Yes you're right, the Architect was not Deus ex Machina.
As for "Inception", I think Cobb was in Reality. Don't you think so? But maybe the point of the ambiguous ending was to impress upon us that Cobb chose the circumstance where he could be the happiest with the love of his children. Essentially, he chose his own reality. Like we all do in every moment.
Very intuitive Kola, and you are correct.
This from the site " Screenrant"
Everybody and their grandmother wanted to know what Christopher Nolan truly intended, specifically with his ending. Was Leonardo Dicaprio’s character, Cobb, still in the dream-world? Or was he in that weird half-sleep, half-awake state where gremlins sit on your chest and talk to you?
Now, Sir Michael Caine claims to have the inside-track. While promoting his new autobiography on BBC Radio’s The Chris Moyles Show, Caine said of Inception’s ending:
“[The spinning top] drops at the end, that’s when I come back on. If I’m there it’s real, because I’m never in the dream. I’m the guy who invented the dream.”
