“ In Lewis Carroll’s ‘Alice in Wonderland’, Alice finds herself in a race with the Red Queen. After running for a while she becomes confused as to why she’s remaining in the same spot.“Well, in our country,” said Alice, still panting a little, “you’d generally get to somewhere else if you run very fast for a long time, as we’ve been doing.” “A slow sort of country!” said the Queen. “Now, here, you see, it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that!””
