Lewis Carroll and Oxford

Just about everything we are fed as children has a lot more to it.

There’s a lot more to the classic children’s story, Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland.

People have trouble grasping that Edward de Vere, the Earl of Oxford, had to use another name. It was unthinkable for Charles Dodgson to use his real name given his social standing, and also it would be an invitation to guess who the characters of his story are based on – that it was very much about Oxford (the place, but a fitting coincidence of the name).

Like our Oxford, Dodgson was also a Rosicrucian (rose + cross) – the love of looking for the answers in the physical universe and then hiding the interpretations in your work (Rosencrantz in Hamlet).

And would Dodgson’s work have made it possible for a lot of people to make lots of money out of it in modern times if the general public knew more about what made him tick, including his nude child photography?

No wonder we have entrepreneurial spinmeisters that kindly rewrite history for us. It begs the question, how accurate is any of the history they tell us. As John Kennedy used to say, “I know 50% of what they are telling me is bullshit, but which 50%?!”

Wouldn’t it be nice for some All Powerful Super-Educator (you know, it would have to be like a comic book superhero that has not even been invented yet) to weed out the lies, using his magical impostor exposer calculator machine.

Google the work of David Day – he has identified a whopping 7 layers to Dodgson’s work, which he relates to modern video games, to boot.
