I'm wondering about you, Alice

Everybody knows the girl named Alice, and everybody knows she is in Wonderland. But I'm sure most of them don't know why she is in Wonderland, and they don't know the meaning of 'Alice in Wonderland'. Actually, where is Wonderland? It's quite confusing. It really makes me curious.

Well, some people may say I think too much about this girl, and her 'Wonderland'. But I guess the author created this story for something. I heard from some people that the author is crazy, that's why his story becomes confusing and have ambiguous meaning. They say, this story doesn't make sense. The question is, if it's so, why does this story become so popular? But still, not all of them know the meaning and the story.

If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary-wise; what it is it wouldn't be, and what it wouldn't be, it would. You see? -Alice (Alice in Wonderland)

Every time I watch a Disney movie, all I do is figuring out the personality and finding something unique in every characters. But for Alice, I can't. I'm just so curious about her, like she's curious about White Rabbit she chased. There's something in her that is very very unique, but I don't know what. I'm just wondering how she could go to the Wonderland. I guess, the real author has been in that place before. No?

I keep rewatching it for many times. I always try to follow the flow, wherever she goes, but it always becomes more confusing. She just followed the White Rabbit, until she met the blue caterpillar, the Mad Hatter, March Hare, the Queen, the Cheshire Cat (this is the second character I'm curious after Alice), and more strange creatures. Alice just talked with one strange creature, nothing happened, then she moved to another strange creature. The question is, what is the point of all of them?

Oh Alice, I wish someday I could understand why you have that land. I just want to know more about the world of your own.

Whether the story be a fairy-tale, metaphor or other, can relate to sometimes following a sign when being curious like Alice and it leading one away from the usual everyday life...With that choice, one will meet many strange characters and their thoughts being vice versa as one traverses foreign lands.

Why? Why did the rabbit appear in front of Alice?
