Cobb states that the projections within a dreamer's mind are embodiments of their subconscious, so maybe that's a hint that all of Cobb's team are part of his mind trying to get him to let go of Mal, and Mal and all of the projections out to kill him and his team are the part of his subconscious fighting the urge to let go. - Cobb and Saito are able to remember the meaningful conversations they had and that there is a reality they existed in before Limbo, where both of them had deep desires still waiting to be fulfilled (Cobb and his kids, Saito and his business).
