Last night I dreamed that a resident of the Looking Glass World had entered our own. Everything about her was right-handed, including her genetic makeup. The problem in the dream was that, since everything (or most things) in our world are left-handed--that is the twist of the Double Helix of the amino acids of animals and plants curve to the left--and when something either artificially or naturally curves to the right it is either poisonous or simply unusable to our bodies as nourishment, what was she to eat? As I recollect, she could drink waterwhich has no handedness but she could not derive nourishment from our food. I worried about her all night.
