Life imitating art

Having been learning a lot about consciousness, psychedelics, and the origins of computing recently I had my head done in this afternoon by Brandersnatch, the first episode of the new Black Mirror series.

Watching the gob smacking programme I wondered what the origin of the word Brandersnatch was.

Apparently unconnected, recently read references to Alice in Wonderland in Jed McKenna's Theory Of Everything mean that my unread copy of The Annotated Alice is on my desk.

But now, in my current kindle reading by Greg Goode on non-duality I stumble across the following from Lewis Carrol"s Jabberwocky.

“Beware the Jabberwock, my son
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!”

It's all too much…
