"Follow the White Rabbit.” So says the message on Neo’s computer screen which harkens us back to Lewis Carroll’s Alice and her own fantastic pursuit of the WHITE RABBIT into Wonderland.
Indeed, "follow the white rabbit down the rabbit hole" has become a ubiquitous metaphor for anyone who follows an unlikely clue into extraordinary, amazing circumstances that challenge or transform one’s perspective, reality, or personal beliefs. It could also reference mind-expanding journeys of a chemical nature.
Grace Slick of the psychedelic rock band Jefferson Airplane wrote and sang a song called "White Rabbit" which mentioned Alice in Wonderland, the Red Queen, the White Knight, the Dormouse, and the hookah-smoking caterpillar. "One pill makes you larger, and one pill makes you small" Grace sang. She said the song was about more than just strange trips; it was about following your curiosity and seeing where it leads.
