Alice in Wonderland Syndrome By Mrs Vera West

     I found this story interesting because I have never heard of anything like it before:

“At first, the man couldn't believe his eyes. The icons on his desktop computer were slowly jumping out of his monitor, hovering in the space between him and the screen. For 10 minutes, these icons wavered in his vision before eventually disappearing off to his right side. These strange symptoms and others sent the 54-year-old man to the emergency room, where doctors soon diagnosed him with a curious malady called Alice in Wonderland Syndrome, according to a recent report of the man's case. Typically, Alice in Wonderland Syndrome is triggered by causes including epilepsy, drug intoxication, migraines, psychiatric diseases and infections, the doctors said. But the man's episode is the first known case of the syndrome being caused by a glioblastoma, an aggressive form of brain cancer, the doctors wrote in the report, which was published online Jan. 2 the the journal Neurocase. Just like it sounds, the name Alice in Wonderland Syndrome was taken from the trippy but classic book by Lewis Carroll. Just as the hookah-smoking Caterpillar tells Alice, "One side will make you grow taller, and the other side will make you grow shorter," in reference to a mushroom, people with this syndrome may have "an erroneous perception of their own body, affecting both size and position in the space, as well as alteration of the surrounding environment," the doctors wrote in the report. In the man's case, his Alice in Wonderland episode was followed by a pulsating headache, nausea and extreme sensitivity to light.”

     This poor fellow was suffering from a brain cancer. But more familiar Alice in Wonderland scenarios are seen daily exhibited by the Left, especially feminists who have abandoned the reality principle, and live in a fantasy world, where ideas really do  jump off the pages of cultural Marist textbooks, and ran around the land like sprites, creating havoc.
