|Time is something to consider.|
When Alice falls down the rabbit hole in Lewis Carroll's ALICE IN WONDERLAND, she lands in a hallway that appears perfectly normal until strange things begin to happen; when my protagonist, sixteen-year-old, Allana, takes a terrifying plunge, she winds up in the mythical Land of Alon where strange things also happen.
|Alice finds a door behind a curtain. Allana finds doors that cannot be opened.|
My main character is so confused by all that happens to her, she winds up in a mental facility. Carroll's Alice is so disoriented by the dislocation in time and space, she weeps a pool of tears.
|What seems to be isn't; what isn't seems to be. It's all a puzzle.|
|Time does not go in a straight line.|
Albert Einstein revealed that space and time, as physical constructs, must be combined into a new mathematical/physical entity called space-time. The equations of relativity show that both the space and time coordinates of any event must be combined together by the mathematics in order to accurately describe what we see.
