"First, there's the room you can see through the glass—that's just the same as our drawing room, only the things go the other way. I can see all of it when I get upon a chair—all but the bit behind the fireplace. Oh! I do so wish I could see THAT bit! I want so much to know whether they've a fire in the winter: you never CAN tell, you know, unless our fire smokes, and then smoke comes up in that room too—but that may be only pretence, just to make it look as if they had a fire."

Lewis Carroll, "Through the Looking Glass"

What can be seen as a conscious touch or manipulation is, instead, an unconscious and almost automated immersive experience towards alienation. Just like Alice, through the looking glass.
