    Ah, Black Seng, you must have been listening to NPR. They just did a whole show on "Science Friday" where the researcher collects data from pilots in a centrifuge. They go from like 4 G to 12 G until they Black Out. Obviously the military wants to know things like when do pilots black out, under what circumstances, how long etc... but this particular researcher was interested in the "non-military" aspects of what these (hundreds) of pilots experience. So, he started collecting data on them that didn't have direct military application.

    One of the things he found, which was one of the major components of the show, was that there was a common theme among pilots that blacked-out. They would "awake" and find themselves outside the centrifuge, watching themselves inside the centrifuge. Other pilots had stories of how they blacked-out while actually in flight (in real airplanes) and they would find themselves on the cockpit or outside on the wing, watching themselves fly the plane.

    The NPR show was 2 days ago. Now you are posting this. I figure, something is going on.

    Inception is a nice movie, but there's more to this then just that.
