Bandersnatching

A bandersnatch is a fictional creature in Lewis Carroll's 1871 novel "Through the Looking-Glass" and his 1874 poem "The Hunting of the Snark".


And the Banker, inspired with a courage so new

It was matter for general remark,

Rushed madly ahead and was lost to their view

In his zeal to discover the Snark.


But while he was seeking with thimbles and care,

A Bandersnatch swiftly drew nigh

And grabbed at the Banker, who shrieked in despair,

For he knew it was useless to fly...


As total "game" immersion has begun sweeping us all under the entertainment rug and real-time is becoming our Total Recall, it could be said, much like the hunt for a creature only found in the world behind the looking-glass, that we're chasing a glassland. Oui/ non? Either way, we at TFB say Quail not! After all, they never catch the bandersnatch and the poem is an allegory for happiness and ... reality is all in your mind. Muahahaha.
