Rabbit Hole/Rabbit

we all herd of the phrase “down the rabbit hole”. but what can some of symbolism be?  2 holes or a gate.  one possible explanation could be, The mouth and rectum . things enter and pass, A gate that can allow one to pass or enter,  The ear and Eye.  I know in pushing the limit of metaphorical comparisons. Traditionally, rabbits are associated with fertility, sentiment, desire, and procreation. Rabbit meanings are also closely linked to the seasons, the changes of Mother Earth, and specifically Springtime. Have you ever heard the term “madder than a March hare?”.   In Buddhist culture, it is said that the Buddha, disguised as a hare, threw himself in a fire as sacrifice to the god Indra. His reward was to live an eternal life as the moon.

The ancient Mayans thought the moon’s change of phase resembled the motion of a jumping rabbit. . If you’ve held a rabbit, you know their hearts beat very fast and hence they are often associated with people who have highly sensitive, extremely alert, and very cautious personalities. Luck and Knowledge are associated as well with the Rabbit.  Down the Rabbit hole  is often seen as meaning, deep search of knowledge. It could in my opinion by seen and linked to ancient “Star-Gates”
