Why Alice in Wonderland??

why did we have to use the Alice in Wonderland book for practicals? why precisely this book? it always said to use alice in wonderland for different exercises and i always wondered why... once i was so bored with study that i ended up reading the whole book and i became a fan of it :lol: but still it is weird we always had to use this story only... :?
"How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice.

"You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn't have come here."

I don't know if there is an official answer to this question, but I can speculate on a few reasons: first and foremost, contains no ideas that would conflict with LRH's writings; published in 1865, it is a public domain book with no copyright issues; written in simple language, MUs would cause few delays; style and story are amusing and well-known, therefore friendly and entertaining for new people, e.g. Comm Course; LRH was promoting a fantasy in Scn, and this book perhaps provided a way to get people in the mood to be a bit more receptive to LRH's fantasies.
Enjoy your life today,

Alice in wonderland is in a genere called nonsense... and for many years I could easily quote the book without ever having read it cover to cover (though I have recently done so - personal I prefer Through the Looking Glass)

It contains a large number of short self-contained statements, and is thus highly quotable and each section can be understood without reference to other parts of the book. Also because Caroll was logitician, just like Dr Suess, many of the quotes from the book are actually quite meaningful or will at least make you think.


Curious and curiouser for you to ask this question on the day you did... in this style 10/6, time is money and therefore money is time, and if I don't say what I mean, however I mean what I say... 10th June, its Mad Hatters day... but if you missed it, oh well, jam yesterday and jam tomorrow but never jam today.
Freedom is a choice. Choose to be yourself, choose to speak your truth and do so with compassion. And above all else, choose to be not afraid. If I can't dance, its not my revolution.

I can't explain myself, I'm afraid, Sir, because I'm not myself you see. (LOL)

The world is imaginary and the phrases you pick up from it are considered non-abberating, probably you would have no charge on it... Mainly senseless sentences in dialougues considered to be non-restimulative.
