Hello Again Alice

It seems to me that everyone in this wonderland somehow recognizes Alice. It’s obvious that there aren’t any other normal looking young girls running around the wonderland but still no one makes a big deal out of it. It’s like they’re all used to it. Almost like they know Alice from the past, or have seen her before. Perhaps there is an explanation for this.

Maybe Alice also knows who everyone in the wonderland is… subconsciously. Maybe Alice is dreaming or has dreamed about each one of these somewhat fairy tale creatures and is just thinking about them all at once while she is asleep. In fact the King of Hearts says “she’s just a little girl”. All the creatures know exactly what Alice is, however she is the only one of her. Maybe further along in the story we learn that Alice has actually been to this Wonderland before and just doesn’t remember or it was one of those dreams that you have but you just can’t quite recall what all was in it.

Now I know this next explanation sounds weird but I’ve seen it in movies before, when a parent or other relative to the main character has been somewhere before and somehow that’s how all the creature’s know of Alice. So maybe, somewhere hidden in this mixed up mashed up confusing plot, Alice’s mother or unknown sister  has been there (?). Yes I know, a very hard concept to grasp, and it is kind of jumping to conclusions but there has to be an explanation for all the beings in the Wonderland knowing who and what Alice is. It just strikes me as odd that there isn’t  another one of her (maybe it hasn’t been mentioned yet?). I will have a follow up comment when I finish the story on what my thoughts are about it then.

    You may be on to something. Odd familiarities undercutting our sense of what’s normal. If what *should be* familiar no longer is, and what should be strange is strangely familiar, what does it all mean for everything we think we know? Memory, personal history, home?

    That is an interesting thing that you’ve noticed. It reminds me a little bit of Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe and does bring up all sorts of questions. Thanks for bringing this up!
