Is it just me, or does this sound eerily like the White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland?

He stumbles upon an ignorant yet curious Alice and persuades her to enter his "mysterious" world -- none of which makes sense, but could very well represent different aspects of our subconscious.

The first thing I thought of when I saw this card was the connection with Alice in Wonderland and the idea of the naive adventurer. This card strikes me as a warning of sorts. Just like Alice in Wonderland, you should not take the trip unless you are ready to experience some kind of mental & physical anguish that will go along with your learning process.
