: Recently, someone sent me an e-mail and used the expression "I suppose I've got to see what there is down that rabbit hole." What he *seemed* to be getting at was that he realized he might be digging himself into a philosophical or emotional trap, but that he wanted to go ahead anyway. So, what I'm wondering is, is there any general meaning to "down the rabbit hole"? Thanks. - Patty

I would assume (and it is an assumption) that he's referring to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, which begins with curious Alice following the White Rabbit down the rabbit hole.
