Lewis Carroll,creative writer of Alice in Wonderland was both a mathematician and logician…paradoxically,he takes on a fantasy journey through an imaginative world rarely found in children’s literature…but who would be better qualified to understand absurdity,irrationality and the illogical world than a mathematician and logician?…science is now becoming aware that rational thinking is often inappropriate to understand the universe we live in not to mention the society in which we identify and belong.

“Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?”
“That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,” said the Cat.
“I don’t much care where-” said Alice.
“Then it doesn’t matter which way you go,” said the Cat.
“As long as I get somewhere,” Alice added as an explanation.
“Oh, you’re sure to do that,” said the Cat, “if you only walk long enough.”

“A question that sometimes drives me hazy:am I or are the others crazy ?” ~ Albert Einstein

Let me see: four times five is twelve, and four times six is thirteen and four times seven is – oh dear! I shall never get to twenty at that rate! However, the Multiplication Table doesn’t signify: let’s try Geography. London is the capital of Paris, and Paris is the capital of Rome, and Rome – no, that’s all wrong, I’m certain! I must have been changed for Mabel!

“Sometimes I’m confused by what I think is really obvious. But what I think is really obvious obviously isn’t obvious.~ Michael Harwood

I wonder if I’ve been changed in the night? Let me think: was I the same when I got up this morning? I almost think I can remember feeling a little different.But if I’m not the same, the next question is ‘Who in the world am I?’ Ah, that’s the great puzzle!

I dreamt once that I was a butterfly, flying about enjoying myself…I did not know it was me, Suddenly I awoke, and I did not know whether it was me dreaming that I was a butterfly, or whether I was the butterfly dreaming that it was me.~ Chuang Chou.

“But I don’t want to go among mad people,” Alice remarked.
“Oh, you can’t help that,” said the Cat:
“we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad.”
“How do you know I’m mad?” said Alice.
“You must be,” said the Cat, “or you wouldn’t have come here.”

“What sane person could live in this world and not be crazy” ~ Ursula Le Guin
