AC: Brotherhood - a more apt comparison

This was obviously meant to go in the last piece, but I might as well bring it up now - if we're going to compare AC:B to anything, why not Inception?  As long as you ignore the distinction between "dream" and "meta-history", you're more or less in the same conceptual ballgame, with layers upon layers of reality stacked on top of each other.  I think there's even a flat-out "dream-within-a-dream" reference in Desmond's first extended sequence.

More to come on this, obviously, if it ends up being something worth pursuing.
