Chronological children and their questions present invaluable challenges for people, at any age, to problematise what surrounds them and even to think differently. Just as happens with Alice, we are faced with paradoxes, events that have happened and others that have yet to happen. We are living in “Alice-like” times, escaping from the chronological present, rejecting thinking that is divided between a before (past) and an after (future): a thinking that stretches and extends the present, in search of that wonderful thing that is lost time.
