“When I do not know who I am, I serve you.
When I know who I am, I am you”
Hanuman in Ramayana (750–500 B.C.)

“Imagine a multidimensional spider’s web in the early morning covered with dew drops. And every dew drop contains the reflection of all the other dew drops. And, in each reflected dew drop, the reflections of all the other dew drops in that reflection. And so ad infinitum. That is the Buddhist conception of the universe in an image.” Alan Watts (1915–1973)

In the mirror of the Buddha, I see a boy. He looks like me. He talks at me. To find the wisdom of Anatta, I visited a Buddhist master. He gifted me this mirror. I know Anatta means non-self, but I still do not understand what that non-self means. He claims that this mirror of the Buddha could help me give insight into non-self.
I should be grateful, but I do not think I am grateful…

Figure 0 Run, Alice! Before you lose the white rabbit out of your sight!


Let me guide you through my journey, how I went from solving a puzzle of CodinGame, to making a small application in Mendix, while I illustrate Breadth First Search. First, we go to the wonderland of Alice.

Alice followed the rabbit down the hole, into the mysterious wonderland of CodinGame. The rumors of this realm say that it is filled with strange programmers solving trivial programming challenges to try out all kinds of algorithms, such as Breadth First Search (BFS), see figure 1.
