pans onto it, and then before we can see the outcome, the movie cuts to black. The point is that we don't know if the top fell or continued to spin, the movie ended before we could find out.

Ohhh, I get it now. Thanks! =)
Personally, I hope the top falls. ^^

What about Cobb's totem that was still spinning at the end of the movie. I'm still scratching my head with that one. If it keeps spinning, he's dreaming, right?

The point of the end of the movie was that it cut off before the audience could see if the top fell or not.
