Alice in code

Postby Down Under » Sat Jun 04, 2005 11:28 am

Here are just a few ideas to throw at you:
along the lines of "Alice isn't just a childrens book theme"

BOOK ACTION- REAL LIFE THEME

Alice grows taller - The taller Alice becomes the greater her fame and recognition is

The symbol of fire - This is an indication of someones wealth


OF COURSE THERE IS MORE TO THINK OF- BUT I'M TIRED AT THE MOMMENT- So i'll let you think for me! AIW(:-*

Well ok - pehaps i'm thinking to much about the disney version of the story-but for example i'll use the caucus race and their ambition to get dry as their code to get rich maybe. (a surreal version of a stock exchange market you could say)

damn straight in her spirit! :D

Hmm.. there's also such a thing as trying to over-analyse Alice in Wonderland ;)

Said Humpty.

"Ah well! They may write such things in a book..."

"When I use a word," Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, "it means just what I choose it to mean--neither more nor less."

"The question is," said Alice, "whether you can make words mean so many different things."

"The question is," said Humpty Dumpty, "which is to be master--that's all."

Martin Gardner annotates:

"Even in logic and mathematics, where terms are usually more precise than in other subject mattters, enormous confusion often results from a failure to realize that words mean "neither more nor less" than what they are intended to mean. "

Check out Carroll's 'Symbolic Logic' and the passage on page 165 "straight from the broad mouth of Humpty Dumpty".
