DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE OVER THE RAINBOW & QUANTUM LEAP

Republished by Blog Post Promoter

 To go Down The Rabbit Hole is to enter a period of chaos or confusion.  The expression is an allusion to Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, published in 1865.

Over the rainbow” is a state of total, irrevocable madness or delusion.  The phrase is from the film “The Wizard of Oz“, in which Dorothy is transported into another world entirely unconnected from her reality.  The film is based on The Wonderful Wizard of Oz,an American children’s novel written by author L. Frank Baum in 1900.

A “Quantum Leap” is when you find yourself in the middle of a situation where you have no idea what is going on, but everyone else around you assumes you do.

The term “quantum leap” is a reference to the TV show of the same name where the lead character is trapped in time and travels therein by leaping into the body of someone in the past, but having no idea who he is or why he is there. In order to leave the body, the lead character must figure out what “situation/conflict” must be resolved or wrong must be righted by the host body. The people around him assume he is the person whose body he occupies, so anything he does, the people around him think it is the host body doing it.
