Leave it to Guy to be a killjoy and bring up the negative!

Accentuating the positive side of things, there is one theory that Carroll's mind wasn't necessarily enhanced by drugs when he wrote Alice in Wonderland, but it was his way of satirizing/protesting the up and coming study of theoretical and abstract numbers, an idea which he found to be completely absurd and total nonsense. It's a theory (if you'll pardon the choice of word) that has quite a lot of teeth.

Much like the Cheshire cat.
